Maggie Valley House Rental Photos and Description

Secluded and peaceful, yet convenient to shopping and restaurants.

We offer 10% discount to senior citizens and active duty military service personal.

Grand View Chalet: minutes away from Maggie Valley Club clubhouse and first tee, nice walks, hikes, waterfalls, Lake Junaluska, great restaurants, White Water Rafting, Fantasy Golf, and Cataloochee Ski Resort, just 9 miles away, among many other attractions. Also, close to grocery stores, places of worship and the hospital. Waynesville, a quaint town 5 miles away, has great cultural events, restaurants, shopping, and is a great place to visit. Take a short day trip to Asheville to see the famous Biltmore House or try your luck at Cherokee Casino.

Grand View Chalet is at an elevation of 3100 feet; the view is magnificent. Relax on a tree-shaded deck with a day of lazy reading; unwind in the hot tub on the screened porch; enjoy an evening under the stars on the deck or by the fire-pit.

Golf: Maggie Valley Club golf course is less than a mile from Grand View Chalet. As you drive to the chalet you will pass several of its fairways and greens. Daily rates available.

Waynesville, NC: While Maggie Valley offers many good restaurants and great shopping, Waynesville is just a few (about 5) miles away and adds even more fine restaurants and excellent shopping.

About Paul & Kitty Long

Grand View Chalet is owned by Kitty and Paul. It’s the only rental/vacation home they own and manage. They purchased in 2006 after retiring to North Carolina. They became familiar with Maggie Valley when some of their children attended college in the area. At one time they planned to retire to Waynesville, which is very near Maggie Valley, but circumstances drew them to another part of North Carolina. They choose Grand View Chalet for its private setting and wonderful view and the fact it is close to shopping, good restaurants, skiing, hiking trails, and many areas of interest such as Asheville and the Smoky Mountains. After purchasing the house they remodeled and refurnished most of the house inside and out. This included new flooring and rugs, painting inside and out, adding central HAC, repaving the parking area and installing a new hot tub. They love to spend time there when they can and managing it keeps them busy when added to the many other activities of retirement.

Our overall experience was very good!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time in the area and in this house. It was well stocked and the layout was adequate however the loft lends itself to a lot of noise from down below. All beds were comfortable with the exception of the twin beds. (need memory foam or new mattresses). The deck was wonderful but the grand view was disappointing - you only see a sliver. the view may be better in the winter months when the leaves are off the trees. The little extras were nice - the body lotions and robes on back of doors. Well stocked with towels for both bathrooms. The sectional couch was a great conversation pit and we loved the big farm table! The lock box needs to be replaced as the little black slide is jammed and it's hard to roll the number pad. Ample parking with this house. The Fire pit and Hot tub were nice extras but we did not use either one being that it is summer and its already mighty hot! We would definitely like to be refunded for the hot tub cleaning expense since it was never used. Please let us know when we can expect this. Kim & John Nelson

Owner's Response: Dear Kim and John, Thank you for your review. We appreciated your positive comments. Kitty and I are meticulous in making the stay of our guests as comfortable as possible hence, we will consider the issues you have raised. Our hot tub maintenance crew is required to drain and clean the hot tub before new renters arrive; therefore, this fee is specified in the contract and agreed to once it is accepted. We have had guests that do not use the hot tub, but understand this is part of renting the Chalet since we have no way to determine if the tub was used. This is to protect you and future guests.

A beautiful place to stay and feel right at home!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and most relaxing. We lacked nothing in amenities.

The location was perfect for just sitting out on the deck and taking in the beauty of the mountains. At night, relaxing in the hot tub was very welcome after a day out on the trails.

Would highly recommend Grand View Chalet to anyone who wants a peaceful and restful stay.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Very nice! Perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay one week in July. Spent a lot of time outside on the large deck, and very much enjoyed the hot tub on the screen porch. The large loft was perfect for our teenagers, and they could also hang out in the garage downstairs with the ping pong table. Can recommend Cattalochee ranch for horse back riding, we also enjoyed a couple of day hikes on trails along the Blue Ridge Highway. Wonderful summer getaway. The house is in a great location and had everything we needed!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Grand View Chalet. The house was a great fit for a family of seven and located in a beautiful mountain setting. Ping-pong for the kids, comfortable beds, fire-pit equipped with wood, hot tub and everything was very clean and in excellent condition. We'd highly recommend this vacation home to friends and relatives.

Beautiful Mountain Chalet

  • 5 of 5

The Grand View Chalet was the perfect place for our group's ski weekend. It's in a great location with beautiful views of the mountains! Very comfortable place to stay for the weekend; it felt like home. I would highly recommend this to anyone needing a place in the Maggie Valley area. We will definitely stay here when we're back in the area.

Great get away and very close to the slopes

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this property and the owners were very helpful with directions and other specifics for the use of this property. The hot tub was an excellent way to end our days of skiing. On this trip, we had four adults and five young children, and did not feel cramped; the youngest child with us (age 4) slept in a sleeping bag in his parent's room, and there was still plenty of space. Recommend bringing a newspaper with you, as we did not bring any extra fire starter material, and ended up buying one at a local gas station after we burnt up our cardboard we had with us on the first night, but not a big deal, as the gas station is less than 5 minutes from the house. It took just over 15 minutes to get to Cataloochee Ski Resort, even with some snow the first day. If you ski there, beware of after about 1130 on the weekends for the masses from Atlanta that have no clue how to ski. Our daughter got taken out twice on accident (wasn't a huge deal, but still concerning) by skiers behind her that couldn't stop. Get there early! We ended up starting promptly at 0845 (lifts were already running, it looked like around 0830), and on Saturday decided to depart about 1200. If you rent skis there, either rent in town or get to the slopes early...the lines we saw for people waiting for equipment were very, very long. Paul was also very attune to the weather (storm was supposed to hit the night prior to us checking out), and he even called to let us know he would be able to assist if we had any checkout problems with road conditions, etc.
