Awesome cabin! Everything we needed was there. All wood floors and walls made for cozy environment.

  • 5 of 5

My family visited Murphy NC the past 5 days to visit with my daughter serving as a camp counselor at Snowbird in Andrews. This was the perfect size cabin for the 4 of us. Closely located to many different areas, it made travel during our stay easy. The owner was extremely helpful and hospitable The price was the most reasonable around In fact, no other cabin even came close to the price! We will be back for sure!

Great cabin for those who enjoy peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying at this cabin for several years now as I have family in the immediate area. The cabin is always clean when we arrive. Its in a beautiful neighborhood that has limited automobile traffic, so if you like to walk for exercise, this is a terrific spot. You have not only gorgeous flat ground, but for those of us who need to work our muscles more, there are challenging elevations that make you feel the burn! Very easy to communicate with the owner and I feel so lucky every time I get a chance to go to Murphy!! I can't imagine staying anywhere else based on our needs and any of my friends and family who have joined me over time always walk away feeling refreshed. The cabin is tucked away in a small, well kept community. I would recommend this cabin to anyone who enjoys a quiet atmosphere. Murphy and the surrounding areas offer so much to do and see, its nice to have a cabin removed from the craziness of high traffic hotels or other busy venues.

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Perfect get away. Clean and very cozy. No internet but that turned out to be not as big of a problem as we were afraid of. We didn't turn on the tv or needed the air. We hope to go back soon.
