I bought this cabin as a second home when I lived in Atlanta. After I retired, I bought a home in nearby Marble, on 24 acres. I decided to keep the cabin as rental property. I wanted to enjoy the creek, hot tub, and other unique qualities of the property and also share it with others. It is still my favorite place to go to enjoy nature and relax.
Belinda purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Belinda chose Murphy
Murphy is close to many areas of interest and is easily accessible year-round by auto, private plane or motorcycle. This beautiful, peaceful area, situated in the Nantahala Region of the Great Smokey Mountains, is unique in its rich history, serenity and beauty. This area is a well-kept secret and a very special place to visit.
What makes this Cabin unique
You can dig your own worms and enjoy Trout fishing in the back yard (wading boots and fishing equipment at cabin). Grill your catch just feet away from the creek and eat your catch on the covered deck next to the creek. Then relax in the large hot tub by the creek or sit around a camp-fire and roast marshmallows. Kids can splash in the creek and pan for gold (supplies available at cabin).

The cabin was very nice and spacious.
We enjoyed the view from the deck and listening to the rushing water was very relaxing. We would stay there again if we ever go back to Murphy.
Had a great time! The people of the town of Murphy were very friendly and helpful with everything.
Had a great time.
Perfect Vacation Place
My husband and daughters rented Belinda's cabin for our Thanksgiving 2016 vacation. So glad we did. This cabin is perfect, it's exactly what you see in the photos. Awesome waterfront, HUGE deck with table and chairs, comfortable furnishings, nice sized bedrooms and bathrooms, open kitchen so you don't miss out on anything, etc. I could go on and on. Loved how there were boots in the laundry room for my daughter to go walking through the stream. Though we spent all but Thanksgiving Day away from the cabin during the day, nights were super cozy with the fireplace and it threw off an ample amount of heat. I highly recommend. Thank you, Belinda, for letting my family stay at your cabin. Also want to mention that we met the husband and wife management team and they were so friendly and helpful. The husband even drove to the cabin to help us with the TV when my daughter pushed a wrong button and couldn't program the TV correctly. All around perfect 10 experience.
Peace and Quite
Amazing cabin. Very clean and comfortable. We spend 5 nights and wish we had booked it for longer. The cabin has everything you need and much more.
The creek is worth the price of the rental. We had no luck fishing, only caught 2 small trout but I am not much of a fisherman. It was really peaceful just to sit in the backyard by the creek. Our 2 small dogs really enjoyed the water.
Thank you so much for your review. Since I have a guest book in the cabin, I do not solicit additional reviews. When I do get one, it is much appreciated. (I have found that providing a guest book is a better, more personal way for my guests to communicate with each other. It allows for more information than a posted review – things they have done, favorite local places, etc.)
We stayed at this cabin for spring break, which coincided with my daughters birthday. Everything was warm and welcoming upon arrival. The beds were a little firm for my tastes, but my mother loved it. The creek was freezing cold in March, but that was to be expected, and didnt stop us from dipping our toes in it, or my dog from chasing her ball in it. We were also lucky enough to have snow on our first full day there, which was a first for my daughter. It was less than a 1/2 inch, and was gone by noon.
We also had a four wheel drive vehicle, which was wonderful for exploring. Found a few different waterfalls that were great for hiking to.
The cabin itself had everything we needed, washer and dryer with laundry soap, dishes, condiments (ones that weren't there, we purchased and left for the next guest), extra towels for shower, and some specifically for the hot tub. And even a little basket of goodies upon arrival. We couldn't get the fire place working, but didn't call as we used the fire pit most evenings. We plan on coming back yearly for different occasions (Summer, Christmas, etc)
Comforts of home plus lovely amenities
This cabin is ideal for a relaxing getaway. Just bring your clothes and food because this place is ready for your visit. We had a campfire each night, and enjoyed some relaxation in the hot tub. Nothing like listening to a rushing stream while you relax in the hot tub or the hammock with a glass of wine.
We enjoyed some local restaurants- Parson's Pub, Murphy Chop House, Shoebooties. Had some beautiful local drives to see the fall colors. We brought our dog along, and she did cause some damage to some wood trim. We reported it and the owners were understanding.
This cabin is a few miles from Murphy on a winding road, but that suited our purposes to a tee. We went to spend time together, fish a little, sight-see a little, but mostly just relax.
There is a rental house next door. We only saw people coming and going, and never had any problems with noise.
This was my second stay at this cabin. I hope to return.
Whitewater Rafting, world-class Motorcycling and a Casino!
