You are closer to heaven when you are at Big Bear Lodge! Spectacular views, super accommodations in Banner Elk. Each and every restaurant served incredibly delicious food. Grandfather Mountain is a must see. Take many pictures. Our time at Big Bear Lodge will always be a significant memorable time for our family.- Liz, Posted: 06/19/2012
Wonderful house! Thank you so much for making it so comfortable. We had 10 people and the house allowed all of us to have our own space and never feel crowded!- Cynthia D., Posted: 10/27/2015
By the way, we rented the Big Bear Lodge for my son’s wedding at Linville Ridge, and the home was even more beautiful and amazing in person. We had a great time staying at Big Bear Lodge with our family, and everyone came away impressed by the cabin and thoroughly enjoyed their stay there. It was truly a magical time in our lives, and staying at the Big Bear Lodge made the entire experience a memorable one for us all. Your company was very professional and helpful, and we will definitely use your company again for our next cabin rental. Thank you once again.- Jose, Posted: 01/15/2017
This was an amazing family vacation! We did so many things! It snowed too! We went sledding down a steep hill and built 3 snowmen. On a 1 to 10 scale we give this vacation a 10!! We hope we can come back soon!- Art, Posted: 01/31/2017
Beautiful home in a fabulous setting. Amazing views. Knew we would be too early for fall foliage, but the cool weather was certainly welcome. Close to incredible sights, great dining, and friendly people. We’ll certainly be back.- Curt, Posted: 02/16/2017
We could not have been happier with our stay at Big Bear Lodge at The Lodges at Eagles Nest. Big Bear Lodge was absolutely beautiful and we cannot say thanks enough to the owners for sharing their home with our families. Further the aamenities at The Lodges st Eagles Nest were phenomenal and made us feel as if we were part of a great community. Lastly, the friendly people at Blue Ridge Vacation Cabins are truly fantastic and an absolute pleasure to work with. Thanks to all above for making our stay a remarkable one in every way.- Blaine, Posted: 06/03/2017
We enjoyed your beautiful house in a beautiful setting for a week in mid October. The fall foliage was at its peak making the mountain sides look spectacular. Our family was also here for the 36th annual wooly worm festival. That too was great fun! Thank for opening your home to us. We certainly hope to come back again!- McClogin, Posted: 10/18/2017
Wow! I have been a high end luxury commercial and residential builder for over 20 years! You truly have an amazing home! Details such as the back wall is much appreciated! I also own a NASCAR team and each year our family gets away super bowl weekend before our super bowl begins “Daytona”.- Berryhill, Posted: 05/08/2018
We have thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay at your beautiful home. It just feels good here! It has been so nice to have a peaceful break from the summer heat and the busy pace of Nashville. We wish you many years of wonderful experiences from this special mountainside.- Jen and Cal, Posted: 07/03/2018
The Big Bear was an incredible vacation experience! So well kept and just gorgeous! Very comfortable for even a large group and so organized. Blue Ridge Vacation Cabins was very accommodating. Thank you- Deborah and Scott, Posted: 08/27/2018
Big Bear Lodge exceeded all our expectations! I could not get over how well kept everything was, and all the amenities from Eagles Nest made our vacation wonderful! The house looked better in person, and the kids loved the lowest floor! Pool, Xbox, and other amazing games kept them occupied the entire time, which was a win for us! We will come back again and thank you to Big Bear for sharing your home!- Scott, Posted: 12/28/2018
We enjoyed our stay in the Big Bear Lodge! Great team building and great location to Beech Mountain for Skiing. The house has everything you need! It snowed the whole time we were there, which made it even better. Would love to come back again!- John, Posted: 02/12/2020
Beautiful home. Perfect for hosting our large family. Loved the layout- Walter, Posted: 02/19/2020
The house was very nice and probably one of the cleanest vacation homes I've ever rented. We had plenty of room and the porches were just as described. Perfect! The area was nice and quiet and just added to the wonderful getaway ambiance we were looking for.- Saretha, Posted: 06/16/2020
Awesome stay at Big Bear Lodge for Christmas holiday, with lots of snow on Christmas morning! The house is so beautiful and very well appointed, with lots of attention to detail. We had 8 adults - plenty of room for all. Loved the hot tub, pool table, fires in the fireplaces throughout the house, playing games at the big table. Kitchen has everything you'll need. Would definitely come back!- Cathy, Posted: 01/25/2021
Breathtaking scenery along with an amazing cabin. Our favorite property to date!!- Lance, Posted: 02/01/2021

Great stay at bear lodge. Met up with some friends for a ski weekend, and even though it was rainy and warm, we still made use of all the amenities on the property and the neighborhood , which were outstanding. Spacious house, great for a big group with lots of kids. Would definitely come back- Kristen, Posted: 02/17/2021
