Why Ken Brockway chose Murphy
The peaceful, private location offers serene mornings and pleasant, relaxing evenings on a deck that stretches across the front of the cabin and houses the LARGE hot tub. It's a perfect way to unwind while viewing the surrounding mountains and wooded scenery. Our local Farmer's Market and area Flea Markets make for interesting and unique shopping! Entertainment nearby: Short distance from our local Henn Theatre and Harrah's NEW Valley River Casio! Short drive to white water rafting and zip-lining! How about a great family adventure on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway? It starts at the historic depot, built in 1905, in nearby downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia. Centrally located between Asheville, Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Gaitlinburg. Less then 30 minutes from John C. Campbell Folk School! The cabin is in Bear Trail, a small private cabin development, minutes from Cherokee Lake, beautiful Hiwassee Dam Reservoir and the Ocoee Whitewater Center. These area waterways provide access for rafting, canoeing, fishing, and exploring!

A nice get-a-way
We had a great time here for a couple days. It was nice and secluded, but still within a reasonable drive to the bigger cities nearby.
Loved the cabin
It was a perfect place and location
So relaxing to just get away from home for awhile. An the hot tub was just a bonus!!
Excellent retreat for our family!
My adult kids and I spent Christmas here and it was everything we hoped it would be. The hosts were exceptionally accommodating and it was a blessing that we were able to spend the time with our two senior dogs. The area had lots to see and do. I would definitely recommend this rental for a family vacation, couples retreat or friends getaway!
The hot tub didn't get hot and the gas logs didn't work. The property owner came out the 1st night but the next day the hot tub wouldn't get hot, it rose 4 degrees the whole time we were there, it went to 68 degrees which is cold. He tried to fix the gas logs but he didn't and then the batteries went out in the gas logs and it chirped for 2 days. He told us to take the batteries out of the back of the gas logs but we didn't have a screwdriver, we didn't know we were gonna have to fix things so we didn't bring a screwdriver I complained again and the property owner would not come out again. The reason we stayed there was for the hot tub but we didn't even get to use it cause it wouldn't heat up. Very disappointing. The decor was nice and the location but nothing worked.
The hot tub had to have main circuit board replaced by Spa and Deck Creations and is working perfect now
