You’ll fall in love with Tom’s Stand, a remarkable log house on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Enjoy magnificent views from the front porch, or from the top of nearby Hemphill Bald. Go horseback riding at the adjacent Cataloochee Ranch. And at day's end, have a drink in the living room, with its cathedral ceiling and arched glass wall. In other rooms, you'll find cherry countertops, hand-hewn beams, whimsical touches and a wall of windows facing the morning sun.

This unique log home is situated at the foot of majestic Hemphill Bald, just a quarter mile from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The top of Hemphill Bald provides magnificent 50-mile views of the mountains.

How this house came to be is quite a story. Three generations of my family have lived in the mountains above Maggie Valley. In the 1930s, my grandfather and grandmother, Tom and Judy Alexander, started Cataloochee Ranch, a guest ranch just down the road from Tom’s Stand that has served as a home away from home for generations of vacationing families. I spent childhood summers there exploring the mountains on foot and by horse. Later, I helped my parents build our own home away from home - Tom’s Stand.

My parents, Tom and Jane, were respected journalists whose careers kept them in New York City and Washington, D.C. for much of their lives. But Dad’s mind was never far from his childhood home in North Carolina. In the 70s, he hatched a plan. Our family would spend summers on a plot of family land near the Ranch and build a log cabin. By hand. That log cabin became Tom’s Stand.

Each summer, our family traveled to Maggie Valley to live an entirely different life. During the first few years, we camped outside. We slept in tents, ate dinners around a campfire and bathed at Aunt Alice’s house down the hill. During the day, Dad would fire up his 1950s Air Force truck - called the Blue Goose - and drag massive oak logs from the surrounding woods. Back at camp, he’d hew them with a broad axe, notch them with a chainsaw and hoist them with a winch mounted on the Blue Goose. Those logs still make up the original structure of Tom’s Stand, centered around the dining room.
We worked on that original log cabin for years. We all helped. My cousin, Richard, and I built the chimney and the front porch. My Mom and little sister, Amanda, helped chink the logs. Dad built the main structure, and when that project wound down, he started building tables and lamps that remain in the home today.

As the years wore on, my parents decided that it was time to bring in professionals to help build a second and then a third addition to Tom’s Stand. Each addition brought its own unique charm and showcased the natural beauty of the landscape.

Today, your family can become a part of this history. You can enjoy mountain views from the porch. Then come inside, through heavy oak doors. Everyone loves the kitchen, with its high-beamed ceiling, hand-crafted cherry counters, antique gas stove and whimsical mural of outdoor life at Tom's Stand. You can then enjoy drinks in the living room, with its cathedral ceiling and arched glass wall. Later, you’ll want to soak up the warmth from the stone fireplace in the dining room before retiring back out to the porch to usher in the night. When you’ve had your fill of star gazing, head to the spacious master bedroom, where you’ll find more hand-hewn beams and a wall of windows facing the morning sun. Throughout the house, both inside and out, you’ll love Mom’s collection of western North Carolina art.

There’s also plenty of room for friends and family. Tom’s Stand has four bedrooms - the master, a second bedroom downstairs and two upstairs. There is also one bedroom in the rustic guest cabin across the lawn - a restored 19th century log cabin.

With its sizable lawn and mountain views, Tom's Stand is an idyllic spot for family vacations, small retreats, weddings and family reunions.
