Cardinals on the Creek is a lovely vacation home hidden in the beautiful mountains of Maggie Valley. Enjoy the sound of the creek as you sit on the deck lounging in the shade of the trees all around the house. The nearby rushing waterfall is only a few yards away. Take a short walk to see the waterfall up close or simply relax on the deck in the bubbling hot tub. Cardinals on the Creek is the perfect place to hide from busy city life. WiFi is available if you need to stay connected. When you open the windows and enjoy the cool mountain breezes you will realize you don't need air conditioning although a portable unit is available. With three bedrooms, three full bathroom, and five beds it can easily accommodate eight people. Cardinals on the Creek is a spacious and relaxing home that offers a true mountain escape for the entire family.

Approach is a winding, paved road, with a gradual incline. The last part of the road is a steep gravel road with a sharp turn into the driveway. We do experience inclement weather in this region, seasonally, that may limit accessibility; all-wheel drive and/or 4-wheel drive is recommended and required during late fall. In winter tirechains may be required as well.
