    Soothing colors, cozy decor, and tons of natural light provide the ultimate home-away-from-home during your North Carolina retreat. Kick back on the couch in the living room and use the wireless internet access to surf the net or plan the next day's adventures.

    After a day of hiking through the Nantahala National Forest, turn on the gas fireplace to get the chill out of the air and steam your favorite shows on the flat-screen TV with Roku. The spacious living room opens up into the fully equipped kitchen, where the chef in your group will whip up culinary masterpieces during your stay.

    When you're not cooking inside or eating out at one of the tasty restaurants downtown, step outside and cook dinner on the cowboy grill. Burgers, hot dogs, and veggies all taste better when you cook them under the stars in the great outdoors!

    At night, find your way to either of the cozy queen-sized beds, which both offer ultra-soft sheets. You're bound to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for another day of Smoky Mountain and Nantahala National Forest adventures!

    Utilize the gorgeous covered front porch each morning to drink your coffee, meditate, or practice yoga. There's nothing quite like getting ready for the day while breathing in the fresh mountain air and listening to the birds sing in the trees.

    In addition to all of the amazing amenities offered at the cabin, your group will have access to a local gym that boasts a pool, tennis courts, and workout facility where you can take fitness classes.

    -- THE LOCATION --

    Located in the Nantahala National Forest - at the bottom of the Smoky Mountain range - this is cabin is in the perfect location to get away from it all! Though you'll feel secluded and tucked away during your stay at this cabin, you'll only be a short drive from some of the area's top attractions! Great shops, delicious restaurants, gambling, and outdoor adventures are right at your fingertips.

    Seeking a thrill? The Nantahala National Forest and the Smoky Mountains are just your vacation destination! Try whitewater rafting down the Hiwassee River or rent a boat for a day of water skiing and fishing on Hiwassee Lake or Nantahala Lake.

    If you prefer dry land to water, go zip lining through the forest or explore the area on horseback. The roads that criss-cross through the mountains are perfect for motorcycle enthusiasts and mountain bikers in your group. For a more leisurely day, play putt-putt with your family or go gem mining!

    Head a few miles down the road to press your luck at Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino! Play the slots or tables and take your winnings to dine at one of the casino's restaurants.

    After a fun-filled day, head 8 miles to downtown Murphy to peruse the antique shops and boutiques. Stop by one of the local restaurants, like ShoeBootie's Cafe, for some Southern comfort food!

    Great Place for a Getaway

    Wonderful, cozy, clean, comfy, quiet, with great amenities. Very close to town but still secluded enough for a peaceful getaway from the grind. Highly recommend.

    A great relaxing cabin

    Reviewed by: Steve B. on


    My wife and I stayed here for our 25th anniversary and it was peaceful and relaxing just like we were looking for. The cabin is beautiful and looks like it is brand new. The area is secluded but close enough to Murphy that you can easily get into town in a few minutes. The decks are nice and there is a fire pit outside. Though we didn't use the fire pit, it was stocked with dry wood to use. The view off the back deck is nice and the front deck is large and well furnished. The flowers all around the cabin make it really look and feel more like home more than a rental. Inside, everything (lightswitches, pantry and cabinets) is clearly labeled and easy to find. It is well stocked with utensils and everything we needed to cook meals. They even had frosted mugs in the freezer when we arrived. The washing machine and dryer worked well and the shower had plenty of pressure and the water was hot quickly. The TV's use cable free services such as Netflix. I was able to load our Vudu account on the Roku and the Blue-ray player upstairs and watch our own movies. The Internet worked well and our phones and streaming worked without an issue. The cabin is a good mix of modern and rustic with its solar lights outside, bright LED bulbs inside along with streaming services but all in a log cabin look and feel. There is a crew working on the road (Kate's Cove) and once it is finished, the drive up to the cabin will be a breeze. If you use Waze it is easy to find the cabin and it will navigate you right to it. Brenda was friendly and very helpful. She checked in with us before and after we arrived to be sure everything was fine. I would highly recommend staying at the Rocking M for any trips through the area.
