Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed 4 nights and wished we booked for the whole week. We ventured to Blue Ridge, Highlands, Dieland and Deelard House for lunch. The cabin was very comfortable, clean and quiet. We did not lack anything. We will return here again. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us.

So Beautiful and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Haven in the Hills. The cabin was well organized and spotless. Judy made sure we had everything we needed and was always just a phone call away.
The location is perfect...Murphy is centrally located. You can travel in any direction and find interesting things to do. Judy prepared a binder that lists restaurants, shopping, places to visit. This was extremely helpful.
It was wonderful to sit on the deck and sketch the beautiful trees and sunsets.
Each day's sunset was different. My husband enjoyed feeding and identifying the birds.
We had such a relaxing week at the cabin, we can't wait to go back!

So Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved Haven in the Hills. It is one of the most beautiful places we have stayed at. Judy was so accommodating. She told us restaurants to go to places to visit. The cabin was well organized, spotless and had everything we needed. Judy treated us just like family. Murphy is centrally located for visiting Western NC. You can travel in any direction and visit many different attractions, shopping and wonderful vistas. Judy has prepared a binder listing restaurants and attractions in the area. We found this binder to be extremely helpful. She was always just a phone call away if we needed any info.
I highly recommend this gorgeous cabin!

Beautiful-inside and out!

  • 5 of 5
Wow...what a beautiful home, Judy and her husband shared with me. Went to Murphy on a personal quest to spread my mothers ashes in the family burial grounds. Wish I could have stayed longer. Judy was the kindest, most caring VRBO member I have ever been in touch with. You will love this cabin....it's like home! Without a doubt, the most reasonable rates in Murphy.

Pure Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Haven in the Hills is beautifully appointed with every possible detail attended to. We needed or wanted for nothing in this gorgeous cabin. You couldn't ask for more by way of a comfortable and elegantly decorated cabin. So much love and pride from owners who care about beauty and comfort in their mountain home shows inside and out. The views are fantastic from the deck to sit back an just relax and enjoy. Judy is without a doubt the kindest and most caring owner I have had the pleasure of getting to know. From e-mails and talking to her on the phone she truly cares about the people who have the pleasure of sharing their home away from home. We can't wait to return to Haven in the Hills for another relaxing getaway.

Marvelous Misty Mountain Mornings!

  • 5 of 5
The only problem with reviewing Haven in the Hills is that, if everyone finds out how wonderful it is, it'll be booked solid for the next two years straight and we won't be able to return!

Haven in the Hills is the most comfortable, clean, and pleasant place we have ever stayed. The amenities are first class. The kitchen is well organized and well supplied. The master bedroom has an extremely comfortable king size bed. The walk-in shower in the en suite bath could easily fit two. The living room is spacious and attractive. There are several large windows and glass doors in the front of the cabin. You can view the lovely Smoky Mountains without ever leaving the house - but why would you want to? The wrap-around front porch with its numerous rocking chairs is a perfect place for reading, bird watching, deer-spotting (there's a lovely doe who hangs out at the bottom of the yard), and mountain gazing. Early in the crisp autumn mornings, the clouds settle down over the valley in a soft, moist blanket that's a perfect accompaniment to a morning cup of tea, and by the time you're ready to go out, drift away leaving nothing but blue skies and soft breezes.

We spent several afternoons hiking near the John C. Campbell Folk School, which is open to visitors and is a fascinating treasure from one end to the other. The studios in Brasstown are engrossing. Be sure to visit Gallery 26 in Murphy - and bring a biscuit for Milo! Don't miss the great trail rides at Chunky Gal Stables in Hayesville, which has a dozen different mountain trails and a barn full of beautiful horses. After riding, have lunch at the Best Lil Corner, an old-fashioned soda joint with great burgers and malts. If you're looking for dinner, skip all the usual dreary fast food on the outskirts of Murphy and head over to ShoeBooties, Murphy's, or Doyles. Or skip the restaurant scene entirely and have your steak and baked potatoes at Haven in the Hills - the ambiance is fantastic, and you don't need to tip your waiter!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Haven in the Hills. The cabin had everything we needed and was very clean and well maintained. It was home away from home. We were in Murphy for a family birthday party and had with us our 2 grown kids with their wives and child, we had plenty room. After a full day it was heaven to come to the cottage and sit on the porch and rest. The directions provided were very accurate. Do not trust Suri! While there we took walks and visited the John C Campbell Folk School.
I would highly recommend Haven in the Hills! Thank you Judy!!!
