3. Schedule Some Downtime on the Deck
While there is always something fun to do in the Murphy area, don’t forget to schedule some downtime as well. When you stay at our mountain cabin rentals in North Carolina, you will want to spend plenty of time relaxing on the deck. Offering breathtaking views of the forest, the mountains, or the water, a rocking chair on the deck is truly the best seat in the house! Of course, many of our cabins also come with a hot tub on the deck, so you can soak the day away while admiring the incredible scenery all around you.
4. Go Wine Tasting
If you’re a fan of wine, a trip to Cherokee Cellars Winery is an absolute must. For just $5, you can sample five different award winning wines. It’s hard to beat that price! All of the wines are made from grapes grown at local vineyards in the North Carolina and Georgia area, and all of the winemaking, blending, and bottling is done on site at Cherokee Cellars. Located right in downtown Murphy, this winery is also a great place to pick up gifts for your friends and family back home.
Many of our cabins come with fire pits, so you can enjoy some outdoor fun late into the evening. Whether you roast marshmallows, sing campfire songs, or just talk to one another, you will love being together next to the warmth of the fire. Don’t forget to pick up s’mores supplies at the grocery!
