Just below Heaven you will find Falcon Ridge - a smoky mountain vacation home nestled high in the treetops at 3900 feet in the heart of Maggie Valley, NC. The home is surrounded by a private wooded lot, and located at the end of a long private driveway. There is a feeling of nature and tranquility in the peaceful, outdoor environment yet close to all modern conveniences in Maggie Valley and surrounding areas. Spend some time in the tree tops and get a bird's eye view of the valley below.
Falcon Ridge was built for the view- the incredible breath taking views. Enter the house and you will find two master bedrooms downstairs. Both bedrooms have large sliding glass doors that take full advantage of the views. The bedroom sliders open to a private lower deck with rocking chairs. We provide you with bath towels, linens and comfortable beds for a good night sleep. There is also a full size washer and dryer on this level. Head upstairs to the main living area and be blown away with the big, bright, light, open floor plan with views on all three sides.
The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, utensils and small appliances- everything you need to prepare a wonderful meal. The home has a wood burning fireplace in the main living area and is a great place to relax, read a good book or make smores’ with the kids. The home is surrounded by beauty and can be enjoyed as you sit and relax in the rocking chairs on the lower porch nestled among the trees. The patio also includes a table which is suitable for enjoying a nice meal or playing games/cards with loved ones. In the evening, you can barbecue on the outdoor deck using the grill then relax and soak away your cares in the hot tub under the stars. We encourage you to open up the door and go for a hike around the property to enjoy all of its natural beauty. This home truly provides you with all the comforts of home.
We welcome you to our very clean, beautifully decorated SMOKE-FREE home in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, with a panoramic view of 10 surrounding mountains. You will feel like you are on top of the world.
You will have streams and waterfalls nearby; a roaring fire in the wood burning fireplace; hiking and exploring. Sound like a little bit of Heaven? We think so too - a perfect place to get away from all the stress and turmoil of our daily lives.
HOT TUB under the stars; fireworks from above, breakfast with a view; relax in the porch rockers and swing away your cares. Read a good book, take a quick hike to the nearby waterfalls, or just relax and do nothing. The wildlife and Carolina birds invite you to bring along your binoculars for up close views. Time to step back and be one with nature.
Enjoy PEACE AND QUIET with a breathtaking VIEW, but still be close enough for last minute needs only minutes away. Shop for antiques, mountain crafts and one of a kind momentos.

About Brandon Jones
Hi there! I was born and raised in South Florida and that there is where I still reside with my wife and 3 children. Living down here in paradise where it’s always summer is great, but when we go on vacation we like to head up to the mountains for a change of scenery. We like Maggie Valley, NC because you get you experience all the seasons. Our goal is to visit our home 4 times a year, one visit for each season. There is so much to do and see no matter what season it is. We have put a lot of work into our house in order to make it feel like your own home away from home. During your stay with us, we hope enjoy all the amenities that the home as to offer. We have one rule– take a deep breath, breathe in the clean mountain air, relax and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds you. *** UPDATE *** We moved from South Florida to Charlotte, NC in 2016. We fell in love with the mountains and wanted to be closer to the house. Now we are less than a 3 hour drive away and can take advantage of going to the house a lot more. North Carolina gives us a taste of all 4 seasons vs. Florida where its summer all year long.
Brandon Jones purchased this House in 2014
Why Brandon Jones chose Ivy Hill
You will love as do I love the altitude of 3900 feet and being so close and private in nature. The views make for a wonderful relaxing visit with so many great restaurants, friendly hometown people and all that nature has to offer. The spring is awesome with all the new spring flowers and rebirth and the fall is just as splendorous in colors bursting out in every direction.
What makes this House unique
Watching the beautiful Carolina birds soar by, with wildlife galore, as well as the peace and tranquility that our home offers with all it's privacy and seclusion makes you feel like Heaven. The hot tub on the deck is a perfect place to look up at the stars on a clear night, watch the fireworks from above as never before, and the clouds create a multitude of fascinating views after a small shower or slight temperature change. The cool night temperatures make night time so restful with the doors and windows open in the summer. Imagine having to cuddle under the quilts on a clear summer night, while the crickets and frogs sing their night time songs.

Exceeded all expectations!
We loved our stay at Falcon Ridge. The house was very clean and well kept, and the view was breathtaking! It was very family friendly, and there was plenty to do nearby. The hot tub was a wonderful way to end our evenings. We certainly hope to return!
Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments about your stay- I appreciate it. Glad you loved the house and the condition. We recently had new floors installed and the entire house painted- we do our best to keep it feeling new. There is nothing like starting the day with coffee in the hot tub or finishing it with a glass of wine. Thanks for staying at Falcon Ridge.
Peaceful setting with incredible view!
My husband and I (along with our Chihuahua) stayed at Falcon Ridge August 8-15, 2009. We absolutely loved it! The cabin was beautiful and had all the essentials of home. The view was incredible, especially from the hot tub. We enjoyed grilling out on the balcony and saw all types of wildlife including wild turkeys! The owners also called to check on us and the status of the cabin upon our arrival to ensure that we were satisfied and didn't have any questions or concerns. The cabin was also located close to several attractions: Ghost Town, Cherokee, Wayensville, and several wonderful restaurants,. We would highly recommend this cabin and plan on vacationing here again in the future!
Our goal is always the enjoyment and satisfaction of our guests who leave the mountains taking a bit of it all with them - while leaving and always wanting more. Thank you.
Another amazing stay!!
We really enjoyed our stay again! Best location and view!! Thank you for sharing your home with us again.
Wonderful views, good access to main road, short 5 min up to the house
We were wanting some place with spectacular views and this home nailed it. I love the fact it’s only 5 min up the mountain but you still have great views. This home is close to everything. We ended up sleeping in the room with the smaller bed since there was a tv, but that was no big deal to us. The home had everything you need and was in working order. Hot tub worked great as well and has a great view from it! Really enjoyed our stay and would def come back to this home.
The view from the house was awesome! The owners made everything very easy and simple and provided all necessities. We spent most of our time exploring and even took a trip to Gatlinburg one day. I didn’t realize how close it was to the city! The drive up the mountain was not bad and we arrived at night. I would definitely recommend this house!
House was great
Drive up scary but you get hang if it, just don't panic
Ha ha, yes the initial drive up can be spooky...I love reading the guest book and hearing about guests stories about the first time driving up to the house. After a few times up and down it's gets much easier (and your knuckles don't turn as white). It's the small price to pay for that million dollar view!!! Glad you enjoyed the house.
