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!

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!

My husband and I have stayed at this cabin numerous times and we just love it. It is very centrally located, easy to get into town, it's a short drive into Tennessee, easy drive to Blue Ridge. You can take a short walk to the lake and fish, walk down to the dock on the river, but the best thing about this cabin, it is so quiet and peaceful, you can just sit in the rocker on the porch and relax for hours and watch the birds. The cabin is very clean and if you need anything, the owner will try everything in her power to make it happen. There are restaurants in town or you can prepare meals there at the cabin, you have everything you need. It truly is a very tranquil relaxing place. Bobbi and Ed, thanks for being so generous as usual.

This was our second visit to this beautiful cabin and it felt wonderful remembering the great moments we had the first time around and experiencing new ones. Although we had some rainy days, the area was just as beautiful as we remembered. My wife and I enjoyed the much needed peace and tranquility that we were seeking.

On this trip we celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary along with our little dog Mimi. She too had a great time running around and playing in the open field and rolling over the piles of fallen leaves. We highly recommend this cabin for anyone seeking either adventure, romance or just a peaceful getaway. The owner is a great, friendly and an outgoing human being. Thank you Bobbi for sharing your amazing mountain cabin with us and making all this beautiful memories possible.

Beautiful! Home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time in this beautiful home. It was very nice, our girls had a blast, swimming in the lake, riding our 4 wheeler. Enjoyed the sitting on the porch, while my husband grilled, the weather was really nice. We also enjoyed watching the squirrels come and eat out of the bird feeders. My husband really wished he had brought his fishing pole. We will be back! Thanks Bobbi for sharing your beautiful home.

God Bless,

The Thompson's

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in this wonderful location. The home was clean and had everything you will need for a great week. We caught fish in the lake and saw them in the river-a better fisherman would have caught them. A lot of amenities in the cabin and the location was convenient to everything. I highly recommend this cabin, our family of four had a great week away from the world.
