Murphy Lodge Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms + bunkroom, 3 baths, Hot Tub, Pool Table, Fire Pit
Majestic Creation is a ridge top Mountain Home centrally located between Blue Ridge, Murphy, NC, and Blairsville. We are confident you will not find a more spectacular view in the North Georgia Mountains. It inspires peacefulness and relaxation. Brand new to the rental market.
We decorated the home to have a private lodge feel. It has two large master suites -- one on the main level and one upstairs in the loft area – and a separate bedroom with two twin beds in the basement. Each master suite includes a semi-private, enormous bathroom. The basement bathroom was completed in stone, including the stone shower. Wi-Fi is available and Dish Network provides television, but why watch TV when you can sit on the rocking chair and soak in the view?
The main level bedroom has a king bed and direct access to the middle deck and breathtaking mountain views. The main level bathroom has a shower and separate Jacuzzi tub with a single vanity and a laundry room with washer and dryer.
Also located on the main level is the kitchen with granite counters, open dining area with a hand-made dining table, Old Hickory chairs, and a bar area. Total seating for 8. The open main area includes the family relaxing room with a vaulted ceiling and floor to ceiling windows so that you are never denied the miles of mountain views. Our six foot wide Elk overlooks the stone wood fireplace. He is flanked to his left by one of the few mounted black bears you will find anywhere in Georgia (she was legally taken in Maine). Our mounted Bison hangs on the wall above the stairway to the loft, completing our family room trio of Majestic animals. Off the main-level family room is an outdoor wood fireplace with a gas grill and picnic table.
Two beautiful mounted fowls are above the Elk, leading to the loft area where a large-mouth bass overlooks our family movie area and a hungry bobcat tries to disrupt the quails' nest in the corner. There is a 55 inch flat-panel HD television, leather sofa and loveseat, and a writing desk.
The loft bedroom contains a king bed and a private deck, which -- at just over 2200 feet in elevation -- claims the best views south toward Lake Nottely and the Georgia mountains. The loft bathroom has dual shower heads in a tiled shower and a double-vanity.
The basement was finished in July 2013 to add a pool table area with a vented gas stone fireplace. The pool table was custom-made to fit the rustic, lodge theme. A separate television sits on the mantel and is flanked by a mounted black bear (also taken in Maine) and a large, South Georgia mounted beaver. A queen sleeper sofa is located in the basement. A wet bar, game table, and cozy bunk bed nook (under the staircase) complete the family fun area. A separate bedroom with two twin log beds is located in the basement along with a full bath with a stone shower.
A separate lower deck can be accessed from the pool table room and from the basement bedroom. The lower deck boasts a 6 person Hot Springs Vanguard Hot Tub with jets so strong you’ll think you just paid for a professional massage. Just 4 steps off the deck and just below the Hot Tub is a stone fire-pit with rustic wood benches for roasting.
Our mountaintop getaway will sleep 10, but there is a MAXIMUM of 6 adults allowed per rental. It is decorated as a mountain lodge with custom-made furniture on every level. Triple decks, 3 fireplaces and a fire-pit, a hot tub, Wi-Fi throughout -- we like to think of it as “roughing-it” in luxury.

We live in metro Atlanta, but fell in love with visiting the North Georgia mountains for vacation the last 5 years. Number one on our list was always view, followed by luxury. We wanted to escape to somewhere nicer than were we lived, place we would be talking about for years afterwards. So when we decided we wanted to purchase our own mountain getaway, we decided to make it into what we believed would be the perfect vacation spot. Beautiful view, lodge-like luxurious furnishings, plenty of space, fire-pit, hot-tub, family gathering areas for movies and games -- we put it all into this home. We also loved the wildlife theme we saw in some cabins we rented. So, we went out and gathered some of the most unique animal mounts you will find, from our Elk and Bison to our Black Bears, Beaver and Fowl. And if you can never really be unplugged, we have that covered to with Wi-Fi and Dish network. We love this place and believe our guests will as well.

Why Kevin chose Murphy
We viewed around 20 properties in the winter of 2013 and fell in love with this one as soon as we saw the first photo of the view on Zillow. We called our agent, saw it the next day and knew that it would be hard for any other property to match the standard set by this, which we took to calling 'Majestic Creation'. The bonus was an unfinished basement, which allowed us to add our own finishing touches to make this our perfect mountain retreat.
What makes this lodge unique
The view, the view, and the view. Three levels of decks, a neighborhood at the top of the ridge line with only six homes (a seventh under construction). Centrally located in a triangle created by Blue Ridge, Blairsville, and Murphy, NC. Hiking, horseback riding, shopping, lake sports, hunting, and eating are all convenient to our mountaintop escape.
