The space

This cottage has been given much love and care by Deborah and her husband, Curtis, over the past eleven years. At the end of a private lane, the home is situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood.
The front of the home has an open deck with a dining table for visiting or watching the cook grill steaks or burgers. Making sure no one is left out of the conversation, you can leave the patio doors open into the kitchen/dining area. There is plenty of space for everyone.
The bedrooms are on separate ends of the home, for extra privacy. Two bedrooms have decks for private or intimate seating.
The upstairs master suite provides a screened in porch with a 5 person hot tub. You may invite your other guests to join you, or enjoy the privacy. Also, enjoy the luxury of sleeping on a king size hybrid bed of foam and springs. Soft sheets and covers are added for your comfort.
Two sets of towels are provided for each guest. Bedding is often line dried to provide you with the fresh scent of the mountains.
Another guest favorite is the cozy warmth of the wood stove, located in the kitchen/dining area. Warm yourselves during a chilly morning or cool mountain evening with the wood stove. Firewood is provided without fee.
The cottage is tucked away in the woods with the luxury of easy access to all the main attractions of the area. Guests can easily gain access to all the main highways leading to popular nearby towns, including Asheville, Bryson City, Cherokee, Maggie Valley and Waynesville.
While staying in the cottage, you and your guests will have the convenience of close proximity to important events, while having a private setting to enjoy the opportunity of peaceful time away from other activities.
Lake Junaluska Assembly amenities are less than a mile from the cottage. Here, guests may jog or stroll the 2.6 mile loop around the lake. Many enjoy swimming in the pool, paddle boarding on the lake, or playing tennis, miniature golf, and more.
Equally important, a short distance from the cottage is the Lake Junaluska Golf Course, an 18 hole, par 68 course, with clubhouse, cart rental and more.
With easy access to the cottage during winter season, guests heading to Cataloochee Ski Area will benefit from the convenience of getting to the ski slopes in about twenty minutes!
Other area attractions include Biltmore Estate, Historic Cherokee, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. There is also an abundance of dining options at nearby restaurants.

The neighborhood

The location and surroundings of this home is what made us want to live here. We are part of the Lake Junaluska Assembly. However, our home is located across the street. To enhance the privacy is the beautiful wooded setting on three sides of the home. Sometimes, you can see golfers up the hill, at the 15th green. Many times they are looking for a lost ball in the midst of the trees. The master suite and the hot tub are guest favorites. Next, and equally beautiful, is the newly remodeled kitchen/dining area. The open layout and seating leave no one out of the conversation while preparing a meal. Last, the easy access to US 19 and Interstate 40. Restaurants are minutes away within the Waynesville and Maggie Valley area. Otherwise, it's a short 30 minute drive into Asheville.

About the owner: My husband, Curtis and I were childhood sweethearts from the Midwest. When our children left home we decided to live out our own dreams. Curt loves to hike, and I love him, so off we went to seek a home in the Smoky Mountains. Not to be left behind, our adult children followed us. Now, our children and grandchildren reside in the area, and love it, as well! We live a short distance from the cottage and personally manage all aspects of it.
I am a National Board Certified Specialist in Education, as well as a multi-instrumentalist. I am a voice coach and teach private music lessons from my home studio.
Curtis is a Licensed Landscape Contractor and Wildlife Conservationist. He manages the grounds for Biltmore Estate, as well.
Our life motto is, "You never have a second chance to make a first impression." We apply this motto to the guests visiting our cottage by making sure your first impression is the best we can offer.
