About Carson E. Hall

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.

Carson E. Hall purchased this chalet in 1994

Why Carson E. Hall chose Murphy / Andrews Area

I always wanted to live in the mountains of North Carolina....and found this beautiful vacation spot.

What makes this chalet unique

Relaxing on the creek with a cold one/ or if you dare get in the creek - the cold water is awesome!

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!

If you enjoy fly fishing, the Nantahala River is a blue ribbon trout stream which is hatchery supported and holds rainbows, browns and brook trout up to 25 inches.

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.

There are many golf courses, hiking and mountain biking trails, whitewater rafting and tubing, swimming, horseback riding and much more to enjoy while you are here.

There is an Alpine Village in Helen, Ga., and as I mentioned earlier, John C. Campbell Folk School, in Brasstown. Fields of the Wood Biblical Park is close by, and our quaint downtown has a 50's style movie theater for your enjoyment. Our local shops shops feature a variety of antiques, museums and eateries.

Older trailer / poor management

  • 1 of 5

This is an older trailer that needs some TLC. My family has stayed in plenty vrbo homes without any problems. We always make it a point to leave the place we are staying in cleaner than when we got there and this time was no different. They cut the grass just before we arrived so we were vacuuming inside daily. We were not able to take the trash down the road to the drop off place because we left too early in the morning so we left it inside. We also had a little accident with a shirt that bleed light blue onto a bath towel but if they cleaned with bleach it would come right off. There is a little door from the stairs looking in the master bedroom with a broken hinge that we had nothing to do with. All three of those issues and the owner decided she would only refund a very small portion of our deposit! I could see keeping a small amount for the trash and towel but most of the deposit is ridiculous! She is obviously just trying to make more money. If you stay here don't expect your full deposit back. It's old, a little on the nasty side, not enough hot water for 4 people to shower and they keep your deposit. There are plenty of better places in the area to not need to deal with this place!

Owner's Response: This review is not really true; but, I kind of expected it from this person. My property was damaged, probably by one of the children. Somehow, a small puncture was made in the shower area (which has since been repaired). In order for that to happen, one of the children must have thrown something at it. The garbage was not dropped off at the solid waste facility as is required. My housekeeper does an excellent job with the laundry, but was unable to bleach the towel clean. My housekeeper keeps the cabin spotless! A hula hoop was found along with a dishrag on top of one of the kitchen cabinets. And the cabinet door looking into the master bedroom was hanging. It's hard to imagine how that happened since one would probably have to jump from the loft over to the window in order to damage it...but, somehow, someone managed to damage it. As far as keeping deposits, I think this is only the second time since 2011 that I have had to keep any of the damage deposit for repairs. I am very sorry that this guest feels the way he does; and, I have critiqued this tenant to the vrbo management. I have many return customers year after year.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The place met our every need with the exception of an outside seating. The view and setting was wonderful but would be fabulous with a small covered deck

Owner's Response: Thank you, Laurie, for your response and for your very nice review! We do have outside seating at the creek with very nice and comfortable lawn chairs and a picnic table with benches. These lawn chairs, of course, could be used just outside the cabin. We will consider permanent outside seating at the cabin itself in the future. Thanks, again, for taking the time to review our cabin!

Great little rental in Murphy!

  • 4 of 5

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!
