Recent North Carolina vacation rental reviews

My family has stayed at this house 3-4 times and look forward to visiting again. For 2 Thanksgivings, we have cooked and entertained both my husbands family, as well as mine, all together. There has been plenty of space for all, including our fur babies to enjoy each other. The most amazing features of this house is the huge backyard and pool as well as a great open air hangout area located (with a stereo) underneath the home. We have stayed for 2 weeks at a time and because one bedroom os setup like a tv/game room, my husband can easily set up shop to work remotely (out of the way of the rest of the family)in a space he that our household doesn’t disrupt him. The location is on the soundside, in a local neighborhood, which allows a chance to go for a walk without too much traffic. Taking a short walk for a spectacular sunset is a great way to start each evening and one of of favorite family time! Thanks for sharing your home!

We loved this house! It was perfect for our group, and the teens in the group loved the pool table. We saw deer every day, and we were close to skiing. We highly recommend it!

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
