North Carolina is, without question, one of the most beautiful states in America – especially in the mountains. Every year, our Blue Ridge Parkway draw in thousands from around the country to soak in the fresh mountain air and views.
One of the best ways to experience our natural beauty is to stay in a mountain cabin, and now with sites like HomeAway.com, renting a mountain retreat has been easier than ever.
