About the property

3 BR/2 B Cabin up hill from Lake, with dock

Truly a get away! Tucked in among the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, bathed by a 6,000 acre lake and virtually surrounded by 500,000 acres of the Nantahala National Forest, there is a place called Bear Paw. Our home rests inside of Bear Paw. It is a Lake front property with dock. Bear Paw is a gated Community with pool, tennis courts and playground. Located near Hiwassee Dam, Fields of the Wood, and 40 minute drive from the Ocoee River and 60 minute drive to the Nantahalla river. The New Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino Nice is just a 30 min drive away! Flat parking area. About 60 yards to lake from basement. One local marina, located inside the community.

Kimberly Nunn purchased this cabin in 1994

Why Kimberly Nunn chose Smoky Mountains

This property was purchased in 1965 by Kim's mother and father, before she was born. We built the house in 1994 and have enjoyed many peaceful times there with family and friends. We decided to 'share' our slice of heaven with others and put it on VRBO. It is a great place to disconnect from the rest of the world! There is no cable but we do have Wi-Fi, Netflix and movies to enjoy your disconnect time with. Cel phone service does not exist in this community but we do have a house phone. The home is situated in a cove on Lake Hiwassee, the dock is a short walk down the path of beautiful trees. The TVA regulates the water level greatly throughout the year but it is sure to be floating all summer. The summers are special but I particularly love the solitude of the Fall and Winter here.

average rating of 4.9 based on 10 reviews

Beautiful, quite and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Many hiking opportunities and beautiful views. No cell service which was amazing for us to unplug and just enjoy ourselves (there was still WiFi). The house was super cozy but also spacious. We slept well, enjoyed the decks and did lots of cooking without having to bring any pans, serving items or utensils.

What a lovely getaway. Remote, but safe. The cabin was very comfortable, just the right size and had everything we needed. Loved the porch! The children had a blast and so did I.

Wonderful Lake Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at Our Piece of Serenity during our stay through Labor Day Weekend 2016. The cabin was exactly as advertised, with all amenities accessible. We have been coming to Bear Paw for years to enjoy Lake Hiwassee, and this cabin was no exception to being able experience the lake. Working with Kim was a breeze, her instructions made arrival and departure quite easy. I highly recommend for a relaxing getaway!

Our family had a wonderful vacation! The house was great. We swam from the dock as well as fished. The water in the lake is so clean and clear that we could see fish swimming around the dock standing on the deck of the house. This is our 3rd yr. of vacationing at Bear Paw and we love it there. We only used the pool for a few hours one day of our stay! We rented a boat and had a blast tubing on the lake. Kim was excellent to work with.

Great Place to Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My whole family enjoyed our stay here. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. The lake is at full pond from around mid June to mid August and plenty deep to dock a boat during that time. It is a beautiful emerald green and you can see the bottom down to about 10 feet. The house is plenty big enough for everyone to do their own thing or do something together. There are two lake view decks (upper/lower) and a nice screened porch. There is also a great marina within the community where you can rent a boat, kayaks, or paddle boards. The community pool was nice and clean and large enough for everyone to swim. I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for a lakefront vacation rental property.
