Murphy cabin description

Come relax in our home while having the time of your life!! Or go whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River over class 4 Rapids!!! Please call me with any questions!

Our mountain home includes four bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms with tub/shower. The main floor level has a cozy den, dining area, wood burning fireplace, TV, VCR/DVD with nice video library, a fully-equipped kitchen, one bedroom with double bed, large laundry room and a full bath. This floor has sliding glass doors that lead to a large deck with a seasonal view of the lake and a year-round view of the mountains.

The upper level has a master bedroom with king sized bed. The master offers a fantastic seasonal view of the lake and a year-round view of the mountains from its own deck. The second bedroom has a set of twin beds.

The lower level has a bedroom with a set of twin beds, a furnished living room with a television, DVD player and a half bathroom.

Our home is located within the Bear Paw Resort, very near gorgeous Lake Hiwassee in the mountains of southwestern North Carolina. Lake Hiwassee is an 18-mile long mountain lake that offers great fishing, boating, water sports and swimming. There is also a shared huge swimming pool open from Memorial Day through Labor Day, a full service marina that rents boats, has slip rentals for your own boat, and sells bait for fishing. The resort also has a tennis court, a basketball court, a child's playground, and a child's fishing pond. A secured entrance gate that is manned 27/7 gives peace of mind while you visit Bear Paw.

Please call me or my brother with any questions.

              What a great area for you to get away from it all in our secluded mountain home. You can enjoy an Olympic Size Swimming Pool open from Memorial Day through Labor Day!, A very nice full service Marina with boat ramp is also in the resort of Bear Paw!, Fields of the Wood is less than 15 minutes away. Don't miss the Ocoee whitewater rafting. It is incredible and you can go down the part that was used in the Olympics in 1996. You can also go gem and gold mining and so much more. We hope you visit this golden gem in the smoky mountains of NC.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1975

              About the owner: I love to travel and hope you enjoy our home as much as my family has for 39 years.

              Why the Owner Chose Murphy:
              Our home was built by my family when my brother and I were in High School in Atlanta. We chose Bear Paw because of the fantastic lake, unreal senic drives and the security it offers. The area will take your breath away as you drive through the streets of Bear Paw. The Hiawassee lake is very clean and offers entertainment for all!! This home is very private and sits high above the road. Room for 3 cars on flat surface at top of driveway.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Love the lake and mountains!! We have spent over 39 years at this fantastic place. Home is very private and gives you that home away from home feeling many of us need!! High speed wireless internet provides fun for all and allows you to stay in touch with the world 'or not'. Great deck for outside relaxation. You and your family will love it!!!!
