A thriving mountain town

Founded in the mid-18th century, Bakersville is a pretty little mountain town that enjoys a laidback atmosphere and an abundance of outdoor activities. You can immerse yourself in the artistic community, particularly during the annual Creek Walk Arts Festival. If you visit during the weekend, you can wander through the town's 2 farmer's markets and buy up some delicious local produce to cook, back at your Bakersville vacation rental. Alternatively, you can lace up your boots to go hiking along the trails or saddle up to gallop along the mountainous equestrian pathways.

Things to do

Delve into Bakersville's art scene

If all the outdoor activities just sound like too much effort, fear not, there's plenty of thing to keep you occupied. If you jump in the car and drive up to the Roan Mountain, as well as enjoy the picture-perfect views, you can wander through the pretty rhododendron gardens. Back in town, you can discover Bakersville's art scene by browsing the little art galleries and studios, many of which are open to the public. It's well worth swinging by The Orchard at Altapass, where you can pick your own apples and buy all sorts of apple-related products.

Activities

Pan for gold or hit the river rapids

The nearby Cherokee National Forest provides endless opportunities for outdoor fun. If you're bringing the family, pack up a picnic and head for the hills to walk the winding trails and admire the breathtaking views. While you're there, you can try your hand at panning for gold, raft along the rivers or even spend a night under canvas and the stars. With the famous Appalachian Trail close by to your Bakersville vacation rental, you'll be in for some great walking. If you don't want to go to the mountains, you can find a challenging golf course down near Spruce Pine.

Weather

Enjoy the crisp mountain mornings

The mountain town rarely gets too hot or too cold. If you visit during spring, many of the scenic trails will be carpeted in colorful wildflowers. The heat creeps up during summer, but the mornings can still be wonderfully crisp and are the best times for exploring the nearby Cherokee National Forest across the state in Tennessee. If you plan to bring the family, just be sure to book up your Bakersville vacation rental early. Don't discount winter, which brings in bursts of snow that blanket the mountain landscape, turning it into a playground for snowmobilers and cross-country skiers.

Natural features

Point your binoculars to the sky

It may not be in North Carolina, but you're only a short drive from more than 500,000 acres of pristine woodland in the Cherokee National Forest. If you're an avid twitcher, the park should be particularly exciting for you, with common sightings of blue jays and warblers, not to mention the hawks and eagles which circle overhead, keeping their beady eyes out for prey below. Along the rivers, you will likely catch a glimpse of a playful otter or 2 and shy white-tailed deer darting off through the trees. Just remember to bring your binoculars.
