Property Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Property Owner 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!!!

Excellent Vacation Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The Persimmon Cabin was absolutely outstanding. More like a home really, excellent location with a nice creek running right alongside the front porch. Easily accessible to great vacation spots in North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee. If you want a little exercise, just walk out the door and follow the dirt road up to Kwali Pass. When you get hungry head into Murphy, NC for the pizza buffet at Downtown Pizza. Can't recommend this cabin highly enough. We plan a return visit for sure! Ken & Jackie from Exeter, New Hampshire.

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home close to main road, but magically tucked away at the same time. Owner was very welcoming and wanted to ensure that everything was as it should be upon arrival. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Great week in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

Great location off the main road. The kitchen was well stocked and the furniture was comfortable. Everything was clean and neat. We really enjoyed the outside fire pit and the indoor wood heater. There are plenty of woods to explore and it is beautiful. The two cons were no dishwasher and the gravel road is very close to the cabin and there was enough traffic that it was noticeably noisy at times. Even with those drawbacks I would recommend this as a great vacation value.

A Wonderful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for four nights. We found the cabin to be comfortable and cozy and extremely private which we really enjoyed. Coming this time of the year, we really enjoyed the fall foliage color change and the beautiful weather which was a nice change from the heat and humidity of Florida. There are many activities in the area or one can just enjoy the solitude, peace and quiet.

The owner is a pleasure to work with and ensures that needs are met and questions are answered. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and hope to visit again in the very near future.
