Newly renovated with modern touches and a rustic aesthetic, Misty Mountain is a cozy mountain home in the southern Smoky Mountains of Murphy, North Carolina. The jaw-dropping views from each room of the open-concept floor plan will take your breath away. Our cabin offers four bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, two large living rooms, a well-equipped kitchen, two southern-facing decks with mountain views, and a spa. Misty Mountain sleeps up to 12 guests. We do not host pets at this cabin.
Misty Mountain is located in the Five Forks mountain community of Murphy, North Carolina, a small town nestled in the heart of the southern Smoky Mountains. This quaint mountain town was established in the 1830s and is the westernmost county seat in the state of North Carolina. Murphy is perfectly situated at the confluence of the Hiwassee and Valley rivers, and is an excellent home base for exploring all that the area has to offer. Murphy is roughly a 30-minute drive from the numerous dining, shopping, and outdoor recreation opportunities in Blue Ridge, Georgia. It’s easy to spend a day exploring Blue Ridge’s boutiques, wineries, and shops before heading back to the peace and quiet of our private mountain. Murphy and the Five Forks community showcase small town mountain life at its very best.
The owners of Misty Mountain live in Atlanta, Georgia, where they work full-time and raise their three daughters. Prior to purchasing the home, they had always dreamed of buying a property with panoramic mountain views, both to occasionally escape from their hectic daily lives and to also host like-minded travelers looking for a mountain getaway.
In the summer of 2021, a friend told the owners about Murphy, North Carolina, an authentic mountain town with access to outdoor adventure, live music and festivals, good local food, and the beauty of the Smoky Mountains — without the touristy feel of some larger north Georgia and North Carolina locales. They started exploring and discovered the private Five Forks mountain community, where the mountain views, friendly neighbors, and abundant wildlife made for a perfect spot. They fell in love with an architect-designed cabin with a modern, open feel and awe-inspiring views.

In September of 2022, we (Barrett and Roger) had the pleasure of personally renting Misty Mountain for vacation. We came to the area to celebrate a good friend’s wedding in Brasstown, North Carolina, located just down the road from Murphy, which is one town over. For Roger, this trip was a special homecoming, as he spent his summers as a young man working in this area. We absolutely fell in love with the town of Murphy, the locals, and this stunning mountain cabin! We made a leap of faith and reached out to the owners to inquire about caring for their lovely home. Luckily for everyone, they said, “Yes!”.
This four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home offers an open-concept living and dining space, a fully-equipped kitchen, an additional downstairs living room for the kiddos, a private spa, a custom-built fire pit, and tons of privacy. The mountain views, attention to detail, and incredible woodwork really make this mountain cabin stand out from the rest
Misty Mountain can accommodate up to 12 guests comfortably, utilizing three king beds, a set of twin bunk beds, a twin daybed with trundle. We do not offer sleeper sofas.
