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 Smoky Mountains

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!!

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.

Great cabin

The views are incredible and the cabin was very well equipped. The internet was spotty and slow but we got around that. This is a great place.
