The sounds of a rushing mountain stream will greet you as you begin your vacation at Bear Paw Falls. This cozy 2 bedroom home is secluded, but just minutes from the center of Maggie Valley. Bear Paw Falls is the perfect place for a truly delightful family venture yet cozy enough for a quiet get-a-way. Enjoy peace and tranquility of the fresh mountain air as your steaks cook on the grill. Soak your feet in the babbling stream after a long day of hiking and sightseeing. On those colder evenings, you can curl up in front of a roaring fire while sipping cocoa. Grab a good book and enjoy nature in the porch swing or grab a board game and sit on the picnic table and enjoy some family time. Conveniently located to Waynesville, and only 10 minutes from Ingles and Publix grocery stores, or Walmart. Downtown, Main Street in Waynesville is only 15 min away where you can enjoy restaurants like Sauced, Sweet Onion, Boojum Brewery, Firefly and many more.

Bear Paw Falls is located on a paved road with a steady grade, and the driveway is hard packed dirt and gravel. We do encourage you to utilize a 4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle during the winter months. Seasonally, we do experience inclement weather in this region, that may limit accessibility.
