About Harry and Kathy Swart

Two brothers and their wives are the proud owners of this home. One resides in the beautiful state of Colorado, which inspired the name of the house and the other resides in Central Florida.We have been visitors and land owners in the area since 1995 and have finally built our vacation dream home on this beautiful mountain top site.

Harry and Kathy Swart purchased this house in 2012

Why Harry and Kathy Swart chose Murphy

Over the years we have found this area to be peaceful and beautiful yet full of opportunities for outdoor activities. The people of this wonderful valley that we have come to know are warm and friendly and we have developed many lasting friendships. Every time we arrive in the valley we feel like this is home; and now we can say that it truly is our home away from home.

What makes this house unique

This home has one of the most beautiful views in the area. Locals who have visited our home are awed by the unobstructed beauty of the view. We feel blessed to be able to share our home with you and have taken great care to provide you with a wonderful experience. And now you are only a short 10 minute drive to the beautiful new Harrah's casino.

Our Favorite Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at Aspen East. It has been by far our favorite cabin. We have a group of 7-9 ladies that take a trip a couple times a year. This cabin accommodates all of us very well. The view is gorgeous, the kitchen is well stocked, the staff is wonderful and prompt to work with, the house is always clean with wonder extras around every corner (shampoos, conditioners, soaps, hair dryers, straighteners, batteries, light bulbs, extra trash bags, popcorn for the popcorn machine, etc.). There are plenty of dishes and glasses to accommodate a larger group like ours. A notebook is provided with details of the cabin (how to use all the TVs, receiver, Dish) as well as restaurants and things to do in the area. Wonderful cabin! We will be back!!

I stayed there with my eighty year old mother and teenage children. We are going to a wedding in Murphy. Staying at aspen east was fun and peaceful. Especially loved the popcorn machine and air hockey!

Gorgeous view and fantastic house-we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I never got tired of looking at that view and we loved the house. It's well-stocked with just about everything that you could think of from paper products to soap/shampoo/hair dryer, plus all sorts of goodies in the pantry (coffee, sugar, flour, cooking oils, etc). We also didn't have to bring a ton of clothes with us because of the really nice washer/dryer in the house (laundry detergent & dryer sheets included). And the house itself has a really nice floorplan and was beautifully furnished and appointed, plus there was high-speed broadband and satellite tv. I had trouble with a remote and just one call and it was fixed very quickly (very friendly people too). We honestly didn't want to leave and we will return! Plus they are pet-friendly!

Mountain views and lovely accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Aspen East was simply perfect! The house is immaculate, fully equipped and very comfortable. We hope to stay there again and we recommend it to others. Our group likes to cook and made full use of the gourmet kitchen as well as the grill on the porch. Our stay could not have been better!
