The cabin was very well appointed and well stocked with all of the basics. We had an absolutely great time and would highly recommend this rental!!
We stayed here the 1st week of July after our original plans for the week fell through only a month earlier. Frankly, I wasn't expecting to find much for a popular week on short notice at a rate that wouldn't make me wince. But this cabin exceeded my wildest expectations! It is absolutely as gorgeous as the photos, and is easily accessible from the main road with none of those twisty, narrow mountain roads that take years off my life! Yet the property has been so thoughtfully landscaped that except for the occassional sound of a passing car, you'd never know you weren't in the middle of nowhere! There are plenty of outdoorsy things to do in the area, quite enough to keep my outdoorsy, never sit still husband happy for a week, and the cabin is a beautiful and comfortable place to hang out for those of us with less ambition! The internet is not superfast, but it kept a 17-, 18-, and 20-year old happy for a week with only a couple forays into Murphy to the Daily Grind for faster internet... The owner is very responsive - I emailed her with a question about the lockbox and got a response in less than half an hour. Highly recommend this cabin, and would definitely stay there again.
Beautiful house - very, very clean upon arrival! Downstairs bedroom was perfect for my two girls to share with a large bathroom. The upstairs bedroom suite was very quiet and peaceful with two french doors closing out the downstairs sounds. The upstairs bathroom was also very clean and nice. The downstairs den was very appealing with the large wall of windows to watch the beautiful backyard (saw many birds flying in and out of the tall trees). Very relaxing den. Comfy couch. My only tiny wish would have been to have a few more seating options in the den such as a comfy recliner or love seat. The outside backyard was beautiful and the deck was great when we grilled out one night. An extra propane of gas was already waiting! Liliana, the owner, was always helpful with questions via email. She truly has a beautiful home in Murphy! We fell in love with the town of Murphy as well as the surrounding towns of Hiawassee, Franklin, Sylva, and Blue Ridge. We stayed busy all week and were never bored. Here are some great things we did in the area: Riverwalk in Murphy; Lake Chatuge public swimming beach in Hiawassee, GA; Drive in Movies in Blue Ridge, GA; Drove the loop to Dillsboro and back; Drove to Highlands (great waterfalls and curvy roads :) ; visited Helen, GA; visited Field in the Woods; and most of these were free (except for the cost of fudge! LOL). Overall, it was the first time we had visited this area of the NC mountains and as usual everyone was very friendly everywhere we went!
My sisters and I wanted to spend some quality time with our sister who lives in Murphy. My sister, who lives in Murphy, lost her husband last year. The cabin was a perfect place. The cabin was well furnished with all that we needed. After stopping and buying some groceries, we enjoyed our time with each other. Great Sister Time.
Cabin was great, very clean and new looking, very nicely appointed, easy to find and get to. Everything you could ask for.
