About the property

This property is a charming mountain cottage that serves as a vacation home for us. Our home is conveniently located 5 miles from Murphy in the Peach Tree community near the John C. Campbell Folk School and the Murphy Hospital. Your privacy is protected with surrounding trees and you feel remote while at the home. When you enter the cottage you feel like you finally made it home because it is cozy yet spacious. Our home has a covered front porch with rocking chairs and a large side deck where you can enjoy the panoramic mountain views while relaxing in the hot tub. You will enjoy the open concept floor plan downstairs. Preparing a meal in the fully equipped kitchen allows you to remain with the "crowd" during preparation. All will enjoy a meal at the gathering table that seats 8 as you take in the mountain views during the meal. The comfy family room features two cat napper recliners and a denim sofa that converts to a queen sleeper if needed. A gas log fireplace can be used to take the chill off quickly during a cool fall or winter day while enjoying a glass of wine or other spirits. The master bedroom

on the main level is appointed with a king size bed, a reading chair and large bureau with doors that open to view TV. A large walk-in closet allows for plenty of storage. Across the hall is a large full bathroom that provides for easy access for guests as well. A large utility room with washer and dryer allows you keep keep clutter down during your stay. Stairs lead to an open loft that is furnished with a full size antique wrought iron bed and a wicker twin bed with a full bath. Wi-Fi included. Large flat parking at the back of the home is provided.

About mike hatton

We have enjoyed our mountain home with our three grandsons since we purchased it in 2004. Our oldest grandson has enjoyed many trips with us and has grown up making many trips to our home and first called our planned trips to the mountain house as "going to the mounts". We live and grew up in the Florida Panhandle.

mike hatton purchased this cabin in 2004

Why mike hatton chose Smoky Mountains

What makes this cabin unique

Our home is famously "two hours from everything" but near many conveniences.

Peaceful and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was really nice. It was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The location was pretty secluded but convenient if we needed to hit any stores. It was close enough to Nantahala whitewater rafting and Tallulah Gorge for hiking. The king bed, though, was not very comfortable since there was a bump in the middle. All in all it was a really nice getaway and we'd stay again.

Wonderful, relaxing retreat!

  • 4 of 5

This property is much better than described. The view is amazing! The cabin is charming and comfortable, well-stocked with anything you could possibly need. It was quiet and private, but only 10 minutes to downtown Murphy. Our only complaint was that the master bed wasn't very comfortable to us, however, the bed in the loft was extremely comfortable!! We would definitely book this rental again!

Great for Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay at your cabin. It was a great honeymoon location. Very private, yet only a few minutes away from town. The view is amazing. We hope one day to come back and visit again.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property is better than advertised. It couldn't feel much more remote yet is still less than a 20 minute drive to nearly anything you need. The house was beautifully decorated, a well stocked kitchen, and BEAUTIFUL views from the decks. The hot tub was ready to go when we arrived and was used frequently. We were able to travel to wonderful hiking trails for all abilities and beautiful waterfalls within a reasonable drive. Our only disappointment was that we spent so much time on the trails that we wished we had another day just to enjoy the cabin itself. Would recommend to anyone looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle but still wanting activities or shopping within a reasonable distance.

And the owner could not have been easier to work with and could not have been more helpful in helping to plan our trip. Thanks for a great trip and for sharing your wonderful cabin!

Beautiful cabin, inside and out. Great views and loved the Hot Tub. Close to many attractions. Fire Creek was breathtaking. Our granddaughter loved everything. This is a special place that will always be in our hearts. Thanks for your help and generosity. We will be back soon!!

My husband and I needed a quite, long weekend get away after the hustle and bustle of the holidays and didn't want to go anywhere too "touristy". We were very happy with this cabin and with the owners, Mike and his wife. Couldn't have been more accommodating and even turned the hot-tub on prior to our arrrival so that it would be ready. We got slightly lost, but called and he talked us to the cabin and made sure we arrived safely. It was very clean, modern and had everything we needed. The view and seclusion were just what we wanted. Perfect area - not far from Cherokee or TN with the National Forrest. We enjoyed a massage in nearby Hiwassee, and the drive to Cleveland TN thru the Cherokee National Forrest with its beauty. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all for a few days. We are already planning our trip back next year and will stay here again! No complaints.
