Maggie Valley is home to two independent wine stores: Soco Wine Market of Maggie Valley and B&C Winery. Both offer a unique selection and appeal to wine enthusiasts of every sort.


What’s a romantic trip without a cozy cabin to call home for the weekend? After a busy day of exploring, you’ll need a nice, relaxing place to rest in the evenings. Maggie Valley offers a plethora of cabin choices for parties of all sizes. The perks of renting a cabin: you can cook your own meals and possibly enjoy lounging next to a warm fireplace. Even a deck with a hot tub or balcony can be enjoyed during the winter months. The scenery in Maggie Valley is beautiful year-round. Check out our offerings to find your perfect stay.


Enjoy the serenity of Maggie while being close to many other romantic destinations like Waynesville, Lake Junaluska, Cherokee, and Asheville. If you’re planning an extended stay, day trips may be on your agenda. Western North Carolina has so many gems to explore. Spend a day at the Biltmore House or shopping and sightseeing in downtown Asheville. Stroll along Main Street in Waynesville or test your luck at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino. For a more relaxing outing, take a scenic walk around the beautiful Lake Junaluska. A stay in Maggie Valley means all your favorite Western North Carolina attractions are just a stone’s throw away.
