Why Gideon Knapp chose Maggie Valley
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.
