The Master bedroom is on the upper level with a full bath, king size bed, soaking tub and small deck for privacy. The main level is an open layout making a wonderful area to entertain and socialize while making dinner or relaxing. We updated the great room furniture to provide more comfortable seating for our guests, in addition to a comfortable reading area in the loft with great views! The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare and serve meals on the dining table that seats 10, available are a dishwasher, electric coffee pot, crock pots, blender, and mixer.

On the lower level is the game room with queen size sleeper sofa. This room has been recently painted and updated. Enjoy playing board games, watching TV or listening to music with the surround sound while playing a game on the pool table or dart board. The full bath has a tub and in the back room there is a washer and dryer for your convenience. Out the sliding glass doors is a hot tub where you can melt away the aches of the day while watching the chipmunks and birds frolic in the woods or if you are lucky have a deer pass through. The covered deck has a porch swing that is great for sitting and having your morning coffee. On the open deck enjoy barbequing on the new gas grill and dining in the outdoors. Bear Necessity is a pet friendly home and dogs are welcome, but you can never tell that a dog has been in the home due to the surperb cleaning and maintenance of this home. The house has Direct TV, wifi internet access, and state park access passes . On clear evenings a short walk up the road will give you a wonderful view as the sun sets into the mountains and is always worth the calorie burn. So if you are looking for the perfect mix of play and relaxation Bear Necessity is the vacation home for you.

We have learned over our... Read More
