“Wonderful stay!”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2016

Very enjoyable stay. Greg and Paula were excellent host. The cabin was super clean and decorated very nicely and was really cozy and comfortable just as advertised by the reviews I had read before we rented it. Definitely would highly recommend Greg and Paula and their cabin to any one wishing to rent a vacation getaway in the area.

Response from the owner Thanks for this awesome testimony! We strive to make our cabins your home away from home. Greg and Paula

“Great Cabin. Wonderful owners who take pride in their cabin and it shows”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2016

This is my second stay Greg and Paula's wonderful cabin. Loved it the first time and, two years later, it is even better. They have upgraded the cabin with great care not to destroy it's essence. I personally loved the screened in section of the surround deck. Great place to sit in the evening and just listen to nature. Greg and Paula will help you with any need you might have. In the cabin is a book telling your all about the points of interests with directions to them. My dog and I love parks, and there are a lot of them in the area, some of which are not on the maps. We have the fun of exploring without getting too lost. Great Fun. Thanks, Greg and Paula for another great time.

Response from the owner Thanks soooo much for this wonderful review! We love having you come back to visit us in the beautiful Smokys! Greg and Paula

“Another FANTASTIC July at Bear Cub”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2015

I don't know how I would keep teaching if it weren't for my wonderful summers at Bear Cub which is owned by Greg and Paula Lawrence. This is my fifth or sixth year staying there for July, and it is always wonderful. The place is immaculate and VERY well furnished right down to dishes, micro, SS appliance, Kuerig, regular coffee maker, and even flashlights in the event of a power outage. It has become my family's North Carolina summer home at a very affordable price. There is a ton of stuff to do in Murphy, yet it's not all touristy like Gatlinberg. Rather than enumerate all the activities, I would suggest the reader google Murphy NC, and look for activities. It is so natural with a top notch wellness center for a family rate of 100 a month or by the week or day. Greg and Paula are OLD FASHIONED kind of folks who are always available but never forward. They are respectful of privacy and just good and kind people. I can't find anything negative to even say. Our two dogs and cat are happy, my sixteen year old daughter is happy, and my wife is happy with the place. Good people mean good times. Rodney

Response from the owner Thanks Rodney for another awesome review!! The Fields take advantage of a great deal we have for our cabins. If you book a month(28 days) you pay for only 3 weeks and get the 4th week free.Looking forward to your next stay for 2016! Have a great rest of summer.We love having your family.

Very nice cabin, quickly feels like home. The owners anticipate your needs and cares for them or provides written instructions on what to do. They have access to a nice size pond for fishing. The provide a Zebco rod/reel and a "cane" pole, but you'll need some light tackle and bait. Would have been a "5" if there was a better view. For us, being in the mountains with family was more than enough.

Response from the owner Glad you had such a nice stay. Bear Cub is surrounded by large trees.All our cabins are fully equipped for your every need. Thanks for the review! Greg and Paula

We had a wonderful week at the cabin! We all loved it! The boys had room to play outside and we enjoyed the peacefulness on the deck at night! The cabin had was very clean and we had a very warm welcome when we arrived. I am so happy that we found this place and we hope to return!

Response from the owner It is wonderful to see the children having such a great time. What well mannered sons they have.Thanks for taking time to write this awesome review! Greg and Paula

“Excellence all around!”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2015

We wanted a relaxing vacation with our 2 year old daughter and this cabin was the perfect fit! It was so clean and safe for our little one. The cabin is gorgeous and we had the best service from Greg and Paula! Truly couldn't have asked for more! There was even a baby gate to keep her from going upstairs and latching on the gates to the wrap around porch. This is the perfect place to stay if you have a young child. There was lots to do and most activities were within 20 minutes. We went hiking and saw a waterfall, shopped in downtown murphy, visited the bible park and most of all, RELAXED! We will be coming back for sure!

Response from the owner Thanks for the outstanding review! Everyone who visits the beautiful Smokys leaves fully relaxed. We also have a porta-crib available for the young ones! Greg and Paula

“great cabin”

Reviewed 10 May 2015

As three Australians doing a road trip through the south, we stumbled upon this cabin and it was fantastic (heaps better than hotels). Had a great feel and Greg and Paula were fantastic (with our late notice and asking for an extended stay - it was that good). Heaps to do in town - ATV park was excellent. was a real highlight of our road trip

Response from the owner If was great fun meeting the lads from down under. Wonderful folks!! We love having guests from other countries.Thanks for the awesome review! Greg and Paula

“Great place”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2015

Great home, my whole family loved it, would reccomend to anyone. Greg and Paula offered many things to do on their website ehich helped us decide where we wanted to go.

Response from the owner Murphy is a great central location to all the fun things to do in the Smokys. Thanks for taking the time to post this great review! Greg and Paula

“Beautiful cabin and location.”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2014

Our family stayed the week of Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. The cabin was beautiful, spacious and decorated for the holidays. We mostly stayed around the cabin and just relaxed. However, we did visit Fields of the Wood that is just a couple miles from the cabin. We had a great time walking the hiking trails and just enjoying the beautiful mountain views. Greg and Paula are such nice people and available should you need assistance with anything. We would definitely rent this cabin again.

Response from the owner What a great review! Fields of the Wood is the world's largest Ten Commandment display.We decorate all our cabins from Thanksgiving until after the first of the year. Greg and Paula
