Maggie Valley cabin description

Come to the PONDEROSA for ultimate relaxation. A beautiful two story log home at 4900 feet of elevation in the mountains of Maggie Valley, North Carolina, on Balsam Mountain. A serene private woodsy home on 1.25 acres with wonderful view. Be in remote privacy and feel the stress flow out of you.

Sit in the new 2011 HOT TUB under covered deck sit and rock your cares away. Back deck with 6 rocking chairs and hot tub. No houses are visible from back deck, only woods , wonderful long range and valley views. Both bird feeder and hummingbird feeder on back porch. Also with second uncovered porch in front with 4 chairs. Can view few houses only from driveway area. There is a house close by uphill used as secondary home and not rented and house at end of driveway that is vacant. But this is last house on the road and no other houses will be viewed from back deck where view is. Ponderosa has recent extensive DVD movie selection 2 HDTV's ; AIR HOCKEY and FOOSBALL available, take a 20 minutes hike to Smoky Mountains, roast marshmallows at the FIREPIT. Two firepits available, one in front yard and one down path in the woods. Feel like you are camping at the firepit which is down a path. Or just plain relax. The chipmunks, hummingbirds, and Carolina wrens also like to visit the Ponderosa. A couple times of the year Edgar the elk stops by for a visit. That is what my guest named the elk. There are numerous hummingbirds during summer months.

Once at the Ponderosa, you are away from civilization with total peacefulness. The temperature at the Ponderosa averages a minimum 10 degrees cooler than the valley. Open the windows for fresh air, but if needed gas heat or AC available. Wireless internet is available on porches and throughout house for those that like to surf the internet and be with nature at same time.

Road is a hard surface dirt/gravel with steep access for 0.5 mile. Total length of road is 1.3 mile. Would recommend all wheel drive for inclement weather ie snow. ( Snow usually falls in Jan, Feb, March) I have used my Camry many times over the years. Front wheel drive is needed in summer months. The road does have guardrail on initial 0.3 mile of road.
Please if need more pictures, have a letter with pictures ready to send out, just ask for it. thanks!
Please note : minimum age to rent condo is 25 years old. If 21 to 25 years old, I consider on individual basis but increase returnable security deposit to $225.
For family reunions on a mountain top , please ask about next door neighbor property available called Smoky Sunrise.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: I love the humor; so what is funnier than Jim drinking from a cup with an elk on it with edgar the elk in the front yard? Jim and Paula bought this home as a family getaway. It was the best thing we ever did. We always feel totally relaxed when come back from the mountains. The Ponderosa has a very homey feel. It definitely gave our family quality time. Now the kids are grown up and just Jim and myself go on trips to the Ponderosa. I try to keep everything that will be needed for that special cabin on top of the mountain experience. We love the elk that come by; they are fantastic animals and makes us happy. I also love walking to Heintooga Road in the smokies.

                      Why the Owner Chose Maggie Valley:
                      the true cabin experience with modern amenities and great view; Love the walks around cabin and elk :)

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Blackberries everywhere in July and August. Like the privacy of being in the woods with great view. Favorite is sitting in hot tub on cold night looking at the lights of Lake Junaluska on a clear night. Like walking around all the dirt roads and hiking to Heintooga Road in the smokies. The fire pit in the summer time is surrounded by woods and house not visible secondary foliage. You can sing loud and we have terrible singing voices. Love watching the hummingbirds zoom around. And Edgar the Elk is always welcome when he stops by.
