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

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

My husband and I stayed at River Cove Cabins shortly after I had major surgery in 2009. We came across the website for River Cove and after speaking with Wanda on the phone we felt very good about choosing their place for our mini-vacation. We were looking for a place away from the hustle and bustle where we could just... More
