About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bonus Room, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)


What’ll it be this morning? A round of golf at the Maggie Valley Country Club, or maybe a scenic drive with the family to ooh and aah at the sunset-colored fall foliage on the Blue Ridge Parkway? Some boating on Lake Junaluska, or snowboarding at Cataloochee Ski Resort? Maybe another cup of coffee by the crackling fire while you think it over? This is your vacation, after all, and at Carolina Mountain Dream, you’ve got all the time in the world.


1. Because there’s nothing like the Great Smoky Mountains in the fall, and CMD has long-range vistas from its spacious wrap-around deck. Because you’re only minutes from the slopes in winter and a short drive from Sliding Rock--nature’s funnest waterslide--in the summer.

2. Because our 3-bedroom home’s open layout and smartly designed master suite give you family time when you want it, privacy when you don’t.

3. And because you don’t need to overthink your vacation. CMD comes stocked with everything you need to feel at home, from shampoo and conditioner to olive oil and laundry detergent.

Wake up in the main-level master suite, equipped with its own full bath and luxurious king bed made up with the coziest Egyptian cotton sheets. Start your morning with breakfast on the open-concept main level, with its fireplace, and separate dining area.

Spend the day exploring the great outdoors or shopping in town, and unwind in a rocking chair with a glass of wine or sweet tea as the stars twinkle into view.

By evening, leave the upper level to the kids. The bonus room has books, games and an HDTV to keep them entertained for hours before they retreat to the adjoining bedroom which can sleep up to four in the two twin trundle beds.


Planning activities for a group can be a challenge, but not at CMD which is nestled into the mountains of Western North Carolina, in the heart of Maggie Valley. Foodies can eat their way through nearby Asheville, just 40 minutes away, where each restaurant is better than the last and a new craft brewery seems to crop up every week. History buffs are only 30 miles from the awe-inspiring Biltmore Estate. And thrill-seekers are perfectly positioned to explore the region’s best mountain biking, downhill skiing, zip-lining, white water rafting, boating and more.

And did we mention there are five golf courses within 12 miles of the house? Or just stick close to Waynesville for a Main Street, USA experience -- we’ve got a whole list of our favorite local spots to share with you when arrive. With eye-popping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Carolina Mountain Dream puts the excitement of Western NC at your fingertips.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me via telephone (786-412-0912) or email ( I would love to help make your trip to Western North Carolina the best you have ever experienced!

About Marilyn Butler

I'm available to answer any questions about our home and/or the location. So please, email ( or call (786-412-0912) anytime.

Marilyn Butler purchased this house in 2005

Why Marilyn Butler chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

We find that many of our guests are extended families, which is how we love to travel ourselves! The layout and spaciousness at Carolina Mountain Dream gives folks an opportunity to spend time gathered around the kitchen or grilling out on the deck and helps build wonderful memories together in a gorgeous setting. When you want to get out, there is no shortage of attractions and activities the whole family can enjoy year-round. We have owned our home a number of years now and still haven't visited all of the places of interest nearby!

Many of our guests return year after year to Carolina Mountain Dream. They know they will find everything they need here - they just need to pack clothes, pick up a few grocery items, and enjoy the comforts of their home away from home. Like having their own vacation property... but without the expense!

Even though we live in Florida and only get to greet guests by phone or email, they have been some of the nicest people we have ever encountered. Hotels can't offer the warmth and comfort an actual home provides. We want our guests to feel like family and hope that by making their stay as stress-free as possible, they will consider us a part of theirs too.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy sitting on the porch rockers and just gazing at the mountains as we have our morning coffee or afternoon iced tea.

Stargazing at night is a favorite activity also. We divide our time over just relaxing or taking a walk in the area and visiting the area attractions such as the Biltmore Estate, Blue Ridge Parkway, white water rafting, ziplining.

One trip is usually not enough to experience everything the area has to offer and many of our guests return year after year. The time we spend at Carolina Mountain Dream is never enough and it leaves us wanting to schedule our next trip as soon as we get back home.

Beautiful vacation home in Maggie Valley, North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful private home nestled in the woods with elevated views of the mountains located in western Maggie Valley. Access to the property was an easy safe drive. The house is close to the Blue Ridge parkway, the Smokie Mountains National Park, the Cataloochie Ranch & Ski Resort and various shops and restaurants. Waynesville and Lake Junaluska are only 10 minutes away and Asheville is about 35 minutes away. The home is very large and has lots of extra room. The kitchen was stocked with everything necessary for meals including a large table that had room to seat 10. The house has a large wrap around porch, with rockers and benches all with great views facing west. Perfect for sunsets!The house was clean upon arrival and had all the amenities as described. A gas grill was available as well as wireless internet, cable TV and a DVD player. The house has three separate bedrooms, a bonus playroom, a gas fireplace, 4 TV's and 3.5 bathrooms so no lines and no waiting. The owners were very helpful and provided many local brochures and tips for things to do in the area. The craft beer market has moved into the area with 4 locations in Waynesville. Tipping Point and Frog Level both have great beers and a nice friendly atmosphere. I would recommend this house to anyone who would like to visit western NC. Thanks Marilyn...we had a great time!

Owner's Response: Wow, Daniel! You described the house and the area so well, I think I'll use your review on my listing sites. Even if I don't copy all of it, I love the line that reads ...a gas fireplace, 4 TV's and 3.5 bathrooms so no lines and no waiting. We appreciate you taking the time to describe our place to future potential guests and would love to have you stay with us again in the future. You may want to experience Everview in nearby Waynesville. I could use some new copy :)

Beautiful, Spacious Home with Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our (too short) stay at this home! Each of the three levels has its own suite, each with a bathroom. In addition, the main floor has a powder room. The large farm-style dining table was perfect for our family gathering, and the porch is just wonderful. I hope we can return for another visit!

Love the view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Maggie Valley last Christmas (2015) and drove up to this house and were amazed by the view! We knew this was going to be our next rental! We were there the last week in August and it was everything I expected and more. When we were at the house, the majority of our time was spent on the porch/balcony enjoying the view. The house is great; loved the bedrooms, the master bathroom was awesome and love the open concept in the living area. I know they renovated earlier this year but I have to say they went cheap or the contractor cut corners. The floor has buckled in the center. If it were my house, I'd be pissed! The island is much too close to the counters and the fridge. I'd have it out much further. But it's not my house and we managed for the week we were there. We arrived on a Sunday evening and the first thing I had to do Monday morning was get a broom and get rid of all the spiderwebs on the railing on the porch! They were covered in spiderwebs and I don't deal well with spiders. They had to go, otherwise I wouldn't be able to enjoy spending time on the porch/balcony. Would I rent it again? Absolutely!!!! I'm going to paint our view so we'll always have it. Would I buy the house? No, because I want the sun on my porch in the morning and this house doesn't get the sun until late afternoon. During the time we were there, that was perfect because the daytime temps were in the 90's!!!!

I miss Maggie Valley so much!!!! I can't wait till we make it our permanent home!!!

Rent this house!!! You'll LOVE it!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write the review about how you loved our home. We’re so happy that in spite of some of the issues you pointed out, you are encouraging everyone to rent. However, I would like to take this opportunity to address them. Had you spoken or written to me directly about them during your stay, I would have been able to explain what is going on with each one and resolve what I could. 1. Cheap is not a word I would use to describe our flooring. In fact, having installed this type of solid wood in our Florida home, we are very familiar with it and based on that, decided it was a good fit for our Maggie property. It is also environmentally sound, since bamboo can be replaced within five years helping to save the forests. The flooring was installed in early spring by a very capable and professional contractor who also did all of the other updates. The only explanation for some of the flooring separating from the floating base is that it has expanded with the warmer summer temperatures. As soon as our housekeeper mentioned this to us, we scheduled the repair. But it has been pending because we don’t have the few open days he needs to do the work until mid-November. I apologize for not mentioning this to you prior to check-in, but will let all of our guests between now and then know about it. 2. We are the second owners of this house and not involved in its design other than the updates you enjoyed. Redesigning the layout of the kitchen was not part of our renovation project. The new kitchen appliances were the last items to be installed and are slightly larger than the previous ones. This minor loss of space was not anticipated and does not impede the use of any appliance. 3. Being on the side of a mountain does present our mingling with certain bugs/insects at times, spiders being one of them. We are aware of this and have a contract with Orkin who sprays on a regular basis. Although no one else has mentioned it being an issue this summer, I will have Orkin re-inspect the entire perimeter of the house and treat it as necessary. As communicated in our check-in instructions and in various locations around our home, we ask that guests contact us immediately if there is anything that we can do to make your stay everything you expect it to be. We would like to correct it in a timely manner rather than risk having you disappointed with anything about our home and delaying any action we have to take in order to fix it.
