REAL LINCOLN LOG CABIN ON RUSHING CREEK

Murphy Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-4)

This two bedroom, two bath, hand hewn log cabin is suspended in the air over a large rushing creek. Located 15 miles from Murphy, the cabin offers the best in quiet luxurious living. From the plush bedding to the jetted tub to the Hot Springs hot tub on the lower deck, you may not want to ever leave.

A large stacked rock fireplace creates a warm environment during cooler weather. The upstairs deck is perfect for morning coffee and evening wine. The cabin overlooks Beaverdam Creek, long known to locals as one of the best areas to flyfish for Rainbows. There are steps to the creek that makes it easy to enjoy swimming and fishing.

The cabin is in Vineyard Creek, a small private log cabin development that includes an actual working vineyard, a common area on Beaverdam Creek, and a stocked pond that's fun to cane pole fish. There's no golf course, no tennis courts, or a lot of other people. There are wild turkeys, hummingbirds, and an occasional shy deer. Boating on Lake Hiawassee is a beautiful way to view the surrounding mountains. Shook's marina, five miles from the cabin, offers boat rentals. Grocery stores are 30 minutes away, so plan accordingly.

THE ON LINE PICTURES OF THE PLACE ARE ACCURATE.

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd stay in a month at Cabernet Cabin. The place is relaxing and homey, like the lake or mountain summer cottages I grew up with, but fitted out more like a home than those home ex front hand me downs filled cottage furnishings I remember. The access seems a bit daunting the first time you drive in, but is actually more worry than chore, but I would stil not do a snow season visit without 4WD and dandy tires. One older couple in the the community uses a golf cart to navigate around on the vineyard roads. The appliances were nice, and the Owner really strives to keep everything clean and well maintained. My son loved the hot tub after a day of fishing (I opted for the main bathtub's Jacuzzi vents for the same purpose). Speaking of the fishing, the stream at the cabin (along with several others in the area) can be treacherous to wade because of its rocky substrate, but others, of the 12 or so easily reached area streams are less taxing. We dined on fresh caught trout while we were there. The lake is quiet and not flooded with water skis and wave runners, and the town of Murphy sports a really top tier Walmart Supercenter and dining and other shopping locations enough to suit. Local produce and fresh farm eggs are available at country stores thruout the area. We cancelled a zip line plan about 45 minutes away because of a line of storms that moved thru, but that opportunity is always an option. Cell phones generally don't work in many parts of the area (including at the cabin), but the land line and the WiFi at the cabin do, and we were always able to stay in touch as much as we wanted with the "outside" via email. We definitely will book future stays at Cabernet Cabin.

INDESCRIBABLY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We love the Murphy area and try to get up that way at least 2-3 times a year, so we are fairly acquainted with the area and have been looking for the perfect spot to stay every time we go..... after many trials with other commercial properties we have found the perfect place. From the moment you pull up to the cabin, you can't help but feel relaxed. Very clean and absolutely everything you could possibly need.... even had starter logs for the fire place. I could not fathom the idea of staying any place else. The owner was top notch too in the way of sending the most accurate amd concise directions. We will be back, just next time it will be for a week. Thank you Terry

WONDERFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about this cabin or area! The cabin is delightful, was extremely clean, well maintained, and contained everything we could possible want/need. You could tell that a lot of thought went into the decor. After looking through the reviews and seeing that they were predominantly 5 stars, I took a chance. I'm glad I did. I have already recommended this cabin to friends and family. It was well worth the stay. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY.

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough about how great our stay at your cabin was. The living, cooking, sleeping spaces were so cabin-cozy and just right for our family. Our kids absolutely LOVED the creek and the hot tub and all of the places they could explore and play in, and, my wife and I enjoyed the quiet, peaceful setting of the creek-side cabin (even with the aforementioned children playing).

You feel like there is no one around for miles, though the neighbors are just around the bend, and when you do run into them, they are really nice (and helpful, too!)
There is no cell service on T-Mobile nor Verizon (probably no others either). My phone can switch to Wifi, so we were able to use the cabin's Wifi for phone service. It was about half DSL speed (at least when I checked it on testmy.net) satellite service, so the call or two that we DID have were kept short. (We were trying to get away, remember...)

We could have stayed a month. We didn't want to leave. Our whole family agreed that this is our favorite cabin stay yet. We'll just have to come back when it is actually enjoyable to slip into the creek and get wet, instead of freezing your foot/leg off (never got above 50deg - nice fireplace weather).

Oh, and I got some use out of my 4-wheel-drive that normally only sees use during the winter on icy paved roads! We arrived at night and found the cabin with ease, but there is one hill that would challenge all but granny-gear 4-low, so you should enter that way, and exit as Terry's sign points you to. My Garmin took me to the front door, too.

Thanks for the use of your amazing home-away-from-home!

RIGHT AT HOME

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was beautiful and clean. The view overlooking the creek was amazing. It's pretty far from town on a winding road, so make sure you get everything you need before you go out there. The owners had the cabin well stocked, too. We felt right at home there! Didn't wanna leave!
