The property was clean, inviting, and centrally located. The Browns were very easy to deal with and very accommodating. We loved our stay, it was exactly what we were looking for. Totally exceeded our expectations. Would recommend to anyone with kids. The hot tub was awesome! The creek was fun for the kids and very relaxing.

Great Place to Stay in Maggie Valley

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice for a long ski weekend. Great house. Nicely renovated and comfortable. Right on the creek. Plenty of room for our family of 6. About 15-20 minutes from Cataloochee. Owners are great to rent from.

Always perfect....a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming and staying here, and only here, for more than 5 years. I try and make it down at least once, if not more, a year. The cabin is always wonderful whether it is summer, fall, winter or spring. It has more than everything I need. Beth and Ken are equally as wonderful and truly want to make it the best experience possible. I highly recommend Shady Creek to any and everyone. The location is perfect. On one side the Jonathan Creek and on the other a beautiful mountain view all with easy year round access, even for a motorcycle. I just can't wait to go back!

Spent our 23rd anniversary here.

  • 5 of 5

We found the cabin very cozy. We spent so much time sitting on the patio enjoying the sounds of the creek and drinking a few glasses of wine. The cabin was so clean and beds very comfortable. The owners were very nice and helpful. We definitely will re-book here.
