Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Cozy Cottage is the ideal place for a relaxing getaway. It is located on a hill side in the private gated community of Bear Paw on Lake Hiwassee. The cottage is in walking distance of the tennis courts, playground, club house, pool, and fishing pond. The nearby marina has boats available for rent or you can rent a slip for your boat. You will find wireless internet at the club house 24/7.

Cozy Cottage was built in the 1930 to house the Hiwassee Dam construction workers. The cottage has been modernized with today’s conveniences. This cottage provides the backdrop for a relaxing vacation away from all your worries. While in the rocking chairs on the porch you can sit and enjoy your favorite cup of coffee. It is like going back in time when life was much less complex! You will hate to leave Bear Paw and return to the hectic real world.

About Ellen

This has been a great place for us to vacation with our children. It has been like going to camp with them. We have enjoyed the great outdoors ! We rarely watched TV. We would play cards and board games. Just have family time and create wonderful memories!

Ellen purchased this Cottage in 1997

                                                            Perfect "home base" for our Spring Break adventures!

                                                            Stephanie M.

                                                            The cabin was everything it claimed to be. The community is wonderful and well-maintained. The location was perfect to take advantage of day trips in NC, TN, and GA. We did it all! Just a head's up - the cabin is small, four persons (two small girls, two adults) was definitely the limit but we really enjoyed having everything we needed at our fingertips and the ability to have some wonderful bonding time. Can't say enough good things about the cabin AND hosts, who were responsive and kind. Thank you for sharing this awesome little spot with us!

                                                            Amazing experience!

                                                            Natalia G.

                                                            We had the best time, everything was so nice. I am glad we chose to stay here. We will definitely be coming back for a second visit!

                                                            We appreciate your review! We are so thankful you had a nice time.


                                                            Cozy, clean, quiet!!

                                                            Bill H.Tampa

                                                            The cottage was great! Everything you need is provided to relax there, minus the groceries. It was super clean and far far away from the crowds of everyday life. Definitely worth the price. If you're looking for a secluded cabin in the woods with no neighbours this isn't it. But it is in a quiet gated community in the mountains. Paved roads are a plus for many. Prefect little place for a romantic couples retreat. Thanks for sharing with us!!

                                                            A Great Fall Getaway with lots of Fish!

                                                            Amy C.

                                                            My family and I spend 4 nights here at the cabin and we really enjoyed it! Everything was wonderful and clean. Our host was very kind and helpful, although we didn't really need any help because everything was so clearly explained. The screened in porch was amazing and the kitchen was great. There were four of us total, and we fit comfortably in the house with no problems. There is a hill to walk up, but it was very doable and there are easy steps that make it very easy. We fished a great deal at the pond right at the end of the road and caught several bluegill and a few bass. If you get the chance you should for sure check out the dam and the river right across the street from the Bear Paw neighborhood. If you plan to do any cooking, make sure you bring your spices- salt and pepper were the only spices stocked in the cabin.

                                                            So glad you had a nice trip and caught some fish. Please come again!

                                                            This cabin is in the most delightful area. Everything was clean, people were friendly and helpful. Would love to own a cabin here.......maybe someday! The cabin is cute as can be and well equipped. Note, it does require climbing a steep hill if you have mobility issues it would be difficult. That being said, I'm old and overweight and did fine...lol Ellen was the kindest woman, she was so gracious and pleasant to deal with. We were evacuating from Hurricane Irma and she made this difficult time so much easier by working with us on arrival and departure times. Thanks again Ellen, May God bless you and yours.
