About Don Murray

I grew up in the Southeast United States. I finished High School and College in Pensacola, Florida. I spent four years in the Marines as a crewmember in the F4, Phantom, aircraft.

I am retired from Chevron Phillips Chemical Company. My last position was a Computer Systems Analyst, mainly working on WEB applications.

After retiring, my wife and I moved to Upstate South Carolina. Since that time, I have spent most of my time building our rental cabin.

Don Murray purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Don Murray chose South Carolina

After retiring, my wife and I were looking for a place to build in the local area. After being shown this lot, I was hooked. I called my wife and told her that I must have died and gone to heaven.

What makes this cabin unique

The solitude and privacy is wonderful... and it is truly a wilderness setting. You can hear the creek at the bottom of the hill making little tinkling noises.

Peaceful and clean! Lovely oasis.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our short stay at Don's cabin! It was so wonderfully quiet out in the woods, and close to Table Rock State Park and Greenville--everything we were looking for. The lack of light pollution made for amazing star gazing from the back porch, and we were very impressed by how clean the house was. Don went the extra mile and stocked the fridge: it's clear he's a very attentive host without being too present. Couldn't have been a more perfect stay!

Such a comfortable, super clean, great place to stay!! My kids loved the feel of being in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first vrbo experience and it was literally last minute, day before booking. We couldn't have gotten any luckier. Don was so incredibly helpful and nice. He has the house stacked with all of the kids favorite snacks and everything you would want for breakfast (which we thoroughly enjoyed). The house was the perfect size for our family of four.

It was so clean and so comfortable.

I am so grateful to Don for making our first mountain trip a great memory for all of us. My 5 year old said his favorite part was the cabin over the waterfalls, Apple picking and hiking!!

Will surely visit again!!

Privacy and comfort for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

First, the area is really beautiful. We came at the very beginning of fall, before the leaves we changing. I bet it's spectacular in full fall when all the trees are full of colors. Very close to here (10 min drive) is Wildcat Falls with a nice, fairly easy hike. Beautiful!

The cabin itself is very comfortable and homey, impeccably clean, with lots of little touches here and there. Unlike a hotel room that feels anonymous, the cute little cabin feels like you're staying with friends or family. Well equipped and almost better than home.

Mr. Murray was a gracious and accommodating host. Nearly everything we needed was right here and he got us eggs, milk, juice, and sausage for us to make our breakfast. There was even a children's book for bedtime reading, which our 5yo daughter really enjoyed.

It is obvious that the Murrays have put a great deal of thought into their guests' comfort and needs and it shows. We highly recommend and will be back again!
