Welcome to our Guest House on the Hiwassee River. If your looking for a quick recharge, an outdoor adventure or a romantic getaway we believe our place might just do the trick! Located halfway between the small towns of Murphy and Hayesville, also we are 2 hours from (Asheville, Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Grenville..).Finished in 2010 the Guest House is detached from our home, and is perched above the river on a moderately wooded one acre lot with over 200ft frontage on the river.The Guest House is a 1 bedroom with a loft each with a queen bed and is finished with solid hickory wood floors throughout, spruce tongue & groove ceilings. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, microwave, refrigerator, solid granite counter tops and is stocked with everything you need to prepare a home-cooked meal. The bathroom is a glass enclosed travertine shower, granite counter top, and heated travertine floors. If the weather keeps you indoors, there is a 42 inch flat screen, DirectTv satelite, a DVD player with an assortment of movies to enjoy. We also have board and card games . You can enjoy your morning coffee or evening coctail on the deck letting the sound and view of the river do it's magic. Or head down to the river and enjoy a roaring fire roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Now the river is what brings most folks here, you can enjoy swimming, kayaking, tubing fishing etc, (we do not provide canoe,kayaks or float tubes)! Also we are located a 20 minute drive from Lake Chatuge, where you can rent boats for fishing, skiing, or just cruising the lake. If you have a four legged loved one we welcome guests that have (SMALL PETS) for a $50 additional fee.If you aren't familiar with the area, since we live here, we can help with any ideas of things to see and do during your stay. We look forward to sharing our piece of PARADISE here on the river with you.

We are originally from Ft Myers, Florida. Peggy is retired, and I am semi-retired. ( I spend the summer as whitewater river guide) We have 2 children and 4 grand children. We built our modest home here in 1985. Naturally family and friends love to visit so we found the need to add the Guest House in 2010.
Owner purchased this Guest House in 2010
Why Owner chose Hayesville
We feel very fortunate to have found this little piece of paradise. Just the view of the river itself is so peaceful. The small town atmosphere is another reason we love it here.
What makes this Guest House unique
The relaxing views and sound of the river , plus being able to just walk down and enjoying fishing, kayaking, and swimming are a nice bonus.

A real mountain gem!
In a word; "LUXURIOUS".
Attention to detail is beyond any expectation.
Riverside = Relaxation at its finest.
Just what we needed without airports, busses and traffic.
The kitchen is well appointed and ready for any meal prep. You might want to pick up your favorite coffee, creamer and basic food items prior to arrival.
Lyndell & Peggy are perfect hosts who strive to make guests feel like family.
We highly recommend staying here whenever the mountain urge strikes.
So glad y'all enjoyed your getaway. We hope to see ya again soon!
Relaxing River Retreat
This property was exactly what we hoped for and so much more. The sights and sounds of the Hiawassee River are the best way to spend a week in NC. Located between Murphy and Hayesville, this a great location. The beautiful Fires Creek area is just down the road a bit and should not be missed. The bed was so comfortable it gave us the best nights sleep in a long time! For the cook in your group, you will find the kitchen very well laid out, complete with a good quality gas stove and enough counter space to prepare a delicious meal.
