Blue Ridge Property

 

If you’re planning a visit to Franklin, NC, Sunset Ridge makes the perfect choice for overnight accommodations. Not only is this park scenic and luxurious, but there are also a number of fun activities to enjoy only a short drive away.

 

Great Smoky Mountains

 

Although technically a Blue Ridge property, Sunset Ridge is nonetheless very close to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The Smoky Mountain property inside this park contains some amazing waterfalls, and has a number of scenic auto tours as well. You can also enjoy horseback riding, camping, hiking, fishing, bicycling, and photography as well. There are also more than 90 historic structures for you to explorein an area of the park known as Cades Cove, which is located on the former hunting grounds of Cherokee Indians.

 

Appalachian Trail

 

This Blue Ridge property is also located in close proximity to the Appalachian Trail, which extends from Georgia to Maine. It covers more than 2,200 miles of trails, 47 of which are located within Macon County. Franklin itself has been designated as an Appalachian Trail Community, and is an excellent place for hikers to rest and resupply. Whether you plan on hiking the local trails or heading onward toward Smoky Mountain property, you’ll find some of the most scenic points along the trail easily accessible.

 

Gem Mining

 

The town of Franklin is known as the “Gem Capital of the World”, which is why there are so many gem mining opportunities near this Blue Ridge property. A number of local outfitters will allow you to mine for your own gems, and will also permit you to take your findings with you. Most mines are open during the spring, summer and winter, and also have picnic grounds available so you can plan on spending the whole day there if you wish.

Biltmore Palace

 

Located in Asheville, Biltmore Palace is the largest privately-owned house in the United States, containing nearly 179,000 square feet of area and 250 rooms. Built by George Washington Vanderbilt II, it is still owned by one of his descendants yet today. Now a prominent tourist attraction, the home contains a number of displays ranging from vintage clothing to antique furniture. It also contains a bowling alley, 70,000 gallon indoor swimming pool, 65 fireplaces and a library containing 10,000 volumes of printed material.

 

Nantahala National Forest

 

A short drive from our Blue Ridge property lies the Nantahala National Forest, which is the largest national forest in the state of North Carolina. It covers more than 531,000 acres of land, and contains elevations ranging from 1,200 to 5,800 feet. One of the most often visited locations within the forest is the Nantahala Gorge, where scenic railroad tours are often held. The gorge is also an excellent place to go hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing, fishing, camping and horseback riding. There are also three outdoor shooting ranges located within the forest as well.

 

Macon County Quilt Trail

 

Getting out to view the area surrounding this Blue Ridge property will be even more interesting when you drive the Macon County Quilt Trail. Dozens of homeowners in the area place hand made quilt blocks on their barns and houses during an annual event known as the “airing of the quilts.” A project tour guide containing GPS coordinates and the history behind each block is also available.

 

There is never a lack of anything interesting to do near this Blue Ridge property. Whether you’re enjoying a scenic drive or exploring Smoky Mountain property within the national park, there is always something for everyone.
