If you’re like most people, the first thing you look for in a cabin is a great view, and Lazy Bear Overlook has a spectacular one. High on a hillside, surrounded by tall trees, this beautiful tri-level home has majestic long-range mountain vistas in a peaceful, private setting. But what makes it special aside from the visuals is its ideal location, centrally located between Blue Ridge (just ten miles away) and the towns of McCaysville, Ellijay, and Cherry Log, and all the activities the area has to offer. 

You can fish at Fightingtown Creek, go ziplining at Blue Ridge Adventure Park, visit Amicalola Falls, take a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, go riding at Cowgirl Up stables, or sample fruits of the vine at Bear Claw vineyards, which offers live music on weekends. There’s also rock climbing, boating and whitewater rafting nearby, and it’s walking distance to the Benton MacKaye hiking trail.

But you don’t have to leave the premises to have a lot of fun. The cabin has a game room with a wet bar, multi-function game table, board games, puzzles, and two giant TVs equipped with Dish Network. Step outside to test your skill at horseshoes or cornhole, make s’mores by the fire pit, or soak in the hot tub as you take in the view. Fire up the gas grill and feast on the deck, where there’s a picnic table, rockers and a swing chair for two.

Inside, Lazy Bear Overlook is cozy and warm, with a wood-burning fireplace and featuring rich pine wood and rustic decor, with lots of locally carved furniture and hand-crafted items including custom log beds. Not surprisingly, there’s a bear theme that runs throughout (the “Lazy” part of its name is in honor of the owners’ lazy English Mastiff).

Each level has its own bedroom and bathroom, with deck access for each. The upstairs bedroom is in an open loft with a full-size bed, desk and chair, private balcony and private bath with walk-in shower. The main level bedroom has a queen bed and separate bath with tub/shower and a washer/dryer, and the downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and tub/shower in the adjacent bathroom. 

The kitchen is spacious and fully stocked with an electric stove/oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, ice trays, coffeemaker, and all the cooking equipment and serving and dining implements you need for a family dinner, midnight snack, or entertaining a crowd. The dining table seats 8.

The cabin also features wireless internet, ceiling fans throughout, and a paved driveway. It’s pet friendly, so you can bring up to two dogs with you to enjoy your mountain vacation in this mountain paradise.

 Great cabin and superb weather before the cabin rush crowds. We love going to the cabins in August and September while the weather is still good and the trees are still vibrant green.

We loved the location of the cabin, at the top of the mountain with the most beautiful view. We LOVED the hot tub and used it every night. The fire pit with chairs is perfect. The overall layout of the cabin is great with a bedroom on each floor.

Our stay at Lazy Bear Overlook was at the back end of a 5000 mile road trip. It was lovely to listen to the Katydids at night while sitting by the fire or in the hot tub after hiking and swimming/tubing during the day in the surrounding area.

The house was very comfortable in every way. Beds were comfortable, hot tub was wonderful, lots of entertainment options - board games, foosball/multigame table, peaceful rocking chairs on the decks, wonderful fire ring setup in the yard, nice walking trail through the woods behind the house, and every kitchen amenity we needed.

The cabin was so much better than we could have imagined. It felt like home the moment we arrived. The amenities and supplies were awesome. Of course the attention to detail and constant communication by all staff was what made this trip the best! We will be booking another trip very soon!
