Relax in a darling chalet type park model with 6 acres of mountains to climb (in back of dwelling)(2 acres of flat land and creek in front of dwelling) or swim in creek with secluded area to relax (it's cold!). Fish in creek that has been stocked with rainbow trout. The town of Murphy is close by for shopping, antiquing or visit the John Campbell Folk School to watch some of the old crafts demonstrated or attend classes. Bedroom is a queen/with a new serta mattress which is ,oh, so comfortable. There is a sofa bed provided. There is also a soft feather comforter in loft for children or maybe adventurous adults who would like to reconnect with their childhood... Loft overlooks kitchen/living room area.

I am employed by the nuclear industry and really enjoy going to our little spot of heaven in Murphy. The previous owner said her brother called this area 'the garden spot of the world'. He had traveled all over the world; but, considered this the most beautiful area. She was born and raised on the property and her father told of the Cherokee Indians living here before them and that the Cherokee indians washed their clothes on a flat rock in the creek. The rock is still there.
Jacqueline Hall purchased this chalet in 1994
I always wanted to live in the mountains of North Carolina....and found this beautiful vacation spot.
Relaxing on the creek with a cold one/ or if you dare get in the creek - the cold water is awesome!
Going to the Murphy area for the Labor Day weekend was a spontaneous decision, but a great one thanks to this getaway! It's every bit as charming as described, with very cozy and beautiful decor, extremely comfortable bedding, all the necessities, as well as pleasant perks, such as satellite and Wi-Fi.
The rental has beautiful surroundings; the field and the creek are both gorgeous, and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. I enjoy amateur astronomy and photography, and it was a great place for both; Friday night had clear weather, and the sky was quite breathtaking, as it's perfectly dark. During the day, the peace and quiet the location provides is such a relaxing break from being in the triad area.
Murphy is a short drive away, and even though the rental feels perfectly remote and relaxing, it takes no time at all to get groceries or whatever else you need. We miss it already, and will be sure to visit again as soon as we can.
This was an amazing place to stay. All the amenities of home were provided. There is enough area around to hike/walk and the creek across the property is very relaxing to listen to or have a picnic nearby. The stars at night were an amazing sight. There are many things to do in the area, mountains, hikes, gem mining, rafting, and Indian artifacts were all wonderful to experience.
I would recommend this to anyone.
This place was perfect for our vacation together! I am hesitant to write a good review because I don't want anyone to know about this little gem we found!!! We went towards the end of summer and the weather was wonderful every day. For our activities, we went horseback riding at Chunky Gal stables, whitewater rafting on the Ocoee (very satisfied with Rolling Thunder Co.), visited the John Campbell Folk School, and of course, explored around the area. We loved this place because although our activities were a bit of a drive, this was pretty central to all of them. The actual town was pretty close though, so gas, grocery, etc. was easy to get to. We hiked up the mountain behind the cabin, we spent time creek hiking in the creek across the field (yes, cold, but invigorating!), tried our hand at fishing but didn't catch anything, and enjoyed the heat during the day and the cool weather at night (since where we are from, it is hot all the time in the summer.) The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, plates, cups, etc. (we always do our own cooking on vacations to save money), the washer/dryer building was perfect, the living room comfortable, and the bed and bedroom cozy. The bathroom small but nice, too! We didn't really use the loft but it would be great for some kiddos and just seemed fun. Our dog loved running across the field to and from the house to the creek as we explored the area. What a view to wake up to in the morning! Our only complaint - we couldn't find any tongs in the kitchen :) We can't wait to go back next summer!!!!
The property was just like description, real clean and nice. Very close to many sightseeing areas. Went at a dry time so stream was low but still caught fish. Deer and turkey out front door ,once even right at house. Only one complaint , wish front porch had been bigger so we could have sat on it. If looking for a quite get away this is it. Homeowner was very nice and answered any questions we had.
We planned to attend a family reunion at Bear Paw (near the Hiwassee dam) and couldn't get a cabin there as they were all booked. We didn't want to drive back and forth from Murphy where the nearest hotels were as it's a 30 minute drive each way.
A friend told me about VRBO,com and I found this cabin which is only 7 miles from Bear Paw.
The rate was less than a motel but was about the same when the cleaning fee is figured in. Still a better deal since it includes a full kitchen and you don't have noisy neighbors.
The location is close to the main road, and yet secluded enough that we saw several deer and some wild turkeys.
Though technically not a cabin, it had a cabin feel about it and is clean and neat.
The ceiling in the shower is a little low if you're 6 foot or more. The water is SOFT so don't use a lot of soap!
Jacqueline was very prompt in returning our security deposit.
Will definitely consider renting again and would recommend this without hesitation.
Just goes to show you that Good Things Do Come in Small Packages. Has everything you need,is well kept & clean, & the owner is great to work with.
