About Shelda Muirhead

I have been in the vacation rental business for 20 years and LOVE what I do.

Some of the homes in Maggie Valley on VRBO are owned by me and my husband, and I manage others. I am so fortunate to live in these beautiful Smoky Mountains and I enjoy helping vacationers by sharing my knowledge of the area.

This is a nice house in a good location. The driveway may be difficult for some, but we managed fine with a jeep and RAV4. If you have kids that stay up late I don't recommend letting them stay in the upstairs bedroom. You won't sleep well because you can hear everything downstairs because there is just a layer of wood between the first and second floors. Also in the living area there was s constant sprinkling of wood dust falling from the ceiling and making a little pile on the arm of the couch. We would wipe it off and it was not that big a deal.

That being said, the house itself was ok, but the first three days we endured without Hvac (needed repair and it was one of the hottest weeks), and tv (satellite was down). We arrived late Saturday and these things were fixed when we returned home Tuesday night. We spent over an hour on the phone with directv troubleshooting and the problem required a technician to come out. After that we were ready to get a refund and find another place to stay. Shelda asked us to give her a chance so we hung in there and she did get things fixed.

Flash forward, we got our deposit back but no other reimbursement for the three days without air conditioning and tv. We contacted Shelda and her response was that she had already dispensed the funds to the homeowner for that month and there would be no discount---but, when we came back she would give us a free night. Needless to say we are not coming back and don't plan on using Shelda, nor recommending her rentals if that is how she does business.

Hope this helps you in planning your vacation.

Owner's Response: This log home sits on 10 acres of land and offers lots of privacy. Our tenants love the fact that it's high in elevation with cool mountain breezes. I wasn't aware of the air or TV problem until Monday and both were fixed on Tuesday. Our tenant agreement states that we do not offer refunds unless we cannot address the problem in a timely manner. However, for return customers we sometimes offer a complimentary night's stay as a courtesy for any inconvenience, as when an appliance or something else malfunctions.

My Home Away from Home.

  • 5 of 5

This property is out towards Cataloochee Valley, North Carolina. It's address says Waynesville, but it's actually more in Maggie Valley than Waynesville, off 276, exit 20 off I-40. The drive out to the house is fun, on curvy roads, and the driveway is a bit tricky, but we LOVE that it's way up and on 10 acres of land. We are about 20 minutes, give or take, from Maggie Valley, so to us, it's not too far out. Besides, we love to just hang out on the deck and cook at the house, because the VIEW is amazing!!! I've stayed here many many times now, and if the owners ever decided to sell it, I would try to buy it in a heart beat. It's really that perfect.

The kitchen is huge; lots of room for cooking with family and friends. The fire pit with hot tub make it a great place to just hang out and relax. We've heard the elk from the porch, and we've seen signs of bear there, too. It really is a place to get away from all the work/city/stresses of life.

Note: It really does sleep 10, but there are trundle beds, so for kids, you can add two more. Laundry facilities, dish washer, everything you need, except for paper products and soap. We usually bring in all our food, but you can head to Waynesville for groceries, or Maggie, but in Maggie it will cost you a bit more, and you won't find everything you may need. It is so close into the valley, you can beat the crowd and get a good spot to see the elk and hike.

Okay, so I have to say one thing negative. If you aren't in good shape, or have a hard time walking up hills, be aware that the walk from the driveway to the house can be a doozy, especially if you are bringing lots of things. My husband and I have no issues, but even for us, as avid hikers, we still are out of breath when done. We worked out that a cooler with wheels makes it easier.

I highly recommend this home to anyone. But please, take care of it, because I hope to own it one day. :)

Love the Smokies!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this home. We have been renting from Shelda for years and have stayed in many of her log homes. Each one has it's own special characteristics. If you want privacy, this one is for you! Love it up in those mountains! Shelda and her team make everything special for you!
