About Gideon Knapp

Sherri and I [ Gideon ] have been married for 50 years. We have 5 children and 6 grandchildren.I am a retired carpenter and enjoy skiing,, surfing ,and astronomy. Sherri is a homemaker and an accomplised ventriloquist. We split our time between Maine, NC, and coastal North Carolina..

We are both commited Christians and spent several years in the mission field.

Gideon Knapp purchased this house in 2007

Why Gideon Knapp chose Smoky Mountains

We chose Maggie Valley because of its driving distance to our winter home in NC. . Its mild winters and cool summers were attractions.

We picked this home because of its quiet location at the end of a dead end road ; we have grand children and wanted a safe location for them to play outside. The year round access was an important considereration as I enjoy skiing . The location of the home in proximity to both skiing , the Blue Ridge Pky and National Park were important to us. Also being in town and having access was a plus [ no 20 minute drives down mountain roads for a quart of milk !

I enjoy hiking , and there is an abundance of great trails in the area. Mall shopping and movies etc. are a very short drive to Waynesville. Maggie Valley itself has lots of restaurants and things to do for the family.

What makes this house unique

The home itself is nicely decorated with antiques and nice furry animals . It has a homey feeling , not that ' generic rental unit ' feeling that many rentals have.

It has a very large quite level yard for the children to play in . The large screened in porch is great for relaxing outside and enjoying the view.

Probably the most unique feature is that there is parking for up to five cars . There is a nice pond down the private road that has a nesting pair of swans in season. A fishing stream runs along the subdivision border as well.

Large house with a great view near Cataloochee Ski Resort

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for all of our needs! Very close to Cataloochee Ski Resort and restaurants. Open and spacious with a gas grill and fantastic screened in porch overlooking a pond. I can only imagine the view in the fall. Home owner is very helpful with any needs that might arise.

We had a wonderful time staying in this home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here during our weekend of snowboarding. It is located in an easy to get to location and was decorated wonderfully with lots of holiday cheer. Each room had comfortable furniture with a wonderful rustic flare. We only stayed a weekend but would have loved to stay longer. I would recommend this home for anyone wanting to stay in Maggie Valley.

Wonderful Christmas in our home town

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about getting to visit the Knapp home during Christmas. We are from Maggie and now live in TN. We looked & looked for the perfect place to come home for Christmas. The Knapp home was the perfect place. The home is absolutely beautiful. It was clean and decorated in great taste (in every room) for the Christmas season, including the critters in the tree by the stairs and the nice fire place. Thank you Mr and Mrs Knapp for your love of Christ and Christmas. We had everything we needed to walk in and feel right at home. The kitchen is awesome with kitchenware that allowed us to fix our dishes for our family gatherings. The Knapp's had even left us a little welcome basket and the home is setup for most any need. There is plenty of room for adults and children to enjoy. I would recommend this rental to anyone no matter what the reason for the visit or season. If you're coming to Maggie Valley, this is the place to stay. We are hoping to rent the Knapp home again in the near future. And when we come home again for Christmas; the Knapp home will be our first choice. Thank you both again for a wonderful place to stay for Christmas.
