About Dawn LaRocque

I am the owner of a small local Art and Artisan shop in Lexington SC. I love finding and fixing up cycling furniture and items no longer usable and selling them in my shop. My husband owns a commercial construction business. We have totally remodeled the cabin since it was purchased it in 2008. We wanted a rustic hunting lodge look, and a place that made you just want to relax.

Dawn LaRocque purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Dawn LaRocque chose Smoky Mountains

Growing up in the rental business and owning my own rental business I have always dreamed of having a Bed & Breakfast and opening my home to folks to enjoy. This is as close as I could get to a bed and breakfast and still have my career. I love reading what our guests have posted in the guest book.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is between Maggie Valley and Waynesville. Not far from the ski lodge, and just around the corner to the Maggie Valley Country club. There is always something going on year round.

A pleasant stay

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was just the right size for our stay. The master bedroom being downstairs made it nice and quiet. The exterior of the house needs some serious work. Several of the porch rails are seeing pretty serious deterioration and wood rot. One rail is missing completely which poses a safety hazard for small children. The front gutter is detaching from the fascia board. The interior was very clean although you can tell it's been well used. It could use a bit of updating. All in all, it was a pleasant stay.

Quiet relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was roomy and comfortable. The beds were nice and soft. Could use an exterminator. I realize it is in a wooded area but I'm not fond of bugs and spiders. I was confused about the recycling. It mentioned blue recycle bags in several places but I found no garbage bags other than the ones in the can. I thought about taking my fur baby but glad I didn't. The information made it sound like she should be crated at all times. I don't want this to be totally negative. I did love the cabin and I would definitely try to stay again. It is in a nice area. We set the air on 76 but I don't think it kicked on. The house was nice and cool at all times.

Nice property, a lot of decorations and made it feel a little cluttered.

  • 3 of 5

There were a few issues. Many of the light bulbs were burned out. Washing machine was very loud.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mark for the review, We came up after your visit and corrected the lighting outage I only noticed 2 lights out. Never thought the house was cluttered just well staged. As for the loud washer I will have that looked at. I appreciate your input. Dawn LaRocque 6/14/2017 We had a Technician look at the washer. He said the washer was not broken just a loud washer. We just replaced it a year ago. Guest will need to consider washing clothes when not there

Convenient and Nice!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is close to town and is very nice inside and out. Great communication from the owner. When I return to Maggie Valley I hope this cabin is available to stay in again.

Perfect accomodations for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly suited for my husband, two sons, their wives and a dog. Every couple had own bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, wine glasses, pots and pans. We all had a great time and the location was perfect as one son lives in Chattanooga and the other in Charlotte. We will definitely look into renting this house again and if warmer weather bring our BMW motorcycle. Having garage to store the Beemer in at night is a huge plus. :)

Dawn - the owner - was very responsive to all my questions prior to arrival and during the stay. This was my first VRBO experience, but it was a very good one so will definitely consider again when making future travel plans.

Love the cabin!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just want to thank you Dawn for sharing! The communication was awesome, the cabin was clean and everything worked. We also loved the fact that you are pet friendly so the furry friends can enjoy it as well. The cabin is very easy to get to considering we were pulling enclosed bike trailers. Plenty of room to back up the trailer and unload the bikes. Best thing is there is an garage so pull the bikes in and out was a breeze. We spent 8 days and the weather was perfect. I would recommend to anyone looking to book this cabin to definitely do so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Once again, Dawn thanks for the great communication before and after our stay and we will recommend you to anyone that is looking for a cabin in that part of the woods!! LOL
