House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
We are Ken and Liz Kushner from Tallahassee, Florida. Ken is a math teacher at Lincoln High School and Liz is a registered nurse at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. We have a grown son, Jordan. Retirement is right around the corner for us, and we look forward to having lots of free time to enjoy traveling, hiking, playing tennis, woodworking, golfing, hunting, antiquing, reading, and fishing.
Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Murphy
We enjoy the serenity that the mountains have to offer. Bear Paw, while maintaining its rustic charm, has amenities that we enjoy including the pool, marina, and tennis courts. We also appreciate the fact that it is a gated community and that the national forest surrounds us. There is no thru traffic, which makes it a very peaceful place.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy being able to go boating and fishing at the marina, which is inside Bear Paw. The tennis courts are convenient so that we can enjoy a game of tennis without having to travel to courts. The Olympic-size swimming pool is a nice place to meet people who live in Bear Paw or are vacationing from other areas. There is also a playground for children adjacent to the swimming pool and a covered pavilion which is nice for family reunions. The roads in Bear Paw are well-maintained, so taking long walks is easy.

Wish we could have stayed longer. Very relaxing
Had a great time staying and fishing on lake Hiwassee. Was a beautiful well taken care of home
You are welcome back anytime.
Very nice, clean and organized house. Good location and enjoyable for kids and adults.
We would like to use more than 5 stars for Kushner's house. It is an amazing house and we really enjoyed our days.
The house is very comfortable and spacious. It was very clean and organized. Inside the house you can find tags with instructions and recommendations, those were very helpful.
You can find all that you need for your days: kitchen supplies, bathrooms supplies, board games, DVD, books. You never get bored inside the house.
Outside is wonderful, too. You can do hiking around the Paw Bear, walk close to the lake or sitting on the deck. If you are lucky you can see deers and a beautiful fox that walks around the house.
Murphy is a nice town, it is about 40 min from the house, there are a lot of restaurants and nice places.
We drove to Cataloochee Ski Resort (2 hours to North) and we could enjoy the snow.
We recommend the house!!! Thank you Mr Kushner.
***It will be a good idea arrive to the house before the darkness. The path is a little tricky when you get to Sunrise Lane. The Signal is very dark and you cannot see it during the night. (maybe is better if the letters could be white)
We are so glad you enjoyed our house and Bear Paw. It is a special place. You are so welcome to come back again.
4 Days at Bear Paw
We found it to be clean and spacious. The gas fireplace was a plus as being from south Florida, we were not use to the nighttime temperatures. The trees have grown to obstruct the view of Lake and mountains. Nice area to explore
My Mom and I spent a few days visiting Murphy and the surrounding areas. The house is beautiful and had everything we expected. Fireplace was a nice extra as the temp dropped into the 30’s. Loved watching the birds and squirrels from the deck and open views from the house. Thanks for a great vacation home.
Delinda, glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. You are welcome back any time.
Spent a week here and really enjoyed our stay at this property in Bear Paw. Community is very nice, Property is very nice, really loved the seclusion. Would have given it 5 starts except the picture that shows the view must be a little old because the trees have grown to cover the view pretty much and I pick my stays by the view and the WiFi was very sporadic otherwise an excellent place to stay.
PS: I hope your family fared well in Hurricane Michael.
