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.

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!

Fabulous Paonia rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Paonia for three nights for a family wedding. The rental home was fantastic. The property is just as described (actually even nicer than we anticipated!). The inside was clean, cool, and tastefully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed, plus a few extra supplies. The backyard was well kept, and we enjoyed a fire and s'mores in the fire pit! Sheryl was available if needed (although we really didn't need anything!) and even checked in with us during our stay. The location was on a quiet street in town, close to everything. We truly felt at home during our stay, and will absolutely consider the Orchardnest each and every time we return to the valley.

This clean, nice, cozy home is ideal for a comfortable stay.

  • 4 of 5

The location is excellent for easy walking access to the town's restaurants and park, while allowing you to enjoy the local neighborhood's privacy. The house was clean and inviting. Our cell phone service by Verizon was not accessible and the wifi was not working. The back yard is immaculate and very enjoyable. Would have given it 5 stars is the wifi had worked.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry about the internet not working. You are the first guest that has had problems. I went in later with my notebook and got on fine. I am not sure why you had troubles. I'm so sorry Irene.

Most Wonderful Home Ever

  • 5 of 5

For my wife and I, this amazing house nestled in the friendly and charming town of Paonia was a special treat. We have stayed at dozens of VRBO's all over the United States. This one is our very favorite. The house was built in the early 1940's but has been upgraded by the owner and her son to state-of-the-art.

When you check in - just wander down to the laundry room and look at the water-sprinkler system engineering. This will tell you everything about this modern bungalow! And the inter decorating is top notch! All the conveniences are here - A wonderful yard and patio - quite - refreshing breezes - modern kitchen - comfortable beds - all nestled in a wonderland of fruit and wine - Grand Avenue is old school America with all of the charm of a bygone era.

We will return!

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.
