About Jim and Reiko Ray
We are originally from Cincinnati, Oh. We moved to south Florida in 2002 and shortly after moving we realized that we really missed the seasons. We had vacationed in the area for Spring Break many times. We had hoped that one day we could have our own piece of this mountain paradise.
Jim and Reiko Ray purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Jim and Reiko Ray chose Murphy
This is our home away from home. We have all the amenities and comfort of home. All you need is to bring your clothes and get ready to relax!
What makes this Cabin unique
Birds Eye View has a beautiful non obstructed view that is in walking visit to the rivers edge. Also we are 3 miles from John Campbell Folk School and 5 miles from downtown Murphy. All the benefits of being close to civilization but the serenity of the mountains.

Great cabin-Great location
Well appointed cabin. Murphy is a quaint little town with plenty of antique stores to browse and some nice restaurants to try. We enjoy waterfall hikes and the cabin is a nice central location.
Clean, very well equipped kitchen, wonderful rockers on porch with beautiful view.
Perfect in every way!

Great place, great location
Loved the place, it's bigger than what the pictures show. Kitchen is fully equipped, having the river near is great. Overall a great place and would love to come back.
Perfect Christmas Vacation!!
This cabin was exquisite! The owners were great to communicate with like helping us the very 1st night when we had gotten stuck in traffic and arrived in the dark, much later than expected! Owners called to check on us after we arrived to make sure we found everything we needed as well! We spent Christmas here as a family and it was our favorite vacation thus far! We visited the beautiful city of Helen which was less than an hour away then spent a day in Bryson City, which our family loved and that again was just around an hour. The scenic view was breathtaking and we loved the uniqueness of Murphy too! Chevells restaurant downtown is delicious, a burger spot we found after the nature river walk we explored one day! We can’t wait to plan our next winter vacation in the mountains. My favorite part of the cabin is the amazing sunrise view in the mornings! You don’t want to miss it!
Wow, thank you for a raving review! We appreciate our guests and hope they feel at home while they are away from home. Please think of us if you come back to Murphy!

Outstanding home with fantastic views from wraparound porches
Beautiful home with 3 levels which was great for our two families. Two separate living areas. There is a Mountain View from every window. On the wraparound decks, you can relax and hear the rushing river rapids. Furnishings very nice adding to the mountain feeling; the fireplace gave it a cozy feeling. Kitchen well equipped enough to make a Thanksgiving dinner. Lots to do in the area. We went to the Smokies as a day trip. Merciers orchard only 24 miles away with apples and yummy pastries. Lots to do in Murphy too. Vineyards and breweries nearby. There is a pavilion in the neighborhood where the kids could fish. The owners were very responsive beyond expectations!
Thanks for sharing your home with us!
