  • A week in paradise

    "This is no cabin-it's a resort! It's not easy to find a 4 bedroom rental with 3 full bathrooms-one on every level. And these bedrooms have queen and king beds-no bunks! There is a futon in the loft (what a view) and another in the game room (great pool table and dartboard). I believe this place is 4 yrs. old but it's like walking into a brand new house. Everything is immaculate. The gas barbecue was huge and like new. Everything is top of the line, from the furniture, to the mattresses, to the washer/dryer. There is so much going on view wise, we wish we had brought bonoculars. On the far off mountainside we could see horses grazing and even closer in the valley we saw cows and goats grazing. Even a fawn passing right below the deck stopped to look at us. Another plus is that the road that takes you up doesn't have narrow turns. We didn't need four-wheel drive. Coming in at night is no problem. GPS works right to the front door. After your rental is finalized, the owner emails you the entry code-easy coming and going for our guests. I did a lot of looking and this is worth every dollar."

  • Excellent cottage

    "This cottage is a great place to stay. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Sara's cottage. It was exactly as described. There are so many features of this cottage that we loved. It was clean, comfortable, and convenient to anything we needed. When looking for a place to stay we would definitely recommend this cottage. We would love to stay in this cottage again. We are so lucky to have chosen this cottage, and had the pleasure of meeting Sara. If you are looking for a place to stay, choose this cottage and you will not be disappointed."

  • "Spectacular" is spot on.

    "Stayed here the first week of June, 2014. Photos really do not do the place justice. It is every bit as advertised and then some. Renting the available pontoon boat is highly recommended. The entire outdoor stone fireplace terrace/grotto area is absolutely amazing, and if my wife and I could have somehow stuffed all of it into the trunk of our car to magically re-install at our home, we would have! Lake Lure / Chimney Rock is a wonderful place for a family vacation, with perfect water temperatures in the Lake, even this early in the summer. Rent this place and you will not be disappointed. You will be very sad to leave, though."

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.
