Where to Stay

We are 3 adults (including Grandma) and four kids (ages 9-14). We would like to rent a cabin, but can't figure out which area will be closest to do the things we want to do. We want to fish (hope to find a rental with fishing onsite), horseback ride, river trip and ziplining/treetop adventure. Which town/area should we be looking?

Elisabeth, depending on your fishing experience and preferences, the French Broad River, which runs through Asheville, offers some excellent smallmouth bass fishing but not from a cabin on the bank..you'll have to use a guide. But Asheville would also be closest to the best zipline at Navitat and also white water rafting on the French Broad as well as horseback riding at Sandy Springs, all in the same area north of Asheville. You may be able to find a cabin right on Fontana Lake or Lake Nantahala , about 70 miles west of Asheville, and there is excellent rafting and zipline operators in that area ( NOC in the Nantahala Gorge) and fish from the cabin dock, but that's not likely to be productive fishing. If you rent a cabin on a lake, you should consider also renting a pontoon boat. .
