About Diannah Beauregard

The picture, although not one of me, is a photo that captures the light and beauty that emanate from the nature here. It was captured while driving home one day on Balsam Ridge Road, just before my house. I have lived here for 28 years and have slowly brought out the natural beauty that surrounds and protects this land. Many people who come can feel the healing vibe the nature creates.

I have lived my life as a visual artist and have made my career of it. Now I am channeling most of that creative energy into developing this property into the sanctuary it was intended.

Diannah Beauregard purchased this apartment in 1989

Mountain Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a fall weekend getaway. The apartment was perfect for us. The bedroom has a very comfortable king-size bed along with a nice chair and chest of drawers. There is ample closet space for a longer stay, which I wish we could have had. The living area has a nice TV and two love seats. There is a full kitchen with a small dining table and an enclosed porch with full-size washer and dryer.

Most importantly to me, the place is clean, very, very clean. Diannah is super nice and really wants you to have everything you need for a great stay. In addition to great towels, dishes, etc., she provided us with coffee to brew, fresh fruit, and homemade zucchini bread. She is truly a wonderful host.

The property sits in a beautiful mountain area and has a great deck for enjoying the outdoors and even a meal during nice weather. Waynesville is only about 10 miles away. Cullowhee, Asheville, and Cherokee are also easy drives. Access to the Blue Ridge Parkway is just a couple of miles away as well.

Amazingly magical!

  • 5 of 5

First let me say the hostess Diannah was the most accommodating owner I have ever had the pleasure to meet! The retreat itself was up on a mountain and so very relaxing and serene. I am a biker and was so surprised when the hostess told me to unload my bike and store it inside of her small barn. Wow! She actually had room inside the barn for three more bikes. I can't wait to get back and cruise Maggie Valley, Cherokee and beautiful Waynesville. This was one of my top three places I have ever visited as I have so many. It would be near impossible not to enjoy this wonderful place!

Owner's Response: It was as much a pleasure having guests like you and Lisa. It is always my goal to make sure guests have everything they need to enjoy a relaxing stay here at my place, so I am very happy to know that you enjoyed being here. And yes, the barn is a great place to be able to safely stow away the bikes when not in use. I keep my bike in the barn, even if it only has pedals and no engine! I look forward to your return! Wow, to be included in your top three favorites! I like that too! The feeling is mutual as I am blessed with so many wonderful guests that come to visit! Thank you!

Serene family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Diannah's place on our summer trip through NC. We chose her place at the last minute and she was gracious enough to work with us. The place is very serene and a perfect place for a couple or small family of three. Her place is modern yet simple, very clean, well stocked, and quaint. The only drawbacks where the cell service wasn't great and no A/C, but it was cool enough that we didn't need A/C, and the cell service wasn't needed as she had adequate wi-if. We will be back again and I'm looking forward to it. Thanks Diannah for treating us like family.

Owner's Response: I am confused why this guest rated my place a 4 when the drawbacks were not an issue because of my attention to insuring that cell service could be modified by my existing wi-fi and the air conditioning was accomplished by the sweet cool mountain air! I have consistent ratings of 5 throughout both my listings so I contacted this guest and she told me she did this in error but did nothing to correct her mistake. I take great care of this property and do my best to make sure everyone is happy. This guest failed to tell me that she was coming with a grown son and would need a separate sleeping arrangement! Last minute surprises are challenging but I dealt with even that as best as possible. She was also given a great discount since she was my first guest in this newly appointed and beautiful living space! I am sorry that Celia held me accountable for her selection of cell phone service. Verizon is the only one that really works here. I am also sorry that she couldn't take the time to change her rating from a four to a 5.
