Take a step back in time and enjoy a getaway in an authentic rustic hand hewn log cabin. Bear Creek Log Cabins are reconstructed from the original 1800's American Pioneer log cabins and restored on 201 acres of secluded farmland on beautiful Lookout Mountain in North Alabama. The property has beautiful mountain views and adjoins Little River Canyon National Preserve. Guests can hike down into Bear Creek, fish in a three acre pond, rock climb, enjoy an outside campfire, and pet the farm animals all on the property.

Located near the quaint town of Mentone, Desoto State Park and Little River Canyon, Bear Creek Log Cabins are ideal for a romantic getaway for two or for family vacation destination.
