Maggie Valley is filled with a rich mountain history and one of a kind shops and restaurants. Located on the fringe of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and two national forests, outdoor pursuits like hiking, camping, biking, whitewater rafting and horseback riding are favorites. You can also head over to the Cataloochee Valley area of the park and see the elk, which have been successfully reintroduced into the park. The newly re-opened Ghost Town is about a five minute ride away.
There are plenty of attractions and activities no matter the season. You can hop on the Blue Ridge Parkway and take in the magnificent vistas as you drive through miles and miles of scenic views. After spending the day hiking or rafting, Maggie Valley welcomes you for a restful evening on the town for a night of good food, music and dancing.
Fall is a wonderful time to enjoy the outdoors either as a leaf looker exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway or hiking to a commanding view in Pisgah National Forest. When the temperatures drop, Cataloochee Ski Area (entrance is only two miles away) begins churning out the snow and grooming the slopes. Cataloochee consistently has one of the longest-running ski seasons in the Southeast, and features a variety of trails, from steep black diamonds to easy runs for beginners. Snowboarders can carve the slopes or try the latest tricks at the terrain park.
For the kids, try miniature golf or snow tubing, go-cart racing or snowboarding. Maggie Valley is also a great central location for mountain biking and road biking – head over to Tsali for a mountain biking day trip. The Blue Ridge Parkway is ideal for motorcyclists and driving tours, with spectacular views of the rolling mountains.

Marilyn Butler purchased this house in 2005
We bought this home as a getaway from our daily hectic lives and thought it would be a great idea to share it with others who are looking for a vacation that allows them to relax and at the same time take in the beautiful and majestic surrounding views. It also offers an opportunity to take part in other activities you may not get to do where you live.
We enjoy sitting on the porch rockers and just gazing at the mountains as we have our morning coffee or afternoon iced tea.
Stargazing at night is a favorite activity also. We divide our time over just relaxing or taking a walk in the area and visiting the area attractions such as the Biltmore Estate, Blue Ridge Parkway, white water rafting, ziplining.
The time we spend at Carolina Mountain Dream is never enough and it leaves us wanting to schedule our next trip as soon as we get back home.
