About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-4)

This two bedroom, two bath, hand hewn log cabin is suspended in the air over a large rushing creek. Located 15 miles from Murphy, the cabin offers the best in quiet luxurious living. From the plush bedding to the jetted tub to the Hot Springs hot tub on the lower deck, you may not want to ever leave.

A large stacked rock fireplace creates a warm environment during cooler weather. The upstairs deck is perfect for morning coffee and evening wine. The cabin overlooks Beaverdam Creek, long known to locals as one of the best areas to flyfish for Rainbows. There are steps to the creek that makes it easy to enjoy swimming and fishing.

The cabin is in Vineyard Creek, a small private log cabin development that includes an actual working vineyard and a common area on Beaverdam Creek There's no golf course, no tennis courts, or a lot of other people. There are wild turkeys, hummingbirds, and an occasional shy deer. Boating on Lake Hiawassee is a beautiful way to view the surrounding mountains. Shook's marina, five miles from the cabin, offers boat rentals. Grocery stores are 30 minutes away, so plan accordingly.

Cabin is exactly as stated

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is exactly as stated in the description. It is very much off of the beaten path. You definitely need to bring what you need with you or you can make a stop in Murphy at the stores there for what you need to take in. You need to take everything with you down to the river also because there are quite a few steps. We got a definite work out going up and down the steps. The hot tub is located under the cabin so you have a good view of the under carriage of the cabin. The jets in the tub in the downstairs bathroom do not work and there is a combination for getting the water set for the upstairs shower. The directions for operating the shower are sitting on the cabinet in the upstairs bathroom. There is a clock downstairs that has different bird calls every hour day and night. The housekeeper was still there when we arrived and we arrived at the exact time for check in. This seems to be a standard practice for her because I have read other reviews where she was present. This time of year they drain the lake down so the marinas looked empty and boats and piers were sitting on the ground.

We stayed October 1-6 and it is a beautiful cabin. We had so much fun during our stay. We fished, made fires for hot dogs and Smores. The jacuzzi was so relaxing & listening to the river too. The rode to the cabin is scary but once you get there it's worth it. I would recommend a truck rather than a car though. I would recommend it highly. Patricia K.

Relaxing retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained cabin in the woods. The sound of the creek was very peaceful. The steps to/from the creek provided a workout. The jacuzzi was relaxing.

BEST trip in my entire life!

  • 5 of 5

I asked my girlfriend to marry me While staying at this cabin this past weekend. We went hiking and enjoyed the beautiful mountains, streams, waterfalls and all the amazing aspects of the environment. We hiked about 3 miles into the woods following along a stream on unmarked trail. I found a beautiful rock area and asked her to "have lunch and swim in the pool" she agreed and we went down the 45 degree angled mountain terrain probably 20 feet below. There I asked the most important question of my life and I'm so glad to have been in this perfect cabin! It really set the mood for our entire life. Thank you Susan! For all the great help you were and also thank the cleaning attendant, we showed up a few hours early and she was there. She actually was so helpful she went back to her houses and returned wit books and maps about the day hikes even providing her personal books for our adventures, not to mention some of her chickens eggs from her farm. The trip was more than I could have ever dreamed and had such a great stay at this beautiful log cabin.
