Round Knob LodgeWith the holiday season approaching, many families start to think about getting together. Whether it’s an annual event or a once-in-a-lifetime gathering, a family reunion can create unforgettable memories, and Asheville makes a great location for such a memorable event.

To get started, take a look at Greybeard Rentals’ reunion planning webpage to get an idea of where to start. It’s important to choose a convenient time as well. If school break is required, then you may need to plan for summer or holiday times. Greybeard has in interesting page on when to vacation in Asheville that may be helpful.

A successful get-together requires some careful planning, beginning with an appropriate budget for everyone. There’s nothing worse than finding out about a fantastic family event, only to determine you’ve been priced out it. If there’s a wide range of economic concerns, then consider a variety of accommodations. Is there a chance to diversify housing types to accommodate everyone? For example, if you’re headed to western NC, maybe look into renting Montreat cabins or one large home for people interested in a more luxurious vacation while getting information about the local campsites available within Montreat for people on a restricted budget.

Does everyone want to stay together, perhaps in a rental lodge such as Round Knob. Does it make more sense to have a cluster of rental homes so each family can have its own home? Greybeard has a listings site of rental homes that allows groups.

Also, you may want to survey everyone about expected activities. Does part of the group golf on one of the Asheville area golf courses? Again, Greybeard some good ideas through its Guest Services that can assist you in planning. Does your group include outdoor adventurists? You’ll want to access some hiking ideas and maybe some whitewater rafting and ziplining as well. Does part of the group just want to walk around and enjoy the varied shops around the Asheville area? A helpful starting point for planning out your family reunion activities is Greybeard Rentals’ Things to Do link.

If you’ve found yourself as the primary planner for an upcoming family reunion, the better organized you are, the more likely you are to enjoy yourself at the event. The upcoming holidays are a great time to poll possible participants to find out interests and budgets. And then, it’s a matter of getting down to the details. If you have questions or you’d like to speak with someone about specific Greybeard properties available for family gatherings, please contact Greybeard Rentals. The western NC mountains, with its varied diversions and attractions, make a fantastic place to form family memories.
