Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Mountain Serenity, but won't be our last. We stay there when we are taking classes at the J. C. Campbell Folk School. The house is well maintained and in a beautiful location. The owners are great to work with.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Since 2001 we have stayed at many VRBO rentals and found this one to be one of the best. It is nice and roomy, decorated and furnished very comfortably--everything was clean and in good condition. It is centrally located for a lot of different activities and attractions. Murphy has a lot of good walking trails and some excellent restaurants. We spent 5 weeks at Mountain Serenity and would have liked to stay longer. Many days we didn't leave the cabin. We just sat on the deck and enjoyed the view and watched the hummingbirds, finches, etc. around the feeders. We hope we can come back next year.

Owner's Response: Bill and I are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We would also like to thank you for taking such good care of our chalet. The roses looked great! We look forward to hearing from you again. Bill & Heidi

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

First of let me say that the pictures don't do the house justice. I was so impressed by the feel of newness - like barely anyone stayed there. Hats off to the caretaker - doing an awesome job!!

The space including the bathrooms and garage are big :) Beds are comfortable.

The place is decorated with care and one really needs to look around to discover all the little fun things.

I spotted something different every day.

The location is on an average 30 mins to an hour to various destinations.

Highly recommend it!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. The chalet is more than a rental to us. We stay there frequently and hope to spend much more time there once we retire. Stephanie does a wonderful job, not just keeping the chalet clean but also making sure everything is in proper working order. Bill & Heidi

Our stay was beyond our expectations. The cabin was excellent, the views refreshing, and owner gracious. I do not know how it could have been better....oh, yes I can....to be there right now. Recharge your batteries, have coffee on the deck in the rocking chairs in the morning. Yes this is the cabin in the mountains you want. The amenities are more than you could ask for and the area beautiful.

Owner's Response: That is exactly how Bill and I feel about our chalet. Just turning the corner and seeing it for the first time on any trip makes me feel instantly relaxed. Enjoying nature while having coffee, or another beverage, on the deck is one of my favorite things to do. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. Heidi & Bill

The cabin name says it all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The cabin was tastefully decorated and the neighborhood was quiet. We have stayed in mountain cabins before and this was our best experience ever! They bedding and towels were quality and plentiful, unlike places we stayed before where you only got two cheap towels per bathroom. The driveway is gravel but level and motorcycle friendly and having use of the garage was great! Nothing but good things to say about this place!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that our cabin ranks as the best for you, it does for us too. We are able to stay at the cabin a few times each year and do not want to use cheap towels either! Both Bill and I ride so garage and minimal gravel was very important to us. Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. Heidi & Bill

Second time staying here

  • 5 of 5

Vacationed with my 2 teenage daughters. This is my 2nd time staying here and this is an excellent place to stay. Has a wrap around porch located in a gated neighborhood with other nice houses. Roads are paved. House is very clean. Nice garage for your car or motorcycle. Owners are great to communicate with. This won't be my last time staying here.
