Murphy cabin description

Tired of overcrowded freeways and the stress of everyday living? The Bear Hutt is one of the best places to sit and relax in private after a day of playing and exploring what the beautiful rivers and mountains have to offer. The Bear Hutt comes with a fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV with satellite, DVD player, gas fireplace, WIFI, outdoor grill and a fire pit. There is plenty of room for parking and to turn your vehicle around if you are trailering your motorcycle. The wood furniture and mirrors in the cabin were made by the well known artist, Jeff Hutt.

The Bear Hutt is private and located between Murphy and Andrews. It is accessed from a 1/2 mile well maintained gravel road which is off Highway 141.

The Bear Hutt is conveniently located near rafting sites, restaurants, horseback riding, Smokey Mountain National Park, gem mining, pottery studios, antiquing, fishing, hiking, golfing, shopping, biking, canoeing and scenic parkways and skyways. The John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown is 20 minutes away and has summer concerts and fall festivals.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We live in the Florida Keys and fell in love with western North Carolina. We travel back and forth from our conch house to the Bear Hutt as often as we can. Some say we have the best of both worlds! We hope you enjoy the Bear Hutt as much as we do and come back to visit over and over again.

                  Why the Owner Chose Murphy:
                  The Bear Hutt is located close to whitewater rafting, horesback riding, the John Campbell Folk School, and is just a beautiful ride through the Nantahala Gorge. It is close to everything this beautiful area has to offer.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  The Bear Hutt and setting is very relaxing. Our favorite activities are building fires in our firepit, hiking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, taking our motorcycle on scenic drives and just exploring all that the area has to offer.
