Property description

Our 2,200+ square foot chalet style home is nestled in the woods on Lake Hiwassee. It is in the gated community of Bear Paw which is close to Hiwassee Dam, west of Murphy. Lake Hiwassee is a 22 mile long stretch of water with 163 miles of natural shoreline in the Natahala National Forest. The few homes visible on the lake are only a small part of the beauty of the serene combination of water, forest, and mountains you see out on the water. It is where the Blue Ridge Mountains meet the Smokies, nicknamed 'God’s Country'.

The home is very well kept, spacious and tastefully decorated with bear accessories. The living/great room on the entry level has a stone fireplace with gas logs and a tongue groove pine cathedral ceiling which is open to the loft ceiling. There is a 39 inch LED TV,with a DVD player. On this level is also a kitchen and dining area, two bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen) and a full bath. The living/great room opens to a 12' x 26' deck with table, chairs, rocking chairs and a gas grill. The loft upstairs is open to the great room below. There are 2 twin beds, a futon sofa, a 25 inch TV, and DVD/VCR, and a desk in this 13’ x 26’ room and another full bath. A sliding glass door opens to a small covered porch sitting area. Our completed lowest level consists of a 4th bedroom (king), a full bath, and a second great room with gas log fireplace, 39 inch television, DVD/VCR, and a finished laundry room. A deck has been added to the lower level also with a porch swing and another table and chairs. There is also a stone firepit next to the lower deck for guests to enjoy a time gathering around a fire outside. Our home should give you peace and quiet to relax whether it is sitting /fishing on the dock or just listening to birds and sounds of nature, it is a very peaceful place to stay.

Bear Paw is a secluded and private area, but has many amenities which make it a great vacation spot. Boating, fishing, swimming, and water-skiing are possible. The lake is large enough that it is never crowded. There is a marina near to rent boats if you don’t have one, and a launch ramps if you do.

Bear Paw also offers other activities other than the lake. There is an Olympic size swimming pool with chaise lounges, basketball hoops in the Pavilion/Club House, tennis court, exercise room, children’s playground, a small fishing pond and a security guard at the entrance gate 24 hours a day.

Nearby is the dam with picnicking and grills, a drive through the area brings activities as white-water rafting, golfing, horseback riding, or sightseeing from nearby Ocoee, Chattanooga, Helen, or up to the Asheville area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We met in high school and will celebrate our 46th anniversary this year. We have two children.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Hiwassee:
We vacationed around the area. Dick wanted to buy property, build a house and he found Bear Paw. We live in Florida, so took a chance and it has really been a blessing. We love the area, the beauty of the mountains, the lake, the peace, the serenity, and relaxation that comes from being there. We are happy to be able to provide a place for people to vacation and enjoy what we experience in Bear Paw.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, and just sitting on one of the decks enjoying nature
