Front Porch Paradise...........​

L​oved, loved, loved sitting on the beautiful big porch to relax! It was so peaceful and the back deck is gorgeous as well! Very nice cabin! Highly recommend! ...oh, and also loved that there were two bathrooms! That is a big plus to me when sharing the cabin with friends!

Peace and Quiet

If you love a quiet, peaceful, and relaxing environment, this is the place for you.

Imagine the beauty of nature all around, big comfortable porches and a nice breeze where you can have your morning coffee, after sleeping in a big, cozy bed.

You can also go into town and check out the fun little shops or even go to the nearby casino.

Truly, you can't go wrong by making this your special home away from home get away. I guarantee you'll go again and again. I know I will!

Anniversary Trip

We came to Murphy for our anniversary, we wanted some place low-key and relaxing. We found it! We loved the layout and privacy. It was a 5 star experience!

My wife and I stayed here for our 25th anniversary and it was peaceful and relaxing just like we were looking for. The cabin is beautiful and looks like it is brand new. The area is secluded but close enough to Murphy that you can easily get into town in a few minutes. The decks are nice and there is a fire pit outside. Though we didn't use the fire pit, it was stocked with dry wood to use. The view off the back deck is nice and the front deck is large and well furnished. The flowers all around the cabin make it really look and feel more like home more than a rental.

Inside, everything (lightswitches, pantry and cabinets) is clearly labeled and easy to find. It is well stocked with utensils and everything we needed to cook meals. They even had frosted mugs in the freezer when we arrived. The washing machine and dryer worked well and the shower had plenty of pressure and the water was hot quickly.

The TV's use cable free services such as Netflix. I was able to load our Vudu account on the Roku and the Blue-ray player upstairs and watch our own movies. The Internet worked well and our phones and streaming worked without an issue. The cabin is a good mix of modern and rustic with its solar lights outside, bright LED bulbs inside along with streaming services but all in a log cabin look and feel.

There is a crew working on the road  and once it is finished, the drive up to the cabin will be a breeze. If you use Waze it is easy to find the cabin and it will navigate you right to it.

Brenda was friendly and very helpful. She checked in with us before and after we arrived to be sure everything was fine. I would highly recommend staying at the Rocking M for any trips through the area.

Relaxing weekend with our bikes

We had a wonderful time staying at Rocking M Retreat. We came up for a relaxing weekend on our bikes and had the most amazing experience. The cabin is located in a perfect place to ride to many different places. Our first day we rode to Hiawassee for lunch then over to Helen for Octoberfest and back through Hayesville. Day two we rode to Robbinsville up the Tail of the Dragon and back over the Cherohala Skyway (known as the Dragon Cherohala Loop). Each ride had some of the most beautiful scenery you could imagine. After our rides we enjoyed relaxing on the porch, watching College Football, and baking. The cabin is stocked with everything you could possibly need or want. For bikers, the road to the cabin is dirt and gravel and the driveway is steep with gravel. As you come up to the cabin...first gear, slow and easy. You will make a fairly sharp right turn into the driveway, so it is best to come up on the left side to make the turn. At the top of the drive is a gravel area with plenty of room to turn the bikes. When leaving the cabin, first gear, back brake and feathering the throttle worked great for my husband and I. We had no issues. We will definitely come back for many more visits and bike rides. You will absolutely love and enjoy your stay at Rocking M Retreat. We certainly did!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Creating new family traditions

We stayed at the cabin for Christmas. The cabin was so nice and nicely decorated for the holiday. The hosts are amazing! Everything was perfect and everything needed was there. Location is great. Close to restaurants and grocery stores. Only a 15 minute drive to the Casino. I would definitely recommend this cabin!

Peaceful getaway

Wonderful, cozy, clean, comfy, quiet, with great amenities. Very close to town but still secluded enough for a peaceful getaway from the grind. Highly recommend.

Close to town

Easy location, love that we are only a few minutes to town.  After arriving, walking into the cabin felt very inviting with a note and treats and bedroom fireplace on! We are building here and love everything Murphy has to offer. You have covered everything we could need, the special touches are above and beyond, loved the cell phone charger! Cabin is beautiful and very comfortable. We can't wait for our construction to be complete!

Flowers and Landscaping

The flowers and landscaping caught the eye right away! We watched your bulbs growing outside the door.  The plate of goodies and welcome note were a nice surprise. The porch kept the rain at bay. Loved watching the wind play in the trees. Very well taken care of, clean and all the extras, just felt welcome and at home!

Relaxing kid free retreat!

My very first thought when I walked in was I loved the real cabin wood smell. Looking around I noticed the decor wasn't the traditional cabin stuff, but more of a peaceful and relaxing retreat, beautiful!  It was rainy so we enjoyed the covered deck with our coffee outdoors, we chose not to cook, but to eat out and I love that everything is so close. Thank you for allowing us to use your cabin to celebrate my 32nd birthday, kids free! We had the best sleep and relaxing time!

Warm and welcoming!

So warm and welcoming! Your note and welcome gifts were so kind!  Our favorite was the fireplace, everything was well appointed. We had everything we needed, enjoyed downtown Murphy and all its charming stores and people! Only suggestion would be to have the wood split so they burn more readily! thank you for sharing your lovely retreat with us!
