Murphy Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Two 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Riverfront Chalets

One of a kind riverfront property located on the beautiful Nottely River and next to a 25 acre meadow. The new Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino is just a 20 minute drive - but a world away! Enjoy the wild turkey, deer, and abundant wild life, or go trout fishing just feet from the chalet. Relax on the covered porch or the riverside gazebo as you listen to the rapids from the fish trap that was made by the indigenous Indians in times gone by. True end of the road privacy!

The property includes two 1,200 sq. ft. chalets and is located just 15 minutes from Murphy NC and Blairsville GA. Antique shops and flea markets are just minutes away. Rent one or both chalets for the perfect getaway! Combined, the two chalets sleep 10. The Tranquil Chalet sleeps 6 and the Trout Chalet sleeps 4. To rent only the Tranquil Chalet, search for listing: 3923225. To rent only the Trout Chalet, search for listing 3923273.

Our family spent years camping. We always hoped to get one of the camp sites next to the creek at Vogel State Park so we could relax to the sounds of the rushing water. That rarely happened…

As my wife and I grew older, we got tired of the walk to the communal bathroom, lousy showers, lack of privacy, and the not so great sleep in the camper. As our kids grew older, the allure of sleeping in a tent with no WiFi faded so we set out in search of the next best thing that allows us to enjoy all of the outdoor benefits of camping, but with all the comforts of home. We found it at River Run!

We chose this property because it is very unique and incredibly relaxing. The property is located at the end of a mile long dirt road on a level 1 acre fenced lot. You can rent one or both chalets depending on your needs. The covered wrap-around metal roofed porches are just feet from the Nottely River. You can fish, hike, go antiquing, sit by the fire and listen to the river, BBQ on the outdoor grill, watch the cows graze across the river, or just sit on the porch in the rockers and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Nottely River.

The two chalets offer something for all members of the family to enjoy while on vacation:

• Husband can fish while the wife goes antiquing. The best of both worlds!

• Rent both chalets and give your teenagers the privacy they want and the privacy you desire.

• Ideal for two families to vacation together and still give each other privacy.

• Ideal for a family reunion.

• Do the adults want to sleep in a real bed and take a shower in a real bathroom but the kids want to camp? We have tents and sleeping bags for the kids so they can sleep in the great outdoors next to the fire. Kind of like camping but much better for the adults!

• Kayak or tube down the Nottely River. The property is 2.5 miles downstream from Nottely dam. You can get into the river at the base of the dam.

The fish themed Trout Chalet is designed to be giant game room with beds. It includes WiFi, vintage Xbox, Wii, Ping Pong, and air hockey. Got a moody teenager with friends who want their privacy? Or wants to play their music too loud? Or wants to watch something different on TV? No problem! The Trout Chalet is the perfect kid’s getaway while you enjoy the peace and relaxation of the Rustic Chalet. They are happy and you are happy! Perfect!

The Tranquil Chalet is more refined and is ideal for those looking for a more relaxed experience with just the adults in mind, but the kids are welcome! They just won’t have as much fun as staying in the Trout Chalet…

Property includes:

• Two 1,200 sq ft chalets.

• WiFi

• Gazebo with dining table on the river.

• 1 acre fenced-in lot

• Fire pit

• Outdoor grill

• Cell phone reception

• Beautiful canopy of huge River Birch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My daughter just got engaged over the weekend in this beautiful location. Both families stayed in the two very spacious cabins. The gazebo overlooking the Nottely River was the perfect location for the surprise proposal. Even though it rained the entire weekend, the cabins have covered porches so we were still able to enjoy the outdoors and the tin roofs added to the charm. Kevin and Barbara have done such a wonderful job with these two cabins.....they lack for nothing. The kids enjoyed playing air hockey and ping pong and fishing from the gazebo. The fenced in yard is very spacious and situated in such a way that the kids could enjoy the outdoors while being watched by the adults who were able to sit under the porch and gazebo in comfort. My favorite part (outside of my daughter getting engaged) was waking up early on Sunday morning, sitting in the still of the day on the gazebo drinking my coffee and watching two coyotes play in the field across the river......I could get used to that!

Geared for Families

  • 5 of 5

The Hanville homes were well equipped for families. You could have a quiet place to relax in beautiful surroundings. Plenty of porch sitting and sharing stories. My grandchildren loved the ping pong table. I'd recommend it for families or friends of any age.

The place was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the houses. They were very clean, well maintained and comfortable. The outside area was perfect with the stream running by. We hope to be able to rent them again. Kevin was also very helpful and nice. He answered all my questions. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quite get away.

Great location on the Nottley River. Very clean!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything I hoped it would be. Two very nice homes located on the edge of the Nottley River. Bring your floats and have someone drop you off at the base of the dam. Float trip takes about 3 hours to reach the houses. Check out the Nottley Dam TVA website to know when they are letting water out. Don't float when the dam is open. Firepit was wonderful! Very clean, well kept houses. Loved the covered porches and private porches off upstairs bedrooms. Saw two turkeys in meadow beside houses. Saw multiple deer on gravel road going back to the property. Property is a mile off paved road. Multiple other properties on gravel road. Be prepared to pull over or back up if you meet another car on the gravel road. Not problem most of the time. Enjoyed it tremendously!! New casino in Murphy about 20 minutes away. Really cool flea market right down road in Murphy. Had minor issue with hornets, no fault of the owner. Owners were very quick to respond with where wasp spray was located and even sent someone over to check on us. Very pleased with this rental ❤️❤️❤️

Best of Murphy's destination for a large family

  • 5 of 5

Stayed as a family of 10, we had a pleasant and comfortable time staying at this house, the property exceeded our expectations, it supplied everything we needed from the basics to many things extra that made our vacation extra special, the kids were entertained indoors and outdoors the property with many games available. This is by far the best property we have ever rented in Murphy. I recommend it to a large family with children.

Peaceful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a long weekend in these beautiful riverfront cabins. My family stayed in the Tranquil chalet, and my brother's family stayed in the Trout Chalet. Both were clean, comfortable, and well decorated. There were plenty of things for the kids and adults...game tables, games, books, puzzles, and the fire pit. The kids enjoyed tubing down the river, but it was so cold that the adults only braved it once! The cabin was well equipped for cooking meals, and we did our grocery shopping at Food City in nearby Blairsville. There were several flea and farmers markets in Blairsville and Murphy to explore, and we also rafted the Nantahala. The owner was very easy to communicate with when we had questions and offered suggestions of nearby things to do. One word of caution...the home is definitely off the beaten path, so make sure you arrive before dark. This cabin is perfect for people who want to get away from it all and truly is a tranquil place to stay. We only wish we could have stayed longer!

Heaven in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We rented both chalets for a week for a family get together. The chalets are wonderful. Everything about them, from the furnishings, appliances, size of the chalets is first class. Our grandchildren loved the creek behind the house. They played in the water and fished. We took excursions to the flea market, to Blairsville, to the Vogel state park, and to Murphy. I probably shouldn't tell how much we enjoyed our week, because it may make renting the chalets again more difficult.
