About KEN AND LAURIE WELLS

We live in the Keys and wanted to spend our summers in the mountains, and our winters in the Keys. The economic downfall of the last 2 years has not allowed us to spend the time here that we planned on. So we want to share our family mountain resort with others, since we cannot afford a six month escape at this time.

We have spent the last 3 years developing this special property and we think that everyone that stays here will have a special trip back in time, staying in a rustic log cabin enviroment in the mountains.

KEN AND LAURIE WELLS purchased this estate in 2005

Why KEN AND LAURIE WELLS chose Maggie Valley

We are 2 minutes from town, but once you go up our 1/4 mile long drive way you feel far away from it all.

What makes this estate unique

The sound of water falls 24 hrs. The hiking trails on our 10 acre property. Going from the Hot tub to the cold water fall pool, its like a sweedish bath. NO NEIGHBORS---PRIVACY

Christmas at Wells Stone

Review Submitted January 8 2010 Date of Stay December 2009

We wanted a special place to spend a family Christmas and Wells Stone did not disappoint! Unprecedented amounts of snow kept us in for a few days but we had plenty to keep us entertained between the hot tub pool table sat TV etc. The kids had a blast in the snow; being from Florida it was a special treat. We spent a day at Tube World and went into Waynesville a quaint little town not far from the property, for an afternoon of shopping. The cabin is authentic and rustic but still comfortable warm and very well maintained. Loved the kitchen! The views from all sides are breathtaking and the snowy mountains added to the beauty We definately had the experience we were promised and can't wait to get back!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our son was set to be married December 6, 2014. As best man, I got together with another groomsmen and we decided we wanted a somewaht low key weekend in the Asheville area as a batchelor weekend. Of the locations offered, we decided Wells Stone best suit our needs. It was perfect. Located on a small mountain top overlooking Maggie Valley, the property is the result of a lot of hard work, imagination, and incredible attention to detail. It is a perfect mixture of old and new with easy access to hiking, skiing, and downtown Asheville. We arrived Friday evening and took full advantage of the kitchen facilities in the home, dining on grilled steak, roasted vegetables and shrimp fradiavolo. While we were hoping for a day of snow boarding at one of the area resorts, mother nature let us down. Instead, we opted to brewery hop in downtown Asheville, managing to hit 6 breweries before heading back home with pizza from Frankie's and evening of shooting pool and telling lies while sampling a multitude of IPA beers. All in all, a wonderfull weekend with a great group of guys before packing our son off on his new life. The owner was most accommodating throughout the process and we could not have wanted for anything better...highly recommended by all who attended.

Family gathering for Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5
I spent so much time trying to find the right place for our family of 19 (3 families from different locations) and Wells Stone did not disappoint. Although 14 of us stayed at this location we also rented a place nearby for the overflow. We all spent time during the days and evenings at Wells Stone and with 10 kids this place was perfect for using the game room, having privacy, noise reduction, outside play. We cooked a wonderful Thanksgiving (we did have to buy some disposable serving dishes, but that might be expected with all our folks) and we had our first White Thanksgiving. It was gorgeous there all covered in white. The house had everything we needed and wanted and we were so glad we found it! Want to go back when its warm and see the waterfall in action...and I wouldn't go back if it weren't a great place! Thanks Ken and Laurie!

As you have now experienced the Wells Stone Resort Vacation Home for Thanksgiving. Did any Pilgrims or Indians come to join you from the other side of the mountain? We have worked hard to make your stay in our home an experience - not just a place to stay.

What a WONDERFUL place!!

  • 5 of 5
Three couples (50 somethings) descended for a 4-night stay, coming from all over the map to gather here. We haven't giggled, relaxed, luxuriated, and just plain let loose together for a long time, and Wellsstone was the perfect spot for us to do so. It snowed. It was cold. The waterfall was turned off for the season. So what? Truthfully we didn't care at all, since there is so much else happening in this house: great kitchen, much privacy, fabulous fireplace, awesome views, deck space galore (with rocking chairs!) and a really wonderful game room. This spot was perfect for us, but I can also imagine a huge family gathering of adults, kids, cousins, friends, and others all spread out and having an equally marvelous time. This is a place to call "home" for a few days and really feel like you are "home", and it far exceeded our expectations. The owners are attentive (we got a welcome call 2 hours after our arrival!), the amenities are way over the top, and the special touches throughout the place make it extra wonderful (if only I could have reached one of those cast-iron frying pans hung on the dining room wall….). We especially enjoyed the view of the valley lights at night from our perch halfway up the mountain, and that made our stay even better. Great WiFi, too, and TV in many/every room was a bonus for those of us who insisted on being connected even as we wanted to tune out….

I've rented more than 2 dozen homes/apartments all over the country the past few years, and this spot is the very best one I've found. It is truly a wonderful spot for relaxing, exploring, laughing, star-gazing, and whatever else you have in mind for a couple of days or more. I am so happy we found this spot and can't say enough good stuff about it. If you're thinking about renting this place, please just stop thinking and start acting--you will not be sorry!

Great place!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin exceeded all expectations. The pictures are beautiful, but they can't do it justice. The cabin has so much hard work poured into it, and you can sense the attention to detail when you walk through the place. The location is absolutely perfect, it is not far away from activities and stores, yet it has the upmost privacy and you don't have to worry about neighbors and noise, which is a rare combination. The owner was up front and honest about everything and a very pleasant man to work with.
One fear I had going into this was putting down a deposit and then having one little thing go wrong, only to lose the entire deposit. There ended up being an incident where something was broken with which we did not recall doing, and Ken the owner, was very understanding and worked with us as much as possible.
I would highly recommend this Cabin for anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet, beautiful, family friendly place to vacation. You can also rest assured that you are getting what you pay for and more!!

Wonderful Home Away from Home over Thanksgiving

  • 4 of 5
Three families (two from Florida and one from Michigan) met at Wells Stone Cabin to spend the week of Thanksgiving together. There were six adults and seven children in our big group. This cabin met all of our needs and provided a wonderful home away from home for all of us to enjoy the mountains of North Carolina and each other during the holidays. The cabin was spacious enough to not feel on top of each other, but also cozy and warm enough to give it that homey feeling. The location of Maggie Valley was a great choice for us, as we were anxious to visit Asheville, the Biltmore Estate and other attractions in the area. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone wanting a beautiful, private, mountain cabin get away.
