Winter in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. It doesn't get much better than this. It snows just enough to make everything look beautiful, but not enough to make it difficult to get around. We got about one inch of snow today but the roads are completely clear and passable.
The weather this weekend is supposed to be clear with temperatures in the 40's for highs and the 20's for lows. What great weather to read a good book by the fire, go for a brisk walk around Lake Junaluska, try your luck at Harrah's Casino in Cherokee, go horseback riding at Panther Creek, take an eco-tour of Cataloochee Valley or just get some much needed rest.
If you're looking to stay in Waynesville, there's always great shopping, fine dining and fun movies at The Strand Retro Movie Theater. With three micro-breweries in town, you're sure to find a brew that appeals to even the most discriminating beer drinker. And don't forget to check out HART theater's schedule of plays and musicals this year.
At Brookside Mountain Mist Inn, we have only one room left this coming weekend (1/17 & 1/18/14), the Pinehurst Room. This room boasts two queen beds, mountain views from the corner windows, two swivel rockers, fireplace, 3 x 5 walk-in shower, flat-screen TV with cable and DVD player and it's own mini-refrigerator. Did I mention our DVD movie library consisting of over 140 titles from which to choose? Did I mention the three-course, gourmet breakfast each morning?
Come see us this weekend and we'll even give you discounted rates on all our Segway tours! Half tours (1 - 1 1/2 hours) are only $35 and full tours (2 - 2 1/2 hours) are only $45 any day of the week. That's a savings of up to $20 per person per tour!
Come for the scenery, stay for the adventure! Let us be "Your Luxury Smoky Mountain Escape".
