Why Signe Maximous chose Maggie Valley

Because it has the most beautiful views of any house we have ever seen. And, those views are from the deck or the living room which is basically a wall of glass. High ceiling in great room gives feeling of great space.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home because of the expansive living area. When you walk in the door, you see the views through an entire wall of windows. Then you look up and see that the ceiling is two stories high and that it has real structural beams that support a real tongue and groove inner roof layer. Go upstairs to the loft and you can still see the amazing views. As a matter of fact, when you sleep up there, the view of the sunrise is the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning.

Awesome experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Smoky Sunrise for some years now and just love it. The view of the sunrise is spectacular as is the overall view of the valley. Being one of two highest houses on the mountain means that we enjoy quiet and privacy on the spacious deck. The list of wonderful things about the house goes on and on.

If you want a true mountain experience Smoky Sunrise Cabin is a must

We vacation in the Maggie Valley area just about every year and use VRBO as our tool to find great cabins

The views from the cabin desk are beautiful

Booking with the owner was easy and communicating with her was no problem

Signe thank you for the use of your cabin and we will be contacting you again!!

Thank you

Don W.

A World Unto Itself!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin, so many wonderful thoughts go through my mind when I think of our stay at Smoky Sunrise. It is true that Smoky Sunrise offered us the most wonderful view of the mountains and Maggie Valley and sights even beyond. The house/cabin was more than adequate. Everything and I mean everything one could need or want was provided. Nothing was overlooked. The house was clean and everything worked fine. The only misgiving was that we could not get the fireplace to work, despite my knowledge of gas fireplaces. This one challenged me.

The drive up the mountain to Smoky Sunrise was and is a challenge but extremely doable. Driving up slowly with a AWD or 4WD it's a snap. driving down keep your speed in check and lightly use the brakes. Getting in the driveway was the biggest challenge but I charged into it from a short distance and got over the hump.

The house was always comfortable. Air Conditioning beat the heat and warm comforters on the comfortable bed kept the evening chill in check. Sitting in the hot tub looking at the magnificent stars was a memory not long forgotten.

If your reading this and are interested in staying at Smoky Sunrise I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. It was an experience we will not long forget.

Smoky Sunrise is a wondrous experience!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, making our plans with Signe was easy and expeditious. She was so thoughtful and considerate, accommodating, and communicative every step of the way. The cabin is spacious without losing the coziness, and everything you need is provided - in the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry, and all the indoor and outdoor living spaces. We arrived on the first night of the full moon and, just like the sunrise next morning, it was in full display through the cathedral windows of the living room and off the kitchen deck as well. We couldn't have asked for a more private piece of mountain paradise!

On top of the World!

  • 5 of 5

Smoky Sunrise is a great cabin with every amenity including a comfortable bed. The view is spectacular! We old people enjoyed the hot tub, the hummingbirds, and Trivial Pursuit. It is a perfect retreat for serious relaxing with plenty of sitting and dining areas. But, the owner is not exaggerating when she tells you to expect the steep drive up the hill. If my math is correct, Smoky Sunrise is about 1800 feet higher than Maggie Valley. ABV and GGV Charleston, SC

Great cabin and view.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was awesome for our family. The kids enjoyed the basement playroom, hot tub and the fire pit area. The adults enjoyed the sunrises and smokey mountain views. Twice on trips to Cherokee we were lucky enough to see elk and get great pictures of them. Overall a great family vacation.
