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.

Great Home Away from Home!
Great Home Away from Home!
We have stayed numerous times at this home over the past 12 years and it is just like coming home. The cabin is fantastic with everything you need for a great vacation. Private lake is full of fish and within walking distance with river also within walking distance. The town of Murphy is full of wonderful, friendly people. Always a pleasure to stay here!

Beautiful and Peaceful
Beautiful and Peaceful
We loved this cabin, my wife and I spent a wonderful vacation week. The place is beautiful and peaceful and it has everything you would need and want to make your stay perfectly enjoyable. The openness that surronds the cabin gives you a feeling of freedom and peace. We were amazed at the many different variety of colorful birds that came to the front porch to eat from the feeders and also very pretty squirrels. We brought along our small Papillon who also enjoyed the outdoor freedom of the place. The owner is very friendly and helpful, thank you Bobbi for sharing your place with us. We recomend this cabin for anyone who is looking for a preaceful and beatiful setting for the perfect vacation.

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!
