Todd and I and our two teenagers live in Melbourne Florida. We purchased the first Chalet for a 'safe place' to run to when these nasty hurricanes come through. But then we fell in love..in love with Maggie Valley. It's wonderful to see those mountains and visit our 'home away from home'. Many years later I still get as excited about going as the day I first saw the place!
We looked at many homes before choosing this one. A lot of the properties in the area require being a billy goat to access them! So many have steep drop offs and the roads aren't paved. This location has a very gradual incline and the road is paved right up to the front door. It was just perfect for our family.
The large yard with the swing set offers an area to play or relax and enjoy. In the spring and summer it is a great place to throw a frisbee, football, or spread a blanket and enjoy a picnic. In the fall just rake up a huge pile of multi-colored leaves and jump right in. And of course you've got the winter months where you can slide and saucer down the hill.
