53 - Five Bears Den

- -


Five Bears Den is the ultimate mountain log cabin for a family vacation, a large group of friends, or even a corporate retreat.

Spanning three expansive levels, this extraordinary cabin thoughtfully houses two bedrooms on each floor, which offers optimal privacy for multiple families or groups, making it the ideal setting for shared memories and bonding while giving everyone space for privacy.

As you step inside the ground floor your eyes gravitate to the majestic high vaulted ceilings. Coupled with the rich knotty pine and hardwood floors you immediately invoke the feeling of a grand mountain lodge.

This is the heart of Five Bears Den

You'll gaze upon its impeccably designed kitchen. You'll take note of the solid oak cabinets, stainless steel appliances, expansive stone counters, a breakfast island, and a warm dining area.

The main family room has an amazing rock fireplace. Adjacent is a very comfortable sofa, Smart TV, and the main dining room. You'll also find access to the main bedroom. Not to mention multiple adjacent balconies are also here offering stunning 180-degree views.

Ascend to the upstairs bar and wet bar. There you will be entertained by the large Smart TV and seating area. There are also two bedrooms and a full bathroom up there.

Each room in Five Bears Den has been thoughtfully curated to mirror the tranquil beauty of its mountainous surroundings, so guests feel at one with nature even while indoors.

When you descend to the lower level you are met with an oasis of fun. In the game room, full-sized arcade games await. You'll find another wet bar and fridge, and even a popcorn machine. This floor offers two bedrooms and a full bathroom. One of the bedrooms has two amazing bunk beds, perfect for kids.

Outside, the spacious grounds offer plenty of space to walk and have a conversation. On the wraparound redwood decks, you can enjoy some coffee while reading a book. Enjoy a family BBQ. Or immerse yourself in the brand-new hot tub surrounded by boulders.

Whether you’re listening to the melodies of local birds in the morning or catching the golden hues of the sunset from the deck, every moment at the cabin feels like a piece of paradise.

While air conditioning is absent, nature compensates with its own cooling system - the fresh mountain air.

We invite you to escape from the everyday hustle and unwind, rejuvenate, and reconnect with loved ones.

Great Family Time and Great Management!

We really had a wonderful stay. The property was lovely and had so much room for all of us. Very central to get to the ski hills, tubing and into town. We had a couple hiccups, but every time the management got right back to us and had things taken care of. We would definitely stay again!
