Lifes a Bear hideaway.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this home, Lifes a Bear Hideaway as an escape from hotels when we came to work in West Virginia.Its about 40 minutes to WV, with a beautiful drive through the mountains. Its a beautiful home and everything was as described or better when we got there. We had 7 of us there and there was plenty of room for us all to have a little of our own space. The hot tub was a great feature.The weather was pretty cold while we were here , so after a hard days work it was nice to come back and get in the hot tub, relax, and keep warm while enjoying the outside. We would love to stay here again. Hopefully next time it will be in the summertime. Karen was right on top of things in getting back to us on our request to stay. I didnt give her much time since I only found the home 3 days before our departure. She pushed everything through and was great. Thanks Karen. Hope to get the chance to stay in your home again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to stay. The place is bigger than it looks, and very clean. My family and me enjoyed it very much,and if a country setting is what you want then you want this place. It will be the first place we look at when we go back to Deep Creek.

Name fits house, saw a momma bear and cub three nights

  • 5 of 5
House was great. Very clean.

Name fits house, saw a momma bear and cub three nights. That cute little bear cub could get in garbage can and throw trash out, even with turning can backwards in wooded container.

House was on dead end road, so it was very quiet and peaceful.

Close to Funland (better arcade), Smiley's (better rides) and the Wisp Ski Lift Roller Coaster.

a very relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was perfect for our a romantic retreat for my boyfriend and I. It is close to local restaurants and within walking distance from a grocery store, yet still feels very secluded (probably because of the calming creek and woods that surround it). The hot tub was wonderful, but our favorite part by far was the hot chocolate machine (it was very snowy while we were there). We also really enjoyed all of the games and puzzles this house had to offer. Those, along with the old-school VHS tapes that were a wonderful blast from the past kept us entertained for our snowed in week! We would definitely recommend this house for a getaway, it has everything you could want to kick back and relax!

Perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the weekend in "Life's a Bear" and loved it! It was exactly what we wanted! My fiance and I stayed here with another couple and it was a blast! It was wonderful to have the hot tub and so much space to spread out in the living areas. I was surprised how big the place was once we walked inside and it could easily fit a large group without being crammed! Also, it was great being so close to Wisp and the restaurants! Next time we come, we hope to stay for longer than a weekend. The time just flew by! We definitely will stay here again and recommend it to anyone whether you are a couple or a big family! We cant wait to go back!

Kathy D.-Great New Years Stay

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a very relaxing two days at "Life's a Bear". The house is much larger than it appeared in the pictures. Our rental was at the last minute, booked over Christmas and Karen the owner was very easy to work with. Our daughter and her friends enjoyed the hot tub, everything was ready to go for them. The fireplace lept the house very warm and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We had a great New Yrs. eve meal at the Santa Fe Grill and a tasy breakfast at Little Sandy's Diner. We hope to return agin in the coming year.
