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 Paonia

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.

Cozy Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our stay. We were in Paonia for a somewhat sad family gathering and the cozy touches here were perfect for us. I HIGHLY recommend this rental for any visit to the North Fork Valley.

Our family was in Paonia for my son's wedding and this cute house made the special event even better. Plenty of room for the 5 of us and very comfortable. Sheryl has it decorated so cute! We enjoyed sitting in the large backyard. Thank you for making our stay so awesome for the special occasion! If you are looking for a place to stay in Paonia, this is it!

We would give 6 stars if we could!

  • 5 of 5

Spotless, comfortable space! Well-kept backyard with table under a huge willow tree, which provided nice shade. We spent lots of time eating out there. Two days after we arrived, a water main broke in the street, flooding the furnished basement, which provided 35% of the living space. Sheryl, the owner, insisted on refunding our money. She could have asked us to leave, but we had nowhere to go aside from a motel. She left the decision up to us, which was really decent! We stayed for another week in cramped quarters with workers fixing the basement, but we had an enjoyable time even so. Next year we'll definitely rent from her again!

Owner's Response: Thank you! I appreciated your patience. Thankfully Servpro did a fabulous job on cleaning and drying it out and now we are getting 'put back together'. We hope to have you visit again!

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.
