About Sheryl Murphy

We raised our kids in this house. Many fond memories and fun times were had. After moving out of town we rented it out for several years. Thinking we could always retire back in our small nest. A few years ago we started staying in vacation rentals and found great advantages. So we thought we could share this home in that same way!

We are proud to support our local Solar Energy International and have Solar Panels supplying the electric energy!

Sheryl Murphy purchased this house in 1994

Why Sheryl Murphy chose Southwest

After starting off in Denver and then Dallas, we discovered we wanted to move to a small town to raise our kids. Paonia has been good for us as we homeschooled and enjoyed the abundance of organic fruits each year. We love our local food markets, hardware stores, numerous churches, movie theater, beautiful mountain weather and scenery...just to name a few.

Fantastic home...I will definitely book this property again!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed in Paonia during Cherry Days. The home is conveniently located within walking distance to town and the park. We spent a lot of our time in the gorgeous backyard. The entire yard is fenced and was a perfect place for my grandchildren to play. The internet connection worked without fail, the house was emaculate and adorably decorated. I told Sheryl the ages of my grandchildren and when we arrived, she had put some toys in the house for them, a high chair, and a pack n play. I would recommend this property if you are interested in having the perfect Paonia vacation!

The house was in pristine condition when we arrived. It is laid out beautifully for two couples, allowing privacy and spaciousness for each. The backyard is lovely and we spent quite a bit of time outside, just reading and relaxing on the patio. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need -- including some condiments that were thoughtfully left in the fridge. The location is wonderful - we walked to get coffee, eat dinner and enjoy the park. Thanks, Sheryl for making our stay so comfortable!

Car: necessary

Our home is just down the tree lined street from our beautiful town park. This is where many of our town events happen: Cherry Days, BMW rally, Pick'in in the Park (Thursday evenings in August) and Harvest Fest.

We are in town, making it a pleasant walk to the nearby restaurants, pubs, classic hometown movie theater, Blue Sage Center for the Arts, our local ice cream shop and grocery store.
