Century-Old Bed and Breakfast with Views of Mountains

The Yellow House Bed & Breakfast sits on a hilltop overlooking the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains. Built as a private summer home in the 1880s, the building became a bed and breakfast about a hundred years later. The focus here is on relaxation and hospitality. A complimentary hors d’oeuvres hour takes place each evening and coffee, tea, soft drinks, and snacks are offered throughout the day. You can have your breakfast served in your room, in the dining room, or on the veranda. Stroll along walking paths through the 5-acre property and you’ll find ponds, a stream, and a waterfall.

Each guest room and suite has a gas-log fireplace and a refrigerator as well as herbal bath salts, thick towels, and piped-in music you can turn off at any time. The St. Paul de Vence suite resembles a cottage in the southern French Alps, with a sun-baked tile floor, a two-sided fireplace, and a jetted tub. A private terrace overlooks the peaceful lily pond, where you can listen to frogs croon Barry White songs every night.

Waynesville, North Carolina: Gateway to Great Smoky Mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway

Located 30 miles west of Asheville, Waynesville is nestled between the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains. The 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway, one of the country’s most popular scenic drives, meanders through mountain valleys and loops around Waynesville en route to Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park. The picturesque thoroughfare branches out to more than 100 hiking trails, ranging from short footpaths to the Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine.

Anyone visiting Waynesville should spend a least a day exploring Great Smoky Mountains National Park, America’s most popular national park. The park covers cascading waterfalls, more than 1,500 types of wildflowers, and dozens of historical mills and barns in the southern Appalachians. Naturally, the area is a haven for outdoorsy activities, whether it’s kayaking, whitewater rafting, hiking, trout fishing, or panning for gems. While out, keep an eye out for elk, black bear cubs, eastern box turtles, and white-tailed deer.

Waynesville itself is a charming, old-fashioned town, with a Main Street lined with pretty trees and brick sidewalks. There are also many quaint storefronts, including a general store, a candy store, and numerous antique shops housed in old buildings. Every year, the downtown area is the setting for several festivals, such as Folkmoot USA, an international folk-dance and music extravaganza.
