Description from owner

Gorgeous, like new, 2BR, 2BA chalet style cabin that sleeps up to 6 people. Beautiful wooded acreage for scenic year-round view. This home is beautifully and comfortably furnished and fully equipped for a wonderful vacation.

There is a bedroom and bathroom on each floor. Both bedrooms have comfortable queen-size beds. The loft bedroom also has a comfortable daybed with a pop-up trundle. These beds allow sleeping for up to 6 people without that uncomfortable sleeper sofa!

There are TVs in the living room and both bedrooms. There's a DVD player and a selection of movies in the living room.

The kitchen has everything you need: full size fridge, cooktop stove, over-the-stove microwave, dishwasher, all pots, pans, dishes, etc. There is a breakfast bar in addition to the dining table and chairs. The dining area overlooks the deck and the scenery beyond.

The gas fireplace is wonderful to take the chill out first thing in the morning or for that cozy evening.

There is a large deck in front of the cabin and a covered deck on the side of the cabin, complete with 2 rockers.

We do not rent to Singles under age 25.

Free high-speed wireless internet. You can easily keep in touch with friends and family while at the cabin.

You won't want to leave. We have guests who return year after year.

Sorry, we do not allow pets.

Smoking is not permitted in the cabin.

Beds: 2 Queen Beds, 2 Twin Beds

About the area

The cabin has great access with paved road all the way to our driveway. The road is not steep. It's very conveniently located close to "downtown" Murphy. We're about halfway between the two major rafting rivers (Ocoee and Nantahala) -- only about 30 minutes to either one. Everything western North Carolina has to offer is an easy day-trip. Then you can return to Murphy and your cozy home to relax. We're close to a large flea market that's open on the weekends (Decker's Flea Market). Murphy has many unique restaurants as well as the popular fast food restaurants. There's a beautiful river-walk park called Konehete Park that has a walking path along the river and several benches and picnic tables. It's really nice and great photo-ops.

“Beautiful home”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2016

This house was a great place to stay. It was very clean and easy to access from all paved roads. The neighborhood was very inviting. Everything we could have needed was here in addition to other thoughtful extras and beautiful decorating touches. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

“Comfortable and cozy.”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2016

We enjoyed our stay in the Murphy cabin. It was comfortable and cozy and the fireplace was fabulous! It adjusted to the temperature in the house and turned itself on and off as needed. It certainly added warmth and coziness to our stay.

“Great time at Hummingbird Hill”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2015

Perfect place for relaxing and getting over the stress of Atlanta traffic/road construction. We love this place and we are close to friends on Rockridge Rd. Beautiful clean cabin with everything you need. Eight days and got there just in time to see the leaves start to change (a couple of thirty degree nights helped). Always hate to leave N.C. Back to the heat of Florida and the I-4 mess in Orlando. Word of advice - during leaf peeper season be prepared for heavy traffic going to Pigeon Forge. Then again, the visit to The Island attraction was fun and we saw moma bear with her cubs and elk on the way back to Murphy.

“A wonderful vacation spot!”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2015

This is a place for a fun and memorable vacation. The owner supplied all the necessitates for cooking, cleaning, washing, and bedding. It was neatly decorated inside and out. It had a very homey feel to it. We enjoyed looking at the wildlife outside while sitting in the rocking chairs. We saw a lot of deer, hummingbirds, and squirrels close by. We also enjoyed the walks up the hill on the same street. There are a lot of fun outdoor activities for everyone too. Some of them being waterfalls, lakes, white water rafting, zip lining, and flea markets. If you are a fan of fudge, like we are, there is a great fudge shop about an hour away in Highlands. We also enjoyed getting fresh fruit and vegetables at Decker's Flea Market. Overall, I highly recommend this cabin to friends and family. - The Hurley family

Owner's reply: Thanks to the Hurleys for the great review!

“Great place”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2015

My son, my cousin and myself stayed here while we visited family in the area. The house had everything we needed (three men) and made us feel very welcome. We were even able to grill a dinner for my brother. Really recomend this house to all.

Owner's reply: Thanks to these guys for the great review!! I'm so glad they enjoyed it!

“Great value for the money”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2014

This cabin is so clean and comfortable. . a bit far from things we wanted to do, but it is a great cabin that we hope to stay again and again. We will bring our bikes and kayak next time which will allow us more activities close to the cabin.

Owner's reply: I'm so glad these renters loved my cabin. There are many activities within about an hour's drive from my cabin. Many people go off and have day trips, then return to the comfort of a very nice place to relax. I appreciate the review!

“Chillin in the Mntns”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2013

The cabin was just a great place to stay. It is centrally located for daytime travels to the Smokies or the Blue Ridge Mnts in N GA. We trailered the motorcycles up and had good weather except for one day of rain. The road is paved up to the driveway then there is an uphill climb about 30ft on gravel getting you up to the flat parking area around the cabin. I would not recommend for the novice or faint of heart for the entry and exit for motorcycles. The cabin was well stocked with about everything needed, no cell phone service for my Att phone but my dad had Verizon and had no problem calling out. For some reason we never could get hooked into the wifi and we tried to call on the landline a couple times to local restaurants but could not get a connection. Beautiful area where the cabin is, well kept up community and the county roads and right of ways also kept up. Nice yogurt shop in Murphy where you can build your own dessert and Brothers Restaurant also pretty good, if you try them on the wknd prepare for a wait as everyone else knows about the great food and reasonable prices. Would recommend anyone looking to stay in this area to give Lana a call and book your stay, very nice cabin and great location!!

“Summer retreat”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2013

My sister and I stayed in Lana's beautiful chalet over Thanksgiving and vowed to return. So we came back in July to experience it in a different season. The trees are so majestic and they make the chalet feel so private and sheltered. The chalet is so warm and inviting and comfortable -- good beds, nice furniture, well stocked kitchen, big TV and nice new grill. But the thing we enjoyed the most was the peaceful, quiet time in a lovely part of the country. Thank you, Lana!

Owner's reply: Everyone seems to love my chalet and I'm very thankful for the great reviews. Making my guests feel at home was and is my goal. Thanks to Janet and Ruthann for this review!

“Great Motorcycle Trip”

Reviewed 25 May 2013

Lana, what a great place. Thanks! Me and my two buddies had a blast staying at your place. Water pressure was incredible. Wished we could have stayed long. We will certainly be calling again. Thanks from the Road Dogs.

Owner's reply: Everyone loves my place and I'm always glad when they share these wonderful reviews! I know the Cherokee County area is a great place to ride motorcycles and am glad they had such a good time.

“Very comfy cabin in the mountains!”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2012

What a wonderful five days my family of four spent at the Hummingbird cabin in Murphy, NC. It was way too warm for a fire in the fireplace, but the air conditioning was ice cold. Access to the cabin was off of a paved road about 2 miles from the four lane highway, so any type of vehicle will get you there with no problems. The water tasted great and there was plenty of pressure for showers. It was nice to come home with a suitcase full of clean clothes, since the cabin had a very modern washer and dryer. There was a beautiful, large deck that looked out on trees. There was plenty of privacy due to the thick amount of trees that surrounded the cabin. Although we didn't use it, there was a charcoal grill on the deck, with charcoal provided in the pantry. My wife and I stayed in the master room on the main floor, while our two teenage daughters stayed up in the loft, with it's own full bath. The kitchen came complete with anything you would need for cooking a full meal or light snacks. There was even a dishwasher. Probably my only disappointment, was when the morning came and we had to leave. Oh, yeah...did I mention the cabin has high speed wi-fi. At times we had three laptops going and it never sputtered. There are two flat screen TV's and one regular TV that must be on dish network, since you get so many channels. This was the perfect place for us to stay, and I can't wait to go back...hopefully this fall!

Owner's reply: I love my renters! I love hearing that they enjoyed their stay in my cabin. I strive to ensure all my renters have the same experience. Bob sent me a personal email telling me what a great time they had and that they plan to come back. It was also nice that he went online to post a review. That just makes my day!
