Our family has traveled to Maggie Valley for over 20 years. Every summer we rented a home with our children and enjoyed to many gifts the area has to offer ie. woods, wildlife, quiet time together, rowdy time as well. Many memories were made and we decided to purchase a family retreat home at the top of a ridge. We continue to visit with friends and family and would love to share our uniques experiences with you. Our home is very comfortable and appointed well with linens and cleaning provided. Full comforts of home, but a true getaway with unbeatable views of the sunrise and sunsets! We hope you'll consider meeting 'on the ridge' at Wind Spirit Ridge, Smoky Mountain Retreat, MAGGIE Vallley, NC
Cathy Liott purchased this lodge in 2005
There are many attractions in a close vicinity. Theme parks, wildlife preserves, trout fishing, golfing, apple orchards, antiique shops, snow skiing, horseback riding at authentic Cataloochee Ranch, 30 minutes to Asheville airport and Biltmore mansion, gardens and winery. Cherokee Indian Reservation is also 30 minutes and educational as well as entertaining with the casinos and live theatre. We hope to the home someday.
There is a paved, maintained road that takes us to the top of the ridge and breaktaking views. Many rentals are hard to access on dirt roads that are not maintained. We feel we have the seclusion and privacy in the woods with the convenience of easy access. The main lodge at the bottom of the hill is on call for your needs.
This house is perfect for a large group. There are two large living areas - one on each floor. The two first floor bedrooms are suites - perfect for two couples. The lower level worked great for our two adult sons. We didn't use the lower level much except to do our workouts and play foosball, but spent most of the time in the beautiful great room on the main floor. No complaints...the owner provided a Christmas tree and decorations, the house was clean and comfortable and the views were great. I personally don't like switchback roads up mountains, so that was a challenge and stretch for me. Also, we have hard core cooks in our family and the kitchen was small for more than one person at a time. If you are sight-seeing or eating out a lot, it would be just right. For fixing a big Christmas dinner - a little bit of a challenge. If you are going to need the internet, you will need patience. Streaming video did not work. It is a great place to relax and take advantage of the peaceful views. Make sure to get out and walk the neighborhood - great workout with all the hills.
I've used VRBO a couple of times. This was by far the most efficient and smooth transaction. The process was easy and transparent. The house is perfect. The views are priceless. I highly recommend this house
Beautiful, large, comfortable rooms, plenty of space for seven adults and a child, very well equipped, large luxurious bathrooms and spacious bedrooms, wrap-around porch with grand views, an open loft above the large living area where we did jigsaw puzzles as other family members watched TV or read. Went snow tubing, drove into the park one evening for the elk crossing, walked around Waynesville and had lunch -- We had a wonderful time!
To quote lines from an old song" I'm setting onto of the world looking down at creation".
That is what we did for 4 weeks in this lovely home with SOOOOO many amenities. We had breakfast lunch and dinner on the deck to see the view and be entertained by the humming birds that were plentiful. SO SAD all the many years we have been to maggie, we did not know about this beautiful home!
We very much enjoyed our week at this gorgeous house. The drive is quite impressive - 3 big switchbacks up a mountain. But, we drove up & down several times a day for a conference without any difficulty. The house was beautiful and well equipped. Would definitely stay there again. My friend left her bathing suit in the closet and the owner graciously mailed it back to her too!
This house was exactly what we needed for a Spring Break get away! It felt like a real vacation. Listing was very accurate and owner was very easy to work with. Winding mountain road to the top and a beautiful view into the valley and lake below. Very clean and well cared for. Lots of room for everyone. Kids had their own den downstairs. We were close enough to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway and do some hiking, drove into Asheville to zipline park (great for all skill levels), and a close drive to Waynesville to shop the wonderful downtown area. Several good restaurants close-by or kitchen good enough to eat in with a gas grill outside. Nice and clean grocery store only a few miles away in Waynesville, but a gas station at the bottom of the hill for a few staple items. Our kids also loved walking along the creek near the barn and playground area. Highly recommended!
Three miles from entrance to the Blue Ridge Smoky Mountains National Park
