The Great Smoky Mountains feature some of the most spectacular and breathtaking views in the United States! Sometimes simply referred to as just the “Smokies”, the Great Smoky Mountains are a chain of mountains located along the Tennessee – North Carolina border in Southeastern United States. The mountains are part of the Appalachian system and one of the oldest uplands on earth. They originally got their name because of the smoke-like haze, which hangs low over the mountains. Millions of visitors are drawn by their stunning natural beauty, panoramic mountain views, endless miles of pristine mountain streams, carpets of wildflowers as well as a verdant forest, abundant wildlife and innumerable scenic trails that have made The Great Smoky Mountains National Park to become recognized as an “International Biosphere Reserve.” It is home to an exquisite array of wildlife including elk, white-tailed deer, black bears, and 200 species of birds.

We went with a large group to the Maggie Valley Creekside Lodge and they were incredibly helpful and hospitable. The accommodations were great. The large foyer area was wonderful for the group and the staff was incredible. They made us welcome in so many ways. The rates were incredibly reasonable and the room had all the necessary amenities.
We loved our visit here! We just got home last night and we all wish we were still there! The staff is extremely helpful and the rooms are nice and clean. We spent a lot of time by the stunning creek cooking dinner on the grill and roasting s’mores over the fire pit. It is centrally located to many attractions. We went on many day trips and didn’t spend all day in the car getting there. It’s also within walking distance of restaurants and shops, but you may find yourself eating by the rushing creek instead!
Really enjoyable place to stay. Room had a balcony overlooking the creek. Spacious room with comfortable bed. Staff was very nice and friendly. Took only 35-40 minutes to reach the Valley at Cataloochee where the elk were in rut. Awesome stay and can’t wait to go back.
Clean, friendly, quiet, relaxing. Heartfelt thanks to Carol and her entire staff for making our group feel at home again this year. They went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed to make our event a success. We will be back again!
