Fishing bear lodge is a great cabin - I highly recommend it. Reservations and payments were very easy and communications with the managers were very quick and prompt. The lodge is secluded and fairly private, but easy to find and only 20 minutes from downtown Murphy. The furnishings are plush and not worn, the beds very comfortable, and all appliances are new. Plus the kitchen is well stocked for a weeks worth of cooking. Overall, this place is a great deal and a hidden gem in the southern Smokey Mountains.
We were in town for one night to go rafting on the Ocoee and we found this lodge. It is the best place we have ever stayed. Spacious, stylish, wonderful beds, easy to reach hosts, smooth and easy check-in, everything you could need even toys for small kids if needed. Just an amazing place! We want a longer stay here! It is so beautiful, the scenery and the cabin. There are so many small touches all over the lodge that make it a very special stay. We will be back. If you have the opportunity to stay here don’t pass it up!
Happened to be in the area for some last minute rafting down the Ocoee River. Needed a place to stay the night before and stumbled upon the Fishing Bear Lodge. The home owners answered my request in about 5 minutes, were on top of sending all the details needed for a pleasant stay. Location of the house we perfect for being close to the rafting and zip-line. The neighborhood was great and it felt like we were in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, but wasn't too far to get into town. Everything was perfect inside. Would love to stay again.
We wish wed had a week there. It was the cleanest, most beautiful, home we have ever seen. Nothing was left out to make our stay exceptional. It truly felt like a home away from home. Our intent was to relax, rewind, and refresh. Our time tgere went way beyond those expectations. Book now because we hope to return soon. God Bless, kirk and sherry
