My name is Crystal. I live on a farm with my husband, Gerald and son, Clayton. I am slightly addicted to horses and love working with animals. I have stock dogs that help me with most everything I do on the farm. We have cattle, goats and a few chickens.
We bought this piece of property with a lovely home on it from the family of a man named Sam Murphy because it joined our farm and we thought it would be a good place to try the vacation rental business. It went so well that we have since built two more cabins on the same property. We love meeting new people and sharing some of the great experiences of country living with others.
Murphy's Retreat was our first vacation rental and the screened in porch overlooking the river is still my favorite spot on the whole Murphy's Place property. I love to sit out there and drink my coffe while listening to the river gurgling along down below.
Thank you for sharing Murphy's Place with us. It is beautiful here and we had a wonderful time. Everything from start to finish was perfect. We had a lot of fun laughing, sharing old memories and making new memories. What a wonderful trip with the girls!! Hoope to be back again soon!
We had a wonderful time at Murphy's retreat and would recommend the place to anyone traveling to the area!! Crystal was wonderful and everyone else was so kind and amazing!
It is a beautiful, comfortable, clean house with lots of room. The deck has a fantastic view and there is a great picnic table next to the deck. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the river. The pavilion next to the river is also very nice. Overall, everything was better than we expected. Perfect for larger groups and all of us noncampers!
Came to these parts from northern Wisconsin where every winter I would rent out a cabin on a frozen lake and enjoy the cold with a fireplace, some wine and a book. I have lived in MO. for five years and had not found anything to compete with those experiences. Since I was hosting a wine tasting at Peaceful Bend, I thought it a good idea to stay close by. The property was recommended to me by a couple different folks but still my expectations were low. Well, my expectations got a slap up side the head when our small group stepped inside this wonderful retreat. Terrific view, comfy beds, immaculate house keeping, a wonderful wood burning fireplace, and close to a winery. Pretty near perfect. Looking forward to next stay.
Murphy's Retreat is a awesome place to stay..We (Group of 15) had a beautiful weekend here.
Located in midst of Scenic Meramec River bank..The rooms were very neat and clean and tastefully decorated. The scenary from the Patio is absolutely awesome. The pictures don't do any justice it;s true beauty. This place truely reminded me of "Home Stays" in my native place Coorg, India. The host Crystal is very friendly. She goes out of the way to ensure you have a good time.
Our group unanimously want to go back there in the future and I would recommend this to everybody who wants a quiet and very relaxing holiday.
My husband and I have stayed twice at Murphy's Retreat and we recommend it highly to those who want to get away and relax. The cabin has a wonderful view of the Meremac river from it's screened in porch. There is a winery close by where we sat, drank wine and listened to live music. We relaxed at night in the big jaccuzzi tub. The cabin is spacious and clean. We love it!
WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL. My hubby and I found Murphy's Retreat to be a quite back to nature romantic get away, I enjoyed the bathub with the jaccuzi jets sooo relaxing! The price could be tweeted down tho, I think more specials could be offered like maybe during the weekdays and such, very dog friendly, everything within your reach to make for a lovely get away. !
