About Mark & Jean Heinze

We've lived in other scenic areas - Montana, California and Oregon. During a vacation to the western NC in 2013, we visited many towns and looked at many houses, but were drawn to the beauty of Waynesville and its proximity to a multitude of gorgeous vistas, hiking trails, waterfalls, Cataloochee valley with roaming elk, Catalochee Ski Hill, varied shopping and good restaurants. During this vacation, we were fortunate to discover a lovely and secluded Craftsman style home that is modern and stylish, yet also rustic. We enjoy sharing our home with others and hope you find peace and tranquility during your stay!

Mark & Jean Heinze purchased this house in 2013

Beautiful cabin, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing cabin. From the location, the amenities, the views - it is just great. We loved the two decks; Moxie loved the top deck. Super comfortable king bed, spacious master bath. The kitchen was well appointed.

We hope to stay here again.

Thanks Mark & Jean for sharing your place!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a week long family vacation this June and I would highly recommend it. If you want solitude, yet close to all the fun activities the area offers this is your place. The house is just as nice as the pictures if not better and comes with everything you need as far as kitchen, bath and household items. Owners and property manager were both readily accessible and quick to respond to any questions. You won't be disappointed.

wonderful accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The location was nice for us. Nice restaurants located in Waynesville and Maggie Valley. My husband went on day hikes with the dogs. I was in recovery mode for a knee replacement, so I stayed around the house and rested, did my exercises and read. Very pleasant surroundings.

Terrific Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Waynesville is a small mountain town with picturesque scenery, quaint shops and fabulous restaurants. We know this town because my husband's mom had a house on the mountain that we absolutely loved! We were last in Waynesville when our daughter was 5 and now she is a mother of one-year old twins - so we thought - let's go to Waynesville! After searching the HomeAway site - I was attracted to Jean and Mark's home because of the layout, the privacy and the views! The house is nicely furnished and we couldn't have asked for a better family escape! We took family walks around Lake Junaluska, day trips to Asheville and Hendersonville and mainly enjoying being together away from day to day hustle. Even our grandfur-pup enjoyed his visit. Thank you Mark and Jean for sharing your home - it's fabulous!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Despite the unseasonably cold weather, this house was nearly perfect for our family of 5. We had originally planned to spend nearly every waking hour of our stay out exploring the region, but the weather kept us in the house more often than not.

It's a beautiful house with a great view and it is very well-appointed and just plain comfortable. We loved the privacy of the lot...very peaceful. The location is outstanding, with easy access to I-40 if you're heading to Asheville or beyond, and it's within minutes of Maggie Valley, Waynesville, and access to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The house is also very close to the Cataloochee Valley, one of the hidden gems of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Mark and Jean were easy to work with and Heather, the property manager, took great care of us. This was our first ever vacation rental and we'll gladly do it again thanks to this experience!
