Absolutely beautiful cabin. We enjoyed ourselves.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was nice. No complaints at all. I just wish there were instructions on how to connect the t.v. to the Wi-Fi.

The log home is beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 enjoyed this log home so much. We loved the big stone wood burning fireplace. We enjoyed cooking in the big open kitchen. There was plenty of room for our 4 granddaughters to play while inside. We relaxed, fished and enjoyed some of the beautiful waterfalls. We did our shopping in The town of Murphy and liked Ingles the market that had a great bakery, meat market and a Starbucks. If you want to get away from traffic and crowds, this is the place to go. Tom Loughran, the owner, was wonderful to work and communicate with.

Awesome Cabin! Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Murphy NC. The area is great and the Loughran's cabin is amazing. Beautifully decorated with all the conveniences of home and top of the line everything. Lots of room for the entire family to stretch out. Welcoming neighbors but not to close to intrude on your privacy. Bedding and linens crisp and clean. Very close to the marina, where we rented a boat and had a great time at sunset. Internet access and cell phones were available, only wished for satellite or local TV. Looking to buy our very own Murphy NC family home, but if we don't, we will definitely call Tom again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful Murphy home with us! Take care - The Rivera's from Tampa, FL.

Great getaway from the hustle and bustle!

  • 5 of 5

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!
