I have gotten a lot of emails and telephone calls wanting more details on the cabin arrangements at Bear Den. Having never been there myself, it has been a bit tricky to describe them in complete detail, but after calling & talking to folks at the campground one more time, I've a bit more info to share with those of you who still aren't sure where you want to stay.
First of all, if you want to stay in any of the cabins, you need to act quickly. The Creekside Cabin that sleeps 4 is full. One of the Creekside Family Cabins (which sleep 6) has 4 spaces reserved. The other is still fully available. The Creekside cabin that will sleep 10 already has 3 spaces reserved. One of the campin' cabins that sleeps 4 has 2 spaces filled. And we've got a popup space reserved on a campsite near the Trading Post. So you can see that these spots will go very quickly.
To give you a better idea of the actual cabin layout, there IS a bit of privacy available, even though we are using them as bunkhouses. For instance, in the sleeps 6 cabins, the layout is as follows: There is a full-sized sleeper sofa in the living room that sleeps 2; there is a bedroom, with DOOR, that has a full-sized bed that sleeps 2; there is an open loft with a full-sized bed that sleeps 2. You can see that this arrangement will afford at least some privacy to each 2-person sleeping area.
All of the details are not in on the new sleeps-10 Creekside cabin that is being built, but I know there will be at least two bedrooms with doors.
I hope this will help some of you make your decisions. Just remember that even if you share a bed with a friend, you are getting a very nice accommodation for between $15 & $25 per night. Where else are you gonna find a rustic cabin with a jacuzzi, a fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, front & back porches, a beautiful mountain setting, and a group of fellow Mohicanites at a price like that? How can you beat it!!
And as an additional bit of info on the Campin' Cabins, though they are described as "wooden tents," they do have the added benefit of lights inside, one outlet inside for a fan, etc, and another electrical outlet outside, plus a water faucet outside. Also, I was misled about the wooden bunks...they DO have mattresses, just no bedding beyond that. So a sleeping bag on top of the mattress would probably be very comfy. And the bathhouse/bathrooms are right across the way. Very nice for campers.
Again, don't wait to book your spot in any of the cabins, as they will be gone very quickly, I'm sartain sure.
This Gathering is going to be the very best yet!
