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 Ivy Hill
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.

Truly felt like staying in a treehouse!
Beautiful area to explore the outdoors. Good grocery stores, restaurants and bakery nearby. Property owner was so friendly and helpful. Would love to go back in winter.
Nice Cabin, Would Stay Again
Great value for the price. Our group of 8 loved the cabin. Would definitely stay again.
Beautiful home and great views!
This was a very beautiful and well kept property! The views were awesome and you could see for miles while relaxing on the deck.

Beautiful cabin with amazing views!
What a beautiful cabin with everything you can possibly need. Located in Maggie Valley meant we were close to everything (ski/train/waterfalls/Whiskey Distillery) and a close distance for restaurants. We loved the hot tub and the decking area was perfect for coffee or an evening glass of wine! Gary was a perfect host ensuring we got there safely (there was a sprinkle of snow on our arrival) and answered all questions we had prior to arrival. We will be highly recommending this cabin to friends.
Amazing view, very comfortable and close to everything
We were very happy with this house. From the living room you have a 180 view of the surrounding mountains and from the wrap around porch the view is even more breathtaking. The downstairs has a playroom that we used a lot and a very nice hot jacuzzi outside. We felt very comfortable and spent a lot of time indoors, cooking, playing cards and enjoying the view. High speed wifi was a big plus and they have netflix which was great for the kids. The location is great, it's very close to everything, downtown waynesville was great, lots of shops and restaurants. We also visited Soco Falls which is only 15 mins away and easily accessible from the road, both my 3 year old and 17 year old had a great time. Highly recommend.
