FOR SALE ~ 1/5 Fractional Ownership of this cabin. email inquiries to info@davewileyproperties.com

Dave Wiley purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Dave Wiley 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 3+/- 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 3-4+ 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

It's exactly what we came for - rest and relaxation! The cabin is so quiet and has everything we need. The scenery to and from anywhere is very majestic. The local people are warm and very helpful. Thank you very much for allowing us this wonderful time here at your cabin!

Cozy Country Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The large large windows and sky lights allowed everyone to enjoy the beautiful wooded lot with flowering rhododendron , a great carpet of moss and every shade of southern green vegetation !! The stream passing by the deck and side porches was music to our ears . Many ferns trimmed the banks of the fast flowing clear stream . Two graceful dear visited one afternoon . The surrounding countryside was so peaceful. We made a friend in the pasture nearby and even took a picture of him and his barn to paint pictures of later. We enjoyed several outings during the week. The John Campbell Craft Center was a treat as well as the NOC on the Nanahalla River , historical Murphy was fun too. We found the cabin to be clean uncluttered and well equipped . The heated bathrooms would be great for a Winter trip. All and all a great trip to the Mountains. Thank you Dave for sharing you home . We took a couple of bochures and will share with friends !!

Perfect for a quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cabin. What I liked best was sitting on the deck in the morning, reading my book, and listening to the babbling brook below. Cabin is secluded, quiet, and nestled among the trees. Inside clean and spacious, comfortable beds. Cable TV and Wi-Fi. What a way to "rough it!" Just wish our stay was longer.

Excellent Vacation Rental in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin had everything you could possible need in a vacation rental.

It was very clean, well furnished and comfortable. The all-important Wifi Internet and Cable TV were very good!

We had recently sold a summer cabin we had owned for many years in the nearby Ranger Estates subdivision and this cabin was a perfect replacement for a short family visit.

I would have liked to have been able to turn the large outside security light off at times to enjoy the night sky on the porch, but couldn't find a switch and didn't want to bother Dave, who was very responsive to the few other requests we made of him.

This cabin will be our first choice for any future visits to the Murphy area.

Our family had a great time at this cabin. It was just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this cabin. It was just what we were looking for. We spent time playing checkers in the living room, making smores at the fire pit, relaxing on the hammock, and grilling on the gas grill. There is not a lot to do close to the cabin, but our intent was mostly just to relax and this was perfect for that. For the times when we wanted to go exploring with the kids, we went to Rolling Thunder Tubing multiple times (12 mi, 17 min), the Wagon Master Adventure Ranch (15 mi, 29 min), Grandaddy Mimms Moonshine Distillery (28 mi, 37 min) and the nearby excellent BBQ at Jim's Smokin' Que, and the Toccoa River Swinging bridge (32 mi, 65 min).

There is also a nice mountain bike trail near Murphy called the Hanging Dog Trail with lots of verticals for a good cardio workout. If you drive to/from this cabin through Georgia, as we did, you may pass through Helen, GA and that is a great place to stop if so.

Sometimes dealing with trash at a rental cabin can be a pain, but that was not the case here because the trash facility is convenient and only about 10 minutes away. They have great hours and you can drop off trash almost any time.

Overall, we highly recommend this cabin and think others will enjoy it as much as we did. I always try to include both the positives and potential negatives, so here are the latter. There are at least 3 security cameras at the cabin, which was fine, but one of them was inside in the kitchen/living room area. We found that one a bit creepy so we threw a dish towel over it while we were there. There was a hammock available, but we didn't find any rope to tie it to the trees, so we ended up buying some rope at dollar general to do so. Finally, the fire pit was awesome but it would have been nice to have a small handsaw to cut up the bigger sticks we had collected from around the property.

We would definitely consider returning to this property and would recommend it for family or a couple looking for a romantic getaway. You could relax and do nothing here for a week or do a little bit of exploring. A great place for either path. The owner was incredibly responsive to any of our inquiries.

A remote get a way

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was cozy and comfortable. All the amenities of home. It is remote, but not so remote as to be an inconvenience to go anywhere. Would we come back again? Most likely.

Quite, relaxing and private.

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we were expecting. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the deck listening to the creek flow past the cabin. The only negative we encountered was a thunderstorm that caused the power to go out. We wished there had been a candle around so that we were not in the dark for so long.

Owner's Response: Power outages do occur from time to time and for this reason we've provided two (2) large hand held 6V flashlights, one (1) small handheld flash light and two (2) 6V camping lights. The camping lights are bright enough to light up a room such that everyone can move about safely and normally. All of these lights are located in the laundry closet on the shelf above the laundry detergent. There is also a hard wired emergency exit light installed in the kitchen/great room which comes on automatically when the power goes out. I'm always "on call" and available by text, phone and email after hours and weekends to assist our guests....so sorry you were in the dark when I could have quickly corrected the situation.
