Great Time in Murphy
Fantastic views and atmospere. Made trips to Chatanooga, TN to see Lookout Mtn. and Ruby Falls. Took scenic train ride on Blue Ridge Train. Walked Murphy River Walk. Made circular loop around Hawiassee and saw Hawiassee Dam. Made trip to see Sassafras Falls, but fell short because walk to falls was 3 mi.

Thank you Robbie for always being easy to reach. We didn't need anything, but it was good to know you were a text/phone call away. As far as the cabin goes, it is nestled in a wooded development. It felt private yet close to civilization. The kitchen was well stocked and included an automatic drip coffee maker as well as a Keurig. There were plenty of coffee choices and creamer. (Not the powdered stuff, thank goodness) The Weber grill was great!! Also, the hair dryer is good quality, didn't use it because I brought my own which happens to be the exact same model...lol We thought it was a nice touch to have pet blankets in a tote in the closet just incase your dog decides to chill on the couch. There were also 2 dog bowls available incase you forgot yours. We would stay here again when visiting the area. Thanks Again!
We are glad you found your stay at Some Place Else enjoyable and the cabin comfortable. Thank your informative review. We hope you come fora return visit.
