About Jean Covington
Contentment Place is our mountain getaway for refreshing ourselves in the mountain air when we need it. It's so wonderful, we find that we need it quite often!
Jean Covington purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Jean Covington chose Ivy Hill
My family travelled to this part of the NC mountains when I was a child. My father was the son of a saw filer who travelled from one logging camp to another. I remember my Dad pointing out to us all the places he had lived in and loved as a young boy growing up. When my husband and I had our son, we also introduced him to the mountains of NC - as well as the mountains in other states and other countries, but we love the convenience and beauty of the NC mountains! Whenever my son was ever asked his choice of exotic vacations, he'd usually say, 'Let's go to the mountains!' This log cabin in Maggie Valley seemed like the perfect place for us to make our home away from home!
What makes this Cabin unique
This property speaks to us. It is comfortable and charming, yet convenient and close to everything! We have our peaceful mountain views from our front porch and the bold sounds and sights of rushing creeks nearby when that's what we crave. Nestled by the fire or out and about, our Contentment Place is truly that - contenting!

Cozy & Warm
Thank you so much for allowing my husband and I to stay in your home for our anniversary weekend. It was so beautiful, clean, and just overall homey feeling. We came with our own stuff being prepared for anything, but this home was fully stocked with almost everything you can imagine! I have already recommended this place to many friends and family. Such a gorgeous location and right around the corner from cataloochee ranch, where you can ride horses through the mountains. Once again, thank you so much! God bless!
I am very pleased that you enjoyed Contentment Place, and I hope you'll visit again soon! I might have to try those horse rides sometime myself!
Little piece of paradise
Lovely cabin with incredible views and a definate at home feeling. Very comfortable and great location. Would highly recommend to friends and family. Already had a friend inquire about it for their family to get away
This home was impeccably maintained, and cleverly decorated.
We very much felt at home, and were able to use this wonderful house as a home base from which we explored the many attractions nearby.
Excellent cabin and nicely furnished
We arrived late at night on our first day and everything was perfect. This cabin is nicely furnished and full of very nice linens and towels. We immediately felt at home. The kuds (16 & 19) skiied for the first time and we cannot say enough good things about the Cataloochee experience. We hope to stay here again. Thanks for sharing your home.
Quiet comfort and relaxation
This is our second time at this cabin. The owner is wonderful and always makes us feel very welcome. This cabin is super, super CLEAN and beyond COMFORTABLE. My husband and I feel very safe in this neighborhood as well. This cabin is very close to all Maggie Valley has to offer. We also ventured to Bryson City and Asheville from here. Very easy rides. The fireplace is wonderful and all the living room furniture is comfortable. Our kids LOVE the loft. We cannot say enough great things about this place. And we can’t wait to be back for time #3 in the spring.
I will be glad to have you back again!!
It was wonderful as always!
Very clean and welcoming!
