We are unsure of why the negative ratings. We stayed at Bear Creek Cabins, specifically, The Treehouse. If you want Luxury, I would suggest staying at a Country Club. This cabin was beautiful and is not misrepresented in the least. It is a CABIN, and it is in the WOODS, and it is on a MOUNTAIN, and you wake up in the treetops. Not sure what people are thinking when they arrive here, but it is exactly what it states. The cabin is beautiful inside and out. We were here the week of July 4th, 2012 and were pleaseantly surprised at how nice the cabin is. If there is misrepresentation, it would be that be that we thought it would be more rustic or primitive.
The cabin is stocked with all the ammenities you will need. It has a full kitchen with utensils, cookware, pots and pans, iron, vacuum, towels, linens etc.
I guess I think when I am staying at a cabin, I'm gonna be more primitive, so we were extremely pleased with this cabin.
We thought with no basic cable that we might not be happy, but come to realize, we never even turned the TV on. We were enjoying the town of Helen and being outdoors too much.
The cabin has the smell of wood everytime you enter, which we loved.
Tim and Cindy, the owners, checked on us from time to time to see if we were doing OK or if we needed anything. So, I'm sure the people who were complaining with their reviews, obviously wake up that way on a daily basis, because the owners have bent over backwards to ensure our stay was pleasant and although we didn't need anything, I'm more than confident these two people would have done what it takes to fix any problem we had. Cindy took us on a tour of the cabin when we arrived and gave us a quick run down of how to work everything, like the hot tub, etc.
If you want the feeling of seclusion and being in the mountains with all the ammenities, this cabin is for you. We had one of the best, if not the best vacation here in Helen, GA and that was partly due to the TREEHOUSE cabin and the owners, Tim and Cindy.
I would reccomend this to happy people. If you are not a happy person, you will find something wrong with anywhere you stay and might be better off if you stayed at your own home but you will probably be unhappy there too.
It is nicely furnished and stocked and clean.
And don't forget about the tubing. You can go tubing from the property. Awesome.
We will return and we will stay at the Treehouse, if Tim and Cindy will allow us the opportunity again.
And, pet friendly...........Cooper loved his vacation also.
Thank you Bear Creek Lodge and Cabins for a truly wonderful vacation stay!
The Treehouse cabin is for those who love nature and seclusion. It is a bit of a hike up to the cab...

Our guestbooks have several hundred wonderful comments that guests have left behind,along with their happy memories and footprints,but very few have taken the time to publicly post a response such as yours,and we are eternally grateful- Sometimes it seems as though the negative people speak the loudest,but that makes us work harder to make the place even better.....
We would love to have you back any time you can come to visit, and join the ranks of our happy return guests that we consider our "family of friends" here at Bear Creek Lodge and Cabins !
