Our family of four came to the Bear Paw cabin for Thanksgiving weekend. I have to say it was one of the best thanksgivings ever! I am so glad we booked the cabin. We had 2 adults and 2 kids (9 & 11) and it was so much bigger than we expected. The top two floors were the perfect amount of space, but there is a huge basement with very nicely appointed rooms that we didn't even use.

It is one of the cleanest and well-stocked places we have ever stayed... The owner, Cathy is very very kind and considerate. I really think she cares and has given such attention to detail.

We were very happy with the expanded cable channels, well-stocked kitchen/baths, easy directions and very good communicaton. I cannot say enough. Lovely people.

One tip: If you arrive at night be careful to check your mileage according to the directions. It is very dark and no cell coverage. We reset our speedometer at each turn, followed Cathys directions to the letter and arrived in the dark without any trouble.

Beautiful home! So spacious and well appointed. The view during the Fall was gorgeous! Every detail in making our vacation so special was addressed!

Day trips through the maintains were easily accessible. The marina in Bear Paw is super nice! The new casino is only a short drive away.

Not enough stars to fairly recognize how beautiful this home is.

I have stayed at many cabins in this area,and this one tops the list for cleanliness,and being well stocked. It was like being in a 5 star hotel. There were 7 of us including a three year old. We asked the three year old how he liked it and he said it was"awesome"... We all felt the same way as well. Its in a general location that you can go anywhere on a day trip. We went to Cherokee, and Bryson City. We plan on coming back to Zip Line and to go rafting. We just didn't have time to do it all. Cathy and her sister are real gems and you could ask for no better for anything that you need.

Beautiful Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonder week at Hiwassee Hideaway. This cabin was perfect for my family of 6. The location was great. Beautiful view from cabin inside and out. Very comfortable and inviting cabin that was equipped with every we could possibly need and then some. True feeling of home away from home. Both Mrs. Kathy and Ms. Dorothy were a pleasure to deal with. We loved everything and plan to come back.

Owner's Response: Sylvia and Mitchel, Thank you for the kind words about our cabin. My sister Dorothy said your children had a ball and they thoroughly enjoyed their time on the lake. I am glad you were able to have a great family vacation at Hiwassee Hideaway and I look forward to your next stay with us. Cathy

I have been renting vacation cabins, homes, and condos for over 15 years, from SC to Montana, and this is absolutely the best experience of them all! Cathy is super organized and extremely accommodating. She had all of the information to me days before our arrival; even directions for the remotes and the fireplace! How to operate the TVs and fireplace are small things that can quickly become frustrating! Her kitchen is so well-stocked that you don't have to bring anything! Her sister, Margey, is amazing as well. She lives close by the rental and is available at any hour if needed while also respecting your privacy. We unfortunately had to leave for a day to travel 8 hrs rt for a funeral. On our way out we discovered our car battery was dead and the way we had parked did not allow for anyone to be able to give us a jump. We called Margey and within minutes she was there with a portable battery charger. She told us to keep it with us in case we had trouble traveling. This rental is beautifully designed and decorated with many special personal touches. It is the most affordable we have ever rented as well! I am completely in love with this rental and very fond of Cathy and Margey as well! You can't help but feel like family and like they sincerely want you to experience the best vacation possible!

Great spring break vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends stayed in this cabin for a week during spring break. We were very pleased with the cabin and Cathy was so nice to deal with. The Penner ladies were very nice and helpful. I was very impressed with how the cabin had everything we needed and we all loved the huge hot tub. This cabin is amazing! The picture don't do it justice. It really is beautiful and big. There was plenty of room for everyone.
