When we arrived we were met by the owners Tracy and Joel. There were very accommodating and very friendly but not nosy. Joel seemed to understand when people wanted something or needed something and he would ask but never annoy. We had privacy yet we all knew that if we needed anything they would jump up "ready to serve". The... More

Thank you Kevin for the wonderful review. You described why we call us the "Mom-n-Pop" resort. The resort where we are here if you need us otherwise it is very laid back with no schedules and you just settle in and enjoy. We are thrilled that you found your accommodations top notch as we strive to provide very clean cabins... More

Excellent resort especially for the cost. Our 7 year old daughter had a complete blast playing with all the other kids around, both in the water and out. Quiet enough for adults to relax, but lots of fun for the kids.

We had a wonderful family vacation at Bear Paw. It was very clean, great swimming facilities, the cabin was perfect for our family size. It was very peaceful and enjoyable. We have booked the same cabin for next summer. Can't wait, it was such of a great experience.

Stayed at the Bear Paw over a holiday this summer for 3 nights, the property is well rounded, with many amenities including games, movies and a small shop to get things you may have forgot. The fishing boat was in excellent condition and well maintained. Managers were friendly and helpful with all of our needs. Unfortunately, our gas fireplace did... More

The owners have become friends and really care for their guests and the resort. There are beautiful flowers growing throughout the resort and there are a wide variety of animals to enjoy. Topping that list is the Common Loon, which you can see up close, as the resort owners put in a Loon nest each year. Fishing on the lake... More
