Elk Ridge Cabin, Unwind with Nature, Enjoy Amazing Views

Bedrooms 2
Space 875 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Come relax at Elk Ridge Cabin while enjoying an unobstructed view of Jonathan Creek Valley. Enjoy privacy and cool nights at 3400' elevation with easy access only 4 miles off I-40, and just minutes from Maggie Valley and Waynesville.

Updated, modern amenities with mountain charm!

Relax either indoors or outdoors while unwinding amid nature's beauty. Cozy mountain decor will make you feel right at home! Sleep like a baby in a king-size bed or wake up to the amazing valley view from the queen-size log post bed. You can choose to rock your cares away on covered or open sitting porches or relax in Adirondack chairs by the outdoor fireplace. Entertain on the multi-level decks with an outdoor gas grill and dining. Recent upgraded high-end flooring throughout adds to the well-maintained property.

Elk Ridge Cabin is close to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Cataloochee Valley, and frequently Elk and other wildlife are seen grazing in the pastures. Visiting the Historic Cataloochee Valley Pioneer Settlement is just a scenic drive up the mountain, so close that you are already halfway there! Enjoy walking through the private cove past waterfalls and clear, cool mountain streams.

Keep cool during the summer on even the hottest days with a multi-zone, high-efficiency A/C unit--with the availability to set each room to a desired temperature, everyone in your family will be happy! A gas-log fireplace will keep you cozy warm during Fall or Early Spring cold nights, or during a surprise snow!

Come enjoy the serenity of the mountains at Elk Ridge Cabin!

About Debbie & Dave

Dave, Debbie & Garrett. We always enjoyed coming to the mountains when we lived in Florida, needing our 'mountain fix' at least once a year. Now we live here year-round enjoying the change of seasons, unlimited outdoor activities, breathtaking nature and small-town friendliness. Maggie Valley is a great place for our family.. how about yours?

Debbie & Dave purchased this cabin in 2007

What makes this cabin unique

We self-manage the property and take great pride in providing that personal touch for our guests. We like to surprise them with a little 'southern hospitality' - fresh breakfast goodies, a canopy for your motorcycle or a unique memento for a special occasion.

*New offer 2018 Season- Why stress over what to plan for dinner your first night? You can have your meal prepared and waiting for you on your arrival, or cater a special dinner in or for special occasion. Inquire about Catered Meals by Shannon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

**from Guest comment card **

Thanks for making our 33rd anniversary so special! We had a wonderful long weekend, & it was so nice to see you guys again! In all of our 34-plus years together we have been many places & stayed in many cabins, rentals, and B&B's. For a couple of years, we did some property management on Hilton Head. Your cabin is totally the nicest one we have ever stayed in. Even some of the top-end condos on Hilton Head did not have the amenities and special touches (like treats for Jake) that you provide for your guests. Throw in the beautiful view, privacy and serenity-You just can't beat it!

Oh yeah, the very nice hosts are a plus too! Hope to see you again soon!

We spent two weeks at this great cabin. We spent most of our time on the front porch. The cabin was clean and had everything you could need for a great vacation.

Wonderful 2 week stay

  • 5 of 5

We've been fortunate to have travelled to many domestic & international locations and this was by far the most relaxing vacation ever. Debbie and Dave were great hosts with an attention to every imaginable detail to make the décor perfect and very homey and immaculately clean. We wouldn't hesitate to return to Elk Ridge Cabin and would recommend anyone who loves nature and beautiful scenery to consider this location. Tom & Karen, Homosassa FL
