About Melissa Cruz
After 31 years of working hard and sacrifice, finally a dream come true! We now have our family cabin. A place to get away from it all, reconnect with my family and friends. Also, close to my Tennessee and North Carolina Families, feeling blessed.
Melissa Cruz purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Melissa Cruz chose Murphy
My name is Missy, my family and I live in Florida. We love the mountains and bought this cabin in 2015. We have rented many other cabins over the years and it was time to finally buy one of our own! My family and I always enjoy the beautiful mountains and enjoy taking a break from the heat in Florida by spending time in this beautiful area. When it's not being utilized by us, we have decided to rent it out and let others create their own memories with their family and friends. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
