About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6 - 9 people

Creek 'n' Woods I is a Smoky Mountain vacation rental cabin in Maggie Valley, NC. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin sleeps 6 - 9 people, and is fully furnished-all you need to bring are your clothes and food. The cabin is located on a creek (very kid friendly) in the woods, and whether you're sitting on the large open deck on the back of the cabin, the smaller open deck off the second floor, or are sitting in the rocking chairs on the L-shaped covered porch-the soothing sounds of the creek can be heard. The hot tub is also on the back deck, and at the end of a full day of exploring all that there is to do in Haywood County and the surrounding areas, it's a great place to submerge and soak away the cares of the day (or the sore muscles and possible bruises from skiing or snowboarding). The gas grill and an extra tank are on the back deck for your use. Creek 'n Woods I is on a paved road and accessible year round.

The kitchen is fully equipped. There are movies, puzzles, books, and games for your enjoyment, and WiFi and expanded cable are provided.

We take great care of our guests from the moment you call to make your reservation to meeting you upon your arrival no matter what time of day or night that might be. After driving 4-13 hours the last thing visitors to our area need to face is the 'hunt for the cabin'. When we meet you, we take you to the cabin so that we can explain how everything works, provide directions to the grocery store, suggestions on where to eat, and what to do. For our motorcycle guests, we will even do your grocery shopping if you email us your list in advance thus eliminating multiple trips to the store for 'provisions'. If someone in your group is celebrating a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, graduation, marriage proposal, wedding) we will do whatever we can to help make the occasion special by providing a cake, decorations or the names of local businesses who can meet your needs.

Creek 'n Woods Vacation Rentals is committed to making your vacation memorable, special and all that you hoped it would be. When your calendar, mind and body need some mountain time and a getaway, call us!

About Tom & Sue Knapko

We got married in Maggie Valley in 1996. We fell in love with the mountains and decided that we had to move here from Ft. Myers, Fl. Life is wonderful here!!!

Tom & Sue Knapko purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Tom & Sue Knapko chose Maggie Valley

Maggie Valley gives people the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. There is no better place to vacation than by a rushing stream, listening to the white noise of the waters and looking into the faces of the surrounding mountains. Why not have a vacation rental in a place like this?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was simply wonderful - the accomodations, the view - everything.

The cabin is exactly as advertised! We love it!

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Tom & Sue met us at an agreed upon location in Maggie Valley and escorted us to the cabin to welcome us and show us around! One of their traditions is to have their guests take a picture with their welcome bear and the next day they emailed us the pic! Since we mentioned we were celebrating my Mom’s 90th Birthday, Tom & Sue went over and beyond and presented her with a birthday cake. Needless to say Mom was very impressed!

The cabin was just as advertised, very clean and equipped with everything one needed for an awesome stay. Tom and Sue stayed in touch during our stay to make sure that we were having a great time at the cabin. My four year old granddaughter really liked wading in the creek behind the cabin. Oh and did I mention they made us fresh baked cookies? We can’t wait to book this cabin again!

This terrific cabin is EXACTLY as it is described. Tom and Sue (owners) were very attentive: promptly answering questions, making a very easy booking process, escorting us to the property, and giving us a tour of the home so we would know all this well-outfitted cabin offered. We are pretty darn particular and were not disappointed -- everything was clean, in good repair, attractively decorated, and efficiently arranged. The beds were super comfortable, as was the living room seating. A large dining table is a must for our crew and this one was perfect. The owners have thought of everything: large towels for the hot tub, every kitchen gadget, full sets of dishes, glasses, cutlery, etc., DVDs and books/puzzles/games, lovely towels and linens (even kitchen linens in great condition), We cooked most of our meals in the cabin's spacious kitchen and used the great grill outside, too. The hot tub was a big hit and we loved the serenity of the spacious porches and wooded views. 3 generations living in CO, GA, and NC loved being here. Book this cabin - you won't be disappointed! Great customer service and EVERYTHING you need to have a great time in the NC mountains. Thanks, Tom and Sue, you'll be hearing from us again!

Creek and Woods 1 Byrd/Dunaway2018

  • 5 of 5

Mr Tom and Mrs Sue made sure to make us feel more than welcome. We arrived to be greeted by Mr Tom which took us to the cabin. Where fresh baked chocolate chip cookies were waiting as well as a cake they had made for our kids because they knew we were celebrating their birthday. The place is beautiful and quiet with lots of extras! We can't wait to return.

October, 2017 Motorcyle Trip

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in 2015 and just returned from a second trip this year (2017).

The cabin was as clean as a pin both times and everything was in top notch condition again.

Carport can fit 4 motorcycles and they even have a bucket full of towels on the deck for wiping your bikes off.

The deck goes around three sides of the cabin with lots of comfortable chairs, tables, lighting, not to mention the hot tub. We hung out on the deck quite a bit.

The inside is so nice. The beds are super comfortable and the rooms are quiet.

This cabin is located near the heart of Maggie Valley. Everything is minutes away.

We arrived Sunday on the 8th of October after riding our motorcycles from Indiana and all day through tropical storm Nate (I think that's the storm). Anyway, after riding all day through a tropical storm we arrived at the cabin. The roads were soaked, the mountains were soaked, we were soaked, the bikes were soaked and we were starving. The last thing we wanted to do was to go back out into the storm to get groceries or go to a restaurant. Without us even asking, Tom & Sue offered to go for us if we gave them a list, which we did. I don't think they know how much we appreciated that!

Tom & Sue are the greatest hosts you could ask for. Don't hesitate. Rent from them. Great hosts, great properties!

P.S. When they advise you of great local restaurants, pay attention!
