I brought a few of my daughters up from Florida to try and see snow. Andy was very helpful in getting me my last minute reservation and provides friendly hospitality. The Valley Inn isn’t fancy but it’s clean, the bed was very comfortable and it fit our needs just fine. Charming red barn design, front porch with rockers, and the beautiful creek running behind the inn is a nice touch. My daughters enjoyed a photo shoot out back! It was raining most of our visit so we didn’t get the opportunity to enjoy the fire pit and creek side swings but hope to be back again in the summer.
If you are going to Maggie Valley, this is the place to stay! There is a gazebo and fire pit on the creek, with plenty of picnic tables, charcoal grills, swings and corn hole boards. You can enjoy all of this while staying in a quaint Inn far enough off the road where there is no traffic noise. Walk out back and you forget you are near a main road. You can fish for trout, hang out with friends or meet new ones. The owner "Andy" is so accommodating. Anything you need, just ask. This Inn is run like the Inns of the old days before all the chains built here. Once you stay here, you will always return to this Inn when you visit the area. Very clean rooms...and great prices.
Lovely place to stay. Older inn and the rooms are small but the rate was Great. Our group was about 20 folks and we enjoyed the FIRE PIT by the beautiful running stream. If I had any negatives it was the mattress, it was quite soft and lumpy. Had a good sleep anyway. And I liked the parking in the back not seen from the street.
We were simply seeking cooler weather and left the house with no plans at all... we headed to Cherokee only to find it full of people and noise, so we continued to Maggie Valley hoping it would be quieter. We drove the strip to look for a simple motel on the water for the night, and the red barn look of this inn caught my eye, so we turned around to check it out and found everything we were looking for. It felt like home the minute you drove on the property. The owner is very welcoming and fantastic. The king jacuzzi room we had was super clean and well appointed with antique furniture as if grandma decorated it herself. The water was hot and the WiFi worked well. Everything you would need is provided. Gazebo, fire pit, porch swings by the creek, covered area, grills, firewood, and corn hole boards. Everything has been kept up well and every need met. I hesitated doing a review because I would never want this place spoiled, but all the people at the Valley Inn deserve to be recognized for the exceptional retreat they provide. We thank you for a wonderful time spent.…
Had a wonderful time. The rooms were nice and quaint. Need to replace mattresses. But other than that. I loved it. Andy was a great host! We stayed in rooms 33 and 35. 35 is a split room meaning its two beds and split by a bathroom. The rooms are very spacious. I forgot to ask were they got the Red blankets!! They were so soft! I want one.
