This time of year, Greybeard Rentals gets quite a few inquiries about the best time to enjoy the autumn foliage. While we always are appreciative of direct contact, we thought it might be helpful to provide that information on a Fall in the Mountains webpage. As the conditions vary year-to-year, this page will enable our guests to monitor when peak viewing is anticipated, and it has some helpful additional links off of that page that can provide even more detailed info.
So now that you’ve decided when you’d like to head up here, why not take a moment and plan a tentative itinerary. A good place to start would be Greybeard’s Events webpage that is updated regularly and includes such upcoming events as the 5th annual Ciderfest, Asheville's Oktoberfest, and LEAF Festival. These special events capture the seasonal essence of the area and cultivate an appreciation of autumn in western NC.
In addition, western NC has ongoing events and activities that make the area very unique. For example, take a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway to capture the immense beauty of the fall foliage from overlook vistas. For a more bird’s-eye view, why not zip line through the foliage. That’s one way to get a very different look at autumn colors, and it’s something that the whole family can get a rush from. The French Broad Rafting and Ziplines offers a chance for an unmatched perspective of the beauty of the Asheville area, and more information is available from Greybeard's Guest Services page. For details on these activities plus many more, visit Greybeard Rentals Things to Do webpage.
And while you’re here, consider staying in one of Greybeard Rentals cabins in Asheville and its environs. You can choose from dog-friendly mountain log cabins to one of our property specials homes to a mountain rental that matches any of your amenities including hot tubs and fireplaces. Take some time to search through the Greybeard Rentals website or contact Greybeard Rentals directly for personalized assistance in making your home rental home choice. We’re here and ready to make your autumn in Asheville as spectacular as the fall foliage promises to be.
