About Debbie

Dave, Debbie & Garrett. We always enjoyed coming to the mountains when we lived in Florida, needing our 'mountain fix' at least once a year. Now we live here year-round enjoying the change of seasons, unlimited outdoor activities, breathtaking nature and small-town friendliness. Maggie Valley is a great place for our family.. how about yours?

Debbie purchased this cabin in 2007

What makes this cabin unique

We self-manage the property and take great pride in providing that personal touch for our guests. We like to surprise them with a little 'southern hospitality' - fresh breakfast goodies, a canopy for your motorcycle or a unique memento for a special occasion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

**from Guest comment card **

Thanks for making our 33rd anniversary so special! We had a wonderful long weekend, & it was so nice to see you guys again! In all of our 34-plus years together we have been many places & stayed in many cabins, rentals, and B&B's. For a couple of years, we did some property management on Hilton Head. Your cabin is totally the nicest one we have ever stayed in. Even some of the top-end condos on Hilton Head did not have the amenities and special touches (like treats for Jake) that you provide for your guests. Throw in the beautiful view, privacy and serenity-You just can't beat it!

Oh yeah, the very nice hosts are a plus too! Hope to see you again soon!

One of the most beautiful and peaceful locations we have ever stayed.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so very kind and gracious, providing everything we could possibly need. The landscaping is beautiful as well as the view from every window and deck / porch. We were very rested and rejuvenated during our stay. It is also located near to local amenities. We hope to return many more times

The cabin and the views are amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. The cabin is as wonderful as it looks on the website. Debbie and Dave are great hosts. They keep the cabin and property around it clean and very well maintained. All of the flowers and plants that landscape the cabin look great and give it a cozy feeling. We definitely had a wonderful vacation. Thank you Debbie and Dave for sharing your wonderful cabin with us.

Super cabin, super owners, super holiday getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Talk about a beautiful spot. Great views, easy access, close to activities and town, well laid out fully stocked kitchen and gorgeous and spacious extensive decks wrapping around the cabin with a fire pit and grills for a great cookout! The cabin has plenty of space and closets, with room for all of you and your belongings! The fireplace was toasty warm and it was wonderful coming in from a hike and having hot chocolate/wine in front of the fire. Our dog, Winston, loved the cooler temperatures and long walks in the fresh mountain air. Debbie and Dave are delightful hosts and look after everything perfectly. We will definitely be back. My favorite time is early in the morning at the bench on the path above the cabin, watching the fog filling the valley. Great place for two couples or a family with kids or a girls' getaway. Beautiful. Thank you! See you soon!

Wonderful as Always

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 17 days at this cozy little cabin, this was our 3rd visit and plan to go back next year( Lord willing). The view never gets old. Debbie and Dave are great, there when you need them. We have visited many cabins in the last 9 years and this is the only one we have revisited. The drive up to cabin is easy an always in great shape. We highly recommend this cabin.

A piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking!! What a wonderful, relaxing vacation! The pictures don’t do this cabin in the mountains justice. The views are out of this world especially in the morning with fog in the valley and the mountain peaks rising above.

There was fresh baked chocolate chip pumpkin bread and the fresh flowers upon arrival. The cabin was immaculately clean and well stocked with everything you expect from cooking/baking utensils. The beds are very comfortable. The outside area is perfectly landscaped and the multi-level deck space is peaceful and inviting. We really just loved sitting on the front porch enjoying the peace and quite, while being totally in awe with the hummingbirds. Every night we would sit around the fire pit listening to the sheep in the pasture below.

The area offers some very good places to eat, all within 15 minutes of the cabin. Waynesville is a great little town. Try Sweet Onion, Fat Buddies. In Maggie Valley try the Moonshine Grill. We went to Asheville and did the Artist River Walk and ate at the Tipping Point. For the beer lovers, there are some great breweries in the area.

Debbie and Dave are wonderful. They went above and beyond providing us with the most relaxing and gorgeous retreat ever. They take genuine concern in your comfort level and make the renting process easy. I needed some help planning a surprised 30th birthday party and Debbie gave me a person to contact. I want to thank Shannon for doing a wonderful job with decorating the cabin, making a special meal and making a lovely cake.

We definitely will come back to this magical place. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.

Our Return Visit Was As Good As Our First! Amazing Cabin With Great Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

It took us 4 years (only because of scheduling) but we made our promised 2nd return to this beautiful little cabin. It felt like coming home. First let me say again that working with the owners, Debbie and Dave , is a pleasure. They take genuine concern in your comfort level and make the renting process easy!

As soon as we walked in the front door, we felt right at home. Subtle changes were noticed, but the overall feel of the cabin flooded us with the great memories we had from the previous stay. Knowing exactly what we were getting gave us a very high level of comfort. The cabin was immaculately clean and well stocked with everything you expect from cooking/baking utensils to things you might not expect like a tool kit and first aid kit - It is those little things that make a difference!

As the photos show, the cabin is secluded and offers an amazing view of the mountain vistas and the valley down below. But pictures do not do justice. The outside area is perfectly landscaped and the multi-level deck space is peaceful and inviting. There is a small waterfall just behind the cabin that is music to the ears.

We only used the king bed and it is so comfortable there were days we didn't want to get up - and on the rainy Friday, that was home for most of the day!

From the zoning of the heating/cooling units to the couch and chair, it's all about the comforts like home.

The cable offers most of the channels you are accustomed to. The WiFi internet was fast and reliable. We have Sprint cell phones and they worked flawlessly! I was averaging 12 Mbps download on my cell when I forgot to connect to the WiFi

We brought our motorcycle and Dave and Debbie were kind enough to erect a canopy with a light to keep the bike nice and dry - Again, it is the little things like this that make a difference! We love riding in the mountains and the location of the cabin is perfect for us. The Blue Ridge Parkway is less than 30 minutes away and the Tail Of The Dragon, Cherohala Skyway and Moonshine 28 are about 1.5 hours away. Our favorite is the Blue Ridge Parkway!

The area offers some very good places to eat, all within 15 minutes of the cabin. We liked Rendezvous (Amazing fried chicken) Snappy's Italian Restaurant for pizza and thanks to Dave and Debbie for the tip about The Blue Rooster - Amazing Southern food!! We also ate at a few other places in Maggie Valley and must say we didn't have a bad meal at any of them.

We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you .... we are always pleased when we exceed expectations & especially for our return guests! It is our greatest compliment for guests to continue to return to the cabin when visiting this great area! There is so much to experience that is takes more than one trip.
