VRBO RATED TOP TEN OF OVER 700 PROPERTIES IN THE SMOKIES !
Powderhill South is ranked in THE TOP TEN out of over 700 rental properties in western North Carolina and North Georgia according to a VRBO Statistics Report in February, 2018 !
Nestled between the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the south and the Great Smoky Mountains to the north, you will find Powderhill South. The intersection of these two magnificent mountain ranges provides a setting steeped in nature’s serenity where beauty abounds with every turn of your head.
You’ll feel right at home the minute you walk into this amazing 3-Bedroom, 3-Bathroom cabin in a peaceful, quiet corner of Murphy, NC. There are three levels of decking including a two-sided deck on the second (main) level that overlooks a neatly landscaped property. There’s also plenty of outdoor seating on the main level deck. Inside, the beautiful stone gas log fireplace and sumptuous leather couches of the great room will greet you upon entry. Nearby, a fully equipped galley kitchen offers a pass through to the dining area that seats six. The main floor also features a guest bathroom and two guest bedrooms, each appointed with a queen-size bed. One of the guest bedrooms also has access to the main level deck.
Upstairs, you’ll find a loft that overlooks the living room below. The loft is furnished as a relaxing TV-viewing area with plush leather seating. Just off the loft is the lavish master bedroom with a king size cannon ball bed, full bath, two walk-in closets and its own private deck. (The staircase leading to the loft may be seen as steeper than usual.)
Let the games begin on the lower level where you’ll find a 42-inch flat screen TV and a bevy of Wii System video games. Watch your favorite movie or sporting event, or bring the action right to your fingertips – you decide. Or play a rousing game of air hockey on the other side of the room. Also on the lower level is another full bath, washer and dryer facilities and a large two-car garage.
Powderhill South offers high definition flat screen TV’s in nearly every room of the house – all equipped with Dish Network digital satellite TV. There is also high-speed internet service and local and long distance landline phone service provided at no additional cost. There’s a DVD player and a CD/stereo in the loft for rainy days or to set the mood on a special night. There’s even a fire pit outside for toasting marshmellos , making s’mores or warming your hands on a cool night.
On the patio level there are two decks. How 'bout a relaxing soak in our huge 6-person Jacuzzi Hot Tub on our Spa Deck ??! Seating for six - including lounger - with amazing neon light display, waterfall, dual pumps and ClearRay UV water purification system. Also on the patio level is our Picnic Deck, where a unique hexagonal picnic table with built-in seating is just a few feet away from a new, gas-fired hibachi grill. Cook anything from hamburgs and hotdogs to bacon and eggs. Or bring on the chicken fried rice, shrimp and steak and make an exciting custom dinner! This is where you can literally make lasting memories!
Powderhill South is centrally located between Blairsville, GA – just 10 minutes to the south- and the Murphy downtown area including the new casino just 10 minutes north. There are a myriad of golf courses, dozens of fishing and other outdoor opportunities like rafting and zip lines within an hour drive. In less than two hours you can be in Chattanoga, Atlanta, or the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area - the latter via a spectacular drive through the Great Smoky Mountains.
Powderhill South is a family friendly, budget friendly way to spend your active or relaxing vacation getaway. It’s a great hub for your golf – fish – casino retreat as well. For a little more than the price of a single hotel room, you can sleep six and turn any vacation into an unforgettable memory. Note that due to the gravel driveway, Powderhill South is not suitable for motorcycle travelers.
Upon booking, you will receive our 'Guide to Powderhill South' (.PDF format) a booklet with all the essential details on home operations and the local and regional areas of entertainment. (Note: Pets are NOT permitted.)

Loved the home and layout of everything also loved having garage acsess
Very well furnished cabin.
Good experience. The cabin was well-furnished and was ideal for kids with the air hockey table. Very detailed “welcome aboard” package that was helpful.
Use caution once you are on the single-lane portion of the access, keep it slow as there are a few turns that are blind and there is the chance to abruptly meet oncoming traffic. Not an issue - just a heads-up for travelling to and from the property.
The perfect weekend getaway
I loved our stay at the cabin and we will definitely be back for a weekend or two. The cabin is beautiful and spacious and clean and the owner put a lot of though into it. The view is awesome and it has a fully stacked kitchen, towels and everything else you need to enjoy your stay. We did not get to try the game room but it looked great. We honestly spend most of our time in the hot tub :)
Perfect Mountain Getaway
We loved our stay at Powderhill South! The location is perfect if you just want to relax and enjoy all the local beauty. We went into Georgia one day to Brasstown Bald and to the Fields of the Wood another day. Coming back to the cabin to relax in the hot tub at night after a long day of hiking was a plus! The cabin was so cozy and clean. We would highly recommend this cabin if you are planning a trip to the North Carolina mountain area.
Easily accessible and still secluded
Mr. Joe Rufo was very helpful and accommodating. The cabin is comfortable and inviting. A detailed 43 page guide for accessing the cabin, using its various features and facilities is thorough and valuable. Wish we had more time to sit on the porch and enjoy the setting!
Beautiful cabin extremely clean and spacius... thanks for a great getaway!
