Our priority is to provide extra clean and comfortable accommodations. All amenities are included to make your stay a relaxing and memorable experience.

About Property Owner

We've been in the guest services industry for over 25 years, operating both a Bed & Breakfast and vacation rental home in Key West, FL during that time. This background coupled with our full time professionalism and quick response time can be a benefit to you for a quality, stress free vacation experience.

Property Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Property Owner chose Murphy

We spent over a year searching for the ideal location in this area of the Smoky Mountains and found it here at Persimmon Creek Cabin. The property is 5.5 acres and our creek runs through the middle of the property just below the cabin. Unlike most of the other properties we previewed, it's very private here in that you cannot see any other cabins from here!

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is located in a picturesque community of upscale homes which are spread out with 4+ acres of thick woods in between. This provides lots of privacy and solitude yet it's easy to get to and not way out in the boonies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear David:



"You can't imagine what a good time we had at your Cabin. It was one of the most enjoyable vacations we ever had! At New Year's the rest of the States were freezing to death but we were enjoying the cold. We were hopping for snow and we had it. Everything was perfect.



I'm sending a few pictures of our time at the cabin.

Thank you very much for all."

persimmon creek cabin

  • 5 out of 5
We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and how well equipped this cabin was. The owner was very courteous and very easy to get along with,down to the smallest detail. This was a wonderful week for my husband and me to just get away from the Florida humidity and the every day hassles. At the end of our week we actually wished we could stay another week. We highly recommend this cabin to those who want a peaceful,refreshing retreat!!! My husband and I were thrilled that it snowed in the mountains the night we arrived and the autumn colors were in full glory at the end of our week.Thanks go to owner for sharing his little piece of heaven with us.We will definately make plans to visit again!!!

Comfortable, cozy cabin in a great location.

  • 4 out of 5
Great location for nice day trips, beautiful area and a perfect cabin to stay. The cabin was comfortable, cozy, clean and had everything we needed. It took a little bit of rehab initially to not have phone or internetservice, but how lovely is that!
We spend Christmas here and had a wonderful family time.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time at the cabin. The place is beautiful, clean, cozy, peaceful, and equipped to the little details. We enjoyed it to the max and can't wait to go back. Nothing better that staying in the cabin to relax and disconnect from the city. It is also close to very interesting points such as as Great Smoky Mountains, Ruby Falls, Rocky City, Murphy. Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Fantastic David & Sandra...another happy vacation at Persimmon Creek Cabin! There are so many adventures nearby to explore; we discovered a hidden treasure at North Shoal Creek falls this summer after previous guests had located this awesome waterfall. We look forward to having you back again in 2014. All the best.

Spectacular Summer Getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
Persimmon Creek was precisely as advertised - and immaculately clean. The property is gorgeous and very well tended. Our boys (ages 11 and 8) loved the creek and spent hours exploring. The fire-pit area was easily accessible. Walking paths on the property were also easily traversed. There was a perfect spot just inside the property entrance for a little ball playing, as well.

Inside the cabin, there was plenty of room for us all to be together, or to spread out for some quiet time to relax. The bedrooms are very spacious with tons of closet space and hangers provided. Both beds were very comfortable (and no complaints from the little guy about the futon) with plenty of pillows and blankets for everyone. We really appreciated all of the hooks and storage space in the bathrooms, too! The kitchen had plenty of counter and storage space and was equipped with absolutely everything we could have needed (there were even plastic dishes and step stools for little ones). The A/C was nice and cold - though we rarely needed it as we had the windows open when we were "home" in the mornings and evenings (What a refreshing change from our Florida climate!). There was plenty of hot water for everyone -and so nice to have indoor laundry! There were ample outlets for all of our electronics. Internet access was easy (though slow) with our phone's mobile hot spot. We had no problem with bugs (likely due to the rain) - but very much enjoyed watching the Daddy Long-legs spiders on the front porch (little guy said they "dance").

This was truly a perfect spot for us! The location was great - less than 5 minutes from the main road. The kids loved watching the GPS take us over state lines for North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia in such short periods of time. Super Walmart is only 20 minutes away. We made a couple of trips to Bryson City for tubing at Deep Creek (awesome, but lots of walking to put in) and rafting on the Nantahala. We visited the John Campbell Folk School and enjoyed sharing a meal with some of their students and instructors. Mercier Orchards was fantastic! It was too rainy to go picking - but we did plenty of shopping and enjoyed a delicious lunch. We also enjoyed visits to the Wagoneer Adventure Park, Helen, GA, Herbs (yum!), Rock City, and downtown Murphy.

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at Persimmon Creek. Dave was a pleasure to work with, and responded to texts within minutes. We highly recommend and definitely plan to return

Nice time at the cabin.

  • 4 out of 5
Clean and comfortable place to stay that has everything needed. Nice to have a washer/dryer on the property. Very convenient to white water rafting and shopping in the surrounding towns. Nice being off the highway so don't hear cars/trucks and having enough property so not on top of another cabin.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! The private setting here and multitude of adventurous activities nearby is what attracted us to this area and eventual purchase of this 5.5 acre property.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 out of 5
This cabin is exceptional. We have stayed in several different locations in North Carolina and this is our favorite and will come back again. The cabin and area is perfect for a week and has all that you need. We loved the creek experience and all that it has to offer. We visited several waterfalls and did some hiking. We drove to Smoky Mt. Natl. Park and although we didn't get very far because of the road closing, we saw beautiful scenery none the less. Stopped in Cherokee and did a little shopping.We had dinner one night at Doyles on the hill and it was very good.
