The Perfect Day in Maggie Valley, NC

Western North Carolina has dozens of amazing small towns, each with its own unique personality and appeal. Maggie Valley, NC - just a half hour drive from Asheville, NC - is one of those small towns that speaks to a different time. Quiet, quaint, family friendly, and convenient to local area attractions, Maggie Valley is an excellent home base for those traveling to the area. Below, we’ve put together a sample itinerary for a day in Maggie Valley.

Wake Up in Style

Carolina Mornings has several gorgeous properties in the Maggie Valley area. Truly Breathless, a three bedroom cabin boasting a 50-mile Blue Ridge vista, a beautiful stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and a fully equipped kitchen is the perfect home in which to begin your day. Wake up to the sun pouring in the windows, set the coffee to brew, and step outside on the porch to look out over the fog in the valley. Breathe in the calm.

Head Out for a Hike

Western North Carolina is perhaps best known for its magnificent national forests and hundreds of miles of hiking trails. Maggie Valley is home to some of the most pristine of our forests, so hiking here is a must do! After a leisurely morning at Truly Breathless, head over to Hemphill Bald - a moderate 13.6 mile loop trail. It can be strenuous at times, but the views from the top are unforgettable.

Enjoy a Game of Mini Golf

Finishing off the evening with a game of Mini Golf is a classic summertime activity! Maggie Valley is home to the Fantasy Golf and Gameroom - an 18 hole masterpiece complete with waterfalls, windmills, a lighthouse, and some picture-worthy views from the 18th hole.  Bring the whole family for a game before heading back home to Truly Breathless!

Grill Out

Ah, the sweet smell of a smoking grill in the summer-evening air! It doesn’t get much better than that. Truly Breathless is complete with an outdoor entertaining area (with a picnic table and a gas grill!), so grilling out is easy to do in style. Imagine: the kiddos are playing with the pup in the yard, the sun is setting in the west and hot pink streaks the sky. The burgers are almost done, the picnic table is set, and looking back on your day, you realize that this has been one that you’ll never forget.
