Head for the hills in alternative Asheville

Throw your favorite trail mix in your trusty hemp tote—you're going to Asheville! Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in eastern North Carolina, Asheville is a chilled-out southern town known for its art deco architecture, funky shops, and eclectic dining, as well as a wealth of preserved natural beauty. Outdoorsy types flock to the city for its numerous campsites and hiking trails, while the nearby Lake Lure offers plenty of opportunities for boating, fishing, and swimming. Home to a thriving alternative scene, your Asheville vacation rental will also put you close to plenty of bookstores, vegan restaurants, and live music venues.

Just act natural in Asheville's great outdoors

With plenty of rivers, lakes, and hiking trails in the area, Asheville is a nature lover's paradise. A short drive from your Asheville vacation rental, you'll find the Blue Ridge Mountains, a scenic wilderness of wooded slopes and winding mountain streams. Camping, hunting, and fishing are popular in the area, and the stunning foliage displays are a big hit with visitors during the fall. Back in town, you can check out Asheville's numerous hip shops and restaurants, and you can watch live shows by local and national bands most nights of the week.

Asheville's mountains, mansions, music, and more

If it's nature you crave, head to the Pisgah National Forest, where you'll find more than half a million acres of wilderness amid the Blue Ridge and Great Balsam mountain ranges. Or you can check out the Biltmore Estate, a massive Gilded Age manor where you can tour the art-filled mansion, as well as its sprawling, Olmsted-designed grounds and rose garden. For a more modern look at Asheville, visit the headquarters of Moog, the country's preeminent manufacturer of analog synthesizers. Here, you can see how the handcrafted instruments are built with a guided—and free—tour of the factory.

Make time for Asheville all year round

Like most of the region, Asheville has a humid subtropical climate, which means warm summers, relatively mild winters, and regular precipitation throughout the year. Average summer highs peak at 84 degrees in July, while winter temperatures range from the upper 20s to the upper 40s from December through February. Snowfall is relatively common during the winter months, and skiing is a popular pastime in the area. Asheville is busiest in the summer, and you'll find that lower temperatures usually translate to lower rates on Asheville vacation rentals during the cooler winter months.

See the sights in natural North Carolina

Asheville lies in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where the Swannanoa and French Broad rivers meet. Lake Lure, a scenic man-made lake, is a short drive away, and you'll find plenty of space for waterfront activities throughout the region. The 500,000-acre Pisgah National Forest boasts rocky peaks, old-growth forests, and rushing mountain streams, as well as miles and miles of hiking trails, including a stretch of the famed Appalachian Trail. The park is also home to numerous species of wildlife, including deer, river otters, and even the occasional black bear.
