About Gideon Knapp

Sherri and I [ Gideon ] have been married for 50 years. We have 5 children and 6 grandchildren.I am a retired carpenter and enjoy skiing,, surfing ,and astronomy. Sherri is a homemaker and an accomplised ventriloquist. We split our time between Maine, NC, and coastal North Carolina..

We are both commited Christians and spent several years in the mission field.

Gideon Knapp purchased this house in 2007

Why Gideon Knapp chose Maggie Valley

We chose Maggie Valley because of its driving distance to our winter home in NC. . Its mild winters and cool summers were attractions.

We picked this home because of its quiet location at the end of a dead end road ; we have grand children and wanted a safe location for them to play outside. The year round access was an important considereration as I enjoy skiing . The location of the home in proximity to both skiing , the Blue Ridge Pky and National Park were important to us. Also being in town and having access was a plus [ no 20 minute drives down mountain roads for a quart of milk !

I enjoy hiking , and there is an abundance of great trails in the area. Mall shopping and movies etc. are a very short drive to Waynesville. Maggie Valley itself has lots of restaurants and things to do for the family.

What makes this house unique

The home itself is nicely decorated with antiques and nice furry animals . It has a homey feeling , not that ' generic rental unit ' feeling that many rentals have.

It has a very large quite level yard for the children to play in . The large screened in porch is great for relaxing outside and enjoying the view.

Probably the most unique feature is that there is parking for up to five cars . There is a nice pond down the private road that has a nesting pair of swans in season. A fishing stream runs along the subdivision border as well.

We had a good stay. Gideon was very helpful. He worked with me on a last minute trip/reservation, and was available when I had a question. The house had everything we needed. Very comfortable accommodations. Very convenient to the ski area and tubing in Maggie Valley.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

After a long day of riding motorcycles through the mountain roads, it sure was nice to come back to a comfortable home. The house is decorated very nicely and has everything you need for a great stay. Beds are very comfortable. We look forward to coming back! Thank you Gideon for a great stay!

Large house with a great view near Cataloochee Ski Resort

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for all of our needs! Very close to Cataloochee Ski Resort and restaurants. Open and spacious with a gas grill and fantastic screened in porch overlooking a pond. I can only imagine the view in the fall. Home owner is very helpful with any needs that might arise.
