Our Cabin is nestled away in the famous Bear Paw community just outside Murphy, NC with 24 hour security.. Enjoy your morning coffee or read a book on your very own private deck while you enjoy the beautiful views and listen to the sounds of nature. The 4th of July, Labor Day, and Memorial Day weekends are very popular at the Bear paw Community. Renters have enjoyed watching fireworks over the lake in a peaceful serene environment. It is sure to be a sight you will never forget. In the mood for exercise? Enjoy swimming at the private community olympic-size pool or you can play tennis while the kids enjoy themselves on the playground, basketball court or fishing pond. Our private marina is available to all renters. Rent a boat for a day and have lunch while cruising around the serene lake. Outside the Bearpaw Community, a ten minute walk will take you to the historical Hiwassee Dam. Picnic tables are available atop the hill where you can enjoy a private lunch overlooking the river.
Tired of being stuck in traffic? Tired of phones ringing of the hook? This is your chance to get away from it all!! Our quiet home tucked away in the smokey Mountains of Bear Paw is sure to get your mind off things and help you enjoy the beauty of nature while still providing the amenities that you are used to at home. It offers that perfect place for a romantic get-a-way or just a weekend escape to get away from it all.
We were looking for a "rustic" mountain get-away to go to with our 10 and 11 year old girls.
The first thing we LOVED was "no cell service". We could REALLY unplug! Verizon does work a bit. At and T does not.
Bear Paw community is beautiful! The views are stunning. The people are REALLY nice! Very safe place to be yet it feels like you are really away from it all!
The lake is SO clear and refreshing. We drove to the dam every day and the girls swam and played. They LOVED to play in the clay at the shore and gather beautiful rocks which were everywhere! So, if you like rocks, plan to be in heaven!. They also picked fresh wild blackberries. They did NOT want to leave. We grilled out there as well. My pictures are absolutely beautiful!
We also rented a boat/tube for the day at the marina. That is a MUST! It is hard to pick out a "favorite day" but that is up there! The people at the marina are SO nice! It was worth every penny!
We didn't have to drive anywhere to experience nature and beauty, except for the 1 mile drive to the dam. We picked Bear Paw because of the lake, pool and park etc.. BUT with all of nature, our kids had NO desire to go to the pool or park etc... JUST PURE PLAY TIME!
Cary's cabin is "rustic". So, if you are looking for a fancy cabin, this is not your spot. Personally, we LOVED it. We loved how warm and cozy the cabin felt. It was exactly what we were looking for. At night the girls would play outside catching lightening bugs and feeding squirrels peanuts. :) We sat on the screen porch a LOT! It was SO peaceful! I wish I had the words to describe.
Cary suggested we bring toilet paper so we did. No big deal. Everything else was there.
We also recommend bug spray. Mosquitoes and horse flies were quite active--but that is to be expected this time of year.
We HIGHLY recommend this cabin!! We wish we could have stayed longer but we moved on to explore Brevard N.C., which is pretty BUT honestly, this was BETTER!
Thank you Cary! You were GREAT to work with! Thanks for sharing your space with us! We are all grateful for our experience!
