Maggie Valley cabin description

The Alpine House is a log cabin perched on the side of Setzer mountain almost to the top and just across the road from the Cataloochee Ski Resort! The views are breathtaking and the cabin is a quintessential mountain cabin--log walls, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors on the upper level, and a huge balcony overlooking the valley. The upper floor has a large great room with wood stove, dining area and kitchen all open and vaulted. There is a large master suite with access to the balcony and a bath with tile shower. This was our personal home for the first year we lived in Maggie Valley and we just love it! We recently completed a large deck on the forest side of our home which is like a tree house with hot tub, the same great view as the house, plus a table and chairs for outdoor dining. There is a fire pit for a nice outdoor fire while you relax in the hot tub! Or just sit out and soak in the warm southern sun from an uncovered part of the deck. Take a hike through the woods if you're in the mood, or enjoy the gameroom on the lower level with pool table, stereo, piano, tv, and other games. There is a small flat screen tv downstairs and a larger one upstairs--both are hooked to satellite tv for your enjoyment. Also downstairs is another sleeping area with queen bed plus full bath.There is a utility room with washer/dryer and a daybed which could possible accommodate one or two additional children, but we think that would be a bit too crowded! There is a one car garage as well, with a ping pong table. High speed internet via dsl is available, plus cell coverage is good. There are no visible neighbors and you will feel like king/queen of the mountain. The road to our house is gravel, somewhat steep, but wide and generally in good condition. Access in winter may require 4WD and/or chains during heavy snow or ice. PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A NON-SMOKING PROPERTY AND UNSUITABLE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN DUE TO IT'S 4000 FT. MOUNTAINSIDE LOCATION. IT IS AN IDEAL ROMANTIC MOUNTAIN RETREAT FOR A COUPLE, ALTHOUGH THE QUEEN BED IN THE GAMEROOM WILL ACCOMMODATE 2 ADDITIONAL PEOPLE, AS WILL THE DAY BED (2 SINGLES) IN THE UTILITY ROOM.
. Also note that if this cabin is booked we have another great property at Lake Junaluska (3562775) only a few miles away which has easier access and is a bit larger.

Do yourself a favor and visit the Western North Carolina mountains--we promise that you'll be glad you came (and probably won't want to leave!


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: Carroll and Jim have worked in healthcare as RNs for many years. Carroll is a master gardner and takes care of the house decor as well as the flowers in the yard. Jim has a nutritional consulting business and is presently writing his first novel. We are originally from Louisiana and Texas respectively and met on the west coast in Washington state. We enjoy traveling, photography, and outdoor activities, which is what attracted us to Western North Carolina. We love the 4 seasons here and enjoy the coolness of the summers! Our two rental properties take up a good bit of our time (see our Lake Junaluska property #3562775) as we personally care for each one. All our guests are special to us and we hope to make each person's time here very special and as enjoyable as it possibly can be.

                          Why the Owner Chose Maggie Valley:
                          We wanted a home at a high enough elevation so that we could enjoy fresh air in the summer without air conditioning. Having been raised in the southwest, we fled from the heat, and now enjoy the pristine mountain air, water, and natural beauty! WNC is perfect for our likes--lots of outdoor activities, no big city congestion, yet all we need within a 35 mile radius. Asheville is great for bigger city sort of things--airport, major shopping, Whole Foods Market, etc., but we find Waynesville to be a great little mountain town that gives us a feeling of community and belonging. There is very little that we need that isn't available to us there.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          The Alpine House renews your spirit--you feel like you're looking down on the world from your mountain perch! The woods around the home are home to all sorts of wildlife (you might even see an occasional black bear!) and provide a peaceful setting to complement the great views. We like privacy, and this cabin certainly offers that--you will feel like you are the only person on the mountain once you arrive here. We have added as many conveniences as we can to make your stay enjoyable--from the hot tub overlooking the valley, to the high speed internet just to remind you that there is another world out there somewhere! You can watch your favorite TV shows, sporting events, and even play a game of billiards or ping pong if you like. Nature is ever present here and you may choose from a variety of outdoor activities to suit your mood and interests. If you're into gambling or big city events they are a short drive in either direction (east or west) from our home. There is just something about a log cabin in the mountains that will speak to your spirit and invite you to return again and again whenever you need a break from the everyday stresses of your regular existence. We know you will leave here refreshed and glad you visited Das Alpine Haus!
