Murphy cabin description

This 2 BR / 2 BA Chalet greets you with open arms and charming comfort. Once inside you will be welcomed with an absolutely breathtaking view of the Great Smoky Mountains. Situated just above the Hiawassee River, this home provides wonderful sunrises and incredible evenings watching the stars and listening to the roar of the river below. Forget all your worries; come relax at Sher-ron the view.

This 1200 sq foot home has been completely remodeled and updated with solid Oak wood floors, Island kitchen with new appliances, gas fireplace, WiFi, Satellite TV, lots of deck space including a new 10x15 deck with a six person hit tub and all the other necessities of today's living. We are far enough out to enjoy the true tranquility of the mountains, but close enough to the Norman Rockwell town of Murphy to enjoy all the amenities and activities this quaint little town offers.

Whatever your flair for adventure- Golfing, Mountain Biking, Canoeing, Zipline tours, White water rafting, Fishing, Hiking the Appalachian trail or Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest in Robbinsville, Harrah's casino gambling, Great Smoky Mountain Railroad excursions, riding some of the best motorcycle routes in the east, Touring the local Vineyards or The Folk Lore school, or just shopping for that special antique – It all awaits you just minutes away.

              White water rafting either raft the Nantahala or the Ocoee River sight of the 1996 Olympics. Some the best motorcycle riding on the east coast, Cherohala Skyway, Moonshiners 28 and of course the tail of the dragon with 318 turns in 11 miles. All very close to this beautiful location.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Sherry and Ron are originally from Kentucky, we were high school sweethearts and have been together for going on 30 years. After 20 years of Military life and raising 2 kids we felt that we needed to have a retreat for ourselves. We currently reside in Summerville SC, we love the small town atmosphere and have our careers. Sherry works for Chevrolet and Ron works for Harley-Davidson. Both are retail positions so having time to get away is important. This place is awesome. We looked for nearly 3 months to find something that we could go to and completely relax and forget the daily grind... and we found it at sher-ron the view. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

              Why the Owner Chose Murphy:
              After months of looking it was easy... The View is truly a Million Dollar View!!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              The entire home has been renovated. Solid oak wood flooring, upgraded facilities, newly installed 10x15 private deck with a six person hot tub, and the overall comfort level set this home apart from so many other places that we viewed. The location is on a dead end road with little to no traffic. Sitting on the porch and viewing Wayah Bald almost 60 miles away and hearing the rushing Hiawasee River below is so relaxing and tranquil, it is hard to leave when it is time to go. As secluded as this place seems to be, we are only 5 miles from the town of Murphy. Murphy truly is a Norman Rockwell experience, but the overall feel is something you don't find in a small town. Great high end dining at the Chop House to good home cooking at Brothers to oversize servings at Chevelles or just your basic fast food chains, Murphy offers it all... there is so much to do here it is nearly impossible to list it all. Exemples: White Water Rafting, Kayaking, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Ziplining, Museums, Shopping, Vineyards, Antiquing, Swimming, Canoeing, Golfing and the list goes on... by far the best motorcycle riding on the east coast including the famous 'Tail of the Dragon' 318 turns in 11 miles just 30 minutes away... I would also suggest the Cherohala skyway - its elevation of nearly 6500 feet provides great views and great riding.
