Overview

About the property

5BR 3.5BA and over 5,000 sq ft of space. Beautiful Mountain Views at 3800ft.

This is the perfect family friendly vacation home. Just the right amount of privacy and only 5 minutes from downtown. The road is paved right to the front door with no scary hairpin turns. There is also plenty of parking for multiple vehicles.

Morning Glory shares the driveway and 4 acres with Blossom Cottage VRBO #884843. This is our small 2 guest rental. The cottage can be rented together with Morning Glory for larger parties, and is also rented to other guests simultaneously. Because of the way the properties are situated, you will likely only occasionally encounter other guests in the driveway.

Cleanliness is a major concern for people considering a vacation rental. Rest assured that it is a major concern for us as well. We take pride in our home and that is reflected in our guest reviews.

There are five total bedrooms in this house and they are all very big. The master wing is HUGE! There is one bedroom on main level with a queen bed and separate bath. This is very convenient for people who have difficulty with stairs. The remaining bedrooms are upstairs and three of them have spectacular mountain views. One of the rooms has two twin beds and slide out trundles. The "bee" room also has two twin beds and looks out over the beautiful smoky mountains. The remaining room boasts a queen bed and also has a mountain view. The upstairs rooms are thoughtfully centered around a large dual vanity bathroom. There are extra mattresses on hand that can be placed in any of the rooms to accommodate any sleeping arrangement.

The master wing is beyond spacious. There is a king bed and sitting area surrounded by windows and skylights. The master bath has a jacuzzi tub and separate open shower. Enjoy the granite vanity with dual sinks and the closet is a room in itself.

The gourmet kitchen is stocked for the most demanding chef. There are dual convection ovens and stainless appliances. You will find plenty of place settings for people that actually cook on vacation. A kitchenaid mixer and blender are on hand as well. An island with bar seating is perfect for spectators

All living areas are professionally appointed to guarantee that your party feels right at home. The cozy living room boasts a stone, wood burning fireplace. This is a great place for curling up with a book or catching a show. There is a separate family room that is a great gathering place. There are plenty of board games and playing cards to keep everyone entertained. The huge covered porch has amazing views and overlooks the large backyard. This is a favorite "coffee spot" of our previous guests. There is even a fire pit to sit around and cook up some s'mores. The game room sports a 50" flat screen and a ping pong table. Couches and bar seating make this a great landing spot. There is even a gas fireplace that you can turn on with the push of a button.

Step out of this room and you will find a private indoor 20x40 swimming pool complete with a rock water feature. Feel free to open the retractable roof panels and let the sunshine in. Sit and listen to the waterfall, play some water basketball or brave the water slide. The choice is yours. Take advantage of the available pool heating and enjoy year round swimming. Of course, if you get tired of all of that, there are plenty of books and free wifi.

Check our reviews and book with confidence. This is truly the one vacation home with something for everyone!

About Dan Crouse

My name is Dan and I have lived in NC for over 20 years. I have been married to my wife, Courtney, for 16 years. We have 3 children. Darian, Belle and Canaan. We lived on Camp Branch for over 5 years before relocating to a farm close to Asheville. Camp Branch holds many great memories for our family and we love knowing other families are making memories there as well.

Dan Crouse purchased this estate in 2009

Why Dan Crouse chose Smoky Mountains

This house has the ideal location. It is at 3800 ft elevation without hanging off the side of a mountain. It is 5 minutes from downtown Waynesville, and less than 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a grocery store 5 minutes away. The house is secluded without being isolated. The landscape is perfectly situated to maximize privacy.

What makes this estate unique

You don't have to compromise, you can have it all! Perfect location, plenty of space, no scary roads. Amazing kitchen, comfortable furnishings, beautiful decorations, extremely clean, and that POOL!! This is truly a house like no other.

Beautiful home with Breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. The common rooms were great for gatherings and the back porch and yard were the best with a children's play area and fire pit for S'mores. And to top it off an indoor pool the adults enjoyed as much as the kids. This house has it all. Even a little cottage in the back for a private couples getaway. We loved everything about these accommodations.

An amazing house! The game room, pool and huge yard were perfect for our kids to explore and play!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our whole family to be together. It was spacious and comfortable and met all our needs - from the large kitchen to the game room/pool and out onto the huge back porch with amazing mountain views. We even took advantage of the extra cottage on the property and it worked wonders as a quiet grandparent's getaway space. The kids had room to run and the adults had plenty of places to relax.

Perfect place to be snowed in!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this beautiful property for a belated Christmas celebration with our adult children and their families. This lovely home had plenty of room for all of us to gather in one spot or to spread out to different areas to enjoy all it has to offer. The surrounding property is absolutely beautiful and offers a peaceful setting. The snow storm was "icing on the cake" for a perfect weekend and the beautiful stone fireplace made us cozy and warm the entire time. We all agree that this just may be a new Christmas tradition for our family!

Had a great time at a great property!

  • 5 of 5

Dan, is an exceptional host! If you are looking for a BIG place to stay with great features in a beautiful setting look no further. Our family of 9 enjoyed our time in Waynesville. We explored the area a little and spent time in front of the fireplaces or in the pool. This home is close by options and perfect for just relaxing.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for 14 of us for a wedding in the area and couldn't have found a better property. Even with that many of us, there was plenty of room for alone time. Thank you!!!!
