Everyone in your traveling party will love this cabin's phenomenal, bucolic location inside Bear Paw on Lake Hiwassee, a 24-hour gated community built in the 1930's while TVA was building the Hiwassee Dam. This community boasts an array of great recreational facilities available for guest enjoyment, including an Olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis courts, playground, and basketball court at the Bear Paw clubhouse.

An oasis of calm

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely lovely time at the Cabin - it was everything that we wanted. Relaxed, isolated, and incredibly well-equipped it gave us a relaxing week in a beautiful part of the world.

Many thanks!

It was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

It was very clean and comfortable. We would stay there again. My only complaint is the toilet paper. It was so thin you could read a newspaper through it. You had to use twice the amount to do the job. Took care of it - went and bought my own.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great house and owner left us notes to be more helpful. Plenty of beds, sheets, blankets and pillows. Very relaxing. No cell service which is the area not the house. We had a friend with a house on the lake so really enjoyed all Bear Paw had for us.

Comfort, Equipped and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin is a great getaway and located fair for a week of water fun. Its relaxing and extremely well equipped. A short active walk from a great jumping rock (not easy to get to) its between 2 properties in an inlet that collects washed up debris. The Cabin itself is large with plenty of room for multiple families. The kitchen has more than most home kitchens (every gadget needed). The decor is very antique and cabin friendly motif (almost too many personal antiques it makes you nervous) The cabin has a very personal feel overall. A wonderful deck for gathering and chatting, a separate screened porch for weather or buggy days. A rentable gas golf cart would make this place perfect. Our week had no issues what so ever on the Cabin side of things! Owner left great instructions and labeling for everything. BTW leave your movies, books and games at home this place was loaded with everything to occupy a person for a snowy winter inside. Thank you so much for a well equipped wonderful cabin

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, everything was so beautiful. Quiet area, people are very friendly and helpful there. Especially at the Marina, we rented a boat - the best experience from our vacation! Lake was almost empty, clean, wonderful! Will recommend to all my friends. We love the area so much that we are actually thinking of moving down there.

House was exceptionally clean, we could find everything there - from linen to family games - you name it. Thank you!!!
