This was the fourth time we stayed here. My wife and I have rented other mountain homes in the NC mountains but this is the only house we have rented more than once. We are planning a trip back to the King Chalet this fall. The driveway is easy, The house sits on a ridgeline that looks to the West/NW toward Tennessee. Some of the peaks in the view are in TN. The ridge is the highest populated ridge in the Murphy area at about 2800 feet. Local adventure attractions are within an hour drive in any direction and antique & gift shopping is 10 minutes away in downtown Murphy. There is so much to do, we never get bored. Nora is an excellent host who is always on the spot. During one summer visit the AC broke down in the morning. We went hiking that day and by the time we returned the AC was fixed, and that was on a Saturday! Don't worry, the AC unit has since been replaced. If you are a birdwatcher you'll love this place. Cardinals, finches, humming birds, etc. I even spotted a rare cockaded redheaded woodpecker.
