Hidden just outside the wonderful country town of West Jefferson lies a place of beauty and relaxation. Away from the rigors of city life, Bear Ridge is a mountain getaway cabin with all the amenities for a peaceful stay. This home-away-from home is special to our family, and we hope it will become a special place for you as well...filled with wonderful memories of another way of life. Sit on the back porch overlooking Grandfather Mountain, feeling the gentle breeze of cool mountain air on your skin. Relax by the fire, nestled in the big leather sofa reading a good book. Play board games with the family instead of going out for the evening. Take in the beauty of our wildlife, from deer to birds to goats next door. Enjoy a soak in the hot tub while overlooking mountain views. Fish with your son in the New River, teaching him how to bait a hook or cast a reel for the first time. Or go for a hike up the mountain trails to convene with nature and nourish your mind and soul.

A complete kitchen and fresh linens will make your first day with us easy – just unpack and start your vacation. Stop by Ingles grocery for meals at home, or visit one of West Jefferson's downtown restaurants. For those who can't leave modern toys behind, high speed Wi-Fi Internet access, satellite television with TIVO, DVD and CD players, and PlayStation await you.

Named after our most beloved Kekko "Bear", we hope you'll come to love our Bear Ridge cabin as much as we do.
