Spacious yet cozy

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property to escape the threat of Hurricane Irma. The property was beautiful!! It accommodated 15 people comfortably and still had enough space to set up air mattresses for additional people, if necessary. The air hockey table was awesome for keeping the kids entertained while the pool table kept the guys happy. The front and rear porches were ideal for watching the elk quietly graze. The decor was very inviting an intriguing. Overall, I loved this cabin!!!

Great stay in the smokies!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Sugar Plum Cabin! The cabin was set up perfectly for our larger group with ample amount of bedrooms, bathrooms, and shared living space. The air hockey table was also a hit! Sugar Plum was easily accessible from highway 19 and a short drive into the town of Maggie Valley for all our needs. Thank you Kim and Henry! We hope to come back soon!

Beautiful mountain getaway!!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home. Just as described. We loved that there was plenty of play space for the children while the adults cooked a meal or played cards in another room. On our last evening, the elk walked through the backyard, down the side of the parking area, and out into the street. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The kids were so excited to see elk up close and personal. Would definitely rent this home again!!

Great place for a big family

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Maggie Valley. The cabin was conveniently located near main attractions. The accommodations were comfortable. We enjoyed making s'mores in the fire pit and the pool table was a big success. The owners responded immediately to our concern regarding the stove. We enjoyed our stay at Sugar Plum Cabin!

Really nice cabin. Exactly what we were looking for.

  • 4 of 5

We had 8 guys come up for the weekend so we could go white water rafting and go to the casino. Other cabins i looked at said they slept 8 when really it was just 4 queen size beds. This cabin has 10 individual beds which really worked for us. The addition in the back with the patio, fire pit and pool table is a great area to relax and hangout. The only thing to stop me from giving 5 stars was they're was a small problem when we arrived but was corrected. Great communication with the owners. I do highly recommend this cabin for big group's. Thank you for letting us stay there and i look forward to a future trip.
