Guestbook comments from the owner
To start, your cabin is breath-taking; absolutely stunning! We immediately felt at home. Your delightful welcome package was much appreciated. The combination of the absolute cozy atmosphere, the amazing view, the nature to cure our souls was astounding. Being here just the first night- all,of us- the stress just MELTED AWAY! I want to thank you, in words that I cannot seem to being together, for how much this cabin, Bumble Bee Cabin, really has done for us so far in our stay here. This is truly super blurb :) Jess

BUMBLE BEE HIDE-A-WAY, MURPHY, NC

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Bumble Bee Hide-a-Way 6/21-6/26/2014. We love the cabin! It's perfect for a quiet get away. It's as charming as the pictures and description listed on the website. There are many places to see within driving distance but we preferred to stay close to the cabin and visit with friends in the area. We really enjoyed the hot tub most mornings during our stay. The owners, Cindy & Ken, are wonderful local people. They really know how to make you feel special.
This is the second time we have stayed there and hope to stay again year after year.

SUPER CUTE & COMFY!

Super cute & comfy!
  • 5 of 5
I loved this cabin. Located near everything, we did day trips everyday. White water rafting, waterfall car tour, blue ridge GA, Knoxville, downtown Murphy and more! The place is comfy and cute. And then with the hot tub for relaxing at night. Little fence for the dogs, it worked for my small dogs perfect. Upstairs loft has 2 twins, so we pushed them together for a king. I will def come here again.

COZY 5 DAY VISIT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5day stay. Hated to leave it is such a cozy cabin. Quiet scenery and great atmosphere to relax in . The cabin is well equipped nice area to site see and enjoyed local markets. Have visited all over United States and the people in Murphy are very friendly. Would love to visit . The owners are wonderful. Best advantage was no cell service at the cabin. Will definitely visit again and recommend it for a romantic quiet getaway.

QUIET, CALM GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Bumblee was a sweet little place to stay! Beautiful views, relaxing location.... A great place to get away from it all!

The owners were very hospitable, and left a lovely welcome gift, along with an impeccably clean, spacious cabin, and almost everything someone could need.

However, if I could have given 4.5 stars, I would have. The rain forced us inside ALL weekend, and a small couch and tiny TV made for restricted relaxation indoors.

I will say that the rainy weekend gave us an opportunity to re-connect, which I am grateful for.

Thank you again!!!

EXCELLENT STAY AT THE BUMBLEBEE HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at the bumble bee hideaway. We will be celebrating 22 years of marriage and decided to stay at this cabin. It was a wonderful week for the 2 of us. We enjoyed the hot tub, the amenities and the kindness of both Ken and Cindy. We got lost on our way. We called Ken and he guided us to his cabin. It is fenced in but there is a steep hill where it is not fenced so our doggies did decide to walk and run up the steep hill a few times. We saw chipmunks and squirrels and heard lots of cool noises in the night. We enjoyed the coolness of the weather and the leaves falling and the beautiful colors. We barbecued steaks on the grille and enjoyed eating, drinking a glass of wine at night and drinking our coffee in the morning on the patio.
The cabin had everything you needed and was very clean. We enjoyed going to the Cherohala Skyway, walking in the murphy river park and just doing a lot of sight seeing or just relaxing at the cabin. It was very comfortable and we felt like we were at home. We will definitely recommend this cabin to anyone who wants a relaxing getaway and will definitely come back. It was an exciting adventure!
