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

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.

Cute cozy cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of space, warm fireplace, comfy beds. Great grassy meadow and creek a short walk away. Only downside was no dishwasher. For a family with little kids, this was tough as we cooked a lot.

Beautiful Knotty Pine Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful beautiful setting. Becky provided many amenities for those who may have forgot something. Many different things to do in the area rafting, hiking, scenic drives, gambling (just a few). Cabin was clean and had an at home welcoming feeling. Small handicap handles mounted on the wall offering assistance to step in an out of shower. Great for those like myself who are handicapped and normally use a walk in shower. Can't say enough good things about this cabin. Would for sure rent again.

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
