                      Owner info

                      About the owner: My name is Crystal. I live on a farm with my husband, Gerald and son, Clayton. I am slightly addicted to horses and love working with animals. I have stock dogs that help me with most everything I do on the farm. We have cattle, goats and a few chickens.

                      Why the Owner Chose Steelville:
                      We bought this piece of property with a lovely home on it from the family of a man named Sam Murphy because it joined our farm and we thought it would be a good place to try the vacation rental business. It went so well that we have since built two more cabins on the same property. We love meeting new people and sharing some of the great experiences of country living with others.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Murphy's Retreat was our first vacation rental and the screened in porch overlooking the river is still my favorite spot on the whole Murphy's Place property. I love to sit out there and drink my coffe while listening to the river gurgling along down below.
