About owner/property manager

Ex-military officer who landed in NC and decided to never leaver.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2014

Why owner/property manager chose Tarheel

My plan was to have this be my first flip home. However, I got carried away with upgrades, fell in love with the views, and the warm feel of Murphy and it's wonderful, friendly residents. Bought my two partners out and finished the project with the quality required to eventually call it my retirement home.

What makes this house unique

Views, views, views! Also love the privacy and the pool. Not everyone who visits wants to show off their bathing suit. :)

The small town is so much fun (live music, etc.), don't miss a night on the town early into your trip! Have the town preacher serve you a beer and share the word at Parson's. He won't bring it up unless you do, but he has a great story and is easy to love!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a great stay Oct 12 through Oct 17 2017. The property was clean and well kept. There was plenty of room for our guests. The pool was great over looking the river and mountains. We would recommend a stay at this location. The property is close to town and amenities. We love and frequent the area definitely will book in future.

Great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

House fit our family of 7 perfectly. A little hard to find late at night, but only a short drive to town and in a beautiful location. We want to come back when the pool is open. Thank you!

Great weekend stay.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property the weekend of October 6th to celebrate multi-60th birthdays . The house was great with lots of room. We paid extra to heat the pool and it was well worth the money. Fortunately the weather was warm and we were able to use it Friday and Saturday but it rained on Sunday. The house is a little difficult to get to (several roads and turns) but it had the best view on the street. The fire pit would have been wonderful if it had been colder outside but we had a fire anyway and just sat a little further away.

We found it to be as advertised and had no difficulties working with Scott. He answered questions quickly.

We would definitely rent this property again.

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better trip. The view of the river, large outdoor deck and outside pool sold us on the house, which is everything you can expect from the pictures! The house was nicely decorated with tvs in each room and a fireplace in the living room. The beds were very comfortable and there was enough room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The house is quite remote, so the transportation options are limited without Uber or cab services, but a perfect getaway from it all. Absolutely wonderful weekend. We will certainly be back!
