About Shelda

I have been in the vacation rental business for 20 years and LOVE what I do.

Some of the homes in Maggie Valley on VRBO are owned by me and my husband, and I manage others. I am so fortunate to live in these beautiful Smoky Mountains and I enjoy helping vacationers by sharing my knowledge of the area.

Why Shelda chose Smoky Mountains

My husband and I moved to Maggie Valley 20 years ago. He is a builder so it didn't take long for us to start searching for land to build our family home. We love the changes of the seasons. It is a site to behold.(not to mention the mountain views) I hope you will get a chance to visit here if you haven't already. There's no place like it!

What makes this cabin unique

We have added a playground. It is a huge flat area above the home on an acre of land. We have a swing, picnic table, bonfire area, sand box, and games for the kids. (badminton, and horse shoes)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at Shelda's and Scott's home in Maggie Valley. We've been coming for years and we always love to stay in their homes. Fox Loop is especially nice.

We love the quietness and the sound of the creek below. Seeing the elk in the yard is a real treat! You don't get that just anywhere in Maggie Valley. Thank you Shelda, for providing us with nice, clean homes each year. We love all the ones we've tried but especially this one.

What a great location and view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience renting Fox Loop. Kitchen was well-stocked. House was clean and prepared upon our arrival. There were plenty of extra sheets, towels, blankets, and pillows. Owner was quick to respond to inquiries. The porch was so relaxing. We saw 6-7 elk around the house at one time. All in all, a great week at a great house.

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

First night we arrived Elk came walking right by the windows! Cabin is very nice. Porch has beautiful views. We couldn't get cell service which wasn't a problem for us since we wanted it to be quiet so we could unwind! There is wifi.

Fox Loop is very comfortable. We loved the porch. We sat out there every day, rain or shine. My grandson was in the hot tub every night. We didn't see any elk in the yard but saw them every day coming and going out to state rt. 19. The house suited our needs and we had plenty of room. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, I'm delighted you enjoyed Fox Loop. I wish the elk had visited you! They love to eat my Hosta in the back area. You probably noticed. Anyway, I hope you can come again. We own all three of the homes up there and all of them offer different amenities. We look forward to your next visit. Regards, Shelda Muirhead

Fox Loop

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Fox Loop. My family and I rented Fox Loop for a week in May 2017 for our family vacation. My daughter and grandson flew in from Norway and I wanted him to experience our beautiful mountains in North Carolina. Normally when vacationing my husband and I went move around from Hotel to Hotel but having two small children with us, we thought it would be better to rent a cabin. Boy were we right!!!! We loved that Fox Loop was pretty much secluded. There are two other cabins near by, but during our stay they were empty. The deck offers a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains. We also saw Elk on the main access round leading up to the cabin. I get home sick after a few days, but for some reason Fox Loop felt like my home. I would highly recommend staying at Fox Loop and we will be staying there again. And did I mention how wonderful the soap smelled in the bathrooms? The soap in her cabin is from Hazelwood Soap Company in Waynesville. My mother and I visted their store and bought some of their wonderful products. Thank you for sharing your cabin with me and my family. We had a blast and made many new memories.
