Wonderful chalet!! The home was impeccably maintained and many extras available for renters use! The evening sunsets were priceless and the walk down to the main road each morning was a great way to get the heartrate going!! Great location to visit the many beautiful natural settings in and around Murphy! River Walk and Shoebooties in Murphy are MUSTS! Nice neighbors also - except for the two dogs that were loose and scared the pooooo out of me and my small dog! Many thanks to the owners!!

Great cabin, great owners.
Great cabin, great owners.
The cabin (chalet, I guess) is just as advertised, and is excellent. We slept up in the loft, and the kids (4 and 6yrs old) slept in the downstairs room. The loft is quite roomy, but felt even roomier with the lovely view of the mountains through the wall of windows. Communication with the owners was easy and prompt. Claudia is a wealth of information, and very responsive. We arrived near midnight, and had difficulties with the electronic lock. I felt bad for calling her, but Claudia picked right up and was very helpful and nice even though it was obvious we had woken her up. A tip about the lock--if the door hasn't been opened for a while and you're having problems unlocking it, try quite gently pushing/pulling on the door as you operate the lock. I think the bolt gets pushed up against the jamb and needs to be "unstuck" so the little motor can pull the bolt out. We spent most of our days hiking in the Nantahala National Forest (Fires Creek area, if my memory serves), and spent some time at the John C. Campell Folk School. We mostly ate in the cabin or on the trail. The kitchen is fully stocked and nicely laid out. The driveway is a bit steep. Not a problem, but I can imagine it might be tricky in the snow or ice. Overall, a VERY good experience. My 6-year old and I chose this chalet on VRBO. We were wavering between several, but she picked this one. We're all glad--it turned out great.

Owner response: Thanks for the great review Welch Family! The tip about the door is much appreciated and I will check into making that a non issue in the near future. I enjoyed working with you and am so glad you had a great time while in our mountain home!
We just returned from spending a lovely week in this property. It was so nice to enjoy Thanksgiving in this setting with my family. Everything was as described...very clean, cozy and homey. The kitchen had absolutely everything I needed to prepare dinner for my family. We enjoyed sunsets on the deck, the local flea market and the town of Murphy as well as travelling further afield. Claudia goes above and beyond to make sure that you have all the information you could need and are comfortable...great owners to deal with! Would definitely recommend to friends or family.

Our week in Murphy NC
Our week in Murphy NC
I found the listing for this cabin by chance and we are so glad we did. The cabin was beautifully situated, very clean and stocked with essentials. The view was magnificent and when we were there full of fall color. It was central to the NC, GA and TN places we wished to visit and we spent several days not leaving the mountaintop but walking and sitting on the deck. We have already sent the link to this cabin to friends and we will continue to do so. We received a welcome text to make sure all was well and felt that if we needed anything that Claudia would try to make it happen. We would definitely make a return trip.

Owner response: Thank you! We enjoyed having you visit our home in the Mountains! We hope you will return and recommend our place to friends and family!
The facility was comfortable and well furnished. All you need is groceries because the owner has provided all the little necessities needed for a short vacation. As mentioned by many, the sunsets were beautiful. Murphy is a small town but has everything needed for a pleasant vacation. A great Ingles Grocery Store, Lowes, and plenty of Flea Markets.

Our Stay in Murphy was great. Claudia the owner was great, she provided us with a lot of information that made our trip a success. The Chalet was very well maintained and cleaned. She has everything that you would find in your own house in this Chalet. All the information that she provided to us was correct and very useful. Even though we did not get to see snow, we did encounter some heavy rain storms and she was nice enough to check on us to make sure we made it safely. We traveled to Franklin, and its a nice city to visit. It has a great place for kids called Fun Factory. The waterfalls around Murphy and adjacent cities are very pretty and worth the trip to go and see. The view of the mountains were priceless, and this Chalet is so warm and cozy. I would recommend this Chalet and I look forward to visiting it again.

Relax or not...the choice is yours!
Relax or not...the choice is yours!
Claudia made getting in and finding stuff to do easy. The chalet is beautiful, spacious and well decorated. No need for a bike for cardio....just run the hill daily and you are set! Lots of things to do in Murphy and the surrounding areas. Try Highlands for the waterfalls, Bryson City for tubing, and points south for Kayaking at Rolling Thunder, rafting the middle Ocoee with NOC, zip-lining in the canopy with N. GA canopy tours, and hiking the nearby A.T.! Lots of beautiful waterfalls including Sliding Rock in Pisgah National Forest. Remember to wear shorts and a t-shirt as the water is freezing and you will tear up your bathing suit. Not feeling adventurous? Enjoy sunrises and sets on the porch and watching the birds come to the feeders. Wednesday nights is karaoke at Chevelle's in town. The shrimp was awesome and the guys liked the wings. The Chop House in town was also very good. We hope you enjoy your time at this cabin as much as we enjoyed ours. PS: Bring games for the evenings and secretly unscrew the satelite dish! Hahaha! Tell him it must be cloud cover! :O)

About the owner: We are the Bush Family from Cape Coral Florida. Our only son is a Florida Gator Grad! We are originally from NE Ohio but have lived in Florida for over 27 years. Our goal is to move to Murphy in the coming years. This small town offers friendly folks, a great hospital, and all the shopping one needs! We own and run a small auto body repair shop in Fort Myers Florida. We do light collision but our passion is restoration of the classics! We run to Murphy whenever time allows to enjoy our home. The peace and quiet is a welcome state of mind!
Why the Owner Chose Murphy:
We love Murphy and the friendliness of the good people of the area. It's a slower pace and a handshake still means something. We hope to retire to this community in the coming years. We have owned and sold 7 or 8 land lots in this area and came to realize exactly what we wanted in a home. No road noise and that long western view. Nothing beats a fabulous sunset at the end of a long fun filled day!
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
It's so peaceful! We love the view of the mountains from the deck and the quiet of the woods. Our lives are hectic and this place offers a get away from all the daily stresses and trials. We are just a day trip away from some great places like Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and just 2 hours from Atlanta. Gem mine, white water raft, boat,or shop, it's all in this area of Western North Carolina. But some days,I just like to sit and listen to the birds chirp and watch the squirrels play in the trees. Watch for the Air Force fly boys! every now and then a fighter jet will come and go so fast and so low you won't even see then but you'll hear them!
