North Carolina Mountains

Last weekend Daniel and I took a couple extra days off and headed to the North Carolina mountains for a mini-vacation. We rented a little cabin on Lake Lure, which is definitely the most beautiful North Carolina lake I’ve ever seen. Our cabin was built for two, welcomed dogs, and had a hot tub on the deck overlooking the lake. You can’t beat that! We managed to squeeze a lot into our short trip. We canoed on Lake Lure, hiked up Frying Pan Mountain on the Blue Ridge Parkway to see the fall leaves from the lookout tower, fished for our dinner, stopped in Bat Cave, NC to stock up on fresh apple cider and apple butter, skinny-dipped relaxed in the hot tub, practiced our ukuleles, and hiked to Catawba Falls. Autumn is definitely the best time of year to visit the mountains!

      It’s a really big lake, so we didn’t see the exact spot they filmed. There was a copy of Dirty Dancing in the cabin though! ;)

    As a native North Carolinian, I have to say there is no better place to be – especially at this time of year. Thank you for the lovely photos. I’m drooling.
