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.

We would give 6 stars if we could!

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!

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!

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.
