5/5 Excellent

Great place!!!

We have been coming to Bear Paw for many years, we had a excellent time at your place. I loved the location! We hope to stay here again! Thanks Ken for a wonderful home!

5/5 Excellent

Very nice, clean and organized house. Good location and enjoyable for kids and adults.

We would like to use more than 5 stars for Kushner's house. It is an amazing house and we really enjoyed our days. The house is very comfortable and spacious. It was very clean and organized. Inside the house you can find tags with instructions and recommendations, those were very helpful. You can find all that you need for your days: kitchen supplies, bathrooms supplies, board games, DVD, books. You never get bored inside the house. Outside is wonderful, too. You can do hiking around the Paw Bear, walk close to the lake or sitting on the deck. If you are lucky you can see deers and a beautiful fox that walks around the house. Murphy is a nice town, it is about 40 min from the house, there are a lot of restaurants and nice places. We drove to Cataloochee Ski Resort (2 hours to North) and we could enjoy the snow. We recommend the house!!! Thank you Mr Kushner. ***It will be a good idea arrive to the house before the darkness. The path is a little tricky when you get to Sunrise Lane. The Signal is very dark and you cannot see it during the night. (maybe is better if the letters could be white)

5/5 Excellent

4 Days at Bear Paw

We found it to be clean and spacious. The gas fireplace was a plus as being from south Florida, we were not use to the nighttime temperatures. The trees have grown to obstruct the view of Lake and mountains. Nice area to explore
