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 lodge in 2005

Why Cathy Liott chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

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 lodge 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.

Beautiful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a family vacation. We had 9 adults and 1 child. The house was great, big enough for everyone. The view was so beautiful from the mountain. We loved the cabin. Great walks around the property.

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

This home was well maintained and and the views were beautiful. Everything was pretty much as pictured. Upgraded plumbing fixtures and furnishings. Better than most vacation rental properties.

Just be aware this home is on 3 levels and you have to use two of the levels to come and go. Therefore if you have young children, elderly persons or people with disabilities traveling in your party this might not be the best fit. My 9 year old son took a pretty big fall down the stairs going from the kitchen to the game room. He wasn't running either.

Also, through no fault of the owner, a squirrel or some other forest critter somehow got into the walls of the house in the second master bedroom and was trying to scratch/dig it's way out and made that room completely unusable. This happened on day four of our seven day trip. That part wasn't great but again, you're in the woods. These things can happen. We were lucky enough that we did need all of the rooms so we were able to move all of our belongings into another room.

The only recommendation I would make to the owners would be to add a hot tub. It's too nice of a house not to have one included.

Amazing! Everything that we could want

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect for our stay, we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our vacation. 11 people spent 5 nights together along with 2 toddlers, we all had plenty of room but enough space to spend time together too. A word of advice though, if you have little ones, bring a baby gate or two. We brought our own but the cabin had one also. One of our little ones took a tumble down the stairs, he was fine with only a banged up thumb and lip but we should have kept the baby gate up constantly. Other than that we had a great time. We will definitely stay here again if we get the chance to go back to Maggie Valley.

Fabulous location, hospitality at it's best

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely perfect vacation get away. We had two families, and it was perfect set up for that. Two master bedrooms and ample space made it great for multiple families. I have stayed at many VRBO homes, and the hospitality here was the best ever. They thought of everything. Kitchen stocked with staples- spices, oil, salt etc. Everything from garbage and ziplock bags, to toilet paper that would last the full stay, bathrooms stocked with shampoo and body wash. Anything we forgot, was taken care of. Including flashlights when we lost power. The owners were amazing to work with, and very accommodating. We did wish we looked at the directions they sent us before blindly following GPS which took us to incorrect location, but that is our fault :-) I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Awesome views and lay out

  • 5 of 5

I will say that usually photos will make a place look better than it is, but in this case it was the opposite. The overall lay out is amazing and the amenities are great. The house is comfy and has just a wonderful layout for you to enjoy games, watch TV, lounge around, and enjoy the views. One of the best memories my group had was on the second to last day and we woke up early before the sun rise hit and could see the entire valley blanked in mist. It was just a surreal experience and I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy nature.
