Property description

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.

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.

  • Limited Accessibility:

    With regard to wheelchairs the property is best described as 'very limited' accessibility. Parking and entrance to the main level is all on one level with no steps and could be accessed by a wheelchair but there are no assistance devices (ie., handrails, etc.) in the bathroom. Additionally, I am unsure about how easy it would be to navigate a wheelchair into the bathroom. If one is not completely dependent on the wheelchair you could probably get around ok... however I think it would be a challenge for someone who is extremely disabled and dependent on the wheelchair....moreless

No pets can ever be left unattended and must be leashed at all times outdoors....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Maggie Valley, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
