This IS the cozy little cabin that the imagination conjures whenever "cozy little cabin" is mentioned. This 2/1, 720 sqft log cabin transports you to a simpler time and place to enhance your getaway. Open-raftered ceilings, wide plank flooring and hand made decor, gives the Rivercane an historic mountain feel, while being barely 20 years old. This cabin is located just 1.1 mile from the John C Campbell Folkschool and a mere 1/2 mile off Brasstown Rd. It's cozy dead end location is very private without being remote. Nestled into a wooded hilltop setting, you'll feel hidden from the world, while being able to gaze across a slice of Brasstown Valley from the porch and half the cabin. Every room has a woodland view, ever-changing as the sun makes its daily trip and the seasons serve up an ever changing palette. It's the perfect home base to either recharge your batteries from your work-a-day world OR regroup your thoughts after a creative day at the Folkschool.
To stay connected if you must, there is wi-fi and a smart TV (no cable), wi-fi or device ready, an equipped kitchen, all linens with washer & dryer. Both bedrooms (one queen, one full bed) are ground floor. While there is a working fireplace and outdoor fire pit, we have determined these to be temporarily out of commission, due to the drought and recent fires in neighboring counties.
To unplug if you wish, you never have to step off the property or out of the neighborhood, to see deer, turkey, fox, stars and moonlight. There are outdoor activities aplenty, with trails, rivers and lakes peppering the area. There are restaurants, art events and music in Murphy only 7 miles away. In this picturesque mountain town, you'll also find antique shops along with craft and specialty shops.There is also a new Casino in Murphy that is a few minutes east of downtown Murphy. If you find yourself in a medical emergency, Murphy Medical Center, is only 4 miles away, in Peachtree.
Of course the biggest draw in our little Brasstown is the John C. Campbell Folkschool, founded in 1925, which offers over 750 classes a year in 19 studios. It has music, dance and community events that are open to the public. Check out their website to see what might interest you.
Finally, be sure not to overload your agenda, because the best part about a mountain getaway is doing nothing at all.
