Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

We have spend two nights in this nice and quiet river front house. This is a very nice house right at the river, we enjoyed the tubes and our golden doodle loved being in the water.

Everything was very clean and the Kitchen had everything you would need. I do recommend this property to family and friends.

Second stay at this property

  • 5 of 5

Trout Rivers Inn is a perfect place for a small family with a dog. This is our second year to come here. It is very clean which is primary on my list. It is not fancy but is cozy. They have everything you could need for a vacation and then some. We cooked every night at the house and had everything we needed including a fabulous grill. The house is centrally located near a Ingles grocery store, Walmart, restaurants, gas stations, shops.

We really enjoyed the new hiking trails in Murphy called the Piney Knobb trails. Biking these trails are allowed too. Our dog loved being on "vacation." she remembered it from last year, jumped out of the car and raced down to the river where she waded into the water, then ran around the property chasing her ball. They have a bed for the dog and blankets to cover the furniture if your dog must get up on the furniture. No dogs in the beds and I so appreciate this.

We will come back!

Delightful riverside cabin close to the Folk School.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week here while attending a class at the nearby John C. Campbell Folk School. The house was clean and comfortable with two great porches - one where we could listen to the river and the other where we could enjoy a quiet woods view with its own babbling creek.

Robbie and RJ were great hosts and responded quickly to all requests. My wife and I enjoyed staying here and highly recommend it.

Peaceful and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay here and we absolutely love it! A beautiful river runs directly in front. I love listening to river as we relax in the evening. Super nice jacuzzi. The house is beautifully furnished and has everything you could need. Eibbie and her husband are very nice and easy to reach if you have any problems. Fenced back yard and even doggie blankets and bowls to make your pet happy. We will be back!
