Just a short walk from Lake Hiwassee, with hundreds of miles of shoreline. This lake is abundant with fish and wildlife. The nearby Bear Paw Marina has all of your boating, fishing and rental needs. Our mountain home is surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest and borders the US Forestry Service Area so it's very secluded and peaceful, but also very easy to get to. We have plenty of LEVEL ground for parking extra vehicles or trailers. Only 20 minute drive to downtown Murphy.

You'll enjoy the peace and quiet as you relax out on the wrap around deck and take in the beautiful mountain views. Grill out on the back deck and watch the sun set. Sit around the fire pit and make s'mores with the kids. Our house features three levels of warm and inviting amenities to make your next visit to the wilderness, everything you expected and more.

Our mountain home is also close to the Nantahala Outdoor Center known for world class white water rafting, Deep Creek in Bryson City for tubing, lake Cherokee for fishing and a picnic, the new Andrews/Murphy Airport and historic downtown Murphy for shopping. Don't miss 'Moose Hollow!' Our home is also minutes away from many beautiful motorcycle rides!

                Awwww.... it was so nice to just get away and we loved the peace and quite of the cabin and surrounding woods and nature. The cabin was very nice and comfortable. We just relaxed had everything we needed. Nearby is Murphy with grocery stores and places to eat. We love to stay at different areas in the Smokies each year and this one was great. We saw lots of Turkeys and met some farm life on the road up to the cabin it was fun. Thanks for sharing your home with the city folks.! Jimmy and Marie and family.

                We just returned from an extended weekend at the Smith's cabin and we will definitely go back and for a full week in the future. The cabin is absolutely PERFECT! I am pretty picky and a real neat freak and this cabin was decorated with just the right touches of home with plenty of room to allow you to relax. The pictures on the listing can't begin to give you the full description of this cabin and the charm and space it has to offer. We only had 4 adults with us but next time we will take the grown up kids and their spouses. The view was incredible and even though it was quite chilly, we walked in the quiet evenings and the misty mornings hearing only the leaves on the trees an those crazy turkeys that hung out in the yard each morning. The fire logs were not working upon arrival and with one phone call to the Smiths, the problem was fixed immediately. We travelled south into Helen, GA one day and north to Cherokee and the casino the next day. We were happy to come back each evening to cook dinner, play cards and hang out in the comfort of the cabin. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful mountain home with us. We left you a gift that we found in Cherokee to add to your bear decor. We hope to visit again soon!

                This was by far the nicest cabin I've ever stayed in. There were three levels of this cabin and so much space for everyone. The beds were super comfortable and the view was amazing. I'm already booking out next trip here. The owners are so awesome and friendly. Thank you for the hospitality

                The cabin was just as it looks in the picture. It was very close to both of our rafting events. I would recommend going on the Ocoee river for the best white water rafting experience. We enjoyed our stay at this cabin and would recommend it to others. There was plenty of room for our whole family.

                This is a wonderful cabin and very clean. We had a perfect long weekend and the cabin was close to all attractions we were interested in seeing. Had a great time cooking steak and trout that we caught at Otter Creek Trout Farm~well worth the drive to Topton, NC. Can't wait to come back. Thanks for sharing your delightful home~!

                First off, cabin is much bigger and much nicer than the pics indicate. Very comfortable beds, very clean and well maintained. Good location, you feel secluded enough to satisfy your need for privacy but not so secluded that you are too far from the town of Murphy and all its restaurants and shops. I highly recommend this cabin if western NC is where you want to stay. State lines of Georgia and Tennesee are within short drives if there is something there you want to do on a day trip. Thanks to the owners, my dogs and I loved your place.

                We had a wonderful time in the Smith Cabin. The cabin was well furnished and kitchen is well equipped. The set up was great. There are near-by trails and access to fishing. We would recommend this cabin and hope to visit again. The listing and photos were accurate. The property was clean and well maintained.

                my wife, 2 kids ages 13 and 12, and our small 7lb dog stayed in this nice cabin for 5 days on the last week of March. When we arrived it was snowing. The cabin was very clean, comfortable, and just as beautiful as the pictures. The beds were nice and the towels were very fluffy and soft. The next day we awoke and everything was covered in snow! Being from Florida our kids had never seen snow before so they had a great time. We mostly stayed in the cabin and did not venture out too much except for walking around near the cabin. It was very quiet, nice, and so relaxing. The mountain view was the best. The owner Shelly was easy to communicate with and very pleasant. The cabin had all the necessities supplied. We loved the gas fireplace since you only had to turn the nob to turn it on. How easy is that! Thanks Shelly for sharing your place and a wonderful time!
