About Becky Sweeney

Retired paramedic from south Florida now enjoying the peaceful, laid back Smoky Mountain life. I am an avid outdoors lover and spend a lot of hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, whitewater rafting, and snowboarding. Obviously my best friend, Teva and I explore any and all local hikes, rivers and camping.

Becky Sweeney purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Becky Sweeney chose Murphy / Andrews Area

Perfect small getaway! I love the layout, wood interior, modern appliances and remote control gas fireplace. It's in a safe, secure "neighborhood" with easy access off state maintained roads. Perfect location between 4 major cities, yet remote.

What makes this cabin unique

Central location is equidistant from four large cites, Atlanta, Knoxville, Chattanooga, and Asheville.

Well appointed and centrally located cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very well stocked with all kinds of spices and cooking utensils. Also provided were lots of necessities like tp, paper towel, dish soap, etc. The cabin was very comfy and liveable. Easy to get to and centrally located. We enjoyed the indoor gas fireplace and fire pit outside. Was nice to have our dog welcome to stay. I appreciate someone who truly understands that dogs are a huge part of our families!

This cabin was awesome. It had all the luxuries of home and one I don't have, a gas fireplace. The fireplace was great to turn on in the morning chill and nighttime after the sun went down. The kitchen was stocked with every pot, pan and gadget you have at home. The comfortable modern log cabin was quiet and very sound, not like Abe Lincoln grew up in, again it was wonderful. Our dogs loved it. They felt right at home and if you and your dogs are into hiking, shopping and exploring this is the place. Becky, the owner, was as gracious and friendly as you would want. She was like an old friend. We would definitely come back

Beautiful, clean cabin with lots of thoughtful amenities

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was spotless and beautifully decorated. The bed was comfortable. The location was perfect...far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet but close enough to activities to not have to drive all day. We had a great stay and will definitely be back.

Extremely nice cabin

The entire stay was fantastic and everything we hoped for. Great location as we were able to make it to Georgia and Tennessee without any hassle. Beautiful cabin and great for our puppy too. Loved the fireplace! Can't wait to come back.

Awesome Cabin---Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

First of all, thank you for letting us stay at your cabin. Everything was clean and well stocked. We really enjoyed the view and the quiet neighborhood it's in.

We took a day trip to Lane Orchards in north Georgia for some apples. We went fishing in Cherokee lake and at the base of the Hiawassee dam. We even found some nice folks on Martins Creek Road who own a place called " Ye Ole Goat Farm".

And of course, every trip to Murphy has to include a stop by the Nantahalla Outdoor Center.

We will see you next year. Thanks again.
