About Larry and Denise Rowe

This is our 5 year old vacation home that we are happy to share with anyone that loves the mountain views like we do. Nothing better than relaxing on the deck in the morning with a cup of coffee enjoying either the lush green of summer or the beautiful colors of fall.

Larry and Denise Rowe purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Larry and Denise Rowe chose Murphy / Andrews Area

We have vacationed in North Carolina for the last 30 years. Hiked many trails, enjoyed waterfalls, tubing and rafting.

The cabin and views were good.

This property is not close to activities. We had to drive a lot to get to anything.

Owner's Response: Joseph, I am Sorry to hear that your vacation was not what you expected. Murphy is a rural mountain town with beautiful views and a quaint down town with a wonderful river walk. The house is 20 miles from the Nantahala river gorge for kayaking and white water rafting. We are 8 miles from Walmart and Ingles. Honestly maybe a quick google of the area before booking to search for the activities you were looking for was in order. Thanks for feed back. Larry and Denise

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from August 27 through September 3, 2016

Thank you Larry and Denise for sharing your home with us for the second time. We got there a little earlier then planned. I called Denise and she told me it was okay to go into the home early. My son, husband and I enjoyed our time in Murphy. We loved watching the humming birds and the deer. We went to Gatlinburg, TN and on the way back we saw 4 Elk. We love the Community of Crisp Mountain. We are hoping some day to own a home there. But until then we will rent Mountain View Escape.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been better. This is a very clean, comfortable, beautiful cabin in a quiet, peaceful location. the pictures of the inside the cabin don't show just how nice the cabin is decorated. And everything we needed for our stay was provided. We enjoyed the early mornings sitting on the deck looking at the fog across the mountains and valley and watching the hummers and other birds eating from the feeders. The view from the deck is beautiful and we used binoculars to view the distant landscape. In the late afternoons baby rabbits would come out into the clearing and eat. we saw numerous deer and turkeys. Our only disappointment was that we never saw a pretty sunset due to cloudiness. the owners are great to work with and our thanks to them for sharing their cabin with us. In summary, it's just a great place to stay. We highly recommend the owners and their cabin to everyone.

Best sunset around!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time staying at the chalet. The pictures do not do the chalet justice. The mountain view is stunning. We enjoy our coffee on the deck in the morning watching the cows and horses in the pasture below and breathtaking sunsets with a glass of wine in the evenings. Although there are neighbors you have privacy on the deck enjoying the views and wildlife (turkeys, rabbits, deer, many different birds). This year my favorite was the family of wild rabbits that played in the yard. It was cute to see the babies eat and play until momma rabbit came to collect them. They would be out in the morning and evenings! We enjoy the mountain view and comforts of the cabin and day trips every year. We will be back next year since we have not ran out of things to do yet!!!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful chalet Larry & Denise.
