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 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.
