About Diannah Beauregard

This mountain home that I have called home for more 25 years now has been my sanctuary and art studio all these years. It has gone through many transformations. In the beginning, I lived upstairs and had my art studio in the apartment below the house - which is the studio apartment that I have recently made ready for guests.

I have always had a love for nature and it has been a source of inspiration of the artwork that I have produced throughout my live here in Balsam. The studio apartment was always my favorite space to create, and now it has become a guest house that I am both happy and proud to share with travelers from near and far.

Diannah Beauregard purchased this apartment in 1991

Why Diannah Beauregard chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

This is the place you will enjoy coming to if you want to get away and experience the quiet of nature. The tall trees in the neighboring forest are a real comfort and home to many birds. The natural beauty of my home will surely relax you and give you a peaceful, relaxing feeling.

Very accomodating

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over Thanksgiving weekend while visiting with friends and family. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed and more. Diannah is an excellent host who made sure we had everything we needed and provided fruits and snacks which was fantastic. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Welcoming and hospitable

  • 5 of 5

We didn't arrive until late but Diannah was up and ready for us. She gave a small tour of the apartment and was available if we had any questions. We would definitely stay with her again if we are ever in the area.

Peaceful, clean place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This VRBO is the lower level of a two-story house. The owner did an excellent job of preparing for our stay & of structuring our visit. The rooms are clean and comfortable. A few fruits and snacks were provided. Parking is right beside the door. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, coffee maker, refrigerator, etc. Internet service is good. The dwelling is literally in the woods and a walk at this time of year is refreshing.

The only negative is that there is no cable or antenna. There is a TV but only DVDs can be watched.

Owner's Response: I wouldn't actually say the dwelling is literally "in the woods", but rather it is surrounded by the forest which makes this place quite unique and special. I am glad that my guests enjoyed this about the property. It is tucked away while being very conveniently located to shopping and attractions. I am confused why a guest would make a negative comment about the TV. It is clearly stated in my listing that is what I have available. In any event, I am upgrading the entertainment (TV) to a smart TV, which has access to all the internet based viewing that anyone could want. Because of my location, cable is not available and an antenna for local channels would be useless because of the mountains. They prevent a good reception. The best alternative to having satellite is a Roku TV, or smart TV with an Amazon Firestick or Roku box. Having this will enable any guest to access what they want on television. I am sorry my guests were unhappy about this. It is always my goal to make sure the guests are satisfied with the accommodations.

Wonderful place, wonderful host.

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect. Extremely clean, all the comforts of home. Our wonderful host even had organic coffee, home made muffins and snacks for us. She discovered we were spreading ashes for a loved one and we arrived to find a very heartfelt card and note in our room. The atmosphere is so private and beautiful. Diannah even stayed up till midnight to make sure we were welcomed properly and made to feel at home. Cannot say enough good things or recommend this lovely place any better. Thank you Diannah!

Owner's Response: I felt truly blessed to have had Len and Wendy as guests at my place; honored that they chose the apartment for the short but very purposeful time in the mountains. It is always special when a heart felt connection is made and I really hope that they might return for another visit and stay a little longer. They were the perfect guests!
