Wonderful cabin for year round or part time. New private well-no longer connected to shared well so will qualify for many loan types. New metal roof, updated insulated windows, wrap around deck on two sides.Rocking chair front porch, long range mountain views. Great for entertaining! Open floor plan with hardwood floors, floor to ceiling stone fireplace with wood insert. Beamed ceilings, loft overlooks main level. Flat space for outside activities.
Things I love about Waynesville, NC are the mountains, walking around downtown, the national parks are so close, rides on the Blue Ridge Parkway, going to the apple orchards in the fall, and the small town loyalty of the residents.
Waynesville has a lot of good food, but my favorite down home cooking place would be Clyde's, and if we were up for something different, Asheville is a short drive away. There are a few different grocery stores, and a Lowes and Walmart. Downtown has a lot of shops, and there are even a couple breweries in town now. We LOVE our mountain house. It really is our slice of heaven. We miss it so much. We lived in the house year round, and then my husband got a new job and we now live at the NC Coast. We would be living in the house still, if we had a choice. I loved watching the amazing sunsets from the covered porch, or sitting outside under the porch during a summer thunderstorm, and watching the lightning over the mountains. The leaves in the fall are amazing, and Cataloochee is so close, that the elk come up into the neighborhood quite often. We also really like trout fishing in Johnathan Creek below our house. I think our favorite thing about the area, is we are in a perfect location, but still close enough to go to Asheville.
When we bought our house one of the first thing we did was put a red tin roof on the house, which I love more and more, every time it rains. We then put in these amazing new windows, they are huge, which is really nice for looking at the mountains. We also just put in a brand new private well, so the house gets great water pressure. Our favorite hangout spot was the loft area, or in front of the fire in the fall and winter.
We have a variety of hobbies like camping, fishing, hunting, archery, and hiking. Waynesville is the perfect place for all these things. We love to go to Bowed Up Archery in Maggie Valley, as it is an indoor archery range. We also like to take the short drive to Max Patch for a fun day outside, and Cataloochee Ski Resort is close too!
I LOVE our neighborhood! All of the neighbors are super friendly, and willing to help you if you need anything at all. We all try to work together and help each other. Most residents are part time residents, so we watch out for the everyone's houses, when people are not there.
