Hi, duckiederby.

Maggie Valley is a great base of operations when you want to explore the Smoky Mountians. http://www.maggievalley.org/index.html

When we visit Maggie, we make day trips to Asheville to see the Biltmore House http://www.biltmore.com/ , and to Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge to see Dollywood, etc. http://www.mypigeonforge.com/ and http://www.gatlinburg.com/default.asp

Asheville's about 30 minutes away, Gatlinburg is about 1.5 hours away.

There's also Cherokee, NC with the Oconoluftee Indian Village, and Unto These Hills outdoor drama. http://www.cherokee-nc.com/index.php?page=290 It's about 30 minutes.

Dillsboro is a great little town to explore and it's about 20 minutes. Don't miss Nancy Tut's Christmas House. http://www.visitdillsboro.org/

Waynesville borders Maggie Valley, and has a wonderful downtown Main St with decorative street lamps, coffee shops, art galleries, live music on the sidewalks, etc.

And when you just want to relax, Maggie is the best place to be. It's quiet, with nice shops to browse, great family-owned restaurants and hotels, and a super Ice Cream shop.

I highly recommend staying in Maggie!

We enjoy all the above when visiting the area. Make sure you take the time one afternoon/evening to go see the elk in the Great Smoky Mts. National Park ............."From Maggie Valley go east to second red light and make a left at the

Quality Inn and travel down Hwy. 276. Go approx. eight miles and

turn left on Cove Creek Road just before Interstate 40. Drive approx

20 miles into the park. There you can hike, fish or visit the homestead

and church. Be sure to take a picnic to enjoy while waiting on

the Elk to come out to feed at sunset."

There are several nice, inexpensive motels in Maggie. Gabi, who posts here regualrly, runs A Holiday Motel. I've never stayed there, but I hear good things about it. http://www.holidaymotel.net/

There are several other locally owned & operated motels in the Maggie, and a few chain-style motels. We have used several motels in Maggie. The only one i'll never return to is the Scottish Inn.

Here's a list of local motels. Good luck! http://www.maggievalley.org/hotels.html

This would be different than a stay in a motel/hotel; it's all I can recommend because it's the only place I stay in the area; my parents have a membership here. We really enjoy our visits there. It's a RV resort/campground just outside of Maggie Valley; very nice, quiet, and peaceful beside a mountain stream. There are many senior citizens who are regulars there, but also families with kids of all ages. In addition to camping they offer "park model" modular type homes by the stream, and they also have cute little log cabins. Their rates are very economical.
