  • Amazing trip with dear friends in perfect house and location!

    "We wanted to find a perfect location to spend a few days with dear friends before our two oldest children left for college for their freshman year. This home could not have been more perfect in every way! It is located in the beautiful Lake Toxaway in the mountains. The three bedrooms on the main floor all had their own bathrooms and amazingly comfortable beds. The kitchen is very updated and fully stocked with absolutely anything you could imagine you would need. The large den with the high ceiling is a very comfortable way for all of to hang out and spend great time together. The huge deck was great for card games and other games with a great view for all of us! The downstairs has 2 bunk beds and a couch - perfect for the three girls. The house is just up from the golf course and the marina where you can rent boats. It is all a short drive from Sapphire Valley and Cashiers where there are lots of great restaurants and shops (Mica's and Cornu Copia and the Sapphire Valley Brewing Company) - and of course right around the corner from our favorite Brown Trout restaurant. We also had a great trip to the waterfalls and a hike all close by. It was all in all the perfect vacation which allowed us to create wonderful memories for years to come! Most of all, the owners were fabulous and very easy to work with - and made us feel like we were their personal guests for the weekend."

  • Great place!!

    "The cottage was cozy and had everything my husband and I needed for a fall getaway. Mornings and evenings on the screened porch were wonderful, so quiet! The area was fantastic for day trips. We'll definitely be back."

  • Fantastic home-away-from-home.

    "My parents and I stayed here while we spent a few days exploring Asheville. It was absolutely wonderful and perfect for us. I can't say enough good things about this townhouse. Everything was clean and new-looking (even the pots and pans!), and it had everything we needed. Plus, it was only a 20 minute drive to downtown Asheville. Everyone we spoke to while booking and checking in to the townhouse was really nice and very helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Asheville. You won't find a nicer place."

  • Perfect spot

    "We just had a family reunion last week and some of us stayed at Lake Living II. The configuration of the house is perfect for large families. The lake access from shore and off the dock were perfect. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't provided. I highly recommend this home for a perfect vacation."

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.
