About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)
This spectacular, 3,000 square foot, custom-built home with breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains, is 30 miles southwest of Asheville, North Carolina at an elevation of 4000 feet, in a secluded but easily accessible area with nearby streams and hiking trails. You will enjoy fabulous mountain views from every room, as well as when you are relaxing in the spacious hot tub, barbecuing and dining on the deck or sipping a cold drink while watching the colorful hummingbirds and songbirds.
You will be located only minutes away from many popular attractions such as the palatial Biltmore House and Gardens, Maggie Valley, Cherokee Indian Reservation & Casino, Blue Ridge Parkway, numerous championship golf courses, horseback riding, exciting white water rafting, llama trekking, snow skiing on Cataloochee Mountain, Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Railroad, gem mining and delightful craft and antique shopping and dining in Asheville, Waynesville and Dillsboro.
Both the gourmet and novice cook will appreciate the inviting kitchen with abundant wood cabinets, beautiful granite counters, convection oven, side by side refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, cookbooks and spice collection. Besides relaxing in the large, comfortable living room with a 100+ channel HD TV w/premium channels, wood burning fireplace, VCR and CD player, you may retreat to the loft to enjoy a good book from our lending library or write a letter or send a fax from the office. For folks that are Internet junkies, there is even high speed Internet access via cable modem for your laptop computer.
If you are especially fortunate to reside in the master suite, you will love the stone fireplace, flat-screen TV, panoramic mountain scenery, walk-in closet and easy access to the deck and hot tub adjoining the bedroom. The huge master bathroom boasts heated marble flooring, a large Jacuzzi bath, two sinks, separate shower and vanity area. Linens, drapes and wallpapers throughout the home are coordinated in the latest Laura Ashley and Waverly designer prints.
ACCESSIBILITY: Even though the house is three levels, you drive up to the house on the main level and there are no steps, you simply get out of your car, which is on a cement drive with a covered carport and walk into the house. The main level has the living area, kitchen, master bedroom and access to all the decking.
QUOTATIONS & BOOKINGS: In order for the owner to provide an accurate quotation, the following information is needed from the renter. The arrival and departure dates; the number of people in your party, including any guests, children or infants; the approximate age of all guests; if you would like to use the outdoor hot tub; an indication that you have reviewed our rental agreement and agree to its terms; a description of what you plan to do while you are in the area; if you qualify for any of our "specials".
Once the renter has provided the necessary information, the owner has provided a quotation and the renter has expressed an interest in renting, the owner will send a rental agreement via email. The renter will print and complete the agreement and send it to the owner, along with the appropriate deposit or payment, in the form of a check. See the section titled DEPOSITS & PAYMENTS. The renter has two days to confirm their intentions via email. If the renter indicates they will be sending the required payment, the reservation is held for seven days, allowing enough time for the rental agreement and deposit to be sent by mail. If the rental agreement and deposit are not received within the allotted seven days, the reservation is subject to cancellation.
-$100 discount on a one-week rental, to any returning guest as a way of saying thank you for coming back.
-$100 discount for reservations longer than one week
-$100 referral bonus to any former guest who refers a new guest. The new guest must say who referred them at the initial inquiry and the referral bonus is paid to the referring guest when the deposit is refunded to the new guest.
DEPOSITS & PAYMENTS: A $500 security/damage deposit is required to make a (one week) booking and will be returned within thirty days of departure, provided the home is left in its original excellent condition. Please note that for bookings longer than one week, a 50% deposit is required. The remaining balance, including all extra charges, the security deposit, taxes and fees is required one month prior to arrival. If a booking is made within the 45 days prior to arrival, the entire amount, including the deposit is due.
CANCELLATION POLICY - If a cancellation occurs during the time the owner has received the deposit, but prior to receiving the rental payment, the deposit will be forfeited, unless a new booking is secured and a successful rental is obtained. If a cancellation occurs after the owner has received the deposit and the rental payment, the entire rental amount is forfeited, unless a new booking is secured and a successful rental is obtained; however, the deposit will be refunded regardless.
The renter is encouraged to avail themselves of the various types of insurance that are offered through VRBO. See the section titled “Get protected now”.

During our high season (late May - early November), our rentals have a one week minimum and run on a Saturday to Saturday schedule. The weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years also have a one week minimum, but we are flexible on when the week begins. However, if you see that the time you are interested in is only a few days away and is currently available, we may make an exception.
Our cleaning fee is based on the actual charge from the cleaning service. This is done to encourage renters to leave the house as clean as possible and to have the charge reflect the actual work required. The minimum cleaning fee is $100. Any additional charge will be reflected in the deposit refund. If the downstairs is used, there will always be an additional charge over the $100 minimum.
The outdoor spa is not operational from December through April, due to potential extreme weather conditions and the possibility of freezing. We learned that lesson the hard way, to the tune of over $3,000!
The wood-burning fireplace is only available from October - March. There is an additional fee of $50, which reflects the cost of firewood and cleaning of the fireplace.
Please note that for bookings longer than one week, a 50% deposit is required. The remaining balance, including all extra charges, the security deposit, taxes and fees is required one month prior to arrival. If a booking is made within the 45 days prior to arrival, the entire amount, including the deposit is due. Renters are encouraged to purchase cancellation insurance, which can be found in the Vacation Protection section.
The owner's rental agreement will override any other written or implied terms.
Owner's cancellation policy:
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: We purchased the land in the mid 70's and decided to build in 1998 and use it for vacationing and possible retirement. It was a labor of love and now we are enjoying it as much as we can.
Why the Owner Chose Walker-In-the-Hills (Waynesville, NC, USA):
We have several good friends who come to the area regularly and some who live here full time now.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's easy to say, but not so easy to find; great view and easy access. Only 1.5 miles off the main road and paved all the way. You drive into a covered area and in three steps you ate standing at the door. Most people marvel at the quality of construction and attention to detail. Please visit the owner's website for lot's more information and photos.
