Mountains to Sea Trail Section 16

Mountains to Sea Trail Section 16

The Mountains to Sea TrailĀ  (section 16) passes right by our North Carolina pet friendly cabins. In other words, it is possible to walk out your cabin door, head west, and walk all the way to Tennessee border in the Great Smoky Mountains. Head east and the trail will eventually lead you to the stunning North Carolina coast. Guests of our Blue Ridge Parkway cabins are certainly not obligated to don hiking boots and walk hundreds of miles; but isn’t it nice to know that if you wanted to, you could?

. We are so fortunate to have this great resource in our back yards – we hope you will take time this month to come out and celebrate North Carolina and the Mountains to Sea Trail.

Enjoy our Family Friendly Cabins this Fall

Sometimes the simplest pleasures are the best. Fall is the ideal time to stroll through the woods with your dog at your side – something you can do from your North Carolina pet friendly cabins. Fall is also a great time of year to bring chocolate and graham crackers and marshmallows and make s’mores by the campfire. Take time out this fall to bring your family to our cabins along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Motorcycle Touring the Blue Ridge Parkway

September and October are great months for touring the Blue Ridge Parkway on your motorcycle. With speeds set at no more than 45 miles an hour on the parkway, it is an ideal road for cruising. Plenty of overlooks provide spots to rest where you can enjoy incredible scenery, and our Blue Ridge Mountains cabins are an ideal place for a longer rest during your travels. Here you will enjoy comfortable beds, campfires under the stars, and easy access to all the park’s amenities.

According to Motorcycle Cruiser Magazine, “It doesn’t get much better than this. There just isn’t a road as smoothly paved and beautifully shouldered as the Blue Ridge Parkway. There isn’t a highway that snakes and tunnels quite so brilliantly anywhere. It’s a 469-mile Kodak moment. No commercial vehicles, no billboards, no stoplights.” (Jamie Elvidge, October 2000).

The Blue Ridge Parkway was specifically designed to be a recreational motor road. It connects the Great Smoky Mountains to the south and the Shenandoah National Parks to the north. The road is less crowded in the fall than during the summer, inviting long, uninterrupted cruises. Scenic overlooks start to reveal hints of the vibrant colors to come.

Our Western North Carolina lodging is located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, at milepost marker 250. If you are traveling with several friends or family, consider renting our lodge, which is perfect for larger groups.
