Description of the Murphy vacation cabin rental
Perched on the western slope of Bear Mountain our cottage, Noah’s Lark, provides stunning year 'round views of the Appalachian Mountains and the Cherokee National Forest. In the valley below are a few family farms with green pastures for horses and cattle. The cottage is located in a tri-state area. From the wrap around deck one can see portions of Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina. Noah's Lark is located in North Carolina and is 25 miles west of Murphy NC and 20 miles north of Blue Ridge Georgia.
Over the years whitewater rafters and kayakers have used the cottage as a base of operations because of its proximity to the Ocoee Rivers rapids, site of the 1996 Olympics for whitewater rafting. We have made it a priority to provide a comfortable setting suitable for family vacations, a couple’s secluded get away, nature lovers and sports enthusiasts. Unlike many mountain cabins, there is ample parking space available for cars, smaller RV’s and boat trailers.

This cabin is immaculate. We enjoyed home away from home with all you could ever ask for. We were able to cook in or out, enjoy the fireplace, watch tv, play games provided with the cabin, or go out to eat nearby. We travelled easily to Tenn. and Ga. all close by. comfortable beds and very clean. Thanks Paula. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Just What We Needed
August 16, 2012
We found this cabin so comfortable and there were many thoughtful touches provided by the owners ( full size bars of soap, Kleenex, extra paper towels and t.p., plenty of bath and kitchen linens, salt & pepper. etc.) just things that we were not expecting. The reception for cell phones and internet (with our router) and Direct T.V. was excellent. It was nice to park on a level spot right by the door to the screen porch and not have to climb a single step to unload the car. The first time finding our way to the cabin was a bit tricky due to some of the street/road signs missing but we learned to follow the blue signs for New Hope Church and that made it a lot easier. We enjoyed the 9 hole golf course at the foot of the mountain and the course employees were exceptionally nice. There were some really good eating places in Murphy which were very reasonable. One of the best parts of our stay was watching the gorgeous sunsets every evening. I am happy we chose this cabin to escape from the extreme heat and pesky gnats of south Georgia. We needed a break !!!

We stayed at Noah's Lark for 3 nights and it was perfect for our needs. The screened porch and deck provided great outside accommodations and inside we had all we needed. It was very secluded and had a great sunset view. It was convenient to the whitewater outfitters as well as some nice hiking trails. We'll stay there again.

Nice place to get away. Had my 12 yr. Old Lab w/me, easy in and good walking area.very quiet and private. Only minus ,need non-stick frying pan, at least one. Everything else was real good and well worth the money. U need to go, U won't be disappointed! Very relaxing and secluded. Will B back!

Noah's Lark is a fine cabin-- nothing fancy but clean, nice and acceptable. You can't beat the price. Finding your way to it and from it may be a little challenging-- poorly marked, narow, winding moutain roads, steep driveway etc. (The directions are perfectly good.) We didn't try it after dark but the road access was fine for a Toyota Avalon and Camry. I wouldn't describe the location as extremely isolated but you didn't have to worry about anyone close by (except, possibly, a house up the hill and out of sight and, maybe, a wondering bear). It's a great location to get away from the city but only about 20 minutes to the tourist shopping/eating in Blue Ridge.

After a hair raising ride up the mountain to this cottage, PERFECT! Just what the Doctor ordered.
Noah's Lark Review
July 7, 2010
I enjoyed my stay at Noah's Lark once I got there. It was a beautiful and well equipped house, very serene and gorgeous setting. It would be highly beneficial if solar lighting or some kind of lighting was put up by the arrows leading to the house. It was extremely hard to find and sometimes scarey trying to find it at night because it was so dark, being encased in the woods without any lights. If I'd known the roads leading up to the house were going to be so primitive I'd have used a vehicle other than my marquis. But again, once I got there and got familiar with my surroundings I loved it. I am considering visiting it again in the fall or winter.
Beautiful Views! Cozy Cabin!
November 1, 2009
My family and I stayed at Noah's Lark at the height of leaf season, and it couldn't have been more stunning!! The views from the deck were incredible. The cabin is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Very cozy and comfortable. Charmingly decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Les!!! Jeff, Karin & Hannah Lawrence P.S. If you have the time definitely take Les's advice and go to the Mercier Orchards!!!! MMMM....Yummy Everything!!
