Cozy Bear Paw Cottage - Great Mountain Getaway
Murphy, North Carolina
Additional Location Information
Blue Shutter Cottage is located in the residential community of Bear Paw, a private resort community with 24-hour gated security. Bear Paw is located on scenic Hiwassee Lake, approximately two hours from four major cities: Atlanta, GA; Chattanooga and Knoxville, TN; and Asheville, NC.
Hiwassee Lake is almost completely surrounded by protected public land with great boating, fishing & hiking opportunities. Located in close proximity to NC 294 and TN 68 with easy access to the Cherohala Skyway, scenic drives also abound. Plenty of paved, off-street parking is available for vehicles and boat trailers.
Bear Paw is a quiet residential neighborhood, but yet there is a large well-maintained pool (new in 2009) within easy walking distance. There are also tennis and covered basketball courts and a playground for younger children.
Although use of it is not included in the Bear Paw amenities, there is a private full service marina on Hiwassee Lake about a mile from the cottage. The marina offers fishing and pontoon boat rentals, or you can bring your own boat and rent a slip.
The towns of Murphy, NC and Copperhill, TN are each about a 20-minute drive away. Both offer good restaurants and walkable shopping districts. Murphy also has a multi-use greenway trail called the Riverwalk along the Valley and Hiwassee Rivers.
Nantahala and Cherokee National Forests offer a wide variety of outdoor recreation opportunities and the cottage is centrally located to three major southeastern whitewater rivers: Ocoee, Nantahala and Cheoah!
History also abounds through our Cherokee and Appalachian heritage. Visit the local museums, trace the Trail of Tears, or simply enjoy staying in a historic TVA cottage - constructed for workers building Hiwassee Dam.
There's something for everyone in Cherokee County, NC!
