  • Enjoyable Family Visit


    We have rented cabins near Murphy before when visiting family in Marble. This cabin was the best by far in both location and overall views/comfort. We appreciated the extra towels for our party, often my complaint when staying in other places

    The only suggestion would be to include some creamers along with the starter pack of K-cups.

  • Beautiful View, Loved the Birds


    The property has an incredible view of the mountains. It is very quiet and relaxing. In addition, we were provided with food for the hummingbirds and other birds (an unexpected extra). We had several hummingbirds the entire stay, plus cardinals, chickadees and many more. The cabin is large and open with a large deck. We had our meals, coffee, glass of wine there every day. There is also a lower deck that we didn't use. It was a great spot for our 4 day stay in the area.We did have two minor issues (thermostat and wifi). I just mention that because the communication when experiencing the minor issues was immediate and very helpful. I would recommend the property and will certainly consider again next time we are in the area.

  • Wonderfully relaxing


    Property was just as listed and was perfect for a relaxing weekend. There was everything we needed, including salt and pepper, cooking oil, pancake mix (!), and personal toiletries. Great view from the covered porch which is also perfect in the rain.
