LUXURY CASTLE WITH LARGE HOT TUB AND SPECTACULAR MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Murphy Castle Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4

Maybe you just need to escape the city? Get away from it all? Clear your head? Maybe it's time to put a little romance back into your relationship? Or start a new relationship! You need to spend some time with a special person, and no one else. Just the two of you... Solitude... Privacy... Intimacy... Seclusion... Passion... Romance. Why not step back to a time when dragons were slain, castles were defended, and romance ruled? A time when knights defended their lady's honor and jousting was the norm.

Why settle for a hotel room... with their crowds and paper-thin walls? Why compromise your privacy... sharing your time and each other with guests of a bed & breakfast? Why settle for a cabin or cottage... when you can have your own intimate, luxurious castle to share with that special someone?

The perfect honeymoon, anniversary, or romantic getaway... fit for a king or queen. Make her your Princess. Make him your Prince. It is all yours to enjoy however you like!

After exploring our nature trails, shopping, or after visiting the many local shops and activities in and around Murphy, NC and Blairsville, GA... it's time to return to your castle to relax. Or... maybe you are just arriving for your castle stay and need to unwind a bit after your drive? In any case... it's hot tub time.

You'll love soaking in your private, outdoor hot tub, atop the castle turret. Once you are totally relaxed and feeling really pampered, it's time to dry off with our thirsty cotton bath towels. Wrap yourself in the terrycloth bathrobes provided to our guests, and enter your suite through one of the three sets of French doors leading from the castle terrace. Turn on the stereo, light a few candles, and if it's cold outside, cuddle in front of the fireplace with that special someone, as you share a bottle of Champagne. From there, the evening can just get better.

And in the morning... As Lady Pillsbury once said, 'nothing says lovin' like something from the oven'. Surprise your special person with breakfast in bed... made by you in the fully-equipped kitchen. You will find everything you might need... from wine glasses, to an ice cream scoop, to a fully-stocked spice rack.

And what lies ahead after you've enjoyed a leisurely breakfast together... Relax in a rocker on your private terrace over-looking the hills, gardens, and Brave Heart Pond. Read a book. Soak in the master-bath Jacuzzi tub. Play a game of cards, chess, or other board game. Take a walk on the nature trail.

Spend some 'private time' sitting down beside 'Brave Heart Pond'. Try counting the many gold fish and koi. Or... just listen to the birds, bees, and, to borrow a tune from Simon and Garfunkel, 'the sound of silence'. And maybe, if you listen really hard... and have a good imagination... you might hear a distant piper playing a favorite tune on his bagpipes.

And to help you get into the Scottish Woods mood... each guest receives a free compact disc on which we've recorded some of our favorite Celtic music to enjoy while you're here. And if you like it... take it home with you as a memento of your stay at the castle... with our compliments.

We respect the privacy of our guests. And our gated entry guarantees seclusion and protection from the outside world. Yet we're only 12 miles from the Super Wal-Mart in Murphy, NC. and other food stores and restaurants are even closer.

BEAUTIFUL CASTLE ADVENTURE!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 8 nights at Castle McKenzie and absolutely loved it! It was majestic yet so warm and homey! The grounds are fantastic and I imagine they're even more stunning in spring and fall when the trees aren't bare. Even in the cold wintery weather, we had visits from deers and wild turkeys right on the property. The covered hot tub was a great respite from the cold, and the indoor fireplace was also very nice. The decorative details are marvelous and every day we discovered something new. Highly recommend this little piece of Scotland in the mountains!
