Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bdr, 2 bath cabin - sleeps 6 - 9 people - in the tree tops next to a waterfall

Creek 'n Woods III 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 in the woods, feels like you're in a tree house, and the sounds of the waterfall off the back deck can be heard wherever you're sitting. The L-shaped covered porch has rocking chairs waiting for you, and outside dining tables and chairs. The hot tub is 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 soak away your cares (or the sore muscles and possible bruises from skiing or snowboarding). A gas grill with an extra tank is provided for your use. This cabin is on a paved road, and accessible year round.

There are movies, games, puzzles, and books for your enjoyment, and WiFi and expanded cable are provided.

This cabin is just minutes from golf at the Maggie Valley Club, and also nearby are The Wheels Through Time Museum, Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Harrah's Cherokee Casino, Cherokee Museum, Cataloochee Ski Resort, Biltmore Estate, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, fishing, gem mining, shopping, music, and more. Nothing is too far from Maggie Valley!

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' in the dark. 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, etc) we will do whatever we can to 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, fell in love with the area, felt we needed to live here, and moved from Ft. Myers, Fl. We love what we do and the people we have met doing vacation rentals since 2001.

Tom & Sue Knapko purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Tom & Sue Knapko chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

Maggie Valley is an ideal vacation destination. Located in the Great Smoky Mountains, we're close to everything. It 's a great place to vacation and that's why we have these 4 vacation rental cabins here in Maggie Valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I spent our 39th anniversary at Creek 'n Woods III last October. We wanted to experience the beauty of the mountains in the fall.

Sue metus in the valley and drove us up the mountain to the house. She informed us they called #III "the chicken house" due to its cute decor. The pictures don't do it justice. The wrap around porch with rockers and tables let us spend time outside just enjoying the sun rising over the mountains. The hot tub and man made waterfall were so relaxing.

The kitchen was completely stocked with lots of staples and every pot, pan or dish imaginable. Sue had made us some wonderful chocolate chip cookies to welcome us. The house was very clean and supplied with everything you could possibly need.It is a lovely cabin with a "home feeling." We only used the bottom floor since it was just the two of us, but there is plenty of room upstairs for a larger family.

We spent the days exploring the beautiful mountains and in the evening we loved coming back to "roost" in the chicken house. When we return to Maggie Valley we will certainly be calling Tom & Sue at Creek 'n Woods.

Beautiful home in a peaceful setting in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a great location, close to Waynesville and only about a 35 minute drive to Asheville. The opposite direction near Bryson City provided hours of great Fly Fishing on the Tuckaseegee River.

Of course, the close proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains is a plus. One day we took the journey to view the Elk in the Cataloochee Valley. Only about 15 miles away from the house, but the trip takes about 50 minutes due to narrow curvy roads. Well worth the drive. We saw about a dozen elk and numerous wild turkeys.

The home provided all necessities and was well stocked. The fresh flowers on the dining room table, and a bottle of wine had been provided to celebrate our sons wedding during our stay. In addition, there were chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen cookie jar. Very nice touches, and quite unexpected.

We ate at numerous locations in Waynesville which we would recommend. The Chefs Table, and Frogs Leap Public House were the most notable.

In Asheville, The Bull and Beggar, The Admiral, and The Lobster Trap are a must.

If you are into beer, a trip out to Sierra Nevada, and New Belgium. The tasting center at New Belgium is now open, but the brewery is not open for tours yet.

We look forward to returning.

Pick this one... you will not regret it!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for only 3 days, but since the moment we pulled in to the driveway we fell in love with the cabin and the location. The owners Tom and Sue welcomed us and showed us the cabin, gave us useful advise and let us know to contact them if we needed anything. For me, this is a peace of mind knowing the owners are a quick phone call away. They are good, lovely people. The cabin is spotless clean with a fun, homey, upscale rustic decor. The whole family loved the home-baked cookies provided at check-in...yum! We loved having Starbucks coffee provided for and a huge cookie jar full of biscotti- double Yum! The kitchen cabinets were full of any and all pots, pans, utencil, spices, etc -- better stocked than my own kitchen. My 6 year old daughter loved all the reading books, board games, stuffed animals and toys provided in the loft area and my 13 year son loved the huge bedroom and closet upstairs. He was so excited he even unpacked and hung his own clothes without being asked- I was in shock. I loved the view from the kitchen and the wrap around porch with the rockers. Very peaceful and beautiful. My only regret is leaving so soon. We had a wonderful time and I highly recommend this property to your family. It is a sure bet. We cannot wait to go back. We loved it and so will your family. Pick this one, your family will thank you.

Fully stocked house, clean, great owners

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes when you rent a house, you walk in to one roll of toilet paper, no hand soap, and one washcloth for the whole stay. Not the case here. This property was fully stocked, clean, and welcoming. It was like walking into one's personal mountain home. The hot tub was a very nice addition. The owners were fantastic to work with and incredibly responsive. We'll stay here again.

Best Mountain Family getaway ever!

  • 5 of 5

creek n Woods III is an immaculate cabin with everything at your fingertips. There is so much to do in the nearby area that a week's stay is not long enough. Great place to bring your kids, reunite with family, and explore God's country. The cabin is for for a king but rustic enough for a relaxing time in the mountains to savor the beauty and stillness of nature.

Dream Vacation Every Time

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Creek 'n Woods III twice now, and have already booked it for next October. The house is the perfect size for a family or for a couple who likes to spread out. The hosts, Tom and Sue Knapko, provided everything we needed, including recommendations for (great!) restaurants and things to do. Knowing that they live close by is reassuring, too - and they will respond any time you might have any complaints or questions. The house is always very neat and clean and it is in a wonderful neighborhood. The deck outside the kitchen is the perfect place to have your coffee in the morning and just sit and watch the mountains surrounding you. We always hate to leave "our cabin," but we know we'll be back! Highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a dream vacation base.
