The 'Unity' Condo - great for extended families - owner's super to work with

  • 5 of 5

We took our adult children to this condo between Christmas and New Year's Eve and had a great time just relaxing and being together. The open floor plan meant we were all sort of in the same room for talking, eating and playing games but had four rooms for each person/couple to have privacy.

As the owner noted, there is 'nothing to do' up there in the winter but that is exactly what we were looking for on this trip. I think we were the only renters in the whole resort.

Loved the four separate bedrooms (the master is in the loft so there is less privacy!) and four bathrooms (two full and two halfs). View was outstanding. Fireplace warmed up the atmosphere. Sofas and chairs were comfy and plenty for seven people.

Did all our meals in. The kitchen is small on space but fully equipped - better equipped than most places we rent. Can't think of any utensil we lacked. Even a stacked washer/dryer if you need it. Smoked some pork in the Big Green Egg and had to improvise a bit with a missing part.

Challenges with the one of the two heating systems were addressed super fast by the owner. Great responsiveness on his part. Really appreciate it very much.

One word for planning. This condo is on the other side of the lake from Murphy, so the nearest quick stop corner store is 20 minutes drive and nearest grocery store and restaurant is 35 minutes away. We just brought everything and never had to leave. If you drive up from Georgia, and you need to hit up a grocery store, I'd recommend Ingles in Blue Ridge GA. It's only 45 minutes from the condo and way closer than driving off route to Murphy.

Owner's Response: I’m so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Bear Paw. Great suggestion about stopping at the Ingles in Blue Ridge- they have very good meats and fish (I actually got Halibut there once). I welcome you to come back in summer when there’s plenty to do! Thanks so much!

Beautiful Lakeview

  • 4 of 5

The condo is super nice. It's in Bear Paw which is one of our favorite getaways. We had an unexpected snow which made the mountains and woods glisten. And it was a little cold which is the only reason we don't give this a 5 star rating. John, the owner, was great. I definitely recommend this condo but maybe during a little warmer weather. It's a lovely getaway for sure!

A Great place! Good communication! Place was well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

Good Internet .The pictures does not justify the beauty of the cabin. very spacious and very much comfortable. You will have an awesome view of Lake Hiwassee from every balcony of each room. We loved the architecture and the location of the house. Loved the entire experience . 5 Star host was always available to help us for our queries.

Secluded Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in this spacious townhome with amazing views from every level. We came here to see the solar eclipse and it was amazing. The home is within walking distance from the marina and we were able to rent a boat during our stay. It is an older property but it has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. We really liked having 2 living spaces. One for adults and another for the kids to hang out in. Would definitely come again!!!

Rodents and worms

  • 2 of 5

I have enjoyed and had success using VRBO for years. Rarely have I been disappointed. This rental was the exception. There were mice that ran straight through the living area, earth worms on the ceiling and floor, and the lower level was barely bareable because of the musty odor. Rustic is an understatement.

Owner's Response: First of all there are no earthworms on the ceiling or floors. This guest informed me of a mouse, I responded right away had my professional pest control service immediately come out to catch the mouse (which he did the day they left). I’ve never had this issue before. It is also important to note that this property is in a remote mountainous area on lake.
