Murphy Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Creekside Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
Escape to the tranquility of this unique, two bedroom, two bath cabin on a large rushing trout stream (stocked by TVA)! (Sorry, no Smoking inside cabin.)
You can fish for trout, splash in the creek and pan for gold -- all in your own back yard! You will enjoy the sandy walkway along the creek and the shallow 'beach' area where smaller ones can also enjoy the water. Laze away the hours in the hammock under the shade trees or spend time relaxing in the hot tub while enjoying the soothing sounds of the creek. Sit around a camp fire and roast marshmellows over the fire pit by the creek. Top off the day with a close-up view of the heavens (telescope on site). Enjoy a relaxing weekend getaway, a romantic retreat, or a fun-filled, action-packed vacation.
You will be just minutes away from the famous Tellico Mountains and close to both the Ocoee, the Nantahala and the Nottley Rivers and to several major lakes (Lake Chatuge, Lake Hiawasee, Lake Ocoee, Apalachia Lake, and Lake Santeetlah). You'll be able to enjoy Whitewater Rafting, Kayaking, Tubing, Boating, Hiking, several Zip Lines in the area, Horseback Riding, Golf, and World-Class Motorcycling. Be sure to visit the famous John C. Campbell Folk School (weekly events during the Summer), go Antique Shopping or take a trip on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. You'll be just 2 hours or less from Atlanta GA (world-famous Georgia Acquarium), Chattanooga TN, Knoxville TN, Franklin NC, Ashville NC (Biltmore Estate), Cherokee, NC, (Cherokee Indian Reservation, Museum, Shoping and Casinos), Gatlinburg TN and Pigeon Forge TN (home of Dollywood).
(Need a larger cabin or more than one cabin? Ask about our 'sister cabin', available for special groups and family reunions.)
Our cabin is a great place for a Winter retreat. We get frequent snowfalls (2 to 3 inches) and roads to the cabin are well maintained during the winter months.
Come relax and enjoy -- 'you won't want to go home!'

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you for sharing your charming cabin with us and further aiding in fond memories of our time here in North Carolina this Christmas break! The cabin was perfect for the four of us and its warm touches are indicative of the kind people you are. Some highlights of our vacation included making hot dogs and smores over the campfire, the hot tub, seeing cows across the stream, seeing/hiking the waterfall nearby, a snowball fight, playing games and watching movies by the fire, Blue Ridge Scenic Railway Trip, Scaly Mountain, Dillard House, and Horseback Riding at Chunky Gals Stables – highly recommended!
Hope to be back, all the best to you and your family -- Orlando, FL
Murphy is close to many areas of interest and is easily accessible year-round by auto, private plane or motorcycle. This beautiful, peaceful area, situated in the Nantahala Region of Appalachia, is unique in its rich history, serenity and beauty. This area is a well-kept secret and a very special place to visit.
You can dig your own worms and enjoy Trout fishing in the back yard (waders and fishing equipment at cabin). Grill your catch just feet away from the creek and eat your catch on the covered deck next to the creek. Then relax in the large hot tub by the creek or sit around a camp-fire and roast marshmallows. Kids can splash in the creek and pan for gold (supplies available at cabin).
