Lake Chatuge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft with sofa bed, 2 Baths, and 1 cot (Sleeps 5-6)

This cozy Cabin has great lodge-style design and decor. It sits on two acre's of wooded property and is secluded but with easy access. While sitting on the very large deck you will enjoy long range views of the Nantahala and Smoky Mountains plus the beautiful Hiawasse River running below. Listen to the water flowing in the river below and the birds singing in the trees while you enjoy the spectacular sunsets over the mountains in the distance.

In the living room and dining area the entire wall is glass and the open ceiling spans 25 feet high so you can experience the magnificent view from inside as well as out on the deck. Also,on the ground floor there is a bedroom, bath, and laundry room.

Above the kitchen is a small loft area with a love seat where you can relax with a good book or just bask in the view. The master bedroom and bath are upstairs with the loft and it has french doors that open onto a balcony which overlooks the surrounding woods. Direct TV is provided for the master bedroom as well as the living room for your enjoyment.

This cabin is located 9 miles East of Murphy,NC, 10 miles from Hiawasse, GA., and only 2 hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Ashville, and Knoxville. Lake Chatuge is minutes away, white water rafting is available on the Nantahala River and there are many beautiful water falls in the area. Hiking, horseback riding, and fishing are enjoyed throughout the region.

About Russ or Pam

WE are both retired and enjoy visiting the mountains of North Carolina to escape the heat and humidity of Florida in the summer. My husband likes fly fishing and we both love visiting the many beautiful waterfalls in the area.

Russ or Pam purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Russ or Pam chose Lake Chatuge

Our son recommended the area to us. During our first visit we fell in love and purchased the property that the cabin is on today. The cabin is centrally located between Atlanta,Chattanooga,Knoxville,and Ashville so has great accessibility to many visitors.

What makes this cabin unique

The awesome long range mountain view from our deck is the best available in all of Clay County as stated by the locals. We also offer a wonderful view of the Hiawassee River that runs along the property. While sitting on the deck you can enjoy the sun setting over the mountains, listen to the river rushing by below, and the birds singing in the trees. If you are looking for a place for relaxation then our cabin is right for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I really enjoyed this rental. My family has rented cabins quite a few times for a more relaxed vacation, and so I have seen many of them. Most of the time, I look at the pictures and have to remind myself that the view probably isn't quite that good, accomodations aren't quite as nice as portrayed, etc. When we arrived at Hibernation Ridge, I was very happy to be in a place that was actually better than the pictures showed. My one and only complaint is that I wish the hot water had been on before we arrived. We got to the cabin later in the day after a long drive, and it would have been nice to have a hot shower as soon as w got there. All in all, though, it was a great trip, and I would definitely go back given the chance. I would definitely recommend this to a couple or small family as a great getaway spot.

Secluded and scenic!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin for a weekend getaway with our two children. We absolutely loved it and will come again. It was super clean and way past our expectations. We can't wait to come again! Our daughter was out on the deck with her sketchbook trying to capture the scenic view before we had even unpacked. There was absolutely nothing that was negative about our stay.

Beautiful Hibernation Ridge

  • 5 of 5

Two couples spent the weekend at Hibernation Ridge - it was fabulous. The setting is beautiful, the cabin extremely well stocked, clean, decorated nicely and well built. Great layout too. The location is halfway between Murphy and Hayesville which was most convenient. Loved it - thanks for sharing your cabin. War Eagle!

Great Get Away Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The views are spectacular, and the cabin is decorated so that you feel like you are at home......cozy and everything you might need is at your fingertips. We loved exploring the mountain towns during the day, and coming home to watch the sunset from the deck, and relax in front of the fireplace. This cabin is clean and very private. Would recommend to anyone who wants to get away, relax, and refresh. Thanks for sharing!
