Property Details

Updated: May 27, 2015
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 11/2 Baths, Sleeps 4

OUR cabin the Sanctuary in the Sky, HAS THE BEST VIEWS IN MURPHY on a VERY private mountain only 2 miles from Downtown. Our Best Renting Cabin Hands Down! Read our REVIEWS! Please email me for a link to tons more pictures or go to my website. My website is!sanctuary/cwfj. Briefly, this homey and cozy 2 bedroom/ one and a half bath cabin has 50 mile views with gorgeous night lights of Peachtree and the mountain ranges of Murphy, Andrews, Georgia and beyond! The Sanctuary sleeps 4 persons and is located on a privately owned mountain only 2 miles from downtown Murphy, has beautiful furnishings, a gas log fireplace, two large decks (one is covered, one is open), a detached garage….. We have it all! Pictures can not possibly do this cabin and it's view justice, however, for an enticing taste of just how beautiful this mountain and our cabin really is…..

In detail, our cabin is a unique home located just four miles from Ingles and Wal-mart BUT you will feel as if your miles from nowhere. The home is two stories with the main living area and the two main bedrooms on the main floor. There is one and a half baths upstairs and a shower downstaris as well. The spectacular views are from every room and there are an abundance of windows to show it all off. I really believe that we have the best views in all of Murphy. You can see Peachtree and Andrews and at night the lights are just so beautiful!

The decks are incredible. There is one covered with an outdoor dining table and one exposed with lots of seating to sit and enjoy the nature. Our living room area is cozy with a charming gas rock fireplace, comfortable couch and recliners and tasteful art work. We have a bear theme going and love all things BEARS. There are sliders across the whole back of the living room for looking out at our long range mountains. I can not say it enough......The views are truly spectacular!!!!! The kitchen/dining room is airy, cheerful and has everything you will need. Large windows in both bedrooms on the main floor look out over the Mountain ranges insuring the mountins will be the first thing you see when you awake in the morning. We want the cabin to feel as if this is your home away from home. Therefore, it has many of our treasures and special touches that we know you will love as much as we do.

Our philosophy is we would rather have guests in our home every week at a more than reasonable price than have an occasional rental at a higher price. I think you will find our prices a lower than the average for a cabin with the views, charm and close location to downtown Murphy and shopping that we offer. You will save money in gas alone being so close to town. By the way, our weeks are a full 7 nights. Do not believe me about how great this cabin is; read the reviews! Prices are subject to change. I don't keep a calendar online so please contact me to find out availability.

PLEASE email me for my personal website address because I have so many beautiful pictures of the home that I could not put here...

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had no expectations when we started out because so many online places aren't represented properly. Joanie was great in giving information about the cabin and area around Murphy. She interfaced with the owners and we sent our money. When we arrived the cabin was exactly as it was represented plus much more! In reality the cabin was perfect. The furniture was very nice and comfortable and the beds were4 extremly comfortable as well. The Kitchen was so easy to work in and I loved the "bears". This is certainly a place we woudl visit again-especially in leaf season. Thank you all for a really nice visit in NC!

Excellent vacation home!

Sanctuary in the Sky lives up to its name totally! We felt we were looking down on creation. It was so quiet on the mountaintop. We live at the coast and work in the vacation rental market. This home met all of my expectations and was exactly as advertised.

We enjoyed or 25th wedding anniversary on New Years Eve. Quiet was what we wanted and quiet was what we got. We would wake each morning and laze in bed to watch the sun rise over the mountaintop. The sun popped up over the mountains at 7:47 a.m.!!!! We were fortunate to have the temperatures in the 60s when we arrived then we even had some snow (just a bit) a few days later.

We took a day trip to Tennessee then to Georgia, then back "home”. An absolutely gorgeous drive even in the winter!

We would do my vacation here again in a minute and have recommended it to all of my friends!! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
