Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our 11-day stay in your cabin in Murphy. We found the cabin to be fully equipped, and very usable for Linda to cook several times for our whole family, including those living in Murphy. It was comfortable living there for that long, well heated everywhere in the cabin, and was easy to decorate for Christmas for family get-togethers there. And, it was only about 4 miles from their home on Bunker Place, and also to their church… the location was perfect. The view from your big windows is great,…..we loved that. And, our Verizon cell service worked well there. Our daughter from CA has T-mobile and had limited signal access there, but she could use our cells just fine.

Your instructions were very helpful, including getting in the cabin, and then how to close up the cabin, as well. And, it was nice that you were so easily available, via email, during the process of renting the cabin and making payment arrangements.

We are already talking about doing this again next Christmas, so more on that later.

Thanks again for all your help in making this a memorable family Christmas!!!!!

Relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family truly enjoyed our stay at Lana's cabin. It was exactly what we needed! The cabin was well-appointed with everything we needed to cook all of our meals during the week. It's in a quiet location with plenty of beautiful views all around. There was a herd of deer that could be found foraging in the woods along the driveway in the morning.

We went trout fishing at Otter Creek Trout Farm, toured Walnut Hollow Cattle Ranch, drove to the top of Ball Mountain, visited Goldhagen Glass Studio, hiked to a fire tower, and stopped at our favorite local store, In with the Old. There are many things to do in and around Murphy for all ages and interests.

Cozy comfort :-)

  • 5 of 5

My family traveled north from South Florida to experience winter for about a week. We loved staying in this cabin, it was exactly like the photos. Everything was beautiful and we especially loved the fireplace in the evenings after venturing out during the day for the many sights and activities near by. Thank you Lana!!

Ideal setting to enjoy nature with gently sloping land to explore. And there's so much to do in the area: whitewater rafting, hiking, boating, swimming, picnicking, antique shopping, fishing, flea markets, sightseeing. Visit the Smoky Mountains, Helen GA, Cherokee reservation, Harrah's Casino, John C. Campbell Folk School, Biltmore mansion, Nantahala Forest, Ocoee River, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, or the beautiful Nottley Lake/Park. And just exploring the quaint town of Murphy with its shops, street-corner parks, and old-time theater is a treat.

Other Activities: white water rafting
