    Canton, the home of Big Butt(e) Mountain and Skinny Dip Falls

    Surrounded by the Big Butte Mountains, Canton is a small riverside town in North Carolina's western mountains, with its tongue lodged firmly in cheek. The region was the setting for the novel Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier, which was made into a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman. Book a Canton vacation rental and be moments from the Blue Ridge Parkway, which runs close to the country town. Don't miss a trip to Looking Glass Rock to splash around in the popular swimming hole, Skinny Dip Falls, where clothing is not optional!

    Fancy fly fishing for beginners?

    One of the most popular pastimes in Canton is freshwater fishing. The Pigeon River runs right through the town and offers some of the area's best scenic trails. There are plenty of benches to relax on along the 1.5-mile walk, or bring along a fishing rod and try your hand at fly fishing in the wild, trout-filled river. Bring the day's catch back to your Canton vacation rental, and cook up a storm on the barbecue.
