Area Information
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. The newly re-opened Ghost Town is about a five minute ride away.

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 is 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.

Snowfall is unpredictable, but if you’re in town to ski, the Cataloochee Resort will provide it if Mother Nature doesn’t. Rainfall is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year with the wettest month being March.

âVip treatment from the owner and lovely home.â
5 of 5 starsReviewed April 19, 2014 for a stay in April 2014
This was an easy and trouble free rental from beginning to end. The owner was great to work with quick responses to my questions and the home was perfect for us.

The home offered a great view and is located centrally to just about everything we wanted to do while there. The whole experience just couldn't have been better.

Thank you again Marylin, you and the home were both great, and we look forward to our next rental with you!

If you like the Smoky Mountains this is a great place to stay. Sitting on the side of a mountain, the views are spectacular! The house was so clean and well stocked with towels, kitchen items, cable TV, comfortable bed, everything you need away from home. The landscaping around the house was beautiful. We were there in May, and flowers blooming, cool nights making the stay very comfortable. We would stay there again in a heart beat. Sitting on the porch looking over Maggie Valley, so close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, made the vacation the perfect place to stay.

âWhat a Wonderfull Home with an AWESOME View of the Valley and Mountains!!â
4 of 5 starsReviewed June 27, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
The Home was just what the pictures and description said it was. The home was clean and big enough for a family gathering. Each floor had its own bathroom and bedroom which was very nice and somewhat private as well. We are already planning for next year to stay there again!

Beautiful Location

Beautiful home with beautiful views. We had 8 people and had plenty of room. The house had views from front and back. Really enjoyed the hot tub out back. The kitchen well stocked with dishes and pots and pans. Comfy beds is always great! This home is very nice located in a great neighborhood.

âA TripAdvisor Member on 09/06/2014

Manager Response

Even though the house itself is comfortable, clean, and room, nothing beats the feeling you get when you gaze at the wonderful beauty that surrounds it. Please let us know when you're ready to experience Everview again. We welcome you back as our guests anytime.

A scenic and well appointed property

The upper and lower decks provide an excellent vista of the Smokey Mountains and nearby valleys. The property is reasonably close to Ashville, Waynesville and Hendersonville and the Asheville airport. The floor plan is excellent for either an extended family or a group of friends. Nicely furnished.

âJohn A on 08/14/2014

Manager Response

Thank you very much for taking the time to let others know about our home from a guest's perspective. I agree that the views front just about every room in our home are spectacular. And with so many activities and attractions within a short distance, you may not have had a chance to do it all in one trip. So, please keep Everview in mind if you decide to return to this magnificent area in the future.

Wedding Guests

We had a great time. The area and home were extremely well kept. We felt very secure and safe. It is a quiet neighborhood and we enjoyed the bunnies, birds, cattle, and horses we saw from the porches.

âA TripAdvisor Member on 07/15/2014

Amazing views. Amazing house.

We have been traveling to this general area for many years. This is by far the best house in the best location. The house is around 15 minutes or so from downtown Waynesville, and is very easy to find. The gated community is very well maintained and full of friendly neighbors! The views from both the front and back porches is beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the back porch watching the sun set. The house itself is exactly as it looks in the pictures. It is very well taken care of, and is the cleanest house we have stayed in so far. Each room was well furnished, especially the kitchen! This is one of the only houses that has more than sufficient towels. The owner was incredibly responsive when we had questions. I would highly recommend this house to anyone considering this area.

Waynesville Family winter vacation

We rented this property for 4 nights during the Christmas time. It was a reunion with my sister's family from pa and two nieces from NYC. Its located in a very nice, quiet and peaceful neighborhood. The owner seems very caring and was available anytime to answer any questions. We arrived at night and the access to the location and house was not a problem at all. The house was sparkling clean, very well decorated and very spacious (loved the closet spaces) to fit in two families with kids. We woke up to a beautiful sunrise and scenic view from the windows. This house has all the necessary items one can think of. We had the best relaxed vacation at this house, wish we had more time to extend our stay further. We all were really sad to leave and planned to come back again to enjoy the house more. All attractions, grocery stores are close by, we took the kids for tubing which was only 15-20 min drive in Maggie Valley and kids had a blast. We discovered the best coffee shop (Panacea coffee house) in Waynesville downtown area which was also beautiful to walk around. The walk around Lake Janulushka was wonderful as well. Overall, a lovely place to relax and enjoy family away from the usual touristy commercial places. The owner has done an amazing job in maintaining this house. We have already started making plans for our next vacation at this house and will definitely recommend to our other friends and family.

It was a pleasure speaking with you in regards to the rental. I'm glad you had a chance to spend time with family. Our home is perfect for that kind of get-together. And thank you for the recommendations. We will definitely look into the ping pong table and basketball hoop. Both great ideas. I'm looking forward to visiting Panacea as well the next time we're there. I'm starting to get inquiries for next year already, so let me know when you'd like to return and I'll be glad to set that up. Hope 2014 brings many blessings to you and your family.


A great place to stay while in Maggie Valley!â

We stayed at this location for 11 days. If you're from Florida or anywhere in the lower south you will love, love this house. The weather was so cool that we turned off the air in July. The view from the porch was incredible!!! The house was very well furnished with much more than we could ever used in our stay. What I liked best, well it's hard to say because there were so many things I liked. The house was spotless, well furnished, lots of room and the weather was fantastic!!
