About Marianne Chinea

We are from Florida and love to vacation in our mountain home up in the Smokies. We have made incredible memories with our kids there and hope that our guests can enjoy it and have great times with their families at Copper Top!

Marianne Chinea purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Marianne Chinea chose Cataloochee Ranch

We visited Maggie Valley with some friends since 2001. There was just something about Maggie Valley that lured us in. It's a quaint little town with some amazing views. There are so many fun things to do however also amazing to just sit and read with an incredible view of the Smokies.

What makes this cabin unique

It is accessible year-round and the road is paved and maintained year round. We are very close to Cataloochee Ski and Ranch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We usually get a cottage on the outer banks of North Carolina, but it was getting a little "old". We had a 75 MPH trip from Eastern NC to Maggie Valley. There are 3 or 4 nice rest areas to picnic or get out and walk the dog, that are maintained by the state of NC YES.!! I did say walk the dog!!! Copper Top has the added attraction of allowing pets, and our little dog just had as much fun as we did.



This has been one of the hottest summers on record, but we were so comfortable with temps in the 70's and at night in the high 60's. This cottage is the most unique one our family has ever stayed in. If you see the picture of the cabin on the net, it looks like a tiny cabin. It has 3 floors and 2 are built into the side of the mountain.! It does seem that you are the only person on the mountain, but you are not. Nice road to the cabin . Our entire family went and we had more than enough room to park 3 cars.

It has just the right amount of kitchen you need on a vacation. You can make large dinners or small suppers and everything is there. Everything is so new. The island in the kitchen has a bar with stools.. There is a nice dining room table as well. The den has a wonderful fireplace which I was sad we did not need! Our 30 somthing children and spouses, and grandson immediately plugged in all their electronic devices. There was no problem using the computers anywhere because the cabin has wireless modems!! Tlie living room with fireplace has a huge cable tv with sattelite hookup.> On this first floor is a large bath and bedroom with Queen bed. and tv/ The beds were already made for us!! The laundry area is perfect with ironing board and iron. The first floor has lovely hardwood floors with rugs in stategic places. The decorator used a Black Bear Theme for many pictures, quilts, even a bear rug on the floor. The quilts and curtains in the home are gorgeous. I love quilts and a country feeling.



A door opens that leads downstairs to the most complete gaming room I have ever seen . There was pool, fooz ball, darts, huge tv with interactive games as well as almost any child or adult game you would want. There is a couch and chair, and it is just the right place for kids or guys who want to watch football games. A porch just outside overlooks the valley going down the mountain. There was a PSP game a

Great cabin and location

  • 5 of 5

My two college age sons and I had a great time in Copper Top cabin. We were there for a week with a late snow and unseasonably cold weather. Because of the nearby ski resort, the road up to the cabin was kept clear and presented no difficulty in driving even for a family from Alabama with minimal snow/ice driving experience. Major roads in the surrounding area were also kept clear. We used the cabin as a base for day trips out to Waynesville, Ashville, Cherokee, and Gatlinburg. We were able to do a couple of nice day hikes despite the weather (Blue Ridge Parkway was closed). Newfound Gap was opened near the end of the week.

Everything in the cabin was as described. The hot tub was clean and at temperature on arrival. Pool table, air hockey and fooseball provided evening entertainment for the family. The cabin is well laid out with one bedroom on each level. The loft sitting area has a great view and is a wonderful place for a morning cup of tea or coffee as the sun comes up. The kitchen was well supplied with pans of varying sizes, cooking utensils, coffee pot, kettle etc. Plenty of towels, bedding available. Wireless internet was available, but was slow and had spotty service. We did have the unfortunate experience of locking ourselves out of the cabin one morning. The owners were immediately available by cell phone and had a local contact get us back in within a little over an hour. Great service from the owners, and we do apologize for the trouble. Overall we had a great time at Copper Top!

We will definitely be back! Perfect place to stay for a family! The views are beautiful. The game room was a hit with my 12 and 8 year old kiddos. Beds were comfortable. We had everything we needed and more.
