Property Details

Social Distancing at it's Finest! Enjoy Peacefully Private Quietude, and Phenomenal Mountain Views await... "Bear Pawz" was Completely Renovated, and Opened to Guests in Fall of 2020. Once you get here, you won't want to leave.

“Bear Pawz” is a newly renovated (Fall of 2020), Single-Story, Luxurious Cabin, featuring Designer Appointments throughout and Boasting Spectacular long range layers of Mountain Views.
This Luxury cabin is located on a quiet and very private hill top with close proximity to Fishing, Whitewater Rafting, Tubing, Swimming, Hiking Trails, Shopping, Dining, Mountain Biking at the Tsali, Horse back riding, the Nantahala Outdoor Center (N.O.C.) and The Great Smoky Mountain National Park or Harrah’s Casino.

On arrival, you will appreciate the level parking area and only 3 stairs to access the entire cabin. Relax on one of the Rocking Chairs on the Covered entry porch while you wait for your guests to arrive, or connect to the WiFi and send your friends photos of the Amazing Cabin and Views.
The living room offers Soaring warm wood ceilings, a Plush leather sofa, loveseat, and side chair that are placed to enjoy the Massive Native Stone wood burning Fireplace and the Panoramic Long Range Mountain Views that are Mesmerizing and Energizing…
To your left, you will find a Comfortable Lounge with access to the View Deck and offers a large Satellite HD Flatscreen TV that is the ideal place to watch your favorite Movies while Gazing out over the ever present Mountain Views. On this end of the Cabin, there is a spacious Queen Bedroom and a beautifully renovated Full Bathroom.
Directly ahead are doors leading out to the open Deck where you can enjoy the Views and the New (2021) Sparkling Hot Tub.
To your right, the Master Suite with ensuite Bathroom, Comfortable King Bed that is placed to take full advantage of the Mountain Views, Doors leading out to a Covered View Deck, and a Flatscreen TV. Also on this side of the cabin is the 3rd Bedroom which offers a Twin DayBed with a Twin Trundle underneath, and an Assortment of Games.

Enjoy a friendly game of your choice while people start gathering around the kitchen to plan a meal.

The Gourmet Chef’s Kitchen with a top of the line “Jenn-Air” electric range with Convect Bake/Convect Roast, and Bread Proofing settings will delight the Chef/Baker in your group. Cookware, Cutlery, and Dishes are provided. For the BBQ’er, a Gas grill is located outside on the Deck, where guests can enjoy a cook-out experience. The dining table seats 6 people comfortably, with additional seating at the Breakfast Bar.
After a day of shopping and fun, relax or spend hours resting on the wooden rockers on the large deck while taking in the sights and sounds of Nature, the Gorgeous Mountain Views, and Star-Gazing. Once you are away from the City lights, and you turn off all of the Cabin lights, you will see more stars than ever before. In the summer time, the Fire Flies magically twinkle around the property...

The Fire-Pit is a great place to Gather and create Warm Memories - remember to pack the fixins for S'mores, and brush up on your Campfire stories.
To maximize outdoor enjoyment, the View Deck wraps around the back of the Cabin, and has a Gate on each side.

There are 3 bedrooms in the cabin. The Spacious Master Suite offers a comfortable King bed, large flat screen HDTV, and access to the covered deck area. The en-suite bathroom offers a lovely soaker tub, large separate shower and a vanity with ample work space.
The second bedroom offers a queen bed that is prepared with high thread count luxury linens and bedding, and a Flatscreen TV.
The 3rd bedroom features a twin day bed with a twin trundle bed underneath, and an assortment of Games.

For Guest convenience, a full size washer and dryer are provided.

With the location of the cabin close enough to hop into town but far from enough away to feel socially distant, you may never want to leave… Do not miss out on “Bear Pawz” Mountain Charm!

Cancellation Policy

Our Cancellation Policy "In a nutshell": 
​Each cabin is individually Owned and typically is the only property the specific Owner has to offer for rent. When a Guest occupies time on this Owner's calendar, then has to cancel the reservation, the property may remain empty. Although we empathize with your emergency, it really is not fair to "transfer" your financial hardship to the property Owner.
* Travelers/Cancellation Insurance will be offered at the time you reserve the cabin. If cancelling or encountering an unfortunate emergency  is a concern for you, We highly recommend you purchase this Insurance. Travelers Insurance is a "per reservation" policy, not a "per person" policy, and covers much more than just cancellations. To learn more now, go to itravelinsured. The cost is approximately 6.95% of the total.

FULL REFUND - Cancellations that are made more than sixty (60) days prior to the arrival date. (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
50% REFUND - Cancellations with over 30 days Notice (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
Cancellations that are made within 30 days of the arrival date, or changes that result in a shortened stay, forfeit the full advance payment and reservation deposit. Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent, however, Credit will be Offered to Guests in good standing, for cancelled dates that are re-rented. 

COVID-19 PROVISION: In the event Swain County would implement Travel Restrictions, or Closes Short Term Rentals, we will offer to reschedule reservations to within 1 year. Modification/Change Fee will be waived. Covid-19 Cleaning Policies and Procedures will be emailed to all Guests, prior to arrival. *Cleaning Products are EPA Regulated *Cleaning Procedures are per CDC Guidelines.

Deposit Policy

50% is Paid at the time of reserving the cabin. Balance is paid 60 days prior to check in. (To request an exception/alternate payment arrangement, please contact us).
Details available at
***Book 6 nights and the 7th night is Free! NOTE: For reservations of 2 weeks or more, mid-stay Cleaning will need to be added at a discounted rate.

Rate varies due to seasonality and holidays.

Please select your dates on our online booking calendar for an exact quote.

"Enjoyed sunsets on the deck!"

by Elizabeth


The cabin was exactly as advertised—views were amazing, cabin was clean, directions were accurate and helpful. We couldn’t have had a more perfect time and thoroughly enjoyed sunsets on the deck!

"The mountain views are truly breathtaking!"

by Kurt


We really enjoyed our stay. The mountain views are truly breathtaking!! If my kids didn’t want to go and do things we would’ve stayed parked on the deck all day. The home is immaculate inside and out. You can tell the owner is very picky and maintains the home very well. We will definitely be back and would love to stay in the winter time and enjoy the wood stove and mountain views.

"Fantastic in every sense of the word"

by Ryan


Difficult to encapsulate this cabin in a few sentences. Our experience was fantastic in every sense of the word. Bryson City is a mountain town nestled between Nantahala and the Great Smoky Mountains, a hikers dream without the burden of an overcrowded vacation destination. Highly recommend the Bear Pawz Cabin, and NC Mountain Realty. The views alone are worth a drive and ascent of Glory Mountain. Hearing Northern Cardinal in the morning, Whippoorwill in the evening, and the gravity of wind across blossoming Blue Ridge Mountain side. Don't trust my envisage of solitude- pick up a pair of Danner's and head west of Asheville yourself. The cabin is exceedingly spacious yet cozy. Well decorated. A well built fireplace. Nice grill and hot tub. A wrap around porch with LED lighting that would make HGTV blush. Seriously, impressive collection of thoughtful light fixtures (thankfully, labelled switches). As a young physician traveling with a young ICU nurse we came to Bryson City, and departed better versions of ourselves. It was a trip we will think about during the ebb and flow of life, and sincerely hope you have all the experience we had- and then some!
