About Dr Terry

My passion is to decorate our homes for comfort with upscale amenities while supplying my vacation renters with all the extras to make their stay special. With over 20 years of renting condos, I have learned what folks want for their vacation rental. With our children grown up and gone we just decided to open our private cabin to guests so they can enjoy our paradise. This is our piece of heaven where we come to get away from it all! I know you will enjoy it as much as we love it!!! These mountains refresh our souls!!!

Dr Terry purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Dr Terry chose Murphy

If you've ever driven thru the smoky mountain national park and on the south end you stop in the first small town for gas and McDonalds treats then you have been to Murphy, NC.!!!

That is what happened to us and we feel in love with the town. There is so so much to do that we have not even come close to doing all the fun things since our first trip there.

What makes this cabin unique

Rare to have cell service, high speed WiFi, satellite TV and paved roads in the mountains. We do!!! We are at the top of a mountain with a car ride or walk down to the base mountain for private access to the beautiful Hiawasee River. Bugs are bad in the mountains and we have that covered with TWO screened in porches. A Brand New Jacuzzi tub inside the screen porch for watching sunsets or relaxing. A large deck in the front yard for cocktails or sunning with a private fireplace for romantic evenings. Eat at the outdoor picnic table or take a nap in the shaded hammock. Private gas grill for your use. Also a stone Firepit for family songs, smores and gatherings. Parking for 10 cars or your RV. Location, Location, Location, so close to lakes, golf, fishing, tubing, white water rafting, gambling, shopping, dining and so much more!!!

Great view, super clean, everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

The house has a great view and located close to town. Super clean, and well stocked kitchen. We cooked our Thanksgiving dinner there and everything we needed we found. You will not be disappointed, as this is one of the cleanest homes I have ever rented. Thank you Terry for sharing your home with us.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a long weekend here and loved it! Home was fully stocked with everything you need and not far from town and other attractions we wanted to see. We enjoyed the hot tub and porches and the bed was super comfy!

My husband booked this cabin for my birthday weekend. We had an amazing time. This home is beautifully decorated, has everything you need and the views are amazing! We enjoyed the hot tub some during the day and nightly with the cool mountain air it was the way to relax! We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone and we will be back. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your home Terry. Jason and Traci

Property was just as described and everything was in good condition. Internet and wi-fi worked great. Having the porches screened was nice for keeping out mosquitoes at dusk especially while using hot tub. Driveway was paved nicely, plenty of room to park and turn around.

A very nice cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice cabin and comes furnished with everything you could ever need. We had comfortable furniture and all the TV channels you want. It has a very nice deck out front to sit and enjoy the fresh air. Eating tip: for a good breakfast go into town and go West on 64 and just a little ways down on the right you will find the Waffle King.

Not to mention the breathtaking views in the famous Smokey Mountains but the lake waters and rivers are for the thrill seeker in you! Take a boat ride on one of the four lakes close by or go tubing and white water rafting down the river. Oh yea and the trout stocked weekly and are plentiful for the fishermen. Go horseback riding or take a zip line ride. So many festivals and weekend farmers markets and art shows. Take your pick from 4 flea markets and more thrift shops than you can count. Walk the mountains right in our front yard or go downtown and walk the park with 3 mile trail.

If you just want to chill and relax, take a nap in the hammock, sun in the lounger on the deck, read by the indoor or outdoor fireplace, or take a zacuzzi spa before a nap. In the evening sip your favorite drink while watching the sunset in our front yard while watching the bunnies and deer come out to eat and then have fun making s'mores with your family by the stone fire pit.

Trust me you cannot do it all in a weeks vacation time.
