“endroit paisible (peaceful place)”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was a great trip!!! The cabin location was great. It was down from the lake and shortcut close to TN borders( within 7 minutes). The cabin itself was a great atmosphere. I wanted a place where my son could relax away from electronics. Don't get me wrong they had all the electronic amenities. I just wanted them not to use them for a family time weekend getaway. I love the loft bedroom that looked over the front room and dining area but the view out the window as I was in bed was awesome. Each bedroom had its own private bathroom. The beds were comfortable. We only used two bedrooms and wind up staying up in one bed talking and laughing. The kitchen I love as I love to cook( however I cook at home and brought food up so I could spend more time with family). We went down stairs and played ping pong, etc and laughed. Also my sister and I went outside on the porched. It was windy but once we were under the blanket( it felt like a warm spring day) and we sat down and just enjoyed the view for what felt like hours. My sister is in college and was stress at her workload. When we got to the cabin that night she said I needed this and this relax me so. She wants to me to plan her vacations as this was her first vacation. We danced downstairs, played charades, and reflex our stories etc. The details of the cabin are on point, I loved the bear tissue holder the most along with the pictures. My mom loved the fireplace and the view. This was her first vacation in over 30 years. I travel a lot but the serene of Fishing bear lodge was a bless and wonderful experience. I cant described enough this treasured experience. It is a must see and must do..Plus there's a lot to do in NC and TN (7mins away). Don't take my word go see for yourself, I highly encourage you!!!

I was looking for a cozy cabin with a beautiful view and that matched my budget. I happened upon Fishing Bear Lodge and it was the perfect match for me. This cabin is not only beautiful and in the perfect location, but it was also spotless clean. It felt like a home away from home. Greg and Paula are absolutely wonderful and very easy to contact if you should need anything or have any questions. They also left us a very cozy welcome gift. If you love coffee, which I do, then this was the most perfect welcome gift.

If you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and come to a piece of paradise in the mountains, then the Fishing Bear Lodge is the perfect place to go. It is Beary Cozy indeed! I will be contacting Greg and Paula again to book one of their cabins. I could not have dreamed up a more perfect vacation. Thank you Greg and Paula for everything!

This cabin a wonderful place to go on vacation. My husband an I loved this place so much that we are renting it again next year. The peace in this cabin was great. The place was very, very clean the kitchen was stocked up with everything we needed. We really out did ourselves with this vacation. This vacation was one of our favorite ones to remember. This cabin had my husband speechless. We got lots of rest and time spent with others. Our pastor and his wife came up and stayed with us they were also speechless. I will give this a A++++++ This is a great place to bring your family to. I loved the Fields of the woods. Great place to visit. Greg and Paula maid everything great. I thank them for being great host! Even booking the cabin was easy no hassle at all. Once again this is a great place to visit my husband and I loved this place. I will see Fishing Bear Lodge again next year.

“Best cabin ever!”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I reserved this cabin for my team's workshop and it was fantastic!
Cozy sofas and bed are ready and wonderful gas grill is waiting for you.
You guys can enjoy pingpong and nice view of mountain. Even Nintendo is in here!
My teammates satisfied with all the things in here and it will be my milestone as well.
Don't hesitate to click the reservation button. You'll never regret it.

The property was nice. gated and secure, part way up the mountain.
It was a ways out of town (murphy) but close to some of the activities we enjoyed, as we had 2 young children. Nearby activities included: Wagonmaster Ranch for gem mining and miniature golf. They have a cool paintgun set up for older kids. Our 3 and 5 year olds even "drove" some small motorized cars. (that was exciting!). We enjoyed the Cherokee recreation and picnic area where we picnicked, hiked and fished. Very nice & close by. We attended the Friendship Baptist church. The kids absolutely loved it. Great playground, loving folks. We went into town and "bumper" bowled one day (Fannins).
Our least favorite thing: Well, my husband got frustrated that we had to drive to walmart so frequently, as it was 14 miles away. We cooked in the entire week. Our favorite thing: I loved the HOUSE. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. Most importantly for us: it was "pet restricted" so we didn't have to worry about everyone's allergies flaring up. Older kids might enjoy the "rec room" in the basement...there is a ping pong table, tv and comfy couches.

This cabin is the only one that is not pet friendly. It is great for folks with allergies. Great location with a side screened porch to view the wild life.
