About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6 with library in the master bedroom.

Serenity Ridge is a newly renovated and beautifully decorated cabin ideally located between Cherokee and Maggie Valley and only one mile to the Soco Gap entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, known as "America's Favorite Drive." Also, entrance to the Great Smoky National Park is just a short drive away. The entire area is surrounded by beautiful mountains, lakes, waterfalls, wildlife, hiking trails, white water rafting, horseback riding, golf courses, and gorgeous scenery -- just to mention a few..

This private setting is in Hornbuckle/Cranberry Falls only 7/10 mile off Soco Road (Route 19) between Maggie Valley and Cherokee. The well maintained roads allow you to ride ATV's off your backyard to gorgeous views and waterfalls located right here in this private mountain community. The mountain views are great from the master bedroom, library, dining and great room.

This is a very clean non-smoking cabin with hardwood floors, eat-in kitchen, brand new fireplace, sleeper sofa in the living room, and new carpeting in both bedrooms. The master bedroom (queen bed) has its own bathroom and a nice sitting area/library. The second bedroom has two twin beds and an adjacent bathroom. You can barbecue off the back deck or just sit and relax in the two new indoor/outdoor rocking chairs. There is a fully equipped kitchen and convenient washer and dryer. All the rooms except the dining ( has curtains for privacy but you can open to experience the beautiful views) have wood blinds for added privacy. There are two brand new flat screen LCD television sets as well as a DVD player and a satellite dish with over 150 channels. We have provided many movies (DVD) for your enjoyment. We have just added a landline phone for your convenience.

Serenity Ridge is high in the mountains with an elevation of approximately 5,000 feet above sea level -- making it very cool with great breezes. There are ceiling fans throughout the house. Heating is provided by a brand new fireplace in the great room that warms the entire house in a matter of minutes, plus two new portable heaters when a smaller amount of heat is desired or in select areas.

There are peach trees and plum trees on the property as well as blueberry bushes. We just added a new crab apple tree and hope to have apples in the fall. The new fire pit in the backyard is for extra outdoor fun!

Serenity Ridge truly provides a relaxing experience away from it all but close to town and other attractions. There are many wonderful golf courses nearby, including the famous par 72 Sequoyah National Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. with spectacular views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, in nearby Cherokee. There are several other courses in Maggie Valley and nearby Waynesville.

LOCATION...LOCATION...LOCATION. Serenity Ridge itself is very inviting, but it is the special location in proximity to all the amenities that this area has to offer to visitors that sets it apart. The cabin is a one-mile drive to the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Haywood County expansion, with its extraordinary high elevations, offers motorists breathtaking views of seemingly endless mountain ridges and picturesque vistas, as well as hiking trails. Don't be surprised to see bears, elk, wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife as you drive on the Parkway. A list of recommended hiking trails and viewpoints will be available in the Information Book at the cabin.

The entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just a short drive from Serenity Ridge. Visit A beautiful drive through the park will end at popular Gatlinburg.

Pigeon Forge is adjacent to Gatlinburg, where Dollywood is located, as well as many other entertaining and shopping venues.

Maggie Valley boasts a rich mountain history and has everything you need, including unique shops and restaurants, parks, golf course, Cataloochee with skiing and horseback riding, Ghost Town, festival grounds, dancing, mini-golf, and elk viewing -- just to mention a few.

Cherokee is just 15 minutes away with fine restaurants, museums, Indian reservation, waterfalls, and many sources of entertainment, including the famous Harrah's Cherokee Casino. Be sure to check their website to acquaint yourself with the many restaurants, theaters, etc. as well as gambling in a convenient and beautiful atmosphere.

Downtown Waynesville (just a few miles east of Maggie Valley) is a vibrant town with fine shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants, tree-lined brick sidewalks, and many popular events.

Asheville is a little further east of Waynesville and has the closest airport. It is a large town with a lot to offer.

Our family has enjoyed visiting the Biltmore (an 8,000 acre estate in Asheville with beautiful gardens and very nice restaurants). Plan on spending several hours, and the headsets for a self-guided tour are a must. Tickets can be purchased through AAA, or call the Biltmore at 800-411-3812 for information on special fares.

Brochures and maps are available in the cabin to acquaint you with some of the extraordinary opportunities to enjoy this unique area of Western North Carolina.

SERENITY RIDGE has it all -- great views, ideal location, comfort and style -- at an affordable price. We hope you come and stay with us.

Maggie Valley Vacation - Fall 2009

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's eleventh visit to Maggie Valley, NC. Our family of four, typically spends two to three nights in Maggie Valley in the latter half of October. Our youngest daughter competes in a clogging competition at the Stompin Grounds in downtown Maggie Valley so we try to make a family trip out of the event.

We've found mid-to-late October to be the best time to observe the Fall colors and especially enjoy the way the town decorates for the season.

This was our first time staying at the mountain cabin and I would highly recommend it to others. The cabin is located several miles west of downtown Maggie Valley and about a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The road leading to the cabin is unpaved and somewhat steep but easily drivable. The setting is very tranquil and relaxing. We found the cabin to be clean both inside and out and just as described online. It easily sleeps six and the beds, including the sleeper sofa, were comfortable. There were plenty of blankets if needed. The gas heater kept the cabin comfortable throughout the night. The appliances were like new and in working order and there were plenty of plates, glasses and silverware for six persons.

Cell phone reception was suprisingly good given the location. The two LED TVs and wide selection of DVDs kept the kids entertained at night. The kids spent an afternoon at the Ghost Town in the Sky amusement park and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We all enjoyed strolling through the myriad of shops in the downtown area.

All in all, this was our most enjoyable vacation in the Maggie Valley area. This cabin is the perfect combination of mountain solitude and easy access to downtown Maggie Valley and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Owner's Response: Your review really means a lot to us since you have stayed in Maggie Valley so many times. I am so glad you and your family had a great time! You left the cabin very clean and were very generous with the cleaning lady. I hope you will come again to Serenity Ridge. We would love to see your daughter in the clogging competition!

Choosing to stay at this amazing cabin was one of our best decisions of the year. We had never stayed in a cabin and were not quite sure what to expect, but the expectations we did have were far exceeded by what we experienced. The cabin is even more beautiful in person than in the picturese. When we walked in after a very long drive, we truly felt like we were home. It was very very clean and organized and all we had to do was choose our rooms and unpack. Our kids loved the room where they played board games (we brought our own, but the cabin has some, too), and we all loved the living room, kitchen, and outside deck. The view was absolutely breathtaking. The cabin is very well maintained and comfortably furnished, making our visit very enjoyable.The drive up from the main street gate to the cabin was kind of scary at first because we aren't used to hills and curvy roads, but we drove slowly and got used to it fairly quickly. The drive to nearby towns is about 10-15 minutes (probably faster once you're used to driving there), so we tried to get everything we needed while we were out because no one wanted to drive back out, mostly because the cabin is so cozy. I could have stayed there easily another week and just relaxed. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of day to life, unplug and enjoy the beauty of mountains this cabin is a great place to start. We highly recommend staying in this beautiful cabin. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Our visit to Maggie Valley was made so much better with a stay here. There is nothing you are left to need. If you're a cook, all the utensils are there, a fire pit, wonderful views, a spotless cabin, and quiet area with a nice breeze. Simply put, GO!

Wonderful weekend in the NC mountains

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location in the NC mountains. It is very close to access the Blue Ridge parkway near Maggie Valley. It is also close to Waynesville which is a quaint town that we really enjoyed exploring. Frog's Leap Public House is excellent. Although the house is just a few minutes drive off the highway, it is like you are in a different world. It is so quiet and there is a spectacular view of the mountains. We really enjoyed sitting on the back deck with a glass of wine and watching the beautiful sunsets. The owner is also wonderful to work with- very responsive and nice.
