“Living The Dream!” - ‘Buckhorn Cabin’ is the log cabin of our dreams! It has everything anyone could want in a true Smoky Mountains, log cabin experience with all conveniences. After looking at dozens of 2 bedroom, log homes in Maggie Valley we chose “Buckhorn Cabin” because it is absolutely the most beautiful, convenient, easy access, yet private log cabin we’ve seen anywhere in the valley. What’s even better it is within walking distance of our other ‘Treehouse’ cabin ( VRBO #618254 ) which is on the same street! This means, between the two cabins, we could accommodate up to 14 people for larger gatherings.

Our ‘Buckhorn Cabin’ offers a spectacular year round mountain view. The cabin is very private, situated on almost 2 acres, yet located in the heart of Maggie Valley and convenient to absolutely everything. Enjoy morning coffee on the covered deck while sitting on Cracker Barrel rockers and watch as the mist rises over the valley and clouds float by across the mountains. In the evening, watch the sunset swinging on the porch swing or soaking in the 6 person jacuzzi hot tub. Grill a family size meal on the large outdoor BBQ located next to 2 picnic tables. And later, enjoy a campfire under the stars, while listening to the locusts, as you gaze down at the lights of Maggie Valley.

Indoors enjoy all modern conveniences including central A/C, internet, WiFi, phone plus cable TV / DVR and VCR with DVD player in the living room and bedrooms. The huge kitchen, with butcher block island, features everything any chef might want including refrigerator with icemaker, full size oven, 2 microwaves, dishwasher plus coffee maker, grinder, blender, toaster, crock pot, and electric grill. It is stocked with local roast coffee, spices and condiments, paper products and features all the dishes and cooking utensils you need to prepare a family size gourmet feast. Before tuning in for the night, you can relax in the living room in front of the convenient gas log fireplace as you look around at the interesting collectibles displayed around the cabin.

The cabin sleeps 4-6 people featuring 2 large bedrooms with queen size beds and a queen size sofa bed in the living room for extra guests. Both bedrooms have cable TV and phone. Enjoy a mountain view from the master bedroom with direct access to the deck via glass doors. It has a walk-in closet, and master bath with 2 sinks and walk-in shower. The roomy second bedroom has a bath featuring 1 sink plus bath tub, shower and large closet. All bed linens are provided with extra pillows, blankets and quilted bed covers. And if you need to wash clothes, there’s even a washer & dryer with detergent and dryer sheets included.

We are dog lovers and wouldn’t go anywhere without our Honey Bear! So, pets are welcome as long as they are friendly, well behaved, never left alone indoors, and always on leash when outdoors. There is plenty of space to walk your dog outside the house, up and down the long driveway or anywhere around the neighborhood.

The huge, flat parking area can accommodate up to 4 cars, and offers one of the best parking situations we’ve seen anywhere in Maggie Valley. Access to the cabin is also pretty easy. We are located about halfway up the mountain and, although there are two very short steeper inclines, the main roads are paved, state maintained, and easy for anyone to navigate in any type of car ( 4 wheel drive is not needed, and it is not scary :). That said, we do not recommend trailers or motorcycles and the only time we caution our guests is if it snows and gets slippery in winter we tell them to wait a day or so until the ice melts. We like to remind people that, although access to our property is quite easy, remember that you are in the mountains and even experienced drivers should always be very cautious about driving anywhere in the mountains when the roads are slippery.

At 3500 ft. elevation, we're located in the heart of beautiful Maggie Valley. Minutes from everything... Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cataloochee Ski Area, downtown Waynesville, shopping, restaurants and about 30 minutes to Asheville, the Biltmore, Harrah's Casino and much more... like mountain streams, Lake Junaluska, great waterfalls and 19 of the highest peaks east of the Mississippi.

So, if you’re looking for a true Smoky Mountain log cabin that has it all, you’ve found it! We invite you to share our ‘Living The Dream’ experience by booking our ‘Buckhorn Cabin’ vacation home for your mountain getaway.

About Gary Walker

We've been together as artist partners for over 30 years. Our background in commercial art gave us the opportunity to develop our art and photography. We've now shifted our focus to fine art and specialize in photography, digital painting, printing and custom framing. Today we enjoy working with other local fine artists and photo enthusiasts who want to sell or display their own personal work.

Gary Walker purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Gary Walker chose Maggie Valley

We chose to purchase our 'Buckhorn Cabin' because we wanted a log home in a beautiful location, with year round mountain views that would be a great creative getaway. We think the Smoky Mountains, and particularly Maggie Valley, offer some of the most beautiful scenery and most pleasant places to visit in the entire country. The climate is great, not too hot, not too cold, the people are friendly and there are so many things to enjoy from scenic mountain drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway, to hiking the Smoky Mountains, to fishing, waterfalls and of course photography and painting. Since we are not there full time we decided to share it with others who want a peaceful getaway in the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

The front deck features a hot tub, southern style rockers, porch swing and spectacular year round mountain views. The cabin sleeps 4-6 people, there are 2 bedrooms with sofa bed, 2 baths, completely equipped kitchen, fireplace, laundry and game room. We're perfectly located, in the heart of Maggie Valley in of its original mountain neighborhoods... close to restaurants, bars, tourist attractions, shopping, golf, Lake Junaluska and much more.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Buckhorn Cabin. The cabin was clean and accommodating. It had everything we could need. The views were amazing and relaxing. We were close to shopping but not close enough to be disrupted by city noises. Mr. Walker was extremely easy to work with and even called to make sure we were prepared for the snow that came in. We are from Florida and are not familiar with preparation for weather like that. We hope to visit again in the future. Thank you for a wonderful time.

We loved Buchhorn Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The directions were very clear and easy to follow. The parking area was easy to manuever. The cabin was clean and comfortable and the hot tub was awesome! We visited a number of waterfalls in the area and got some great pictures! The view of the mountains from the deck was amazing and we can't wait to come back!

Gorgeous, Cozy, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We spent a romantic weekend away at your beautiful cabin and enjoyed every minute.

Glorious views; a warm and cozy feel to the cabin, which is full of special little touches and things that obviously show the extra thought and attention put into your guests’ comfort. The hot tub was great and the location was perfect - Far enough away from neighbors to be private but a short drive to all amenities.

We couldn’t recommend highly enough, and would love to return again in the future!
