About Carlos Gaskin
We are residents of Tallahassee, Florida, and are retired high-school teachers. 2016 marks our 47th wedding anniversary! We have two children who also live in Tallahassee and four grandchildren, two of whom live close to us. We enjoy visiting our rentals in Boston, MA , Nashville, TN, and in Bear Paw near Murphy, NC, but we also enjoy sharing the fun with you. We have many repeat renters who have become friends to us. We keep our rentals clean, well-furnished and updated for your enjoyment.
Carlos Gaskin purchased this House in 2000
Why Carlos Gaskin chose Murphy
We had vacationed in Bear Paw several times and enjoyed the area a great deal. It is in a gated community near Murphy, and has beautiful views. We liked the fact that there is an olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis court and basketball courts to provide entertainment. Our children, who are grown now but were young at the time we built our first house in Bear Paw, absolutely loved to go there. Since the area has rentals and permanent homes, we did not feel like we were tourists; we felt at home.
What makes this House unique
We like swimming and fishing on the lake as well as boating. The swimming pool and playground are nice for the little ones. It is such a peaceful place. If you want activities, there are plenty around, but if you want peace and quiet, Bear Paw is hard to beat.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great week at Bear Paw
Great week with family, very nice property with a killer view of Hiwassee Lake. Property was clean and extremely comfortable.
The owners were so helpful and communicative. We ended up having to leave early due to a broken ankle and the owners were so gracious and helpful. This is a great place to visit and get away from it all and relax in a beautiful environment.
Wonderful stay in Bear Paw as always!
This is our fourth year staying in the Gaskin home in Bear Paw and I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience not only this year, but the past few years. The owners really take pride on the beautiful house and are so attentive to any needs or questions we have during our stay. We have already reserved our stay for next year and cannot wait!
We are so happy to know that you and yours had a good time in Bear Paw! So glad you get to enjoy it the way we do!
Excellent views and a wonderful cabin. Clean upon arrival and everything was as described. I had trouble at first getting into the cabin but owner answered his phone on the first ring and solved my issue immediately! We signed the guest book, and took up the last page, so it is time for a new one... so many people loving your home away from home!
If travelling thru Coker Creek (or via Cherohala Skyway) just know that Google Maps will try to send you via Uniquoi Turnpike, the first 15 miles or so is dirt road. We turned around after 2 miles because it was too rough for our small SUV and it had rained a lot. Instead of using the turnpike, keep going towards Turtletown and then head east towards the cabin.
Thank you, Michael! So glad you had a good trip!
This is the place I go for absolute peace
