Murphy Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in the beautiful Smokey Mountains, this wonderful rental chalet has breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. It has a 12 foot wide deck where you can sip your favorite beverage and enjoy natures sights and sounds. We are also located about 15 minutes from the new Murphy Casino that the Cherokee Nation just opened up.

The interior of the chalet has hardwood floors and pinewood ceiling. Snuggle up or get warm in front of a beautiful 42 inch river rock fire place. Tastefully decorated, you will feel right at home. If you want to relax or enjoy natures offerings, this is the place for you!

About Mike Folger

Since we are 'flat landers' from Florida, but enjoy the mountains, we decided to build a home in mountains of North Carolina. We have had many wonderful family vacations enjoying mountains and the waters of NC and the surrounding states.

Mike Folger purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Mike Folger chose Murphy / Andrews Area

Murphy is very central to many points of interest in North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee.

What makes this cabin unique

Love this area because it is surrounded by water and mountains. There are 4 lakes and 3 rivers all within an hour and less. Great mountain drives and wonderful fishing. Does not get better.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mike,

Jeremy and I really enjoyed our week in the mountains. The view from the loft bedroom and the deck was just stunning! We only had one day of sunshine, and the leaves at that elevation were only just beginning to turn, but we had a great time hiking the area and visiting the Campbell Folk Art School and seeing the students working on their projects. One day we took the Skyway drive into Tennessee and to the Joyce Kilmer forest. We drove through a misty landscape of hoar-frost-encrusted trees (at 32 F temperatures) at the higher elevations. The fall colors around 4000ft were spectacular. On another day we hiked on the Bartram Trail to Jones Gap and to the top of Whiterock Mountain, a huge and vertically sheer (awesome!) granite dome. Only later did we discover that there was a Welcome/Information Center office on the way to Murphy, and the Forest Service office near there, so we got our detailed topo maps a little late...but we will be back for more!

Thanks again for a lovely clean, cosy cabin and a wonderful vacation stay!

Peaceful Cabin Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week here. It's a nice cabin with fantastic views in a quiet mountainside neighborhood. The master bedroom is in the loft, and there is a bunk room that sleeps six. We had a great week getting out of Florida's heat in the middle of summer. The cabin was very clean and had an adequately stocked kitchen. When we plan our next NC vacation, we'll definitely check to see if this cabin is available. Thank you, Mike and Jackie for being good hosts!

Mountain Cabin Home

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home. Very well decorated and we felt very welcome to a beautiful area.

The cabin home fit our needs and then some. We ventured out on occasion, but loved to come back and relax on the deck to enjoy our surroundings. The glider was wonderful. Mike and Jackie very helpful when we needed information or questions we had regarding cabin and area. Not that far from the town of Murphy and shopping. Look forward to a return trip. We found our spot. Thanks again to Mike and Jackie.

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Spent Labor Day weekend at this cabin. Great views of the morning mist both inside and outside the cabin. Drove through nantahala to hike both Devils courthouse and graveyard fields. Great time was had by all.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our vacation. The cabin had everything we needed and was in a great location. There are plenty of amenities. We went whitewater rafting, zip-lining, mining, and drove to Ruby Falls. The owners were very easy to work with and even suggested places to visit. (There are also tons of brochures in the living room.) I would definitely recommend this property! This just may be a place that we can return to frequently as a get-away. Oh...there were lots of hummingbirds, and we ate fresh apples that were growing in the yard.
