About Norma Rea, Owner

My family and I have been visiting western NC for over 20 years.. I finally decided that this would be the best place I knew, for a vacation home for my family, friends and to share with others.

I've been in the real estate business for over 20 years.. I've owned many rental properties and Love to share my home with others.

Norma Rea, Owner purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Norma Rea, Owner chose Maggie Valley

I wanted something centrally located to all that western NC had to offer. I also like my privacy. This home fit the bill! I can't tell you how much we enjoy spending time on the porch swing, either catching up with friends or just reading a good book while listening to the babbling creek.

The floor plan of the home also allowed my family and my visitors to enjoy their own privacy within. Each floor has it's own bedroom, full bath and bonus or sitting room.

What makes this cabin unique

Our home will comfortably sleep up to eleven people. Three of the bedrooms (two of which are en-suite) are fitted with king beds while the bonus room has a pull out double sofa bed. In addition, there is a bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a single up top. All beds have premium mattresses, upgraded bedding and we've added additional memory foam toppers for extra comfort. If you prefer a firmer mattress, the toppers can be easily removed.

The home also has three and a half baths, family room with fireplace and cathedral ceilings, fully outfitted kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, dining room, loft with full bar, television, pop corn machine and washer and dryer. The downstairs bonus room is equipped with television, WII games, board games, Foosball table or a quiet place for a read.

The two sided, wrap around porch offers a swing, rocking chairs, Weber grill and picnic table.The downstairs porch offers additional seating and a Jacuzzi tub and fire pit.

The home has also been equipped with a key-less entry system. No more searching for real estate offices to find and/or return a key. Of course, Wi-Fi and cable with premium channels is provided.

You can easily park three cars at the top of the driveway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the home in Maggie Valley! It had everything you could possibly want. Awesome for the kids(and big kids) was a popcorn machine, with popcorn included! My grandson couldn't stay away from it.

We were 3 families and having the different levels was perfect for people getting up at different times. Having your own space and own bathrooms was a must for us. It is beautifully decorated yet, serene and peaceful.

The front porch was a great hangout and especially with the early morning sun and coffee. We had little grands , 3 and 19 months and it contained them. Just perfect!

The hot tub was so pleasant and nice after a day of serious hiking.

We enjoy cooking and the kitchen had everything that we wanted.

The golfers enjoyed the Country Club course and being so close to it.

We own 2 vrbo's on Lake Murray in SC, so understand what is important to renters.

Norma, the owner, was great and so pleasant in our dealings with her.

I highly recommend this house for vacations.

The perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and peaceful. This home is cozy yet elegant, well laid out and well maintained. The home is nestled into a beautiful resort community in Maggie Valley. It's centrally located to restaurants, shopping, hiking, skiing, apple picking, sight seeing, Golf, tennis, etc. Everywhere we looked were the amazing colors of the changing leaves, and the home itself feels like a hug. Its exactly what our family needed and was hoping for when we booked it. It exceeded all expectations, and we will definitely be back! I highly recommend this home for anyone looking for the perfect mountain retreat.

Owner's Response: Oh my gosh! What sweet words... I just love your description that "it feels like a hug". My family will be able to visit ourselves in a few weeks.. It may sound braggadocio but I too, feel like I've been hugged after I leave. Thank you for taking the time to share your kind words and we do hope you'll come linger a little longer soon..

Perfect cabin for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was WONDERFUL! Perfect cabin for our family. My parents, our family of four, and my brother and his family of five were all comfortable. This troop included almost all boys (only excluding the moms), three of whom have grown into giants! Everyone had plenty of space.

The kitchen was amazingly stocked with everything we needed, the table fit the family, the hot tub was relaxing, the beds comfortable, the cabin clean and decorated very nicely, the location was beautiful and felt just secluded enough, but easy to get to and close to conveniences.

It was a blessing to spend our Christmas in such a lovely home! Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Absolutely beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has a gourmet kitchen with all of the pots, pans, utensils and spices a family would need. The oversized dining table was perfect for family meals and even better for games. Perfect location to skiing, puzzle room, the Biltmore Estate and our favorite, downtown Waynesville. The owner is just a phone call away. She takes care of any issues quickly and shares great info on the local restraurants and things to do. The internet works extremely well if you need to do any work while vacationing at the cabin.

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a week long stay at Linger Longer with our children, their spouses and our grandchildren. The home was perfect for our needs and size of family. The beds were comfortable. We especially enjoyed the well furnished kitchen with every pan and utensil we needed. Also appreciated the dining table which accommodated all eight of us comfortably. We loved our morning coffee on the porch. We have stayed in several vacation homes but this was definitely one of the best!

PROS: Well-equipped kitchen with quality appliances, comfortable LR furnishings, large bedrooms with comfy bedding, relaxing porches with rockers, loft game room, ceiling fans for circulation, clean and bug-free, some paper products included, quick response to inquiries.

CONS: Poor lighting throughout the cabin, steep steps within the cabin, steep driveway and parking for only 3 vehicles. Gas fireplace would not stay lit. Too many added fees.

Living, dining, kitchen area not as big as it appears in photos.

Owner's Response: I'm thrilled that you felt comfortable with giving us 5 stars but I did want to address a couple of your issues.. I must admit, the lighting issue you mention along with the photos are the first time that anyone has mentioned this to me.. With having over a thousand guests through my home, I'm surprised that this hasn't been brought to my attention sooner. But we will certainly see how we can improve. The steps within the house are built to code.. They are truly no steeper than any other home that has multiple floors. I know that one of your guests did have a few mobility issues.. I do have another home where the bedrooms and common areas are all on the same floor. Maybe that would be a better option for you next time? My main residence is in Florida, so you are correct, the driveway is a little steep in comparison to that.. Unfortunately, it's a common issue when visiting the mountains. I did send maintenance over to check on the fireplace and they report it is working correctly. As mentioned, it does have a thermostat so it will turn off automatically once the room has reached a certain temperature. As far as the fees, I must agree that it is much different than certainly booking a hotel room. This is also a common complaint within the online booking services. But you will find that my home is no different than others. The only ones I have control over is the nightly rental and the cleaning fee. Since I charge the same cleaning fee for a two night stay or a two month stay, I can't really build it into the nightly fee without penalizing longer stays. As far as the rest of the fees, that argument has to rest with the governments who want their taxes and the booking web sites. You could certainly reach out to them for further assistance. Again, I am pleased to hear that you found that we did do a few things right. Thank you for sharing that too.. Wishing you a fabulous holiday season and safe travels to wherever you venture next.

Perfect attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

I have been spending time at this particular cabin year after year since the first time I went in 2013. The reasons I keep coming back are many.... the location, the trees, the privacy, the nature, the beautiful light streaming through the large windows, the comfortable couches, and the feeling of home away from home each time I visit. But this time i realized something which I obviously started to take for granted: the details.

After spending a couple of days at this house, (due to our own scheduling reasons) we had to move to another cabin for one night. It’s only when there, that we noticed the details which we came to expect at Linger Linger and which apparently are non-existent elsewhere. Our one night away, we missed the plush robes in the closet, the soft quality sheets on the beds, the foam toppers and cozy comforters....the kitchen stocked with every pot and utensil ... the jacuzzi, the working fireplace, the nice shampoo and conditioner in every bathroom, even the soft toilet paper...

Unlike our new rental (to which we are never coming back) Linger Longer simply has all the amenities I would have if I were to have my own “vacation home.” We are definitely coming back and this time with a whole new appreciation.
