  • A Slice of Heaven


    We went for my husband's birthday weekend and it was fabulous! The views were spectacular, the attention to detail was thoughtful-it had everything we needed. We cooked 3 nice meals and as a foody-the kitchen is well stocked. It's a short drive to downtown Murphy-we went to the farmers market, went shopping, and enjoyed lunch at Chevelle's. There is something for everyone here. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home on top of a mountain.

  • Beautiful Home with Great Views & Amenities


    This home is beautiful! We had a few hiccups which I will detail below. We are pretty easy going people so no major problems for us & the pros definitely outweighed the cons.

    The home is new, plenty of room and is stocked with games, cards, a pool table, & hot tub. Tons of extra towels. Comfortable blankets to sit on the couches with and relax. Kitchen is stocked with a coffee maker (not keurig), crock pot, cookie sheets, pans, mixing bowls, silverware, plenty of plates, cups, etc. Plenty of knives, grilling utensils. The traeger was a little dirty but they have pellets on site and it was a nice perk. The house was very warm and inviting. Nicely styled. The hot tub was great. WiFi was great in the house - my kids had no issues and relied on WiFi for tablets, etc.

    The place is secluded for sure, seems like you are up there all alone which is exactly what we wanted.

    Things that could be better:

    1) The beds are very firm. The king bed upstairs didn't seem super stable. Very squeeky and we had to fix the supports under the bed before we even slept in it. Sheets kept slipping off mattress.

    2) The water heater was not working when we got there. We had to call the property mgr and owner who both responded promptly but did not know how to fix. They were going to send an electrician/plumber out but my husband fixed it. The GFCI outlet in basement (or outside) was tripped - so if it happens to you look for a tripped outlet in basement or outside.

    3) There was a TON of dead lady bugs all over the floors when we arrived. Like it hadn't been pre-cleaned for our arrival. There were lady bugs and stink bugs flying around all rooms as well. I know it is winter and they were looking for somewhere warm to go...but we have stayed in plenty of cabins in the NC mountains and haven't had this type of bug problem. There is bug spray in the house, but there were so many that it didn't make a big impact.

    4) There were 2 cute little mice in the downstairs area. Again, it's winter and they wanted somewhere warm...not a big deal for us but just an FYI.

    Overall a great place. We'll keep it on our list of cabins to visit. Would love it if they would put a wood burning fire pit out back so we could be a little more outdoorsy!

    Appreciated the owner and property managers responsiveness but there usually isn't much that can be done quickly in these situations. The views and amenities made it a great weekend.

    Manager's Response:

    From the owners: Hi Brittany, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay.
    We took note of your comments and have had an electrician address the tripping issue for the water heater - thank you for bringing that to our attention.

    The pest control company made an extra visit to respray for bugs. They also sealed a potential opening from the crawl space and set traps. We will be re-insulating the crawl space as well.

    We are currently working on installing an exterior fire pit area and just waiting for the ground to thaw a bit to get this work scheduled.

    We hope you will come back and enjoy it when it is finished. Thank you again for visiting!

  • Our Own ‘Yellowstone’ Escape!!


    This amazing mountain cabin getaway over exceeded our expectations and more. We must have played 50 games of pool and used the hot tub every day! The views were so breathtaking that pictures just can’t do it justice. Don’t worry if you want to go when the weather is chillier! Just bundle up with a good book by one of the many fireplaces! I have shared this listing with all my family and friends. I hope you enjoy it as much as my boyfriend and I did. Thank you for being our “Yellowstone” retreat! (We love the new show Yellowstone and it inspired this trip).
