Murphy, North Carolina
My cabin is new to the Rental Market...AND I can see North Carolina, Georgia & Tennessee From My House!
Let me be clear: This house is the bomb diggety! My Cabin is 'artsy, crafts, cozy' with tasteful furnishings and personal touches throughout. It's perfect, it really is! (No Pets Please & only two guests permitted)
We feature a screened in porch that is carpeted and feels like an extension of the living/dining area. The porch has killer views, a dining table, 2 rockers and a lounge chair. I guarantee you, you'll spend all your time out there. Right below the porch is an open deck taking full advantage of the ever changing mountain views. It's glorious. The deck has a great swing, picnic table, lounge chair and gas grill. At the 'Retreat', being outdoors is where it's at...

The view was amazing! The whole cabin was warm and comfy. Everything was nicely decorated, and the master bedroom's bed was so comfortable. All the pamphlets in the basket were very helpful, it had an ad for Gallery 26 which was a cute little shop with kind people working there. The scenery was amazing and I spent most of my... more

This is the second time of coming to this cabin and the 4th time booking with Joanie. Joanie is the greatest and ensures that her guests are well informed and provided for. I would definitely recommend this cabin and booking cabin vacation rentals through Joanie. Our visit in December 2015 was most relaxing and the views awesome. Cabin is cozy... more

I have rented several homes in Murphy, and Above The Clouds Retreat is by far the cutest and most comfortable one that I've rented. Joanie has thought of everything to make you comfortable. There are flat screen televisions in both the living room and master bedroom. The king size bed was super comfortable. I haven't slept so soundly in months.... more

Management response:

Carol, I must say that I absolutely LOVED having you at the Retreat, loved your emails about how happy you were and your descriptions about the sunrises, that I too, find spectacular! You were a wonderful guest. Knowing that someone as appreciative of nature as I am is enjoying my "Retreat" and taking care of it like I would makes... more
