What makes this lodge unique

If you look at the above map, the house is located in the mountains approximately 3/4 mile south of the intersection of 276 and Soco Rd. (SR 19). This provides quick and easy access to either Downtown Maggie Valley or the town of Waynesville. There is also a very nice Convenience store located right at the entrance to the subdivision.

Spent a week at Alta Vista. Cabin was fantastic, with panaramic views of Maggie Valley and the Smokie mountains. Well stocked and in a gated community. Staying there gives you access to Laurel Ridge Country Club. Game room on bottom floor well suited for all ages and pin pong table in garage was a treat. Lots to do in the immediate area for all ages. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. David

Does not get better than this....

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful spacious vacation home in the perfect location. It is in a gorgeous neighborhood, although you can't see your neighbors- it is very private. There are spectacular views from every window, it is beautifully furnished (gorgeous lamps and lighting), lovely linens and great tvs. Also extremely clean. The location is great- super easy to get to Asheville or Smoky Mountain National Park-you have the best of both worlds. It has a wonderful kitchen, with all you will need to cook a full meal. The kids were extremely happy with the game room which included air hockey, a ping pong table and video games! The owner was great to work with as well. It is just such a comfortable home. The deck around the house is perfect- spent every morning there with coffee and every night out there with a glass of wine. We pinched ourselves every day. This is a luxurious home- look no further--book it if you can!

this beautiful home was exactly what we were looking for and exceeded our expectations. The view, the location, the amenities could not have been more perfect for our family vacation. We got lots of beautiful snow, shared plenty of meals in the beautiful kitchen and dining area. The kids had a blast, the rooms are perfect, and the home is just stunning!

You can't ask for more. Simply wonderful! I hope we can come back and stay in Alta Vista again.

Thank you for wonderful memories and great family time!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This place has exceeded our expectations. The minute we walked into the house we knew that we made excellent choice, it had everything we wanted and more. The house is very spacious with breathtaking views in every room. We spent 4nights and didn't want to leave! The owner was great with providing excellent support. We travel a lot and have visited a lot of places and definitely would recommend staying in this cabin. It's clean, bright, luxurious, comfortable, well located and well priced. It was worth every minute and every dime we spent in this beautiful home. Thank you for sharing your home with us and making a memorable experience for our family.
