Here are skiing options that are so close to our cabins that you can easily make a day of it!
Cataloochee: Located in Maggie Valley, close to the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains and only an hour drive from our cabins. Cataloochee Ski Resort offers a run for every skill level, and is considered to be one the best in the Southeast. There's 18 skiing and snowboarding slopes, and lessons are offered. First timers need not worry!
Wolf Ridge: The closest to Asheville city center is Wolf Ridge Ski - 30 minutes north of Asheville and so much fun. There are 15 runs and 4 lifts.
Beech Mountain: Called the "coolest city" in North Carolina due the low low temperatures and high elevation. Skiing is the sport of choice in Beech Mountain, and the snowfall each year is perfect for enjoying a winter wonderland not too far from the city. The average annual snowfall is 84 inches, so be prepared to need 4-wheel drive or snow chains to access the resort. If skiing is not your thing, there is also snow hiking and snowshoes to rent. 2 hours from Asheville.
Banner Elk: Banner Elk is a gorgeous green space that every winter becomes a beautiful winter wonderland. Located between Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain, you won't be far from skiing in this town. There are tree farms for the holidays, and a surprisingly varied selection of restaurants for a town with a population of just 1,000.
Don't forget: when you stay at Asheville Cabins of Willow Winds in January, February or March, you can either receive a 10% discount, OR, stay two nights and get your third night free! That's more money to enjoy in the beautiful WNC mountains. Just ask us about our Winter Special when booking.
The Fall color is starting to show this week, and we couldn't be more excited! These gorgeous hues of orange and maroon only make the beautiful city of Asheville even MORE glorious.
While weekends are booked up, we have availability on the weekdays with an incentive as exciting as our foliage - 25% off weekdays at Asheville Cabins with our Weekday Super Saver. The weekdays are just as gorgeous as the weekend, and undoubtedly not as crowded around town. You can stay in a fully-appointed luxury cabin home, complete with wood-burning fireplace and relaxing hot tub without breaking the bank. Give us a try, and I am sure you'll be won over by all the amenities you don't get in a hotel.
Why settle for the four walls of a hotel room when visiting Asheville, when you can experience the beauty of the outdoors in your backyard? At Asheville Cabins, you aren't just staying close to Asheville, you are within the city limits. We are only a 15 minute drive to downtown Asheville, and 7 minutes to Biltmore - but it's not our proximity to the city center that sets us apart: we are located on a 40-acre woodland garden, situated close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and our property is home to wildlife you won't find at a hotel.
Asheville is a perfect destination for a romantic vacation. With a natural landscape of breath-taking mountains, and nearby restaurants with creative menus, you can build an itinerary of exciting new experiences you can't get anywhere else. Here's a couple of suggestions for your mountain getaway:
