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,

Very peaceful, quaint and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

If you want to be out there with nothing around but nature by a creek, this is it. Quaint and cozy. The only issue we had was upon arrival, the deodorizers were potent. After unplugging them and airing it out a bit, everything was fine.

Labor Day weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were blessed to be able to stay at the cabin for three nights to get away for the Labor Day weekend and also as a late anniversary trip. We have rented numerous cabins over the years in Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee and this is definitely one of the best. The setting with the creek and beautiful trees couldn't be more perfect. The house was clean, cozy, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped to cook meals and it's nice to have a washer and dryer if you need it. It was recommended that we not drive in on the gravel road in a passenger car so we came in our rear wheel drive truck and had no problem. (The people staying at the cabin just past us were in a Honda Civic and seemed to make it just fine.) Most of our time was spent sitting out on the deck just enjoying the serenity. We did go into Murphy one afternoon for lunch and to walk around the town. We've visited the area several times and love it's beauty. Hopefully we can return to the cabin again when we need to get away from it all and de-stress. The only possible improvement I would do is to upgrade to a new TV in the living area.

Private and comfortable in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Mystic Creek Cabin mid August for 4 nights. All information was accurate and communication was easy. Cabin is at end of a unpaved road so all wheel or 4 wheel is needed. Cabin does have everything you would need, was clean, comfortable and peaceful. We purchased groceries and firewood in town on way to cabin. Used outside fireplace every night and walked/climbed down creek to waterfalls and gazebo. Beautiful area in the mountains near Lake Apalachia and Lake Hiawassee. Recommend Wagonmasters on Adventure Road for activities with Debbie and a chartered boat ride with Captain Roger. Also rafting on Hiawassee River was a great time!

A magical place!

  • 5 of 5

We so very much enjoyed staying at Mystic Creek Cabin and hated to leave, even for a day trip. The cabin is lovely and fully furnished with everything you may need. The sound of the creek was so very relaxing and refreshing. We would encourage you to bring your own firewood, although a few pieces were available. Also definitely make a WIDE left turn leaving the cabin. Unfortunately, we probably put a few ruts in the roadway by not making as wide of a turn as we should have. Sorry about that. Low clearance cars need not apply for this spot; therefore, we are actually looking for an all-wheel drive vehicle so we can come again in the fall to see the beautiful leaf colors. If you are looking for a place to relax and get away from it all (although they do have Wi-Fi), this is it!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy we were able to stay a week at Mystic creek cabin. My husband just got back from his 8th deployment, and we wanted to get away from everyone and everything with our 2 sons. A time for all 4 of us to be together again and reconnect. This was the perfect place. The fire pit right next to the creek was one of our favorite spots. A fire every night, the boys looking for the perfect s'mores sticks, light shows from all the fireflies, and the sounds of the creek. So relaxing! Even though the Wifi was great to have, It was so nice for all of us to be more outside doing things together than on our phones/electronics.

I was shocked by how stocked the kitchen was. It was just like we were home plus more!

Jennifer called the night we got there to make sure we arrived and made sure everything was good. (It was beyond good! Lol)

The gps could not find the actual address but we didn't have any problems finding the cabin. We set the gps to cross streets (Owassa and camp creek rd) then followed the directions that were given with all the other info we received.

One thing we did find out is the waste service center was open on Sunday's. The temporary access pass listed it closed Wednesday and Sunday. On our way home (Sunday) we passed it and noticed it was open, so we turned around and we were able to drop our trash off. The man working was super nice too! :)

We had the best time here! Thank you so much Jennifer and Chris!!! You have a beautiful place! Hope we can come stay again soon!!
