Waynesville House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms with king beds and 4.5 baths accommodates 8 adults special $ for 2

Elegant, fully furnished home completed in 2007 includes an attached garage with a one step entrance. The home is located at a cool 3300 ft elevation in Waynesville, NC in the heart of the Smokey Mountains. The location is ideal - just a 7 min. drive from downtown Waynesville- a small town but a big destination. Magnificent mountain views from the great room, gourmet kitchen, master bedroom, den, screened porch, open decks- upper and lower, and 3 downstairs bedrooms. The large deck space upstairs and downstairs allows you to enjoy the mountain air and be close to nature. Comfortable deck furniture gives you an excuse to nap and read while sharing the space with the birds.The quiteness is awesome as you listen carefully to hear the wild turkeys calling or the sound of a hummingbird . Some guests enjoy the large screened-in porch for outside dining during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And oh yes , the views do not go down with the sun ...as you enjoy looking down the valley at the distant night lights twinkling in Waynesville adding to the majic under the stars. The large gourmet kitchen which is open to the great room is well equipped for the chef . The guests will enjoy being able to gather around the 4x8 ft granite center island to supervise and sample as dinner is being prepared. Dining can be enjoyed on the screened porch, dining room ,or the large island in the kitchen. For grillers , a large gas grill on the deck is two steps away from the kitchen . This spacious home has vaulted beamed ceilings on the main floor . There are 2 stone fireplaces- a wood burning on the main floor and gas burning on the floor below. This home has 4 hi def TV's , Ipod / Iphone docking station , and a CD player. The upstairs great room TV is high definition with a DVR for recording your favorite shows in addition to a DVD player for movies .

Our Wayneview home is all about location, location, location, luxury, and view. Once you arrive at our home, you will not want to leave even though the easy access and proximity to amenities will offer you the option. Hiking trails are too many to mention and the Blue Ridge Parkway plus Lake Junaluska with it's 2 mile walk around are about 5 miles from our home. Even a hike up the road this home is located on can be quite invigorating . Our home is easy to escape to and yet secluded and private. We have attempted to furnish our home with everything you will need to make your vacation complete- without having to pack everything you own. Our furnishings are first class not second hand . We want our guest to be pampered,spoiled, and feel their vacation is very special and memorable. Our property manager is located a few miles and available to assist you as needed. Wake up to the majesty of the Smokey mountains where God and beauty come together .The linens are upscale and comfy. Each of the 4 bedrooms has a king size bed, a full bath and the access to the baths are private from each bedroom. The mattresses on these king size beds are so comfortable that they beg you to oversleep The master upstairs bedroom has an new (5-16,)upscale mattress.. Shopping, golf and gourmet food can be an added benefit to being in this location as well. Laurel Ridge Country Club golf course is only a mile away. For shoppers you will be only 7 minutes away from Waynesville - a lovely, little artsy town . A trip to Asheville is approximately a 30 minute drive. Free wireless is located at the library and coffee shops in downtown Waynesville and Hazelwood , A great excuse to enjoy these coffee houses in both locations We are sorry that we are not able to accommodate motorcycles in this community. While enjoying this home , please take time to smell and pick the flowers in the lovely garden. Sometimes there are even fresh herbs for the chef growing there .

A Wayneview get-a-way vacation is one of beauty, memories, and relaxation. Once you stay here , take in the view , and breathe the fresh mountain air...it will remove the wrinkles from your soul and you will return again and again.

Ann or Hollis Garris purchased this house in 2007

Why Ann or Hollis Garris chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

In visitng the beutiful mountains of NC we could not find a home with the views ease of access and luxuries we wanted. Many places we stayed in this area were so remote that it took forever to reach the home - once you were in the area. These remote areas made traveling after dark difficult and therefore we found ourselves staying in and not venturing out at night. Many homes had only the basic furnishings and we were disappointed each time. In the seven homes we rented while building our home , not one of them even had wine glasses.We fixed this disappointment of only the basics by building and furnishing our home with everything we felt was necessary for the perfect vacation.

Mountain Get- Away

  • 5 of 5

We had our yearly family reunion from September 28, 2008 to 12 October 2008. The vacation home has everything it claims to have. It is truly a luxury home. Upon arrival, we found the home to be emaculately clean and perfectly presented. There were no deficiencies or shortcomings of any kind. We are 5 mature (old) adults from Florida and Canada and enjoy hiking in the forrests and mountains. For us the weather was perfect, warm for the Canadians and cool for the Floridians. It was a very memorable visit and we can only give the highest marks and recommendations.

Perfect for a Girls' Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully appointed, comfortable home was perfect for a girls' getaway with my three BFFs. Each of the lovely four bedrooms has its own bathroom with every amenity one might need for a weekend away. The kitchen also was very well stocked. The views from this home are amazing and we're looking forward to a return trip in warmer weather when we can relax outside on the many porches. Having a garage to park in was a huge plus, as was being so close to Waynesville.

Owner's Response: Oh, we are so happy that you girls enjoyed our home ! Part of the pleasure of owning this lovely home is sharing it was such nice folks who can make memories in the mountains. Thank you for noticing the extras we have included in our home. We strive to have it so well equipped that you only need to bring your personal belongings. We are happy to share our garage with our guest. It makes unloading packages and groceries so easy.We were very careful in selecting the location for our home that it would be easy access to the precious little town of Waynesville.It makes shopping and dining out so easy. The view , the view is mesmerizing. I find it difficult to sleep because I am enjoying the lights of that little town below at night and waiting for the sun to peep over the mountains. Thank you again for selecting our home for your special vacation. Come again and again, Ann and Hollis

Lovely, relaxing Home Away

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleasantly pleased with this home overlooking Waynesville. Our group consisted of 4 'older' siblings with 3 spouses, and this place is ideally set up for 4 couples with the individual bedrooms/en suites. The home was immaculate, very homey, and obviously well maintained. Nice library for those relaxing days. Well-trained birds showed up throughout the day, altho' the hummingbirds weren't very attentive. The choice of sitting on the porch with or without screening was nice depending on the time of day. The kitchen was large and well-appointed. In fact, we 7 usually ate most meals at the breakfast bar. Beautiful view and we loved the Waynesville area. We would hardily recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Golf Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 2 other couples stayed in this lovely, well decorated and well furnished home for a week. Everything we needed was provided and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We played 3 different golf courses and enjoyed the Haywood BBQ, the Sweet Onion and Bogarts. We cooked in the other nights, utilizing the outdoor grill. The house is conveniently located to downtown Waynesville, the Blue Ridge Parkway and only an hour away to the Great Smokey Mountains, where we visited twice for picnics and hiking. We will definitely want to stay again and again.

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We visited in early spring of 2015. This is a large and comfortable home, but since it was just my husband and I, the owners allowed us to rent the main floor, which met our needs with a large bedroom (king bed), en suite bathroom, huge kitchen with open concept living area and a half-bath. There is a comfortable screened-in porch on the back side, with adjoining deck spaces off the master bedroom and the kitchen, with a gas grill. The property is high enough up the hill to be very quiet and has good views of the Smokey Mountains. This would be a great place for a larger party since the downstairs has three bedrooms each with a private bath. We solved the problem of no internet access by using a free app called "PDAnet" which allowed us internet access through our phone.

The most amazing place you will ever stay!

  • 5 of 5

It's easy to see why all the reviews have given this home 5 stars. This home is amazing, so close to Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Canton just to name a few towns. The home is tastefully decorated and absolutely beautiful. There are many restaurants nearby but we chose to prepare our meals in the fantastic kitchen which has anything you need to make any dish you want. The large granite kitchen island is the heart of the home and we spent a good deal of time there and on the wonderful screened in deck watching the birds eating from the bird feeder. The bedrooms were equally great each having it's own bathroom. No detail has been overlooked. I would recommend this home to anyone, we can't wait to go back. The home owners were wonderful to work with! Thank you!

Owner's Response: So happy to share our lovely home with nice folks. When we selected our home site , we were looking for view, view and accessibility to the wonderful small towns close by. To enjoy a outing to one of our precious towns and not feel like you driven forever to reach the area is a featrue we enjoy. Our goal was also was to have a home that folks could visit, and it would be furnished so completley that you did not feel you had to bring everything that you needed for comfort. So appreciate your care of our home and look forward to sharing it with you in the future. Ann and Hollis
