  • Very nice home! Relaxing large private porch over looking stream and yard.

    "Stayed here while attending weekend class at John C Campbell Folk School. School is only about 2.5 miles away. We really enjoyed the stay. Nice to able to sit on porch and hear the stream. Enjoyed feeding the fish and watching the hummers. Just a very nice time all around, we will do this again."

  • Great getaway from the hustle and bustle!

    "We were looking for a brief last-minute getaway, and Tom was very accommodating. We arrived later than planned, well past dark, and with Tom's directions and our GPS were able to find our way after only one wrong turn into a neighbor's driveway (who shortly thereafter popped up the hill on his 4-wheeler to be sure we found the place). Be aware, the last little bit is a dirt/pinestraw covered one-lane road, and thankfully we had not driven my fairly low-to-the-ground convertible, which would definitely have scrubbed/gotten stuck at one sharp/steep turn up the hill. If you arrive in the daytime, you'll see a lovely little vineyard as you wind your way back to this house. The house was perfect, great layout, plenty of space, very nicely appointed kitchen - everything was tidy, uncluttered, and inviting. The master suite on the main level has a lovely huge bathroom, corner tub, and oversized tile shower. Linens were sufficient, the bedding was wonderful. The rear deck has chairs and a nice gas grill for grilling out and relaxing. The back of the house overlooks what appeared to be a very low pond (as the lake was also extremely low, not sure if it was due to drought or seasonal draining for maintenance?) and the small entrance road that curves around to other homesites. With the exception of noticing only a couple of cars passing this house to reach their own homesites, the location is quiet and fairly private. Our first night was quite chilly, and as it was late we just piled on the blankets and decided to figure it out in the morning without bothering the owner. After finding there was no hot water the next morning, we investigated in the basement and found the water heater and HVAC turned off, so if you have a problem, check that first! Also discovered a window open in the upstairs bedroom, which we closed. Once we had hot water and heat, all was well! The seller was fairly quick to respond to texts asking for clarification so that issues could be addressed. Neither of us (on different carriers) had any cell reception. There is wifi, it was sometimes slow depending on number of users, but I was able to stay in touch with my business via Google hangouts, iMessage, and email. We never attempted to stream Netflix or similar services, so can't comment on whether that would work well. Also, know that you are about 30 minutes from Murphy, so no "running out for a gallon of milk" - plan accordingly! And if you want a great burger, go to Chevelle's!"

  • Amazing view!!

    "Thank you! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home. What a beautiful place. We spent many hours gazing at the magnificent view. We played some of the board games, and also ventured out to explore the surrounding area including the beautiful waterfall you suggested. The house was very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything I needed for baking and preparing all meals. We felt very peaceful and happy while staying there, and did not want to leave when our last morning arrived. We are looking forward to our next visit"

  • Plenty of room for our Family Vacation

    "The cabin was not hard to get to and close to town. While taking a walk on the road, we learned we were at the top of the mountain and could see the city below. We had two mid-size cars and one small car and were able to park all three there. Driveway was narrow but not a headache. Sleeping areas worked great for us with us (the seniors) taking the main level, the parents with one young child in the lower level and the single adult in the loft area. A bathroom is located on each level. The view of the mountains is beautiful and sunsets were spectacular. We found time to sit out on the main deck and visit with each other. It is also wide enough that our grandson was able to run off excess energy while chasing bubbles his aunt had blown. I had never used a gas stove/oven before, but Victor assured me that it was easy to use and he was right. I would recommend the cabin to anyone wanting to stay here and if we do another family vacation in Murphy I would like to stay here again."
