“Awesome Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2008

Our visit to Jonathan Creek Inn in January of 2008 was AWESOME. The rooms were very clean, the rates were good, and all of the staff was very friendly and helpful. The approximate 12" of snow we received while we were there was a bonus....especially for visitors from Florida.
Our visit was centered around skiing at Cataloochee Ski Resort. The resort was only about 4 miles from this Inn.
We REALLY enjoyed our creekside room...what a view covered with snow. WE WILL BE BACK.

ps. If you plan on eating dinner in Maggie Valley, be sure to do it early, this town shuts down after dark.

The atmosphere was pleasant, but we found the rooms a bit small with our children present. More so than other hotels we stayed at in the past. The pool is not attached to the building so we decided to pass on swimming. We did not feel like walking across the parking lot wet while it was so cold out. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed the free coffee and cocoa. The price was right, but I recommend you stay on the creek side if you do not want to look out to the parking lot from your room window.
We came to the valley to ski and were happy with the kids ski free program they offered. We were only 4 miles from the slopes too, bonus.
There is a pretty good restaurant next door also. I recommend that if you care to dine out and have a glass of wine, check them out. It was all so convenient and the food was pretty good.

  • Liked — the creek out back, they made it inviting with the walk area etc.
  • Disliked — The pool being seperate from the hotel. We found the room small.

Jonathan Creek Inn, located on the main highway in the heart of Maggie Valley, is a great place to stay for one night or for a week. We were just passing through, and stopped to see if they had a vacancy after reading their ads in travel guides, etc. This inn is family owned and operated, and the rooms are attractive, clean and comfortable with a "down home" decor. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We were given a great room which had a "back door" opening out onto a gazebo, deck, and the creek. The room had a microwave and fridge, which was another plus, in addition to being located next door to a wonderful restaurant. We highly recommend this hotel and hope to stay there again when we are in the area.

A rushing stream out back, hot tub by the stream, hammock, chairs on the deck and tables if you need them or sit on your deck and watch it all, what more do you want? The staff is friendly and helpful.
It's not the Ritz, but it is clean and moderately priced. If you love the mountains, you will love it here. This is my second stay and I am planning to return in the Spring.

  • Liked — Seating by the stream
  • Disliked — Have to walk through the cold to get to the heated pool

We absolutely fell in love with the Jonathan Creek Inn. The romms was nicely furnished and had all the amenities that we look for when we travel. ( ironing board, refrigerator, micorwave etc.) The biggest surprise was the screened in back porch leading to the creek behind our room. It's so relaxing to just sit back there and listen to the water flowing. The grounds were well kept and had two seater swings on the bank of the creek where you could sit outside and let the rest of the world go by. Talk about relaxation! I would recommend The Jonathan Creek Inn to anyone looking for a peaceful, serene setting to relax. The next best thing is that yo are also within a short distance to some of the local attraction.

  • Liked — the room and the grounds

We have stayed at the Jonathan Creek Inn several times but usually in one of the Jacuzzi/fireplace rooms. This time there were only two rooms available so we chose the creek side room with a back porch. It was so great! It was a cold week end and it rained one morning but sitting out on the porch was still so peaceful because of the sound of the stream! The back door also had a window in it so we could leave it open and listen to that sound all evening. The room itself is nice and very clean. Keep in mind you are not staying at the Hyatt. The rates were SO reasonable (as usual) so even if you are out all day doing fun stuff, you don't feel like you have wasted a lot of money. It is right down the street from Cataloochee Ski area (which is also great all year) and a short distance to the Biltmore Estate/Ashville. Waynsville is a very cute area within 10 minutes with a lot of shops. Jonathan Creek Inn is the perfect central location and the staff is ALWAYS pleasant and helpful. They even have directions printed for you to some of their favorite things as well as all of the waterfalls in the area. My husband's only regret was that Joey's Restaurant was not open for breakfast (taking a few much needed weeks off!). Ghost Town In The Sky is also set to open in the spring. The whole area is GREAT for kids.

Stayed February 2007

Nice, peaceful place to stay. Staff is super friendly! Clean play area for kids with swings & slides. My 5-year old enjoyed swimming in the in door pool with glass surrounding so that you still enjoy the mountain view. He also enjoyed swimming in the creek behind us. Nice pinic area overlooking the creek. Games, coffee, tv, fireplace, etc. in the lobby area was nice place to get out the room when it rained.

  • Liked — view of mountains in front & creek side in rear/joey's pancake house across the road
  • Tips/Secrets — stay sunday - thursday nights for almost half the price as you would for weekend nights
