About Raymond

After leaving Chicagoland for Florida in 1993, we have lived on the water in FL ever since. Thought we'd try something DIFFERENT--- a mountain retreat! Just come up and SMELL the fresh air! HEAVENLY! After 7 summers of visiting Murphy, we just decided to buy a smaller "LOVE SHACK" for couples! Super plush furnishings with a wooded lot and killer FIRE PIT- just 1.5 miles from town!! 14 minute drive to NEW Harrah's Casino!! Sleeps just 4! But, soft rug in front of fireplace, will beg for just a couple! Fall in love again.

Raymond purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Raymond chose Murphy

Looking for cooler summers, we thought a mountain home with spectacular views would do the trick. We love this location- PAVED road leading right to our driveway - NO SCARY steep driving - NO 4 wheels needed / The Springs, gated community, only has about 20 homes now-- but will be even better at build out.

What makes this chalet unique

Gated community/near Mountain View Marina & hiwasee Dam. HOT TUB**HOT TUB - need I say more ? We love the southern exposure of this home/the VIEWS are all around us. Plan to fish in the stocked pond on property. Before we bought, while going back for a 2nd showing, we saw 8 wild turkeys in the middle of the road & 2 deer on the side!! Love the wildlife and QUIET here. The whole development has paved roads to hike up and down every morning! WHEW!!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Even after two months (yes, I said months, not weeks) we were sad to leave. From the moment we walked in till the day we left, we felt right at home. The chalet is inviting, warm and well equipped with everything we needed. The chill of the early morning was quickly dissipated by the remotely controlled fireplace (our stay was from mid January to mid March). Without even getting out of bed, a touch of the button and the fireplace was quickly making it nice and toasty. Had loads of fun watching the deer come to feed. Had great walks around the area on the paved roads and through the woods when we felt more adventurous. The afternoon sun was great for sitting out on the deck, enjoying a warm beverage and looking at the mountains. You are literally ringed by mountains. To the south you could see mountains all the way in Georgia and to the north, mountains in Tennessee were clearly visible. The view constantly changed as the sun played off the mountainsides highlighting certain areas and creating deep shadows in others. When the mist settled over the mountains it was a delight and as night settled in, the fireplace drew us back inside for a toasty respite from the cooling temperatures. Location-wise, it was perfect. You were not in town (and Murphy is a lovely little town) but close enough to run in for groceries or take a stroll down its quaint main street or its Riverwalk. From our Mountain View Chalet we were able venture out and explore a number of small towns, waterfalls, parks and rivers while still being able to get back in time for evening cocktails and deer watching. It was very peaceful and a great place to recharge the body and soul. We highly recommend this place.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Thanksgiving week at Mountain View. What a gorgeous property. Lots of space to spread out or spend time together. The property was nicely furnished with everything we needed. And the views were spectacular. There is so much to do and see even in the "off season" that we never lacked for activities, but really enjoyed coming back to the cabin at the end of the day. Thanks Ray for sharing your property with our family.

Spacious, affordable, clean. Everything you need.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice. I wish the home away fee was lower. The fire pit outside needs to be clean up because the grass is overgrown around it. The hut tub has a wasp nest underneath. I did not like having to drive the garbage to the dumpster. Otherwise, there is an extra$25 fee to dispense the garbage. The water pressure was very week and the twin mattresses were too thin and uncomfortable. It is an amazing value for money and the rooms. All modern appliances, Netflix, WiFi, cell service. Amazing mountain view. I am glad I chose this property.

Owner's Response: So sorry to not receive 5 stars! If you would have told me about wasps & tall grass- we would have gotten our handyman out IMM. He is a hard worker & repairs items for us promptly. Wish we had trash pick up - but " welcome to the mountains". Just the way things are.... I also have no control over the Honeaway service fee. Would sure like a 5 star rating....

Great home - Magnificent views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mountain View. The responsive owners made the entire booking process and stay a pleasant experience. The home was clean, tidy upon arrival and beautifully furnished.

Spacious decks with views that were spectacular. Much to see and do in the area ; a haven for fishermen. Particularly enjoyed the quaint downtown area of Murphy, a short drive away, with its many antique shops and restaurants . The river walk is another "Murphy" attraction that is not to be missed.

We would recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit the lovely surroundings that Murphy has to offer. Home is located in a lovely private, gated community, Quiet, secluded and safe .

Convenient to all shopping from Walmart to a local downtown bakery. We would give it ten stars, if we could. Look forward to returning next year.

Beautiful house with a gorgeous view.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a nice long weekend at the Mountain View and enjoyed our stay very much. It was very comfortable, fabulous views...we even got 3 inches of snow one night! The hot tub was so relaxing, we spent hours in it just enjoying the view and the snow. We usually take our pillows when staying other places, but these were perfect for us, we could have left ours at home! The decorations were great, I loved the quilts on the beds and the recurring theme of fish and wildlife. Very cute. We plan on coming again.
