The camera does not look into any interior spaces* Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: 2 Twin Beds | Living Room: Pullout Bed You'll have fantastic river and forest views wherever you go in this bright and airy home! Large windows provide great views and fill the home with tons of natural light on sunny days. Early risers in your group can step out onto the deck to enjoy the river while sipping their morning coffee. Watch the otters and other local wildlife play in the water before you head out for the day's adventures. Though you'll feel secluded in the woods during your stay, you'll have all of the comforts of home at 'Otter Cottage.' Use the wireless internet to surf the net and watch your favorite shows on the flat-screen cable TV. There are tons of restaurants just down the road, but you don't need to leave the comfort of your home-away-from-home when it's time to dine. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner. End the evening with a nightcap out on the deck, or throw a log in the fireplace to create a nice and cozy atmosphere inside. When it's time to call it a night, fall asleep to the sound of the river as she cascades over the rocks in front of the house. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed, the second bedroom has a set of twin beds, and two additional travelers can sleep on the convertible couch in the living room by the fireplace. -- THE LOCATION -- With the Nottely River right in your backyard, there's no need to travel far for days of fun and adventure. The rapidly-running river is ideal for tubing, rafting, and exploring. Anglers can bring their rods and try to reel in some fish during your stay! The river is also great for those who'd like to try their hand fly fishing. Those who'd prefer to stay on dry land can whittle a new hiking stick and explore Nantahala National Forest! One of the forest's hiking trails starts in the side yard along a stream that feeds the river. If you're itching to get into town, take a 15-minute drive to downtown Murphy for shopping and tasty local restaurants! Head a bit further to Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino & Hotel, only 25 minutes away, and press your luck at the slots or table games. -- THE EVOLVE DIFFERENCE -- Evolve Vacation Rental wants your vacation experience to be everything you hoped for and exactly what you needed.

The view of the river was amazing. We loved sitting out in the evenings and watching the water rise and the otter play
