Overview

Maggie Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6 with library in the master bedroom.

Serenity Ridge is a newly renovated and beautifully decorated cabin ideally located between Cherokee and Maggie Valley and only one mile to the Soco Gap entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, known as "America's Favorite Drive." Also, entrance to the Great Smoky National Park is just a short drive away. The entire area is surrounded by beautiful mountains, lakes, waterfalls, wildlife, hiking trails, white water rafting, horseback riding, golf courses, and gorgeous scenery -- just to mention a few..

This private setting is in Hornbuckle/Cranberry Falls only 7/10 mile off Soco Road (Route 19) between Maggie Valley and Cherokee. The well maintained roads allow you to ride ATV's off your backyard to gorgeous views and waterfalls located right here in this private mountain community. The mountain views are great from the master bedroom, library, dining and great room.

This is a very clean non-smoking cabin with hardwood floors, eat-in kitchen, brand new fireplace, sleeper sofa in the living room, and new carpeting in both bedrooms. The master bedroom (queen bed) has its own bathroom and a nice sitting area/library. The second bedroom has two twin beds and an adjacent bathroom. You can barbecue off the back deck or just sit and relax in the two new indoor/outdoor rocking chairs. There is a fully equipped kitchen and convenient washer and dryer. All the rooms except the dining ( has curtains for privacy but you can open to experience the beautiful views) have wood blinds for added privacy. There are two brand new flat screen LCD television sets as well as a DVD player and a satellite dish with over 150 channels. We have provided many movies (DVD) for your enjoyment. We have just added a landline phone for your convenience.

Serenity Ridge is high in the mountains with an elevation of approximately 5,000 feet above sea level -- making it very cool with great breezes. There are ceiling fans throughout the house. Heating is provided by a brand new fireplace in the great room that warms the entire house in a matter of minutes, plus two new portable heaters when a smaller amount of heat is desired or in select areas.

There are peach trees and plum trees on the property as well as blueberry bushes. We just added a new crab apple tree and hope to have apples in the fall. The new fire pit in the backyard is for extra outdoor fun!

Serenity Ridge truly provides a relaxing experience away from it all but close to town and other attractions. There are many wonderful golf courses nearby, including the famous par 72 Sequoyah National Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. with spectacular views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, in nearby Cherokee. There are several other courses in Maggie Valley and nearby Waynesville.

LOCATION...LOCATION...LOCATION. Serenity Ridge itself is very inviting, but it is the special location in proximity to all the amenities that this area has to offer to visitors that sets it apart. The cabin is a one-mile drive to the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Haywood County expansion, with its extraordinary high elevations, offers motorists breathtaking views of seemingly endless mountain ridges and picturesque vistas, as well as hiking trails. Don't be surprised to see bears, elk, wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife as you drive on the Parkway. A list of recommended hiking trails and viewpoints will be available in the Information Book at the cabin.

The entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just a short drive from Serenity Ridge. Visit www.nps.gov/grsm. A beautiful drive through the park will end at popular Gatlinburg.

Pigeon Forge is adjacent to Gatlinburg, where Dollywood is located, as well as many other entertaining and shopping venues.

Maggie Valley boasts a rich mountain history and has everything you need, including unique shops and restaurants, parks, golf course, Cataloochee with skiing and horseback riding, Ghost Town, festival grounds, dancing, mini-golf, and elk viewing -- just to mention a few.

Cherokee is just 15 minutes away with fine restaurants, museums, Indian reservation, waterfalls, and many sources of entertainment, including the famous Harrah's Cherokee Casino. Be sure to check their website to acquaint yourself with the many restaurants, theaters, etc. as well as gambling in a convenient and beautiful atmosphere.

Downtown Waynesville (just a few miles east of Maggie Valley) is a vibrant town with fine shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants, tree-lined brick sidewalks, and many popular events.

Asheville is a little further east of Waynesville and has the closest airport. It is a large town with a lot to offer.

Our family has enjoyed visiting the Biltmore (an 8,000 acre estate in Asheville with beautiful gardens and very nice restaurants). Plan on spending several hours, and the headsets for a self-guided tour are a must. Tickets can be purchased through AAA, or call the Biltmore at 800-411-3812 for information on special fares.

Brochures and maps are available in the cabin to acquaint you with some of the extraordinary opportunities to enjoy this unique area of Western North Carolina.

SERENITY RIDGE has it all -- great views, ideal location, comfort and style -- at an affordable price. We hope you come and stay with us.

Maggie Valley Vacation - Fall 2009

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's eleventh visit to Maggie Valley, NC. Our family of four, typically spends two to three nights in Maggie Valley in the latter half of October. Our youngest daughter competes in a clogging competition at the Stompin Grounds in downtown Maggie Valley so we try to make a family trip out of the event.

We've found mid-to-late October to be the best time to observe the Fall colors and especially enjoy the way the town decorates for the season.

This was our first time staying at the mountain cabin and I would highly recommend it to others. The cabin is located several miles west of downtown Maggie Valley and about a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The road leading to the cabin is unpaved and somewhat steep but easily drivable. The setting is very tranquil and relaxing. We found the cabin to be clean both inside and out and just as described online. It easily sleeps six and the beds, including the sleeper sofa, were comfortable. There were plenty of blankets if needed. The gas heater kept the cabin comfortable throughout the night. The appliances were like new and in working order and there were plenty of plates, glasses and silverware for six persons.

Cell phone reception was suprisingly good given the location. The two LED TVs and wide selection of DVDs kept the kids entertained at night. The kids spent an afternoon at the Ghost Town in the Sky amusement park and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We all enjoyed strolling through the myriad of shops in the downtown area.

All in all, this was our most enjoyable vacation in the Maggie Valley area. This cabin is the perfect combination of mountain solitude and easy access to downtown Maggie Valley and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Owner's Response: Your review really means a lot to us since you have stayed in Maggie Valley so many times. I am so glad you and your family had a great time! You left the cabin very clean and were very generous with the cleaning lady. I hope you will come again to Serenity Ridge. We would love to see your daughter in the clogging competition!

Beautiful cabin and beautiful views!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying at this beautiful cabin. We loved it so much that we had to return. The cabin is very clean and beautiful. We enjoyed making meals and relaxing with the family. My daughters (ages 12, 9, 8) absolutely love the cabin and say they want to go every year. Ana and Lee are just wonderful people to work with and will answer any questions you may have. I can say we definitely found our home away from home. We will definitely be returning again. Thanks again Ana and Lee!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This location is wonderful, so much to see and do all around. The Biltmore House in Asheville is a must see. We enjoyed seeing the Elk around town as well.

The home was clean, adequate rooms, kitchen is stocked well but no dishwasher.

Bathrooms don't have any storage area for toiletries and need hooks for hanging /storing wet towels.

Overall the home is great and would definitely recommend to others. The owner was so accommodating and pleasant to deal with.

Fall hiking week near GSNP

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I rented this home for a week of hiking in the Smoky Mountains. The house was very comfortable and the sunsets were beautiful. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and we cooked most of our dinners there. It was close enough to Maggie Valley that we could also get take out from the restaurants there. We hiked trails in the southeast portion of the park as trails in the Cade's Cove area were about 2 hours drive from this area of North Carolina.

Serenity Ridge

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week at this property. It is conveniently located between Maggie Valley and Cherokee and only a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The neighborhood is quiet and off of the beaten path. If you are looking for a quiet vacation this is the location. We will stay here again when we return to the mountains.

Perfect location for Hiking/Driving Blue Ridge

  • 5 of 5

A mile away where the Blue Ridge Parkway crosses Route 19, the cabin was perfectly located for hiking to waterfalls and driving the BRP. It is also minutes away from Cherokee and Maggie Valley. We also could get to Asheville in under 45 minutes. In regards to the well furnished cabin itself, we and our 2 (young adult) children found it to be plenty of room for four. The two full bathrooms allowed for much more space and privacy compared to the nicest of hotel suites. I personally spent the majority of time while at the cabin on the deck overlooking the Cherokee Valley. Every morning the clouds were well below the cabin's elevation. The stars at night were great due to less light pollution than most US locations. The Milky Way was much more pronounced than what I usually see. The Master Bedroom is spacious with a reading room. The other bedroom is smaller but definitely comfortable and has a TV. The kitchen and its island allowed for multiple adults working on meals to be served a large table with great character in the dining room. Overall, a great place to centrally locate in the Smokies with quality amenities to save money making your own meals and sleep/rest comfortably.

I will point out cell reception is spotty (which I welcomed!) and the gravel road is steep leading from main road to cabin in private community. But the beautiful, quiet location made it well worth it.

Special Thanks to Ana for staying in contact throughout making sure everything went smoothly. I have rented through VRBO for 15 years and this property is clearly among the best I have stayed at. The combination of location, cabin condition, and price with a conscientious owner is hard to beat. We hope to return in the fall within the next few years.
