We stayed at Boone's Place in November. This was our first time in North Carolina. They said we were 2 weeks past the fall colors - but it was still great! The house is located at the end of a private street, so there is no thru traffic to contend with. Looking out the front windows - beautiful views of the mountain. From the kitchen or deck - beautiful views & sounds of Johnathon creek. A five minute walk and you are on the main street with several shops & restaurants to choose from. A 5 minute drive and you are at Maggie Valley Country Club golf course - open to public & even on golfnow website - I played for $15 - yes - $15. Front nine is nice but the back nine winds up the mountain with spectacular views!
A 30 minute drive up then down the mountain & you are at Harrahs Cherokee casino - lots of fun - highly recommend the Brios Tuscan Grill.
A 45 minute drive east and you are in Asheville & the Biltmore area.
Owners were very helpful with directions & recommendations - made us feel like family!
The house had everything we needed - was in a perfect location - can't wait to go again!
