Murphy cottage description

Located directly off the 4 Lane Highway so the curvy roads are an option not a necessity! Although, we're in the path of some of the best motorcycle roads in the entire United States!

We'll loan you a fishing pole, canoe and a cooler! But, you're responsible for your fishing license. Stiles Daylily Farm rental units are the perfect place to end a day of exploring the mountains and rivers of Western North Carolina, Tennessee or Georgia! Stay for less than the cost of a hotel room and get 2xs the space and amenities! Perfect for those who want to escape to the mountains and still have money to spend.

Two of the Cabins are nestled in the edge of the woods that provide a cozy & serene atmosphere with lots of shade & wildlife so you can explore or just relax in the rockers on the porch overlooking the daylily fields. If you have Verizon cell phone you should have full service at the cabins & reception is good for most other cellular carriers too. Our locations are ideal bases of operations for day trips to the surrounding area for fishing several nearby beautiful trout streams, you’ll want to enjoy white water rafting, hiking, make trips to waterfalls, etc. Then end your day in a KING size bed.

Murphy grocery stores and restaurants are within 5 miles, some are open 24/7. There is a wonderful Italian Deli one mile from our Farm. 5 minute drive to Murphy and you will be able to travel to Blairsville and Blue Ridge GA and Copperhill TN, Andrews and Hayesville NC all less than a twenty minute drive.

It’s perfect for couples, private and conveniently located 4 miles west of Murphy, North Carolina in a rural community just off US Hwy 64. Rentals are accessed from a well-maintained road off of US Hwy 64 West of Murphy. Road is accessible with standard 2-wheel drive car or truck. This is a great property for Motorcycle enthusiast with plenty of room for your trailer. Make it a group vacation and rent 2 cabins on the farm during the same week and get a 5% discount.

The cabins are furnished; including kitchen utensils, towels, sheets, and blankets. You can go to the cabin with your clothes and toothbrush and live comfortably for a while. The farm is remote enough to feel secluded, yet close to everything.

A great place to unwind and observe deer, fox, coyotes, beaver, woodchucks, squirrels. Occasionally bears pass through the woods. Each cabin has its own bird feeder, plus in spring and summer a hummingbird feeder. You will be amazed at the number and varieties of birds on our farm, If you enjoy awakening to the sound of birds in the morning, then this is the place for you! We have seen the following birds: cranes, geese, ducks, finch, woodpeckers, hawks, blue bird, blue jays, wild turkeys, and king fishers. Bring a camera the photos will be fantastic.

It can be a favorite vacation and at a price that is affordable, even for a struggling family, in these difficult economic times. You may decide you have found a treasure and look forward to returning again and again. While summer is awesome, just imagine how incredible it would be to come in the fall when the leaves are changing. No matter what the season, you won't be disappointed!

The view from the front porch of the cabin is serene. You have privacy, but are not completely secluded. Relax out on the porch and watch for the deer or wild turkey to walk by. If you’re too invigorated by the mountain air to relax get on your mountain bike and experience our Mountain Bike trail directly behind two of the cabins.

Situated in a little valley at approximately 1500 feet elevation and looking out at the local area are mountain peaks in excess of 5000 feet. The mist rises in the morning like smoke and the sun cascades over the hills in the afternoon into a tranquil evening in the mountains. At night it is so beautiful to be able to look up in the sky and see millions of bright stars. The daylily farm is cool in the Spring, when the birds are singing and the fish are jumping. Summer brings the hundreds of daylily blooms sparkling with lightening bugs. Fall, when the hills and valleys are ablaze with color, no need to drive to Vermont. It’s snug in the Winter, when the hilltops are capped in frost or snow!

Located on the main thoroughfare between 2 rivers, so about 20 minutes in either direction to rafting sites on the Nantahala and Ocoee Rivers. 20 minutes East to Nantahala and 20 West to Ocoee. Restaurants, horseback riding, railroad rides, boating, antiquing, fishing, hiking, golfing, shopping, rafting, canoeing, bird watching, the Appalachian Trail, and enjoying the beautiful Smoky Mountains all within 5 to 30 minutes. Tsali mountain bike trails, GSM Railway, Appalachian Trail, Waterfalls, 1 to 1.5 hour easy day trips to, Cherokee Indian Reservation & Casino, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Gatlinburg, Smoky Mountain National Park, Pigeon Forge, Helen GA & Biltmore House. Activity guide available in cabin and in advance. If you like to shoot there's an excellent gun range only 5 miles from the cabin, (only 2 miles from the other location) you'll see signs for the National Forest shooting range - $2 and shoot all day long.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: The picture is of my husband and me camping at one of our favorite sites on Lake Santeetlah. It's located near Robbinsville where I grew up. We have a teenage daughter who still loves to join our little family camping trips. I drove the 'Tail of the Dragon' as a teenager and thought nothing of it, because it was in my back door. Now it is amazingly popular nationally! David and I started the Daylily Farm in 2004 and have been growing ever since. Growing bigger, growing older and growing crazier! We considered naming it 'Blooming Idiot's Daylily Farm.' We added the rental business in 2011 after we noticed how much a lot of our customers enjoyed lingering on the Farm after purchasing daylilies. So, now if they have trouble making up their minds which flowers to buy they can rent the little cabin and take all night to decide, literally “sleep on it.” It's my little retirement plan. I grew up here in the mountains and moved away, realizing quickly that I left one of the most beautiful parts of the world, so I moved back! We love to travel but we love to come home just as much! As the owners we live on the property and pride ourselves in having clean and comfortable accommodations.

                      Why the Owner Chose Murphy:
                      Live here... love it. We enjoy sharing the beauty of the farm and mountains with our guests. I love the mountains or the beach; I don't want to live anywhere in between. In the mountains everyone can enjoy the view from any where on any highway road or trail. At the beach you can only get that experience right on the beach so I prefer the mountains. Everyday on our way to work or school my daughter and I marvel at how beautiful our mountains are.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We have Mountain Bike trails and hiking/walking paths for our guests only. 100 acre old Family Farm, 3 acres of daylilies, 2 of which are sale areas. We're in the perfect location to enjoy what 3 states have to offer. Go to the Lost Sea in Tennessee one day and go rafting or zip lining the next. Visit Cherokee Harrah’s Casino after lunch and be back in time to see the sunset. Visit Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest and return via the Cherohala Skyway on your fourth day. We’re only 4 miles to the Georgia state line so make a day trip to Vogel State Park, Blairsville, GA - A great place to view the change of the seasons and Trahlyta Falls. The Park is located at the base of Blood Mountain in the Chattahoochee National Forest. The Park offers hiking, picnicking and swimming in the twenty-two acre Lake Trahlyta. Then travel on to Brasstown Bald near Hiawassee, GA - The highest point in Georgia (4,784') and the Deep South with spectacular views of four states from the observation tower. Hiking, cycling, and picnicking available. Fun things to do when staying @ The Farm Although our farm is located in North Carolina it is centrally located for exploring the natural beauty, historic landmarks, and annual festivals of the North Georgia Mountains and East Tennessee. Whether planning a romantic getaway, family vacation, or special event there is an activity to fit your lifestyle. Whether you want a laid-back kind of day or adventure there are plenty of options. Like wine-tasting at the local vineyards, waterfall tours, antiquing, arts and crafts shows, and farmers markets. For the adventurous, there is biking, hiking, trout fishing, boating, kayaking, whitewater rafting, and motorcycling to name a few.
