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.

"Beautiful log cabin, very comfortable place, very peaceful environment, slightly difficult to get to high up on the mountain, very steep and narrow gravel road, I was glad I never encountered another car on my way up.
