091513_Corn Maze, Elida_2099.LR     Most folks come to our Asheville luxury cabins to get away, but some folks go to the Eliada annual corn maze to get lost. Should you go right or should you go left? And hey, haven’t you been here before? Don’t worry – this corn maze comes with a map and checkpoints, so you won’t be stuck there all night. imgres The Eliada corn maze has become a huge draw and a major fundraiser for the Eliada Homes, a children’s residential and foster center. To make the adventure even more fun for children, they have incorporated two story lines into the maze for children to follow, one of Spookley the Square Pumpkin and another of Ciderella. The fun doesn’t stop with the corn maze, however. They’ve added corn cannons – that’s right, corn cannons – with pumpkin men targets and a cornucopia of family activities, including a pumpkin patch, hayride, cow train, a corn kernel “sandbox,” a haybale maze and a children’s play area.

The Eliada corn maze is a perfect activity to add to all Asheville romantic getaways, too. Eliada Homes’ 200-acre working farm is located just outside of town, so you can pair the trip with a shopping excursion or lunch downtown.
