Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave the check-in process a 5-star rating.

Secluded 48 acres in Murphy (about 16 minutes to downtown). Near: John C. Campbell Folk School (about 12 minutes away); Nantahala River (about 35 minutes away). Friendly dog and 2 cats (they live at my house, but may come to the chapel for a visit). Roam the property, visit the chickens and ducks, swim in the spring fed pond. If you are a camper or want to try "camping," then you will love "glamping" ("glamorous camping") at the chapel! Read more about "glamping" and the chapel's features below.

Billy and Mary are lovely people and really made us feel welcome. They met us at check in and showed us around and were a great resource for local info. My kids are 4&6 and we had a great time exploring the property- canoeing on the small pond, swimming in the pond, relaxing on…
