This is first time writing a review, but I was so amazed by Hiwassee River Cabins! The pictures are perfect, the cabin was breath taking, right on the river. I will most definitely come back! The owners treat you like family! Thank You so much! Kim

Thanks Kim and your family!!!! We must say that you all were gallant kayakers braving the obstacles in the river. We enjoyed your friendship and look forward to your return when the itch to 'get away from it all' returns. Take care, God bless! Dave & Pat, original year-round resident owners/operators since 2006.

Gracious hosts, generous accommodations, and a location that cannot be beat. Truly wonderful place right on the river with all the comfort of home and no responsibilities. The river can be a bit cool and rocks are slippery-- water shoes recommended even if your feet aren't tender.

This is our second trip to this cabin and it won't be our last. The cabin sits right in front of the Hiwassee River. It's private, clean and spacious. There are three bedrooms, two upstairs and one downstairs. Dave, the owner, already seems like family.

This is the second time we have rented a cabin here. This place is fantastic. We stayed for a full week both times and have never been more pleased with a place EVER. The cabin is spacious, clean and private. The owner, Dave, is like family already. We'll definitely be booking again.

We rented the cabin for the weekend. We only stayed two nights. The prices were amazing and the location even better. We had friends coming to visit from Raleigh and rented this for us all to stay in. It has three queen size beds and is easily accessible by wheelchair. Upon arrival we realized the satellite was out but Dave... More

My wife and I enjoyed a short stay for our 26th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival on Sunday, Dave advised that the fireplace had a potential gas leak issue and had a repairman out on Monday to take care of it. Problem solved. The grill and kitchen were great. Hot tub was very nice. Cabin was spacious and comfortable. Morning fog... More

Hiwassee River Cabins has two identical cabins right next to each other. Both have porches with a hot tub that faces the Hiwassee River. They are the only cabins on the property and very private. Our family of 19-( the oldest being 65 and the youngest 2 1/2) rented both cabins as we were to attend a family wedding at... More

This was the most restful week we have ever spent ANYWHERE! Beautiful three bedroom cabin with hot tub on the front porch and the river runs right past the front of the property. SO peaceful. We tubed, hiked, visited museums and walked around the little town of Murphy, NC. We opened the windows in the evening and listened to the... More

We had a family reunion and rented both cabins. It was WONDERFUL, peaceful and beautiful. We all LOVED IT. The Hiwassee River runs just below the cabins. You can sit on balconies or porches and watch and listen. We had 11 year olds up to 74 year olds and they all HAD FUN! They floated the river numerous times, played... More
