What a Wonderful Place!
What a Wonderful Place!
This home is a bright, beautiful and well-appointed 3-level house with all of the amenities you could ask for. It is well kept and in a scenic location. The owners were friendly, very accommodating and helpful. The pictures on VRBO are accurate, but can't possibly capture the inviting ambiance of a quiet retreat. Just be sure to shop before going up to the mountain--it's quite a distance from town, but absolutely worth it once you arrive. Since cell service is spotty, I used Skype phone service on the WIFI network, and that kept me in touch with the world (only when I wanted to be!) It was a nice, relaxing long weekend! It will be a great retirement retreat for them, but a loss to the rental market. Enjoyed my stay both at the house and among the beautiful colors of the fall leaves.

Great Week in the mountains!
Great Week in the mountains!
Loved the house! Well stocked, very very clean, very private and we had a blast picking blackberries which were growing like crazy all around the property! Lots of movies to watch which is very much appreciated- thank you! Little tricky finding the house the first time so take your time as it's really easy to miss the sign. Thanks again, we hope to stay there next summer ! Laura, Greg and families

Lovely home and quiet, quiet, quiet. Had the opportunity to stay for several days and enjoy Bear Paw. A change for me , living on the ocean. The house was comfortable, especially because I love home cooked meals as opposed to dining out. Great kitchen and watching TV on a huge flat screen with leather easy chair was a unexpected treat here in the mountains. Thanks for the memories.

About the owner: 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.
Why the 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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
