Description from the owner
Welcome to the Wrens' Nest, our new, stunning, contemporary home In Maggie Valley! Located at 4300 feet elevation, the views are simply unbelievable. In the summer and fall, you will view ONLY mountains, sky, and clouds; in the winter and early spring, you can glimpse a few distance houses, but in all seasons you will have absolute privacy. Luckily, even with this elevation, views, and privacy, we have extremely easy access.
The house is located just off Fie Top Road, which leads to the Cataloochee Ski area, and which will always be snow free! The ski area and Cataloochee Ranch are less than two miles up the road from our home.

What Past Guests Are Saying
The perfect mountain getaway!
If you are looking for an upscale mountain home with great views, this is it! Very spacious, clean, wonderful views and great porches. This house makes you say "wow " in every room! From the amazing views to that special touch of decorating in each room, I promise you won't be disappointed. The owner was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We truly enjoyed our visit and we did not want to leave! Thanks for sharing your home and we will be back!
The house was beautiful and had everything we needed... The view was to die for (fall colors were at the peak). Judy was a tremendous help and answered all our questions. We would love to come back!

A picture perfect place nestled in the hills of Maggie Valley N.C. Truly enjoyed our stay in your home. Will definitely come back. What a beautiful home away from home.
The Wren's Next is the perfect location with the perfect scenery
The Wren's Nest is the perfect home for a large group (or small). We had 10 people stay for a week and the layout was perfect allowing many deck options and space for everyone to enjoy their own time. The home is just exquisite inside and out. The location was perfectly located with the most amazing views that you could only dream of. We highly recommend this rental to anyone who loves the mountains, relaxing, and exploring all the nature that the Smokey Mountains has to offer. The service we received from Judy Wren was exceptional and she fully prepared us for our stay at The Wren's Nest.

My friends and I are motorcyclist, we normally stay in motels. This time we thought we would try a house for a week of mountain riding. This wasn't a house, it was a home, it had everything we needed. We were a group of 6 guys, we had plenty of room. The owners were very easy to work with and very accommodating. The location is wonderful with great views of the mountains.

An Excellent Week in and Excellent Home
We, three couples in our 60's, spent a week at Wren's Nest the last week of July. The weather was a welcome change with temperatures during the day never going over 76 degrees and waking up to the low 60's if we didn't sleep too late. When looking for a central point to meet, Maggie Valley looked interesting and Wren's Nest was actually the first listing I found. After less than two days of looking at other homes in the area we all agreed this was the place for us.
My wife and I were the first to arrive; it was everything we expected and more. Never one to miss a chance for a joke on relatives that traveled a thousand miles, I called them at the asheville airport and said, "It not what we expected". After hearing several groans in the background I gave in and told them "It's actually even better than we expected".
Wren's Nest is truly an upscale rental. The kitchen will suit any gourmet chef with a 6 burner gas stove top, all six burners will slow simmer. It contains all first class appliances and a granite island the size of some small golf greens. Each primary bedroom opens to a deck and the windows have remote controlled window shades. The "Wonderful Room" on the main floor is glass across the entire floor, and the main deck is huge with room for two seating areas and a hot tub isolated at one end. There is another deck completely covered just off the dining area with a dining table some of us used for breakfast. The main room encompasses the kitchen, dinning and living room with a large stone fireplace and a cathedral ceiling 18 feet or so tall with windows to the top. The home has everything you could need - I ask the owner, Judy, if there was a waffle maker; the next day she said in a email "There is now". This is not a house for small children as the furniture is first class as are the decorations. However, it is a home to be comfortable in; the only thing missing was a butler. If you ever go to Wren's Nest you'll always want to go back.
Response from Judy Wren - 08/22/2013
We really enjoyed "meeting" these nice folks through email and are so happy that they appreciated the efforts we have made to insure that guests are happy and comfortable in our home.We understand their comment about the house not being for small children, but we have had many kids stay here...including our own lively grandchildren... with absolutely no problems. We think you will enjoy The Wrens' Nest as much as they did!

Wonderful modern cabin, 5 star experience
We stayed at the Wrens Nest for our honeymoon. The house is brand new, beautifully appointed, and luxurious. The finishes are closer to what you would expect in a 5 star hotel, not a house in the woods. It truly does have all the amenities of home and the some. The house also has amazing views and we really enjoyed looking over the mountains in the hot tub. The owners were really very sweet, we found a beautiful plant on our arrival congratulating us on our marriage. We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon and we would definitely love to stay at the house again.
Response from Judy Wren - 06/25/2013
We love the fact that these renters chose our home for their honeymoon, and it is gratifying to know that it works as well for a newly married couple as it does for a large family reunion. We believe that anyone who appreciates fine accommodations in a serene and beautiful environment will love The Wrens' Nest.
Cozy Family Christmas at the Wren's nest!
We were looking for a house to rent near Cataloochee ski resort, that was big enough for a family of 5, and nice enough to host Christmas dinner for visiting grandparents. This house was perfect! It was beautifully decorated,clean and organized,very spacious, kid friendly, and had everything you could possibly need when cooking. The view was amazing! I highly recommend The Wren's Nest!

Lasting Mountain Memories and more
My daughter found the Wrens Nest rental on line and we all fell in love at the first pictures. Home is exactly like the pictures and much more. Breath-taking immediately upon entry. Everything was there for easy access and enjoyment. We were truly guests at a 5* resort. Best linens, towels, dreamy mattresses, gourmet kitchen where we did a lot of cooking, and lovely china and tableware to set the perfect table each night and our Thanksgiving Feast. The wood bin was stocked for crackling fires and even a popcorn popper downstairs in the entertainment area. Comfortable seating everywhere. Lot of time was spend on the ample decks, watching the mist on the mountains or listening to the gentle winds coming up from the valley below. Truly an added bonus each morning. Each night our grandchildren were spellbound by seeing all the stars and constellations. The views, warmth and convenience was remarkable. We spent a full week at Thanksgiving with 8 family members, ages 6 to 87 and only laughter and love filled the home thanks to the exceptional ambience of the well thought out floor plan, decor and atmosphere. Short drive to many hikes, easy to difficult, at nearby Cataloochee and of course skiing. Easy jaunts into downtown asheville, Grove Park Inn, Biltmore House and historic town of Waynesville. My personal favorite has always been Pisgah National Forest with beautiful drives, hikes and waterfalls. Judy Wren is so pleasant and easy to work with. Wish we could return every month!!
Our family has been fortunate to travel often domestically and internationally -- we have no problem ranking this luxury location with our very top destinations.
Beverly Hills, Florida
The home was beautiful and the view breathtaking. Well equipped kitchen. Rooms were spacious. Lots of hot water. Furnishings very nice. Close to shopping, gambling, and restaurants. Very pleased!!!
We stay somewhere in NC mountains each fall. This was the best experience ever. The home is beautiful... if you are selective about simple beautiful furniture and decor, this is the place. The views are amazing...sitting on the porch we were surrounded by mountains from 3 sides. The place was immaculate and, despite its size, still felt cozy. It was very close to Cataloochee ranch and allowed us to enjoy horseback riding and their Saturday night cookout with local music. The nearby town of Waynesville was quaint with some good restaurants. I couldn't imagine a better place to stay and will definitely be coming back.
Fabulous accommodations with Incredible Views
"Wow!" were the first words out of everyone's mouth as we entered the Wren's Nest! And the wows just kept coming! The home far exceeded our expectations in location, amenities, cleanliness and comfort, and attention to detail.
Location: It's in a beautiful location just 2 miles up the mountain (straight up) from Maggie Valley, NC and just 2 miles (further up the mountain) to the Cataloochee Ski Center. The views are breathtaking and can be seen from almost every room in the house - and from the porches...incredible!
Amenities: The kitchen is well-stocked with any cookware you would ever need. There was laundry detergent available to wash ski clothes in the LG Steamer Washer. There was a comprehensive spice drawer available for a pinch of this or that and a cabinet with some essentials such as cooking oils, salt & pepper, and some other items. I joked that I needed to take a picture of one of the well-stocked and organized drawers so that I would be able to see what I was missing from my own home. Judy thought of everything and has made it available to her renters.
Cleanliness and Comfort: The home was immaculately clean and the beds were heavenly. The linens were such high quality! After a long day of skiing, we enjoyed the hot tub which was pristine and was already at the perfect temperature awaiting our arrival. The furnishings were comfortable and high quality. You will not want to miss the recliners in front of the 55" Hdtv!
Attention to Detail: Every detail was thought of! Judy was wonderful to work with and provided detailed information and instructions prior to arrival and left an entire binder of information, brochures, and recommendations for us at the home.
I told Judy that while we enjoyed the skiing, we found ourselves wanting more time at the Wren's Nest. It's so much more than a rental property. We were welcomed guests! We'll be back for another visit as soon as we can!
Absolutely Beautiful home - spectacular views
Every detail has been attended to. This house is one of the best we have stayed in. It is spacious, comfortable and very close to the Ski resort.

Breathtaking Mountain View in Convenient Luxury Surroundings
The Wren's Nest is beautifully furnished and is in pristine condition. It offers both privacy and total comfort for its guests. While skiing and horseback riding are close by, golfing at the Maggie Valley Golf Club was my favorite activity this fall season. However, sipping wine on the Wren's deck overlooking perhaps the most beautiful mountain range view in North Carolina was hard to beat! This impeccable mountain home is also conveniently located to asheville and surrounding towns. While we were there during the fall, enjoying the brilliant colors during the day and a crackling fire at night, I can imagine that the Wren's Nest would be the perfect place for a mountain retreat any time of the year.
Best getaway ever.
Wonderful views from all windows and the house itself is exquisite. It was very clean and everything looked new and it was tastefully decorated with upscale furniture.
We loved it and will recommend it to all our friends.
Perfect Mountain Getaway
This is a great mountain house with unbelievable views and great features. If you are looking for privacy, then this is it. There are no other houses near it. We are planning a trip back in the winter to try the skiing. This house is very close to Cataloochee ski lodge. Great hot tub with mountain views. I would highly recommend this house for a getaway! I would also suggest you try Maggie Valley golf course if you are there in the summer. Great mountain course.
Damon and Jackie Frost
Wow, what a view!
Our stay at Wren's Nest was perfect! It was difficult to tear ourselves away from this beautiful home with the amazing mountain view. Everything in the home is new and fresh with top of the line ammenities: large plasma televisions, snuggly comforters, warm stone fireplace, outstanding kitchen, hot tub and heated tile floor in master bath. We WILL be back!

Fabulous vacation home!!
We had a fantastic stay at this beautifully designed home in Maggie Valley. It was easy to relax while taking in the spectacular views from almost every room in the house or the several lovely wooden decks outside. Feels like the perfect private mountain getaway, while it's still close to lots of fun entertainment for the whole family. A great vacation spot!
Raleigh North Carolina
we recently enjoyed a wonderful week at the mountain top house in maggie valley, we have rented numerous homes in the mountains for the past 10 years and have found the BEST. the views are unbeatable the layout of the house is perfectly set up for guest that have two or more familys together, you can enjoy your company but also have loads of privacy at the same time. the location is central to maggie valley so resturants and activities are plentiful. but once your back at the house you feel like your miles from anything. we culdnt find one complaint about the house other than the fact we could not stay there forever. thank you soo much, we will be back soon.

Virginia Beach, VA
There is no better view anywhere. You sit on the porch or in the hot tub and
all you can see are mountains - no other buildings to spoil the superb view. I
especially love the sound of a little brook running down the mountain just off
the porch - but I have to admit I like brooks.
The house itself is new, beautifully decorated, and comfortable for a group of
people. I couldn't think of a single amenity that the owners did not provide.
If you are looking for all of the above, you couldn't go wrong.
Access and egress is easier than with some houses I have stayed in in Maggie
Valley. It is within minutes of the stores and restaurants of Maggie Valley.
I wish this was MY home! Can't wait to return.
I love this home! The Wren's have decorated it perfectly. My family spent most of the time enjoying the views from the decks and balconies. The open kitchen/living room floorplan provided a great gathering area for the family each night. The home has everything one could need and more. The linens were plush, beds cozy, the media room was great for movie night. What else can I say? Oh, and the hot tub was always clean and hot. Thank you Bill and Judy. We look forward to staying at your lovely home again and again.
