About Kate Van Sickler

We rented this cabin for many years before purchasing it in 2013. It was during our annual visit we noticed a lockbox on the back porch. We instantly jumped on the chance to own this small piece of paradise. We gutted the kitchen and added granite counters and stainless steel appliances. We continue to make improvements to our slice of paradise. Our future projects will be an outside fire pit and lounge area.

Why Kate Van Sickler chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

We love the location and the view. We keep this as home base while we continue to explore western North Carolina. Close to Waynesville, Sylva, Canton, Maggie Valley etc.

What makes this cabin unique

We loved the idea of owning a log home. We especially love sitting on the back porch listening to the sounds of the river. Taking walks down by the river at Rivermont ~simply never gets old. During the cooler months - there is nothing better than a crackling fire in the wood burning fireplace. MAX guest 6

Great little cabin in a perfect location

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was small but cute and had everything we need. The location was wonderful with a wonderful stream to play in just short walk away. My only criticism is there was some things that clearly needed to be cleaned more thoroughly. There was moldy water in the coffee pot, the garbage can was moldy and smelled a lot and there was a hairband on the floor under the table which to me means a good vacuuming wasn't done before we arrived. Maybe change cleaning companies and get a good deep clean done.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that our cleaning service seemed to not pay attention to the details.

Wonderful mountian experience!

  • 5 of 5

Kates home is perfection! The cabin is clean and has everything you could want or need. Our 3 teens enjoyed the river access and the neighbors are so nice. We loved the rustic updated décor of the home and were so comfortable that we hated to leave on Tuesday. We hope to be able to come back again in the fall. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us, Lois & David Lamb

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, new baby and dogs took a 4 day get-away to this cabin. We had a great time and enjoyed the remote location. The cabin itself was very nice and had plenty of space. We liked the layout and enjoyed the porch for breakfast and dinner every day. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay.

Great stay....Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer!!

  • 5 of 5

The rental was just as the listing stated. We had a great stay. Very clean, modern home with a rustic cabin feel. Loved all the woodwork. The address plugged into the GPS took us right to the rental. Wifi worked great. Like most multilevel homes the bottom floors are colder than the upper floors. Enjoyed the mornings drinking coffee on the deck and admiring the great view of the mountains. Could hear the bubbling creek at night when the windows were open. We definitely would stay again !

Excellent Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This home did not disappoint! Came into town for the Lake Logan Triathlon Festival and enjoyed every minute. Open the windows and listen to the river down below. Cell service is limited which is exactly what you want and need with a great cabin in the mountains. We are already telling our friends and family about this great spot. SUper close, yet far enough away from town. Just a short drive to the Parkway or to Sliding Rock or Looking Glass Falls.

We brought our college age children and they had a blast as well. We traveled to downtown Waynesville several times and ate at the fantastic restaurants and the ladies shopped.

We initially had a little trouble access the speedy wi-fi and the owner was super 'johnny-on-the-spot' and took care of us immediately!

Seriously can't recommend this place enough! This is definitely on our short list next time we are in the mountains. if I'm racing at Lake Logan I'm staying at River Roost!

Nearest Airport
35 Miles
Car: necessary

Rivermont is located on 70 acres nestled in the smoky mountains- Located just south east of WAYNESVILLE and ten miles from the entrance of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Swimming, tubing and fishing in the river is sure to produce wonderful memories. Waynesville has fun filled festivals in October. Close by Maggie Valley- and Asheville ~ this location is an ideal place.
