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.
Also nearby is Waynesville is a vibrant, friendly small town nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with magnificent mountain views of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fine shops, galleries, cafés & restaurants are all within walking distance of Main Street's tree lined brick sidewalks.

Numerous popular events, parades & festivals occur throughout the year. The heart of Appalachian culture and heritage, Waynesville hosts Folkmoot USA, North Carolina's official international music and dance festival annually.
Waynesville is home to Haywood Arts Regional Theater, an award winning theater, and The Museum of North Carolina Handicrafts at the historic Shelton House; a general store, book store, bakery, chocolate shop, brew pub, Christmas shop, clothing, jewelry and furniture stores, mountain trout, mountain golf, mountain music & dance, clean air, clean water, cool summers, dramatic autumns, mild winters, lush springtime, and Southern hospitality.

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.
One trip is usually not enough to experience everything the area has to offer and many of our guests return year after year. 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.
We have been travelling to Maggie Valley for ten years now with our children during February "in search of snow", and have stayed in many different places. This house definitely ranks at the top. The location was good ~ close to skiing, restaurants, etc. The house itself is very nice, well maintained, spacious and comfortable. And also, which is so important when dealing with a rental, the owner was VERY gracious, helpful, and available. We really appreciated that!
We really enjoyed the cabin in Maggie Valley Marilyn was very accommodating and we hope to come back again soon! The location was fabulous and the views from the cabin couldn't be beat!
This home perfectly accommodated our group of 9 adults for a weekend ski trip. Spacious and yet still very cozy and all the amenities listed are there plus plenty of games and tv, DVD etc for evening time. The location is very convenient to Cataloochee ski area. Marilyn was very responsive and helpful. My favorite was to sit with my coffee on the porch early morning and take in the stunning view. My only points were 1) the lower level bedroom was pretty chilly but I had brought extra blankets so not a problem and 2) if you have a big group, and plan to cook, you may want to bring serving dishes. We couldn't find any big ones, oh and a knife sharpener : ) thanks for the wonderful stay!
This house is very spacious and has lots of room. It was well stocked with lots of towels, sheets, etc. The view was nice and it was quiet and peaceful. Being able to bring our dogs was a major plus. We all enjoyed our stay there. The only negative things I can say is that most of the pillows in the house need to be replaced. They were lumpy or flat and not real comfortable. The other thing is having to take trash to a pickup station which is a few miles from the house. That was a pain since they only have certain hours and it was the Christmas holidays (husband and son-in-law tried to take it Christmas day, but they were closed and locked up). Good thing we stayed until the day after Christmas or we would have had to leave it and be charged the $25. All in all the rental met our expectations.
This is a very clean, comfortable, and spacious mountain home located on a mountain side just above the town of Maggie Valley. We had four adults and two young girls and there was plenty of room for everyone even for someone in need of a place for peace and quiet. Marilyn is extremely easy to work with and will respond quickly if you have any issues or questions. We even received our maintenance deposit refund within several hours of checkout! If we return to the area we would definitely try to stay here again! If not possible we would consider renting the other house they own in the Waynesville area referred to as EVERVIEW.
I just spent a full week in the mountains in the most amazing home! There is honestly not one negative thing that I can say about this amazing vacation home. Things to do anywhere from 2 minutes away from the home and beyond. Everything listed is exactly what you get. The pictures look like they were taken yesterday. Extremely clean, well kept, cozy, spacious, breathtaking, etc. I would plan any further trips to North Carolina in this very same home, without thinking twice! Thank you to the owners!
