It seems like half the folk you talk with recently are either moving to North Carolina or know someone who is. Perhaps that is because this state has one of the most comfortable climates of any in the entire nation. Situated just about half way between Manhattan state and Florida, North Carolina offers everything from gorgeous beaches to lush forests to picturesque majestic hills to mountains that will take your breath away. The many different settings in North Carolina make it the perfect destination for nearly everyone. Holiday-makers and permanent residents are flocking to the state in search of quiet mountain getaways and white wonderful beaches of the costal regions and outer banks. With the average summer temperature below ninety degrees, many consider North Carolina weather nearly perfect. One of the most well-liked destinations in North Carolina is the city of Asheville, home to our very own historic Reynolds Mansion B&B.
With its rolling landscape and southern charm, it’s no wonder George Vanderbilt decided on Asheville to build America’s largest non-public home. The Biltmore Estate is a huge dwelling with a floor space of more than 175,000 sq ft. And is still owned by the family and operated as a museum today. The Estate is still a working estate with a dairy farm and winery. The fourth floor of this grand mansion was recently opened to offer its visitors a view of the maid’s quarters and a phenomenal view of the entire estate from the observatory.
Another popular destination is Cherokee and Maggie Valley, the 2 towns that service The Great Smoky Mountains State Park on the eastern side. These towns are the heart of Indian American culture in the Southeast.
While shopping in Cherokee you can experience the days of many years past and what it was like for our native peoples and early settlers of the South. When it comes to selecting this state for your house, something about North Carolina pulls the individual that wants to live in a log cabin. The log cabin building industry is booming in North Carolina as cabins are springing up everywhere in towns such as Maggie Valley, Asheville, Murphy and all along the border with Georgia and South Carolina.
Maggie Valley is one of the more popular places to rent a cabin and just sit back and enjoy God’s beautiful creation. It is the place to sit on the porch of your cabin with a cup of coffee, look off into the distant hills and forget about life for a season. North Carolina also has an opulent past, playing a vital part in the Civil War as well as being renowned for the 1st airplane flight at Kitty Hawk by the Wright siblings. Spend a while exploring the various Civil War battle fields and get a glimpse of struggle our country and our folks endured during a tricky time in our history.
