Ideally located less than 2 hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Gatlinburg and Asheville. If casino gaming is your thing, we’re only 60 miles from Harrah’s casino in Cherokee.
If you like outdoor activities, visit our numerous lakes and rivers for boating, fishing, swimming, white water rafting and tubing. You can hike, bike, horseback ride, picnic and view waterfalls at nearby forests and state parks. Shoppers will enjoy exploring the quaint town of Murphy along with nearby Blairsville and Blue Ridge. The Cherokee golf course is only about a mile or two from the cabin and the John C. Campbell folk school is just 5 minutes away. Thrill seekers will enjoy white water rafting, zip lining or cruising the “tale of the dragon”.
If you are looking to take a drive, visit Helen Ga, the Cherokee reservation, Harrah’s casino, Biltmore estate, and so much more. Take a shorter drive to Franklin to look for gemstones or ride the Smokey Mountain Railway train from Bryson City – both less than an hour away. We have many brochures for you to review in our cabin. Most folks might find it enjoyable to relax on our deck, listening to the creek and watching for deer and turkeys. Whatever you decide, life is good when you are at Up the Creek.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Hi – we’re Dale and Michele and the proud owners of the Up the Creek. Although we're from Florida, North Carolina is in our blood. Our first getaway together back in the early 1990s was to the Western Carolinas and we've been returning ever since. Dale’s Mom bought a small place in Maggie Valley in the early 2000s and my parents permanently moved to Murphy from Florida in 2010. We know the area well. We've been to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, on the Smokey Mountain Railway, Grandfather Mountain, Flat Rock Mountain, the “Tail of the Dragon” (on Harley’s and in cars), horseback riding, white water rafting, gambling at Harrah’s, Elk viewing and so much more. We just can’t get enough so, finally, in 2013 we purchased Up the Creek. One day this will be our permanent home, but until then we are sharing with others. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located in the upscale Highland Creek community, we have access to the Hiwassee River -- just a short walk from the cabin. A pavilion and a grill are available. You can play in the river, fish for trout, kayak or just relax and read a book. We enjoy sitting on a chair, watching the ducks and looking for otters.
