Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Our eight day stay at the Ulllman's cottage was perfect in every way! A beautifully appointed cottage, splendid view of the lake with a lovely deck, comfortable beds...actually, nothing lacking. Even though it rained two days, we enjoyed "staying in" and reading, resting, talking. Our repeated comment: "the best place we've ever rented and enjoyed!

A Great Location and Beautiful Too

  • 5 of 5

If you like serinity and quiet this is it. A short ride to almost everything you may want to do. The cabin is neat and clean and fully equipped and ready to support your next vacation. Easy access is also a strong plus for this very nice mountain home. To the owner: Thank you for sharing it with us.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you found peace at our cottage. That is truly what this setting offers. When you want to get away from it all, and enjoy the beauty of nature without having to share it with water skiers and speed boats, this is the place for you!!! Thank you for mentioning the proximity to shopping....only 15 minutes away fro downtown Murphy. We look forward to your return.

It felt like home and we found much need peace, relaxation, and fun there.

  • 5 of 5

I honestly do not even know where to start. Phyllis and Peter are just the kindest people. Phyllis communicated with me so well from day one and we loved that they took the time to cover over to meet us once we arrived. They are lovely and we look forward to visiting with them again next year. We felt so at home in this lovely house. Phyllis had asked me to make sure to her know if there was anything at all that we needed that wasn't there and as hard as I tried to come up with something, I couldn't! The lake is beautiful, quiet, and peaceful..... except for the wildlife. The birds are chattering and singing and the fish are splashing. We loved watching many birds as they swooped over the water. We saw a really large turtle, SO many fish, a lots of geese. My son fished every day that we were there and he enjoyed catching so many fish. They were nice sized and he caught one of the most beautiful Bluegills that we had ever seen. Of course I had to take lots of pictures before he threw them back. We've never been able to let our Golden Retriever just run free out of fear that he might wander off, but here he was free the whole time! He would wander down to the lake for a swim or lay on the dock. VERY happy pup. In town they have the best restaurants!! Parson's Pub (we went twice), Valley River Brewery, Rib Country and No Name Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor were our favorites. We had not planned on eating out so often but saw how good the reviews were so we decided to go. The decor and atmosphere were really neat.

What a lucky town to have so many excellent choices and the people were so kind. Our family took several walks on the River Walk. It's right on the river (as the name says) and is pretty well shaded and is a relaxing, comfortable walk. We played "Murphy Rocks" and got hooked!! People paint rocks with encouraging messages or just fun colors and hide them on the River Walk, downtown, all over Murphy for people to find, keep or rehide. It became an addiction for us. We are planning on "rocking" our home area soon. We drove past the Ocoee River which is just gorgeous and learned about many very beautiful places we hope to explore next year. Perfection!! The house, our hosts, the area, our vacation was perfect. Love to you, Phyllis and Peter, and thank you VERY much for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness...what a beautifully written and heartfelt review. The pleasure you have given us by sharing the pleasure you experienced is immeasurable. This cottage is not just a rental property for us is a peaceful experience that we choose to share with others. And you have captured the essence of it in this review. We are so happy that your son and dog equally enjoyed themselves. And thank you for sharing the restaurants and traditions of downtown Murphy. Love to you too. We look forward to your return:)

Beautiful home and property!

  • 5 of 5

Long overdue review, my stay was in 4/2016.

This home was beautiful. Everything was exactly as pictured! The lake is so peaceful. During our stay we went out on it every day and only saw one other person on the lake. I would definitely recommend staying here!
