MANY MORE AMENITIES THAN USUALLY FOUND IN VACATION RENTALS

WOW!! THERE IS NO WHERE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN SPRING, SUMMER OR FALL IN THE MOUNTAINS!!! AND NOW A NEW 110 MILLION DOLLAR CASINO IN MURPHY!!! HOW GREAT!

EVERY WHO SAYS HERE SAYS THE PICTURES DON'T DO THIS RENTAL JUSTICE - IT IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THEY EXPECTED!! BELLE TIMBRE The house sits on 3 acres of manicured grounds, with 400 ft on a rushing creek, and a large pond stocked with bass. There is a canoe available for on the pond fishing. Fishing is catch and release. For additional fishing, Cherokee Lake Park is not far, and there is a long deck out over the water for fishing.

The log house is 2100 s.F. Of rustic/chalet architecture; on one side we have a family room/dining area/kitchen all open with a vaulted ceiling, main bedroom with a main bathroom w/double sink and tub, and a utility washer/dryer area. A large pella window views the bird feeder/back yard area, and a sliding doors open out to the 40 ft deck. A large opening goes to the living room with 22 ft high paneled ceiling and gas fireplace on a raised hearth,a large deer head over fireplace, a 2nd bedroom and bath with patio doors that view out to the pond. All this is on one floor, wheel chair accessible from the garage with a small step up. There is a front door with a stairway leading up to the loft from the stone hallway. The loft area is 15 x 15 and has a daybed that opens to a double sleeping area. The house comfortably sleeps 6 people. The house has two-zone heat and air systems, and two hot water heaters. Two t.V.S, one 43 inch h.D. In family room. There is a pro=form treadmill in the living room, a grill on the deck. Living room also has two large sliding doors that open to the deck, back yard and creek. There is a burn pit in the back yard for bonfires. PETS ARE ALLOWED UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS AND MUST BE APPROVED. . One car can be put in garage, the other side has personal things stored there. If needed, guests can use tools, etc but they must be put back or replaced. The driveway is gently sloped to house, and has flat area for multi-car parking. Both bedrooms downstairs are queen beds. We have wi-fi in the house. Phone is also provided. Verizon Cell Phones Work at the house, and others do work at the end of Joyce road on the paved road called Culberson rd. The road to the house is a gravel road, very well kept and graded. It has curves and turns and a hill but there has never been a problem if people adhere to the 10 mph posted signs. In all the years of this subdivision, roads to cabins in this area can be a real problem especially those that sit on mountains. This should be a real concern when renting in the mountains - but this road is well maintained and safe. We are 2 hrs from everything - Atlanta, Chattanooga and all the wonderful tourist sights, including white water rafting on the Ocoee and Nantahala rivers, boating on Lake Chatuge with 200 miles of shoreline, hiking trails all over. Take a day trip to Highlands and see dry falls, bridal veil falls, and all the great shops and dining in Highlands. Go to chimney rock park and ride the elevator or hike up the stairs to the top with a 100 mile view; ride to Ashville to Mt. Mitchell, the highest point in the south; go horseback riding and visit the castle restaurant named Brasstown Valley resort and spa. Go to Young Harris to the six-movie theatre with attached playtime area with every type of game and rides imaginable. Or just sit on the deck with a cup of coffee and enjoy the many birds, hummingbirds, deer, turkeys, hawks, ETC.

WE WOULD ALSO CONSIDER A SHORT TERM RENTAL OF ONE TO SIX MONTHS FOR A SPECIAL RATE THAT INCLUDES EVERYTHING EXCEPT ELECTRICITY AND MOWING - WI FI, SATELLITE TV, INTERNET. RENTOR PAYS ELECTRICITY AND GRASS MOWING.

About MARY YVONNE WALKER

This was the dream home that I planned for over 30 years. I did a lot of research on log homes, and put everything I loved about every place I have ever lived into this house. I designed the house and was the general contractor for the building process. No amount was spared and nothing but top quality materials went into the house, right down to double pane windows and sliding glass doors. I have never rented it to anyone, but now I spend most of the year down in my home in Florida because all my children and grand-children are down here. It was a shame to let it sit for so long with no one to enjoy it, so I decided to do vacation rentals to people who appreciate quality, comfort and peace and quiet. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do when I am there.

MARY YVONNE WALKER purchased this chalet in 2002

Why MARY YVONNE WALKER chose Murphy / Andrews Area

This vacation rental has so many more amenities that you will not find in most vacation rentals. When you open the front door, take a deep breath and look around - you feel like you are home or in a home you would like to have. It is comfortable, cozy, everything you need and built like a fortress. It has everything you need to enjoy and quiet, homey vacation including a treadmill, burn pit, gas fireplace, and all the comforts you could want or need. Well behaved pets are welcome and the property, creek and pond are like DOG HEAVEN. NO TRAFFIC AND IT IS SO RARE TO FIND A CABIN RENTAL WITH A GARAGE. EVERYONE WHO HAS STAYED HERE FALLS IN LOVE WITH THE PLACE.

What makes this chalet unique

OUR RATES ARE COMPETITIVE AND INCLUDE TAXES. PROPERTY IS VERY BEAUTIFUL AND THE HOUSE HAS AN ATTACHED GARAGE RIGHT OFF THE FAMILY ROOM AND MANY MORE AMENITIES THAN YOU USUALLY FIND IN VACATION RENTALS.

Great Location, Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is in the perfect location - halfway between Murphy and Blue Ridge. We enjoyed a relaxing two months exploring the area and relaxing at the house. The house has everything you need and more, and Mary is wonderful to work with. She is very happy to help with any needs you may have. There is plenty of room for the dog to run around. Ours enjoyed both the creek and pond. We did not use the canoe or do any fishing. The road was no issue at all. In two months we only passed two other vehicles and it was easy to get around them. Thank you Mary!

Xmas rental

  • 1 of 5

Dead bugs all over upon arrival..bed in second bedroom is a joke,the bed is partial mattress and partial comforter rolled up to take up the dead space..boat was left in pond full of water and no place for inside dogs,garage is to cold..guests had a hard time with Wi-Fi due to sharing small amounts of data through the month with other guests who book in that month.. cleaning crew should take more pride and owners should check it more often

Owner's Response: In answer to all these allegations, anyone who knows the mountains knows that in the late fall and early winter, lady bugs come into all the houses. You can vacuum up 50 and the next day there are 50 more. It's something we who live there take it in stride. My cleaning girl checked the house out two days before their arrival and cleaned up what bugs were there and re-mopped the floor. The bed spoken about is a queen sized mattress and because there is a small area between the mattress and frame, there are body pillows to take up that space. No one else ever complained. Inside dogs are supposed to be crated if left alone. It is not my responsibility to provide an area to keep dogs in. During the draght the boat was parked lower near water, and when rain came it raised the pond level and floated the boat. None of these things were mentioned after I had several phone conversations with them. Like I always say, Tell me first so I can fix it before you tell everyone else.

Exactly what the Doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely and relaxing stay. The house itself is very welcoming and "homie". Vast property with a lot of privacy, and even a small pond to catch and release a view Bass from :-)

We very much enjoyed our stay at Belle Timbre. Ms Walker gave us great directions/instructions and the ease of booking was great! The surrounding property is beautiful. It is level and well maintained, great for walking. Our dogs loved being able to run and play and they loved the creek. My husband was hoping to fish, but pond was down too much due to the drought. We especially loved that the majority of the cabin was all on one level. Another positive was that it was close to town. We dined the first night at dog friendly murphy chophouse. That was very convenient. We spent the next day just relaxing around the cabin. We only stayed a couple of days, but would have loved to stay longer. We will definitely be back. The gravel road leading to the cabin is narrow as others have stated, but we had no problem driving in or out.

Nice chalet

  • 5 of 5

Chalet was a little bit back in the woods, beautiful property, but would have preferred something a bit closer to the main roads, the one lane drive is a bit scary especially after dark, nearly hit someone who was coming out at the time we were going down. The chalet had most anything needed to settle for the week. The main bathroom would not allow us to use tub, the plug doesn't lock properly to keep in bath water, which was a nuisance with our youngster who doesn't do well with showers. The back deck and surrounding yard areas were the highlight of the stay. Absolutely loved all the space. Nice chalet, just a bit too far out for our liking.
