Recent North Carolina vacation rental reviews

We have visited the OBX since I was a little girl. My mom has Multiple Sclerosis and is now bond to a wheelchair. We search for a house that will accommodate not only the size of our group but also mom. We chose 2 for 1 because of the amazing views, elevator and handicap friendly labels. An elevator and handicap friendly are “have to haves†and the view is an added bonus. It would make it so much easier for her to enjoy her stay having all three of these amenities. The only minor issue we had was getting her into the house. The back door is the only way she was able to enter and there was a three inch lip that she and her motorized wheelchair had to be raised over each time. Once raised, the platform was small and did not allow for the turn very easily. Everything else was fantastic! The shower chair being provided was a major plus! Thank you! We have booked 2 for 1 next year, but plan to make a small ramp and platform extension we can use to help get her into the house easier. If there are adjustments made to the back entrance, we would love to know!! Thank you for taking to time to read our comment. ~ The Laton/Deese Family This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Loved the nostalgic feel and proximity to downtown. Just take notice that this isn’t your couples get away place.

Experience the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina

The Smokies’ signature blue range guards North Carolina’s western edge, making it part of the fabled Appalachian region. A North Carolina vacation rental is the perfect spot for exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which sits on the border shared with Tennessee. One one side of the park, there’s Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and the other hubs for Tennessee Smoky Mountains vacations. On the North Carolina side, you’ll find cabin rentals throughout Bryson City, Cherokee, and Maggie Valley, while an Asheville stay is perfect for those who want the culture and dining of a bigger city.  

Another staple of Appalachia is the legendary Blue Ridge Parkway, an interstate highway that’s famous for its fall colors and breathtaking mountain vignettes. The Parkway’s southwestern end point is found in Cherokee, North Carolina, and it ambles through Asheville on its way north through the Pisgah National Forest and finally up through Virginia. The Parkway is more than just a scenic road, though; it’s the beating heart of Appalachian culture in North Carolina and Virginia, and, if you’re staying at a North Carolina cabin rental, it’s a must.

Relax on North Carolina’s Outer Banks

If you’re looking for a North Carolina beach vacation, one of our Outer Banks rentals is a perfect choice. Experience the beauty of the state’s coast from the comfort of a beach house in Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, or Topsail Island—among many other choices. Your options for fishing, horseback riding, sightseeing, and great coastal dining are pretty much endless at the Outer Banks.

It's near-impossible to go wrong when visiting beautiful North Carolina. Book a locally managed vacation rental to make your stay even better
