Key facts for stays in Blue Ridge Mountains vacation homes

The Blue Ridge Mountains encompass a vast area across many small North Carolina towns. Regardless of which town’s vacation homes you choose, you’ll have access to emergency and non-emergency services and facilities. Though the area is low in crime, alpine environments can have rapidly changing weather conditions, as well as low temperatures in higher elevations, so it’s best to pack a variety of clothing.
