  • Great place for a family reunion

    "We came from all over the country to celebrate my father's 85th birthday. The house was very comfortable, completely equipped with everything we needed- and some things you we didn't think of, but were glad we had! The beds were comfortable, plenty of seating, great TV, gorgeous views front and back, easy access. And, if you are in an overflow situation, and don't want to rent a second house, the Sea Vista Motel is almost directly across the street. We made good use of the sports closet, which is filled with beach supplies, 4 bicycles and two kayaks. We have these birthday weekso once every five years, and have rented several houses on Topsail. We all agreed, this was the best. My Dad says the only thing missing is an elevator."

  • Blue Ridge Beauty!

    "We enjoyed a relaxing week in this beautiful cabin home. The cabin is cabin is clean and has such a warm feel to it. The kitchen is well equipped as is the game room downstairs. The master has a large bath with a walk in shower and Jacuzzi tub. The cabin has all the comforts of home and then some. I promise you're favorite room will be the screened in porch (where we ate all our meals). It boasts long range mountains views and the relaxing sounds of nature will challenge any hard working brain to slow down and enjoy the moment. There are two decks - one off the 2nd master with 180 views - a beautiful spot to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or a good read. The expansive deck off the main floor runs the full length of the house. The porch swing off the master bedroom was my favorite spot to sit and watch the hummingbirds. We enjoyed a glass of wine by the fire pit and s'mores for dessert nightly under the stars. The perfect way to end the day! Make sure you stop in Todd and go to the Mercantile and then into Boone for dinner one night. We also went to Grandfather Mountain (another must see and you can also see it long range from the deck). The owners are very responsive and truly nice people. Thank you for sharing your gem in the mountains!"

  • Home Away From Home!

    "All the comforts of home in a very well kept cabin ... with plenty to see and do. The views are amazing. We really just loved sitting on the front porch enjoying the peace and quit, while being totally in awe with the humming birds. The Cataloochee Valley (well worth the drive) is a definite must with the herds of Elk, and a day at the Biltmore Estates is an absolute ... what a magnificent place to see. Dave and Debbie are the best host that we have ever had in all of the years that we have been coming to the Smokey Mountains. They have been very helpful from day one when we first made our reservations at the Elk Ridge Cabin. They offer a wealth of information on things to do, places to go and they are just a phone call away if there is anything you should happen to need. What a great couple! And by the way ... the fresh loaf of chocolate chip pumpkin bread that was waiting for us when we arrived was a great touch not to mention very yummy for the tummy. We have already made our reservations for next year!"

North Carolina Travel Tips

North Carolina is a gorgeous coastal state with an interesting history, plenty of nature and many awesome sites for travelers. Here are some of the top things to do and see during your travels to the Tarheel State:

Raleigh

North Carolina’s capital and second-largest city is known as The City of Oaks for its abundance of oak trees, and there’s plenty to do and see here:

Museums

Check out the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences for interesting exhibits and a peek at scientists at work in the Nature Research Center. The North Carolina Museum of Art is another free gem. See works spanning 5,000 years back and let the kids explore sculptures in the surrounding nature trails at Museum Park. The fountains in the beautiful Rodin Courtyard are also a must-see. Visit North Carolina Museum of History, also free, to see the state’s story from 18th century clay pottery to the Wright Brothers’ historic flights. The Marbles Kids Museum isn’t free but has plenty of interactive exhibits for learning through play, including a near-life-size chess game, a faux pizza shop and a massive pirate ship replica.

Nature

- Take a walk among the flowers at the JC Raulston Arboretum or the Raleigh Little Theatre Rose Garden. The acres and acres of blooms, plants and hiking trails at the North Carolina Botanical Garden in nearby Chapel Hill are also a must-visit.

- Ride the train and carousel and rent paddle boats in Pullen Park, just east of North Carolina State’s north campus.

- Go bicycling, hiking and horseback riding in Umstead State Park in northwest Raleigh.

- Hike Bobbitt Hole Trail or kayak on a rushing river in 3900 acres of hills, oaks and scenic beauty in Eno River State Park.

Charlotte

North Carolina’s largest city is the home of NASCAR’s Hall of Fame, and there’s plenty to do and see in the Queen City:

What to Do

- Go wild at the 105-acre Carowinds water and theme park, which has something for everyone.

- Engage in hands-on science and technology projects and see a science-themed documentary at Discovery Place in Uptown.

- Stroll in scenic, 98-acre Freedom Park and be on the lookout for beautiful butterflies and birds.

- Be adventurous! Visit the U.S. National Whitewater Center to go whitewater rafting on the nearby Catawba River, zipline or take a ropes course through the trees and try your hand - or rather feet - at stand-up paddleboarding.

- Spend time with the kids at ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center. It’s technically a library, but there are toys, exhibits, computer games and a theater. Check the schedule and buy tickets to one of many excellent traveling theater companies’ shows.

- Bike near the creek in scenic and relaxing Little Sugar Creek Greenway.

- Catch a Carolina Panthers NFL game at Bank of America Stadium.

What to See

- Check out the massive collection of art at the Mint Museum in Uptown. One of the most interesting exhibits is the collection of American and European textiles and costumes.

- Pay a visit to Carolina Raptor Center in northwest suburb Huntersville to learn about raptors - the hawk-like bird, not the dinosaur - and meet some of the resident orphan or injured raptors.

- Learn about African American history, art and culture at the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts & Culture.

- Take a hike and look for creatures native to North Carolina at the McDowell Nature Center and Preserve.

- See early planes up close and learn the history of flight and North Carolina’s important role in it at the Carolina Aviation Museum

- View exhibits about Charlotte’s post-Civil War history at the Levine Museum of the New South.

Outer Banks

The Outer Banks are a popular visitor destination due to their natural beauty and shore location. Here are some excellent things to do and see on the Outer Banks:

- Take a lighthouse tour. Visit Cape Hatteras Lighthouse - the nation’s tallest - which had to be moved inland for preservation. On a cool day or during the early morning hours,climb to the top for gorgeous coastal views. Other lighthouses worth a visit include the one at Currituck Beach - supposedly haunted due to its dark history, the one on Bodie Island just south of Nags Head and Ocracoke Island’s lighthouse.

- Hit the miles of beautiful beaches! Frisco Beach on Hatteras Island is one of the best. Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head is a great place to climb the dunes and watch the sunset and Currituck Beach is perfect for sunbathing and horseback riding.

- Learn about the area’s history of shipwrecks - and even see some remnants - at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum on Hatteras Island. The structure itself is worth a view as it was made from part of an old boat’s hull.

- Stroll through the marine forest on the wooden boardwalk of the Estuarine Nature Walk in Corolla.
