We made the best memories here. The setting is majestic, the house is perfect. Views to lake unmatched. The house comfortable, and it is vintage. Sort of a time piece. Board games from the 70's, VHS tapes, cassette player and tapes. Loved every minute of it, and the house is super clean too.

We had a wonderful Fall Break at this property. The location is wonderful, central to hiking, grocery store, beautiful lot on the lake. The cabin was very spacious and our two families could separate easily. We enjoyed the fire pits outside, the kitchen is well equipped and the cabin has charm that reminded us of our parents and grandparent's places. We arrived just in time to see the leaves changing, the waterfalls on the lake were wonderful. Very quiet. The laundry is spacious and worked well. We were asked by the owner to take our trash and recycling to the Recycling Center as we left town, which is about 4 miles away. Please know this so you can keep all your recycling separate between glass, cardboard and plastic, also so you can plan ahead. Great place to relax and enjoy North Carolina.

We love the mountains and the lake. Hard to find a place that delivers both AND is pet friendly. Red Bear Cabin delivers! It’s a fantastic location! It’s on the lake and within 25 minutes (or less) of numerous hiking trails and gorgeous waterfalls. Had beautiful lake views (as advertised). We used the kayaks and the chimnea pot. Also, just a 10-minute drive to Cashiers and roughly 30 to Highlands. Enjoyed the eclectic and vintage decor. Kitchen and bathrooms are updated (as advertised). The best stocked kitchen we’ve encountered. Owner Mike was very responsive and helpful. Already planning a return trip!

Stayed in red bear cottage for 6 nights with 4 adults and three teens, perfect size for this group. Right on Lake Glenville and 2.5 miles to Cashiers. Classic mountain lake cottage with beautiful views, outdoor grille and fire pit.

We were right on the Lake with a gentle slope to the Boat dock & Lower patios. Easy to get around see the waterfalls & visit the Nearby villages of Glenville & Cashiers. The home is well equipped & perfect for 2-7 persons. We were 7. We hope to come back next year. Mike & Mark & the cleaning crew were the best. They have good info. of the area & are from the area. The sunset cruise was a perfect finally night. Hugs! J&M & Crew

Thanks for a great week! Kitchen was well stocked and we appreciated the fun personal touches throughout the house. The setting is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on the various patios as well as the dock. We made use of the kayaks (which was wonderful) and made s'mores in the chimerea.
