About Jeanette Peel, Owner

As a child, I spent almost every summer in the mountains near Franklin NC. I always dreamed of going back one day to stay. Later in life many of my close friends and even some family members made the 'leap'. When an opportunity presented itself I decided to take that leap and purchase a vacation home in Franklin, which is central to all of the fun the Smokey Mountains have to offer. A dream come true. Yay! Retirement home in place! Then the economy fell and we decided to rent out our beautiful home in order to afford it. We were worried a bit, however it was for no reason as the people that have visited our home are good, hardworking and thoughtful people just as we are. Even a few celebrities have visited our cabin:):) For that we are grateful and blessed.

Why Jeanette Peel, Owner chose Franklin

Why this property? Well, this wonderful mountain top home became available and was truly more than we ever thought possible to obtain. Mountain top! New Timber Frame Construction! Million Dollar Home! All the best of construction! 47 mile view in the winter (documented) A Castle in The Sky!!! Creeks, Forest. Nature. Privacy yet not remote. Central to everything. No hustle bustle noise with the exception of the birds and wildlife. How good does it get? Things seem to work out for a reason. . . . 'if one door shuts, another better one will open.' We truly feel that this is what happened. We chose to believe that nothing happens by coincidence and that it was all predetermined long before we arrived here ....

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jeanette,



I am unable to access VRBO to accept my house commentary. I'll type it into the body of this email and, if you're willing, let you put it on your website for me.



Our 8 day stay at Bear Paw was everything we'd hoped for. The house is beautiful, the mountain view lovely. For nature lovers, it's a paradise, made even more special by a wonderful, big, new home in an unusually private location. We marveled daily at the numbers of birds which came to the feeders and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the elegant screened porch, watching them. The tiny, shy, flying squirrels which came every evening were a delight. Being up on top of this mountain made us feel as if we were in our very own royal domain and we loved every minute of our vacation there. We hope to go again.



I filled in the necessary info --- Monty and Lillie Montgomery, Cocoa Beach, Florida --- but the first effort was refused with an 'insufficient data' message. The second and third efforts were met with a message saying there was an error on the website and would I please report it --- or something similar to that, anyhow. Could you enter my commentary for me?



From Jeanette: Done! Thank you Lillie. Hope to see you again soon!!!!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home and setting! We've been going to the Franklin/Highlands area for over 30 years and I don't think we've ever stayed in a nicer home with such an incredible view. This is the kind of home where you can just sit for hours, read a good book and be mesmerized by the views. Great attention to details and every part of this home was first class.

WOW!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we turned onto Higdon Rd, we found that this is where our adventure begins. Greeted by the winding road that led us to the cabin, we were amazed at the beauty of the woods. When we reached the cabin, we were speechless at the striking view of the endless mountain scenery and the stretch of valley below. Truly you can say that this is “God’s Country”. Upon arrival we were greeted by the local hummingbird which appeared every day we were there. The home was welcoming and warm. It was more than what we had imagined. Truly a mountain home. We found the space comfortable as well as spacious. All the equipment we needed in the kitchen was there. We spent most of our evenings sitting outside on the deck watching the sunset past the mountain peaks. It was easy traveling to the local attractions and the locals were very friendly. We all enjoyed ourselves very much, difficult to leave but we will be back soon to “Bear Paw Mountain”.

My husband and I stayed a week at this beautiful cabin and absolutely loved it! We were looking for something secluded and peaceful. The view here is AMAZING! The cabin is absolutely beautiful...clean, cozy, and decorated with such detail. We enjoyed our stay...really hard to find words. We highly recommend Bear Paw! Best place we have stayed so far! We will be coming back! The town of Franklin is quaint and nice. We also enjoyed visiting the Highlands and some of the other surrounding towns. Great location! You will LOVE it here! We did! Thank you so much for opening your cabin for others to enjoy.

Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for offering us the opportunity to vacation at your beautiful mountain cabin. The week we spent there was amazing and breathtaking. We enjoyed the magnificent sunrises and sunsets from the screened room on the deck. Having a glass of Tennessee wine from the wineries in the Gatlinburg area in the evening, was a great way to finish off our days in Franklin and the surrounding area. Can't wait to return in the near future to continue the adventure.

Relaxing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week in this cabin, and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful and beautiful getaway. The view from the cabin is fantastic and there is plenty to do close by. We did quite a bit of hiking while there, and enjoyed the peaceful evenings watching the sunsets over the mountain tops, and enjoying the humming birds, squirrels, and other friendly critters.
