Carlos Gaskin purchased this house in 2000
Why Carlos Gaskin chose Murphy
We had vacationed in Bear Paw several times and enjoyed the area a great deal. It is in a gated community near Murphy, and has beautiful views. We liked the fact that there is an olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis court and basketball courts to provide entertainment. Our children, who are grown now but were young at the time we built our first house in Bear Paw, absolutely loved to go there. Since the area has rentals and permanent homes, we did not feel like we were tourists; we felt at home.
What makes this house unique
We like swimming and fishing on the lake as well as boating. The swimming pool and playground are nice for the little ones. It is such a peaceful place. If you want activities, there are plenty around, but if you want peace and quiet, Bear Paw is hard to beat.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at your home in the mountains. We found your home to be as beautiful as the view. Thank you for allowing us to use your home and thank you for checking with us to be sure everything was satisfactory on our arrival. We had an awesome time at your home and the surrounding area. Helen Ga. was awesome being German it was especially nice to see such an awesome replica of an authenic Alpine Village. Even though we were a few weeks early for the fall colors everything else was great and we were not disappointed. Thank you again and we will probably be calling you again for more time there. We will certainly recommend your place to the doctors and nurses we work with.
