About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Perfect for the family vacation or a romantic getaway for two, this secluded cedar log cabin is nestled in a picturesque valley among three wooded acres on the banks of the Nottely River, just outside of Murphy, North Carolina. The Great Smoky Mountains surround the area and provide spectacular views, as well as an abundance of outdoor activities.

Enjoy beautiful sunsets over the mountains from rocking chairs on the wrap-around porch or reading by the magnificent riverstone fireplace. As evening nears, drift off to the sound of whip-o-wills in the distance and the glow of fireflies illuminating the sky. In the mornings, awaken to the melody of geese circling the nearby lakes.

Newly renovated, the cabin offers spacious vaulted family and dining rooms, a sleeping loft, four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and is comfortably furnished. The wrap around deck offers great views of the spacious yard and the river.

Relaxing,,comfortable and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay.Cabin is very comfortable in a quiet area!!Only 3 of us and our dog so more than enough room.HUGE dining room with a piano our son played for us.Caught several trout in the river out back with our dog helping of course .Never got a chance to use the fire pit outside as we got a bit of wet weather but we spent a lot of time out on the back deck with the breeze watching the hummingbirds,rabbits and fireflies in the evening.The location was perfect for exploring several of the local breweries and wineries.Overall the perfect spot for those that want to get away from it all!!

Beautiful house in a gorgeous setting

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed for four days. Photos do not do justice to gorgeous yard and setting. So peaceful - listened to the birds in the morning, fished at the property's edge in the river (caught a striped bass and crappie), walked to the lake on a trail lined with blackberries, ate breakfast at the huge family table with antler candlesticks and overhead light fixtures. Kids caught fireflies and made smores in the fire pit. Played volleyball, frisbee and baseball in the yard. Cooked out on the grill. Just perfect. Will be back with more people next summer.

Nothing Better!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay at this cabin with another family was the perfect trip for all 4 adults and 4 kids. There was plenty of room in the cabin for two families, and we never felt crowded. We spent most of the time outside in the huge yard, down by the river, and around the campfire each night. It was very clean when we arrived, and the owner was responsive to emails and attentive to our questions. This is a quick trip if you live outside of Atlanta and definitely worth the beautiful drive through Blue Ridge. It's a must-do family vacation spot for anyone who wants the ultimate, peaceful and relaxing vacation.

Memory Maker!

  • 5 of 5

Ditto to everything S. Bates wrote below. We've just returned from a two-week stay at the cabin where we especially enjoyed playing in (and smelling) the freshly-cut 7-plus acres of grass. The nighttime mist rolling in from the river and the thousands of fireflies rising up out of the grass is a sight you must see! Our children, grandchildren, & black lab swam every day in Harold Wells Lake only a two-minute walk away. (I do suggest checking daily the TVA release schedule for Nottely Lake --just to be sure you're not caught off guard if you're swimming in the Nottely River.)A perfect cabin for a perfect vacation makes the 11-hour drive from Naples, FL more than worth it!

This cabin is the perfect place for anyone looking to get away from hustle of the city, or to gather all family members under one roof for much needed time together, or a romantic get-a-way. I have been a guest here during different times of the Seasons and each time has been enjoyable, relaxing, and tranquil. When you arrive at the cabin the first thing you will note will be the wrap around porch with a large swing and rocking chairs, overlooking a huge yard with a rope swing in the tree, picnic table and fire pit for a bonfire and roasting hot dogs or marshmallows to make smores. A short walk across the yard will end at the Nottley River where there is also a swing on the riverbank, a great place to cast your bait for the trout, or just sit and enjoy the wildlife. Once inside the cabin, the décor is fitting with the area. All rustic and the amenities are superb with a large screen cable tv, a dining room that has a table large enough for everyone to be together…and if by chance you can play a piano, you can gather your family around for sing-a-longs after sharing your meals. The living room provides a spectacular view. The fully stocked kitchen leaves you with absolutely nothing you have to bring except for the food. Or, if you prefer not to cook, the short drive into town will provide you with your choice of any type food you desire and afterwards a walk through downtown Murphy is very enjoyable. After a hard day of play or exploring you can return to the cabin to relax and sleep peacefully in one of the very comfortable log beds. And, if you must check in at the office, with a family member or just friends, internet access is provided. Also, your four-legged family member is welcomed. Needless to say, I cannot wait until I have the opportunity to return and make more memories to reflect on in the years ahead.
