Murphy cabin description

Situated on the beautiful Nottely River, you will find our cabin a relaxing escape. The cabin offers privacy with spectacular views of the Nantahala National Forest and the river. It is located at the end of the road on the river and abuts the forest. The 2 mile drive back to the cabin through the canopy of trees is something you'll remember and enjoy.

Views from the wrap-around screened porch are beautiful. Open the french doors in the master bedroom for the relaxing sounds of the river at night and great views during the day. Evenings by the campfire can produce some very fun and memorable moments. You can also step off the bank and test your skills in the river that is home to a variety of fish including browns, rainbows and native brookies. You'll be amazed at the pristine setting and you will likely be the only person(s) on the river.

For those who enjoy a more active vacation, there's golfing, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, boating, horseback riding, hiking trails, mountain biking trails, and ATV trails, all within a few minutes drive of this quiet retreat on the river. You can put your kayak in up river from the cabin on the 'release' and enjoy a fun 20 minute ride back to the cabin, or just tube the river when not on the release and enjoy an hour and a half ride back to the cabin.

It’s secluded, yet convenient. Although we’re at the 'end of the road', it’s only a short ten to fifteen minute drive to Murphy, the center of everything in this part of Western North Carolina! Located between the Ocoee River in Tennessee, and the Nantahala River in North Carolina where whitewater Olympic contenders have trained. Here you will find a town reminiscent of days gone by with a very walkable main street with enough cafes, restaurants, and shops to keep you interested. Side-by-side flea markets close by on weekends, a flea market in the city on Tuesdays, and even a downtown farmers market on Saturdays. This is just a beautiful area to travel the back roads and create your own adventure!

Drive the Cherohala Skyway (rivals the Blue Ridge Parkway for unobstructed long-range views). Ride the 'Tail of the Dragon' through Deal's Gap. Visit the Joyce Kilmore Memorial Forest or the John Campbell Folk School for classes in folk art, crafts, contra-dancing, blacksmithing, bluegrass music, etc. Or just take a drive through a country-side replete with post card views.

Daytrips: Blue Ridge, Georgia has wonderful downtown shops and you must visit the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant for a wonderful meal.

Ellijay, Georgia - is the Apple Capital of Georgia - travel along Highway 52 to visit apple barns. Close by is Amicalola Falls - 729 feet of waterfalls, the largest east of the Mississippi.

Dahlonega, Georgia - has shopping at its best and home of The Smith House - a family-style restaurant that is awesome!

Cherokee, North Carolina - has the casino and you can trout fish on the Cherokee reservation land for a nominal price.

Asheville, North Carolina - home of The Biltmore House that is a must see!

Bryson City, North Carolina - Make reservations through Great Smoky Mountain Railroad for a beautiful trip along the Nantahala River and visit the River's End Restaurant for great food.

Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee - visit Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, as well as many outlet stores. Gatlinburg has the seven mile loop full of craft stores.
