Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed 4 nights and wished we booked for the whole week. We ventured to Blue Ridge, Highlands, Dieland and Deelard House for lunch. The cabin was very comfortable, clean and quiet. We did not lack anything. We will return here again. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us.

We rented this home for a 10 day period and enjoyed every minute. We found this as a very relaxing retreat and we are planning a return next year. The mountain views and wildlife were more than we expected. If peace and quiet and getting close to nature is what you are looking for then this is it.

Judy, thank you for sharing your home with us.

This was our second stay at Haven in the Hills and we will definitely be back! The accommodations are spectacular, the view from the house gorgeous! Watching the rain cascade over the mountains while sitting on the porch is relaxing. The paved drive up to the cabin made it easy to access even when trailering a Harley. And the hosts couldn't be nicer and are so warm and friendly. I would highly recommend this residence to others. Take time to relax, read a book, congregate at the fire pit, grill a steak, enjoy down time.

Well deserved and needed get-away

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best getaways we have had in a long while. The cabin was beautiful and well maintained with really nice furnishings. The cabin is secluded but also convenient to everything we wanted and needed. The owner was extremely nice and helpful and I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends and acquaintances. This place is convenient to the casino and also some of the best bar-b-que I've had. I'm looking forward to returning soon.

Perfect Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Haven in the Hills. The hosts had all the necessary amenities to make our stay comfortable and the views were beautiful! Once familiar with the access roads the location was easy to navigate to and from Murphy and surrounding areas.

Beautiful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

The property was a million times better than we could ever imagine. Everything Judy and Dan could think of was embedded into the cabin. It was like we had all the luxuries of being at home while still in a cabin in the mountains enjoying the peacefulness of what nature has to offer!! Loved it!! So did my 20 month old daughter!!

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is not your standard mountain rental!!! It is like staying at a friends house. Everything has been meticulously thought of and is in pristine condition. The view is great. Great location close to town and lakes. Paved roads. No need to question a stay here. Just do it!! Highly recommended.
