June is All About Summer Camps and Summer Groups!

Here comes Memorial Day and just around the corner is June!  It’s Summer Camp time! Whether child or adult you’re probably traveling in groups to your summer getaway in the mountains.

Memorial Day and Father’s Day availability

Homes at Inspired Getaway are booked Memorial Day weekend (except for the new one that just came on board – click here for details) but it’s not too late to begin planning for Father’s Day (June 16) or for July 4th.  Plan your dad’s beer, bicycling or golf trip now!

Heads Up! July 4th is a Loooong Weekend

This year July 4th is on a Thursday so many people will probably take the long weekend and book Wednesday through Sunday.  Start making your plans now and check out all of our available homes here.  Escape the heat and book your retreat now!

An exclusive opportunity for Groups

If you’re visiting as a Group, then check out an exclusive in the vacation rental market only offered by Inspired Getaway – an entire 3 acre green-built development neighborhood village where groups can stay together without having to “stay” together.  There are now 5 homes available that are clustered together in one development.  Each family or couple can rent their own home and yet be within walking distance to other family or friends.  No need to spread out in vacation rentals across the Asheville area when you can be together in a convenient location with each group having their own kitchen, bathrooms and common spaces.  Better yet, you don’t have to rent an entire estate – each couple or group can stay in their own home.  Learn more about this short term rental vacation village here or just check out our properties and book now!

Summer is here – enjoy it together!

 

 


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?
