Two 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Riverfront Chalets
Kevin & Barbara Hanville
About Kevin & Barbara Hanville
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!
Kevin & Barbara Hanville purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why Kevin & Barbara Hanville chose Murphy
We chose this property because it is very unique and you will not find another like it to rent. The two chalets allows for all to enjoy the family vacation. The Trout House is designed like a giant game room with beds. It includes WiFi, Xbox 360, Ping Pong, and air hockey. Got a moody teenager with friends who want their privacy? Or want to play their music to loud? Or want to watch something different on TV? No problem! The Trout House is the perfect kid’s getaway while you enjoy the peace and relaxation of the Country House. They are happy and you are happy! Perfect!
What makes this Chalet unique
The two chalets offer something for all members of the family. 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.

My family takes an annual Memorial Day trip every year, this year we picked this location and it was by far one of the best trips we have been on so far. The houses were very clean and comfortable for our group. We were able to enjoy a local golf course and some shopping in town. The river was awesome for everyone, we caught some trout and swam around a little as well. This is a perfect getaway and I highly recommend it. Kevin was great on answering any questions very quickly.
Nice weekend getaway, definitely off the beaten path.
Had a great time, beautiful place. Unfortunately it rained the whole time, but had plenty to occupy the time in the trout chalet. Sitting on porch listening to rain on metal roof was nice change of pace.
It had everything you needed except clothes and food. It was amazing I didn't want to leave..we fished,grilled and hung around the firepit..it had been immaculately clean and was so well organized it had board games,air hockey
Pingball,Xbox great reception on the t.v..
The whole experience was lovely. I can't wait to go back. Both cabins were beautiful. The view is amazing.the beds were comfortable the space was awesome. If your looking for a place to hide away .or bond with family and friends are just reconnect as a couple either the trout cabin or the tranquil cabin will be perfect. Kevin was a great host and a straight shooter. He made sure every detail was perfect and answer questions without hesitation..so missing the quite and laid back feeling of the cabins. It was if you were transported back in time before everything turned in such a hassle . You will be happy here.your 10 minutes from everything shopping, dining, flea markets and don't forget to catch a ride on the smoky mountains train.
Our group of 7 enjoyed this river property. Everything that was needed was onsite in the 2 chalets. Kevin was very timely with responses to questions. We will be back!
Rented both cabins for 8 adults and a baby and had wonderful time. The owners were easy to work with and we met the housekeeper next door who was very friendly. This would be a great place for 2 families. Each would have their own private cabin and there is plenty of spacious gathering places.... open concept indoor areas, roomy porches, a big firepit centrally located and a nice sized yard. We also enjoyed the waterside gazebo and the short path for easy access to the river. The Kitchens were well-equipped and it was great having 2 bathrooms in each cabin! The property has plenty of shade trees and privacy for a peaceful, relaxing stay. As other reviews noted, the gravel/dirt road is narrow and a bit rough in places but we took it slow and had no problems getting in and out, even with the some heavy rains during our stay. Speaking of the rain, we were still able to enjoy the outdoors with those covered porches and there were games and puzzles available as well..... had a very competitive game of monopoly one rainy evening! Great memories made here. We would definitely go back!
We rented both houses for a long weekend. The houses are beautiful and have everything you need for your stay. If you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of life this is the place to be! So peaceful. Stop on your way in and get all your supplies because I can guarantee once you arrive you won't want to leave!
My grandkids had so much fun. They loved the air hockey game! We all definitely want to come back next year!
