What To Do in the Blue Ridge Mountains

This place is like no other.  The Blue Ridge region of the Appalachians is a place of incredible beauty and we're happy to share it with our guests. 

In this day and age, and especially in this industry, the term "Southern hospitality" is used so frequently that it almost loses meaning.  Not here.  This is a place where many go to breathe, to escape the stifling heat and stresses of other areas.  Those of us who were born and raised here are smart enough to know how lucky we are to be here and we're proud to show you where we come from.  

Take time to really see the area.  Want a scenic drive?  You can get that in something as simple as a drive to the grocery store, or as grand as driving the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The Parkway is easily accessible from entry points in communities near Sugar Mountain, and can provide an incredible backdrop for your vacation photos.  There are plenty of areas to picnic and scenic overlooks as well.  

Is fishing your pleasure?  We have variety ranging from pay-by-the-pound trout ponds to rushing rivers to lakes just a short drive away.  

Want to bike or hike?  You're in luck!  Sugar Mountain has a bike park, as well as planned and spontaneous hiking.  There is a walking path in the village and another in Banner Elk.  Rock climbing or white water rafting?  Yep.  Plenty of places to climb or boulder, and there are rafting companies with lots of destinations and options.  Horseback riding?  You bet!! Stables are nearby.

More of an indoor person?  Plenty of wonderful restaurants and shopping here, too.  You'll have some of the best restaurants in the the state within just a few miles of your rental property.  

Boone is only a short 20 minute drive, and just 30 minutes to Blowing Rock.  

Come and see why people fall hopelessly in love with our mountains and you'll understand what John Muir meant when he wrote that iconic phrase, "the mountains are calling, and I must go."
