Our home was completed in October 2003. The first time we drove up the driveway the view actually took our breath away. The chalet is tucked away on the mountain where you feel like you are hours from town, with the luxury of town being only ten minutes away. You can relax on the deck in rocking chairs or in the hot tub and enjoy the views for hours.
The nearby forests are spectacular. Within 30 minutes, you can be whitewater rafting down the nationally known Nantahala River. There is also plenty of boating and fishing available at several nearby lakes and trout streams. If hiking, biking, or horseback riding sounds like more fun, we have miles of state and national forest trails and land in Murphy.
Within a one-to-two-hour drive, you could be in Dollywood, Atlanta, Pigeon Forge, Chattanooga, the Cherokee Reservation Casinos, or Museum, Highlands, or Asheville.
Our home would make a wonderful romantic getaway for honeymooners or anniversaries. It also is wonderful for families as big as eight. We regularly stay there with two families of four without feeling crowded. The upstairs master bedroom is called the "bear room." It has a king-sized bed, private bath, and a private deck. The downstairs bedroom has a queen-sized bed and French doors leading to the wraparound deck. There are two futon sleeper sofas, with innerspring mattresses as comfortable as your bed at home. One is located in the upstairs loft area and the second in the family room.
