Waverley Lodge Awesome Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Four generations of my family spent a three day Christmas get together at Waverley Lodge. There's lots to enjoy for every age group. Immaculately kept, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Very convenienet to Catalooche Ski Resort and downtown shops. Owners were very nice and were available to us if we had any questions. Wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.

Great cozy rental in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Was everything as advertised! A perfect location for exploring the National Park and the surrounding area. We were also able to take evening trips into Asheville with no problem. There was plenty of space for our party of 9 adults and 4 small children. Lots of little details made this rental feel quite homey.

Early breakfast at Joey's and BBQ from Haywood Smokehouse in Waynesville were some of the food highlights.

We had two different power outages that lasted about 4 to 5 hours. The second outage extended into the early nighttime hours and the house could probably benefit from having some more candles/flashlights, or other outage preparedness materials. It was actually a pretty cozy experience but may have gotten a little freakier for the kids if it would have been any darker or if our small tea light candles would have run out.

Fully enjoyed the stay and would recommend to other friends and families.

Owner's Response: Thanks, guys. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Good idea on the flashlights and candles. For futures guests, they are now stored in one of the drawers in the kitchen island. We haven't experienced a power outage before. The power to the home is buried and therefore less susceptible to outages. Plus, we don't get as many thunderstorms in the mountains as folks normally do in the warmer, lowland climates. So you can expect to have a lower risk of outage than you probably have at home. But we're prepared now. Thanks again for the suggestion!

Wonderful week at Waverly Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Waverly Lodge. We chose this home because of its beauty & cleanliness as well as the great proximity for Asheville area activities and Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area activities. The kitchen, dining, and family room area are fabulous and that is where most of our time was spent. The master bedroom on the main floor was perfect. The layout downstairs with a family room area, pool table and game room were great! The master down stairs is a little tight for 2 adults, but it worked fine. Communication with Matt was great and we will definitely book this beautiful cabin again in the future!

Amazing Cabin and stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our fist stay at Waverly Lodge and we will be back. The owners are great, and the cabin is outstanding. They have done an amazing job of decorating the cabin and ensuring that you will not need anything once you check in. In addition to the beauty and amenities of the cabin, the location is perfect for either spending the day up at Cataloochee or driving down to dinner in Maggie Valley at night.

We will be staying here from now on.

Outstanding property and an awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion Christmas vacation at the Waverly Lodge. It was incredible. The home was even better than the pictures. Our three grandchildren took over the upstairs loft and that was their special place. My wife and I had the master bedroom on the main floor which was absolutely beautiful. Our adult children and spouses took over the downstairs bedrooms which provided a nice retreat. During the day, we all enjoyed the hot tub, game room and the beauty of the home. We went on many hikes, saw waterfalls and had a wonderful time. The home has everything you need. Matt spared no expense in furnishing the home and it was spectacular. We were able to enjoy the blessings of Christmas with our entire family in a beautiful mountain retreat and recommend this home as an awesome destination.
