Why come to the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina for Memorial Day Weekend? First of all, its nice and cool here! Get out of that heat! Next, there's all the really cool stuff to do in the area. One of our recent guests, pictured above, went whitewater rafting. She also went on a canopy tour and did some zip lining. Not your thing? OK, there's also some great hiking trails nearby with various degrees of difficulty. Some of them take you to beautiful waterfalls or grassy knolls that overlook the Smoky Mountains. You could rent a pontoon boat and tour Lake Fontana. Or take a leisurely stroll around Lake Junaluska and view the "Walk of Roses".
Not an outdoors person? No problem, there's great shopping in downtown Waynesville (only a mile from our Inn!). The town of Waynesville is having its first Block Party of the year on May 28th. Main Street will be blocked off to traffic and there will be lots of mountain music, clogging, square dancing, food vendors and the shops will be open late. Into antiques? There are numerous antique stores and malls in the area. Asheville is only 25 minutes away with additional shopping and dining experiences. Don't forget about the Biltmore Estate!
If you just like to view the beauty of the area, there are drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway (only 4 miles from our Inn), into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park or into Pisgah National Forest (lots of waterfalls in this area!). We even have Loop Tour brochures to make sure you get back "home" to the Inn in time for supper!
