Fall leaves and THANKSGIVING in the mountains: Leaves are the big draw for the month of October, but September offers solitude and wonderful weather. Floridians enjoy September for the cool nights and the temperate days. Fall is a great time to relax and take in all the color and splendor that nature has to offer. Popular fall craft shows abound in the area and 'leaf watchers' take daily rides to see the changes throughout October. Special rates are available in Sept, Oct, Nov. early Dec, so there's no reason to hesitate and get away!
Thanksgiving is that special 'together time' for families. Bring the whole gang for the holidays and enjoy the open views after the leaves have fallen. Eat, drink, and be together and then take a long hike to lose those calories! Hiking is best during November as the leaves are down and the views are spectacular! Before everyone exits to go back to reality, pick out and chop down your very own Christmas tree--a family tradition that will make the Thanksgiving mountain holiday complete!
Christmas and New Years viewing the lake and mts.: Christmas is a wonderfully peaceful time in the mountains. The nearby towns of Highlands and Cashiers have special Christmas tree lighting festivals and everywhere the tiny Christmas lights abound. The lake is quiet, but the views are still unbelievable from the cozy lakefront living room. With a cup of hot cocoa and the fireplace blazing, many families have 'reconnected' with each other while working on a puzzle, playing cards, or having a game of Scrabble. Bring your jacket and mittens to chop down your own tree to make this Christmas a memorable time for the entire family. Let the Joy of Christmas draw you and yours to this beautiful family retreat.
Ring in the New Year in peace . If one of your resolutions is to avoid the rush, crowds, and traffic with drunk drivers on New Years Eve, then being on the lake is for you! Go out for a gourmet meal at a local restaurant and then relax with a 'toast to life' in front of the fireplace. Recharge yourself for the new year.

Fall craft festivals are local events, and winter brings fun with snow skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing. Any time and any season is a great time in the mountains on the lake! Most of all, it is a great area to relax with family and to enjoy the cooler temperatures in summer, Fall leaves, or snow skiing.

Ski: Skiing is available at Sapphire Valley (15 minutes away) and Maggie Valley (1 hour away). Not exactly the slopes of the Rockies, but definitely fun for those who are still amateurs. Equipment rental is very affordable, as well. A new snow tubing area has been added and seems to be as popular with the younger folks as downhill skiing.
Maggie Valley is just an hour away and has more challenging slopes. They also rent equipment on site.
When you are all worn out, return home to sit in front of the fireplace with a hot cocoa and a great movie!
