About Greg Wishart

We are originally from New Jersey and lived in Tampa Florida since 1997. We came to Western North Carolina and fell in love with the Smoky Mountains. After searching properties all over the area we found our dream home in Waynesville, and we would like to share it with you. We love the views of the mountains and majesty of nature, and enjoy many outdoor activities including whitewater rafting, hiking and more.

Greg Wishart purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Greg Wishart chose Walker-In-the-Hills

Our home is 5 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance that offers a scenic drive and many spectacular views. Waynesville also has many nice restaurants, artesian shops, brew pubs. Asheville is only 25 minutes east, and Bryson City is 30 minutes west where you can find the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad and whitewater rafting.

What makes this cabin unique

Our vacation home has magnificent short and long range views of the mountains, gorgeous sunrise views, an extensive landscaped yard, an outdoor fire pit, a gas fire pit on the deck, and lower lever with pool table, pinball machines, ping pong, and entertainment area to keep everyone busy. On a summer day, the air will always be nice and cool up at our home and balmy down below!

Beautiful home with gorgeous Mountain View’s!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the first week of April and house and weather were perfect! Home has everything you need! Well stocked pantry with spices and basic items.

We enjoyed waterfall hiking and the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway is right near the home.

Loved the house and Waynesville!

Amazing Views with so much more!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many previous places in Tennessee, but this was our first trip to North Carolina. This place is far above the rest. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have three boys, and they were all well-entertained. The game room was amazing, offering pinball machines, ping pong, a pool table, basketball, movie room, and an arcade game! The house itself is simply perfect, offering far more than just the basics. They really thought of everything, and nothing was missing. The outdoor fire pit, the backyard, the inside decor, the grill, and the gas fire pit on the deck were just some of the highlights. The property manger was also very helpful and more than accommodating. Our family not only recommends this place, but we hope to be back in the near future. A great vacation.

Great House, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this home. It was a beautiful home in a beautiful setting. The house was fully stocked with everything you could need for your stay. Beds were comfy! The game room is amazing-our kids loved it. Location was right in the middle of some great towns/sites. Cherokee, Asheville, Waynesville, and Maggie Valley. Great place to stay!

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent an enjoyable five days at this magnificent home. Every detail has been thought out so that you can enjoy your stay. You almost wish there was bad weather so that you can fully enjoy the downstairs play room.

Management was very easy to work with and very attentive.

Mountaintop Oasis is a beautiful home that our family throughly enjoyed

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in Waynesville, North Carolina with family and friends and stayed at the Mountaintop Oasis home. This was our first trip to this area after spending the past few Thanksgivings in North Georgia. We were very happy with our decision to try something new and will definitely return.

The home was beautiful, well maintained, and very comfortable. The views from the deck at 4,000 feet on the mountain side were stunning. The owners have stocked the home with just about everything you might need during a vacation. The modern kitchen had everything necessary for preparing meals. The home is convenient to shopping and hiking trails along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We had a mix of some that arrived by car and others that flew into Asheville. The trip to the airport was only 50 minutes.

While our family and friends enjoy the outdoors, when the sunset the game room and movie room became the place to enjoy our evenings. The game room includes a pool table, ping pong table, corn hole toss, two vintage pinball machines, a multi-game table console, and a basketball arcade game. The DVD selection was extensive and the movie room was equipped with excellent audio/video equipment.

We highly recommend staying at this home and would like to thank the owners for sharing their vacation home with our family.

Beautiful time in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very comfortable. It was one of the best places that we have stayed. The location was convenient to places to eat and shop. Having the Blue Ridge Parkway so close was a bonus. The guys enjoyed the game room and movie room. We will definitely return.

Car: necessary

Take a scenic drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the entrance is only a four miles from the house. Maggie Valley and Waynesville Country Clubs offer great golf and spectacular scenery with reasonable afternoon rates. For a leisurely day of waterfall viewing, drive to the Cashiers/Highlands area. You can’t leave here without seeing in Asheville – the palatial Biltmore House & Winery - a true American castle. Call ahead for special events including jazz and flower festivals or to book dinner reservations.

For the adventuresome, try whitewater rafting at the Nantahala Outdoor Center about 30 minutes away in Bryson City. Instead of driving the whole way, take the Great Smoky Mountain Railway to Nantahala and raft back down the river. If you don’t want to raft, the railway has other scenic excursions as well as murder mystery dinner rides. Spend all or part of a day hiking, fishing, picnicking and enjoying the waterfalls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Drive to Chimney Rock Park for a fun day of hiking and beautiful vistas followed by a theatrical performance at the renowned Flat Rock Playhouse. If all this sounds too exhausting, simply relax on our deck and marvel at the splendor of the mountains, wildflowers and humming birds, and go to dinner at the Balsam Inn for a delicious home cooked meal, just 10 minutes away, or the Old Stone Inn in for mouth-watering, pink salmon, trout and other specialties.
