Hi there! I'm Jim Grant, your host as you prepare to enjoy the magic of the Great Smoky Mountains! I am a healthcare professional (RN) by training, but have also owned a wedding photography business, and a small real estate firm. You are off to a good start by selecting Maison Ruisseau for your mountain getaway, and it is my pleasure to make your time here as enjoyable as possible. No matter which of our four beautiful seasons you have chosen, I'm certain that you will find your visit both relaxing and inspiring. THANK YOU for your business and I look forward to serving you many times in the future!

Jim Grant purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Jim Grant chose Maggie Valley

I ran my own real estate business for years until moving to Maggie Valley, and am very particular about any property that I buy. It has to be in the perfect location (always a top real estate consideration), and have lots of charm which will be attractive to visitors.

I fell in love with Maison Ruisseau due to its beautiful setting on a private rushing creek, separate game pavilion, beautifully treed and landscaped lot, rustic charming interior, and perfect year round access location (this is a big deal for rentals!). I think you will too!

What makes this cabin unique

Year round rushing creek right off your deck (master also opens out to it), huge detached game room with wood stove, huge flat screen TVpool table, ping-pong top, foosball, darts and more. Cabin has interior walls of rustic cedar, a huge deck, hot tub, cable TV, free wi-fi , and all the natural beauty you could ever hope to find, all in a peaceful, quiet, private setting that is easy to get to and convenient to everything!

Beautiful, relaxing and wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We visited during spring break the week of March 11. The home was even better than the pictures and extremely clean and well cared for. The owners Jim and Carol were very responsive and Jim met us at the house to answer questions and to provide tips on where to visit and dine. The location was perfect and had very easy access on all paved roads. The views were beautiful and the creek and waterfall provided additional ambiance.

The game room was fantastic for my teenage son who usually is bored on any trip. We were lucky enough to get a good 5-6 inches of snow upon arrival and the kids spent a few hours sledding down the driveway. Overall a great rental home that we will certainly book again!

Cozy cottage, very clean

We just loved it! Slept to the sound of roaring creek! It was warm for a ski weekend, but one run was open and the house is great get away! We didn’t bring kids, but they would love game room...We did. We’ll definitely be back. The owner was super pleasant and responsive...just perfect!

So charming and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This rental has it all. This is exactly what we needed for our ski weekend. Despite the abundance of rain- we had an amazing weekend enjoying the fireplace and hot tub and the sounds and beauty of the rushing creek. Everything was so clean. The kids enjoyed the game room too. We will definitely return!

This was the perfect get away. First it is a half way point for us to meet our daughter and son in law. Second the large game room with pool, ping pong, foosball, table games and a large flat screen tv. The cabin with two bathrooms, large fireplace to cozy up to. We will be back. Can't wait.

Quaint Cottage with a bubbling brook! Perfect place with a "game center"

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this cottage. We made a fire every night! Jim was great. Checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Spent a lot of time giving us suggestions of places to go and things to see.

We went into Waynesville to do some shopping. The main street area is so fun. We went to the top of the mountain twice to go skiing at Cataloochie.(It's right behind the cabin). Our kids spent 2 days in ski school and loved it. Asheville is very close too. We drove over for a day when it rained.

The hot tub is perfect after long days of hiking or on the slopes. My boys favorite part was the "game center". They spent a lot of time over there. We had family ping pong games and foosball play. Mom enjoyed sending all the boys over there so she could have some quiet time with the fire! Our family will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kelley for the nice review. The cabin is great for kids--lots to do, even in winter. Maggie makes a lot of snow, so skiing is usually pretty good here--I'm glad your boys were able to take advantage of it! It's fun in other seasons too--hope to see you back in the warmer weather for more outdoor activities. Jim
