About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Enjoy a beautiful 3800 square foot custom-built home in the Smoky Mountains 30 miles southwest of Asheville, North Carolina with a breathtaking view from nearly 4,200 foot elevation! You will enjoy a fabulous panoramic view from the deck during the day - and an absolutely enchanting view of the twinkling lights of nearby Waynesville at night!

Mother Nature invites you to relax and enjoy mountain streams, the forests, incredible wildflower displays, quiet ponds and delicious wild blackberries without leaving the mountain.

The deck and surrounding trees are visited often by the many varieties of songbirds. Enjoy watching the fast, feisty and beautiful hummingbirds that visit the feeders multiple times every day! Let your children and guests enjoy feeding the fish in the pond below 'No Fishing Please'!

You will be located only minutes away from many popular attractions such as the palatial Biltmore House and Gardens, Maggie Valley, Cherokee Indian Reservation and Casino, Blue Ridge Parkway, numerous championship golf courses, horseback riding, exciting white water rafting, llama trekking, elk watching at the Pisgah National Forest, snow skiing on Cataloochee Mountain, Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Railroad, gem mining and delightful craft and antique shopping and dining in Asheville, Waynesville and Dillsboro.

This luxurious home features private Master and Guest Suites, Kitchen, Dining Room, Office and Laundry on the main floor! Relax in the comfortable living room with cable TV, wood burning fireplace, VCR and CD players.
The master bedroom is spacious and features a king size bed, a large walk-in closet and a spacious private bath with a large shower and Jacuzzi tub. The private guest bedroom wing features a queen size bed and a separate bath with shower.

The kitchen includes a large refrigerator, stove and double oven, warming drawer, microwave, toaster, toaster oven and coffee maker, dishes, pots, pans, utensils and gadgets, etc. The Formal dining Room seats six or more comfortably - so invite your friends for dinner!

Additional Features

Rates shown below are for up to four guests. Additional guests are charged $80 each/week.

Rentals are normally done on a weekly basis from Saturday afternoon at 3:30 pm through Saturday morning at 10:30 am. This gives us time to make sure the home is properly cleaned and prepared for our next guests.

PLEASE NOTE: VRBO handles inquiries on our property but I handle all actual bookings & billings in order to save renters a VRBO 8% service charge! I can be reached at or 828-507-0848. Ron Thompson

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Mary Jane and Fran, best friends for many years, purchased this home in 2007. Both intend to make Walker-in-the-Hills their permanent home sometime in the future. For now, Fran lives in Marietta, GA with her husband Dave and their son Matthew. Mary Jane lives in Titusville, FL with her husband Ron and her mother Ruth.

Why the Owner Chose Walker-In-the-Hills (Waynesville, NC, USA):
Fran and MJ have vacationed here since the early 80's. They love it! It's quiet, peaceful, cool and beautiful.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
THE PANORAMIC VIEW! The view toward Waynesville to the east is just spectacular. In the morning you will be greeted by a beautiful sunrise and in the evening the lights of Waynesville twinkle magically in the distance. Walker-in-the-Hills is a very special community of everything from small cottages to large, beautiful mountain homes. Located on the eastern slopes of Mt. Lyn Lowry, one of highest mountains in the Appalachians, this quiet and peaceful community enjoys a special ambiance loved by all who visit here.
