About the property

Summary 89 Char

Come stay on the romantic Hiwassee River, where you can fish, float, bring your kayak or canoe, cook breakfast, lunch or dinner outside and relax on the huge deck over the river. When you step outside the cabin on the porch, you are just feet away from the River. There is a fenced area for your pets as well. Enjoy the evening around the fire pit or take a stroll down the long paved road, where you'll see wildlife, trees and listen to the rushing river. The cabin sleeps 4 comfortably. There are restaurants nearby as well as boating at Lakes Chatuge, Notely, and Hiwassee. John C. Campbell Folk School and Cherokee Hills Golf & Country Club are less than 5 miles away. The Hiwassee River at this location has trout over 2 feet long in it. Harrah's Casino, 24 hour Walmart, Ingles, and varied shopping and restaurants are minutes away.

About Robbie Thomas

He enjoys off-roading, collector cars, and railroads. Robbie enjoys kayaking, hiking, gardening, and reading. We are both active in volunteering for animal welfare groups.

Robbie Thomas purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Robbie Thomas chose Murphy

We chose this property because of the beautiful location right on the Hiwassee River among the beautiful Smokey Mountains. We both have vacationed in the Smokey Mountains all of our lives.

What makes this cabin unique

You will be right on the Hiwassee River well over 140 feet wide! You can watch and listen to the river from the front porch or sit directly over the river on a large deck! You can also enjoy the fire ring on the river bank as you roast marshmallows and hot dogs or simple enjoy the fire. The deck has a grill for a convenient cookout.

If you bring your dog you will be happy to know that there is a chain link fenced dog area right off of the front porch. River Road itself runs right along the river and makes a great place for both human and dog walks.

So relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our short time here. Truly was a pet friendly place, and our dog loved investigating the new sites and smells. The cabin was well equipped with basic needs and stores nearby to get whatever else we needed. Sitting on the deck over the river was truly a highlight. Most of the other properties had decks on the edge, but hearing and seeing the water flow beneath you is truly relaxing. While this is not the property for large groups, it is truly a hidden gem and one we hope to enjoy again.

Enjoyable and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Great small cottage with many activities in close proximity. It was very well equipped and clean. We spent quite a while sitting on the patio enjoying the views and sounds of the river. When back in that area we would love to stay there again.

Every little detail was thought of!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our get away! Everything from coffee to soft towels was thought out. At dusk the lights came on the deck over the river, how romantic! We had a wonderful stay, thank you for sharing your cabin!

P.S. We have rented numerous cottages and cabins in several states and this is the first time I took the time to write a review. I would highly recommend this cabin and beautiful area.
