Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of the Pinecone are very nice, but in person the cabin is even better. It is beautifully maintained and decorated. There are many small touches that make it warm and inviting. We look forward to our next visit!

Great Mini-Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our mini-vacation to Maggie Valley recently. The little cabin was perfect for the four of us. In addition to the pool table and the well-equipped kitchen, there were many unexpected and surprising extras with this cabin that none of us had ever gotten with previous rentals elsewhere. The chilled bottle of wine, homemade cookies and coffee got us off to a great start. But, those fairy lights... they were down-right magical!

wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The place was very welcoming when walking in. The owners went above most. We had cookies, coffee and wine waiting for us. Later our puppies were left treats. We really did not expect this added effect. The TVs were on with very soothing music. The view off the front porch at night is spectacular. It is very romantic and fairy land like. Everything you can think of is found in the home. Really, Really recommend this place.
