About Laura or Scott

We came across this "gem in the valley" and knew we were home!

We grew up in the plains of Southern Minnesota. While enjoying our deck we have views of the valley, pastures, farms, fields and Christmas Tree Farms all with the Smokey Mountains for their back drop. Here we have a glimpse of the past with a vision of things yet to come all from our deck! We have been blessed with 2 children and 2 grandchildren. We hope that someday they will come to love North Carolina and the Smokey Mountains like we have!

Laura or Scott purchased this cabin in 2013

Perfect mountain home. Well-appointed, close to town but offers the privacy of the country. Stayed here twice, and love it.

Gorgeous, CLEAN, perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of this 'cabin' (really a beautiful home) is perfect. Laura and Scott provide every comfort and need in detail. I especially enjoyed the view of the working cattle ranches below the back porch in the super-green valley. Our afternoon drive to Cataloochee was especially exciting, seeing the elk and other interesting sights. One caution: If you are from Florida, like we are, roads in Cataloochee have lots of unique features called 'turns.' We don't get many turns in Florida, but Cataloochee has lots them. Also, unlike Florida, the roads go up and down as well. This property is highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks Paul! Great way to describe the "turns"! Well worth the drive over to see the Elk, so much history with great views of wildlife! We want our cabin to feel like "home", thank you for your kind thoughts . The views of the valley with the farms are always changing and interesting in every season. The "Smoke" is so awesome in the morning, never the same from day to day! Great deck to enjoy a perfect cup of brew or a evening brew! We will enjoy seeing you in the future. Thanks again, Laura and Scott

Very nice home. Everything we needed and more. Everything is perfect condition and spotless.

  • 4 of 5

There were 5 of us. We all had our own bedroom and bath. Spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the view of the valley. (The property below is not very attractive, but we learned to look over it.) The owners were very in touch and available if we needed them.

The fire pit is a little difficult to get to. If you have to make many trips back to the cabin, its a chore (for those of us over 50).

We did a lot of cooking while we were there and the kitchen was easy to work in and had everything we needed.

We very much enjoyed our trip and ventured out to Maggie Valley, visiting a distillery and winery, plus traveled to Biltmore Estate. Had a great meal at Maggie Galley!

Would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you nice thoughts and comments on our cabin, Smokey Mountain Toy Box. We are very centerly located. You are correct, a day at the Biltmore is must. We hope you do leave Maggie Valley and Waynesville on your list of "must do". Thanks again! Laura and Scott

Very nice cabin.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and relaxing. It is centrally located to Gatlinburg, ashville and Cherokee. It is not as secluded as we are use to, but all in all it was a good time. Thank you for letting us stay in your cabin.

Charming Winter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast over the weekend! We traveled from Florida and the kids were so excited to see snow and mountains. The cold weather was a little overwhelming but we quickly warmed up by the fire. Enjoying s'mores at the fire pit was a highlight. The beds were really comfortable and included plenty of blankets. The cabin was cozy and clean and well-stocked. The owners provided helpful info for dining and shopping. Would definitely recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for you sharing your thoughts with us and future guests. We love to hear the stories of how new memories are made on the mountain! Glad you enjoyed the fire pit and that the fire kept you warm, or warmer!! If you enjoyed tubing, next time you will have to try skiing! Thanks again for staying with us! Laura and Scott

When your adventure ends and it is time to relax Maggie Valley and Waynesville have a wide variety of local cafes, restaurants, pubs, breweries, coffee shops and bakeries to enjoy! 2 wonderful grocery stores to bring home your meal to grill and just enjoy the cabin.

Great for the motorcycle or cycle enthusiast. If you want the 'on the go lifestyle' on your vacation you can find everything in Waynesville and Asheville. If more laid back hits you better you will find this in our Maggie Valley, Waynesville and surrounding area. Take in one of the many festivals and rally's at the MV Festival grounds only a few minutes away. The Biltmore Estate is a must see when you are in the area. Don't leave town without stopping to the Elk in Cataloochee Valley. You might even see some bears! Check with the North Carolina Park Services for details.
