About Kevin Carter

We love the mountains, traveling and boating. Our children are now grown and they enjoy coming up to the mountains for their vacations too.

Kevin Carter purchased this house in 2014

Why Kevin Carter chose Cataloochee Ranch

We feel this home has it all. Creek, small waterfall and close to skiing, dining, shopping and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Thirty minutes from the Cherokee Casino and thirty-five minutes from Asheville. We have been frequent visitor's and owner's here in the area for many years. If a peaceful yet convenient home is important to you, than this is the home for you!

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the privacy and the ability to relax and enjoy the quietness of this home. The sound of the creek and waterfall as you sit on the porch or in the hot tub will make you realize why we love this place so much. Mountain Creek Cabin has what most people are looking for in a mountain vacation: trees, view and water.

Beautiful, comfortable home with everything you need to relax and be together as a family!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin and Virginia have a lovely home that is one of the best laid-out and thoughtfully appointed vacation homes I've ever visited. It provided plentiful activities and amenities for families to stay on-site and have a "get away from home but be homey" kind of vacation, but it is also conveniently located with respect to many fun outings -- horseback riding, rafting, a cool train ride, wandering nearby cute towns, etc. Thanks to Kevin's recommendation (I had not heard of it beforehand, so I'm so glad he shared the idea with us!), we took the train from Bryson City through the Nantahala Gorge and then had the best of both worlds - we got to raft back down the Nantahala with a great guide. The kids and the adults loved it. FYI, the boxed lunches on the train were great. It poured one day, so we went to the Wheels of Time Museum. Even though I'm not a motorcycle person, it was a really cool museum! I picked the house after reading great reviews, and they were spot on. The beds are comfy, the house was spotless, everything was very nicely decorated, and the kids got a kick out the great layout of the downstairs "kid" bedroom, as well as the themed rooms. It was a perfect house for allowing people to spread out and do their own thing or spend time together. Thanks, Kevin and Virginia!

My overall impression of the property is it was a home away from home for 5 days.

  • 5 of 5

Whenever I come back to Maggie Valley, I will stay definitely stay here. Minutes away from the main road, skiing, restaurants and grocery. Asheville is a short drive to enjoy the Biltmore! A personal bucket list. It is nestled in the mountain, private and super cozy. The people are so nice. They are really doing a great job!!! Thank you so very much! Best vacation in a very long time :)

Great mountain get away!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house tucked away in the Maggie Valley. We loved the creek, waterfalls and the firepit. The owners are very responsive and have a clean home. The kids loved the games as well.

I will definitely have to plan better in the next time because there are not many stores around (thankfully the house was well stocked and had a great welcome package!) and having everything packed up, picked up and cleaned up by 10am is difficult with 3 little kids- but we managed :)

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful house!

Cates Family Christmas in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

My family and I wanted the perfect white Christmas this year but mother nature did not give us but a small dusting. This small short coming did not dampen our Christmas spirit. The decorated cabin was a very nice an unexpected touch that the Carter family did to make our stay at their cozy mountain home, the perfect get away. Thank you for the attention to detail and sharing your home with us. My wife was very happy this Christmas to have her dream vacation met, with our sons in a perfect setting in the mountains. The twin creeks and the waterfall was excellent music for sleeping. I hope everyone who goes to your home enjoys as much as we did.

Thanks again the Cates Family

perfect to spread out

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as advertised with location and cleanliness. A bit hard to find in the dark and icy roads but we managed! We had 3 families together for an early Christmas gathering and it was great. Since it was cold we stayed in and hung out, cooked, visited, opened gifts, watched TV and played with the 2 babies. Some local businesses were closed due to winter or holiday season but we did not totally plan to go out much anyway. The Ingles in Waynesville was the biggest grocery we'd ever seen! We wish check out was at 11:00 instead of 10 as we really had to scramble to leave in time. (but understand another family was coming). A perfect weekend for all of us.
