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.
