About the property



This is my largest cabin and can sleep four people. Two bedrooms, two baths, a large covered porch with hot tub and a fireplace in the living room make this a great family vacation choice. There’s a nice little picnic spot down by the tumbling brook as an added feature, with the stunning beauty of the North Carolina mountains all around. Like all of our cabins, the Johnson Branch Cabin is fully equipped, spotless, and just waiting for you!

My cabin offers everything that you will need; private Hot Tub, cable TV, Central air and heat, unique setting, privacy and peace. The Johnson Branch cabin is 1 mile from the Valley, restaurants, gift shops and bars. The cabin is tastefully decorated with antiques. From the porch you can enjoy the sound of the creek bordering the property. The Johnson Branch cabin has wireless Internet, bring your laptop and work anywhere on the property, sit on your deck or by the creek. ONLY (1) one dog under 25 lb. will be accepted for a non refundable pet fee of $ 100.00 + 11% tax. ABSOLUTELY NO CATS!

My residence is in Maggie Valley, in the event of a problem during your stay you will not have to rely on a property manager.

About Madeleine Kenowski

Hello there and welcome to my cabins. I was born in Lausanne Switzerland and after spending a few years in Wisconsin and Florida, I realized how much I missed the Alps. My husband and I bought this beautiful piece of property a few years back, built our home and three cabins. This is not a rental complex all cabins are very private.

Why Madeleine Kenowski chose Maggie Valley

The setting of my cabins is unlike many others. Not only will you be closed to town but you will also have the privacy you are looking for. I am always around to take care of what ever needs you might have and you will not have to rely on a property manager.

What makes this cabin unique

Privacy, sound of the Johnson Branch Creek. Cabins well taking care of. So peacefull, you will get the rest you are looking for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented the Johnson Branch cabin and it was better than our expectations. Even after viewing the pictures, it was bigger than expected and emaculately clean. It was really peaceful, sitting on the porch, rocking in the chairs, and enjoying nature. We were able to watch chipmunks and a bunny rabbit playing the yard throughout the week. We really enjoyed coming back to the cabin each evening and getting in the hot tub. Again, the whole experience was better than expected. We'll be renting this cabin again!

The cabin was excellent.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was excellent. The cabin is well taken care of and clean. The easy access and privacy is great. You will not be disappointed if you choose a few days or a week there. It is close to everything but offers peace and quite for a most relaxing trip. Would recommend it to others as a wonderful place to stay.

Great cabin rental with all the necessities

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this cabin rental. Location was great and it was very clean. Also very quiet and peaceful. That porch is awesome to sit on in the evenings and early mornings (we had nice, cool weather). The only thing I might suggest is a flood light on one of the porch corners. Definitely would stay here again. Thanks so much to the owners and also for the poppyseed bread.

Owner's Response: It was my pleasure having you. Thank you for your most valuable feedback. It does get very dark here in the mountains which allows you to gaze at the most wonderful stars at night. There is 2 outside lights, one by the front door and one on the front porch by the hot tub. I will definitely check into a spot light. Thank you for your recommendation.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very clean and well maintained. Even though there are other cabins in the area, it is very quiet and private. The owner is very responsive to any questions and the delicious poppy seed bread was a wonderful treat! Madeleine's cabin is close to the main road through Maggie Valley so it is easy to get to all the great things there are to see and do in the area. Our only disappointment was Joey's Pancake House being closed. It was great to get away from the Florida heat and humidity for a few days. We look forward to returning and will stay here again.
