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 Ivy Hill

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.

I have looked around VRBO to see if there’s anything else that could better for us, but year after year We come right back to linger longer. It’s just a perfect location, perfect accommodations, never changing hospitality, which all make for a perfect stay in North Carolina. Thank you for making this happen for us Miss norma Rae !

                                                                        Awesome home

                                                                        Lorie C.Polk City

                                                                        We had a wonderful time here. The home has 3 King size beds which is great when you have 3 couples. The driveway could have been larger, we had 1 car 1 small SUV and a 2500 truck which made parking alittle tricky. Overall beautiful home

                                                                        Perfect cabin for our family!

                                                                        Kerre T.

                                                                        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!

                                                                        Beth B.

                                                                        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!

                                                                        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!

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        We do hope you'll come back again soon..

                                                                        All the best,

                                                                        Margo F.

                                                                        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.
