My family of 15+ stayed in the Owl Lodge over a long weekend to prepare for and to hold a memorial service for my father-in-law. I was initially hesitant to book this property because it had no reviews. I learned from the on-site property manager that it's a new listing. In fact, everything in the lodge is brand new -- that is, everything that you'd want to be new: the furnishings, mattresses, appliances, TVs, etc. are all in pristine shape! The house itself is a charming amalgamation of old and new all combined to make a very comfortable place to vacate. I can't say enough about how well suited the property is for those with many in their party, including small children. There's a duck pond, a playground, and a pool! None of these seem contrived or take away from the cabin experience. Though someone has already swiped the dust pan and the can opener, we wanted for nothing. I recommend this property for anyone looking for a place to stay in Maggie Valley.
