We just showed up and were lucky enough to get a beautiful cabin for three days. It sat right on the river and proved to be the final touch to a great vacation. It was quiet and just plain nice! I actually caught a nice trout, a Bass, and a hard fighting catfish from right outside our cabin. The cabin...

We had a very relaxing time at the River Cove Cabins. It was the type of place we always look for. We're not into fancy, just nice clean, out of the main stream places. Although it rained a lot, it was still one of our best vacations. Gary and Wanda very nice people. The dog and cat were great too....

My husband and I just returned from a three night stay at River Cove Cabins. And we loved this place. Our weekend started out as a two day weekend.

We just returned from a WAY TOO SHORT weekend getaway at River Cove Cabins. We stayed in cabin #6 and loved it. The 2 bedroom cabin was perfect for the 4 of us, although we spent most of our time on the front porch just listening to the river rush by. Cabin 6 sits back a little bit from the...

Want to say the owners are fabulous.... My husband and I decided on a road trip and landed in Murphy NC. I called late in the evening, and they warmly greeted me. Only thing I suggest is the mattress I'm cabin 1 desperately needs to be changed as it sags in the middle. Other than that we loved it and...

It is important to us that everyone is comfortable during their stay at the cabins, so we have just replaced the mattress in Cabin #1 with a brand new Serta Mattress for the comfort of our guests.

My husband and I stayed at River Cove Cabins shortly after I had major surgery in 2009.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the River Cove Cabins and hope to stay there again in the future. The cabin was great and Garry and Wanda even greater.
