Maggie Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin,2 Bdrm+Hide-a-bed(Queen),2 Baths,(Sleeps 4-6),A/C,Linens Included

***PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR SPECIAL RATES!!!!!***

“A World Apart” is not your typical bare provisioned rental cabin locked away in a subdivision overlooking more houses than views. Its location was selected and the home painstakingly built by our family to take advantage of the best of Maggie Valley and Western North Carolina. The care and attention to detail is visible throughout.

Our home is located at 4000' elevation in the mountains and would NOT be easily accesible by motorcycle. Even though our property has plenty of parking and room for cars, trucks and trailers, riding by motorcycle will be up to the comfort level of the rider. The road leading to our property is made up of dirt/gravel and may not be suitable for every rider.

Nestled on 6 secluded acres of Soco Mountain, our home offers a Romantic Oasis for Couples or the perfect Retreat for Families. Relax on the Wrap-Around Porch and unwind while enjoying the scenery and listening to the persistent harmony of the Creek winding through the valley below. If you’re still and quiet, some of the neighborhood hummingbirds might visit and perhaps even an owl or two will announce the arrival of dusk.

The downstairs of our home features a magnificent Stone Fireplace towering over the living room, Satellite HDTV with DVD, broad-plank hardwood floors, queen sleeper sofa, slate bathroom with Antique Claw-Foot Tub and walk-in shower. The Queen Bedroom features a large armoire, Satellite TV/DVD/VCR, and its own door leading to the hot tub. A fully-equipped and well-stocked kitchen with slate countertops and peninsula bar in addition to the dining table for six offers plenty of seating and amenities for your family gathering. Screen doors and windows allow for Mother Nature's ventilation and the sounds of the wilderness without being visited by it.

Upstairs the loft features a pool table and French Doors that open onto a Covered Porch complete with Dining Area. In the Master Suite, unwind in the slate-surround Jacuzzi Tub while gazing out at the mountainside or enjoying the soothing embers of the electric fireplace. Satellite HDTV with DVD invites you to just lounge in the pillow-top King Bed watching a movie. The French Doors from the Master open onto a Large Private Balcony that is the perfect place to enjoy the morning’s first cup of coffee.

For those who still feel the need to keep in touch with the outside world, free high-speed DSL wireless internet is provided. Please note that this service is wireless only so you'll have to have a wireless enabled computer to use the free service.

Wrap-around porches complete with rockers, swings, Adirondack chairs, charcoal grill and (our family’s favorite) a secluded hot tub for 6 are really why you vacation in the mountains. The upstairs Tin-Roofed Porch plays an unforgettably soothing melody on drizzly afternoons.

On adventuresome days, you’re a short walk to cascading waterfalls and only a few minutes drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Ghost Town in the Sky, the Cataloochee Ski Resort, Cherokee and Harrah’s Casino. A late afternoon trek to see the Elk in Cataloochee Valley is a must do and in little more than 30 minutes you can be enjoying the Biltmore Estate in Asheville or the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad in Bryson City.

We welcome you to be our guests and find out what makes our home 'A World Apart!' However, don't just take our word for it. Our previous guests comments are the best editorial of what you can expect.

I've had a love for the Smokies throughout my life. Annual retreats to their splendor, beauty, and peace have been a part of my life since I was a small child. When I need a reprieve from the sometimes hectic 'normal' life that I head to the bosom of these old mountains. Just one breath of cool, crisp morning air seems to put everything back in its proper place. I hope you too can find a little of that mountain magic. --Brien, Charlotte, NC

Brien & Tricia purchased this cabin in 2008

The name “A World Apart” came quite easily standing on the porch one early evening. After your visit I hope you’ll understand why...

The land on which A World Apart sits has been in the family for a few decades. The cabin was started in 1985 and was literally built board by board by one person. It was a quiet retreat and went through numerous design changes and additions, but the interior was never completed (some would say it was never started). With its lack of insulation, few exposed frame walls, and roughed in plumbing and electrical, it was a fun place for getaways where no one could find you.

In 2006, after many years of the cabin sitting desolate, I purchased the property. That set off a two year adventure of weekly drives to the property, more Lowes trips than I ever thought possible, and a frustrating and painstakingly slow yet rewarding process of reworking and completing the interior of the cabin and bringing it up to current building code. The majority of the work was done by my family including all the framing, electrical, heating and air, insulation, cabinetry, tile work, flooring and stairs (which was milled from red oak trees from my primary house), and too many other details to recall them all. It was a labor of love that nearly broke me in so many ways.

We tried to pull from the best of the cabins we had visited around the Smokies and at the same time, add a little of our own flair and style. I am quite pleased with the result and have been rewarded by the many kind words and stories from guests.

It’s all about location! The cabin sits just a few minutes West of Maggie Valley, Ghost Town, and Cataloochee Ski Resort. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs along the back side of the mountain. Even being so close to these amenities it feels as though you are on a quiet hiking trail in the middle of the Park. The 5.5 acres is surrounded on all sides by vacant properties so that there is literally no other sign of civilization within your view. The only sounds are the wind through the trees, the creek running through the hollow below, and nature living the way it was intended.

The Wonderful World Apart

  • 5 of 5
World Apart has got to be one of the best deals in Maggie Valley and surrounding areas. The hot tub, the pool table, the jacuzzi, the fire pit and the hammock are just some of the great features of this great cabin. However, by far the best feature of all is that it is on 6 acres of land by itself. The wife and I both have to deal with the public and really like getting away from it all. We now have stayed 7 nights last year and 7 nights this year without seeing or hearing the first human being. The chipmunks and the humming birds were the only guests we had all week long. This cabin is great therapy for those who live stressful lifes. The owners of this cabin are some of the nicest people that you will ever want to deal with over the phone. I could go on and on ranting and raving about this place but one sentence basically sums it all up and that is. We will be returning to this cabin every year for a week of tranquility, this place is just what the doctor ordered.

Owner's Response: It was so nice having you back as our guests. We're glad you once again had a great, relaxing time. I chuckled when I read your point about the relaxation. We had this reinforced to us this Spring when we stayed for the Spring cleaning and to add some new things like the fire pit and hammock area. We had it planned out to have PLENTY of time to work and relax, but ended up having to extend our stay and still found ourselves rushing and working into the wee hours the last few days because we spent the first many days sleeping late and doing nothing but laying around staring at the mountains enjoying the silence. We hadn't been that relaxed in quite a while and forgot just how comfortable the cabin is. It will suck you in without you even realizing it. :-)

We can't wait to have you as our guests again next year.

Best mini- vacation yet!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Let me start with our arrival. When we walked in to the music playing and the smell of the fireplace it just made this cabin feel like home. The kids went from room to room and all you heard was " Whoa!", "You gotta look at this" and "This is awesome". They loved the hot tub and the pool table. They spent many hours out by the fire pit roasting hotdogs and marshmallows. We spent every night here either playing games on the porch or corn hole in the drive way. The view was wonderful and it was so quiet. We really didnt even want to leave the cabin for dinner or shopping. We had planned other things to do in near by Asheville, but we were so relaxed and content at the cabin that we just stayed in. We did enjoy the Fantasy putt putt corse which was only minutes away as well as the food at J. Arthurs. All in all this was a great vacation for us. We really would love to come back here again and again. We suggest this cabin to anyone who wants to relax and get away from it all. You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: It was so great having you as our guests. I'm glad you had such a good time. Even to this day our kids do the same thing running around rediscovering everything in the cabin. Also, like you we find it very hard to leave the cabin once we're there/ It just seems to suck you in saying "Just sit down and relax. You don't need to do anything else." That's great when you're visiting. Much harder when I go there to get some work done on the cabin. :) We hope to see you back soon.

Perfect secluded get away. Truly is "A World Apart"

Perfect secluded get away. Truly is "A World Apart"
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came here to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. It was exactly what we were looking for! A peaceful cabin up in the mountains, complete with a private hot tub on the deck. We even took a small hike up the mountain and enjoyed some fresh wild blackberries on the way. We highly recommend this if you want a romantic get away or just some time with the family. You won't be disappointed, it looks just like the pictures. The cabin is decorated beautifully and well maintained, and the owners go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. :)

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the compliment. We've tried to incorporate the best of what we've experienced elsewhere including the best of customer service. I hope that our home will be a great permanent reminder of your anniversary. It's helping people make those memories that I enjoy most about renting the cabin. Hopefully we can be a part of making your future memories as well.

Just Plain Awesome Cabin and area to stay visit

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for a week in a very cozy cabin with all the amenities one needs. The cabin is minutes from the Parkway and the wonders Maggie Valley has to offer. The owners were very helpful through out our stay and were available to answer questions during all hours. Cant say enough about the week me and my six year old son spent at the cabin.

Owner's Response: That's such a great age to enjoy a mountain vacation with your son. Some of my best memories are still the Smoky Mountain vacations I took with my family as a boy. I'm glad the wonder and beauty of the hills are being passed on to future generations to enjoy and protect.

Great Cabin - Highly Recommended

  • 4 of 5
The cabin is as described and was very clean upon our arrival. The only reason I cannot grant a higher rating is due to the fact that several amenities (hot tub, wifi) were not operable during our stay. Nevertheless, we still had a wonderful time at the cabin and would not hesitate to stay again. We took a short hike up the road and were pleasantly surprised at the picturesque brook/waterfall we encountered. The cabin is so isolated that I was able to make loud silly bird calls while we sat around the fire pit at night roasting marsh mellows. In the morning, we enjoyed having coffee on the porch in our PJs with no worries of neighbors or street traffic. The pool table, cable TV, and games provided enough entertainment on rainy/stay-in days. I would highly recommend a 4WD vehicle during periods of inclement weather. The road leading to the cabin is steep in places and there is loose gravel. If being in the woods at night with no sign of civilization spooks you, then this is NOT the cabin for you. However, if you are like us and want to get away from the “rat race” in a secluded location, then “A World Apart” is the perfect place (I now understand why the owners selected the cabin’s name).

Owner's Response: The story behind the name is that I was sitting on the front porch swing at dusk one evening with no noise except the stream below, an owl hooting in the distance, and a chipmunk scurrying in the leaves. I was going through a list of probably 20 names for the cabin and wasn't really crazy about any of them. I looked out through the woods trying to decide on a name and thought this place really is a world apart. It stuck.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay through the issues we had. Somehow we got hit with a broken hot tub, broken internet and phone service, and a broken dryer all within a few weeks at the busiest time of year. How's the Hee Haw song go? "If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all?" :)
