Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Riverfront Chalet

Fish and relax just feet from the Nottely River! 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 rockers 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.

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 trout 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.

• Rent a pontoon boat on nearby Lake Nottely.

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 Tranquil 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…

Tranquil Chalet (Red Metal Roof):

• Sleeps 6 – 8

• 2 Bedrooms, 2 full baths

• Wrap around covered porch with rockers and picnic table. Porch is 25 feet from Nottely River

• Loft w/ desk and printer

• Rock fireplace

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!

Serene, quiet, tranquil, perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The property was at the end of a road, with neighbors close by but not too close. Pictures were exactly what the property looked like. Two chalets, a fire pit, a gazebo, nice porches, lovely stream and a place to cook out. The rocking chairs were comfy, the rain sounded lovely on the tin roof. The stay was very relaxing, the beds were comfortable, the place was immaculate. We had a girl's weekend and I plan on going back with my husband. It was a perfect place

Amazing trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful chalet!! The pictures do not do it justice! The view of the river was breath taking and only a few steps away.

My 10 year old son caught a fish straight from the gazebo and he had a great time. He flew a kite in the field next to the chalet and we saw about 12 turkeys one morning.

Early morning coffee on the gazebo while listening to the river was my favorite.

The chalet was very clean and had EVERYTHING you need while there.

Kevin and Barbara were quick to respond on such a short booking notice and very friendly!

My family can not wait to go back in warmer weather so we can get in the river!!

Peaceful and relaxing! Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We chose this awesome cabin for a girls get away and were very pleased. The cabin and property were amazing. Clean, well kept, had all the necessities. We could just relax here or within 10-30 min be anywhere...small town shopping, food, restaurants, hiking (theres a trail right at the property as well) ...just not enough time to do and enjoy everything. It was a great break from hectic jobs...a,wondeful place to come back to and share with our families. Thanks for sharing!

Peaceful cabin felt like home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cabin. There's enough property to fee plenty isolated, and the river was beautiful. The kitchen being stocked with lots of cookware was a great touch.

Quaint and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend my fiancé and I took a short but sweet trip to this quaint little chalet. It was perfect. The owner was very helpful with directions and answered all questions we had. It was exactly what we needed for a weekend getaway. The chalet is very homey and cozy and well worth the price. It was very clean and you can tell the upkeep is top priority. It is right by the river so we were able to tube, kayak, and fish. Even the neighbors staying besides us were awesome too. It's far enough back in the woods to have the privacy you want but not too far for delicious food and the casino! We will definitely be coming back!
