About Norma Rea, Owner

My family and I have been visiting western NC for over 20 years.. I finally decided that this would be the best place I knew, for a vacation home for my family, friends and to share with others.

I've been in the real estate business for over 20 years.. I've owned many rental properties and Love to share my home with others.

Norma Rea, Owner purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Norma Rea, Owner chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

I wanted something centrally located to all that western NC had to offer. I also like my privacy. This home fit the bill! I can't tell you how much we enjoy spending time on the porch swing, either catching up with friends or just reading a good book while listening to the babbling creek.

The floor plan of the home also allowed my family and my visitors to enjoy their own privacy within. Each floor has it's own bedroom, full bath and bonus or sitting room.

What makes this cabin unique

Our home will comfortably sleep up to eleven people. Three of the bedrooms (two of which are en-suite) are fitted with king beds while the bonus room has a pull out double sofa bed. In addition, there is a bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a single up top. All beds have premium mattresses, upgraded bedding and we've added additional memory foam toppers for extra comfort. If you prefer a firmer mattress, the toppers can be easily removed.

The home also has three and a half baths, family room with fireplace and cathedral ceilings, fully outfitted kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, dining room, loft with full bar, television, pop corn machine and washer and dryer. The downstairs bonus room is equipped with television, WII games, board games, Foosball table or a quiet place for a read.

The two sided, wrap around porch offers a swing, rocking chairs, Weber grill and picnic table.The downstairs porch offers additional seating and a Jacuzzi tub and fire pit.

The home has also been equipped with a key-less entry system. No more searching for real estate offices to find and/or return a key. Of course, Wi-Fi and cable with premium channels is provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the home in Maggie Valley! It had everything you could possibly want. Awesome for the kids(and big kids) was a popcorn machine, with popcorn included! My grandson couldn't stay away from it.

We were 3 families and having the different levels was perfect for people getting up at different times. Having your own space and own bathrooms was a must for us. It is beautifully decorated yet, serene and peaceful.

The front porch was a great hangout and especially with the early morning sun and coffee. We had little grands , 3 and 19 months and it contained them. Just perfect!

The hot tub was so pleasant and nice after a day of serious hiking.

We enjoy cooking and the kitchen had everything that we wanted.

The golfers enjoyed the Country Club course and being so close to it.

We own 2 vrbo's on Lake Murray in SC, so understand what is important to renters.

Norma, the owner, was great and so pleasant in our dealings with her.

I highly recommend this house for vacations.

Perfect family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We had a very wonderful and memorable Christmas week at the Linger longer lodge. We had 4 couples and 2 babies and there was plenty of room for everyone. Everything was as promised and very clean. Norma was so helpful before our arrival answering all of our questions promptly. Norma even had the home decorated for Christmas with a tree and all! We had 2 very small issues during our stay and Norma had both resolved within an hour-I couldn't believe it! Thank you Norma for the wonderful stay, we couldn't have asked for a better home.

Everything you need and want!

  • 5 of 5

Linger Longer Lodge accommodated the max occupancy for 7 days and was still roomy and perfect for our families. The best part about this cabin, which is why we picked it, are the many bathrooms available for this many guests. It matters! We utilized the entire space and felt very comfortable. The kitchen was beyond well stocked for those who love to cook and the decor and lounging areas were perfect for relaxation. The view from the hot tub and upper porch brings peace immediately. Great exploration trips near by for skiing, tubing or just driving the mountains to see water falls. We all really couldn't have been happier with our stay. Thank you.

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO for a family vacation. It couldn't have been a better experience! The owner Norma was incredibly available both before and during our stay at answering all of my questions. We had a power outage on the second morning of the trip. Within minutes of the power going out she had been notified by the power company that the crews had been dispatched to the problem and she sent me a text letting me know that it was being worked on.

The rental was exactly as what we expected, well that isn't really true it was better than expected. This is a perfect place for families to have a great time both in the summer and winter months. The kids went snow tubing one day and skiing the next, while my wife was at the Biltmore Estates which is only 45 minutes from the lodge.

Over all a 10+ vacation rental experience.

Thank you Ms. Norma for a great family stay!

Convenient | Cozy | Clean | Practical

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Linger Longer Lodge for 3 nights to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday. The owner provided clear, easy to follow instructions and access info upon booking. I'm very particular about cleanliness and this cabin exceed my expectations. This was the only cabin I have ever rented where I didn't find a single bug. The sheets were crisp and the hot tub smelled fresh. We also did a lot of cooking in and the owner provided every kitchen gadget and nice, usable cookware we needed to cook for 8 guests. All appliances functioned as intended and we had plenty of hot water. The location was perfect for walks with the dog and the view was incredible. In addition, the cabin is convenient to downtown Waynesville and was a short, scenic drive to Cherokee. We will absolutely stay again and recommend Linger Longer Lodge to anyone looking in the area!

It is hard to imagine how amazing this home is until you actually see it! Nestled in the Smokey Mountains it is the perfect setting inside and out. The owner has done an outstanding job of providing everything you could possibly want or need, and the location is ideal. In addition, the owner was wonderful through the entire booking and closing process. Thank you Norma!
