What makes Asheville famous?

It’s not Biltmore Estate, Breweries or BBQ

If you wanna know what has made Asheville famous, literally putting this mountain jewel on the #1 list of almost every travel list, it has nothing to do with the Biltmore Estate or the grand Grove Park Inn.

And, no, it’s not the great food events like the recent Chow Chow multi-day, culinary extravaganza with appearances from famous chefs like Jose Andres and Asheville’s own Katie Button.

And, no, it’s not all the craft breweries or BBQ joints like Buxton Hall or even the great golfing, cycling, hiking, and rafting. And, no, it’s not even the unique experiences like salt caves and public saunas or axe throwing. You’re still wrong if you think it’s our area’s dedication to honeybees and butterflies or the very real possibility that you will see bears… and elk…. and even white squirrels.

HINT: 🍂 It’s natural and in season NOW!

What attracts EVERYONE to Asheville are the leaves. Yep. Leaves. These ain’t your normal leaves. These are a vibrant display of fall leaves showing every color in the Fall spectrum and when you see them displayed on nature’s backdrop… well, wow, just WOW. It makes people slow down at speeds so slow you wonder what’s wrong. It’s the one thing that will make you, your kids and even your dog and stare out of their windows and into the blue yonder.

Combine that with cooler temperatures, light breezes, that Fall fading sunset glow, hot cider, pumpkin spice and corn mazes and you’ll understand what has really made Asheville famous. For us locals, we’re just lucky to live here. It’s free and all around us and available for anyone to enjoy!

Here is a video showing just what we’re talking about. This video is from 2012 and lucky for us, this happens every year!

We’re so crazy about our fall leaf season that we even have predictions and maps. Here is this year’s map:

TIP: How to enjoy Asheville’s Leaf Season:

So, come and “check-in” to the mountains, drive and enjoy one of the most spectacular natural events in our area – it’s free to enjoy! Here’s our recommendations:

  1. Book your stay at any of of our properties – click here to view properties. But be quick because they’re already going fast!
  2. Bring a picnic basket and your bestie (even the four footed kind)
  3. Take a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and pick your favorite place to chillax
  4. Then, sit back and enjoy the beautiful display ~

Asheville Vacation Getaway: How to “Book End” the Dog Days of Summer and new property alert!

The “Dog Days of Summer” are just above over. These days refer to the hottest period of summer beginning with July 3rd and ending August 11th.

For history buffs: The phrase “Dog Days” came from the Egyptians with the rising of the Dog star, Sirius (large dog), which came just before the seasonal flooding of the Nile River. These were “watchdog” days and known as happy times. Source

Start with LEAF, August 2 – 3, 2019

How about “book ending” your Dog Days of Summer, Mountain style starting with the LEAF Festival? What is it? If you’ve ever wanted to experience family fun with lots of other families in the great outdoors of western North Carolina in the heart of one of the fastest growing most popular mountain towns with fabulous music and food, then you need to attend the LEAF Festival in downtown Asheville on August 2 – 3, 2019. To see the entire schedule, click visit:

End Your Summer with your favorite BFFs

After that head back to the mountains for a last summer BFF Trip with your closest friends before school starts back. These first two weeks of August are perfect for that girls/guys weekend away – rates are reasonable (they seriously go up Labor Day and all of the Fall season in the WNC mountains) and the mountain weather is perfect. It’s hot but the mountain air is slightly cooler and our evenings are fabulously cool. Just enough to leave the windows open and feel that cool morning mountain air.

Family Summer Getaway The Way They Used To Be – Now Available

Mountain Forest Escape in Lake Lure and Chimney Rock

Great summer vacations are made of week long family stays in the mountains near a lake with access to hiking, mountain biking and sitting back on the porch enjoying 180 degree mountain top views.   Inspired Getaway has two great summer vacation home rentals with easy paved access and within minutes to Lake Lure and Chimney Rock.

These homes provide easy driving access to:

  • popular golf resort (Rumbling Bald Resort)
  • 720 acres of lake (paddleboarding and sunset dinner cruises) at Lake Lure
  • family friendly beach (Lake Lure beach) with activities
  • hiking trails
  • strolling around quaint shops in historic Chimney Rock and Lake Lure.

Guests can immerse themselves in the same natural landscape which formed the majestic backdrop for the movies Dirty Dancing and Last of the Mohicans.  Nothing about that natural landscape from those movies has changed.  You can even hike and walk along the same paths on Chimney Rock!

Best of all, you are close to nature and wildlife.   Don’t be surprised to see deer in your front yard as you sip your morning coffee or as you unwind at the end of a fun day with a burnt orange sunset over your balcony.

On top of that Asheville is a simple day trip – drive 1 hour and you can visit the Biltmore Estate, shop downtown Asheville or take a self-guided beer tour starting with Sierra Nevada Brewery.  So….

Are you ready to book your family summer vacation?
