Why Dave Wiley chose Murphy

We spent over a year searching for the ideal location in this area of the Smoky Mountains and found it here at Persimmon Creek Cabin. The property is 3+/- acres and our creek runs through the middle of the property just below the cabin. Unlike most of the other properties we previewed, it's very private here in that you cannot see any other cabins from here!

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is located in a picturesque community of upscale homes which are spread out with 3-4+ acres of thick woods in between. This provides lots of privacy and solitude yet it's easy to get to and not way out in the boonies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's exactly what we came for - rest and relaxation! The cabin is so quiet and has everything we need. The scenery to and from anywhere is very majestic. The local people are warm and very helpful. Thank you very much for allowing us this wonderful time here at your cabin!

persimmon creek cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and how well equipped this cabin was. The owner was very courteous and very easy to get along with,down to the smallest detail. This was a wonderful week for my husband and me to just get away from the Florida humidity and the every day hassles. At the end of our week we actually wished we could stay another week. We highly recommend this cabin to those who want a peaceful,refreshing retreat!!! My husband and I were thrilled that it snowed in the mountains the night we arrived and the autumn colors were in full glory at the end of our week.Thanks go to owner for sharing his little piece of heaven with us.We will definately make plans to visit again!!!

A remote get a way

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was cozy and comfortable. All the amenities of home. It is remote, but not so remote as to be an inconvenience to go anywhere. Would we come back again? Most likely.

Quite, relaxing and private.

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we were expecting. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the deck listening to the creek flow past the cabin. The only negative we encountered was a thunderstorm that caused the power to go out. We wished there had been a candle around so that we were not in the dark for so long.

Owner's Response: Power outages do occur from time to time and for this reason we've provided two (2) large hand held 6V flashlights, one (1) small handheld flash light and two (2) 6V camping lights. The camping lights are bright enough to light up a room such that everyone can move about safely and normally. All of these lights are located in the laundry closet on the shelf above the laundry detergent. There is also a hard wired emergency exit light installed in the kitchen/great room which comes on automatically when the power goes out. I'm always "on call" and available by text, phone and email after hours and weekends to assist our sorry you were in the dark when I could have quickly corrected the situation.

This location gave us great access to the southern side of great smokey mountains. We spent time in Telico Plains, Nanthala National Forest and Cherokee NC. Perfect place to relax.

Enjoyable Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this quaint creek front cabin. The owner was excellent to work with and the cabin was well stocked. We enjoyed walking the paths along the creek (except for the huge dogs we came upon after ending up along the roadside) and seeing all of the beautiful colors. Sitting out on the porch with a cup of coffee and a book in the morning was part of my favorite part of the stay. There was plenty of kindling to be found along the paths for the sweet fireplace inside. We chose to snuggle up on the comfy couch inside instead of using the outdoor fire pit. This location was far enough to be in the country but just around the corner from plenty of stores, etc. It was an excellent choice as far as location goes to do several day trips in all four directions. We especially enjoyed the John C. Campbell school and the River Walk in Murphy. I don't think anyone would be disappointed if they chose to stay here! Thank you again Mr. Wiley for sharing your mountain home with us.
