Wow!!! Come and see why we have been booked every single weekend this past skiing season!!!

We do not stop improving. And we are listening to you!!! New for this season- a new foosball table so that the kids can stay entertained. We just added more movies to our collection and we keep adding cool decorating details. Come and see by yourself!!!

Come enjoy this mountain paradise! Just off Fie Top!!! Extremely easy access through paved roads!!! You are not on a busy road, you are not in a subdivision- you are in a quiet mountain paradise!!! Being renters ourselves, we wanted to be as close to the top of the mountain as possible and have all the modern amenities combined with the rustic charm of a log home. We found it in this house!!!

The house has never been rented before and after renting in the area for 4 years we tried to get you everything you need in our mountain paradise so that you feel right at home.

Of course, we could not forget the hot tub- brand new luxurious hot tub overlooking the mountain.

We have a game room with 5 games game table- air hockey, basketball, archery, tennis and football.

You do not have to worry about anything- we have soaps, detergents, paper products to get you started...

We even have a special surprise for all of our guests waiting for them in the cabin since we are so excited to be your hosts!!! Just give us a call and come enjoy this mountain retreat!!!

About Veny Aleksandrov

We have been vacationing and skiing in Maggie Valley for 4 years now. We are very excited to be hosts and not only guests anymore.

Veny Aleksandrov purchased this house in 2013

Why Veny Aleksandrov chose Cataloochee Ranch

We immediately fell in love in this house. It had everything we needed- the charm of a log home combined with all the modern amenities that one needs when on vacation. The mountain view is breathtaking and you could fall asleep listening to the sound of the creek running through the property!!! We ski a lot and this house is only 1 mile away from the ski area- could not get much better than this!!!

What makes this house unique

Two flat screen TVs on two different levels- you can have your own and the kids can have theirs!!!

A game room with 5 games game table- tennis, air hockey, basketball, archery and football!!!

Beautiful mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely and warm cabin with plenty of room for our group of 10. We had a beautiful snowy backdrop and would love to visit the cabin again for another ski trip (only a 7 minute drive up to the Cataloochee ski resort) or during warmer months so we could enjoy grilling on the porch and hiking around the area.

Lovely house close to ski slopes

  • 5 of 5

The house is so well located near the ski area. It made for easy coming and going from the slopes. There was plenty of room to accommodate our two families who stayed there. We especially appreciated the hot tub with lovely view after a day skiing. Also spent a day in nearby Waynesville with a wonderful meal at the Sweet Onion restaurant. I would definitely recommend this cabin for anyone.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. The location is perfect! It has a great mountain view in a great town and it's a quick and easy drive to both Cherokee and Asheville! The owner is very responsive and they take great care of the cabin. I recommend anyone staying there.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our primary goal was tranquility, and we found it here! Sitting on the deck and listening to the nearby creek and birds was very soothing. The rooms were comfortable. The road to the cabin was fully paved, which not all area cabins can boast. This cabin's outdoor space is minimal, so if you have kids here in the warmer month's you won't be sending them outside much.
