Stay amid the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina with Inspirato. Both of our homes, Red Maple and Blue Ridge are located within Blue Ridge Mountain Club, an exclusive, 6,200-acre gated community that's described as “living within a national park.” Enjoy sweeping views of western North Carolina high country and easy access to community amenities like a restaurant and bar, fitness center, and more.
Referred to by locals as the “High Country,” western North Carolina is crowned by the Blue Ridge Mountains—ancient, forested hills that are a part of the Appalachian Mountains. This area is home to all manner of outdoor recreation, from hiking and wildlife-viewing to mountain biking, fishing, and bird-watching. Charming small towns like Boone and Blowing Rock are peppered throughout the mountains. Explore the region firsthand by traveling along the world-famous Blue Ridge Parkway, a scenic drive that’s often ranked among the prettiest in the nation.
A private hiking trail within the Blue Ridge Mountain Club community, this two-mile round-trip hike courses through the forest and leads to a scenic pond fed by a small waterfall.
At this living history museum, visitors can step back in time to experience what life was like as an 18th-century homesteader. Stay for a performance of “Horn in the West,” a long-running seasonal drama that depicts the daily struggles of pioneers like Daniel Boone.
Look out over the undulating landscape from this perch, which sits nearly 6,000 feet in elevation. Leave time to traipse through the adjacent nature museum and cross the high-suspension footbridge.
The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina experience all four seasons, albeit in a more mild fashion than much of the U.S. Summers are warm and wet, with an average high temperature in the high 70s and quick thunderstorms that pass over the mountainous landscape. Fall is a wonderful time to visit to see foliage and enjoy crisp autumnal weather. Winters are drier, with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s.
