Recent North Carolina guest reviews

Our 3rd time staying here. Great location & the house is very comfortable
Merle B. | Jul 2024
Walking out the back door and getting in the boat and going fishing .
James F. | Jul 2024
The house was everything we dreamed of and more. The spaces are amazing, with 23 people in the house it never felt crowded. Customer service was super attentive. We had 2 small issues and someone came to the house within hours to fix them. The pool is incredible, the walk to the beach is short and the canopy and chairs are a great amenity, they got used every day. We loved the house so much we’ve already booked for next year!

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.

You bet, with long-term rentals spanning the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains to the sunny Atlantic beaches, North Carolina offers boundless options for extended stays in our comfortable homes, condos and cottages across the state.
