About Benji & Ashley Boessel

Ashley has a hospitality background, and will charm your socks off if you get the chance to meet her. We are here to serve and hope you come stay on our ridge!

Benji & Ashley Boessel purchased this house in 2015

Why Benji & Ashley Boessel chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

We purchased this property because of the million dollar view, just a minute from downtown Waynesville. One second you are in a neighborhood behind downtown and the next moment you're on top of the ridge looking over the valley.

What makes this house unique

You will fall in love the views, location, inside decoration and outdoor living area. We designed this to feel like home, and not a weekend stay.

The lodge was very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to rest after a day of hiking and exploring. The hammock was very relaxing. We had planned to build a fire outside but every night we came home and sat on the big comfy couch and didn't want to move. Our favorite part was Gracie. Since we couldn't bring our dog with us, it was great to have her there to greet us every morning and evening. It was difficult to leave her standing at the top of the hill as we drove away. I will recommend this property and hope to visit again.

Beautiful accomodations, and view of Waynesville.

  • 5 of 5

The Boessel Lodge, was a perfect escape for the weekend, very close to Downtown, but the home's high elevation has a beaufiful view of Waynesville. The lodge was significantly more spacious than the pictures show online, the decor is beautiful and the home itself impeccable. As stated online, we had use of the bikes, and the hammock out front with a view of the mountains. Great outdoor space right outside our door, including the fire pit. Peaceful, private and very quiet. The full kitchen and roomy bedrooms made for a great stay. Information on local things to do was a wonderful tool during our stay. Our favorite bonus was Gracie, the lodge's outdoor bundle of love dog. We would definitely love to return for a stay at the Boessel Lodge, and highly recommend this home.

Comfortable but minimal

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Boessel Lodge with my boyfriend and sister for 3 nights while we were visiting Maggie Valley and the Smoky Mountain National Park. The location was very convient to both, and the hosts were very quick to reply when I inquired how long it took to get the museum. The accomodations were a nice size for 3 adults, but would be on the small side if you had children. The beds were comfortable, but the bedrooms definitely would benefit from an additional night stand (only one per room) and a dresser or table to put suitcases on. The lack of furniture in the bedrooms was clearly shown in the pictures, but you don't miss them until you keep your things on a concrete floor for 3 days. The noise from the owners upstairs was not too bad - we just turned up the volume on the TV in the evenings. Everything seemed clean, however I was the first to use the shower and I stepped on a plastic cover for a razor. Also, the water tasted awful - not the owners fault, but you should definitely bring bottled if you drink a lot of water.
