Murphy: leave your worries back at home

The charming historic town of Murphy lies in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, along the confluence of the Valley and Hiwassee rivers. This is a place to leave your worries and responsibilities back home and immerse yourself in the gorgeous scenery and mountain air. It doesn't matter if you've brought your walking boots, fishing rod and reel or bicycle, you'll find somewhere near your Murphy vacation rental to satisfy your outdoorsy itch. With just a few Murphy vacation rentals on offer, the town never gets too crowded, giving you the opportunity to explore this spectacular part of North Carolina in relative solitude.

Things to do

Pick up a steal at Murphy's markets

Murphy might be small, but it's not short on things to do off the trails. If you find yourself in town on a Saturday, the weekly Farmers' Market is a great place to pick up fresh local produce to take back to your Murphy vacation rental. Talking about markets, the Tuesday flea market is a great place to riffle around for a bargain, as are the town's antique shops. You can get stuck into all sorts of activities, from basket weaving to fly fishing. Feeling lucky? Down at Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino you can test your chances on the tables and slots.

Activities

Family fun in Murphy

Get yourself ready for one of the most exciting outdoorsy adventure spots in North Carolina. You can take your pick when it comes to activities. On the first day you could be kayaking across Hiwassee Lake, on the next hiking along a section of the spectacular world-renowned Appalachian National Scenic Trail and the next fly fishing for local trout or bass. The fun doesn't stop there, though. Thrill-seekers can hurtle around the trails on quad bikes or ride the white-water rapids on the Ocoee River. You can even take to the skies on a pleasure flight to see it all from above or take over the controls during a flying lesson.

Weather

Summer hordes or winter solitude in Murphy

The peak summertime months are the busiest in town. Adventurous families descend on the Murphy vacation rentals during the school breaks to escape the stuffy cities and hit the walking trails. For some, the sky-high temperature makes outdoor activities a little tricky. For more agreeable climes, you should make a beeline for the Murphy vacation rentals in spring or fall. You'll also save a few bucks as the rental prices dip before and after the summer highs. Murphy is deserted by travelers during winter, but if you're looking for complete solitude, it might be just the ticket.

Natural features

Murphy: nature at its very best

If you are wondering what sort of wildlife you'll spot when you stay in a Murphy vacation rental, wonder no longer. In the nearby Smoky Mountains there's a thriving population of elks which have grown to 200 strong after being introduced in 2001. There's a long list of smaller critters which scamper around the countryside. You won't need to look hard to spot squirrels, chipmunks and even the odd ground hog, though the highlights are catching a glimpse of an elusive coyote, bobcat or even an endangered wolf. Just remember to bring your camera.
