"We were able to get this beautiful place on the spur of the moment on our way home from Asheville. The cabin is so homey,clean and peaceful! It looks just like the photos! We had a rainy night the first night there and being able to sit on the back porch with the rain hitting the tin roof was so relaxing and romantic! You can not see the pond during this time of year but it is only a short walk thru the woods. I cant tell you much about that part cause it is not our thing but i did read in the owners guest book about the fun that many people had with the canoe. The only drawback we found was the driveway. The cabin sits below the road so you have to get a little running start but we made it fine with our car. Bob senior the owners dad is close by and is willing to help with any questions. There are nice resturants nearby in Blue Ridge but make reservations first! Would recommend Brothers copper kettle in Ducktown and Shoebooties in Murphy. We had a wonderful time there and would recommend it to anyone who needs to get away and relax or a great place to come home to after sightseeing or rafting! Thanks Bob!"

"My family and I came for the fourth of July weekend, and while the weather was quite rainy we had a fun time!
The cabin is very beautiful, definitely rustic with all of the wood interior...and it fit what we were looking for with our mountain trip. It was very clean and all of the furnishings were provided as well (wi-fi, satellite, all kitchen needs supplied, etc.). The kids loved the two separate bunk beds. With my three children and my oldest daughters friend the bunk beds worked out perfectly. The pool table was a treat as well during all the rain, so it was nice teaching my kids how to play.
Outside there was space between this cabin and the next door cabin, so no worries about feeling bunched up to the neighbors. There isn't a cabin across the street but instead the beautiful mountain view.
The town of Murphy was great. There is a good mexican restaurant on the outskirts of town, and a good share of restaurants overall if you aren't looking to cook.
One thing worth mentioning is the lake access. To our surprise we found that there was no sandy area for us to place our towels and beach gear. Essentially to get into the water the transition went from woods to water. If you are not looking to swim at the cabin then this is a moot point. But for us, we found ourselves going to the nearest beach we found 40 minutes away.
Overall we enjoyed the place a lot. The owner was responsive throughout the booking process as I had a lot of questions. Shelli also was prompt with questions I had while we were there too. All in all I would recommend this place."

"Was looking for a place for peace and quiet, and we found it here. We are looking to relocate and this was the perfect place to get our feet wet. The flea markets yielded some great finds. The people were friendly and found many of them were from our state. What can I say about the stars, wishing we had the telescope. The only drawback was that it didn't have a large front porch where we could sit to watch and listens to the sounds of nature and listen to it rain. Overall we would stay here again."
