Such a cute cabin that feels very cozy and homey!
Carolina Mornings was great at leaving diligent notes and communicating promptly leading up to the check-in date! We had all the info we needed right in the guest portal so did not need to directly reach out. Such a cute cabin that feels very cozy and homey! Would stay again!

We had the absolute best weekend here! This was a perfect spot. I thought we were here to celebrate my best friend's birthday but ended in a surprise proposal at the top of Eagle Rock! Such beautiful views. This cabin and city will always hold a special memory for us - thank you for sharing your home!

Cozy and secluded. It was perfect for our trip to Chimney Rock. Made it up the road to the house in a 2020 Mustang with ease, even in the rain. Definitely will be back!

Highly recommend this lodge for a quaint group getaway tucked away in the mountains!
Bear Paw Lodge was the perfect getaway for our friend group over New Year’s weekend! The lodge has spectacular views and is located in an extremely quiet/private overlook on the mountain (but definitely take note of the driving instructions provided by the host). The lodge was spacious for three couples and had a fully equipped kitchen for meals. We thoroughly enjoyed cozy nights by the fireplace and the hot tub. The location is about 20 miles but 40 min drive to downtown Asheville. We really enjoyed visiting Chimney Rock (a cute little town nearby). Highly recommend this lodge for a quaint group getaway tucked away in the mountains!

Thank you for making our weekend getaway so amazing.
Thank you for making our weekend getaway so amazing. Bear Paw Lodge exceeded all our expectations and was the perfect location to make new memories in a beautiful mountainside setting. We couldn’t have asked for a better scene for leaf peeping and welcoming in the majesty of autumn.

Such a beautiful home!
Such a beautiful home! The views are amazing. I enjoyed the drive to the cabin, it was very mountain-like. The hot tub was a great feature too. Easy drive to Asheville and surrounding attractions.

Great, Spacious, and Exactly as Advertised
The log cabin is great, spacious, exactly as advertised. We had no view the first day due to bad weather but inside it was cozy and warm, and Chimney Rock village and Ashville were nice to visit. The bbq and jacuzzi were also very nice. Watching the sun rise in the hot tub in the morning, fantastic. Bring your own wood and make a fire before leaving and roast marshmallows. Top. A beautiful luxurious location.
Beate N - Posted: 3/7/2023 - Stayed from: 3/2/2023 to 3/4/2023
Very Cozy and Spacious
Very spacious property. Excellent outdoor lighting to help get in at night. Very cozy living room and porch!

Almost as if our visit had been prepared by Goldilocks
When the climb up the mountainside yielded to the gentle downward slope of the driveway of the Bear Paw Lodge, we were thrilled to discover a large yet cozy getaway that somehow fits comfortably between the stunning views of the rocky peaks that line the Broad River valley and the intimacy that its furnishings and amenities provide inside. Towering as high as tree tops and weathering passing summer thunderstorms peaceably, it was the perfect weekend get away for this suburban couple. Despite having two full baths, two large bedrooms, and another bed in the loft ---which doubles as a delightful game room--- the Bear Paw Lodge fit us just right, almost as if our visit had been prepared by Goldilocks and the Three Bears themselves.

Can Not Say Enough How Amazing The View Is...
Superb!! If you brave the gravel road up the view will blow you away. Cabin had clear view of chimney rock and many other mountain ranges, can not say enough how amazing the view is. This cabin is loved by the owners, they put extra care into making sure your stay is comfortable and fun. Very well stocked, we only needed food…literally just food. Tons of games, books and other extras. We all slept great in the super comfortable beds, definitely would stay here again.
