Situated on five beautiful private acres, The Gathering Place offers a private entrance suite, and ultimate privacy. There is a large, clean, natural pond, rushing stream, and a meandering creek. Ken and Laura, your hosts, are busy and active people, and you will be able to enjoy all the beauty, privacy, and quiet that you want. Although private and secluded, The Gathering Place is close to everything, and convenient to entertainment, shopping and enjoying nature.
“Ken and Laura have a breathtaking property, and their thoughtful touches are some of the best I’ve experienced. They provided snacks in the suite, and unknowingly, provided some vegan snacks! Once I saw that within 15 minutes of arriving, I knew it was going to be a great stay. They are super helpful and quick to respond; suggestions for local things to do, as well as instructions for everything for the stay. I never operated a hot tub but the instructions were super helpful! I was lucky enough to see 5 elk around and in the pond! Many overlooks and ability to get to trails were closed but I honestly was happy with staying at the property with all of the amenities that are provided! It was also a blessing to fall asleep to the sounds of the water flowing outside every night. It was an amazing experience and I most certainly will be returning in the future!”
Just Listed! Want to really enjoy the mountains in a beautifully appointed log cabin with panoramic mountain views? You have come to the right place. Close access to skiing, hiking, nature watching, zip lining, gambling, shows, or you can just relax on the deck and enjoy the scenery. Private and secluded yet close to everything. Near downtown Waynesville with fantastic shops and restaurants. Centrally located to Asheville, Cherokee casino, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg.
“We loved staying here! The entire cabin is super cozy and clean, and the beds are super comfortable! The view is spectacular! John was so helpful, friendly and easy to communicate with! He even allowed special accommodations for us when I told him we are traveling with babies! Would highly recommend staying here! One thing I wanted to mention was that we had a black bear roam around the cabin throughout the night and into the morning. We actually saw him at 7AM right outside the downstairs door, and found that he had dug through the trash cans up front and spread food everywhere! So just be aware and careful of growling noises lol which is what we heard and what made us run inside really quickly. But overall this is the perfect mountain getaway, peaceful, quiet, clean, safe and comfortable!”
Very private home and location. Enjoy sunsets in the hot tub with skiing at cataloochie less than 5 miles away. There is no WiFi or cable tv but there is a DVD player and some dvds. You can truly unplug and enjoy nature here.
“Vader’s ridge is an absolute DREAM! Everything you need in order to feel like you’re right at home except you are sitting on top of a mountain. The views are stunning, hot tub is wonderful, and the overall style of the cabin is just perfect. We did not lack a thing except a longer stay. Don’t waste any time and book the dang place!”
