Have never stayed anywhere in the mountains with a more breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, warm, inviting, and well stocked with the necessary items as well as plenty of perks... the welcoming bottle of wine, for example! The breathtaking mountain views surpassed our expectations. Upon initially entering the house, I literally gasped with delight. Viewing the magnificent sunsets on the spacious wrap-around porch was a perfect way to end each of the 5 fun-filled days in the mountains we so adore. We were blessed with beautiful, sunny days our entire stay!

The property's location is just far enough off the main road to give guests a feeling of being away yet close enough to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Maggie Valley, Cherokee, and Waynesville to allow for fairly close access to outdoor entertainment, food venues, and shopping.

The only thing that made us feel we were ready to return home was that we missed our kitty terribly!

Peaceful with picture perfect views

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent fliers to the area and have rented several cabins . Thunderstruck Ridge has an absolutely beautiful view off the back porch. It is post card worthy.

The cabin is located close to everything , but peacefully secluded. Lissa is by far , the easiest owner to get in touch with if any questions should arise.

Thank you Scott and Lissa for sharing your wonderful cabin with us.

Amazing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed this perfect cabin that is situated in the heavens of western N.C.! The view is beautiful and unforgettable! The beds were cozy, and the cabin is a short drive to Cherokee and Asheville. We spent days meandering around both places, but we were all happy to return to the this perfectly appointed cabin at the end of the days. We made it a point to be home in time to capture the sunset each day! WOW!!! Is all I can say about the colors that lit up the sky at sunset!... Our favorite view ever in the mountains. We’ve stayed at VRBO rentals for the mountains to the coast, and this rental is just perfect. It was meticulously clean. The pictures do not do it justice, and we definitely will plan to come back. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with our family!

Lovely home with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

This lovely log cabin with it's amazing views over the Maggie Valley was the perfect location to view the solar eclipse with my sisters. The wrap around deck was our go to location for morning coffee and evening sunsets. The home was immaculate, spacious and very comfortable. Definitely would stay here again when I return to visit the Blue Ridge Mountains.

N.C.'s best views are right off that back porch

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great trip and absolutely adored the cabin. It was furnished beautifully and had all the comforts of home. We enjoyed cooking dinner each night together in the spacious kitchen and made sure to be home by sunset so we could watch the great show of colors put on by the Smokes. We traveled all around NC and even to TN. Thunderstruck was a great middle point for many adventures

Awestruck at Thunderstruck

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had the opportunity visit in the middle of August. Although not our first stay in the area, it was by far the best house we have ever rented. Everything about the house exceeded our expectations...beatifully kept, clean and full of amenities for an extended stay. And of course, the view that greets you after you enter the house an walk towards the back porch is phenomenal. Based on weather conditions, the view is ever changing and never gets old.

The cabin was also a great jumping off point for all the activities in the area. We spent alot of time in the National Park riding to Cligmans Dome, Cades Cove, Cataloochee Valley (where we saw our first Elk), and hiking some trails to gaze at the beautiful waterfalls. The kids also enjoyed Cherokee and Maggie Valley (mining for treasures at the gem shop). All in all, a wonderful time that we hope to have an opportunity to do again in the future.
