Wonderful Cottage for a Relaxing Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I visited this cottage for a mother-daughter getaway weekend. We rented a Pontoon Boat at the marina which is down the road from the cottage and spent hours on the gorgeous Lake Hiwassee, visited the towns of Murphy, NC and Blue Ridge, Ga, and also visited the John C. Campbell Folk School. The community where the cabin is located is a quaint and quiet and perfect for unplugging and relaxing. The pool is large and clean and a great amenity after a long walk up and down the surrounding hills. The cabin was comfortable and cute and had a spacious living room. The owners were so helpful. Carol answered all of our questions and is a delightfully kind person.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Relaxing and very private surrounding. There were other homes nearby but very little activity, just right for our vacation. Short distances from the lakes public ramp and other places to visit, ( mining, rafting, fishing, some shopping) beautiful views of the mountains and it's surrounding. If you haven't seen the Feilds Of The Woods its a must, simply a gorgeous site to see. I will definitely return for another visit.

The Spruce Cabin was perfect for our stay at Bear Paw.

  • 5 of 5

The owners sent us a detailed email with all of the information we needed

to get into the cabin and enjoy our stay. That included how to reach them while we were there. Their message and their cabin was so welcoming that we felt at home when we walked in the door. The cabin is clean and comfortable including all of the furniture and the beds. We loved the screened porch with rocking chairs and a small table. It was a real treat to have 2 full bathrooms. We were visiting with 2 other couples and getting ready on time was so easy. Bear Paw and the surrounding area is beautiful. The lake is one of our favorites for boating and swimming off the boat. We would definitely rent this cabin again.
