About the property

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

RATES REDUCED THROUGH 2017

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.

WHY CAROLINA MOUNTAIN DREAM?

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.

CLOSE TO EVERYTHING IN WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA

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 (marilyn@mountaingetaways.net). 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 (cmtndream@gmail.com) or call (786-412-0912) anytime.

Marilyn Butler purchased this house in 2005

Why Marilyn Butler chose Maggie Valley

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.

Well appointed mountain side home for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5

Our family and our dogs (!) loved our stay at CMD! It's a beautiful three-story home at the top of a hillside neighborhood. It's a quiet yet centrally located home. We spent time in Asheville and did several days in the Smoky Mountain Natl Park. The Maggie Valley location was central to both. This home has Plenty of space for the whole family. We were only 4 people, but I can definitely see how a larger group with various generations would be quite comfortable here. The central living and front porch are awesome for meals and coffee breaks. Another big perk of this beautifully decorated home is that there are basics available to you to get you started so that the grocery store is not your first stop the night you drive in! The toiletries and certainly the coffee were a welcome sight after a long drive in. We loved this home for our family vacation and would love to visit again. The owners were also super nice and responsive. Do not hesitate to book your family vacation at Carolina Mountain Dream!!

Owner's Response: Robin, thank you so much for your review of Carolina Mountain Dream. We're so glad you enjoyed your time visiting the sites and came back to our place to enjoy some downtime gazing at the views from the porch. We hope to have you back as guests soon.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is definitely as advertised. The views were incredible. Very peaceful and relaxing. House is great. We had 5 of us. Plenty of room. Was close to lots of stuff. Not far from Asheville. Good food places to eat if you didn’t feel like cooking. Had some really good North Carolina barbecue. Was a nice way to celebrate our mom and dads 50 th wedding anniversary. And Marilyn has been great. Anytime you needed something. She answered you right back. Would like to thank Marilyn for sharing her home with us. We would definitely love to make this a yearly trip. Would definitely recommend this to family and friends.

Best of Maggie Valley!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been renting houses in the area for over 10 years. This home is - without a doubt - in our top 2 experiences overall. First, the owner is very responsive and a delight to deal with. Second, the house is like your own home away from home. everything about the house is comfortable and welcoming. the large porch overlooks a stunning view of maggie valley. - you'll want to stay out there forever! the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. the bathrooms are modern and supplied with beautiful linens. the beds/bedrooms are extremely comfortable and spacious. we loved everything about it. far enough away from the main road but very convenient to everything that maggie valley and waynesville have to offer.

personally, what i liked the most about the house was the newness and modern feel. most houses we've rented in this area have been older with an old musty feel. what a delightful gem!!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

this was a beautiful home with an awesome view of the mountains/valley. We enjoyed sitting on the porch admiring the view. The home was equipped with a couple of baby gates which helped keep our 3 & 4 year olds from going up or down the stairs. The home was equipped with all the kitchen wares we needed, except for containers to put our leftovers in. If we decide to travel to Maggie Valley again, we would definitely consider renting this house again. Also, Marilyn the owner, is very responsive by phone, email and text.

Owner's Response: Hi Denise, Thanks for your review of our home. Glad you were able to enjoy your stay and that our items for keeping the little ones safe were put to good use. We just spent this past week there and also noticed there was nothing to keep the leftovers in. It seems that some guests like to pack their food in them when they leave. But that has already been resolved with a new set of plastic ware. Please stay in touch for any future travel plans to the area.

Spectacular views from a lovely, well furnished and immaculate home

  • 5 of 5

We take one or two driving trips a year with our Aussie puppies; who are very well behaved. We particularly loved this property because we could walk our dogs past the property up into the wooded mountains. I drank coffee every morning on a beautiful wrap-around porch. We visited Cherokee and hiked up to Indian Creek falls. I want to bring my grandson to this house and watch him tube down Deep Creek. Also, we loved the cool weather with low humidity.
