Why John Bickerstaff chose Topton
We had been vacationing in the Nantahala area for years and decided we wanted our own retreat for our family there.
What makes this Chalet unique
We don't think you will find more incredible and beautiful long-range mountain views anywhere in the area. Sitting in our rockers or soaking in our hot tub while taking in those views in the quiet and peaceful surroundings is simply a little taste of heaven.

stunning cabin in a beautiful place
The bear chalet is perfect for groups and families that want to experience the Nantahala gorge area. The cabins location was perfect. Close to everything but also very private. We all very much enjoyed our stay.
Hi Garet , So glad y’all enjoyed yourselves! Also nice to hear the chalet was in a good location for you all. Thank you for taking the time to write these kind words. Thank you again and welcome back in the future! John
The cabin was very clean, I liked everything about it, I loved driving down from the cabin and see the lake heading down the mountain.
Thank you Glenda so much for the 5 star review. We’re thrilled y’all enjoyed yourselves. Have a blessed night and please come again , John
Feels like a tree house
Bear Rock Chalet was a very clean, pretty property and very secluded. We enjoyed our family time together there. The pool table, hot tub and tree swing were nice extras for sure. It would have been nice for my parents if there was a chair in their loft room upstairs as there was no seating anywhere other than the bed and toilet. Make sure to plan ahead for all food, vehicle gasoline, etc. as everything is a good distance away. Low profile vehicles need to be cautious as the sides of the road have eroded a bit in areas making the center higher. Everything in the cabin was in excellent condition. The owner seemed extremely nice and prompt in answering questions. Overall, I highly recommend the property.
Overall great stay! Would recommend
Great place, great location, rent a jeep
Thank you Robert ! Glad y’all had a nice time and that the wedding went well! Please come again and have a blessed day ! John
Great place to stay
We had plenty of room for my husband, I, and five college students. All the kids had their own bed. The downstairs game room and the hot tub was a big hit for them. It was convenient to all activities at NOC and the lake was beautiful.
Hi Kala , So glad y’all enjoyed yourselves ! We just got back Saturday for 5 nights, and as always already miss it :) The that is one of the most beautiful lakes I’ve ever seen! Thank you for writing a review and the kind words ! Please come again ! John
Peaceful stay in a beautiful area
The cabin was very clean and well provisioned. The hot tub was great after a long day! There was a wonderful view from the deck, the living room, and the master bedroom. A comfortable place to relax. There is easy access to Nantahala lake just a short drive away as well as the restaurant at the marina. The cabin is up a pretty steep gravel drive, nothing unusual for the mountains though, but be mentally prepared if you're a flat lander! My family also enjoyed the rope swing. Easy access to great hiking trails and whitewater rafting on the Nantahala.
Thank you so much Jay and thrilled ya'll had a nice vacation! Yes the hot tub is nice after a long day:) It is appreciated that you took the time to write a nice review! Please come again and God bless you all! John
While our chalet is secluded and rural, we are less than 30 minutes from the town of Andrews that offers shopping, a quaint downtown area, a grocery store, Walgreens, restaurants, etc.
