About Robert


Thank you for your interest in our North Carolina private retreat.

After traveling around the world with Rob's work, and seeing some spectacular places, we found Bear Paw. With privacy, breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains & Lake Hiwassee, the Marina, Swimming Pool, Tennis Court, etc. and easy access, it has everything. When we are here, we relax.

The Lodge is for those who appreciate outdoor activities .. a comfortable home, and time with family.

We enjoy sharing it with friends and families that want to GET AWAY TO THE MOUNTAINS & RELAX.


Why Robert chose Murphy


It's beautiful views and convenient location.

The Lodge offers privacy and gorgeous lake & mountain views .. and it's just 3 minutes to the Lake & Marina .. Pool .. Tennis Court.

Bear Paw Resort is in a very private area of western North Carolina, away from it all.

It's the perfect place to get away & relax or enjoy an action packed vacation.

Beautiful four seasons a year. There's something for everyone.


It's Perfect For A FAMILY Vacation .. Or A ROMANTIC GETAWAY.




What makes this house unique

After you arrive and settle in, take your drink out onto the porch and find a comfortable rocker .. enjoy the spectacular mountain view.

You will find yourself TOTALLY RELAXED.

WARNING. When you come to Bear Paw you may never want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our friends recommended the Pine cottage to us and now we know why. We felt so relaxed and at home here. It's just what we needed. We've gone through some difficult times during the last few years with the economy. We walked, talked, enjoyed great meals and BBQ'd on the deck. It reminded us what is important. This is truly a special place. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Wonderful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the pine cottage was absolutely delightful. The cottage was tastefully decorated and offered plenty of room and all of the amenities we could hope for on our vacation. We found the bear paw area a beautiful, quiet escape from the cities. The location was conviently close to zip lining, rafting and the town of Murphy. It was an easy walk to the pool and tennis courts. The mountain view marina was also very close and their friendly staff helped us enjoy a beautiful day on the water. The owners were wonderful to work with and if we are fortunate enough to vacation in this area again we would certainly return to the pine cottage.

Even Better Than Advertised

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for a week at The Pine Cottage in Bear Paw Resort and it was even nicer than we imagined. We all agreed that is is one of the best vacations we have had. We all enjoyed the pool and we played Tennis with the Tennis racquets they had in the cabin. We also rented a boat and had a great day fishing on the lake. The cottage was so clean and well equipped with everything we could possibly need. We plan on coming back next year.

Wonderfully quiet getaway!!!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our extended weekend! It was exactly the quiet, laid back, peaceful time I had hoped for. We were welcomed by the American flag : ) , fresh Hydrangeas on the patio table, the ladybug game and Valerie, who helped us to feel right at home. The cottage had evrything we needed to keep everyone entertained, which was really appreciated. Our grandchildren loved the pool and playground but their favorite activity was catching fireflies.

The cottage was clean, well maintained and just as described. The owners were very personable and helpful and had the foresight to provide movies, games and books for us to use, while we were there. For the more adventurous spirits, hiking and rafting are an easy drive and it is a beautiful area for sightseeing and/or photographing nature at its finest.
