We visit Maggie Valley annually and we love staying at the Vacasa Cottages.
The daily elk visits are special. We enjoy the nice front porch environment.

Beautiful place so cozy and comfy. Love the playground and pool and basketball goal for my grandkids right in front of cabin where they could play while I sit on the porch. Our second time staying will be back

I love Mountain Joy cottages and the amenities. This cabin was a great size and location. It was also dog friendly which is why I booked it. However, the cabin had a noticable odor of "dog" when we arrived. There were cobwebs in an the corners of the bathroom. The towels smelled "musty" and just didn't seem very clean. The parking is one narrow spot between this cabin and the next. It was very tight for a full sized Silverado. I didn't cook so I can't comment on the kitchen.
Overall, I'd book again as the benefits outweigh the negatives but I'd definitely bring my own towels next time!

This clean little cabin in a great location central to Cherokee, Asheville, and Cataloochee, was just what we were looking for. We were able to see the Elk in both the Cherokee and Cataloochee Valley areas. There are several cabins at this location, making it ideal for several families to vacation together.

a few minor details make this a 4 instead of a 5 but all in all this was a great place- we would come again in a heartbeat…

You can definitely tell there’s been some “wear and tear” along the way, but this cabin gets the job done. Being pet friendly and kid friendly (with outdoor amenities) was also a plus. We rented it to be close to skiing, and the location was absolute perfection. We did have an issue, but it was handled as soon as possible (and above and beyond what I had expected). I share this because I like knowing when a company backs their product vs leaving the consumer high and dry. I knocked it one star simply because I needed a cookie sheet and spatula for breakfast, and the kitchen utensils were lacking. There was plenty of silverware - just not cooking utensils. I’d stay here again. Enough said.
