“An amazing cabin to spend time in”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2017

We had planed for a few days of rest and relaxation. Plans don't always cooperate. Arrived with suffering with a stiff neck and on Wednesday early morning ended up in the emergency room at the hospital with severe neck spasms. My health problems didn't permit us a great stay however the cabin did give me a place of rest. I so want to go back and enjoy this fabulous cabin. It is well equipped and has every thing you need for a great vacation. It is very clean and so inviting Hopefully in a couple months when all my pain has subsided we will be able to really enjoy a few days of rest there

Response from the owner We are sad you had the neck problem. Yes, come back and do so R&R. Thanks for this nice review! Greg and Paula

“Very Nice Cabin”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2016

The cabin was great, quiet, tranquil, set off the main road, but not to far from town. Good location to go site seeing and trips thru the mountains. Want to thank Greg & Paula for the nice gift, and letting us rent their wonderful cabin. Randy & Leny

Response from the owner Randy & Leny, Thanks for this wonderful review! Hope Y'all return soon. Greg and Paula

“It was a quiet and peaceful weekend.”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

I appreciated how quickly they responded to our last minute request for the day we needed to be in the area. The cabin was clean, it was a peaceful and quiet setting, nestled in the woods, but not far from a main road.

Response from the owner We try to be accommodating as know folks make plans in the last second. Also we do one night bookings. Thanks for the nice review! Greg and Paula

My son Michael recently passed away and I needed to get away for a few days. I have stayed in these cabins 3 times now and they are beautiful. The cabin is clean and has everything you need to be very comfortable. Just bring food and your cloths and you'll be set! I absolutely LOVE murphy and Paula & Greg are great people to rent from. I will definitely be back!

Response from the owner We really appreciate you taking the time to write this awesome review! When guests return it validates all the great things folks say about us! Greg and Paula

Greg & Paula - The Running Bear Cabin we stayed in was absolutely perfect for my girlfriend and I to get away for the weekend for her birthday. The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. We had not a worry one from the time that we arrived to the time we pulled out. We only left the cabin once to take a stroll in the woods for about an hour. It was a much needed get-a-way for us both to spend some quality time together. Thank you - Richard & Deanna

Response from the owner Thanks Richard & Deanna for the fabulous review! Many folks come to the mountains to decompress from their every day lives. There is plenty to do also. Greg and Paula

“Best vacation get away for Christmas!”

Reviewed 28 Dec 2014

Booking online was quick and easy. The description of the property and amenities was perfect. The cabin was clean and welcoming. The size of the cabin was just right for the 5 of us. We appreciated being able to bring our small dog. The smaller bedroom could have used a bedside lamp. As we didn't know about the firewood not being there, we could have brought some with us. Otherwise, everything was great.

Response from the owner Thanks for taking time to post this great review! We love the feedback and will be looking into addressing them. There are plenty of places nearby to puchase firewood. Greg and Paula

“Wonderful stay”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2014

Very nice little cozy place. We loved it. Best part is the front porch with reclining chairs. Enjoying the clear sky through the trees is nature at its best!

Response from the owner Thanks for the very nice review. We are always pleased to hear guests enjoy the cabin. Yes, the clear skies in Murphy reveal so many stars and appear very close, it seems you could possibly reach out and touch them. Greg and Paula


Reviewed 16 Oct 2014

This cabin is perfect! It has a secluded feel, in a beautiful setting, on a great road for long scenic walks, and is cozy for 2 to 4 people. Having everything on one level was great as my mom was with me and she doesn't do stairs. A wonderful value!

Response from the owner Thanks for the nice review! We have 3 cabins that are on one floor,great for those who are not able to navigate stairs.We have decided to keep our prices reasonable so folks can afford a wonderful vacation in the beautiful Smokys.

“Good Cabin in a beautiful place”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2014

The cabin was neat and clean. Town was few miles away. Had a nice time with family. Greg was very helpful.

Response from the owner What a great place to connect with family in the beautiful Smoky Mountains! Thanks for the great review! All our cabins are kept clean by our fabulous cleaning folks. Murphy is a great location for seeing all the fun things in the mountains. Greg and Paula
