Murphy house description

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.

Our home is located in Bear Paw, which is the only development on gorgeous Lake Hiwassee in the mountains of southwestern North Carolina. Lake Hiwassee is only five to ten minutes walking distance from our home. Lake Hiwassee is an 18-mile long mountain lake that offers casual fishing, boating, and swimming. There is also a shared swimming pool (open from Memorial Day through Labor Day, a marina that rents boats, a tennis court, a basketball court, a child's playground, and a child's fishing pond. A secured entrance gate adds to the feeling of peace and serenity pervading Bear Paw.

                                My family and I stayed in this wonderful cabin over our spring break and had the best time. The home is beautiful and very cozy. The view of the lake and the mountains from the huge windows and the wonderful deck is AMAZING! The owners have stocked the cabin with virtually everything you could ever possibly need! Every single time we needed something, there it was. It is obvious that the owners have put a lot of time, thought, and love into this cabin. This makes for a very comfortable and inviting stay. The home is nice, large, and comfortable. The deck and porch swing are events unto themselves. We also enjoyed playing ping pong in the basement, playing the board games provided to us, and cozying up by the fireplace. The provided grill made for great family meals that we enjoyed out on the deck to soak in that great view. The home is filled with great reading material, and seems like an ideal place to curl up with a good book and relax. The basement is like a little apartment, and would be ideal for a couple or a person who wanted a little privacy from the group. We loved our time at the cabin and will definitely rent it again the next time we are over in the Murphy area. I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants a great, homey place to stay and a stunning view.

                                My family enjoyed your home a lot. The scenery from the balcony is absolutely breathtaking. We loved the roominess of the cabin. It fit all 7 of us comfortably. The pictures of the home are beautiful, but you have to be inside the home to see the real beauty of it. We enjoyed it all from the birds on the birdfeeders to the squirrels stealing the birdseed to the view of the mountains. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will return to this area in the future. We would love to rent the cabin again. We hated to leave.

                                This is an awesome place. Directions were easy to follow.When we walked into the front door the view was breathtaking. The home was beautiful and everything you could need was there. It was very, very clean. The photos are just as you see them. We enjoyed just sitting and looking at God's beautiful creation and feeding and watching the birds and squirrel's. Went to Field Of The Wood's, Helen,Ga, Cherokee, and Maggie Valley. The deck with the swing was used a lot too. Owners are very nice and helpful. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you for sharing your beautiful mountain home and hope to return in the near future. May God bless you and your family

                                I have been to SW North Carolina several times, and this house has the best view yet. Chalet style house is clean and private, with well equipped kitchen and nice multi-level floor plan. Decks are large and take full advantage of view of lake Hiwassee and surrounding mountains. Quick access to marina and boat rental. Owners are friendly and helpful with info. It is a winner!

                                It was a girls week of fun and relaxation (ages 50's to 80's). Words can't begin to express how beautiful the view is from this home. The home has everything you could possibly want, very clean and well maintained and the beds were very comfortable. A very quiet area, really enjoyed all the birds and squirrels. We even saw a fox one evening. Carlos was so friendly and helpful! Thank you for sharing your home with us, none of us wanted to leave! We made several day trips and everything is within an hour or two. The drive to Ashville and the trolley tour was definitely worth it, as was Cherokee. We will be back next year if not sooner. It is just a perfect place! I have already recommended this property to several people for their vacations. Thank you again so much!

                              Year Purchased: 2000

                              About the owner: We are residents of Tallahassee, Florida, and are retired high-school teachers. 2013 marks our 44th wedding anniversary! We have two children who also live in Tallhassee and two grandchildren who 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.

                              Why the Owner 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.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              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.
