About the property

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.

A Great Fall Getaway with lots of Fish!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Cozy little cabin

  • 5 of 5

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.

Really nice cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! This is an awesome two bedroom cabin that retains some of its historic features but with a nicely updated kitchen. If you're looking for a getaway you'll be comfortable here. The cabin has wifi so that's also a plus.

Comfortable and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Overall the stay was good. When we first got there the code that was provided for the lock to get into the cabin was incorrect, if I had not had prior contact with the owner it would taken a lot longer to get in and after a 9 hour drive it was frustrating. The cabin was comfortable and cozy. Be aware that you do have to park on the street and climb the steps up the hill to get to the cabin and while that was not an issue for us anyone that does not get around so well will have problems.
