Step back in time while enjoying the comforts of today. In 1948, during the height of the road-trip era, Rocky Waters Motel opened to travelers along that iconic highway to the North Carolina mountains. Today, it’s revitalized and reopened in mid-century mountain style as Route 19 Inn in scenic Maggie Valley, near Waynesville, Cherokee and Asheville. This 30-room classic motor lodge is better than its original heyday. Beautiful rooms, outdoor pool.
