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.

This is an authentic Native American store. Forget the "made in china" crappy imports in the main strip! This is the real deal! The handmade soaps and creams are amazing. I stock up on the cracked hand cream and MSN cream (perfect for muscle soreness after a workout!) The owners and staff are super helpful and personable. They will even... More

Everything here is hand made or locally made by the Natives. Lots of jams, jerky, pottery and animal skins etc. My husband loves this store. The staff are very friendly and informative about their inventory. I also like that a lot of the products tell about who made them and the story behind them like a clay bear I bought... More

This place has a little of everything. The prices are much here as well. Stop and take a look. Soap, honey, baskets, apples, this and that.

The prices at this place beats everyone else's. We saw some of the same items at other stores in Cherokee and the prices were doubled! You can't beat the friendly service of this place. My husband was about to buy a walking stick and the man that works there informed him he had the wrong size for his height. We... More

My daughter and I loved this shop! You don't find a bunch of knick knack, "made in China" junk at this store. You find genuine, quality craftsman gifts made by Americans, Native Americans at that! I only wish that I had more time and money to spend when I happened upon this gem of a store on our way to... More

When in Maggie Valley or Cherokee we always stop at Bearmeat's Indian Den. This is a little shop on the mountain road between Maggie Valley and Cherokee. The drive is beautiful and the shop is fantastic. All products in this shop are local made or grown. This is not your average shop selling Chinese made products. The local crafts people... More

We've shopped at Bearmeats many times over the years and always find it interesting and loaded with locally made real American Indian hand made crafts. The folks are very friendly and are always glad to help you find something to remember your stay at Cherokee. This is my choice of shops to go to in Cherokee. Some of the other... More

As you are traveling from Waynesville up to Cherokee you will see a ton of signs about stopping at Bearmeat's Indian Den - DO IT - I was very impressed with all the handmade Native American items this lovely shop had to offer. This is not the typical tourist shop. It is very large so take your time and see... More

Enjoyed the stop immensely. Very well organized, interesting, lots of local items. Loved the Muscadine Cider. Worth stopping in. Not over priced like some local shops. Not filled with made in China merchandise.
