We think you need a change! If you’re here, it’s because you’re looking for a place that has it all, and we do! We’re country, and very proud of it. My name is Captain Peter - let me answer some of the questions you may have:

Is it true you’re an award-winning inn? Yes, it’s true (shucks).

Is it true that your suites have everything in them? Yes (shucks again). Our Maggie Valley Lodging faclilties have king size beds, microwaves, refrigerators, 2-person Jacuzzis, wood burning fireplaces, free firewood, wood decks overlooking the waterfall, coffee makers, hair dryers, and irons. We even have a suite containing a formerly operating still!

Well, what do you not have? Y’all are the only thing missing!

Are you pet friendly? We sure offer North Carolina pet friendly cabins.

And what about my children? Absolutely! The happy sounds of kids are always welcome here.

What types of things can we do on our visit? There are many fun outdoor activities in the Great Smoky Mountains, Maggie Valley and the surrounding areas. North Carolina whitewater rafting, horseback riding, steam train rides, Biltmore House, Harrah's Casino, skiing at Cataloochee, hiking, snowboarding, reunions and so much more. Also...another favorite pastime is to DO NOTHING AT ALL!

Is it true that you’re the home of the famous Holy Water maker (Moonshiner Popcorn Sutton)? Yep – and we love POP CORN!

We are country and friendly, with a great sense of humor. The inn has a casual, rustic elegance. Now you’ve met me, and I would like to meet you! So come on home to Maggie Valley; we’re waiting – Mz Karen Hession and I will be your welcoming hosts, along with our ducks (over 100), our chickens (your eggs in the a.m.) and lots of friendly critters.
