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 / Andrews Area

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.

Even prettier in person...

  • 5 of 5

This is the one stop looking! We had such a great weekend here. The views are even better in person if that can even be possible! They have every appliance you could think of for cooking. The house is completely undated inside and the cleaning lady does an amazing job. Everything was immaculate upon arrival. Surround sound, remote controlled gas fireplace, and Wi-Fi. There is an air hockey table in a separate room with a trundle bed. I'm mentioning this because I didn't realize it from the description or photos. We would definitely stay again. I recommend staying 4 days to truly enjoy everything. The casino was maybe 10 minutes away as well as Walmart for supplies. They also offered a military discount which was the deciding factor for our military family. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home!!

Lovely stay for our spring break

  • 4 of 5

This home is in a great location, a close drive to all the attractions we wanted to visit. It also has amazing amenities that kept my family of 5 as well as my in laws entertained at night. Kitchen was a dream, came well equipped with everything I needed. Ingles and Walmart is a short trip away. Beautiful views, was able to see the rising of the pink moon before clouds covered it.

I highly recommend this property. Thank you!

Note - There's a cardinal that comes every morning and flies into the windows.

nice view, lots of amenities to keep kids busy on rainy day

  • 5 of 5

Took a trip for spring break with my family and my sisters. Plenty of room for everyone. Great game room with pool table, air hockey and ping pong. Beautiful view and fully stocked home with everything you could every need for relaxing or cooking. Only thing I could say negative was that its a bit out of the way if your looking for outdoor adventures like hiking or sightseeing. But I am sure a lot of the homes in NC might be that way. We still took the hour or two drive to some hiking trails as everyone wanted to see some waterfalls and beautiful nature. I now have the bug to start looking for something to buy up that way for my family.

Great week in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, well-appointed home with beautiful views in every direction. Easy to access from the highway with paved roads all the way to the driveway. The kitchen had everything we needed for all of our meal prep and serving and the dining area easily accommodated 9 of us at each meal. The 2 large living areas were perfect for different tastes in movies and games. Pool and ping pong tables were a hit with everyone. Very reasonable rate for the size of the home and amenities. Very comfortable stay in the mountains with nothing to think about but relaxing and enjoying time with family. Highly recommend!

A great place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. The owners have done a great job, with all of the little extras, of making it feel like a "home", not a rental house. Casino nearby, home has great amenities, Cherokee an hour away. House is great for families...or a couple...or 3 couples. We will be back. Thanks for loaning us your mountain home!

GREAT

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect. Stayed there for 4 days with our kids and grandchildren. The view was amazing . Enough room for our whole family and the friends that came to visit. The game room downstairs was the hit for the kids and the kitchen was my best friend.. the driveway was a little steap but once you get use to going up and down it its no big deal. We will book this home in the future when we return to North Carolina.
