This was the first time that we had stayed in Maggie Valley and settled for MJC. We had the Fox cabin #7. Upon reading other reviews, I was nervous about the book of rules and that the cabins were going to be too snobby. I have never been more wrong. Please don't read the other reviews about that. There is...

I love this place!!! I was looking for a place that was affordable, clean, and peaceful and got exactly what I wanted! I stayed in Cabin 2, directly beside the pond and only a few paces from the main office and had a blast! It has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twins...a bathroom,...

Great place to stay if you like barking dogs all night. For the love of rest and sleep. I don't care if you have a pond with ducks, barking dogs and a place to sleep and rest do not mix! Would not recommend!

We stayed in Cabin 11, which is in the middle of three set on one side of a small duck pond. The cabins are spaced about 50 feet apart. I was hoping they would be further isolated but it didn't play a factor except for the neighbor's dog, which found entertainment in barking at the ducks. The cabin itself was...

The kids were all doing their own thing, so I was checked in by the owner. She was very nice, and really funny. We checked in around 7 PM, and hit the "antler" cabin. Our cabin was well kept, all wood, and clean (a little dusty). The owners are very serious about keeping it this way, so they have developed...

Overall it was an ok stay. The front desk gentleman was very friendly. This is the second time we have come on Valentine Day weekend. The cabin we had, was poorly insulated and no amount of fireplace wood burning/ heat combination kept it above 62 degrees. The sheets on one of the beds (we had a two bedroom cabin) were...

Absolutely perfect. My husband and I just returned from a weekend getaway in Maggie Valley. We stayed in Romance Cottage 11. It was perfect in every way. The cabin is decorated very tastefully, was very clean, and in the perfect location: we were very close to everything, yet still secluded. We wanted to see the elk in Cataloochee Valley, and...

We stayed in the Antler Cottage #11. It is absolutely beautiful! The grounds are beautiful and so peaceful. The owner and her family were great! We will come back. Great place for the price! You won't be disappointed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally the homestead of Maggie Setzer, for whom Maggie Valley was named, the land that Mountain Joy Cottages sits on is a special place. You'll become enchanted with its mountain charm, family atmosphere, and character. We offer all of the modern conveniences you would expect with year-round access and seclusion that very few can offer. Enjoy a quiet relaxing afternoon while rocking on your own private front porch or have a ball playing in our two acre meadow. A special treat on the weekends is roasting marshmallows at a campfire. Or if fishing is up your stream, try your luck in our stocked trout pond. Also we have many attractions within just a few miles for those adventurers who wish to ski, hike, shop, or eat! So come stay and visit a while with us and enjoy a complete Mountain Joy experience! 1 Bedroom Romance Cabins with Jacuzzi (Couple) 2 Bedroom Cabins (Sleeps 4) 3 Bedroom Cabin (Sleeps 6) 4 Bedroom Cabin (Sleeps 8) * $20.00 Additional Charge per Person per Night * ... more   less
