“Charming, cozy cabin”
Reviewed August 9, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This delightful rental is secluded and yet minutes from all the fun. The perfect location to relax and get away, or participate in all the experiences (rafting, tubing, zip line, trail hikes, shopping and more) North Georgia has to offer. The Bear Affair easily accommodates couples, small families or a girlfriends weekend trip. The attention to detail and all the superior amenities in the cabin make this rental an excellent choice.

“Absolutely Wonderful Cabin!”
Reviewed June 2, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

2 nights was not a long enough stay. The Bear Affair is an absolutely wonderful cabin. At the end of a secluded road, there is no traffic from other renters. Travel to the very end and you will find yourself in the parking area directly ahead of a beautiful little place. One look around and you will see how well maintained the area is. There are little secrets all about, including in the surrounding woods. Without giving any away suffice it to say that the fact there is lighting off the "beaten path" simply adds to the detail.
Inside the cabin itself it is immediately obvious the care and love and attention to detail that the owners have put and continue to put into this gem. Just can't say enough! From the branches and lights in the ceiling of the kitchen to the fact that any possible kitchen item you could ever need is right there. Did the name say Bear? Yeah, there are bears. I couldn't believe the nick nacks that fit the motif, but with absolute taste and fitting with the theme. Bear paw holes in the stair rails!
Historical photos on the walls to the historic book detailing the cabin's history are really interesting details.
Oh, and not to leave out the best part by far (and with so much good, how can one pick a best?)... the outdoor living room! This is what really caught my attention when I was searching for a cabin, and this is what will be bringing us back to The Bear Affair. Like a covered deck but no screened in porch, this is so nice. Cushioned couch and cushioned chairs, ceiling fan, hot tub! Lights in the ceiling as well, this is where we spent our time. Open air to the forest, glass of wine, pure heaven!
The proximity to Helen and the area attractions is not quite walking distance, but that's not what I wanted. 10 minutes to downtown Helen, through a national park is exactly what I wanted and exactly what this place offers. Proximity and seclusion in one.
I can not say enough good things about The Bear Affair! We will be back!

“AMAZING!! BEAUTIFUL!! QUAINT!! SECLUDED!!”

What a lovely cabin!! We had the pleasure to stay in The Bear Affair from 1/26/17 - 1/30/17. We couldn't have asked for a more well-stocked cabin. It has everything!! We could've done a lobster boil with the pots and pans provided. The decor is sweet, but not too overdone. The bed was super comfortable; so much that I slept in every day! But, my favorite part was the outdoor living patio... nothing like a quick dip in the Jacuzzi and a glass of wine. Another plus is the cabin's proximity to Helen. 7 minutes and you're in downtown. Loved it!! Would definitely recommend it and will definitely be back!

“Felt Like Home Not A Rental”

I've stayed at this perfect little cabin on several occasions and each time is better than the rest. You can tell the owner love this cabin by the way it's taken care of. It's hard to get a reservation so book early. Pictures are currant and portray the cabin as you will find it. Warm, cozy, inviting, secluded and well appointed. Doesn't get better than this.

Absolutely perfect! Stayed here for our honeymoon. The view is stunning, as the cabin is isolated in the woods. The hot tub is a great place to chill. Words cannot express how much we loved this place. We'll definitely be back as soon as we can!
