Last year, my husband and I drove up to enjoy the changing leaves and explore the Hot Springs/Asheville area. We loved the Mountain Magnolia Inn SO MUCH that we went back this year, and brought along two of our friends. The views are unmatched; the food is truly fantastic; and the service is warm, attentive, and memorable. The affection we have for this place just grows deeper and deeper.
Take Hwy 70 during daylight on at least one leg of your trip: the road is windy, and it's a bit a slower, but the views along the French Broad are so worth it.
Hike around Hot Springs up to Lovers' Leap -- we got to experience all four seasons (incl a bit of hail!) in the span of a 3-hour hike. Pete from the MMI very helpfully drew us a map that helped us make the most of the journey.
Love this place so very much.
