Murphy cabin description

This riverfront, cedar log home with nearby lake access offers a view tempting you to fall into your surroundings and to relax. The location of the home is great if you just want to get away from it all or if you are an adventurer seeking white-water rafting, hiking, canoeing, and off-road ATV trails.

The two-story, cedar log home offers three bedrooms (two queen-size beds, two twin beds, and a queen-size sleeper sofa), two full baths, and a great room with a rock fireplace, kitchen, and dining room.

This three bedroom, two bath home offers a large wrap-around deck for your enjoyment.

The log home is situated on approximately 7.5 acres, but is surrounded by hundreds of acres just waiting to be explored by foot, mountain bike, or ATV. Within walking distance you will find our private entrance, with picnic table, to a lake stocked with all kinds of fish including bass, trout, and perch. This tranquil lake has ducks and geese, and is great for canoeing.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: We have lived 'in the city' all of our lives (Ed lived in New York State, then Tampa, Florida, prior to moving to Miami, Florida and I was born and live in Miami, Florida). Our dream was to find a place in a small, but wonderful, area. We looked in several areas for many years, including Murphy, but didn't find the 'magic place'. We decided to return to Murphy 5 years after our first brief visit. When we drove back in, we knew we were right in coming back. It was a moment that changed our lives. We didn't know it then, but it has. Our son has moved to the area because of the peace and beauty he found here and 3 of our friends are now our neighbors. We have all found something special here. We can't really describe it, but we can certainly feel it!

              Why the Owner Chose Murphy:
              We bought this home because we were looking for 'the perfect place'. We found it! We wanted peace, tranquility and beauty, but it had to feel 'good'. The moment we walked in, we knew we had found everything we had been looking for. Our home is more than a place to stay. We respect the fact that it is, also, a home for wildlife and have tried to maintain a safe haven for the beautiful things nature has provided in this area. Our dock over the river offers a peaceful escape from everything or a chance to catch trout! The lake is quiet and is the morning 'home' to ducks and geese. After a day of hiking, biking, white water rafting, ZIP lining or enjoying watersports on the nearby lake, it truly is a 'home' to return to and unwind.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Our home is 'easy'. It is 1 1/2 to 2 hours from several 'big cities', but is in a wonderful 'small town'. There are no 'strangers' in Murphy. We are on 7 1/2 acres in a valley on the Nottely River. Being in our home, sitting on the deck or on our dock on the river makes everything 'right'. Looking around and seeing the natural beauty allows you to put everything in life in perspective. We truly are fortunate to have found this magical place. Everyone who has chosen our home in which to spend their special time agrees. You don't stay in our home, your experience it!
