About Michele Northrup

I live in Tampa, Florida where I have raised my three boys. They are grown now and I run my gourmet hot sauce company, Intensity Academy Sauces.

Michele Northrup purchased this Cabin in 2003

Why Michele Northrup chose Tarheel

We visited over 30 properties before walking into Star Creek Cabin. It was still under construction with cement floors and they we laying the stone for the fire place. it took only a moment to know this was the perfect spot for our family get away. The small charming town of Murphy has it all, local restaurants, coffee shops, movie theatre, Casino, golfing, hiking, parks and more!

What makes this Cabin unique

The drive to the cabin is easy without scary angles and solid ground parking. An average car can drive it year round without worry. Be sure to check out Downtown Bakery, Monte Alban & Rib Country!

                                                              The cabin was neat and clean and very cozy.

                                                              My family and I were very pleased with the cabin. The whole family enjoyed our time there very much. Michelle was a very gracious host and helped us with whatever we needed.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Gerald and his family were the perfect guests! They followed all the house rules and we pure joys to interact with. We look forward to having them at our cabin again soon!

                                                              Heaven away from home

                                                              Pulling into the driveway with the sunlit cabin with trees all around with a touch of clouds from the mountains took my breath away. The back porch so inviting listening to the birds and trickling creek! The inside is decorated beautifully and very welcoming. Each bedroom looks amazing and plenty of space in each room.The kitchen has everything you will need to enjoy your stay and make yourself feel at home!Love the bathrooms especially the master bathroom where you can soak under twinkling lights and feel like your in a spa!

                                                              The drive in and around town has so much charm and gorgeous areas to walk around and visit. I loved that it is close to 3 states, whitewater rafting and zip lining just down the road and state parks to visit and hike through. Old cemeteries to admire and historic buildings.

                                                              Great shopping in town and the best bakery and deli on the main strip named "Downtown Bakery". Some great personal restaurants if you don't feel like cooking, for Mexican food "Monte Alban"...amazing and great size portions." Rib Country" had some amazing pork and sides!

                                                              Overall this was one of my favorite trips away and can't wait to visit again.
