  • It's the PERFECT place!

    "We just returned from a weekend stay with my mom, husband and our three-year-old twins and we could not have found a better cabin to meet our needs. Our boys LOVED the cabin décor and we loved the fact that the place was so well-stocked with linens, pillows, towels and even dishes, pots, pans, condiments and COFFEE! The beds were very cozy and comfy (even the pull-out couch in the living area) and my mom really appreciated the FULL bath in the loft area. The grounds were SO cool with plenty of fun swings and lots of nature to explore. The house was very clean and just had an overall welcoming feel. It really felt like we were spending the weekend at a friend's mountain place instead of in a rental cabin. We loved the home's style, character, layout and location. We also were only about 20 minutes away from Tweetsie Railroad and our boys went wild over all of the Christmas tree farms, horses, cows and other animals we passed on the way up and down the mountain. We definitely hope to return. This place is a real GEM and an awesome deal if you want to take a trip to the mountains and make a lot of good memories without having to pack everything but your kitchen sink and spend a lot of money. You should definitely check it out! We are so glad that we did!"

  • Perfect Fall Getaway at Pumpkin Patch Chalet!!

    "We SO enjoyed our stay at Pumpkin Patch Chalet! It is the perfect location for side trips to Emerald Village, Linville Caverns, Grandfather Mountain, and Linville Falls, all of which we enjoyed tremendously. Our four young children mostly enjoyed exploring the woods around the chalet while we parents sat on the beautiful deck with a glass of wine and enjoyed the amazing view. :) Your home is gorgeous and well stocked with everything we needed and more to have the perfect Fall getaway with our family. Thank you very much!!!"

  • Beautiful, relaxing and comfortable!

    "This vacation rental is everything is is advertised to be. It's location is secluded yet within 30 minutes of Asheville. It is clean and comfortable. The hot tube is a very nice feature for an evening of star gazing and relaxing after a day of hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We are so grate to be able to bring our dog. It made for a wonderful experience without the worry of have to board him. Craig and Michelle were very helpful and accomodating. Thank you for an excellent stay."

Old Fort Travel Tips

Old Fort Vacation Rentals Serve As Bridge to History

Named in the vein of the "old fort" living that proceeded the Revolutionary War, Old Fort vacation rentals scenically sit just east of Asheville at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, near the head of the Catawba River and just off the Continental Divide. For more than 8,000 years, the cozy Western North Carolina town has reverently provided its lure of old-school charms and southern-styled hospitality. Persistent sounds of nature and flowing mountain air breezes make the appeal of trout or fly-fishing at nearby Newberry Creek all the more enticing. Private Blue Ridge Mountain cabins can offer cozy dining facilities, charmingly enhanced by native stone fireplaces, and fully kitchens replete with modern cabinetry; they also can offer the combination of spacious bedrooms and hand-crafted staircases leading to open-air loft spaces, which make your stay all the more heavenly.

Old Fort Cabin Living, New Age Tourism

At the heart of the Old Fort, Blue Ridge Mountains Resorts beat the pulse of exorbitant, charmed North Carolina living at its most rich and refined. Immerse yourself in attractions ranging from skiing at nearby resorts, hiking any one of several wondrous trails, climbing Grandfather Mountain, or simply chilling out via a rocker under the crystal blue skies and basking sunlight.

Old Fort Lodging, History Fully on Display

Explore North Carolina's history through the prism of a number of world famous museums, including the state-run Mountain Gateway, which features riveting exhibits on pioneer living bolstered by a pair of authentic log cabins from that era. Also, the nearby Carson House boasts exhibits that extensively delve into Civil War lore, including a wildly popular and historic Davy Crockett themed exhibit. And then there are the Appalachian Artisan Gallery and Old Fort Music Hall, where exhibitions exuding both handmade art and bluegrass themed music revues are likewise delightfully common.
