Murphy house description
**RIVER'S EDGE CABIN** COMPLETELY RENOVTED AND FUNRISHED IN 2006. A PREMIUM WATERFRONT LOCATION IN THE WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA SMOKY MOUNTAINS.
RESERVATIONS ARE "BY THE WEEK" FROM "SATURDAY TO SATURDAY". PLEASE CHECK "AVAILABILITY CALENDAR" BELOW FOR OPEN TIME.
River's Edge Cabin is in Cherokee County, North Carolina. The Western Most County in the state... Mountain Country! This Cedar Home was built in 1980, has two bedrooms, one bath and is located 8 miles west of Murphy, which nestles between the Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains. Murphy is the County Seat and is a bustling city with all the dining, shopping and health conveniences you might require.
Located on the Scenic Banks of the Beautiful Nottely River the Cabin is situated at 1500 feet elevation and within the area are mountain peaks in excess of 5000 feet! The River sweeps up from the Southeast, performs a hairpin turn in front of the Cabin and bubbles off to the Northeast. The view from the elevated deck overlooking the river is the definition of panoramic!
Rushing Branch Creek cuts through the property and the path along the Creek offers a secluded hike into the vast, Nantahala National Forest which begins right behind the Cabin. Several miles downstream the Nottley flows into huge, pristine Lake Hiawassee with over 180 miles of shoreline 90% of which is unspoiled National Forest Land... Open to All!
Come to River's Edge Cabin. 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. Come once and you'll come again. Call soon because River's Edge books up fast every year.

Quality Vacation Property
Quality Vacation Property
River's Edge Cabin was an outstanding place to vacation for a week. The property description and photos are very accurate. The accommodations were clean, stylish, and comfortable. We ate all meals but three for the week at the cabin. The view from the porch was outstanding. Access to the National Forest was right next to the property. Unlimited access to the Nottley River within 25 yards of the house for fly fishing. Cherokee County had great site seeing and nature to observe. Murphy was a short 15 minute drive to access groceries, restaurants, shopping, and the sporting goods stores. We met Daniel Boone (a descendent of Daniel Boone) at Appalachian Outfitters and hired him as a fly fishing guide for one day, his company is Nantahala Fly Fishing, I highly recommend starting any fly fishing week with him to get the right flies on the water. Doyle's Restaurant in Murphy had great entertainment and dining. Any questions we had about the property were quickly answered by the owners. The owners are military friendly! This house is great for a couples getaway or a family with no more than two children. We plan on another visit to this property.

Our trip to Murphy was fantastic, largely due to staying at the cabin. It is SO GORGEOUS right there on the river. The cabin is darling with everything that we needed. Very comfortable and clean. The owners were very accomodating and helpful prior to the trip, adn while we were there, the property managers were a wealth of information about things to do in the area. My family and I can't wait to return.

This is the cutest cottage and a beautiful location! We hiked, fished, and enjoyed the beautiful river that rushes by directly in front of the house. The cottage itself is darling! Clean, well furnished and decorated perfectly. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking to relax and enjoy a quiet, peaceful retreat.

We arrived at the cabin to find very dirty. The smell was very unpleasant. It didnt take long to figure out it was because there was a dead mice in the kitchen trashcan and a dead scorpian in the mixing bowl in the kitchen cabinet. There were hundreds of fruit/sewer flies hovering above the sink which we never could get rid of. Before the mouse died he chewed up toilet paper, candy wrappers, and candy and had it strewn along with his droppings all throughout the cabin, including in the couch cushions and in the bed. The dishwasher was broken, and the several of the railings on the porch were either loose or broken. The last and final straw that sent us packing early, was finding a live copperhead snake in our bed room. We have still not been given a refund for this horific experience. But we are hoping for the people who read these reviews it will help keep them safe. My suggestion is for you and your family to find someplace else to stay that is clean and safe. We have had nothing but wonderful experience with our summer trips to N.C. for the past four summers, that is until this one. I would not recommend this property to friends or relatives. The property was not clean and well maintained.

Owner response: This story is full of exaggerations and inaccuracies. We were not there so some of the description may be true. Our website does not have ANY misrepresentations and we have given them a full refund which we promised without asking any questions about the veracity of their story. Here are some facts to consider: 1. The first phone call I received reported rats in the cabin. Rats are located in Paris and New Orleans and not the mountains of North Carolina. We have an extermination contract, but the cabin is in the mountains next to the national forest and two rivers. There are small field mice which sometimes enter the cabin. The exterminator visited and treated the cabin after they left. All the reports she listed were about the mice that were already dead. 2. The gardener found and killed a snake on the property prior to their arrival but reported it to them for their safety if there may be 2 snakes. The renter informed us that they keep snakes and they told the gardener that they could step on a copperhead snake and then kill it with no problem. The exterminator said that was no sign of entry and we believe they may have killed the snake outside and brought it in. 3. From the beginning they were calling us looking for various refunds before anything really happened. 4. We did a background check and found multiple non-driving arrests on their record. Also, they live in a very low priced house in Florida. 5. Rather than accepting our apology and refund for circumstances over which we have no control, they continue to send us emails asking for more apologies and asking us to wire money to them immediately. They may have had some of the experiences they described, but we did everything in our power to fix it immediately, We think they were just looking for a free vacation.
