    Let's all go to Waynesville

    Sayonara, city life _ hello, great outdoors. Just outside the Pisgah National Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Waynesville is a nature lover's paradise in the heart of Appalachia. Known for its laid-back lifestyle and bounty of natural beauty, you can also enjoy the area's bustling arts scene _ it's just a short drive from the funky shops and eclectic eateries of nearby Asheville. A Waynesville vacation rental will put you close to local sights like the Biltmore Estate, the Wheels Through Time Motorcycle Museum, and the North Carolina Museum of Handicrafts.

    Waynesville _ a charming town all year round

    A true mecca for outdoorsy types, Waynesville really has it all. Summer visitors flock to the area for its lakes, rivers, and streams, and Lake Junaluska is a major destination for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. The bounty of national parks in the area means you'll never run out of new trails to explore, and the famed Appalachian Trail can be found just an hour's drive from town. During the colder months, skiing is a popular pastime, and you'll find 18 runs for skiers of all skill levels at the Cataloochee Ski Area.

    Waynesville _ not just blowing smoke in the Smokies

    Sure, Waynesville's got plenty of killer forests to choose from, but you'd be missing out if you didn't lose at least a few hours amid the scenic splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Here, you'll find more than half a million acres of old growth forests, rocky peaks, and more hiking trails than you can shake a stick at. Back in town, check out the Museum of North Carolina Handicrafts, where you can get up close and personal with local craftwork in a historic 1875 farmhouse.

    Warm weather and white winters in Waynesville

    Waynesville has an oceanic climate, which means warm summers, cool winters, and a decent amount of rain and snowfall throughout the year. Summer highs average around 80 degrees in July and August, while the mild winter highs tend to hover in the low 50s from December through February. Spring and fall are crisp, with highs around 60 in November and March. Since the crowds tend to pack in for both the summer hiking and winter ski seasons, spring and fall are generally the best seasons to score a solid deal on your Waynesville vacation rental.

    Waynesville's wild, wonderful wilderness

    All around your Waynesville vacation rental, you can spot the low-lying peaks, wooded mountainsides, and scenic river valleys of the Great Smoky Mountains. The Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests are also nearby, and you'll find a number of rivers, streams, and lakes in the area, too. The mountains themselves are home to several species of wildlife, including deer, coyotes, woodchucks, beavers, and otters, as well as the occasional black bear. At higher elevations, you can find scenic meadows, and springtime wildflower blooms make for some pretty spectacular displays, while the area's red and orange foliage is a major draw in the fall.
