About Joe Keenan

I am retired military and will soon retire from the State of Florida in the Law Enforcement. My dream was to have a home in the mountains to enjoy time with family and friends, ride my motorcycle, hike, kayak and fish.

Joe Keenan purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Joe Keenan chose Murphy

Our cabin sits at an 1800 ft. elevation in the western most county of NC which borders on GA and TN. It is surrounded by the Appalachian & Blue Ridge Mountains and the Nantahala & Chattahoochee National Forests. The Hiwassee, Valley and Nottely Rivers run thru this area along with multiple lakes. No wonder it is an outdoor lovers paradise with boating, kayaking, zip lining, white water rafting, hiking, mountain biking, trout fishing, scenic drives and motorcycling. The Cyclists will enjoy amazing rides including the famous Deal's Gap mountain pass. Within two hours of Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville and Ashville for the closest airports and shopping in the larger cities. 5 min. to Harrah's Casino, 10 min. to grocery store, Walmart and the quaint old downtown Murphy. Built 1839, it has tree lined streets with historic buildings, restaurants, and shops that are all very walkable. So many small towns in this area to explore their flea markets, antique shops, crafts, great people and great food. Multiple wineries and breweries nearby as well. John C Campbell Folk School is a nationally known adult education school in Brasstown which is 15 miles away. They offer classes in music, photography, arts/crafts, gardening, writing, dance, story telling, along with concert series and a craft shop.

What makes this cabin unique

We are originally from Ohio and moved to Florida back in 1988. We bought this cabin to once again experience a little bit of the north again. Slower pace of life/see the seasons change/lower humidity without the extreme cold winters. We are what they call here in NC as " halfbacks". The locals have been nothing but welcoming here. So friendly and helpful. The cabin is our " happy place". It feels so warm and cozy. It's great to just sit back on the porch and see the mountains and the wildlife right in front of you. Birds galore in the feeder. Or snuggle up in front of the fireplace and relax. So quiet and secluded, but so close to town. Paved roads allow for great walks too.

So peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay! The cabin was very large, definitely more like a large home than a small cabin, and exceeded our expectations! It has high ceilings and windows to let in light and the outdoor porch was fantastic! They have the best little rockers and we enjoyed just sitting out on the porch talking all night! Would definitely come back again!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property, the cabin was nice and very clean. Great location about 5 minutes from the casino and 10 minutes from Murphy. Will definitely stay here again if we go back to Murphy. The owner was very helpful as well and kept in touch the week before our stay to make sure we had no problems finding it and getting in.
