About the property

2 bedroom/2 bath sleeps 4

Tired of overcrowded freeways and the stress of everyday living? The Bear Hutt is one of the best places to sit and relax in private after a day of playing and exploring what the beautiful rivers and mountains of North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee have to offer. The Bear Hutt comes with a fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV with satellite, DVD player, gas fireplace, WIFI, outdoor grill and a fire pit. There is plenty of room for parking and to turn your vehicle around if you are trailering your motorcycle. Just bring your food, clothes and toiletries, everything else is taken care of. You'll find that the Bear Hutt is perfect for couples and small families. The wood furniture and mirrors in the cabin were made by the well known artist, Jeff Hutt.

The Bear Hutt is private and located between Murphy and Andrews. It is accessed from a 1/2 mile well maintained gravel road which is off Highway 141.

The Bear Hutt is conveniently located near rafting sites, restaurants, horseback riding, Smokey Mountain National Park, gem mining, pottery studios, antiquing, fishing, hiking, golfing, shopping, biking, canoeing and scenic parkways and skyways. The John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown is 20 minutes away and has summer concerts and fall festivals.

About Jeff & Laura Hutt

We recently moved to the west coast of Florida after living in the Florida Keys for 18 years and fell in love with western North Carolina. We travel back and forth to the Bear Hutt as often as we can. Some say we have the best of both worlds! We hope you enjoy the Bear Hutt as much as we do and come back to visit over and over again.

Jeff & Laura Hutt purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Jeff & Laura Hutt chose Murphy / Andrews Area

The Bear Hutt is located close to the new casino, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, the John Campbell Folk School, hiking trails and is a beautiful ride through the Nantahala Gorge, Cherohala Skyway and on to the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is close to everything this beautiful area has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

The Bear Hutt and setting is very relaxing. Our favorite activities are building fires in our firepit, hiking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, taking our motorcycle on scenic drives and just exploring all that the area has to offer.

Completely understated. Under promised and way over delivered. A treasure of NC

  • 5 of 5

This place was SO great, we want it all to ourselves. What more could a person ask for? If we had a list of wants for our vacation cabin, this place went above and beyond. The view was breath-taking! The kitchen, and 2 bathrooms were stocked to the max. It really felt like we were guests in someone's home as opposed to a vacation rental. It felt warm and inviting the entire time. There were 6 rocking chairs on the patio! Even the small appointments like the lights and fans on the patio, and the hummingbird feeders. The kitchen is STOCKED with extras in case you forget something. There were birds and lightening bugs all over! It was SO quiet there, it was too quiet almost. I could hear my ears in the evening!

It was also clean as a whistle. But the VIEW....was to die for!

The location is good. We ride motorcycles and the felt centralized to Pisgah, The Dragon, Six Gap and Moonshiner 28. Murphy is basically 10 minutes away with Walmart, groceries, etc. We had 4G LTE service on our phones plus the wifi. But you don't feel like you're in an area that is connected.

Be aware of the directions to getting there. Basically stay right the entire way up, and it's a bit up the hill. Make sure you have either AWD or enough speed. We pulled a trailer with our FWD Tiguan and it took some maneuvering; but it's safe and very manageable.

Fantastic, relaxing week with incredible views.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fantastic week. We really enjoyed the cabin, and got to explore the surrounding are quite a bit as well. Everything with the cabin was in order, it was spotlessly clean, and well supplied with additional essentials. We also really enjoyed spending evenings on the porch watching the sun set over the mountains.

We will definitely be back, hopefully sometime next summer.
