Jennifer purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Jennifer chose Murphy / Andrews Area

We have visited this area for years--We Love the Smokey Mountains!! My Husband Chris found this cabin tucked away in the Forest on Wonderful Camp Creek. We had a chance to get to know the Owner & had stayed @ this Cabin a few times & Fell In Love with It!! We always said: 'If you ever want to sell.....'. Well, the time was right when she did decide to sell & we are soooo glad we did. We have upgraded & added some of our own personal touches that we hope you enjoy as well!! We would Love to share it with you--Please feel free to call us with Any questions. We hope to see you @ Mystic Creek Cabin!!

What makes this cabin unique

Simply Enjoying the Natural Beauty of the Area. We Love to take long scenic drives thru the Smokey Mountains! Our Creekside Firepit is Great & soooo Relaxing. The Sounds of Camp Creek & The Waterfalls are mesmorizing!! Hiking around the area is fun & great exercise--so much wildlife to see. We love that you really get back to nature & we just feel a sense of calm just being here! Lake Apalachia & Lake Hiawassee are a wonderful treat too!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to send you a follow up email and let you know that we had the best time at your beautiful cabin last week. I had never been to the Smoky Mountain area before our visit, and we fell in love with the mountains and your property. We will never forget our retreat to nature and of course our time in the cabin, and we wanted to thank you for a wonderful vacation! Be assured that we will consider your properties for future getaways :)

Thanks again,

May 2014

The photos of the cabin do not do it justice. The view is amazing and the sound of the creek is perfection. I definitely will be back to visit! There is no cell reception at the cabin but the wireless works great. Amazing place to stay when you really want to get away from it all!!

There are a couple cabins that are close but neither seemed to be occupied when I visited. I definitely recommend a vehicle with 4WD as the entrance to the cabin is steep, but it can be done in a passenger car with turbo / overdrive options. The power did go out when there was a storm, but was on again within 2 hours. The cabin was stocked with flashlights though (thank goodness)! The storm was delightful, all in all, and I am glad that I was able to experience it in the mountains!

Overall, it was exactly what I was looking for and was perfect!!

It is an amazing cabin with everything you need... we were 6 people (4 adults and 2 children) driving a Honda Odyssey and made it just fine. Outside is perfect for a picnic day or just go for a walk we recommend this place

Little Fallingwater

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at Mystic Creek was like waking up in a dream in the forest. The setting reminded us of Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece. Enjoyed the sound of the creek, the whispering of the trees and the beauty of the scenery.
