Secluded, Hot Tub, Pool Tab...
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
“A World Apart” is not your typical bare provisioned rental cabin locked away in a subdivision overlooking more houses than views. Its location was selected and the home painstakingly built by our family to take advantage of the best of Maggie Valley and Western North Carolina. The care and attention to detail is visible throughout.
Nestled on 5.5 secluded acres of Soco Mountain, our home offers a Romantic Oasis for Couples or the perfect Retreat for Families. Relax on the Full Wrap-Around Porch and unwind while enjoying the scenery and listening to the persistent harmony of Jonathan Creek winding through the valley below. If you're still and quiet, some of the neighborhood hummingbirds might visit and perhaps even an owl or two will announce the arrival of dusk.
The downstairs of our home features a magnificent Stone Fireplace towering over the living room, Satellite HDTV with DVD, broad-plank hardwood floors, queen sleeper sofa, slate bathroom with Antique Claw-Foot Tub and walk-in shower. The Queen Bedroom features a large armoire, Satellite TV/DVD/VCR, and its own door leading to the hot tub. A fully-equipped and well-stocked kitchen with slate countertops and peninsula bar in addition to the dining table for six offers plenty of seating and amenities for your family gathering. Screen doors and windows allow for Mother Nature's ventilation and the sounds of the wilderness without being visited by it.
Upstairs the loft features a pool table and French Doors that open onto a Covered Porch complete with Dining Area. In the Master Suite, unwind in the slate-surround Jacuzzi Tub while gazing out at the mountainside or enjoying the soothing embers of the electric fireplace. Satellite HDTV with DVD invites you to just lounge in the pillow-top King Bed watching a movie. The French Doors from the Master open onto a Large Private Balcony that is the perfect place to enjoy the morning's first cup of coffee.
For those who still feel the need to keep in touch with the outside world, free high-speed DSL wireless internet is provided. Please note that this service is wireless only so you'll have to have a wireless enabled computer to use the free service.
Wrap-around porches complete with rockers, swings, Adirondack chairs, charcoal grill and (our family's favorite) a secluded hot tub for 6 are really why you vacation in the mountains. The upstairs Tin-Roofed Porch plays an unforgettably soothing melody on drizzly afternoons.
On adventuresome days, you're a short walk to cascading waterfalls and only a few minutes drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Ghost Town in the Sky, the Cataloochee Ski Resort, Cherokee and Harrah's Casino. A late afternoon trek to see the Elk in Cataloochee Valley is a must do and in little more than 30 minutes you can be enjoying the Biltmore Estate in Asheville or the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad in Bryson City.

The North Carolina region
It's all about location. Our cabin sits just a few minutes West of Maggie Valley, Ghost Town, and Cataloochee Ski Resort. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs along the back side of the mountain. Even being so close to these amenities it feels as though you are on a quiet hiking trail in the middle of the Park. Our 5.5 acres is surrounded on all sides by vacant properties so that there is literally no other sign of civilization within your view. The only sounds are the wind through the trees, the creek running through the hollow below, and nature living the way it was intended.
