We just came back from a few days at Infinity Ridge and our only wish is that we could have stayed longer! This was a very last minute trip and we really felt like we lucked out! The pictures and reviews seemed great, and it was all true! We were there with our 6yo twins, and we all had a wonderful time. The cabin is just beautiful and truly felt like a home away from home. Not just a rental, but truly a place where you know the owners come on a regular basis. It had everything we could have asked for, a well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, great deck and porch... The wide open views of the mountains were absolutely beautiful at any time of the day! We loved watching the sunset on the porch... We felt totally alone there, no sounds except for the sounds of the waterfall and of the birds. So peaceful and relaxing!
We hiked down to the waterfall the day we arrived, it was a fun adventure and was definitely worth it, but it truly was very steep! It would have been hard with younger kids than ours.
We loved hiking at Chimney Rock State Park, the views are really beautiful! Don't miss the hike to the waterfalls! We also went fishing on Lake Lure at Morse park, our kids were very excited to go fishing for the first time! We did a day trip to Asheville and it was great to explore. There is also a great hike only a few miles from the cabin at the end of Shumont Dr: Eagle Rock. It only took us about 15 min to hike up there and you can climb up some big rocks for incredible views on the mountains. And we didn't see anyone else, which was great!
The only thing that i would have liked to have is maybe a small binder/folder with some recommendations from the owners on places to visit, best restaurants in the area, maps, etc. There were a few brochures, local magazines, but it felt more like a random collection, which I think was more from various visitors leaving some brochures. We added a few to that collection as well! This was our first time in the area and since it was a last minute trip we hadn't done any pre-planning. We picked up brochures and maps along the way, and did some internet research once there, and that worked totally fine, but I always love to know what the locals recommend, have so maps, brochures etc to look so when you arrive.
All in all a wonderful trip and the perfect cabin if you really want to relax yet be close to a wide variety of options for day trips. We all said we would love to come back! Thank you for a wonderful stay
