“Best cabin ever!”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I reserved this cabin for my team's workshop and it was fantastic!
Cozy sofas and bed are ready and wonderful gas grill is waiting for you.
You guys can enjoy pingpong and nice view of mountain. Even Nintendo is in here!
My teammates satisfied with all the things in here and it will be my milestone as well.
Don't hesitate to click the reservation button. You'll never regret it.

“All the comforts of home...beautifully appointed and spacious mountain home.”

The property was nice. gated and secure, part way up the mountain.
It was a ways out of town (murphy) but close to some of the activities we enjoyed, as we had 2 young children. Nearby activities included: Wagonmaster Ranch for gem mining and miniature golf. They have a cool paintgun set up for older kids. Our 3 and 5 year olds even "drove" some small motorized cars. (that was exciting!). We enjoyed the Cherokee recreation and picnic area where we picnicked, hiked and fished. Very nice & close by. We attended the Friendship Baptist church. The kids absolutely loved it. Great playground, loving folks. We went into town and "bumper" bowled one day (Fannins).
Our least favorite thing: Well, my husband got frustrated that we had to drive to walmart so frequently, as it was 14 miles away. We cooked in the entire week. Our favorite thing: I loved the HOUSE. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. Most importantly for us: it was "pet restricted" so we didn't have to worry about everyone's allergies flaring up. Older kids might enjoy the "rec room" in the basement...there is a ping pong table, tv and comfy couches.

This cabin is the only one that is not pet friendly. It is great for folks with allergies. Great location with a side screened porch to view the wild life.
Thanks for taking the time to write this awesome review!

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If your looking for a place away from it all this is the place for you! Check out the information provided by Greg and Paula. We went horse back riding, rafting, and had a great time. The home had everything needed and was very clean.

“Beautiful, comfortable everything you would ever need, Perfect!”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

To be truthful, it was beyond my expectations, the Matadlee was beautiful, location was excellent, the drive to it up the mountain was awesome at night. All inside was immaculate and the furnishings was beautiful. It had everything you need to stay and be comfortable. My two sons loved the downstairs, with their own room, bathroom and ping pong table. We drank coffee on the porch in the mornings, and watched all the animals in the yard and listened to all the birds. Great location to everything, downtown Murphy has a great Irish pub, you must stop by the Biscuit House to get breakfast, Zip Lining, water rafting close and great places for antiques. Just loved it, highly recommend to all. Great Mountain experience.....
