About Don Rucker

We live in Summerville, South Carolina. But, the sweet spot for us is Maggie Valley, North Carolina.

Don Rucker purchased this Cabin in 2007

Why Don Rucker chose Maggie Valley

Terri and I wanted a great view without having to drive up a mountain road to enjoy it. We ride a Harley Davidson so having a paved access road is very important.

What makes this Cabin unique

Soco Mountain View!! Conveniently located near the Blue Ridge Parkway and the National Park.

Everything is as great as the pictures and better. The lunch cation is fabulous for day trips in the area. Don’s communication is always fast, clear and helpful. We had a couple of hiccups in our travel and Don not only was helpful but went above and beyond to help us and ensure we had a pleasant trip. We are looking forward to staying st his property(ies) again! Thank you again for sharing your Bear Den with our family.
