WELCOME TO RUTHERFORDTON, NORTH CAROLINA

Established in 1787, Rutherfordton is among the oldest towns in western North Carolina and is the seat of the oldest continuous government in the region. Steeped in history since the Revolutionary War, this Town has managed to keep its “old time” charm while progressing into the 21st century. From the cluster of antebellum houses in the historic district at the north end of Town to the fiber optic hub on the south end, this Town spans centuries.

Downtown Rutherfordton is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district and is a beautiful representation of rural western North Carolina small towns. Situated on ridges, its elevations offer great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and its location in the Isothermal Belt means mild weather and outstanding beauty in four distinct seasons.

WELCOME TO MORGANTON, NORTH CAROLINA

Established in 1784, Morganton is the county seat and cultural, governmental, financial and commercial center of Burke County, NC. The City sits in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains on Interstate 40 (I-40) between Hickory and Asheville, and Table Rock mountain provides a beautiful backdrop for residents and visitors. MIA BELLA VISTA is between Rutherfordton and Morganton on scenic NC HWY 64, with views of the awesome South Mountain State Park, the largest State Park in North Carolina, and is surrounded by Box Creek Wilderness, a 12,000 acre forest of untouched natural beauty.

SOUTH MOUNTAIN STATE PARK

Nestled in the North Carolina Wilderness and minutes from MIA BELLA VISTA, South Mountains State Park is the perfect place to enjoy nature. Here you can see a majestic mountain range peeking out from the gently rolling landscape of the piedmont.

The park includes elevations up to 3,000 feet, a waterfall dropping 80 feet and more than 40 miles of trails. From equestrian camping to trout fishing, mountain biking to picnicking, a number of activities are available at South Mountains State Park.

Visit one of the state's most rugged parks. Hike the trail to High Shoals Falls to witness the roar of the waterfall as it pours into a large pool. Backpack through the woodlands for primitive camping. Fish for trout in miles of mountain streams, or bicycle along the 17-mile mountain-bike loop. That's not all! More of the best sights in the country await you at CHIMNEY ROCK STATE PARK and LAKE LURE, locations for films such as Dirty Dancing, and Last of the Mohicans. A must see!

CHIMNEY ROCK STATE PARK

Is the natural fulfillment of your trip to the North Carolina mountains. Take a deep breath of refreshing mountain air, become invigorated by our hiking trails, and let your cares fade away in the cool mist of Hickory Nut Falls. This is the perfect place to reconnect with nature and spend time with family and friends. Only minutes from Lake Lure, Chimney Rock offers the best of the mountains in one place – spectacular 75-mile views, hiking trails for all ages, a 404-foot waterfall, a variety of events and more. Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park is proud to be part of the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area and is located just 25 miles southeast of Asheville, NC

MIA BELLA VISTA IS A FINALIST FOR THE 2014 NORTH CAROLINA MODERNIST HOME OF THE YEAR. A GREAT HONOR FOR GOLDEN CREEK!
