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.

You can easily park three cars at the top of the driveway.

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.

Great home and very convenient to area!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 young children and my parents. The home is well equipped for everyone and we had a VERY comfortable stay. We had the opportunity to visit friends in another VRBO that was located on top of the mountain for 3 out of the 4 nights were were there. Although their view was breathtaking, going up and down the mountain was miserable and nerve racking. We are so glad to have found Linger Longer and love how this home is nestled into the mountainside and surrounded by trees so you feel you're up there all by yourselves. It is very convenient to the main area which made it easy to venture out and about whenever we wanted. We were so pleased with this rental and look forward to coming back!

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a few friends came on our motorcycles. We were very happy with the road in, NO SWITCH BACKS!!!, just make sure you take the spit on the left for Creekside Drive. The driveway is a little steep but, nothing an experienced rider can not handle. Enough room for 4-6 bikes with covered area to park. If you trailer your rides in it may be a little tight. We loved the home. It had everything you needed to be comfortable. The beds were super cozy. Norma answered any questions / concerns I had in a very timely manner. Absolutely thinking of booking some time here to come for a ski trip.

More good than not

  • 4 of 5

House was very nice and comfortable. Best suited for those traveling without anyone with difficulties managing stairs as only one bedroom on main level which is on second floor. Hot tub was nice. Parking is tight but we managed to park a SUV and a station wagon. Very quiet pretty area if you like wooded lot but be aware there is no mountain view. Think owner should remove photo that shows two chairs overlooking a vista as it is not there. Summarized a very nice clean house and we enjoyed the spacious rooms and very nice kitchen

Owner's Response: Thank you for your four star review.. although we do strive to earn five. We do encourage our guests to fully read all of the information we offer and still ask questions should they not be sure about anything in particular. While we are glad your overall experience was a good one I believe the information you may have been looking for, is described on the web site.. As an example, the photo you are referring to states "One of the near by views". I guess I could do better by changing that to "one of the views in the area". We also state in the description that the home is "surrounded by forest". Further description of the home offers the following "The interior of this "three" story log cabin offers additional privacy. Each floor consists of it's own private sleeping quarters, full bath and bonus/sitting room. Two of the bedrooms are EnSuite.". So, yes, we do have stairs. In an attempt to do better, I will add to the description that we do not have an elevator. Be assured, the last thing we ever want to be in misleading. We want our guests to be happy. Thankfully, we generate plenty of business and we can do so by being be fully forthright. However, if we have let you down, please accept my most sincere apology.

Great Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything exceeded our expectations the cabin was private and wooded. It was very well stocked and had everything you need to complete your vacation. The owner ( Norma ) was extremely helpful and very pleasant. The cabin was very near Maggie Valley and just a short drive to Waynesville.

Great cabin in quiet NC town!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was just what my friends and I were hoping for. Large rooms, big comfortable beds and lots of amenities. Cabin was up to date will all new appliances and a functional hot tub and gas grill. It is located within minutes of a beautiful golf course and excellent restaurants. We were there to ride motorcycles all over NC and were not disappointed with its central location. Driveway is very narrow and steep so plan accordingly if you have a large vehicle or trailer.
