About Harold or Sheila Honeycutt

Harold and I have been married 38 years and raised 4 kids. We love to spend time with family & Friends every chance we get. We live in Florida full time but escape to the mountains every chance we get!

Harold or Sheila Honeycutt purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Harold or Sheila Honeycutt chose Smoky Mountains

We have owned several properties in Murphy NC over the past 15 years. We decided to purchase this home because we loved the location and the secluded feeling. Just up the hill in Hideaway Hills are amazing views! Every piece of wood in this house came from this mountain ridge! The people that live year round on this ridge are incredibly friendly and very helpful in any way they are able to help.

What makes this cabin unique

The road to this home is owned by the forestry department and is very easy to drive on. No sharp corners or steep driveways to worry about here. This property is flat! The kids can play in the front yard, we enjoyed swimming in the Lake within walking distance from this house.

Beautiful Private Property with Anything you Could Need

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in VRBO vacation sites for years and years and only once have I stayed in a place so stocked and friendly. The beds were comfortable, the sheets were nice and crisp, everything was clean. There were spices, tea, plastic wrap and trash bags. I didn't have to run to the store to get coffee filters or toilet paper. How nice. There were 7 of us here - My husband and I, two of our daughters and son in law and our two grandsons age 2 and 3. The two and three year old were so happy to just run their toy cars around the wrap around deck outside. We were treated to a rainstorm and watched the rain fall down while having a glass of wine one evening. It was very peaceful. We spent one day and drove to Asheville which what about 90 miles out. Also Townsend (Peaceful side of the Smokies close to Cades cove and Gatlinburg is about 45 miles away but we didn't go there this time). My kids all went white water rafting on the Ocoee, which was about 30 mins away. If you have a boat, there are lakes all around Murphy to put one in. We didn't bring a boat, but would love to come back here. It's sort of a hidden gem. As for the house itself.....if you don't love it, something is wrong. Clean, neat, well-stocked, spacious. Plenty of room for all without getting in anyone's way. We could have been here a couple of weeks and not tired of it.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay in our rental home! We love the area as well and enjoy coming back to prepare a good meal and relax as you did on the deck at night. I love listening to the sound of the trees and leaves swaying and birds singing. It seems so easy to hear nature at this home. We are glad you enjoyed your stay as much as we do. Thank you for booking with us and we hope you come back again!

We had a great time!!

  • 5 of 5

My family greatly enjoyed our stay in the cabin. It was very clean and well stocked with all the essentials. I carried way more stuff than I needed to. The cabin is located on a great access road and the views going to the cabin where wonderful. I also enjoyed working with the Honeycutt's by phone an e-mail. Ms. Honeycutt was very helpful and such a sweet person. God Bless Her!

The only disappointment we experienced was the the lake close to the cabin. It is a beautiful lake, but you don't get to see very much from the path you take to get there. The path is also not marked and we went on someone's property that very graciously corrected us. The path needs a marker of some kind.

However, we did enjoy a pontoon rental that took us on the Hiwassee River and we got to fully enjoy the water and scenery.

Overall, we had an amazing time and look forward to returning!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our vacation home in Murphy NC! I have a rock to paint to mark the path to the lake, I agree in the summer months when all the trees have their foliage it can be tricky to choose the right path :-)

AMAZING HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cabin. Everything was perfect, all the rooms nice and clean. The kitchen had all we need to make our meals...we were 4 families and we had enough space for all of us. Our walking adventure to the lake was really great , we loved it! Thank you Mrs Sheila for your beautiful house!

Very Quite and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the Honeycutt's for allowing us to stay in their beautiful cabin. The cabin is very clean., beds are comfortable and my grandchildren enjoyed the twin beds. our dogs enjoyed the porch and the daily walks we even met a couple of neighbors that were very friendly. We played board games nightly and the kids even caught lightning bugs a few times, the kitchen is well equipped but a small counter top microwave would be very helpful save a lot of wear on your stove & oven as well as electricity..Over all we loved your place and will definitely refer family or friends in the future. Again Thank you for sharing your mountain home.

Very clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to relax after a day's work. My rental was a little different than any other. Our rental was for lodging for work. We were pleasantly surprised by how extremely nice the property was. It housed 3 grown men with the comforts of home. I would like to thank the Honeycutts for sharing this beautiful home with us.

Great Vacation Week

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and clean cabin. My boys ages 2 & 4 loved running around on the deck. The kitchen has everything that you would need. We also took my grandparents, who loved the cabin and had no problems getting around. We also went to the marina down the road and it was great.
