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

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!

  • 5 of 5
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.

AMAZING CABIN

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect setting for our group's retreat. We fell in love as soon as we walked through the front door. Plenty of room and we loved exploring the house and learning how it all came about. The decorating is beautiful and we really enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the evening enjoying the view. The living room was the perfect place to gather in the evening. The kitchen was just what we needed and was well stocked. Bedrooms were very comfortable. Just can't say enough about it. Hope to return.

WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS IN HIGHLANDS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this cabin for 11 nights and did not want to leave! We loved everything about the cabin. The "attached unit" is basically a bedroom that is part of the house. It doesn't have a closet, but it has an armoire and its own bathroom. My husband and I stayed in this room; it is very large. The house is very spacious, and even if you have enough people staying to fill all of the bedrooms, you never feel crowded in the common areas. Our favorite features include two masters on the main, the quick drive to town, the AMAZING view, the mostly flat neighborhood for great walks, and no steep inclines to worry about when the streets are icy. Most of all, we loved the character of the house. There is so much history there, and the furninshings are perfect. It is quite amazing.

ABE SHOULD HAVE STAYED HERE...

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful log home for our family to reunite for the holidays. With a roaring fire buring almost non-stop along with the aroma of holiday treats coming from the kitchen coupled with the laughter of our grandson as he explored the many rooms throughout the home, certainly made our visit one of the most memorable vacations we have ever had. The interior furnishings are so unique that it was visiting a log cabin museum. And, it is so close to downtown Highlands with a nearly level paved road for easy access to & from the restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend Bear Paw Cabin for familys of all ages. It's like stepping back in Abe's time but with all the modern day conveniences.
It's an experience that you will never forget, or regret........
