How to Make the Most of a Weekend Getaway at Our Cabins in Murphy North Carolina

When it comes to vacation days, more is always better. Sometimes, however, it just isn’t feasible to take a whole week off from work. If you’re running low on time off, a weekend getaway is the perfect solution. With a little planning, you can pack a ton of fun and relaxation into a relatively short period of time. Mountain Country Cabin Rentals has put together some great tips for making the most of a weekend escape at our cabins in Murphy North Carolina.

Come for a Three Day Weekend

The difference between a three day vacation and a two day vacation can be huge, especially if you have a long drive to get here. Try to plan your getaway around a long weekend in order to maximize your time in Murphy without having to take off a day from work. Here are some three day weekends that you may be able to take advantage of:

  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – Third Monday of January
  • Presidents Day – Third Monday of February
  • Memorial Day – Last Monday of May
  • Independence Day – July 4
  • Labor Day – First Monday in September
  • Columbus Day – Second Monday in October
  • Veterans Day – November 11

When you’re on vacation, there can be a temptation to try to fit in as many activities as possible. For a weekend escape, however, you don’t want to overdo it. Instead of constantly rushing around from one thing to the next, pick a few activities to enjoy and save the rest for another time. Also, be sure to build in plenty of downtime to your schedule. Just relaxing on the deck at one of our cabins in Murphy North Carolina could be the highlight of your trip!

Take Your Furry Friend with You

Finding weekend accommodations for your dog at a kennel or a friend’s house can be a real hassle. Instead, skip the aggravation and bring your four-legged family member with you on vacation! When you stay at our pet-friendly cabins, your pooch can join in on all of the fun. Murphy is ideal for dog lovers, offering lots of green spaces for walking or playing fetch. The toughest part of taking your dog on your weekend getaway is that he may not want to leave!

Of course, you’ll want to eat at some of the best restaurants in Murphy NC while you’re in town. However, stopping to dine somewhere every time you want to eat can slow you down when you only have limited time in the area. When you’re out and about away from your cabin, we suggest bringing some snacks or sandwiches with you in case you get hungry. Granola bars, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or trail mix are all great when you’re on the road. All of our cabins come with fully furnished kitchens, so it will be easy to prepare some tasty food to take with you during the day.
