Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better trip. The view of the river, large outdoor deck and outside pool sold us on the house, which is everything you can expect from the pictures! The house was nicely decorated with tvs in each room and a fireplace in the living room. The beds were very comfortable and there was enough room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The house is quite remote, so the transportation options are limited without Uber or cab services, but a perfect getaway from it all. Absolutely wonderful weekend. We will certainly be back!

Perfect home to enjoy with family

  • 5 of 5

Five adults, spent six nights, we all loved everything. The view over the river is remarkable, and there are lots of decks and windows to admire it from. The house and pool were pristine. Lots of space inside and out to relax and enjoy. Very well equipped. Peaceful and private. A really beautiful place. Thank you for making it available!

Great house and gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (kids ages 15 and 10) stayed for almost two weeks in August 2017. The owners were very responsive with questions, and were gracious when there was a HomeAway-caused glitch when we booked. The house has amazing views, combining the high elevation with the lake views. It is at the end of a gravel road, and although there are other homes nearby, there is complete privacy on all the outside decks. Having stayed in the Murphy area several times before (sometimes way off the beaten path!), we appreciated how close the home is to town and major roads.

The home is warmly decorated- it is not sparsely furnished like some rentals. The beds were very comfortable, and we told our teenage son that he had the best room in the house (the upstairs bedroom with the balcony), as it had amazing views. The bedrooms had large closets, and the upstairs rooms had dressers. There was no dresser in the master, so clothes that could not be hung in the closet remained in our suitcase, which was a bit of an annoyance when staying for so long. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to cook in. Our only real complaint about the house was that the living room was not very comfortable for a family. There is a leather sofa, which was great for two people, but the only other seating was two wooden chairs that had no real cushion. We usually ended up piling on the master bed to watch some TV together at night. The outside space is great- lots of comfortable furniture on all the decks and around the pool and fire pit. Abundant wildlife to see too- many different kinds of birds, as well as frogs and lizards. Even caught a quick glimpse of a bear cub as it entered the wooded area below the house.

In addition to playing ping pong, foosball and swimming in the pool, there is lots to do in the area, and we kept busy with whitewater rafting on the Ocoee, zip lining, kayaking on the Toccoa, picnicking and playing in the water at Fires Creek, and watching the rafters at the Ocoee Whitewater Center. Our kids favorite activity is renting a pontoon boat to go tubing on Lake Hiwassee, which is a blast, and the folks at Mountain View Marina are always great.

This is really a special house- it was hard to leave!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind review Sandy. You were great guests and are always welcome back. It's tough with kids and school but try to return during the Fall. The leaves are incredible as you peer across the national forest mountains from the decks! I'm jealous that you guys saw a bear cub. I've seen wild turkey, beaver, and plenty of deer. Best to you and your family, Scott
