Perfect location if touring area. Motorcycle friendly folks. Close to Moonshiner 28, Tail of Dragon, Cherohala skyway, Cherokee etc etc. Clean no frills cabins. Very homey and rustic. Owner lady was very nice, her husband not too social. Def will go back! Great price and perfect location.

I absolutely love this place! I stayed in cabin #4. It's right next to the river. Each cabin is different, so choose depending on your needs. Very relaxing and peaceful. They have a campfire every night, if you feel like socializing. There is a small pier if you want to fish. There is wifi, but it's a little spotty. With... More

We just showed up and were lucky enough to get a beautiful cabin for three days. It sat right on the river and proved to be the final touch to a great vacation. It was quiet and just plain nice! I actually caught a nice trout, a Bass, and a hard fighting catfish from right outside our cabin. The cabin... More

We had a very relaxing time at the River Cove Cabins. It was the type of place we always look for. We're not into fancy, just nice clean, out of the main stream places. Although it rained a lot, it was still one of our best vacations. Gary and Wanda very nice people. The dog and cat were great too.... More

My husband and I just returned from a three night stay at River Cove Cabins. And we loved this place. Our weekend started out as a two day weekend. We were looking for a quiet relaxing place to get away from work and kids for our anniversary. And we found just that and more here. We loved it so much... More

We just returned from a WAY TOO SHORT weekend getaway at River Cove Cabins. We stayed in cabin #6 and loved it. The 2 bedroom cabin was perfect for the 4 of us, although we spent most of our time on the front porch just listening to the river rush by. Cabin 6 sits back a little bit from the... More

Want to say the owners are fabulous.... My husband and I decided on a road trip and landed in Murphy NC. I called late in the evening, and they warmly greeted me. Only thing I suggest is the mattress I'm cabin 1 desperately needs to be changed as it sags in the middle. Other than that we loved it and... More

It is important to us that everyone is comfortable during their stay at the cabins, so we have just replaced the mattress in Cabin #1 with a brand new Serta Mattress for the comfort of our guests. More
