This place is AMAZING! Definitely worth the stop. Everything is handcrafted by the Native American population that lives nearby. Gorgeous, wonderful things from foods to more! A must stop.

This is a great place. Owners were very nice. I was looking for Charlie Reed carvings and found two here. Will definitely go back.

This was a second visit made to Bearmeats' Indian Den and for one simple reason and that is authenticity. I doubt you're going to find a "made in China" sticker anywhere in this store. Beaver, racoon, and other hide hats and accessories, as well as...More

Lots of local honeys and jams. Good selection of native craft items. Open year round. Several different preserved meats like country ham and pork belly. Parking is a bit rough as it's right on a big curve on the mountain side.

The staff was very friendly and seemed to greet and have small talk with everyone that came in. Lots and lots of boxes of apples outside. My favorite part was that the apples were local as they had "Waynesville, NC" on the outside of each...More

We really enjoyed stopping at Bearmeat's! It was a beautiful place with lots of amazing art and gifts. We picked up some blackberry cider which was out of this world. Everyone was really friendly. I definitely recommend stopping by if you get a chance.

I hesitate even calling it a store, because it is really a cultural experience! The handcrafted items are exquisite, and the clerks are so engaging. This visit was our second annual trek, and we will surely be back next year.

We stopped here after driving the Blue ridge Parkway. The best assortment of souvenirs, food, books and the most friendly staff. I bought several items here to take home. I will definitely stop here again if ever in the area.

One of the best places to find authentic and beautiful art. They also have a beautiful selection of high quality Native American flutes. Make it a point to stop in and see everything. You won't be disappointed.
