Our Inside Guide to the Local Area - Just send us an inquiry and I’ll provide an Inside Guide to dining, attractions and area activities.

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.

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, 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. Historic buildings, relaxing benches, public art & welcoming folks make Waynesville a thoroughly enjoyable place to live & visit. 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. Waynesville is the largest town in Western North Carolina west of Asheville.

About Marilyn Butler

I'm available to answer any questions about our home and/or the location. So please, email ( or call (786-412-0912) anytime.

Marilyn Butler purchased this house in 2005

Why Marilyn Butler chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Love the view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Maggie Valley last Christmas (2015) and drove up to this house and were amazed by the view! We knew this was going to be our next rental! We were there the last week in August and it was everything I expected and more. When we were at the house, the majority of our time was spent on the porch/balcony enjoying the view. The house is great; loved the bedrooms, the master bathroom was awesome and love the open concept in the living area. I know they renovated earlier this year but I have to say they went cheap or the contractor cut corners. The floor has buckled in the center. If it were my house, I'd be pissed! The island is much too close to the counters and the fridge. I'd have it out much further. But it's not my house and we managed for the week we were there. We arrived on a Sunday evening and the first thing I had to do Monday morning was get a broom and get rid of all the spiderwebs on the railing on the porch! They were covered in spiderwebs and I don't deal well with spiders. They had to go, otherwise I wouldn't be able to enjoy spending time on the porch/balcony. Would I rent it again? Absolutely!!!! I'm going to paint our view so we'll always have it. Would I buy the house? No, because I want the sun on my porch in the morning and this house doesn't get the sun until late afternoon. During the time we were there, that was perfect because the daytime temps were in the 90's!!!!

I miss Maggie Valley so much!!!! I can't wait till we make it our permanent home!!!

Rent this house!!! You'll LOVE it!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write the review about how you loved our home. We’re so happy that in spite of some of the issues you pointed out, you are encouraging everyone to rent. However, I would like to take this opportunity to address them. Had you spoken or written to me directly about them during your stay, I would have been able to explain what is going on with each one and resolve what I could. 1. Cheap is not a word I would use to describe our flooring. In fact, having installed this type of solid wood in our Florida home, we are very familiar with it and based on that, decided it was a good fit for our Maggie property. It is also environmentally sound, since bamboo can be replaced within five years helping to save the forests. The flooring was installed in early spring by a very capable and professional contractor who also did all of the other updates. The only explanation for some of the flooring separating from the floating base is that it has expanded with the warmer summer temperatures. As soon as our housekeeper mentioned this to us, we scheduled the repair. But it has been pending because we don’t have the few open days he needs to do the work until mid-November. I apologize for not mentioning this to you prior to check-in, but will let all of our guests between now and then know about it. 2. We are the second owners of this house and not involved in its design other than the updates you enjoyed. Redesigning the layout of the kitchen was not part of our renovation project. The new kitchen appliances were the last items to be installed and are slightly larger than the previous ones. This minor loss of space was not anticipated and does not impede the use of any appliance. 3. Being on the side of a mountain does present our mingling with certain bugs/insects at times, spiders being one of them. We are aware of this and have a contract with Orkin who sprays on a regular basis. Although no one else has mentioned it being an issue this summer, I will have Orkin re-inspect the entire perimeter of the house and treat it as necessary. As communicated in our check-in instructions and in various locations around our home, we ask that guests contact us immediately if there is anything that we can do to make your stay everything you expect it to be. We would like to correct it in a timely manner rather than risk having you disappointed with anything about our home and delaying any action we have to take in order to fix it.

Very enjoyable stay at a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for almost a week in February and enjoyed our stay. There was eight of us. Four adults and four kids. Plenty of space for all of us! The kids just loved playing upstairs on the third floor. It snowed three days of our trip and the kids just loved it! I would definitely consider staying here again when we come back to Maggie Valley. Such a nice home and the owner was very responsive with any questions or needs that we had.

Thank you again for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review of our home. We agree that it's a great place to be when the snow has cast a beautiful white blanket across the mountain views. Glad to know that kids especially enjoyed it. Please let me know when you're ready to return to Carolina Mountain Dream. It's wonderful in the summer, too!

This house was wonderful! It was very clean and information as far as procedures was VERY well organized!

We had a WONDERFUL stay and will be returning!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Jessica for your wonderful review. We're glad that your whole family enjoyed our home. That's one of the best features, besides the awesome views, of course. That it is spacious enough for everyone to spread out and enjoy their own activities during their mountain getaway.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six, including toddlers, parents, and grandparents, enjoyed our stay in this comfortable and spacious home. We loved the porch with the spectacular view of the mountains and of Maggie Valley. This was a perfect location for us as we took the toddlers to Bryson City, NC to ride the Great Smoky Mountians Railroad.

Owner's Response: We're extremely happy to know your three generations of family were able to share in this mountain getaway. This is what we believe our home is best suited for - family and friends enjoying their time together in the wonderous beauty of Western North Carolina. Please keep us in mind for your next trip to Maggie Valley. We're planning on renovating a few rooms, so our home will be even better in 2016!
