About the property

Split-level Mountain Retreat, 4 Bdrm, 3 Full Bath, Parking On Both Levels

Come and relax in the Great Smoky Mountains and enjoy the wonderful view of the mountains from the spacious porch of your home!

The living room is fronted with a wall of windows overlooking three separate mountain ranges. The atmosphere is warm, comfortable and welcoming. Light a wood fire (wood provided) and curl up in plush leather chairs and the couch near the stone fireplace with a good book. Gather around the kitchen island for conversation and wine. Or, pull up a chair on the front porch with a steaming cup of coffee and gaze out over the mountains and valley.

Sleeping arrangements include a large master suite with a king bed and private master bath. There are two additional bedrooms furnished with queen beds, and the lower level has comfortable bunk-beds for the kids or an extra guest or two. Both the master suite and the downstairs have excellent mountain views and access to the deck. Three full baths.

You will find skiing, hiking, tubing, white water rafting, shopping, fishing, golfing, the Biltmore in Asheville and much more in the surrounding area. Historic downtown Waynesville has excellent restaurants and shops you won't want to miss. All of this only 15 minutes or less from your front door! A ten mile drive takes you to Cataloochee Valley to see the protected elk (you may see an elk wandering on the road going up the mountain to your home!), an easy 30 minutes to Asheville and all of its amenities, and only 45 minutes to historic Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge!

About Scott Williamson

Growing up in Florida, as a youth, I hiked these mountains and fell in love with their majesty and serenity. As I began contemplating retirement, it only took one trip back to tour the greater Asheville region to know that I'd found my destination. Until I do retire, I plan to spend every moment possible in these wonderful surroundings, but until it's permanent, I wanted to share it with as many other people as possible because I do believe the mountains are magical and have such a restorative impact on the soul. I hope you decide to spend some time in The Treehouse and I hope your experience proves me correct.

Scott Williamson purchased this house in 2013

Why Scott Williamson chose Waynesville

Once settled on the greater Asheville region, I began visiting all the neighboring towns because I wanted to be in the mountains, but with easy access to Asheville. After visiting the major towns in the vicinity, I chose Waynesville because of its location and its quaint thriving downtown. Then I enrolled with two different broker's sites which emailed me house listings meeting my specifications on a daily basis. Houses I liked I saved and at multiple times I had up to 30 houses in my saved folder. But as purchase time approached, we became very specific about what we wanted in a house, down to the elevation, the living/dining/kitchen great-room approach, nice master suite, fireplace, full baths, large garage, AMPLE deck, and of course, a stunning year-round southern exposure view. The property list dwindled significantly, and after visiting eight potentials, we came to this property and it quite simply met every requirement we desired. We have done some updating and plan some additional updates (cosmetic) to get an even more Treehousey feel to it, but any opportunity to look out the wall of glass overlooking the valley surrounded my those gorgeous mountains just reinforces that we made the right decision.

What makes this house unique

The great room makes up the living, dining, and kitchen areas so that entertaining is easy, all of which overlooks the beautiful mountain vista. The master suite is large with king size accommodations and separate master bath with custom walk-in shower. The two guest rooms accommodated with queen beds are ample and each has its own closet storage. Situated between the two is another full size bath. The downstairs is equipped with two sets of bunk beds (can sleep four kids or two adults/two kids - sorry, no adults on upper bunks!), a full size attached bath and a separate TV with DVD player in case the kids want to escape from the adults. Both the master suite and the downstairs loft have expansive mountain views and access to the deck on their respective levels. The split-level driveway makes access easy to each level of the house. There is a washer/dryer in the downstairs bath for your use and convenience. The kitchen is equipped with pots, pans, baking accessories, common spices, dishware and cutlery, and major kitchen appliances.

Great house with the most beautiful view of the mountains. The perfect place for our family trip.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the change in the mountains throughout the day. We made several trips to Asheville and really enjoyed Waynesville! We look forward to coming back!

Wow, what a view!

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply gorgeous. Four of us rented for a week in the Fall, and it couldn't have been more perfect. Plenty of room to spread out, had all the amenities one might need, and close enough to civilization (assuming you'd ever want to leave!) We will definitely be back.

You will love

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what I was looking for in a rental home. We had 2 kids, 2 parents, two grandparents, and one extra adult. The house is so cleverly laid out as to seem much larger than it is. The beds are so comfortable. We cooked dinner and breakfast at the house almost every day and spent our days hiking in the area. The view from the house is spectacular. Such a peaceful place to have a cup of coffee or glass of wine. We hope to stay here again!

Even better the second time

  • 5 of 5

The view is amazing. Springtime in this home was even better than the fall. All the supplies we needed were in the house. The weather was perfect. Plus, it is so easy to make reservations. Thank you for a great time and since we can bring the dog, it is the best choice.
