About Harry and Kathy Swart
Two brothers and their wives are the proud owners of this home. One resides in the beautiful state of Colorado, which inspired the name of the house and the other resides in Central Florida.We have been visitors and land owners in the area since 1995 and have finally built our vacation dream home on this beautiful mountain top site.
Harry and Kathy Swart purchased this House in 2012
Why Harry and Kathy Swart chose Murphy
Over the years we have found this area to be peaceful and beautiful yet full of opportunities for outdoor activities. The people of this wonderful valley that we have come to know are warm and friendly and we have developed many lasting friendships. Every time we arrive in the valley we feel like this is home; and now we can say that it truly is our home away from home.
What makes this House unique
This home has one of the most beautiful views in the area. Locals who have visited our home are awed by the unobstructed beauty of the view. We feel blessed to be able to share our home with you and have taken great care to provide you with a wonderful experience. And now you are only a short 10 minute drive to the beautiful new Harrah's casino.

Peaceful mountain retreat
This was a beautiful mountain retreat, clean, comfortable and peaceful. I called the owners once to ask a question about the hot tub and they responded immediately and were very kind and helpful.
It’s got so much, Direct TV, pool table, hot tub, hammock and a view for days. Short drive to stores etc.
During my stay there were quite a lot of stink bugs around but I don’t mind bugs at all, so they didn’t bother me a bit.
Would love to come back some day!
Comfortable home, great location
Our group of four adults and one young child enjoyed our stay at this nicely decorated, comfortable home just a few minutes from Murphy. Very easy access to the casino and not far from a grocery store/Walmart, restaurants (the Chowder House is excellent), and downtown Murphy. The master bedroom on the main floor has a luxurious bathroom. The view from the deck is beautiful, and even though you're in a gated community with another house just down the hill, the property is remote and relaxing. There are a ton of board games and puzzles for both kids and adults. We didn't use the hot tub but it looked clean and inviting.
Any complaints I'd have would be with former guests (broken pieces on the chess board, broken chair at the kids' play table in the basement, etc.) who have obviously not treated the place as if it were their own. I would suggest to the owners that some seating in front of the house would be a nice touch; unfortunately, it was way too hot in late September to enjoy sitting on the deck from mid-afternoon until just about sunset. We ended up pulling a couple chairs around to sit in the shade at the front of the house, though the view there is mostly trees. Renters might want to bring a couple folding camp chairs if you're staying in the summer. That's the price you pay for that gorgeous west-facing sunset view!
If we were to return to this area, we would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Perfect! Beautiful mountain home!
We were in NC for a destination wedding and this home was perfect for our family. It was very nicely decorated and the views are amazing. The owners responded quickly to all of my questions before our arrival. The kitchen had everything we needed for the many impromptu meals we cooked. Everything about it was very relaxing and we will definitely be back to NC.
This house was wonderful for my husband and our friends to celebrate a birthday party. The house is huge! Plenty of space to watch movies and have dinner together. The rooms were very well furnished with a lot of space. The bathrooms were beautiful, something you see from a magazine. The house is perfectly located to where you have a gorgeous views of the mountains, but still very close to the main road to get to town. Would definitely stay there again!! Thank you for a beautiful home!
My third time here and each one just keeps getting better..
