This sure would make a great vacation spot! Rent it out when you aren’t using it! This home was built in 1934. It is located in Murphy, North Carolina within the Bear Paw Resort. So it appears the resort owns all of the land. That has some bonuses, they maintain all of the grounds. Murphy is in the far west of the state near the Tennessee border and also near Harrah’s Casino. The resort offers hiking, tennis courts, pool, and a marina. The resort is situated along the banks of Lake Hiawassee. It does have a gated and guarded entrance. One bedroom, one bathroom, and 486 square feet. $84,900

From the Zillow listing:


Step back in time with this adorable 1934 cottage located within Bear Paw Resort. The cottages were originally built to house the workers that were building the Hiwassee Dam! The grounds around the cottage are owned and maintained by the Bear Paw Cottages…no yard work here! Just relaxing & having fun. Whether enjoying the mountains, or the tennis courts, swimming pool, marina, or other amenities, you will not be bored! New roof, new flooring (although orig hardwood floors are underneath), & updated bathroom are already done. Yet, the home still has the orignal charm w/the doors and windows from 1934. There’s also a screened porch to enjoy nature, a brick grill, and a partial basement.
