About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This riverfront, cedar log home with nearby lake access offers a view tempting you to fall into your surroundings and to relax. The location of the home is great if you just want to get away from it all or if you are an adventurer seeking white-water rafting, hiking, canoeing, and off-road ATV trails.

The two-story, cedar log home offers three bedrooms (two queen-size beds, two twin beds, and a queen-size sleeper sofa), two full baths, and a great room with a rock fireplace, kitchen, and dining room.

This three bedroom, two bath home offers a large wrap-around deck for your enjoyment.

The log home is situated on approximately 7.5 acres, but is surrounded by hundreds of acres just waiting to be explored by foot, mountain bike, or ATV. Within walking distance you will find our private entrance, with picnic table, to a lake stocked with all kinds of fish including bass, trout, and perch. This tranquil lake has ducks and geese, and is great for canoeing.

About Bobbi Schulte

We have lived 'in the city' all of our lives (Ed lived in New York State, then Tampa, Florida, prior to moving to Miami, Florida and I was born and live in Miami, Florida). Our dream was to find a place in a small, but wonderful, area. We looked in several areas for many years, including Murphy, but didn't find the 'magic place'. We decided to return to Murphy 5 years after our first brief visit. When we drove back in, we knew we were right in coming back. It was a moment that changed our lives. We didn't know it then, but it has. Our son has moved to the area because of the peace and beauty he found here and 3 of our friends are now our neighbors. We have all found something special here. We can't really describe it, but we can certainly feel it!

Bobbi Schulte purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Bobbi Schulte chose Smoky Mountains

We bought this home because we were looking for 'the perfect place'. We found it! We wanted peace, tranquility and beauty, but it had to feel 'good'. The moment we walked in, we knew we had found everything we had been looking for. Our home is more than a place to stay. We respect the fact that it is, also, a home for wildlife and have tried to maintain a safe haven for the beautiful things nature has provided in this area. Our dock over the river offers a peaceful escape from everything or a chance to catch trout! The lake is quiet and is the morning 'home' to ducks and geese. After a day of hiking, biking, white water rafting, ZIP lining or enjoying watersports on the nearby lake, it truly is a 'home' to return to and unwind.

What makes this cabin unique

Our home is 'easy'. It is 1 1/2 to 2 hours from several 'big cities', but is in a wonderful 'small town'. There are no 'strangers' in Murphy. We are on 7 1/2 acres in a valley on the Nottely River. Being in our home, sitting on the deck or on our dock on the river makes everything 'right'. Looking around and seeing the natural beauty allows you to put everything in life in perspective. We truly are fortunate to have found this magical place. Everyone who has chosen our home in which to spend their special time agrees. You don't stay in our home, your experience it!

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cabin in a beautiful setting. It is within a community of excellent properties with enough distance apart to feel in the woods but close enough to walk to neighbors. The upper porch is a great hangout to observe the wildlife and particularly a wide variety of bird species - bring the binocs! Inside - all very comfortable, equipped, and well maintained with special owner touches. It was the perfect spot for observing the solar eclipse but can imagine that it would a most enjoyable retreat any time of year.

Owner's Response: Thank you! I am so glad you got to see the eclipse from the cabin. It really was the perfect place. All of the neighbors, as you know, said it was phenomenal to see it from the field. Before thanking you for choosing our home in which to spend your time with your friends and family and for your thoughtfulness (I guess I just did!), I must tell you what you did for us. We were at the cabin with my daughter and granddaughter because of "Irma". The birds had to be fed, of course. Ed decided to go on line to find the hummingbird recipe from the National Zoo that you used. He and my granddaughter made it together. Not only was it a bonding and learning experience, it was a tremendous success, but you already know that. We have added it to Ag's "Birds of Murphy" book. Thank you! Again, thank you! Our retreat is available for your return any time of the year! Bobbi

peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was very cozy and clean. My husband fished in the lake (caught a 3 pound bass) and it was nice to go to the river and sit and listen to the water. Sitting on the porch was nice. we had hummingbirds coming to the feeder and birds singing all day long. One night we saw three deer! There is plenty of room in the cabin and the wi-fi was great to have. There is a lot to do in the area in the town of murphy and blairsville georgia is a very short drive. fields of the woods, cherokee cellars winery, drive the scenic byways, we went up to bryson on 19 and along the river we stopped and watched the rafters. it was a great drive and so much to see. In Blairsville there is Cooks Country Kitchen and The Hole In The Wall that are two of the places we ate at that are fantastic. Also visit the Sunrise Country Store (for our big foot t-shirts for the grand kids)and other neat stuff. Stopped at Brasstown Bald Mountain which is just a spectacular view. Drove to the casino but didn't go in this trip. Bobbi was great to work with and we hope to stay here again sometime.

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you enjoyed your time in our home and that your husband went out on the lake AND caught a bass. It sounds like the only time you relaxed was when you got back from seeing beautiful, interesting places and doing terrific things - which is wonderful! You found great places. Thank you for sharing your experiences. It makes us feel good knowing that you saw what the area has to offer and got a chance to meet the people that make this area special. Thank you for being so kind and thoughtful! It was a pleasure working with you, too! Please do come back - soon! Bobbi

We absolutely loved our stay here! It was so relaxing and peaceful. The Wi-Fi was great for the kids . Our little dog loved it here. There was lots of room for him to run and play. It was everything we expected and then some!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! It was a pleasure having you stay in our home. I am glad that you had a chance to relax and that the kids enjoyed their time, too. The field is the perfect place for running - for people and "puppies". I am glad your little dog was happy while running there. It seems like it goes forever to little people and little "fur people"! I appreciate your being so thoughtful and kind. It makes us happy to know that you enjoyed your vacation and that you chose our home in which to spend your family time. Our home is open to you and your family always! Thank you, again! Bobbi

WONDERFUL in every way

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here. Just hubby, me and two shih tsus. So relaxing and "away from it all", yet only a mile to town. The cabin was clean, no bugs, well stocked and very comfortable.

Bobbie, the first thing we did was meet friends for lunch at Dan's Grill in Blairsville!

Thanks for letting us use your home and we truly hope to be back again!

You are quite welcome and we want you back any time! Thank you for being so thoughtful! Next time we will make sure you can stay longer. Take care!

Peaceful and quiet, yet close to where you want to go.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself spent 3 nights here. We enjoyed the quiet after spending the day out. Close to casino, rafting, easy drive over to Cherokee. We would stay here again. My grandson would love it!

One of my favorites places!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed numerous times at this cabin for years. The area is so peaceful and inviting. Also the location is perfect. I highly recommend coming here if you get the chance. There is plenty of things to do at and near the cabin. Fishing, hiking, and shopping just to name a few. I always look forward to coming back because this place is absolutely my favorite. The owners are great too!
