I stayed at Bear Paw 9-26 through 9-29-2014 with my three aunts and my mom. We had a great time. Low key, great weather. We have stayed at many resorts over the pass 24 years, and Bear Paw was our best experience. Joe and Tracy are the best and so accomodating. The cabin are as they appears on the website.... More

After a hectic and chaotic eight months, my husband and I were looking for a quiet, cozy and stress free spot to recharge our batteries. We lucked out in finding Joel and Tracey's little piece of heaven! Our cozy little Sunflower cabin 8, located a short distance from the waters edge was spotlessly clean and perfectly appointed. We loved watching... More

My family of nine stayed in one of the three bedroom larger cabins. It had such a large living area and we could easily seat all 9 of us for each meal in the kitchen. The kitchen was very well stocked and SO clean. Great screened in porch AND a patio. The wonderful owners were very friendly and helpful. Joel... More

I spent a week here with my extended family. First, it's right on the lake which is a great amenity as the previous two resorts we had stayed in had highly traveled roads between the cabin and the lake. The cabins were clean and well maintained which made it feel like a home away from home. There are too many... More

We've been coming to Bear Paw for almost as many years as Tracey and Joel have owned the resort. They are wonderful people and hard workers at providing great accommodations and a good family experience while respecting the natural environment. They are continually updating cabins, landscaping, equipment, etc. Couldn't ask for more! We've enjoyed socializing with both Tracey and Joel,... More
