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 Smoky Mountains

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.

Perfect Summer Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My small family and little dog had a perfect vacation here! It was super relaxing, had plenty of space, everything you could need and great views. We spent most of our time enjoying the deck and grilling out. Yet, it was only 4 minutes down the mountain to enjoy Maggie Valley activities. We definitely would come back again!!!!

Peacefully Perfect Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacations I have ever been on. I had forgotten how peaceful and relaxing the mountains can be. We always go to the beach but I have realized that the beach is stress and work hauling beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, etc. and there are too many people. We spent most of the weekend just lounging on the huge porch at the Treehouse, sipping coffee in the rockers or in the swing. It was rainy and a little cool so we also turned on the porch firepit. It was wonderful....like we were in our own little world.

We had booked a trip with Cataloochee Valley Tours to see the synchronous fireflies and the elk. Fortunately we were also able to view the Blue Ghost Fireflies right in our own backyard. This trip was so enjoyable! I hope to do it again very soon, only this time I would like to stay longer than three days. Gary, the owner, was so helpful and kind. I would definitely recommend this place for everyone!

Awesome view, comfortable, large space

  • 4 of 5

The wrap around porch was by far our favorite feature of this house! Comfortable rocking chairs, a porch swing, and table and chairs along with gas grill outfit the porch. The view of the sunrise over the mountains is spectacular! The house was roomy for our large family of seven children. Three bedrooms plus pull out couch in the den meant everyone had their space. We also rented the Buckhorn cabin up the road for my parents and aunt and uncle. Close enough for us to walk to, enough apart so the older adults could have some privacy. Highly recommended! We had a water problem on our arrival, but the owner of this property quickly made arrangements to have the problem fixed and made certain that we were taken care of in every way! About 30 minutes to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and 10 minutes to Blue Ridge Parkway. Maggie Valley and Waynesville were about 10 minutes--cute and convenient for shopping.

everything well taken care of

  • 5 of 5

Was in town on business! Brought my family along for a mini vacation. We absolutely loved the tree house cabin. The beds were the most comfortable I have even sleep in. The cabin was nice & clean. The owner was so helpful in our booking. They had us fresh coffee beans that were absolutely superb!! Also chocolate truffles that was very special. We also got our refund back very quick!! Will definitely stay here again!!!!
