There are no shortage of beautiful areas to take a cool dip in water near Asheville during this warm weather season. Whether very popular or hardly known, there are options for your vacation that offer inexpensive fun in nature. Please note: exercise caution whenever getting in any natural body of water, as heavy rain can create stronger currents.

Our Trout Pond has just been stocked and is ready for the warm weather fun of fishing right outside your luxury cabin! For your convenience we keep corn (yes, whole kernel corn) in our office for you to use as bait - free of charge! When you are down at the trout pond waiting on your catch, you might meet the pond residents: our beautiful ducks!

We have a couple of our regular ducks that come back every year, so the new fellas are fitting right in! We also have some geese that enjoy our pond. Don't be surprised if you see them hanging out while you fish, just floating by or splashing around to stay cool. The wildlife on our property varies from season to season, so no matter when you come to visit you will get a taste of WNC nature. Whether deers or ducks, it is always an exciting experience!

If you have a cabin close to the pond, you can watch them play while relaxing on your back deck. Our trout pond is a great place to relax and unwind. You'll feel far from the hustle and bustle of Asheville, but you're actually just a 15-minute drive to the city center. Call us at (800)235-2474 for more info and availability!

Get ready for a one-of-a-kind Biltmore experience this year at Biltmore! The Chihuly exhibit starts May 17th, and promises to add even more beauty and opulence to the gorgeous Biltmore House.

Here is a list of activities to not miss during your stay:
