Overview

About the property

Welcome To Our "Treehouse Cabin"

We say it 'feels like a giant tree house' because it's very open indoor / outdoor style living and located in a private setting that is surrounded by trees. The house is centrally located in Wild Acres, one of Maggie Valley's original mountain neighborhoods. It's been completely redecorated and updated with all conveniences featuring 2 wrap around decks, hot tub, fireplace, BBQ, WiFi, game room plus 3 bedrooms (2 queen / 1 king), 2 full baths and fully equipped kitchen with anything a cook would want... right down to the spices! :) Even better it is within walking distance of our other ‘Buckhorn Cabin’ ( VRBO #899156 ) which is on the same street! This means, between the two cabins, we could accommodate up to 14 people for larger gatherings.

At 3500 ft. elevation, we're located in the heart of beautiful Maggie Valley. Minutes from everything... Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cataloochee Ski Area, downtown Waynesville, shopping, restaurants and about 30 minutes to Asheville, the Biltmore, Harrah's Casino and much more... like mountain streams, Lake Junaluska, great waterfalls and 19 of the highest peaks east of the Mississippi.

Access is easy for any car or van because the roads are paved and state maintained to within about 100' of our driveway. We have two large parking areas each capable of accommodating two normal size vehicles. That said, we are about halfway up the mountain and there is a short, paved but steeper incline so we don't recommend trailers or motorcycles.

We created it as our vacation home & studio to be a peaceful, inspirational getaway especially for those looking for a place to 'get creative'. We chose Maggie Valley for it's natural beauty, convenient location and great climate. As artists and photographers ourselves, we think this beautiful valley nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains is one of the most beautiful areas in the world!

We want everyone who stays at our mountain home to enjoy it as much as we do and are committed to doing everything we can to make your stay an enjoyable, memorable experience.

About Gary Walker

We've been together as artist partners for over 30 years. Our background in commercial art gave us the opportunity to develop our art, photography and printing expertise. We've now shifted our focus to fine art and specialize in photography, digital painting, printing and custom framing. Today we enjoy working with other local fine artists and photo enthusiasts who want to sell or display their own personal work.

Gary Walker purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Gary Walker chose Maggie Valley

We chose our 'Treehouse Cabin' because we wanted a vacation home in the mountains, in a beautiful location, that would be a great creative getaway. We think the Smoky Mountains, and particularly Maggie Valley, offer some of the most beautiful scenery and most pleasant places to visit in the entire country. The climate is great, not too hot, not too cold, the people are friendly and there are so many things to enjoy from scenic mountain drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway, to hiking the Smoky Mountains, to fishing, waterfalls and of course photography and painting. Since we are not their full time we decided to share it with others who want a peaceful getaway in the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with our home because of the open indoor / outdoor feel of it... as soon as you walk in you feel like you're in giant tree house. The two wraparound decks feature a hot tub, southern style rockers, BBQ grill, hammock, porch swing and outdoor dining area. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, completely equipped kitchen, fireplace, laundry and game room. We're perfectly located, in the heart of Maggie Valley in of its original mountain neighborhoods... close to restaurants, bars, tourist attractions, shopping, golf, Lake Junaluska and much more.

Lovely cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our group enjoyed the weekend in the treehouse cabin. The kids loved the game table and hot tub and the adults enjoyed the rocking chairs and fire table. Great cabin with room for two families of four.

Awesome experience in the tree tops!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three days/nights in this lovely cabin. It was a wonderful experience! It truly is in the tree tops! The cabin is very large and extremely comfortable! All the facilities were very nice. Comfort is very important to us - and the beds and chairs were VERY comfortable! We hope to stay there again!

This Place is Great

  • 5 of 5

We had a Great time in a beautiful location the home had everything a person could want it truly is like living in a Tree house.

We had family from Arizona, California, Connecticut and had our local son and daughter all get together

The covered porch was fantastic and allowed us to be outside even when raining.

The Grill was first class and also the gas fire pit and hot tub

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Owner was great to deal with. Helpful. Kind. Available for pesky questions even when I should have seen the answers for myself.

House is in great location, beautiful setting, very comfortable.

There is so much to do in Maggie Valley but my wife and I mostly just stayed at the house and relaxed.

Place was very clean, had everything we needed. Plenty of room.

I travel up that way a few times a year most years. We will be back.

Thanks so much.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this mountain retreat! The home was clean and comfortable and the surroundings were beautiful. My son would have loved to just stay in the lower level of the house having ping pong, pool, and air hockey tournaments but we were able to drag him out of the house each day to explore Maggie Valley, Waynesville, Lake Junaluska and the Cataloochee Valley. We also really enjoyed the covered deck -- so relaxing for morning coffee, afternoon reading and evening cookouts. We took advantage of the hot tub as well. Many thanks to Gary for your hospitality! We definitely recommend the Tree House!
