Why Ken Brockway chose Murphy / Andrews Area

The peaceful, private location offers serene mornings and pleasant, relaxing evenings on a deck that stretches across the front of the cabin and houses the LARGE hot tub. It's a perfect way to unwind while viewing the surrounding mountains and wooded scenery. Our local Farmer's Market and area Flea Markets make for interesting and unique shopping! Entertainment nearby: Short distance from our local Henn Theatre and Harrah's NEW Valley River Casio! Short drive to white water rafting and zip-lining!

How about a great family adventure on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway? It starts at the historic depot, built in 1905, in nearby downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia.

Centrally located between Asheville, Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Gaitlinburg.

Less then 30 minutes from John C. Campbell Folk School!

The cabin is in Bear Trail, a small private cabin development, minutes from Cherokee Lake, beautiful Hiwassee Dam Reservoir and the Ocoee Whitewater Center. These area waterways provide access for rafting, canoeing, fishing, and exploring!

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy the benefits of a private living space for eating, socializing and playing!

Prepare quick meals and snacks without having to go to a restaurant!

Take in the cost savings by choosing an independently owned home over a mainstream hotel.

Short Range Mountain view from covered front porch & Hot Tub.

Short distance from our local Henn Theatre and Harrah's NEW Valley River Casio!

Guestbook comments from the owner

To start, your cabin is breath-taking; absolutely stunning! We immediately felt at home. Your delightful welcome package was much appreciated. The combination of the absolute cozy atmosphere, the amazing view, the nature to cure our souls was astounding. Being here just the first night- all,of us- the stress just MELTED AWAY! I want to thank you, in words that I cannot seem to being together, for how much this cabin, Bumble Bee Cabin, really has done for us so far in our stay here. This is truly super blurb :) Jess

nice cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

A nice cozy retreat located near murphy. Super quiet, remote but not that remote. Located in a subdivision off main highway. Far enough away that you can't hear any traffic. We saw/heard only two cars drive near us. Clean. Hot tub was great. Owner was very attentive and took care of us when I had a request.

Everything we needed and very clean. It is nice that it is not "over done" with stuff you are afraid to touch or it might break. For our purpose it is a very good location. Yes, we will consider staying there next year.

Super peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying at bumble bee cabin! It's tucked away about a mile off the main highway so if you're seeking seclusion, you've found it. It was exactly what I needed, to relax and clear my head. The owners have equipped the cabin with everything you'll need, even a big crockpot so pick up plenty of food and drinks; open the back doors and enjoy your time away from the stresses of everyday life. You'll have to drive roughly 10 miles to get to what Murphy has to offer, but it's a pretty little town. The river walk was nice so bring a football/baseball gloves and have fun!

Quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the cabin very much. Happy with how nice and clean the cabin itself was. Plenty of towels to use. Close to the casino. Peach tree in the yard, full of peaches. Lots of games, puzzles, books and DVDs. Some of the games are missing pieces but we were able to play a good game of Scrabble on a stormy night. Only down fall I have is that the water in the hot tub didn't seem fresh. I noticed that once the water got stirred up, there was something almost like dust bunnies floating in the water. I don't know what it was but that is what it reminded me of. Since I was already inside, I decided to just scoop it out when I saw it float by.

Owner's Response: Playing Scrabble on a stormy night in a quiet and peaceful cabin in the mountains sounds delightful! We are glad you enjoyed your time in Murphy, NC. Our apologies for the hot tub. Generally, it is crystal clear and completely relaxing after a busy day of hiking. Thanks for your feedback.

Murphy, North Carolina, is the county seat of Cherokee County located in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. Murphy is an old town with its origin dating back to 1839. Downtown is beautiful with tree lined streets and many historic buildings restored to their original state. Murphy has restaurants, many unique shops, and other interesting establishments all within walking distance in the heart of town.

Recreational activities are unlimited from local trout streams that are stocked and mountain biking to the entertaining NEW Harrah's River Valley Casio (opening Sept 2015). Hiwassee Lake is considered one of the most beautiful in the state. Murphy offers something for every sports enthusiast.

Planning a unique and memorable family adventure? Try the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway with its quaint shopping district, friendly folks and old-time atmosphere ! It starts at the historic depot, built in 1905, in nearby downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia.

If you are looking for a beautiful small town in the mountains, look no further. Murphy with its population of 1700 people resembles a Norman Rockwell painting. It is indeed, small town life at the very best. We look forward to seeing you!
