About Cindy Murphy

I am an interior designer and my husband is in real estate and construction. We love to work in our garden and grow our own food.

I love to sled in my yard and go tubing down the Little River. We do not like organized travel ...whether in another country or our own we enjoy getting off of the beaten path and exploring. We stay away from 'touristy' spots.

Cindy Murphy purchased this house in 2005

Why Cindy Murphy chose Blue Ridge Highlands

It is easy to get to and close to other attractions...wineries, cultural art centers, biking and hiking spots, wilderness adventures. There are hundreds of acres of undeveloped land surrounding the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time spending labor day weekend in your home. The apple tree and creek in your back yard were hits with our 2 1/2 yr old.Perfect spot for our family to gather and relax. Thanks so much.

Beautiful fall retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Five college friends for 50+ years had a wonderful 5 days here! The house is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities you could want! We had a great time exploring Chateau Morrisette, the Blue Ridge Parkway, downtown Floyd (Friday night Jamboree is a must!) the Art Center, Mabry's Mill, and other places! It was so nice to then come "home" to the guesthouse and relax on the deck or in the warm, cozy living room with a glass of wine! The views are beautiful and we watched the leaves turn more colorful each day! We had such a great time, it was hard to leave Murphy's Guesthouse! The owner is very communicative and helpful with lots of info about the area!

Luxe Accomidations in Beautiful Rural Area !!!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not give justice to this home & it's surroundings! The views were incredible inside & out! The decor has designer written all over it. Beautiful! This location is great to take in all that Floyd, Blacksburg, Virginia Tech, Christiansburg, Radford & The Parkway, have to offer. Communication with the owner was easy and she was extremely informative about the house & surrounding areas. We will certainly return!

A wonderful fall week.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect week in this beautiful house. The views from the house were beautiful. The house was welcoming and comfortable. The kitchen was a joy to prepare meals in. The hiking in the area was fun and the foliage was beautiful. We have only praise for Murphy's Guesthouse.

We've visited the Murphey...

  • 5 of 5

We've visited the Murphey's Guesthouse several times and each visit has been amazing and truly relaxing. The decor is charming, warm, homey, and the view is so serene you will want to return over and over. Just a quick drive and you're on the Blue Ridge Parkway or visiting the cute shops of Floyd or drinking a nice glass of wine at Chateau Morrisette. You can’t go’s home away from home!
