The Whole Reason I Started Coming to Murphy, NC!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful view was the reason I first came to Murphy years ago, and party of why I continue to stay in Murphy at least once every year. And while I've enjoyed most of the other cabins I've stayed in, this one is by far the best! The decks and many seats and tables were perfect for eating meals outside or just enjoying the spectacular view. But, you can enjoy almost as much of that view from inside with the perfectly placed windows. The three full baths are great for any family, while the kitchen was packed with everything we needed for real cooking (and you can still enjoy the view!).

I do wish the pool table was full-size (or that I had known ahead of time to expect a 1/2 size table) and there was room to play - we followed the owners' request and did not move the table, making it basically impossible to play - unless you were to use the method shown on an episode of Seinfeld, using a conductor's baton in place of a pool cue. I'm not a crazed pool fan, but I do like to be able to play when I stay in a cabin.

In short, this will be the first cabin I check on the next time I'm planning a trip to Murphy.

Our stay at Skyland Retreat was fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful. Everything that you may need is there. The only problem we had was the lock. Apparently the wifi was down and we had to contact the help desk. We contacted the home owner and was able to get in. Would stay there again.

Would give it more stars if I could!

  • 5 of 5

The view is absolutely breathtaking, both during the day and at night, and that alone would have made it worth the trip. The furnishings and decorations made it feel very much like home, and we had no trouble getting comfortable and relaxed as soon as we arrived. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals with, which is really a spectacular touch. There are a couple of different grocery stores just a short drive away, so even though we accidentally left a few things at home, we were able to prepare all our meals and buy some extra snacks. We enjoyed our time there so much that we started planning our next stay before we even checked out! We would advise not to leave on a Sunday though, check-out time is 10am, and that's when the trash drop-off opens on Sundays.
