Overview

Murphy Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Situated on the beautiful Nottely River, you will find our cabin a relaxing escape. The cabin offers privacy with spectacular views of the Nantahala National Forest and the river. It is located at the end of the road on the river and abuts the forest. The 2 mile drive back to the cabin through the canopy of trees is something you'll remember and enjoy.

Views from the wrap-around screened porch are beautiful. Open the french doors in the master bedroom for the relaxing sounds of the river at night and great views during the day. Evenings by the campfire can produce some very fun and memorable moments. You can also step off the bank and test your skills in the river that is home to a variety of fish including browns, rainbows and native brookies. You'll be amazed at the pristine setting and you will likely be the only person(s) on the river.

For those who enjoy a more active vacation, there's golfing, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, boating, horseback riding, hiking trails, mountain biking trails, and ATV trails, all within a few minutes drive of this quiet retreat on the river. You can put your kayak in up river from the cabin on the 'release' and enjoy a fun 20 minute ride back to the cabin, or just tube the river when not on the release and enjoy an hour and a half ride back to the cabin.

It’s secluded, yet convenient. Although we’re at the 'end of the road', it’s only a short ten to fifteen minute drive to Murphy, the center of everything in this part of Western North Carolina! Located between the Ocoee River in Tennessee, and the Nantahala River in North Carolina where whitewater Olympic contenders have trained. Here you will find a town reminiscent of days gone by with a very walkable main street with enough cafes, restaurants, and shops to keep you interested. Side-by-side flea markets close by on weekends, a flea market in the city on Tuesdays, and even a downtown farmers market on Saturdays. This is just a beautiful area to travel the back roads and create your own adventure!

Drive the Cherohala Skyway (rivals the Blue Ridge Parkway for unobstructed long-range views). Ride the 'Tail of the Dragon' through Deal's Gap. Visit the Joyce Kilmore Memorial Forest or the John Campbell Folk School for classes in folk art, crafts, contra-dancing, blacksmithing, bluegrass music, etc. Or just take a drive through a country-side replete with post card views.

Daytrips: Blue Ridge, Georgia has wonderful downtown shops and you must visit the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant for a wonderful meal.

Ellijay, Georgia - is the Apple Capital of Georgia - travel along Highway 52 to visit apple barns. Close by is Amicalola Falls - 729 feet of waterfalls, the largest east of the Mississippi.

Dahlonega, Georgia - has shopping at its best and home of The Smith House - a family-style restaurant that is awesome!

Cherokee, North Carolina - has the casino and you can trout fish on the Cherokee reservation land for a nominal price.

Asheville, North Carolina - home of The Biltmore House that is a must see!

Bryson City, North Carolina - Make reservations through Great Smoky Mountain Railroad for a beautiful trip along the Nantahala River and visit the River's End Restaurant for great food.

Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee - visit Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, as well as many outlet stores. Gatlinburg has the seven mile loop full of craft stores.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful time we had. My daughter came up on Sunday and they all went white water rafting and had a nice dinner together. The whole family played in the river just deep enough for kayak but safe for my son to kayak around. The neighbors dogs Murphy and Lady came daily for a treat and we all rode the ATV on the trails. It was a great relaxing weekend. Your home is perfect at the end of the street very secluded.

Thanks for the relaxing weekend, my husband and I desperately needed!

Serenity by the River

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the River Retreat was just wonderful. We found the cabin to be cozy and most comfortable. It was very well equipped and we could think of nothing that was neglected. We did enjoy many of the places we visited in the surrounding area but the real attraction was right at our footsteps which was the river. When at its lower levels, it was comforting and mesmerizing. We enjoyed watching it rise during the releases of which there were several durng the week. At its high point it was a completely different river, just fascinating. We also enjoyed watching the local wildlife...geese, ducks, deer, etc.

Brantz, the owner was a delight to work with and most helpful. We met some friendly and pleasant neighbors inclluding Bentley the friendly Golden Retreiver who made frequent visits.

Of the dozens of cabins or cabins we've stayed in over 40 years from Canada to the Florida keys, we both agreed this was our favorite setting. Can't think of a single negative.

Serenity In the Mountains

  • 5 of 5
I could not possibly find a better location for relaxation. The constant melody of the shallow Nottely River along with the peaceful silence of the mountains provide the most relaxing atmosphere possible. The immaculately clean cabin along with everything anyone could possibly want provide the perfect vacation. I highly recommend this property and the owners.

Nice on the Nottely

  • 4 of 5
My wife & I enjoyed our stay at the Nottely River Retreat last week. The cabin is just as advertised and the owner was very helpful. It is very peaceful and quite in a rather remote area on the river and yet quite convenient to Murphy and the surrounding area. My wife commented more than once that the cabin was very clean and well-maintained and that the owners had obviously done some things to improve the appearance and comfort. Several years ago we owned a weekend/vacation home just up the road from this rental cabin and I had visited the previous owners on a couple of occasions. One reason for returning to this specific area now after about a dozen years was to experience a sense of nostalgia and to remember a portion of the "good old days". We would certainly recommend this property to anyone seeking a comfortable getaway cabin located on the banks of a rushing river in the highlands of North Carolina. The fly fishing (only had one day to experience due to extreme weather and TVA generation) was only fair and the only disappointment of the trip. Anyone attempting to wade and fish the Nottely River should always check the TVA generation schedule on the TVA website and be aware of rising water!

Wonderful home, great owner.

  • 5 of 5
I rented this mountain home for the month of August and welcomed visitors from Seattle, Wisconsin, and Florida. I cannot think of a thing that the owner has overlooked in offering this home to visitors. He was most helpful with any questions I had and great to work with. The area offers so many beautiful views. We walked up 175 stairs to view Amicolola waterfall, absolutely breathtaking. Spent an afternoon in historic Dahlonega, Georgia, and one in Blue Ridge, many hours wandering the countryside, had ice cream at the No Name ice cream parlor, went to the site of a 1996 Olympics event, traveled the Cherohala Skyway, saw an awesome waterfall near Tellico Plains. I could go on and on but recommend that you experience this for yourself!! You will find the owner most accommodating and helpful and the house all it is advertised to be.

Total relaxation getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I took our granddaughter to this fabulous mountain home and we just had a blast. It was our granddaughter's first trip out of the state of Florida and she was in awe. The home was exceptionally clean and well stocked with kitchen wares, towels and blankets, games, movies, puzzles, etc.. The river was beautiful and the weather was just perfect. We would recommend this cabin/home to anyone who is in need of a peaceful, relaxing vacation.Thank you Brantz for being so helpful and kind.

Owner's Response: We are always pleased when guests enjoy our cabin as much as we do when we get to spend time there. It is truly our second home and sometimes we wish it was our first.
