My husband and I were here over the weekend for our 10th anniversary with our little dog. We were so pleased with the whole area, just perfect. Our cabin was spotless, and was neatly arranged. We had everything we needed. Our little dog enjoyed all the yard he had to explore, about 3 acres. The owners are very friendly, and...

We left out for a weekend drive with no destination. We found ourselves in Murphy. We enjoyed the flea market there and ate dinner. All hotels were booked and it looked like we would have to drive an hour or more to find a place to stay. Passed by the sign and called River Cove Cabins around 9:30pm. We were...

Ok so website says no refunds due to weather- understandable. Had sent in HALF of amount due. Hurricane weather including flash floods redirected us away from NC and toward Arkansas. Owner would not offer partial credit toward another visit . As a returning customer I did expect that . So they lose us as an annual returning customer. No worries-...

Perfect location if touring area. Motorcycle friendly folks. Close to Moonshiner 28, Tail of Dragon, Cherohala skyway, Cherokee etc etc. Clean no frills cabins. Very homey and rustic. Owner lady was very nice, her husband not too social. Def will go back! Great price and perfect location.

I absolutely love this place! I stayed in cabin #4. It's right next to the river. Each cabin is different, so choose depending on your needs. Very relaxing and peaceful. They have a campfire every night, if you feel like socializing. There is a small pier if you want to fish. There is wifi, but it's a little spotty. With...
