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 Maggie Valley

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!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a great place to come back to after a day of sightseeing in the smokies to sit on the private back deck or make dinner in the well equipped kitchen. You can take in the mountain view from the rockers on the front porch or just sit and talk. The comfy recliners in the loft are an ideal place to enjoy a good book. The bedrooms are quiet and comfortable for a good night's rest. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

From ocean to mountains

  • 5 of 5

When we had to cancel our outer banks trip due to mandatory evacuation we promised our grandkids we would do something else so we headed to smokies got on iPad and searched for rental in smokies mountain area. Wow we hit the jackpot with this rental. We got a quick response from jean that we could rent the cabin and that was a big relief after our first idea got cancelled. We got the kids some hiking boots at the only cabelas in North Carolina and enjoyed hiking and tubing in the mountains. The cabin was a dream come true we had breakfast there and came home and cooked our dinner in the evenings. The cabin had everything we needed and more. The cabin, mountains, waterfalls, bear, elk, and tubing will be memories we can share with our grandkids forever.
