TATONKA LODGE, 2 MASTER SUITES ON A BUFFALO RANCH!

Maggie Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Looking to get away to the mountains with your family? Tatonka Lodge is the perfect choice for large families, or groups, traveling together!

Our custom log home sits on a private 65 acre buffalo ranch. Enjoy viewing our buffalo when you drive in or stop by in the morning at feeding time! The cabin was completed in early 2008 and is over 3500 square feet, plenty of room for everyone to spread out. So, whether you are looking to hit the slopes at Cataloochee Ski Resort in Maggie Valley (only 12 miles away) or visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville (only 30 minutes), there is plenty for everyone to do in The Great Smoky Mountains!

Tatonka Lodge, (Indian word for buffalo), is ideal for large families vacationing together because we have 2 master suites which each have private doors leading to the back deck with a fantastic mountain view.

Once inside, you will be in awe of the huge stone fireplace in the great room, surrounded by plenty of seating area for a large group. Also, rest assured the children will be well entertained downstairs in the game room where we have a life size chess set, pool table, air hockey, ping pong & foosball. Also enjoy an evening in our 8 person hot tub out back!

Children will love the hike through the woods to the brand new play area, The BC Corral! This custom designed area has everything from swings, zip line, slides, teeter toter, cargo nets, rock wall & even a horse shoe pit for the adults! The kids will love it here!

If you are looking for a quiet 'get away from it all' retreat, this is it! Enjoy long hikes on the property, fishing on the Pigeon River (within walking distance from the log cabin) or take a trip into town to do some shopping or antiquing.

We are pet friendly, size doesn't matter!

Fun things to do: Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, Biltmore Estate, Ghost Town, hiking at Chimney Rock, tubing at Deep Creek, Fun Factory, Indoor skydiving, visit the Elk in Cataloochee Park, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, take a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Casino in Cherokee, slide down the rocks at Sliding Rock in the Pisgah National Forest, downhill skiing, snowboarding & tubing at Cataloochee Ski Resort, golf at Waynesville Country Club, Maggie Valley Country Club or Ironduff Golf Course!

We hope many wonderful memories will be made while vacationing at Tatonka Lodge!

My brothers & my husband had shared a vision of expanding my fathers buffalo ranch when additional property became available to purchase. With all our knowledge & experiences combine we have built 3 log homes & have been renting them out since 2004. All the furniture in this cabin has been handmade by the wood on the property! Even the covered wagon bed, that was custom built my my father. Once my husband retires from the US Army in about 8 yrs our dream will be to build our log cabin on the property & be more hands on. God has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams. We hope you love the mountains like we have all come to love being transplants from a very flat NY!

Cheryl Hillis purchased this cabin in 2008

While staying at Tatonka Lodge we feel you will really enjoy the peace & tranquility of being secluded on 65 acres. So many of our previous guest have wrote back & told us they had all these plans to sight see but then just loved hanging out in the cabin together enjoying the big game room & the children all love the uniquely designed playground as well as seeing the miniature horse, buffalo, goats & llamas.

Inspiring experience at Tatonka Lodge

Stayed here Mar/Apr 2014. Awoke to 3 inches of snow. It was absolutely beautiful. There is plenty to explore and lots of things to do. It's also a peaceful, quiet place to get away from the daily grind. Hear woodpeckers, owls, cattle, llamas and horses. Tatonka Lodge is full of those unexpected luxuries, such as heated bathroom tile floors. Heaven on Earth.

Family time:)

We are on our way back to New York after spending a long weekend with our grown kids at the Tatonka Lodge. It was the perfect meeting place for us because one of our sons goes to school in South Carolina. We were looking for a ski area to meet him for a few days. Although the weather was warm, the kids were able to get some skiing & snowboarding in at nearby Cataloochie Mountain. We spent a lot of time at the house playing board games, game room games, in the hot tub, star gazing & watching the beautiful sunsets. The accommodations were perfect, clean & there wasn't much that the owners missed to make us feel right at home. Were so happy we chose the Tatonka Lodge:) it was worth the ride!

Great Time

Hey folks, we had a great time at the lodge. I would recommend arriving during daylight, as it can be tricky getting to the lodge your first time. We came there for 3 nights to spend time with my young adult children. After searching for houses in the area on VRBO for about 3 weeks we decided on this one. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. If you have teens-young 20's kids and want to bond with them this is the place. Their is nothing that we needed in the house. The downstairs game room is fabulous and we spent most of our time there and the outdoor fireplace and hot tub. We did bring dinner for 3 nights with us, I would recommend doing that for 2 reasons, one: most restaurants are at least 10 mins away, and two: you will not want to leave this house. Thank you to Cheryl and her family for opening up this house to strangers. If we go to this area again, I wouldn't hesitate to rent this house. We did go to Waynesville one day, while the kids were skiing and had a great time there. Waynesville is about 15 mins away, max, and it is a great little walking/shopping town, probably one of the beast general stores in the country! We also had lunch at Bogarts, and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Property was superb! Extended family trip to the mountains for skiing. Six adults and 4 kids. Great layout and views. Game room was a plus. Hot tub was used regularly, along with grill. Will definitely consider this house again. Perfect for families or small groups of adults.
