Hospitality, Charm, along with a healthy dose of Adventure, are inviting you to #WHEREWNCBEGINS.

What’s your pleasure? Fishing on serene lakes, white water rafting on rivers from the beginner to the experienced; hiking trails for the gentle strollers to the avid adventurers; enjoying scenic train rides through the beautiful Smoky Mountains?

How about the bright lights and hypnotic sounds of a casino? After all, a little change may change your life. And whatever way you decide to spend your day - spend your nights (or just your down time) in one of our first class accommodations in Murphy,  or a luxury cabin by the lake, in the woods, or on the mountains.

Whether you want to spend quiet time in the mountains, come into town and grab a local-made brew and listen to good mountain music, or bring your buddies to go kayaking down the river - head to the far west corner of NC - where NC begins.

All play and no work ...
we don't see the problem either.

Asian, Mexican, Italian...
Big city variety, without the wait ... and the smog.

A hotel by the casino or a cabin by the lake. We'll do more than keep the light on for you.

"Do you have the number to the tag office?"

... and a gazillion other questions that come into the office every day.

Special thanks to our DIAMOND Sponsors for our 2020 Events
