About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 6

** Lock Box Entry ~ 24 Hour Check In **

Nestled at 4,500 feet in the magnificent Smoky Mountains is this adorable vacation rental Chalet. Two minutes from the heart of Maggie Valley, yet far enough away in the mountains to relax on the front porch and listen to nothing but Jonathan's Creek. It sounds like a waterfall!

Whether you're an outdoor enthusiast looking for thrilling alpine adventures or simply searching for rest and rejuvenation in a mountainous setting, this enchanting chalet is the ultimate accommodation choice for your next getaway! As soon as you arrive, you'll become mesmerized by the property's breathtaking setting.

Enjoy the amazing views while grilling out on the BBQ grill. Take a walk to the end of the property and picnic by the rambling stream. Or stroll down the street and visit the friendly horses. It is common to spot some elk grazing while you spend downtime in the outdoors!

Start your vacation mornings by sipping a hot cup of coffee in the living room, where you can cozy up by the gas-log fireplace while admiring the incredible scenery through the large picture window. After an eventful day in the great outdoors, refuel with a home-cooked meal prepared in the fully appointed kitchen. Once the evening has come to a close relax in the jetted tub for that soothing soak before bed, then retreat to one of the peaceful bedrooms, where new mattresses and high-quality linens practically guarantee a good night's sleep. All the other amenities you need in your ultimate home-away-from-home are here, including 3 cable TVs and an in-unit washer and dryer for your convenience. Enjoy the new sofa, rocking recliners, and rocking chair on the deck. All linens and 1st roll of paper products are provided. Easy access - paved roads right up to the doorstep. No need for 4-wheel in the winter!

Common Area: We have a beautiful commons area with a stream that runs near the community. The fire pit next to the stream offers many evenings of toasting marshmallows and storytelling.


From hiking and fishing to skiing and horseback riding, Maggie Valley offers a little something for every visitor, and you'll quickly find that this house is ideally located to experience it all! During the wintertime, enjoy prime skiing and snowboarding just 10 minutes away at the Cataloochee ski resort. The golfers in your group will love spending tee time at the Lake Junaluska golf course, which is located an easy 12-minute drive from the chalet. Should you feel like venturing further from the property, you'll find great kayaking and rafting opportunities just 40 minutes from the house.

Charming downtown Waynesville is only 15 minutes away and offers an eclectic mix of specialty shops, art galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries. Also within 10 minutes is a wide variety of family-friendly attractions, including Santa's Land Theme Park and Zoo, the Waynesville Recreation Center, Segway Tours of Waynesville, and the Haywood Arts Regional Theater. During your stay in Maggie Valley, make sure to visit Barbers Orchards or Queen's Farm Stables for some local produce and baked goods. Biltmore Estate is also a must see-attraction that's located 35 minutes away, featuring beautiful gardens, a winery, and a castle-like estate. Additional area attractions include the Oconaluftee Indian Village and Harrah's Cherokee Casino, which are 30 minutes from the property. You can also drive 30 minutes into Asheville to find a myriad of activities, such as art festivals and microbrewery tours. The possibilities for adventure are endless in the Smoky Mountains, but they all begin when you book this phenomenal Maggie Valley vacation rental chalet!

About Leisa Munce

Todd and I live in Melbourne Florida. We purchased the first Chalet for a 'safe place' to run to when those nasty hurricanes come through! But then we fell in love with Maggie Valley. It's wonderful to see those mountains and visit our 'little slice of heaven'. Many years later I still get as excited about going as the day I first saw the place!

Leisa Munce purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Leisa Munce chose Maggie Valley

We looked at many homes before choosing this one. A lot of the properties in the area require being a billy goat to access them! So many have steep drop offs and the roads aren't paved. This location has a very gradual incline and the road is paved right up to the front door. It was just perfect for our family.

What makes this chalet unique

The large yard offers an area to play or relax and enjoy. In the spring and summer it is a great place to throw a frisbee, football, or spread a blanket and enjoy a picnic. In the fall just rake up a huge pile of multi-colored leaves and jump right in. And of course you've got the winter months where you can slide and saucer down the hill!!

The Firepit offers a place to sit by the stream, roast marsh mellows and take in the mountain views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Leisa,

I owe you a huge apology for not emailing you sooner! My schedule has been so busy since our trip. For example, we returned home on Sunday, I worked Monday and we had basketball games Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights! Its been kinda crazy. Please know that my negligence in no way indicates our experience with your chalet.

We had a wonderful time!!!! The chalet was just perfect!!! You never know how you will "fit in" with the housing. As soon as we got there, we all felt at home. It was so welcoming to find the fireplace on and the place nice and toasty when we arrived. We really expected it to be freezing cold inside especially since we arrived at about midnight. It was cozy and charming and just felt right! My sons are convinced that we should try and buy it - lol!!

We ate all but one meal "at home", which really made it feel like home even more. We had my oldest son's homemade waffles every morning! It was nice to just spend time there just hanging out together. We talked about what it would be like to be there during the fall and summer! You never know, I may be back in touch with you, lol.

Two mornings, we woke up to a thin blanket of snow outside. How beautiful it was! As you know, the location is perfect!! We took advantage of the free ski ticket for my youngest on Friday and skiied again Saturday. We also took a day trip to Cherokee. We just had so much fun!! As a mom, I know you appreciate the time we spent together as a family. It was such a blessing to me. The whole trip was one answer after another to prayers - from safe travel, perfect lodging, no injuries, wonderful bonding time, patient, positive attitudes, fun!, etc etc etc.

Leisa, thank you so much! We appreciate how you worked with us - especially with the changes to our travel dates! And thanks for returning our security deposit so quickly!! It has been a pleasure!!

God bless,

We had a great time during our stay. The Chalet is located close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherokee, Waynesville, and Asheville. We saw Elk in Cherokee and on the Parkway. Kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals or snacks. Awesome place to stay!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the chalet. It was cozy, quiet and comfortable for the two adults and three children in our party. It was nice to sit on the porch and watch elk pass through just a couple of feet in front of us! I would definitely consider staying here again when we return to Maggie Valley.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The chalet had all the comforts of home, & great views. We had a great time. The weather was cool & rainy, but the fireplace kept us warm & cozy. I enjoyed shopping antique stores in Maggie Valley, took a trip into Waynesville & went to the casino. We walked the dogs & met the neighbors 2 doors down. We saw redheaded woodpeckers,

& elk tracks on the road. Guinea hens would walk right by the front deck. I'm sure we'll be back. It doesn't get any better than that!

Adorable Chalet in the Valley

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cute chalet. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was a very nice size and had everything you needed to cook a meal. The area surrounding the chalet was beautiful. We really enjoyed Frankie's - a wonderful Italian restaurant and a quaint Mexican restaurant about 5 mins from the chalet. We also enjoyed walking around Lake Junaleska about 12 mins away. Leisa was very easy to work with and you can tell she cares about keeping her chalet quaint and comfortable. We definitely will return.
