“Different”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We stayed in the B&B portion of Misty Mountain Ranch. Our room was quite large, as was the attached bath, but there was no sound proofing in the ceiling which was unfortunate - we could hear the guests who were staying in the room above ours. Breakfast was plentiful but uninspired, and far below the quality we usually find in B&B's. The location is convenient to town, is quiet, and the innkeeper is a very nice lady. But, overall, we would not particularly recommend MMR for people who are aficionados of B&B's.

What a wonderful surprise! I decided to take my son on a last minute ski trip to Maggie Valley and we were lucky enough to find a room at the Misty Mountain Ranch that was perfect for us!
We arrived late and yet, Karen was there to welcome us and help us get settled into our rustic and wonderful room.
We'd brought our dogs-lab mix and a yorkie, along for the trip and they were very welcome and enjoyed taking nice walks around the beautiful property as well as lounging by the fireplace in our room.
We had everything we needed and more. Close to the ski resort, tubing and other attractions, the location was perfect.
The breakfasts were fabulous as well, and Karen even made sure I had decaf and fixed breakfasts for my son based on his likes...which were different than the wonderful dishes she'd prepared for the other guests.
We stayed in the Miss Karen's Quarters room in the main building and it had a separate entrance which was perfect with the dogs and a little boy.
It is a very tranquil place with a beautiful duck pond in the back, wonderful rooms, hospitality and company.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will definitely be back. We miss it already!
Highly suggest this quaint B&B for a relaxing, low key get away.

Room Tip: If you like rustic with privacy, choose Miss Karen's Quarters. Whirlpool tub, shower, big bathro...

This cute bed and breakfast comes with charm and friendliness nestled in Maggie Valley!
Adorable rooms and Karen, owner and operator, is so nice and helpful. I highly recommend it even for couples with children. The pond with the cute ducks as well as the possibility of seeing Elk walk through the yard makes it quite unique!

Definitely consider this - her prices are reasonable compared to others in the area and you will love the breakfast.

We had a great time. I always read trip advisor before staying anywhere. There were a couple of bad reviews of this place but the good reviews out weighed the bad. Everything was great for us. Some prior complaints on here were over exaggerated. We stayed in cabin 2 the fisherman's shack. Very clean. Kitchen had basics so we saved a ton of $ by cooking in. Bathroom was small but not as bad as prior reviews let on. I took10-15 min showers and did not run out of hot water as some prior reviews complained of. Bed was soft and not as firm as mine at home, but was clean and comfortable for a few nights stay. We stayed in most nights and watched movies we brought from home on the dvd player. The electric fire place did not work, but left word so they could get it fixed. The elk visited us on our arrival. We fed the ducks our left over biscuits upon departure. We visited the wheels thru time museum during our stay and is a good place for bikers and rodders. Ate at Hurley's and Nutmeg Cafe. Both were great food.

Karen is a wonderful hostess and was very accommodating to late night arrivals, misplaced keys, and a messy toddler at breakfast. Our suite was very comfy with nice decor and stocked with free snacks. There was a nice, large jacuzzi tub, coffee maker, microwave, and mini-fridge. Our toddler was brought a crib, and he loved running around to see all the ducks and other wildlife wandering around outside. We really had a nice stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in this area. There's not a whole lot to do in Maggie Valley itself, but it's very close to Cherokee and somewhat close to Asheville.

Beautiful area, lovely owner, we stayed in one of the cabins and cabin is mis leading. It is really a mobile home with wood on it. Ours was T-I-N-Y and had a musty smell. Bed was beyond uncomfortable. We cut our stay short due to this, owner did try to accommodate us. Didn't try main building.

Stayed here for my wedding that we had in the front yard. Well kept place. Owner is a lovely lady that will make your stay very comfortable. Room was very nice. Breath taking I should say. Will be staying here again!
