If you’re looking for a romantic getaway during the winter months, Maggie Valley is the place to be. Whether you’re newly in love or celebrating an anniversary, Maggie Valley is a destination that will keep the flame burning.

1). Delicious dining

When planning your meals, there’s no need to leave Soco Road for dining options. We’ve got traditional Italian such as Frankie’s Trattoria or family-friendly all-American joints like Brickhouse Burgers & Pizza. Other favorites are Willie Brooks BBQ, Snappy’s Italian, Rendezvous, and J. Arthur’s. If breakfast is your meal of choice, try out well-known establishments like Joey’s Pancake House, Carver’s Maggie Valley Restaurant, Pop’s, or Country Vittles. This is just a sampling of the many delicious places to eat when visiting.

2). Wine and spirits

Wine and spirits often coincide with a romantic getaway. If you were unable to wine shop before arriving, we’re home to two independent wine stores: Soco Wine Market of Maggie Valley and B&C Winery. Both offer a realm of options and appeal to wine enthusiasts of all types. If you’re more of a spirits person, you can’t leave the Valley without visiting the popular hot spot, Elevated Mountain Distillery. Owner Dave Angel and his crew are ready to give you a tour and serve a sampling of house-made spirits or a delicious cocktail. They recently started offering a full bar menu as well.

3). Cozy cabins

What’s a romantic trip without a cozy cabin? Despite having plenty to do during the day, you need a nice, relaxing place to lodge in the evenings. Maggie Valley offers a plethora of cabin choices for parties of all sizes. A perk of renting a cabin is that you can cook your own meals and possibly even enjoy a lovely fire in the fireplace. Even a deck or balcony can be enjoyed during the winter months. The scenery in Maggie Valley is beautiful year-round.

4). Nearby destinations

You can enjoy the serenity of Maggie while being close to many other romantic destinations like Waynesville, Lake Junaluska, Cherokee, and Asheville. If you’re staying for a week or longer, day trips may be on your agenda. The entire Western North Carolina area is a popular tourism attraction. Spend a day at the Biltmore House or shopping and sightseeing in downtown Asheville, frolicking on Main Street in Waynesville, enjoying a show at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, or simply walking around beautiful Lake Junaluska. A stay in the Valley means all your favorite Western North Carolina attractions are just a stone’s throw away.

5). Simplicity

Today’s world can be overstimulating. With phones, the internet, and 24-7 TV, it can feel impossible to disconnect, but if you’re determined to make it happen, it can. Maggie Valley is a wonderful place to unplug and unwind. Once you check into your cabin and unpack, allow yourself time to take in the beauty and excitement of your surroundings.

We especially love to see visitors year after year. Oftentimes, a visit to Maggie Valley becomes an annual tradition.  Have fun planning, and we hope to see you soon!
