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 cabin with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This large cabin was beautiful and had everything we needed for our family Christmas vacation. The owner was helpful, easy to work with, and added such extra details that made us feel like home. The views were stunning from every room. It was a very special trip and our family would love to visit again!

Great Location and View for Thanksgiving

  • 4 of 5

We had 9 people at the house for a long Thanksgiving weekend. The house worked perfectly for us. The house is well appointed and the view is awesome! The daily walks thru the neighborhood was very nice - just need to be in shape for the elevation! It was really nice to be able to use the garage to back our cars in and to unload our stuff - many houses restrict access to the garage. Cathy was great to work with - especially considering we were concerned with the smoke from the wildfires in the area. She provided me with local Maggie Valley contacts who were able to give me specific information. A couple of things that would make the house even nicer. The family room furniture could use a little upgrading, and a larger TV would be nice in the family room for football watching.

July Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had the house for the month of July. It was an exceptional place to stay. It was about 8-10 minutes up the mountain but the roads are all paved so it was easy. Unfortunately, the weather was not as cool as we expected, but not much you can do about that. The house was perfect for our friends and family. 2 bedrooms up and 2 bedrooms down. The upstairs bedrooms are much nicer and each have their own bath. Downstairs would be perfect for teenagers and children. Great outdoor view with a nice weber gas grill. Plenty of outdoor furniture, also. The owner (Cathy) was a pleasure to deal with. If I went back to Maggie Valley, I would definitely stay there again...Only about 10 minutes from Frankie's Italian Restaurant which is the best in the whole area.

Owner's Response: Dear Peter, It was a pleasure to have you as our guest at Wind Spirit Ridge. We are so glad that your family and friends were able to bless the home and visit in such a beautiful location. Hopefully the mountain air rejuvenated you all and we would love to have you back again someday! In gratitude, Cathy
