Murphy house description

'LAST BEND LODGE' A PREMIUM WATERFRONT HOME IN THE WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA SMOKY MOUNTAINS. PLEASE SEE 'AVAILABILITY CALENDAR' BELOW FOR OPEN DATES.

Last Bend Lodge, on the Scenic Banks of the Beautiful Nottely River, is so named because The Nottely performs a hairpin bend right in front of The Lodge, The Last Bend in the River before it disappears into the Vast Natahala National Forest!

Several miles downstream The River flows into huge, pristine Lake Hiawassee which has over 150 miles of shoreline, 90% of which is unspoiled National Forest Land... Open to ALL! The Lodge is situated at 1500 feet elevation and within the area are peaks in excess of 5000 feet. The River sweeps up from the Southwest, executes its turn in front of The Lodge and bubbles off to the Southeast. The view from the massive, elevated deck is just spectacular.

Last Bend Lodge was constructed in 2003 and is bordered by The River in front and The National Forest and our other home, River's Edge Cabin, on the other sides. Rushing Branch Creek tumbles down the mountain and into The River between the two Homes. The Master Suite features French Doors which open to a private, screened section of the deck overlooking The Creek. Yes, this is a private, secluded and very unique site and yet it is easily accessible, with no steep or precipitous driving, and not at all remote.

Convenient Access and Excellent Privacy... The Best of Both Worlds! We are located in Cherokee County, North Carolina (The Westernmost County in the State) about seven miles west of the Bustling Mountain Town of Murphy, North Carolina which is also the County Seat. Murphy has a Junior College, a substantial Medical Center and a Regional-size Wal-Mart as well as many other dining and shopping options.

The World Renowned John C. Campbell School of Folk Arts is a must see. They welcome you to walk right into the classes which range from Blacksmithing to Blue Grass Music.

Come to Last Bend Lodge. Always peaceful and quiet of urban noise. Cool in the Spring and Summer, when the birds are singing and the fish are jumping and snug in the Fall and Winter, when the hills and valleys are ablaze with color and the peaks are capped snow white. Hike, bike, fish, antique, sightsee, and all of the other many activities... Or just sit on the porch and listen to The River Flow By.

*Pets are welcome for a $50 per pet fee. There is also a $50 per pet extra (refundable with no damage) security deposit. We offer a professionally constructed, covered & lockable kennel.

*Last Bend Lodge is 'Smoke Free'. You may smoke on the porch but absolutely not inside.

PS: If Smaller, More Economical Accomodations would suit you better please checkout our River's Edge Cabin. This Snug 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Home is located right next door to Last Bend Lodge & is also right on The River. There is a picture of River's Edge included in this listing however for complete details please see VRBO Listing # 7482.

PSS: Carl, Our Neighbor & Property Manager & Your Host while at Last Bend Lodge or River's Edge Cabin, has just finished contruction on two Brand New and very cute Rental Cottages. They are right on the River and very close (easy, 2 minute walk) to Last Bend & River's Edge so if we are unable to accomodate you we will put you in touch with Carl.
