About Harold or Sheila Honeycutt

Harold and I have been married 39 years we 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 Shoal Creek

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.

                                                      A Fantastic Family New Year Celebration

                                                      This property was the perfect size for our family. All the adults had their own space and the children enjoyed the open basement room. It was clean, well stocked and generous with supplies. The beds were comfortable. There was enough seating for everyone. We would love to spend some more time in this lovely home, maybe when temps are a little more conducive to more outdoor activities.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Please do come back! Spring, summer and fall are beautiful in the smokie mountains!

                                                      Great cabin.

                                                      Nice place to relax, I extremely recommended.

                                                      Pam D.St. Petersburg, FL

                                                      We really enjoyed the spaciousness of the cabin and it had everything we needed and more. There were two negatives about the home. One the internet was not consistent and we had to keep resetting the modem. I know for most people looking to get away in the mountains this is not an issue, but as I am in seminary and needed to respond to online classes, it created unneeded stress. The second issue was that we found multiple scorpions in the basement. I certainly understand that we were staying in the woods and that there are insects. Other than these two issues the cabin served its purpose well and we had a great time with family and friends over the Thanksgiving week.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      I’m sorry your internet was not working as it should have. We usually have great internet when we stay here. I will certainly call the DSL company to find out why it wasn’t consistent during your stay. I hope the scorpions you encountered downstairs were dead. I have only seen dead scorpions, which means the pest control is working. Thank you for letting me know.

                                                      Amazing Stay!!

                                                      Glenn A.

                                                      My wife and I rented this cabin to take a break from day to day life and go somewhere quiet. We picked this cabin because of the area and the pictures were nice. When we arrived the pictures did not do this cabin justice. It was amazing. Probably way too big for my wife and I, but awesome! Everything was exactly as described. The cabin is secluded, and way up in the mountain. There is access to gated areas to view the surroundings, and it was tranquil. There are many activities within a short distance. Great place for families. Thanks Harold and Sheila for sharing your home!!

                                                      Harold and I are so glad you two loved your stay in our vacation home! We love the outdoor activities as well. And the views from the gated community of Hideaway Hills are quite spectacular and bring such a calm majestic feeling to the experience!

                                                      We hope you come back and bring the kids!

                                                      Sheila & Harold

                                                      Everything we needed was there. Allowed quiet area for baby to take naps. Beds were comfortable.

                                                      Beverly C.

                                                      Beds were comfortable. Rooms clean and kitchen was well outfitted with all pots and pans. I especially liked sitting on the porch and resting. The full wrap-around porch was a plus with the grandkids. Good tip on the maps as our GPS took us up the opposite side of the mountain which made for an adventurous ride. Thanks to the Honeycutts for sharing their mountain home with folks.

                                                      Beautiful Private Property with Anything you Could Need

                                                      Sharon F.Dickson, Tennessee

                                                      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.

                                                      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!
