A little intimidating getting back to the property..."an adventure" for sure! I turned around twice unsure if this was the right road....but believe me...you just keep on going! What you find at the end of the road will be GUARANTEED to make up for it....heaven....truly heaven...and so clean, furnished with the finest of everything! The bed and leather couch and recliner will amaze you! Then there's the porches...and the log swing..oh my! It's so quiet and the sounds of nature abound.....and the boat...they just thought of everything! The fishing is great, too! There aren't enough words to describe this place.... know this is your GO TO place for sure! Thanks sooooo much Fred and Janice for making my stay unforgettable!

Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful and mostly quiet, romantic getaway cabin retreat. Enjoyed exploring the grounds around the lake with some rocks and caves. Absolutely gorgeous. The only thing I would say in a negative light was things were a bit run down outside. Grant it we may have been the first to stay after the winter season and possibly they hadn’t gotten things together quite yet. But the boat with motor was not out/available. There was a battery on the dock and the boat was on land. There was no information available how to “rent” or take out the canoe. The paddle boat was on land upside down also. Please don’t respond with you could have called for this. I shouldn’t have to call for this. It should be readily available as advertised. The only other thing is the owner brought his “loud” tractor out Sunday afternoon while we were trying to enjoy the serenity of it all sitting on the lovely deck swing overlooking the lake. Totally bad timing. The back deck is awesome and I even got a little fishing in. They advertised to bring your own charcoal when in fact there was a nice propane grill. Full size bed, not queen, hard for us to adjust to but no biggie. Overall I would stay here again. I just wouldn’t set my sights on the boating.

We had a great time. The cabin was great and very clean. You couldn't ask for more. The lake and surrounding property is absolutely stunning. Fred and Erma have done a wonderful job. Plenty of fish in the lake. Great price.

Beautiful piece of heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing, peaceful time. The cabin was clean, well stocked with everything we needed, and the location was excellent. The owners are quite accommodating, and they keep the private property well maintained. The pond was teaming with several different species of fish. Bring your camera and your fishing pole, and prepare to be pleasantly surprised!

Perfect Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Bear Lair this past weekend and we had an amazing time. This place is perfect for the couple who just wants to get away for the weekend. The water in the lake is so clean and nice for swimming and in the morning you're able to see the bottom which makes for perfect fishing. We caught multiple fish, with one catfish being almost 20lbs. There is a trail right next to the cabin the has multiple caves. It's only about a fifteen minute walk to see them all. The cabin is very clean and well maintained. It's very apparent that the owners take pride in their establishment. It couldn't have been more perfect for my fiancé and myself. We will definitely be returning.
