Our family stayed at Bear Paw recently to celebrate my son's wedding. It is an unforgettable property! We probably spent more time on the deck than anywhere else. Seeing the sunrise over the ridge each morning while having a cup of coffee was my favorite. Each room is beautifully decorated, the beds are so comfortable, and every necessity is provided. Thanks to Ben, especially, for all your help before, during, and after the wedding. I know it's a comfort to the owners to have a manager who cares for the property so well, and wants to be so helpful to the guests. Also, thanks to Lisa for helping my son and daughter-in-law long distance.
Bear Paw was an amazing experience! The serenity is unimaginable. Beautiful views, awesome winding trails and outdoor activities made this a vacation to remember. We were blown away. For anyone who loves the mountain views and wish to take a time out from their hectic schedule, Bear Paw is a wonderful place. We highly Recommend Bear Paw and look forward to returning for another getaway.
My daughter was married here this past weekend and I have to say she could not have chosen a more beautiful location. The home itself is amazing and decorated so beautifully. The grounds and views are stunning. There are nature trails to hike that were perfect and had hidden little beauties of nature everywhere. There are many little hidden streams nestled in the woods. I could not say enough about Bear Paw to give it justice. Everyone should stay here. I want to go back with our family soon so they we can just relax and enjoy the place even more. It is definitely the Crown Jewel of North Georgia or anywhere in Georgia as far as I am concerned. Love it!
Once in a lifetime, everyone should have a chance to stay at a place like this. It's a perfect piece of property in many ways. The setting, the architecture, the furnishings all add up to an amazing total. Forget postcard material, this place should be in a copy of Architectural Digest or a movie location. The management staff was very helpful and available in making us feel at home and answering any questions that we had. Even though it's location was remote, the town was close enough to get to for the few things we needed and there were lots of things in the nearby area to do like white water rafting, horse back riding and zip lines. If you're looking to get away from it all and feel like royalty at the same time, you won't be disappointed.
As an international traveler with over a million air miles, I have stayed in my fair share of world-class resorts, boutique hotels, rustic lodges and high-end homes. Bear Paw can stand toe-to-toe with any place I've had the pleasure to stay. Period.
The location (just over an hour from Atlanta) is incredible convenient. A wide variety of shopping for necessities is 15 minutes away, but once you're here, you won't want to leave.
There are three master suites, separated nicely for privacy with enough space for sleeping options for young kids in two of them. The kitchen has every conceivable feature and is a cook's dream. I had two dinners catered in during my stay that were fantastic. The owners (who are extremely helpful) can set you up with the appropriate contacts.
The guest house can easily sleep 4 teenagers in bunk beds (checkout the vintage pinball machine) in the lower level. The upper level queen suite has a kitchen, breakfast seating and other informal club chair seating options as well. The deck on the guest house directly overlooks (20 feet away) one of the mountain streams running through the property.
It's hard to imagine a more peaceful spot with every detail thought of. Honestly, I hate to tell anyone how great this place is for fear my "hidden Georgia gem" will get discovered. Go. Enjoy. You'll be much better for it.
I stayed at Bear Paw for three days while on business. I was amazed at how wonderful not only the home was but the entire property. It was visually stunning, the location is to die for georgous!
I came in from Atlanta and was pleased the drive was straight forward and painless.
From the moment I started up the driveway up to the house, I was blown away. The house is impressive from the moment you see it and it only gets better as you enter the home. The home has huge and I mean HUGE windows that basically span the entire length of the house. You are surrounded by mountain views! There is not a another property in sight. I felt truly alone in my own private wilderness paradise. The details in the house are amazing. I loved the Indian andirons in the outside fireplace, the custom paintings throughout the house. There are even special rocks built in the foundation in the shape of hearts and states. There are so many interesting details to discover in this home and throughout the grounds. That according to the care taker, Leon, I dont think I saw them all!
The owners have really thought of everything. There was firewood ready to go in the wood fireplace in the living room as well as in the outside stone fireplace. The fridge was stocked with some items that I requested; they even places some fresh flowers for my arrival (Thank you!).
Because I was in the area on business I spent a great deal of time in the fireside kitchen area with my laptop. Which is a very comfy and cozy area of the house. I did cook one night and the stove was a gourmet lovers dream. in fact the entire kitchen is!
Leon, the care taker and Tracy, the manager were fantastic in helping me arrange my trip. Leon even came over to show me how to operate the gas fire place. I am not used to gas and was a little hesitant to use it and Leon came over to show me how to operate it. As grand as the home is it is still remarkably warm and inviting. I was very comfortable here.
I definitely will come back with the family and take a much needed week vacation.
Wonderful experience!!! Thank you.
