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.

Relaxation, relaxation, relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to relax and recharge, this is the place. The lake is a no-wake lake, so we weren't bothered by speed boats, jet skies, water-skiers, etc. My husband was able to get in some fishing time without all the noise that normally goes along with a stay on the water. The house is surrounded on three sides by water and there are just enough trees to block the view of the neighbors. The interior of the house is very comfortable. It was nice enough for a cabin retreat, but not so "formal" that it didn't feel lived in. We cooked most meals there and the kitchen was well equipped with what we needed. The owner called to check on things to make sure that we had everything we needed and that things were working properly. You don't normally get the personal tough from the owners. This was very refreshing. Definitely a place to go for a week away from it all.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Blackberry Hill. My husband loves the boating and fishing, I like the well equipped kitchen. Our standard poodle loved swimming in the lake and chasing frizbees. The fire pit is great for enjoying s'mores on a cool night. If you want to just sit back and relax or read, the deck area is perfect. Phyllis and Peter are great hosts. A great place to go and get away from it all.

Lovely Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time staying at this lovely lake cottage in Murphy. It was super relaxing and ideal for getting away from the daily grind. I caught a number of 1-2 lb bass in the lake. We rode the Great Smokey Railroad Steam Engine train out of Bryson City and visited Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap. Phyllis and Peter were ideal hosts and even stopped by to check to ensure all was well and up to expectations. My granddaughter Riley (age 4) even cried when we had to leave as she had such a good time she wanted to stay. Thank you for a wonderful vacation spot.

Steve, Mary, and Riley (plus our mini-schnauzers Shatzi and Morgan).
