Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Situated on the beautiful Nottely River, you will find our cabin a relaxing escape. It will accommodate 6 guests, but not more than 4 adults. The cabin offers privacy with spectacular views of the Nantahala National Forest and the river. It is located at the end of the road on the river and abuts the forest. The 2 mile drive back to the cabin through the canopy of trees is something you'll remember and enjoy.

Views from the wrap-around screened porch are beautiful. Open the french doors in the master bedroom for the relaxing sounds of the river at night and great views during the day. Evenings by the campfire can produce some very fun and memorable moments. You can also step off the bank and test your skills in the river that is home to a variety of fish including browns, rainbows and native brookies. You'll be amazed at the pristine setting and you will likely be the only person(s) on the river.

For those who enjoy a more active vacation, there's golfing, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, boating, horseback riding, hiking trails, mountain biking trails, and ATV trails, all within a few minutes drive of this quiet retreat on the river. You can put your kayak in up river from the cabin on the 'release' and enjoy a fun 20 minute ride back to the cabin, or just tube the river when not on the release and enjoy an hour and a half ride back to the cabin.

It’s secluded, yet convenient. Although we’re at the 'end of the road', it’s only a short ten to fifteen minute drive to Murphy, the center of everything in this part of Western North Carolina! Located between the Ocoee River in Tennessee, and the Nantahala River in North Carolina where whitewater Olympic contenders have trained. Here you will find a town reminiscent of days gone by with a very walkable main street with enough cafes, restaurants, and shops to keep you interested. Side-by-side flea markets close by on weekends, a flea market in the city on Tuesdays, and even a downtown farmers market on Saturdays. This is just a beautiful area to travel the back roads and create your own adventure!

Drive the Cherohala Skyway (rivals the Blue Ridge Parkway for unobstructed long-range views). Ride the 'Tail of the Dragon' through Deal's Gap. Visit the Joyce Kilmore Memorial Forest or the John Campbell Folk School for classes in folk art, crafts, contra-dancing, blacksmithing, bluegrass music, etc. Or just take a drive through a country-side replete with post card views.

Daytrips: Blue Ridge, Georgia has wonderful downtown shops and you must visit the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant for a wonderful meal.

Ellijay, Georgia - is the Apple Capital of Georgia - travel along Highway 52 to visit apple barns. Close by is Amicalola Falls - 729 feet of waterfalls, the largest east of the Mississippi.

Dahlonega, Georgia - has shopping at its best and home of The Smith House - a family-style restaurant that is awesome!

Cherokee, North Carolina - has the casino and you can trout fish on the Cherokee reservation land for a nominal price.

Asheville, North Carolina - home of The Biltmore House that is a must see!

Bryson City, North Carolina - Make reservations through Great Smoky Mountain Railroad for a beautiful trip along the Nantahala River and visit the River's End Restaurant for great food.

Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee - visit Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, as well as many outlet stores. Gatlinburg has the seven mile loop full of craft stores.

                                                                Amazingly relaxing with beautiful views!

                                                                Allison M.

                                                                We had a great time. The cabin is so comfortable. I could have sat on the porch all day or by the fire pit! Definitely wish we could have stayed longer! Murphy is a great little town with several good restaurants and even has a brewery!

                                                                Loved it!

                                                                STEVE S.

                                                                Our family had the most wonderful relaxing time! Cabin sits on the end of the road so the right of you is forest and quiet. Huge flat lawn that that we had a blast playing wiffle ball with the boys. The sound of the river out of the master suite was so relaxing !! Campfires at night and fishing , kayaking, exploring was fantastic! The owner Brantz was super helpfull and the cabin had everything you need! We will be coming back this summer for sure.

                                                                Beautiful River Retreat

                                                                Tamara B.

                                                                We absolutely loved our stay at this great home. The setting is breathtaking…..the house sits on a level lot right next to the Nottely River. You can sit on the expansive screened in porch and listen to the peaceful sound of the flowing river. There is a wonderful fire pit right on the river bank. The living room is cozy with a wood burning fireplace. The house had everything my husband and I needed. It is well maintained and organized. You feel like you are out in the middle of nowhere (there are neighbors on this quiet road, but we never saw them), but the quaint little downtown section of Murphy is a quick 10-15 minute trip away where we found some great restaurant choices. Brantz, the owner, was a delight to work with. This is a definite Five Star property and we highly recommend it!!

                                                                A beautiful property!!

                                                                Diana E.Miami

                                                                Upon arrival, the property and river are breathtaking!! We were there for our Anniversary and Christmas!

                                                                The cabin had plenty of room for my husband and myself. It was cozy, comfortable and well stocked!!

                                                                Brantz’s directions were spot on!!!

                                                                We enjoyed breakfast one morning on the front porch listening to the river!

                                                                Our two, very small fur babies thoroughly enjoyed the property exploring and running around.

                                                                FYI: Brrrrrr it was cold a few mornings!!!

                                                                Thank you Brantz!

                                                                Beautiful, relaxing stay

                                                                Judy G.Miami

                                                                This property is beautiful! Everything you could possibly need is provided. The relaxing sound of the river from the huge deck is all you'll need to completely escape the real world. The property is quiet and feels secluded yet you are so close to Murphy or Blue Ridge where you can get a great meal or shop. There is hiking and scenic drives all nearby. Loved this place.

                                                                Perfect relaxing getaway!

                                                                Diane H.Poplarville, MS

                                                                The cabin was perfect. The sound of rushing water and beautiful scenery was more than we could have asked for. The little city is a diamond in the rough and the people are friendly as can be! If you are looking for a time away from the hustle and bustle, this place will be perfect. It is well stocked to eat in or there are plenty of places close to eat out. There are stairs if that needs considering. Fishing was fun even though a lot were not caught. It was 27 degrees to 70 degrees the week we were there. The owner is more than accommodating and makes sure the home is your “home away from home.” We hope we can return one day.
