Lovely setting, 100% serene. Marc was extremely welcoming and communicative. He provided all we needed for boating. The roomy outdoor area and deck were much appreciated. We enjoyed our Baby Bear visit very much.

Marc was awesome. I will be going back again. I've told family and friends, great place to stay.
Peaceful and beautiful property
We really enjoyed our time at Baby Bear. It has absolutely everything you need! It is a gorgeous and peaceful property and the lake is lovely. It was the perfect weekend getaway.
Great outdoor getaway for me and my pup
With the lake on one side and forest on the other, this little cottage was a great outdoor getaway. Semi-private with enough room to feel like you're away from it all, but with houses and the host nearby so you don't feel like you're totally all on your own out there. Host checked in regularly, and helped us prepare for a storm that luckily ended up bypassing us. My pup loved running around the grounds exploring off leash, which is a rare freedom for this city dog. The wifi was good enough to keep me in the loop for a working getaway, but okay-ish enough to remind me to put the devices away and get back outdoors. I liked hanging out on the shaky old dock with a book. Took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen to cook most of my meals so I wouldn't have to venture out much.

About Marc Edwards
Baby Bear was the 2nd of the 4 houses purchased in the Atlanta area. The 3 Bears are all next to one another and this one is in between Mama and Papa Bear. Goldilocks is on sandy Clear Lake 10 minutes north of the Bears. While the smallest of the 4 homes, it has the most charm.
Marc Edwards purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Marc Edwards chose Atlanta
This house is often rented in conjuction with Mama or Papa Bear given it's location in the middle. This is great for family reunions or larger groups of friends and is discounted by 33% when rented as a group.
What makes this Cottage unique
This Permalog home is very energy efficent - warm in the in the winter and cool in the summer with one small A/C unit. The new green metal roof with skylights add charm and really light up the living room. The new bathroom has a jet tub and was completely redone in 2012. The kitchen is fully stocked and the 42' Plasma HDTV has most all of the Direct TV channels.
