  • Home Away From Home

    "We were looking for a place to stay in Banner Elk while we attended a friend's wedding. We looked on VRBO and found Minorcan Ridge. It was a wonderful vacation! The cabin is perfect, and the owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We will definitely come back!"

  • Absolutely Gorgeous!

    "This home is absolutely gorgeous! We had a fabulous time there and there was so much to do. It is very convenient to Boone, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls. The house was absolutely pristine. We enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the beautiful view. The hot tub and pool/air hockey table were a great way to end the day and the home has everything that you could possibly need . The peace and quiet of this home was wonderful, but it was nice to have TV and Internet access as well. The owner was very responsive to all questions and great to deal with! We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend "It's About Time". You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay at this home!"

  • Perfect Ski Weekend

    "We rented this condo in February for a long ski weekend, and we loved it so much we decided to head back the following month! The owner is so very helpful and accommodating. The condo does really have a cabin ambiance. There are so many nice touches that make you feel at home, such as comfortable furniture, great beds and linens, and a well stocked kitchen. The location is perfect for skiing, especially when you have children in tow and are trying to get everyone and their equipement to the slopes! After a fun day of skiing, it was great to come back to the condo and cook, play games and enjoy the fire. We hope to enjoy other weekends at this fantastic place!"

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.
