vacation rental description

OUR  cabin " Sanctuary in the Sky" HAS THE BEST VIEWS IN MURPHY on a VERY private mountain nly 2 miles from Downtown. Our Best Renting Cabin Hands Down!. Don't believe me! Read our REVIEWS! Please email me for a link to tons more pictures or go to my website. My website is cabinsinmurphy . 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! It 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't 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…..see our extensive slide show of Pictures! Email me and I will send you the link.

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't say it enough......The views are truly spectacular!!!!! The kitchen/dining room is airy, cheerful & 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 it’s 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'll save money in gas alone being so close to town. By the way, our weeks are a full 7 nights. Don't beleive me about how great this cabin is; read the reviews!
PLEASE email me for my personal website address because I have so many beautiful pictures of the home that I couldn't put here...

Peace Envelopes Us!

Review submitted: May 15, 2012   Date of arrival: May 15, 2012

Peace envelopes us each time we return to our "rented home" in North Carolina. Even before we store our belongings we hurry to the deck to renew our souls with the magnificent view of trees and hills and mountains. The hummingbirds seem to rush to greet us each summer when we return.
Numerous trails to follow down the hill always grant us surprises. Incredible mountain laurel in the spring, a panoply of wild flowers always, and once a mother possum moving what seemed like a hundred babies clinging to her back as she scurried into the woods.
We watch the mystery of fog lifting and sun burning through clouds many mornings while drinking coffee and basking in the fresh mountain air.
We rest quietly inside or out reading books, watching TV or videos that are on hand before traveling the short distance to town, near-by flea markets or The John Campbell Folk School for quick trips. The variety of activities within easy traveling distance will thrill any inquisitive mind or adventurous spirit. We never tire of our home away from home.
Thanks for a wonderful place to stay.
The Parsons

Review submitted: May 15, 2012   Date of arrival: May 15, 2012

Al and I have stayed in scores of B&B's, both in the US as well as in mexico, Norway and Ireland. This week has been the best vacation in our memory 4 the Sanctuary in the Sky will stay in our hearts forever! It is the best place we have ever stayed! Not only did we come to love Murphy NC but we feel we have made friends here in you guys. We already miss Murphy and can't wait for return in the fall. We will hope that we can stay at the Sanctuary again so we can see you. The view has lightened our hearts and enriched our souls. Thanks Again....Kathy and Al Lehotsky Springfield, Ohio

The views were unbelievable!!!

Review submitted: May 15, 2012   Date of arrival: May 15, 2012

We are packed and headed back to sunny Floirda. Have a 10 hour drive on my birthday- but it was well worth it. Guess there's probably so much to do here in NC, but we decided to hibernate in our brief stay here. We enjoyed oput stay so much. The views were unbelievable!!! The owners and Joanie made sure that everything was perfect here for my honey and me-from the grill being ready to a DVD already in the player. WE THANK YOU!!! We are taking w/ us memories neither of us will ever forget. This was our first vacation together and it couldn't have been nicer. Hope you enjoy your stay here at this little piece of heaven on earth! Jeff and Mary
