We left out for a weekend drive with no destination. We found ourselves in Murphy. We enjoyed the flea market there and ate dinner. All hotels were booked and it looked like we would have to drive an hour or more to find a place to stay. Passed by the sign and called River Cove Cabins around 9:30pm. We were... More

My husband and I happened up on these sweet little cabins located on the Nottely River. The owner was very accommodating. The cabin was very clean. Very reasonably priced! Beautiful location and view! Sweet cat named dog. We would love to stay here again.

Ok so website says no refunds due to weather- understandable. Had sent in HALF of amount due. Hurricane weather including flash floods redirected us away from NC and toward Arkansas. Owner would not offer partial credit toward another visit . As a returning customer I did expect that . So they lose us as an annual returning customer. No worries-... More

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
