Tucked in the Blue Ridge Mountains and bathed by  6,000-acre Lake Hiwassee virtually surrounded by 500,000 acres of the Nantahala National Forest, there is a place called Bear Paw near Murphy, North Carolina.  The Bear Paw community consists of some 1,090 lots, over 200 homes, 42 cottages, 23 condominiums, a marina, tennis court, pool and clubhouse housing an administrative office and exercise and meeting rooms.  The Bear Paw community includes:

• The Bear Paw Property Owners Association (BPPOA) - the majority of the property owners;

• The Bear Paw Service District (BPSD) - a special recreation and service district ratified by the State of North    Carolina that formally serves the common properties;

• The Cottages;

• Condominium I and II and;               IMPORTANT --->

• Mountain View Marina ;

Since the majority of Bear Paw owners are non-residents, communication of community information is a challenge.  The Bear Paw website was established by the BPPOA to partially address the communication challenge for the entire community.  Please explore the website links to learn of the colorful history of our community, a list of BPPOA and BPSD leadership, details and responsibilities of some of the  Bear Paw organizations, administrative details like by-laws, meeting minutes and newsletters, and possibly most important, the Topics of Interest.  The Topics are current issues under consideration, or rumored to be under consideration, which affect our community.
