Murphy / Andrews Area Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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.

Had an amazing time at the cabin. Waking up to the peace and quiet with just the sound of nature and the beautiful scenery. Definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Clean, comfortable and secluded

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the cabin. Our grandson enjoyed fishing in the creek and it was nice sitting on the back deck watching the hummingbirds and listening to the rushing water below.

Relaxing, peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in the mountains. The cabin was beautiful and just what we needed. The cabin is fully stocked with everything but your own food to bring. We enjoyed making a fire, the creek, the hot tub, and very comfy beds. Although it is only about 10 miles from town, it does take about 30 minutes to drive due to windy roads. We also loved Murphy, the local town. We visited the local farmer's market, the Irish pub, the river walk, and an ice cream shop. We also rented a boat to cruise Lake Hiawassee which was beautiful. Thank you for an amazing weekend.

P.S. Driving there through the mountains of southeast Tennessee was an experience! If we come again, I would likely take a different route.

So peaceful! I did not want to go home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a peaceful and wonderful couple of days at this beautiful cabin. The sound of the river was so relaxing. The cabin had everything you would need. It is really out in the woods, which was great. The flowers were in bloom. The weather was perfect. You could not better couple of days. There were also hummingbirds coming to the feeders that they had on the porch. I wish I could have stayed forever. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone who wants to get away from everything and everyone. It is an interesting getting to cabin from Murphy but well worth it. You will not be sorry when you get. Thank you so much for letting us share your little bit of heaven.

Best cabin ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

Since we found this cabin we have not rented another. If you want complete privacy without a light in sight this one is for you. We come with all our food and never leave until we absolutely have to. Pretty good drive to any store so I suggest you do the same. Favorite spot is the back deck swing, could sit and listen to the river all day. If you a fitness buff the steps coming up from the river are a great workout. Clean and comfy as always, the perfect getaway with no cell service...just the way we like it. Thank you again for sharing this gem and we can't wait to come back.

Secluded and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several VRBO properties and this one was by far my favorite. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed and the seclusion was exactly what we were looking for. We spent a few "unplugged" days here and greatly enjoyed the sounds of nature. Coffee on the deck overlooking the rushing creek was the perfect start to each day. Friday we drove into Murphy and visited the downtown shops and had lunch. We spent all day Saturday down by the creek, relaxing on the deck. We really hated to leave and this cabin is on our list of properties to definitely visit again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to comment on your stay at our cabin. I think a blankie, the porch swing, the creek, and a cup of coffee on a cool mountain morning is about as good as life gets. Hope you are able to return again.
