About Gini Smith
My mother bought this chalet in the early 90's and it has been a favorite spot for family getaways. It is now being passed down to me and my family. We also have several rental properties in Florida where we we owned and operated a family resort for over 50 years. Making memorable vacations for families is what we do.
Gini Smith purchased this Chalet in 1990

Lovely cabin in the mountains. Had a great time!
A nice place to spend vacation in Murphy, NC
My daughter and I have found this mountain chalet very inviting and cozy. The chalet was very clean and well furnished. It had a very homey feeling! Everything worked great including the gas fireplace and fast WiFi. Great views of the mountain ranges was a big plus. We had a great time in the chalet. Highly recommended!
What a beautiful view! We loved waking up in the morning and seeing the mountain view from our bed!
If you want to relaxing experience, this is the place for you. The view is gorgeous! The cabin was very clean and the beds were comfy. We had a difficult time finding a nice place that was dog friendly and this was perfect for us. We enjoyed long walks down the paved roads with our dog, and he especially enjoyed romping about in the woods. There's a nice park very close to the cabin (Cherokee Recreation area). Which is dog friendly. Murphy doesnt have alot to do in the winter but Blue Ridge, Blairsville and many other towns are very close. We had no problem finding things for the grand kids to do. The casino was fun for the adults and its only 10 minutes away.
Murphy is in the middle of TN and GA, which makes it very convenient.We will be back.
A great place to spend a month in NC
We had a great time sitting in the rockers in the cool mornings on the wonderful deck looking at the Blue Ridge Mts. The cabin was nice and clean when we arrived. I fixed the rollers on one screen door and put on one I found under the house so we could open the sliding doors when it was cool. Other than that every thing was great.
We had a great time at the cabin. It was very clean! Wifi was great, and we enjoyed the fire pit! Views of the mountains in the distance were beautiful and the sunsets made it even better! The host had great communication and was very accommodating for our family escaping from the hurricane. Thanks so much !
Amazing is an understatement!
We will be back very soon. I cannot express enough how much fun we had. This is the perfect location . Beautiful views . I can't stress enough how happy I was there! The house is clean and well taken care of . Very private !! You must rent this!! Words cannot describe the views from inside and outside the house . The pictures are nothing compared to what the house really looks like! I want to go back!! 💗💗💗
