About Shelda Muirhead

I have been in the vacation rental business for 20 years and LOVE what I do.

Some of the homes in Maggie Valley on VRBO are owned by me and my husband, and I manage others. I am so fortunate to live in these beautiful Smoky Mountains and I enjoy helping vacationers by sharing my knowledge of the area.

Why Shelda Muirhead chose Maggie Valley

I chose Maggie Valley and this home because of the awesome view! It's not hard to get to either! It is so peaceful. All you can hear from the deck is the creek below and the other sounds of nature.

What makes this cabin unique

It has a game room with pool. There's a hot tub on the view side of the home so you can relax while taking in the view. It also has an acre of

land behind the home with a picnic area, huge fire pit, horse shoe pit, sand box, swing, and large picnic table.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Shelda,

It was the best cabin/location we have stayed at since we started having

these vacations almost 20 years ago!

Thank you,

Wonderful house with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely had a blast! The house was perfect for our family trip! We had 3 family units with us on this trip and the house offered so much space. We each took a floor and there was plenty of room to spread out. Just wonderful. And.....the view....gorgeous!

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this property. Beautiful views and magical fire flies at night. Saw several elk right on the property. Hummingbird, squirrel, so many birds with nests, and chipmunks all from the deck. Loved waynesville and our last dinner was amazing at the Sweet Onion. So sad to be leaving. This property had everything one would need while being away from home.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Shelda and Katie thank you for a wonderful family vacation! The house was perfect and gave 3 generations plenty of space and then plenty of room to come together for family meals. I love it because it was ease of access for me and my husband to stay on the main floor. The central vacuum and laundry shoots are wonderful! We all enjoyed the chipmunks, hummingbirds, sunrises and sunsets. The elk? That's a different story! They were awesome and became backyard farm animals to us - even the doe with t new calfs. #s 99 and 162 were around the most. We spent 10 days in Cherokee and Waynesville or just relaxing on the deck. It was heaven and all the family agreed that they would love this house next year! Don't miss going to New Belgium brewery in Asheville! And of course the shops in Maggie can't be missed! The Gray Mare has the best fruit, veggies, pickled eggs, okra, garlic, and country ham! And don't forget to try the boiled peanuts!

Shelda and Katie were great to deal with and all of the others neighbors and workers so friendly as well.

Easy drive to the house and plenty of parking.

We loved the hom, the accommodations and the well stocked supplies!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home! We can't wait for next year!

The Cabin

  • 3 of 5

First let me say the Mountains was just breath taking. The home was just beautiful! It was so comfortable, for all the guest that was with me. I love the rooms, the view. But on the downside I was not to happy about the trash taking it somewhere, I do understand that it needed to be done the distance was quite far, am glad it was not raining the driveway was not all that great. Then at the end of the stay we had to check out @ 10am put towels in the washer. Didn't have a problem with that if check out was a little later, so everyone had time to shower and eat breakfast and enjoy that view one more time with coffee but instead early rise shower put towels in wash. I am a renter too so am sure you have your reason for things. Thank you on behave of us all so much for allowing us to stay in your home I hope we took good care of your beautiful home, we felt like we did. Thank you again.

Lesson learned

  • 1 of 5

Word to the wise:.immediately upon arriving, renters should walk through the house with their phone or video camera, documenting the condition of everything in the house. Then, last thing before your departure, do the same thing. I've been renting for years through VRBO and for the first time ever, part of my security deposit was withheld and I was blamed for damage I did not do. I will not do business with these owners again.

Maggie Valley at its best

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Blue Ridge side of the Appalachian mtn range and Maggie Valley with the previous two times in the Smokys and Pigeon Forge area. Glad we came! We came for the view, new places to seek out and the possibility to see some wild life near the cabin as described by the owner. We were not disappointed.

As others have said the view from the cabin was amazing and one of the qualities I look for when choosing a place to stay. From here we made day trips to Asheville, Waynesville, and Cherokee to explore each area where we found new places to explore, foods to experience and a sovereign nation. Within a short drive, like just up the road, we were able to drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway, enjoy the many the overlook areas and see the Soko Falls mentioned in the description.

As for the wildlife we didn't have to wait long. The morning after we arrived the kids left for a trip to Asheville but had to stop for several Elk who were making their way down the driveway Then a few days later a pair of female Elk and their two calves came right under the deck and made there way over to the fire pit spending a long time eating along the way. And the last day while leaving a whole herd came by, almost like saying good-bye.

This was a great choice for us and will return if ever in the area again. The cabin very comfy and plenty of room for our 3 families which included 6 adults, 2 teenagers and a small dog. We were able to enjoy the fire-pit just outside the cabin, pool table and play plenty of board games we brought with us on the large dinning table. They had other games including a ping pong table available but we didn't use them including or the grill outside. The homeowners were easy to work with and helpful in getting the hot tub up and working upon our arrival. The only problem we had was keeping a continuous wifi connection with our phones. There were times when you would have to go into the master bedroom where the router was to get a good connection. But, we were here for the beauty of the mountains! Thank you, Shelda, for a wonderful vacation!
