Murphy Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Large deck has a panoramic view of the Nottley River and Mountain tops. The cabin is located on a paved dead end road that offers privacy, peace and quite. The property looks down on the Nottley River which is approximately 200 feet below at the edge of the property. In a large field across the river, deer, turkeys and geese can be seen from the deck in early morning and at sunset.

Family room has a stone fire place with gas logs. Large dining table and 2 bar stools for extra seating. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a large TV. The second bedroom has two twin beds and a roll-away-bed.

The deck is on the front of the cabin facing the Nottley river with the view of a corn field and mountain peak in the back. It includes covered and uncovered areas. Uncovered area has a picnic table and a gas grill. Covered area has rocking chairs for your enjoyment of the views.

A six person hot tub sits on a covered Gazebo in front of the deck with a knock out view of the Nottley River with great sounds of the rapids on the river. In addition we have just excavated an area next to the hot tub and installed a 36 inch fit pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. There is nothing more captivating than sitting in an adirondack chair after you've taken a dip in the hot tub and enjoy eating hot dogs, marshmallows and drinking your favorite beverage around the fire pit which overlooks the Nottley river and the mountain peaks. It is an experience you don't want to miss.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at the Nottley River Retreat. This is a beautiful, warm and charming cabin with beautiful views. It feels very private and secluded and you have amazing views of fields and the river. We especially loved the hot tub and the wonderful porch where we ate most of our meals. The accomodations are very comfortable with a great bed in the master bedroom and a very comfortable couch with a huge tv. The kitchen has all the needs for cooking while on vacation. There is great wi-fi service as well. The location is great. There were lots of areas to explore and fun local culture. There are lots of hiking options nearby and even a little further out. There were great dining options not too far away (we would HIGHLY recommend the Copper Door in Hayesville, NC...amazing fine dining!) This was exactly the kind of getaway accomodations we were looking for and would definitely stay again in the future. We unequivocally would recommend the Notley Retreat!

We miss this place. It was a great place to relax, unwind, calling the Turkeys across the river from the back porch, while drinking a cup of coffee in the early, cool morning, and listen to the river run down stream

Awesome...home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this beautiful cabin! It felt like home. Beautiful views! We were able to see all types of wildlife including several deer and plenty of wild turkeys. The sunsets were breathtaking & each one was different. Hot tub was so relaxing not to mention the constant soothing sound of the rushing river. The elderly women enjoyed the cabin as well. They were able to move around easily & enjoyed the back deck overlooking the river. They loved sitting in the wonderful rocking chairs & watching all the wildlife that surrounded us. They counted 50 turkeys & at one point we all spotted 5 deer in the pasture across the river. The kitchen & bathrooms have everything you need & more. Bath towels, hand towels & wahclothes provided. Extra sheets, pillowcases & blankets were also provided. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds. There are even enough pillows for my pillow loving friend. We had a blast building fires in the fire pit & just being in the moment. We enjoyed being off the beaten path & the only traffic you might hear is a neighbor. Ceiling fans were greatly appreciated for all of us hormonal women. Lol. Really enjoyed the flat screen tv & the leather sectional. Gas fireplace was easy to run & makes it even more homey. I don't know if I've covered all the bases but I believe this cabin is the best one I've stayed in so far! Raymond was very helpful & answered all questions promptly. He was extremely courteous in any given situation. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. We will definitely be back again!

Amazing...inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about this cabin! From the time you pull up to the door and see the spectacular views of the mountains and river, and then once you open the door, the cabin feels like home. Beautifully decorated and has everything you would need. The owners are wonderful! We wish our stay was longer! and only hope we can return!
