Bearpaw was the completion of my life long dream to build a rustic mountain home from reclaimed log cabins. It was a year long labor of love involving many talented local craftsmen and a crew from Kentucky who are experts in the restoration art of working with pioneer materials and bringing them into the 21st century with modern conveniences. I had great joy in the construction and design and floor plan of the 4 cabins built to create one home filled with old and new treasures collected over a life time and put into this home for the enjoyment of all who visit and stay there. My dog and I love the walks along Shortoff Road and surrounding area. We are delighted to share our treasure with you.

Joanne purchased this house in 2003

Our group of 11 high school friends stayed at Bear Paw for a week. We take a trip every spring or summer and have been to many different places. I think we would all agree that Bear Paw offered everything we wanted or needed. It is beautiful, comfortable, large enough for us to be together and also have quiet time. The 4 1/2 baths, several with separate tubs and showers and the extremely well equipped kitchen made it very easy for us to get dressed and out for adventure and relax and cook evening meals. Detailed instructions for operating tv and sound system were greatly appreciated. Lighting and many electrical outlets were also appreciated. There is abundant parking. Everything is well thought out.
Thank you for allowing us to stay at Bear Paw.

Charming retreat near lovely scenery and lots to do which accommodates a large group

  • 5 of 5
This property definitely deserves the five stars which my group gives Bear Paw Cabin. Ten high school girlfriends who meet yearly for our version of The Big Chill found this cabin to be perfect for us in the beautiful Highlands area. The cabin is just as described in the listing and is tastefully appointed with all the amenities 10 women want! We take turns cooking dinner and found all we needed to do so in the kitchen. After dinner we could gather on the large deck and watch the sunset over the mountain. There is plenty of seating on the porch and in the living room and adequate parking for several cars. As native Kentuckians, we were all intrigued by the construction of the house from three log cabins (updated for modern living), two of which came from KY. The interior decoration is just right-not overdone. The presence of a washer and dryer was handy during a week's stay. The location of the cabin is away from the hustle and bustle of the towns of Highlands and Cashiers but close enough for an outing for shopping and nice lunches at the many great restaurants. It is also near wonderful hiking trails and lakes. The owner Joanne was extremely accommodating. Our group would return to Bear Paw Cabin and give it our highest recommendation!

The most enchanting place in the Highlands

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough positive things about this lovely home. It was beautiful, well appointed, cozy, and felt like home. A bedroom for every group: the girls, the boys, and the adults. Beautiful bathrooms; nice fluffy towels. For 7 years, two families have been meeting for the 4th of July weekend, and this was, by far, the best place we have ever stayed. The adults loved it; the kids loved it. The outside of the home has a wonderful yard on all sides and the children played outside for hours, exploring the hills and hiding spots. The kids actually voluntarily pulled themselves away from electronic devices and went out and played for hours. I found the history of the house intriguing as I am from Kentucky and two of the log cabins making up Bear Paw came from different sites in my home state. Joanne was a delight to work with; very accommodating and worked with our schedule and needs. It was a lovely vacation.

We have stayed at many rentals over the past several years but this one will definitely be a repeat. It is well appointed, the owner very good to work with, house & grounds kept immaculate but most of all the ambiance of this charming cabin is worthy of a magazine spread. Furnished with beautiful antiques, amazing FP & view yet so close to town.

New Years at Bear Paw

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented Bear Paw in order to bring in the New Year together with our family. It was my husband, myself and our two boys (8 and 6) along with my Sister-In-Law, Mother-In-Law and Niece and our dog Fish. This home is set-up beautifully in order to accommodate many "room-mates." All of us slept perfectly and it really seemed like we all had our own space. The kitchen is fully stocked along with each bedroom/bathroom and the laundry room. We loved the view from the living room and sunroom. It was so wonderful drinking coffee in the morning looking out those windows! And, the fireplace....stunning. We kept it burning the entire time we were there, it was so welcoming. Getting to and from the Main Street of Highlands was easy, it was about a 10 minute drive. The shops and restaurants are quaint. The cabin was in close proximity to hiking, snow tubing, and exploring. We had a truly delightful time and plan to be back. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was spectacular. The photos listed on VRBO are exactly as the home appears-except the pictures do not do it enough justice. Joanne had everything labeled for ease and written instructions on each of the more technical parts (remote controls, surround sound, etc.). We truly didn't have any questions, as she made sure to have everything answered before we asked. We recommend this property!

Better than advertised!

The owner did a spectacular job in renovating a home from the 1800's. Somehow she managed to keep the feel of home built in the 1800's, yet added modern amenities so you don't feel like you are roughing it. I highly recommend this home for a family getaway, retreat with friends, or a couple's retreat.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay in a home made from 4 log cabins from the 1800s but with all the modern conveniences. I had a great time building my cabin and resourcing reclaimed flooring and old beams and some wonderful furnishings and art to make it feel like all belonged including the modern conveniences. Loved that you had a good stay and hope you will come again.
