Waynesville cabin description
Spend time in a charming historic home in the mountains of Western North Carolina. The Penney House is one of Waynesville's most treasured vacation houses with one of the best views in Haywood County. Now you can rent this home, once owned by the J.C. Penney family, for your visit to Waynesville and all that Western North Carolina has to offer. This historic, yet updated home, overlooks the sixth green at the Waynesville Country Club (WCC) and comes with an incredible view of the golf course and mountain vistas beyond - truly a one of a kind view. Enjoy morning coffee, family fun and games, or afternoon sunsets from the huge covered Veranda.
Walk to fine (Cork and Cleaver) and casual (Tap Room) dining at the WCC, or just a 3 minute drive brings you all the charm, dining, and shopping of downtown Waynesville. In addition to 27 championship holes at WCC, Laurel Ridge (5 minutes), Springdale (15 minutes) and Maggie Valley (20 minutes) championship golf resorts await. With an elevation of 3500 feet, you will enjoy perfectly cool evenings and warm days in the spring/summer/fall, or build a warm fire in the huge fireplace and enjoy the colder holiday months.
The Penney House is a perfect home base in Waynesville where you can stay while you shop, fish, sight-see, golf, explore, camp, dine out, or just relax.
If you've dreamed of staying in Western North Carolina for the spring, summer, or fall, now you can enjoy the same historic home where the J.C. Penney family stayed. Enjoy one of the best views in Western North Carolina while being only 3 minutes from downtown Waynesville and 30 miles from downtown Asheville.

What a treat!
What a treat!
We rented this property over the Fourth of July and our experience was fantastic--fireworks over the golf course included for no extra charge! Our son, daughter-in-law and two little ones joined us. They loved it, especially the secret passage upstairs and the beds built in the hall of the second floor. If you're looking for a quiet, restful, well-appointed place to stay in Waynesville, this is it! We enjoyed the community activities surrounding the 4th too! The owner provided information about places to visit or to dine that was most helpful. We had lots of good places to choose from for dinner. The description was most accurate in giving information about the property and its location; the photos accurately reflected the property and its amenities. The kitchen served our needs well. And, the doggie door was a special treat for our little ones. A great family vacation home! The owner was easy to work with and provided quick and efficient information. I would recommend this to friends and family and would certainly return for another vacation!

Since we are from Florida, we were really looking forward to spending the month of August 2010 in the cabin. The weather was much warmer than average, but still a lot nicer than in Florida. The cabin is great: all the amenities, such as kitchen equipment nice high-def TVs and a nice stereo system. But the real lure is the view, which is "to die for." Somewhere I heard that it was the second nicest view in North Carolina, and I'd like to see the one that beat it out! All in all, our stay was great. We had guests come in several times, and they all enjoyed themselves. And the Waynesville area is, to my wife and me, the nicest area in western North Carolina ... a lot less snooty than the Highlands-Cashiers area, for example. Also, the owner, Michael Lee, is a pleasure to deal with.
