Overview

About the property

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, 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 (red metal roof) 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

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!

This is a great property, perfect for a relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the two chalets anticipating a group of 11. Only 8 wound up going and we were more than comfortable. Each guy had their own bed, but there certainly would have been room for a few others. The chalets are wonderful. They are nicely furnished and super clean. The location is incredible; right on the river side and with enough room for lawn games or enjoying a nice fire.

Kevin was immediately responsive to all communications and so helpful in ensuring our stay was enjoyable.

Just one note on the property. It is very remote, down a long dirt road. No problem for our van and I don't imagine it would be a problem for any vehicle. I only mention it so that you won't be put off when getting to the location. It can be a little uncertain at first, but so very much worth the drive. Just take it slow. Only enough room for one vehicle so if someone is coming the opposite direction it can be tricky.

Thank you Kevin and Barbara for the stay. You have a such a great place here and we hope to visit again in the future.

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

The 2 cabins were great!!! Right on the water and had everything needed for our stay and much more. Clean and well maintained. Located 20-30 minutes from surrounding towns. We visited Nottely Dam, Poteet campground, Blue Ridge, Blairsville and Murphy. Nottely Dam was a beautiful site and a must see. If you looking for great pizza visit Sicily's and for a exceptional breakfast go to the Sawmill restaurant. Both are located in Blairsville. We took advantage of the tubes located at the cabin for a short float down the river. The water was freezing!!!! Kids didn't mind. The road to the cabins is a little rough and narrow in places. If you meet a car you have to find a place to back up and pull over. This only happened twice during our stay and was not a big issue. We LOVED the goat farm located at the beginning of the road. Kevin was quick to respond to any questions I had during our stay. I highly recommend this place for a secluded getaway. Thank you to the owners for allowing our families to make vacation memories.

Great place for children and adults of all ages!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the perfect weekend here with our children and grandchildren. Teenagers and kids loved traveling down the river in their "big ducky"float while adults trout fished. And I watched the whole scene from the gazebo.

Cabins were well stocked and clean. Kevin was very responsive and answered almost immediately each time I messaged him. View of the meadow on one side and river on the other side was beautiful! Lots of room for kids to run around outside. We will definitely be back!!

Relaxing with a side dish of tranquility.

  • 5 of 5

Property has a very relaxing atmosphere. Family enjoyed the ability to go into stream and catch dinner. Our first night we walked the river trail up stream and caught trout for dinner. In the process of fishing an American Bald Eagle was flying down the river looking for dinner also.. AMAZING to see this bird soar down stream. Trout was amazing on the open fire pit at the chalets. NOTE: You will need to call and schedule wood to be brought to Chalet call Bruce for firewood (828) 361-7327. We requested 2 cores be delivered. Our family burned 1 1/2 cores while we where there enjoying family time outside. The owners have a fire pit rack that we cooked prime rib on for Christmas. The fire pit was on duty 24hrs for 3 Days straight. Between trout, prime rib, hotdogs, hamburgers, wings, and smores we never went hungry. Chalets are fully stocked for cooking and cleaning laundry.

FAMILY OF 28 stayed here over Holiday Season.

12 Adults

14 Kids

Sleeping Bags was a must for this unexpected family reunion for Christmas.

Kevin,

Great arrangement with the two homes on one lot. Thinking of a second visit over the summer to enjoy the river!

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.
