About Carlos Gaskin
We are residents of Tallahassee, Florida, and are retired high-school teachers. 2016 marks our 47th wedding anniversary! We have two children who also live in Tallahassee and four grandchildren, two of whom live close to us. We enjoy visiting our rentals in Boston, MA , Nashville, TN, and in Bear Paw near Murphy, NC, but we also enjoy sharing the fun with you. We have many repeat renters who have become friends to us. We keep our rentals clean, well-furnished and updated for your enjoyment.
Carlos Gaskin purchased this House in 2000
Why Carlos Gaskin chose Murphy
We had vacationed in Bear Paw several times and enjoyed the area a great deal. It is in a gated community near Murphy, and has beautiful views. We liked the fact that there is an olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis court and basketball courts to provide entertainment. Our children, who are grown now but were young at the time we built our first house in Bear Paw, absolutely loved to go there. Since the area has rentals and permanent homes, we did not feel like we were tourists; we felt at home.
What makes this House unique
We like swimming and fishing on the lake as well as boating. The swimming pool and playground are nice for the little ones. It is such a peaceful place. If you want activities, there are plenty around, but if you want peace and quiet, Bear Paw is hard to beat.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Love the views
We had million dollar views of the mountains and lake!
So glad you saw the beauty that is Bear Paw. All four seasons have their own kind of beauty there. Hope you can return soon!
Peaceful and Relaxinb
This was probably my favorite family vacation spot. Very remote (no cell reception away from the house and a half hour to closest store) and super relaxing. While it’s a neighborhood, and there are other houses on the cup de sac, once you’re in the house or on the decks, you’d swear you were all alone in the woods. The view is beautiful. We loved watching the birds at the feeders. The house was large and comfortable with WiFi and satellite tv. I can’t recommend enough and hope to come back next year.
Thank you so much, Apryle! We are so glad you enjoyed the mountain house. Also glad you used the internet calling on your phone. When we do that, we have no problem with calls at the house. Hope you return soon. We are all prepared for some cookie baking😁�.
Crazy beautiful view
The owners were great to work with. The house was fantastic/ the view was stunning!
Thank you so much, Deb. We are glad you enjoyed the house. The view from that swing is so amazing. My cup of coffee, a good book, the view and the birds....Heaven on Earth. Hope you can return soon. Thanks for choosing our place!
Great week at Bear Paw
Great week with family, very nice property with a killer view of Hiwassee Lake. Property was clean and extremely comfortable.
Thank you for the kind review, Doug. We are happy that you and your family had a good vacation. We, too, are amazed at that beautiful view. Hurry back!
The owners were so helpful and communicative. We ended up having to leave early due to a broken ankle and the owners were so gracious and helpful. This is a great place to visit and get away from it all and relax in a beautiful environment.
Thank you, Carrie! Thanks for coming back to the mountains.So sorry you hurt your ankle. Hope you return soon!
Wonderful stay in Bear Paw as always!
This is our fourth year staying in the Gaskin home in Bear Paw and I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience not only this year, but the past few years. The owners really take pride on the beautiful house and are so attentive to any needs or questions we have during our stay. We have already reserved our stay for next year and cannot wait!
We are so happy to know that you and yours had a good time in Bear Paw! So glad you get to enjoy it the way we do!
