Nestled in the the southern Appalachian mountains of North Carolina, Maggie Valley is a great place to escape the heat of the southern summer, and enjoy the winter sports like you were in Northern New England. At the convergence of the Blue Ridge Mountains and The Great Smokies, the valley enjoys the benefits of being one of the highest valleys east of the Mississippi. A true four season climate, with cool summer nights and white winters, spring flowers and a blaze of autumn leaves in between. Pick your season and enjoy what nature has in store.
For the real estate buyer, the variety of possibilities starts at the valley floor with easy year-round access, close proximity to the restaurants, shops and entertainment venues, while the higher elevations offer spectacular views in all directions. The elevation change from the valley floor to the mountains tops can be as much as 3000 feet, and what a difference it can make. The average temperature drops off 8 degrees per thousand feet, so the you can expect more snow up high and summer night that may require a light jacket.
