Maggie Valley Cabins
If you are looking for neon signs and fast food, believe it or not, you have come to the wrong place. Their is plenty of that around the Smokies, but here in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, we like to think of ourselves as the quieter side of the Smokies.
Decades ago, people stayed in Maggie Valley as a gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains. A staging point to escape the sweltering heat of the southern sun. Remote, yet easy to access from most of the Southeast, Maggie still offers that and more. The guests of our 1, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom Maggie Valley cabins have only a short drive to discover the sights and sounds of western Carolina and eastern Tennessee.
There is quiet and then there is really quiet. Ask our knowledgable reservationists how secluded the cabin is and which is best for your needs. Some are close to town for easy access in winter and for motorcycles and others are on top of the world, but a little harder to get to. Some are nestled in next to rushing creek, and others are just wooded and private.
Cabin and Vacation Rentals
How do you know if you want a Vacation Rental or Maggie Valley Cabins. The odd answer may be based on how old you are. At one time, anything rented in the mountains was a cabin, no matter if it was built out of logs, bricks, planks, or stucco. Villas, condos, cottages, were all referred to as cabins by the guests. But times have changed, and with the advent of the big box international vacation rental sites, we have lost another piece, though it small, of our heritage. Now everything is a vacation rental. But Maggie Valley is still a throw back to the past in many ways. Our opinion is the fast paced sights of our neighbors is great fun, but people mostly come on vacation to relax and unwind, so that's what we offer. The bells and whistles are close by if you so feel the need.
Most people stumble across Maggie Valley in their search for a cool escape from the heat of the southern summer. Few realize that a destination so close to their home exists that offers a true four season climate, cool summers and winters cold enough to provide skiing 3+ months a year. But the secret is in the elevation. Maggie Valley is one of the highest valleys on the east coast with an average altitude of 3200 feet soaring up to over 5000 feet in the surrounding mountains. With the Cataloochee Divide to the north and the Plott Balsams to the south, the valley is remote yet easy to access from most of the southeast.
Close by, you'll find Cataloochee Ski Area, Cherokee Indian Reservation & Harrahs Casino, Gatlinburg, Tennessee, Dollywood, Biltmore House and Winery, and plenty more to do within a quick drive.
