Overview

About the property

Custom Built 2/2 sleeps 6 with garage

Relax, reflect and enjoy the peace and silence while setting in rocking chairs viewing long range mountain views from the wrap-around porch. Whether you are a morning person that starts the day by enjoying your coffee while the cool morning fog rolls through the mountains, or end your day setting back with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset disappear behind the Smokies, it really doesn't matter... This is as close to heaven as you can get.

The cabin is conveniently located near some of the best outdoor adventures in the country. It is just a short scenic drive to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cherokee Indian Reservation and Casino, Fields of the Wood, Great Smoky Mountains Train Adventures, Zip Lining, White Water Rafting, Gatlinburg, Dollywood and the historic Biltmore Estate.

For motorcycle riding, Deals Gap and the Cherohala Skyway are 35 miles from the cabin with a beautiful ride through the Nantahala. Or for a slower pace, the southern most end of the Blue Ridge Parkway is only about 50 miles away. The cabin has paved roads all the way to it including the driveway and a motorcycle garage is available for your toys when you're not using them. Fishing poles are waiting at the house when you want them or the river may be calling you to just come set in the water at a shallow spot and watch as the current flows by.

The cabin features a large open floor plan with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and great room with a stone gas log fireplace to the ceiling peak. The split bedroom plan provides a large master suite, with a king-size bed and private full bath. The guest bedroom, at the other end of the cabin, has a queen size bed and it's own full bath as well. King and Queen Beams through the ceilings gives you a feel of rustic openness. Bedrooms have TV and all linens. There is a couch in the living room that pulls out to a queen size bed. The cabin sleeps 6 people.

There is a outside fire pit area for your use with seating overlooking the mountains. ( firewood not provided)

About Russ Beckenstein

Russ and I had this custom home built for our personal enjoyment to spend time away from the rush of daily life and to have a private getaway to spend time with our family and close friends. In 2013, we have decided to open it up to let others experience what we have found. We hope you enjoy it as much as we always do.

Russ Beckenstein purchased this cabin in 2006

Comfy cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I went for a girls weekend. We had such a great time in the cabin. It had everything we needed. VBRO made things slightly difficult to get my reservation in but russ was very patient and accommodating as we got things figured out. I'm so happy with our stay!

FIVE STARS!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults, a toddler and an infant thoroughly enjoyed Twin Peaks! Home was very clean, split bedroom plan was perfect, and the decorating was very tasteful. Kitchen was clean and easy to cook in with enough room to prepare and the table was just right for all of us. Living room was very comfortable, as was the beautiful porch. We were able to gate off the porch and enjoyed most of our time out there with the toddler and her toys. We brought our Harley and rode the beautiful roads in the area. It was so nice to be able to put the bike in the garage each night. Communicating with the owner, Russ, was always easy and response time was immediate. Home was easy to find and there was enough parking for two full size vehicles, a bike trailer and our motorcycle. The fire pit was another nice plus. We enjoyed having fires and smores on several nights. There were PLENTY of towels, and if you forgot something - you will probably find it in one the baskets in the bathrooms. Thank you Russ and Becky for sharing your lovely home with us - we had a great time! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Twin Peaks was well maintained, very clean, in a great location and had everything you needed!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in the Murphy area as well as other parts of North Carolina multiple times over the years and have stayed in many cabin rentals during that time frame. I have to say, we really enjoyed our stay at Twin Peaks. The cabin itself was gorgeous, both inside and out. It was beautifully decorated and very clean with all the amenities you would have at home. Russ was super easy to deal with and very responsive. Any time I sent an email there was a very timely response. We had no problems with the directions to get there, the code to the lockbox, etc. All went very smoothly. We love the Murphy area and the location of the cabin was convenient to town. We chose the Murphy area as it is close to the Ocoee and Nantahala for rafting. We enjoyed reading the comment book that was on the table in the living room and seeing what other people did on their stays in the area. Gave us some ideas of other things to do as well. I really don't have any suggestions as it seems Russ and Becky have pretty much thought of everything!
