A World Apart
About A World Apart
I've had a love for the Smokies throughout my life. Annual retreats to their splendor, beauty, and peace have been a part of my life since I was a small child. When I need a reprieve from the sometimes hectic 'normal' life that I head to the bosom of these old mountains. Just one breath of cool, crisp morning air seems to put everything back in its proper place. I hope you too can find a little of that mountain magic. --Brien, Charlotte, NC
A World Apart purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why A World Apart chose Maggie Valley
The name “A World Apart” came quite easily standing on the porch one early evening. After your visit I hope you’ll understand why... The land on which A World Apart sits has been in the family for a few decades. The cabin was started in 1985 and was literally built board by board by one person. It was a quiet retreat and went through numerous design changes and additions, but the interior was never completed (some would say it was never started). With its lack of insulation, few exposed frame walls, and roughed in plumbing and electrical, it was a fun place for getaways where no one could find you. In 2006, after many years of the cabin sitting desolate, I purchased the property. That set off a two year adventure of weekly drives to the property, more Lowes trips than I ever thought possible, and a frustrating and painstakingly slow yet rewarding process of reworking and completing the interior of the cabin and bringing it up to current building code. The majority of the work was done by my family including all the framing, electrical, heating and air, insulation, cabinetry, tile work, flooring and stairs (which was milled from red oak trees from my primary house), and too many other details to recall them all. It was a labor of love that nearly broke me in so many ways. We tried to pull from the best of the cabins we had visited around the Smokies and at the same time, add a little of our own flair and style. I am quite pleased with the result and have been rewarded by the many kind words and stories from guests.
What makes this Cabin unique
It’s all about location! The cabin sits just a few minutes West of Maggie Valley and Cataloochee Ski Resort. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs along the back side of the mountain. Even being so close to these amenities it feels as though you are on a quiet hiking trail in the middle of the Park. The 5.5 acres is surrounded on all sides by vacant properties so that there is literally no other sign of civilization within your view. The only sounds are the wind through the trees, the creek running through the hollow below, and nature living the way it was intended.

Love your cabin and your land
You truly have an amazing place with a breathtaking view.
My wife and I were celebrating our 33rd anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better place.
We loved watching the sun rise while laying in the hammock.

Home is really nice kids and family enjoyed it. Looking to come back.
The place was as advertise, well stocked, comfortable beds, great hot tube, well stocked kitchen. I suggest if you are going stay a few days maybe have some firewood delivered, those gas station bundles burn quick. We enjoyed our stay!
So much fun!!
This was the perfect spot for our trip! We will definitely be back.
