We were looking for a secluded place for family to get together and do outdoor activities since we've been separated and stuck indoors due to COVID. This property was perfect for us. There was plenty of space for us to spread out and have privacy, yet there were several options for hanging out together. Our two favorites were the lower level porch with the fire pit and rocking chairs and The enclosed porch on the main level for eating together and playing card games. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare food, plus some food storage containers and some spices. There were plenty of towels, blankets and pillows. We loved that there were both a gas and a charcoal grill. As for management and housekeeping, they were great. The place is obviously clean from first inspection, but I thought it noteworthy to share that when I dropped something between the headboard and the mattress and went to retrieve it, there was no dust under the bed. Also, on our first night, two of the lights on the enclosed porch went out. We brought out the lamps from the living room and notified management. The next day, someone came by with replacement bulbs. They took good care of us, and we would definitely recommend this rental. A note: Renters in July and August should be aware that while there is AC in the house, two of the bedrooms don't have AC units and will likely get hot. It was cool during our late June visit, but I could see those rooms getting uncomfortable in late summer.

The photos of this property were perfect. We knew exactly what sort of accommodations we would have. With 10 people we were able to “spread out”. Of course the sun room/porch was utilized the most. We all took advantage of the nearby tubing adventure as well as the community pond/lake. The weather was rather wet but we just wanted to relax anyway. This is a property we would definitely rent again. Thanks!

Our friends had a great time at this cabin! Very close to the New River and 20-25 minutes to West Jefferson. This cabin can accommodate a very large group and was very clean. We were able to sit on the porch and had a great view of deer grazing in the woods. We enjoyed the propane fire pit and pool table. The only problem we had was with TV service. We attempted to watch live sports each night after our daytime activities, but the TV Service didn't have normal channels. Other than that it was a great stay.

This house is a great place for large family groups. We never felt like we were crowded, and there are multiple places to gather in the house. When we arrived, it was very clean throughout and tastefully appointed. The upstairs living room is open to the kitchen, and I could make dinner and talk with everyone in the living room. The kitchen had everything we needed. The downstairs man room had a sectional, TV, pool table and game table. After the kids went to bed, we all went downstairs and didn't disturb the upstairs sleepers. The sun porch is my favorite place, personally. The porch has a cozy seating area and a long dinner table that seats 10 people. The porch was a nice place to open the windows, enjoy mountain breezes, and have coffee in the morning. It felt like you were in the trees. In the main living area, there is also a table that seats 6. We enjoyed the porch lights and sitting on the lower back deck at night, making s'mores over the fire table. We had a great time tubing the New River. We put in at Cranberry Springs Bridge and got out in front of Fleetwood Falls. The pond in the neighborhood was great for fishing and swimming. Boone and West Jefferson are nearby and have interesting things to do. The house is on a mountain, but the roads are very well maintained and paved. There is plenty of easy access parking in front of the house. It was a great vacation, and we definitely plan to return.

The house was very roomy! Enough space for little ones to separate in the evenings from adult noises. We enjoyed feeding the fish in the lake.

Beautiful house with everything we needed! Spacious house with comfortable beds and stylish space. Definitely want to return!

We had a great time at this house. The leaves were changing for Fall so going on walks in Fleetwood Falls and driving around was nice. We enjoyed the fire table and the sunporch. There was plenty of space for our group to spread out inside the house. We had 4 cars and a trailer and were all able to park easily. We liked several restaurants in West Jefferson and went to Blowing Rock a few times. The house was clean, and the management company was helpful. We plan on renting this home again.

We absolutely loved staying here. The house was very clean, gorgeous, and beds were super comfortable. We were thrilled when we arrived and it was decorated for Christmas. We will return.

We recently stayed a week a “Bear Valley” cabin. The place was absolutely perfect to spend my birthday week! I loved the vintage feel to the cabin along with the beautiful decor. They went the extra mile to set up several Christmas trees that made the stay even more cozy and special! Upon arrival I noticed everything was very clean which is always a plus! The kitchen has plenty of room to cook in and the house is plenty big enough for a few families. The location is perfect, not too far from Boone or West Jefferson so you get the best of both little towns! I would recommend Bear Valley to anyone!

We stayed here for the Christmas holiday and had an amazing time. It was as comfortable as it is beautiful. If you are looking for a place to help you make a family vacation memorable this is it!

Bear valley is AMAZING. We were a group of 10 and had a wonderful time. We parked 5 cars with no problem in the front. It was more than enough space so we could lounge around. The staff is super sweet and always there to assist! My only advice to other travelers, try to get to this location during the day. The road is very narrow and curvy with no guard rails or lights.

Easy online reservations. Customer service answered my questions in a timely and friendly manner. Had a great mountain mini vacation with my children, my grandchildren and my parents.
