About Jacqueline Hall

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

Why Jacqueline Hall chose Murphy

I had always wanted to live in the mountains of North Carolina....and found this beautiful vacation spot.

What makes this chalet unique

Relaxing on the creek with a cold one/ or if you dare get in the creek - the cold water is awesome!

Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5
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.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind response! Yes, the entrance area is small; but, it is exactly as shown in the pictures on the vrbo website! There is plenty of space at the creek to sit and unwind! We have a nice picnic table with benches on the bank, where you may also use the fire pit. There are lounge chairs (if you prefer to use them) kept in the laundry room. I am so glad that you liked our little cabin and that you caught a fish in the creek! We invite you to come often!

Great value!

  • 5 of 5
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.

A Cozy Spot!

  • 5 of 5
This small, but cozy, place is nestled at the base of a mountain/hill and near a running stream, a few miles outside of Murphy. It had virtually everything my wife and I (plus our springer spaniel) needed, in an economical fashion! The bed (I think it's now a Sealy) was darn comfortable, as was the couch in the main living area. Cooling (two units) and heating worked fine, as did the satellite TV (with soft music channels lending to a relaxed atmosphere). We read the instructions and made sure not to inadvertently lock ourselves out (the sliding glass "front" door will do that if you don't pay attention), and this allowed us to do all we needed during our too-brief stay. We ventured into town each day and enjoyed what the nearby town of Murphy, NC had to offer, restaurant-wise (Doyle's has a Tiki bar with a nice view, and a great menu to boot), and wish we had visited the Chophouse sometime other than Sunday, when their kitchen offerings were limited. Coach's was fun in a very casual way, and a trip to the railroad depot was cool. One of the books at Jacqueline's discussed the history of the area (and NC mountains generally) and was a must read. Blue Ridge, Georgia is a bit further away, but will be a place to check out next time we visit. We may also spend a bit more time near the across the field from the rental - it was SO peaceful. But we still had a blast, and look forward to returning soon! [Note: our cell phones, served by AT&T, did not work until we drove some distance away, and while we didn't mind that a bit, others may wish to look harder for service nearby, assuming their carrier has the same problem].

Great Place For A Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect for day trips to see Hiwassee Dam, Apalachia Lake, Joe Brown Highway, and several antique stores in SE TN and northern GA. Having the wi-fi available was welcome. We also tried panning for gold in Persimmon Creek, but all we found was black sand. One suggestion: add some stepping stones to the front door. Walking through the wet grass in the mornings causes lots of grass and dirt to be tracked in. We would certainly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting an affordable getaway.

Owner's Response: I want to thank you for the wonderful review. Sorry you didn't find any gold in Persimmon Creek! Thank you for the suggestion of stepping stones. I will certainly address that suggestion in the very near future. Again, thank you for being concerned with keeping the cabin clean for yourself and for future guests!

Our area is quiet and peaceful. Great food and service @ Rib Country. Decker's flea market close by. You may want to visit Sweetwater Valley Farms (in Tennessee) & Lost Sea Caverns or travel to Cherokee for a little gambling. Chunky Gal Stables in Hayesville is awesome, great rides and the guides are excellent. Sue's Burgers in Blue Ridge, GA has some of the best burgers ever!

If you enjoy fly fishing, the Nantahala River is a blue ribbon trout stream which is hatchery supported and holds rainbows, browns and brook trout up to 25 inches.

The Cherohala Skyway, is a beautiful drive that goes to heights over a mile high from Robbinsville to Tellico Plains with magnificent views and waterfalls all times of the year. Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest is close by and worth the trip.

There are many golf courses, hiking and mountain biking trails, whitewater rafting and tubing, swimming, horseback riding and much more to enjoy while you are here.

There is an Alpine Village in Helen, Ga., and as I mentioned earlier, John C. Campbell Folk School, in Brasstown. Fields of the Wood Biblical Park is close by, and our quaint downtown has a 50's style movie theater for your enjoyment. Our local shops shops feature a variety of antiques, museums and eateries.
