Description from owner

Noah's Lark Mountain Cottage

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 a rustic cottage with all the amenities needed for a true mountain experience. There is no hot tub. It is located too far from a hub to have internet access. However, you can receive internet service via most smart phones. In general, and judging the feed back from renters over the last ten years, the majority of mobile phones work to varying degrees.

Noah' 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 bas e 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.


-2 bedrooms with linens provided

-The cottage can sleep up to 5 people.

-2 bathrooms. (includes master bath).

-Plenty of parking for cars and boat trailers. Please use caution when backing out of the parking space next to the cabin. Especially at night. There is a drop off if you back your vehicle too far. There is a wooden fence with reflectors that marks the drop off but please be careful.

NOTE: Internet and Mobile phones. There is no internet access. The location is too far from a hub to get an adequate signal. Although I cannot guarantee it, most smart phones can pick up a signal


Adult dogs are welcome. Damage deposit. Sorry, no cats. Our 3 cats are treated like the Royals at our home but have been banished in shame from the cabin.

No smoking in the cottage. Personally, I love to sit out on the deck and fire up a cigar at sunset.

My daughter and I decided to spend Thanksgiving in the mountains this Thanksgiving. We spoke about it in the past, but with it just being the two of us, we didn't know how much fun we would have. Well, my mom, niece and nephew ended up coming and we had a ball! The cabin was CLEAN, FULLY STOCKED, and the scenery was gorgeous. We really enjoyed ourselves.

The peace and quiet of the cabin was so relaxing. We enjoyed our time there and would rent it again. Just wish there was more yard to the cabin. We were able to have our pet dog with us which really meant a lot. The only thing was the beds were not real comfortable. Just having the time to unwind in this cabin was great. Thank you very much Les our trip was worthwhile.

The cabin was perfect. The views were amazing. We were able to relax and enjoy each others company as we took in stride no Wifi. It was a wonderful experience no to rely on technology to have a great time. Planning to return soon.

“Great secluded cabin with amazing views!”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2015

We planned on staying at Noah's Lark for 4 nights but enjoyed ourselves so much we stayed an extra night! The drive up to the cabin from the main road takes about 15 min but is very scenic and fun. The cabin has amazing views of the valley below and mountains. You are nice and secluded which was exactly what we were looking for. It's about 30 min to any of the bigger towns (Murphy, NC or Blue Ridge, GA), we didn't mind the drives as the scenery is nice and the roads are fun! Our 6 year old daughter really enjoyed constantly crossing the borders of NC, TN and GA. This is the perfect quiet mountain getaway with loads to see and do around if you are willing to drive a little bit. The cabin was fully equipped with anything and everything you may need! The gas fireplace is awesome - it got cold for a few nights and being able to just click it on was so easy. We also really enjoyed being able to bring our dog along, it was so nice to be able to take a family hike and include her. It was the perfect quiet thanksgiving mountain get away that we needed! We'll be back for sure!

Our stay was great! The cottage is just like the pictures and the video the owner can send you the link for. We drove and saw the fall colors on the 50 mile skyway drive in Tennessee and North Carolina. We enjoyed the view and the quietness of the area.

“The Perfect "Get Away From it All"”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2014

Noah's Lark was a perfect vacation for my husband and me. Even better, we were able to include our two dogs on the adventure. The cabin had breathtaking views, and was immaculate and fully stocked with everything but food for the week. The owner was available by phone and by text to assist with questions. We hope to return soon for another visit. Thank you, Les!

My 3rd visit. So quiet and peaceful. Everything you need.sleep, eat, watch great TV. Cook out on the grill or sit on the deck and watch the sun slip behind the mountains. The only way you couldn't luv it is to not go. :)

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.
