Recent North Carolina vacation rental reviews

Thoroughly enjoyed our week at mountain majesty. Very nice setting for this gorgeous home situated inside a very quiet neighborhood. Enjoyed many sunrises, sunsets, stargazing, and the deer kept our CavaPoo entertained. He now feels he’s a big game hunter and is letting the squirrels at home get away with murder. We had one issue at arrival, and the Vacasa team was immediately on it, getting things resolved to our satisfaction with great communication throughout. I do have a couple of suggestions for the home owners to consider. Adding sliding door screens for the sun room, primary bedroom and great room would to wonders for the ambiance, letting in the fresh air sounds and smells, without the bugs, something to consider. Also note the if you’ll be using the primary bedroom, the doors that lead to the deck do not have shades, so if you have light sensitivities, stop at Lowe’s or Home Depot and get yourself a couple of cheap temporary shades to stick up for your stay.

Off Crew was the perfect place for our two families to spend the week. It was spotless when we arrived and we were so impressed with the small touches that made it feel like home. The back decking and hot tub area felt like our own private oasis, and we used it a lot because the weather was (oddly) not nice. Easy access to the beach and comfortable beds, fun game room. We would book it again!

The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. We enjoyed daily walks with our dog and evenings on the deck. The house is close to downtown Asheville, breweries, hiking, great food and grocery stores. We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation spot. We will be back!

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
