About Cathy Liott
Our family has traveled to Maggie Valley for over 20 years. Every summer we rented a home with our children and enjoyed to many gifts the area has to offer ie. woods, wildlife, quiet time together, rowdy time as well. Many memories were made and we decided to purchase a family retreat home at the top of a ridge. We continue to visit with friends and family and would love to share our uniques experiences with you. Our home is very comfortable and appointed well with linens and cleaning provided. Full comforts of home, but a true getaway with unbeatable views of the sunrise and sunsets! We hope you'll consider meeting 'on the ridge' at Wind Spirit Ridge, Smoky Mountain Retreat, MAGGIE Vallley, NC
Cathy Liott purchased this House in 2005
Why Cathy Liott chose Ivy Hill
There are many attractions in a close vicinity. Theme parks, wildlife preserves, trout fishing, golfing, apple orchards, antiique shops, snow skiing, horseback riding at authentic Cataloochee Ranch, 30 minutes to Asheville airport and Biltmore mansion, gardens and winery. Cherokee Indian Reservation is also 30 minutes and educational as well as entertaining with the casinos and live theatre. We hope to the home someday.
What makes this House unique
There is a paved, maintained road that takes us to the top of the ridge and breaktaking views. Many rentals are hard to access on dirt roads that are not maintained. We feel we have the seclusion and privacy in the woods with the convenience of easy access. The main lodge at the bottom of the hill is on call for your needs.

Trip of a lifetime!
There are beautiful places all over the world to see and experience, but when travel knits families, offers time for restoration and reflection and leaves you better than when you came, you have found the most special place of all. We could not be more grateful. Thank you so very much and…
We are so pleased that Wind Spirit Ridge restored your peace with family and provided you with the opportunity for reflection in a tranquil setting. The mountains have a way of doing that!
We appreciate your patronage and welcome you back anytime!
amazing property great owner!
I cannot wait to stay here again, we had two families and the house was perfect. Spacious, clean, wonderful views. Perfect mountain getaway.
Gorgeous, clean cabin
This is by far the nicest and cleanest cabin we have ever stayed in (and we are sticklers about cleanliness, being former property managers). The views are awesome! We were able to catch some great camera shots of the sun rising over the mountains with the snow and ice capped trees illuminated. We received some snow, so we were thankful for our friend's 4WD in order to get up and down the mountain. Because of the chilly outdoor temperatures, we adjusted the heat registers in areas not being used in order to get more warmth flowing into the bedrooms. We figured this out after the second frigid night. The owner was great with communications. Thank you for sharing your lovely place with us!
We are thrilled that your visit was enjoyable. Yes, we are “sticklers” for cleanliness as well and we a great team in place to meet your needs and surpass your expectations!
That view is “killer”any time of the year!
Come visit again!
We had a great visit! The home is beautiful and spacious. There was plenty of room for all of us. We had two families 4 adults and 4 teens. The two master bedroom set up was really nice for more than one family and there was plenty of space for lounging around and dining. We loved the view from the decks. It is amazing.
We always try to exceed your expectations! Our two Master Suites work well with several families or generations. Glad you were able to use the spaciousness with teenagers and enjoy the mountains and surrounding areas. Hope you can visit with us again!
Beautiful fall getaway! Great location!
What a gorgeous rental! We loved our stay and loved the two master suites ! Everything was perfect and we can’t thank you enough ! The location at the top of the ridge had gorgeous views of Lake Junaluaka
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Wind Spirit Ridge. We strive to exceed your expectations and appreciate your feedback.
We hope that you will consider visiting with us again in the future!
