Murphy House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Our executive-style mountain home features four bedrooms, with queen beds, and three bathrooms, each with double vanities and tub/shower combinations. The lake and mountain range views from the master bedroom and both decks are truly unbelievable, some of the best that Bear Paw offers.

The main floor level has solid oak hardwood floors, and soaring tongue and groove pine ceilings. This level features an open great room, a dining room, a stacked rock gas fireplace, a 32 inch LCD flat panel television with surround sound, a VCR/DVD combo, a fully-equipped kitchen with solid surface countertops and sink, raised panel oak kitchen cabinets, two bedrooms, and a full bath. This floor leads to two decks, one covered with a 6 foot cedar swing and one open. The view of the lake and mountains from both of these decks is fantastic!!

The upper level has a master suite with solid oak hardwood floors, a television, a DVD player and a separate sitting area that overlooks the great room below and the fantastic view of the lake and mountains through the wall of windows. This master bedroom also has a full bath.

The lower level has a bedroom, a living room with a television, a DVD player, a full bathroom, a full-size washer and dryer, and a deck, with a 5 foot swing. It offers views of the lake and mountains.

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 / Andrews Area

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at your home in the mountains. We found your home to be as beautiful as the view. Thank you for allowing us to use your home and thank you for checking with us to be sure everything was satisfactory on our arrival. We had an awesome time at your home and the surrounding area. Helen Ga. was awesome being German it was especially nice to see such an awesome replica of an authenic Alpine Village. Even though we were a few weeks early for the fall colors everything else was great and we were not disappointed. Thank you again and we will probably be calling you again for more time there. We will certainly recommend your place to the doctors and nurses we work with.

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this fabulous location for 5 or 6 years. Cheryl and Carlos always keep the cabin in tip top shape. The furniture is so comfortable and inviting. The home is very clean and equipped with all of the necessities. I am always amazed at the useful utensils and cookware that is stored in the the kitchen. We enjoy the breath-taking views of the mountains and lake. The home is great for everyone to gather together, yet there is plenty of space for alone time. The downstairs family room and ping pong table are great for teenagers. It is so nice to have the laundry room and detergent available. Cheryl and Carlos are the ultimate vacation home owners!

Another Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th stay in this home. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves again. The house is always clean upon arrival. The kitchen is well stocked with essential kitchenware. The kids always enjoy the ping pong table and the community swimming pool. The view of the mountains and lake are always breathtaking from inside the house as well as, from either of the two porches. Thanks again for making our vacation spot so pleasurable!

wonderful home Gem with a view

  • 5 of 5

Thank u for allowing us to share your home. We had a family reunion and it was wonderful part of our family rented another home in bear paw but chose to always come to our house because the views were so beautiful. We could be on deck, enjoying the BBQ and kids and adults in basement playing ping pong. We could not have been happier with our choice plenty of room for all and easy to go to Ocoee in TN whitewater rafting to Helen Ga for Alpine village Bryson for Nantahala river and train plus a hike on Indian standing Mt. Easy access to all I highly recommend this house to anyone visiting the area you will not be disappointed

Breathtaking view and lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed in your home and I can't thank you enough for sharing such a lovely home and surroundings with us. You were so gracious in allowing me to change from the Spring to the Fall due to medical circumstances. I didn't think it could have been any better than my previous stay in the Spring, but I was wrong. Brought my parents, sister, and daughter and they loved it as much as I did. Your home is so lovely and inviting and had everything you might need. The beds were so comfortable! We made several day trips to Cherokee, Franklin and Murphy. The leaves had just starting changing as we left...beautiful. Thank you again! Can't wait to come back again.

Peaceful setting with great view!

  • 5 of 5

Your home was very clean and the bed was comfy. We enjoyed the private setting and the gorgeous view as well as the ping pong table. We also enjoyed the pool and the birds and the squirrels were great entertainment. The booking process was easy and you responded to our inquiry quickly. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home in Bear Paw. Each time we entered the home, we were just blown away by the view. This was a long awaited family vacation for us. The children especially enjoyed the huge pool and the play ground. We used the covered picnic area for a BBQ/pool party one evening. Some of the family paddled canoes and kayaks and we all puttered around the lake on a rented pontoon boat. Folks at Mountain View Marina were wonderful. So enjoyed searching out waterfalls! The house met all out needs. I would recommend it to anyone!
