There's more to Marshall than Main Street

The historic town of Marshall lies along the French Broad River and oozes mountain charm. Victorian brick buildings flank the town's Main Street and include the old courthouse. Many of these have been transformed into eclectic boutiques, art galleries and cafes, not to mention live music venues and fine restaurants. If you can drag yourself away from the town and your Marshall vacation rental, you've got 55,000 acres of pristine forest providing countless opportunities for outdoor activities and family fun. There are few places as good for wildlife spotting as the habitats that surround Marshall.

River rapids and hiking trails

Even within the boundaries of Madison country, you've got more acres of forest than you could possibly explore, a large section of the Appalachian Trail and the French Broad River. The possibilities for recreation are almost limitless but among the highlights for many are the winding hiking trails, which change with the seasons. For an adrenaline kick, you can board rafts to hit the river rapids, ride down the rocky mountain biking pathways or glide down through the treetops on zip lines. For something a little more peaceful, settle into an afternoon of fishing along the banks of the river.

Explore Marshall's thriving art scene

You'll find a great deal lies within easy reach of your Marshall vacation rental. Just a short drive away is the town of Hot Springs, where you can soak in the mineral-rich waters, which reportedly have healing properties. If you plan to visit after a hike, book up early as there are plenty who want to visit after a long day on the trails. The county is known for artisan craftspeople, including glassblowers and potters, who open their studio doors for visitors passing through. Afterwards, be sure to swing by the Mad For Madison Arts & Crafts Gallery.

Hikers should visit during spring

The mountain climate of Marshall is rather good all year around. The spring months can be chilly, but are often bright and sunny, the ideal weather for hiking or biking. July to August are the high season months, so be sure to book up your Marshall vacation rental early. If you're lucky enough to nab one, you'll be treated to glorious weather. After the summer crowds have disappeared, the famous fall foliage bursts into color and winter sees plenty of snow, which is used by locals for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

Busy beavers and circling falcons

Many of the animals that were once endangered are making a comeback – it's not necessary to go on tour to feel as if you're on a wildlife safari. Just a walk along the trails reveals a whole host of fascinating creatures. Expect otters playing or catching fish in the rivers, peregrine falcons circling overhead and beavers busy damming up the streams and brooks, as well as backyard critters like foxes and squirrels. While rarer, reports of black bears with cubs in tow are not that uncommon. All this could be just a short drive away from your Marshall vacation rental.
