THANKSGIVING CELEBRATION

  • 5 of 5
Finding adequate words to share our wonderful family gathering experience in this beautiful home is difficult. Our expectations were more than realized for this home provided every detail to make our stay very enjoyable and comfortable. The surrounding area was delightful and interesting as there was much to see and do even in the late fall of the year.Especially appreciated was the warm and friendly interest of the owners . Our family will long remember, with much pleasure, our gathering at this charming place.

HOUSE THAT PAMPERS :)

  • 5 of 5
We had this reserved since it turned out cost efficient and fit the budget well for our group of 6. This house, however can comfortably fit a larger group. While we had a few doubts initially, we were pleasantly surprised when we entered the property.The drive up the fire road is challenging but the house was worth that trouble. The location or the house provides such amazing views, at every level.

The house was beautifully decorated, and I d want to appreciate the personal touch. Although we never had a chance to meet the Schulz family who own this, we are absolutely grateful for the effort that they had taken to make sure we got to enjoy our stay, in the most relaxed and comfortable way. And just as another reviewer has mentioned, the photos shown here do not do justice to the house. The rooms were beautifully decorated. The bathrooms were superbly spic and clean. I d want to commend their eye to detail. They even had extra pairs rafting sandals and wind-shielders for use and wear. The book collection was extensive, although we couldnt quite get to read much. 'Gone With the Wind' is one of my favorites and it was a delight to notice the book up on th shelf in the living room.

We arrived Saturday afternoon and had particularly chosen this location, thinking it would provide us an easy drive across the Nantahala Reserve park to the Smokies and also raft the Ocoee Upper. We had a made a reservation with WildRiverRating and it was surpise to find out that the house hardly few miles away from the location. The rafting experience was exhilarating and it helped to have the house so close, and not have to dirty the car. We also chose to cook that evening's dinner at the house, and the kitchen had just about everything that we would need. The front porch at the living room level has a swing and we had some amazing portrait photos taken at the porch which received abundant natural light. The sun set view was breathtakingly beautiful.We drove the next day to the smokies, and also visited the Nantahala lake. We left the monday morning after labour day.

I d have wished we had gotten to stay longer, but this was one of the best rental vacation houses I have been too. I d be delighted to recommend that this was a five star experience we had at the house, that left us absolutely pampered.

We really enjoyed our stay and it is perfect for a large family with sleeping rooms on 3 levels. The Master bedroom is beautiful with its own deck, large bath and georgeous view. The ground floor has a beautiful deck with an unbelievable view of the mountains. The bottom floor is perfect for kids with bunk beds and double beds and a ping pong table. The house, the area, the view and the way it is furnished are beautiful. We went rafting on the Nantahala and the Ocoee nearby, tubing at nearby McCaysville, rented a pontoon boat on the Hiwasssee Lake and went to the Mountain Fair at Hiwassee, Ga. There are many other things to do-we just ran out of time. We enjoyed Herb's nearby and Downtown Pizza and Doyles Restaurant in Murphy. We had no suggestions for improvement for the owner. Everthing was great and we really enjoyed our vacation.

WOW! This home was more beautiful than what you could see in the pictures! What beautiful views too! We felt right at home with ALL of the amenities. It was also right off of a main highway, which made it easy to go explore during the day. At night we would put the kids to bed in the "kids" room and have dinner by candelight on the back porch watching the sun go down! All of us had a great time and we look forward to going back. We would recommend this home to EVERYONE!!

We have been bringing a group to the mountains for over twenty years, and staying at the Murphy House was our best experience yet! The house was large enough for each family to have their own space , but still felt "homey". The view was beautiful, and we all looked forward each morning to having our coffee or hot chocolate on our own deck. We have already made our reservation for this fall, and even the kids are excited about coming back. Thanks for sharing your home and allowing us to have a wonderful vacation memory! The Whites
