I am employed by the nuclear industry and really enjoy going to our little spot of heaven in Murphy. The previous owner said her brother called this area 'the garden spot of the world'. He had traveled all over the world; but, considered this the most beautiful area. She was born and raised on the property and her father told of the Cherokee Indians living here before them and that the Cherokee indians washed their clothes on a flat rock in the creek. The rock is still there.
Jacqueline Hall purchased this chalet in 1994
I always wanted to live in the mountains of North Carolina....and found this beautiful vacation spot.
Relaxing on the creek with a cold one/ or if you dare get in the creek - the cold water is awesome!
Going to the Murphy area for the Labor Day weekend was a spontaneous decision, but a great one thanks to this getaway! It's every bit as charming as described, with very cozy and beautiful decor, extremely comfortable bedding, all the necessities, as well as pleasant perks, such as satellite and Wi-Fi.
The rental has beautiful surroundings; the field and the creek are both gorgeous, and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. I enjoy amateur astronomy and photography, and it was a great place for both; Friday night had clear weather, and the sky was quite breathtaking, as it's perfectly dark. During the day, the peace and quiet the location provides is such a relaxing break from being in the triad area.
Murphy is a short drive away, and even though the rental feels perfectly remote and relaxing, it takes no time at all to get groceries or whatever else you need. We miss it already, and will be sure to visit again as soon as we can.
This was the perfect location where my mom and I stayed for three nights while visiting my sister in a nearby town. This part of the country is lovely and near to my heart! As there were only two of us, this rental was sized right with the bedroom and also the pullout couch. The couch mattress was covered with a feather comforter - a little prickly, but cozy enough once you settled in. The country location was awesome and one can't help gazing out at the peaceful meadow. Easy to rent, great separate laundry building! I would rent here again!
this is a well kept rental clean and comfy. it is in a great location for all Murphy has to offer. we saw 12 deer in four days,caught plenty fish and met wonderful people. absolutly love our stay.
Was looking for a place for peace and quiet, and we found it here. We are looking to relocate and this was the perfect place to get our feet wet. The flea markets yielded some great finds. The people were friendly and found many of them were from our state. What can I say about the stars, wishing we had the telescope. The only drawback was that it didn't have a large front porch where we could sit to watch and listens to the sounds of nature and listen to it rain. Overall we would stay here again.
We set out to find a quiet getaway for our honeymoon. We wanted a place that had some form of entertainment without so much "to-do" about it. Relaxing and quiet. This filled our criteria rather flawlessly. We were immensely pleased with the rental and property, and we fell in love with Murphy. We loved the Lazy Elk furniture outlet, and the In With the Old antique and craft shop. The locals were very friendly and pleasant to be around. As far as restaurants go, the Shoebooties cafe and Rib Country are an absolute MUST! The owner was wonderful to work with, and was patient with our many questions. We plan to make this an annual thing, a tradition for us. Look forward to the next round!
This was an amazing place to stay. All the amenities of home were provided. There is enough area around to hike/walk and the creek across the property is very relaxing to listen to or have a picnic nearby. The stars at night were an amazing sight. There are many things to do in the area, mountains, hikes, gem mining, rafting, and Indian artifacts were all wonderful to experience.
I would recommend this to anyone.

Our area is quiet and peaceful. Great food and service @ Rib Country. Decker's flea market close by. You may want to visit Sweetwater Valley Farms (in Tennessee) & Lost Sea Caverns or travel to Cherokee for a little gambling. Chunky Gal Stables in Hayesville is awesome, great rides and the guides are excellent. Sue's Burgers in Blue Ridge, GA has some of the best burgers ever!

The Cherohala Skyway, is a beautiful drive that goes to heights over a mile high from Robbinsville to Tellico Plains with magnificent views and waterfalls all times of the year. Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest is close by and worth the trip.
