Great stay

5 on March 22, 2018

Only stayed for one night, wished it could have been more. Late check in and Karen made sure that we got to out room with no problems. Great breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt, pancakes and bacon. This is a great choice if you are staying in the Maggie Valley area

Innkeeper Response
So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you again. I always try to make sure that my guests enjoy the time that they are here. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!! Hope to see y'all again, maybe next time for a longer stay and you can enjoy all the breakfast dishes!

Nice family getaway

5 on January 01, 2018

We checked in to the separate cabin because we brought our dog with us. What a nice place! Great location, close to Cataloochee ski area and just down the street from Tube World. Because it we stayed in the cabin we didn't get to enjoy the breakfast. You have to stay at the B&B to enjoy that. Other than that my family really enjoyed the stay.

Innkeeper Response
We sure appreciate your remarks and we're glad the cabin worked for your family also your pet. The ski area and tubing is going full force and the weather is perfect.(cold) If you can come on back and stay at the B&B so you can enjoy our country breakfast. Thanks again George--gen.mgr.

Karen was such a delightful hostess...very knowledgeable about surrounding area. Made us feel very welcome. Our room was awesome (The Moonshiner). Couldn't have asked for anything more perfect for a weekend get-away.

Innkeeper Response

Unique property

4.2 on October 25, 2017

If you're looking for a place where you feel cozily tucked away from the world as you normally know it - fast-paced, HECTIC - then stay at Misty Mountain. Arriving at dusk dark made it feel even more secluded and far out (it's really not!). The rooms are very spacious and comfy. Breakfast was a treat; not only the yummy pancakes, but the commaraderie around the table was most interesting. SO much more interesting than a hotel!!

Innkeeper Response
WOW !! Love to hear that kind of satisfaction remarks. Been our goal for years now,to maintain our star rating.(5)Thanks--Karen

Relaxing B&B

5 on October 20, 2017

We found Misty Mountain Ranch B&B to be a wonderful place to stay for our mountain getaway. Our stay in the Moonshiner Suite was very relaxing and comfortable. The decor donated by Popcorn Sutton added to the ambience of the room.The willingness of Ms. Karen to share stories about her friendship with Popcorn Sutton was much appreciated and interesting, to say the least. Breakfast was delicious and the hospitality was second to none. Looking forward to our next visit!

Innkeeper Response
Sure is good to know that we pleased you . We would like to do it again. Guests such as yourself is a pleasure to meet and to make you say the things you did.Thanks very much--Karen.

Our Stay at Misty Mountain

4.0 on August 27, 2017

We really loved our stay here. The cabin was so sweet and clean and the AC was on point. My 3 year old daughter loved the space outside to play and my husband and I loved that we felt like we had way more privacy for our family than we would've gotten in a hotel.

We will be back very soon... we love the owner and her Stuff You Rock Misty Ranch!!! Happy Client

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much. So glad I "rocked" your world. I enjoyed meeting you and am looking forward to having you as my guest again. Karen

Good location, rustic and clean rooms. Very homey, I would stay again.

Wonderful Weekend

5 on October 12, 2016

My wife and I had a wonderful weekend at Misty Mountain. Lila met us on arrival and showed us around the place. Later Karen came and offered to prepare a Breakfast basket since we would be up and gone before the regular breakfast time. The room was great, the bed was quite confortable, and the service was outstanding! We will definitely return! Thanks!!
