Outstanding Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Loved our week at this charming cottage in Murphy NC. Hosts Phyllis and Peter were very helpful and always available. The cottage has many amenities not usually available in rentals. The kitchen had just about any thing you could need to cook...just bring the food! The view was very relaxing. We were blessed with exceptional weather. We definitely recommend this home.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon here and loved it, the kitchen appliances were great and the shower was very nice. We really enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor fire places and canoeing on the pond. The owner was very friendly and helped arrange a meal in-town one evening as well. Would recommend to any small group looking to get away from it all for a bit.

Serenity, beauty, relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage on the lake is a beautiful and serene place! The combination of the lake and the beautiful fall colors was spectacular. We love wild life so we thoroughly enjoyed the geese and their fly overs. The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities necessary to enjoy a home away from home. We enjoyed our walks throughout the beautiful surrounding area and the neighbors were very nice and friendly. My husband and I celebrated our 50th anniversary and we wanted a place where we could enjoy some time for reflection. Mission accomplished. Thank you Phyllis and Peter for sharing your piece of paradise with us. Isa and Ruben Trevino

Just what was needed

  • 5 of 5

Great Cabin on Lake Wells. This is my 2nd stay and enjoyed myself yet again. Got out and explored some more of the area. Found some new waterfalls which I hadn't seen before. Was saddened by the car show at Andrews rainout the last day but instead we took a 15 min drive and checked out the new Casino. There are some great things to do most within a reasonable amount of drivetime. Definitely a small town feel......Just what was needed. Thank you Phyllis!!!

Owner's Response: You are absolutely the perfect guest! You kept the cottage so neat and clean for the 10 days you stayed with us, just as though it was your own. So glad you had beautiful Autumn weather and that you enjoyed exploring the surrounding areas. It is surprising how many fun things there are to do in and around Murphy! They say Murphy is a little place in nowhere that is close to everywhere!Looking forward to your return next year:)

The Ullman's cottage is very nice very accommodating. A very nice place to go to get away from hustle and bustle. Enjoyed the view of the lake and the clear nights where you can see a million stars. Very refreshing and serene. I would recommend the Ullman's place. Looking forward to coming again. Sincerely, The McDaniel's

Awesome Property

The property was beautiful! The house was very clean and comfortable. The view was spectacular! Can't believe all the fun things to do in Murphy (River walk, casino, water falls, etc.). Great BBQ right down the street.

We had a GREAT time!
