Description from owner

Just below Heaven you will find Falcon Ridge - a smoky mountain vacation home nestled high above the treetops at 3900 feet in the heart of Maggie Valley, NC. The home is surrounded by a private wooded lot and located at the end of a long private driveway. There is a feeling of nature and tranquility in the peaceful, outdoor environment yet it’s close to all modern conveniences in Maggie Valley and surrounding areas. Get a bird's eye view of the valley below from every room in the house!

Falcon Ridge was built for the view- the incredible breath-taking views. Enter the house and you will find two master bedrooms downstairs. Both bedrooms have large sliding glass doors that take full advantage of the views. The bedroom sliders open to a private lower deck with rocking chairs and a porch swing, a great place to enjoy that morning cup of coffee. We provide you with bath towels, linens and comfortable beds for a good night sleep. There is also a full-size washer and dryer on this level. Head upstairs to the main living area and be blown away with the big, bright, light, open floor plan with views from everywhere.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, utensils and small appliances- everything you need to prepare a wonderful meal. The home has a wood burning fireplace on the main living area and is a great place to relax, read a good book or make smores’ with the kids. The patio includes a table which is suitable for enjoying a nice meal or playing games/cards with loved ones. You can barbecue on the outdoor deck using the gas grill then relax and soak away your cares in the hot tub under the stars. We encourage you to open up the door and go for a hike around the property to enjoy all of its natural beauty. This home truly provides you with all the comforts of home.

We welcome you to our very clean, beautifully decorated SMOKE-FREE home in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, with a panoramic view of 10 surrounding mountains. You will feel like you are on top of the world.

You will have streams and waterfalls nearby; a roaring fire in the wood burning fireplace; hiking and exploring. Sound like a little bit of Heaven? We think so too - a perfect place to get away from all the stress and turmoil of our daily lives.

HOT TUB under the stars; fireworks from above, breakfast with a view; relax in the porch rockers and swing away your cares. Read a good book, take a quick hike to the nearby waterfalls, or just relax and do nothing. The wildlife and Carolina birds invite you to bring along your binoculars for up close views. Time to step back and be one with nature.

Enjoy PEACE AND QUIET with a breathtaking VIEW, but still be close enough for last minute needs only minutes away. Shop for antiques, mountain crafts and one of a kind momentous. Meet and get to know the friendly, small town residents of this quaint little mountain valley town and view the beautiful valley from above with a view to be etched in your mind forever.

Summer temperatures at the house average in the 70's, even though the town of Maggie Valley may experience temperatures in the 80's. The home does have AC however it’s rarely needed. We encourage you to open the sliders and windows and feel cool breeze and fresh air. Great cuddling temperature nights - every night.

The last stretch of road to the house is gravel and has 3 switch-backs. It can be a little spooky your first time up and down if you are not used to driving in the mountains. Once you go up and down a time or two, you will be a pro. A 4WD or all-wheel drive is NOT required unless there is ice or snow on the roads. This home is not handicap equipped or motorcycle accessible.

“Great Time”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2017

Thank you for the rental. Great views and amenities. I wanted to let you know that my daughter said that there was a bloody towel ;one towel was not washed, just put into dryer, wet with blood. The other items; one fitted sheet and a bath towel had been washed but were stained with blood.. . those were the only issues, but we wanted to make you aware of this. Over all- they loved it and would go back again. There Honeymoon was wonderful.
