About Jim Kerner

Born in Alabama, raised in Oklahoma and was living in New Smyrna Beach, FL. Though there are many beautiful areas, we always come back to Maggie Valley.

Jim Kerner purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Jim Kerner chose Maggie Valley

High enough to have spectacular views, but easy access. Right in the middle of everything we and our guests may want to do.

What makes this cabin unique

We have it all! Convenient to all the points of interest, yet secluded and quiet. You will love the sight of red crested wood peckers, the sound of owls, and groups of wild turkeys that enjoy wondering through. That first cup of coffee on the east side of the deck, watching as the sun comes up across the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have had the most amazing vacation here! Your cabin is the coziest home away from home ever. It is in the perfect spot for the best views, not too close to anyone else, so you feel along in the mountains. It is so relaxing with the furnace and gas fireplace to keep you warm but big glass doors and windows to enjoy the view without freezing. Thank you so much for opening your home to us, we are truly appreciative and would like to make this a yearly venture. We had such a wonderful time.

We wanted peaceful seclusion and that is pleasantly what we got...

  • 5 of 5

We settled in immediately to this quant and secluded cabin in the woods. We took advantage of grilling some salmon steaks on the grill with asparagus and opened a bottle of good wine and settled in to a fantastic weekend. We took advantage of late nights in in the hot tub looking up at the crystal clear panoply of stars since the lights of Waynesville were not close enough to occlude the clearness of the sky. Reading in the living room with the gas fireplace or napping on the couch set the pace for relaxing afternoons. Took a hike at very close Soho Falls one afternoon as one of our day excursions. Ate at Frankie's, a nice little Italian restaurant in Maggie Valley one evening, but ate in for most of our meals.

The cabin was set up nicely and it is homey, cute, quiet, and warm. Views were beautiful. Hot tub on the. back deck supplied beautiful views of the valley but since we visited in the winter, the foliage from the trees didn't provide as much screening from the only near neighbor as we would have liked. Jim mentioned that he would address that winter phenomenon and normally that the trees provide adequate screening. We positioned the hot tub cover against the deck rail when using the tub and it solved the problem adequately.

Great weekend, cozy cabin, very great value for a get away. Thanks Jim.

Perfect private venue to enjoy the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Thunderstruck Cabin. Great location for getting out and enjoying the mountains. Our host was exceptional. Jim will go out of his way to make sure your stay is memorable even if it means helping you retrieve a broken down ATV. We will be back.

Cozy cabin in Maggie Valley

  • 5 of 5

Although we didn't have the best weather during our stay, we still managed to have a great time at the cabin. The cabin is very quiet and cozy and it was nice just to relax in front of the wood burning stove/fireplace . Our dog loved it as well, as she got to explore the woods surrounding the property and made friends with the owner's two dogs.

This was a perfect getaway! This adorable cabin was easy to access, extremely clean and comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked, even spices and coffee filters. The panoramic view was awesome, especially the starry sky at night from the hot tub located on the deck. I loved the cute gas stove, and my husband loved the convenient location! SoCo falls is just around the corner. Also, Maggie Valley, Cherokee and Waynesville are only a short drive. I think I was most impressed with the pet friendliness of this stay. Along with a huge enclosed deck, you could open the back door for a fenced-in grassy spot for your furry babies! We will be back!

Maggie Valley Cabin Cranberry Falls

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was big enough for the both of us. Hot tub was great. Wasn't hard to get to. Road up was easy access. Nice view. Gas stove was very nice. Cabin was very clean. Bed was very comfortable. Both bathrooms had only shower stalls. No bathtub in either. Since my wife likes a tub bath, it was disappointing to her but she made due. We could not get any phone service while there on our cell phones and there was no land line phone in the cabin. We are both in our 60's and this was a concern for us. In an emergency we could not call out. There was a nice waterfall down the road not far from the cabin. Soco falls. Nice place for pictures. Overall we loved our stay in Maggie Valley at this cabin.

Owner's Response: Normally I do not respond to a 4 star review but these folks brought up a couple of concerns i thought I would expand on. They said they could not get phone service but that is only because they did not have Verizon. Verizon is the only provider that works well in the mountains and there is excellent service at the cabin if you have them. They also said they were over 60 years old so that tells me they might not even have smart phones for texting and probably have not even heard of "wifi enabled calling" where their smart phone can use our internet to make calls. It is true that both bathrooms only have showers but this is disclosed in the cabin details so it should not have been a disappointment or a surprise. Up here we have septic tanks and we drill our own wells so big tubs of water or washing your car puts undo strain on the water resources , especially with four guests.

Very nice cabin with all we needed during our stay. Loved the gas fireplace and hot tub.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our pooch while shopping for property. The location gave us a good sense of what we liked. Very convenient to Maggie Valley and Cherokee. Lots of cooking and serving pieces and a nice grill. Pet friendly. Will stay again if we haven't bought a place of our own.

Owner's Response: These folks were very happy but only gave us 4 stars. Why? I'm guessing the weather. Their entire stay was raining, foggy, misting and such and I do not believe they ever even got the chance to see the great view. That's the trouble with these three night visits. They go so fast.
