About the property

Welcome To Our "Treehouse Cabin"

Notice: Special 20% Discount for 9/10-15, 2017 because of a blacktop re-surface project... if interested, please ask for info.

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.

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.

The house comes with a spectacular view of 300 foot trees in the back yard and the feel of serenity. Good place to unwind and smell the bliss of nature.

My son's 15th birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5

We drove from Miami, FL for a family getaway to celebrate my son's 15th birthday. We had an amazing time, my first time ever visiting NC and I must say I will definitely come back. Cabin had an amazing view, everything was just as described, my boys loved the game room, they did not wanted to leave. Thanks for allowing is to enjoy this amazing cabin!

WOW, the best Treehouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion in the Treehouse. Gary goes all out to make everything nice. We used hot tub, torches, and fire pit every night. We were there over the 4th of July and the fireworks were the best we have ever seen. We have found our summer retreat. Thanks, Gary.

Perfect spot for 3 generation celebration

  • 5 of 5

Our Treehouse was the perfect spot for our family to gather and celebrate our matriarch's 90th birthday. The amazing experience began with the climb up the mountainside to get to the house. Once we arrived the first exclamation was, "it is even more beautiful than the pictures!" We were impressed from beginning to end. The home was comfortably furnished with good quality furniture and appropriate decor. The spotless kitchen was stocked with plenty of tableware, glasses, every appliance we might have needed (coffee pot, toaster, blender, crockpot, mixer), and a GREAT assortment of usable pots and pans (NOT misshapen skillets missing 1/2 their Teflon). If I had to find a 'complaint' it was lack of sharp knives. Perhaps adding a sharpener would help.

Special times were made sitting in the rockers or porch swing on the wrap around upper deck or playing cards at the outdoor table. Summer weather was too warm to fully experience the ambiance of the propane fire pit, but we lit it up one evening 'just because'. We did however make full use of the hot tub, hammock, and lower level game room. The 3 Bedrooms were spacious and well appointed, our teenager was quite comfy on the sleeper sofa.

Should we return to Maggie Valley, we will MOST DEFINITELY book another stay and will also HIGHLY RECOMMEND to all others traveling to the area.

Thank you for providing the perfect spot for our celebration.
