Fall Foliage in the Smoky Mountains: Boats, Kayaks, Fishing, Train rides, etc.
Fall colors are spectacular in the smoky mountains and Oct 14-20 is predicted to be the peak this year. It's 7 days and 6 nights on a river feeding into Lake Nantahala, NC. One place for 3 nights and 4 days is a luxury Yurt on the creek with a Jacuzzi (Oct 14, 15 and 16) and the other place is also on the side of the lake and it has two kayaks and hiking trails (17, 18 & 19). Check out Sat Oct 20. Things to do: Can rent boats on the lake, kayaks, tubes, white water raft down the river, go fishing or on a train ride through the marvelous colored tree wilderness out of nearby Bryson city. Sencic train rides and white water rafting. Asheville, NC with the Biltmore estate is about an hour away and Gatlinburg and Dollywodd 2 hrs away or along the way there or back. Here is the railroad site for tickets: There are a lot of things to do besides river or lake activities. Just driving around looking at the beautiful lakes and rivers and going on hikes is great! You can drive or fly and take the shuttle and go to the place directly without meeting in Bryson, NC if you choose. Otherwise, we can meet about 10 miles from the place in the Nantahala Brewery in Bryson City, NC where the Smoky Mountain Railroad is located. Accommodates 4 people but I have limited it to 3 people (unless a couple goes): one bedroom has a king bed for one or two people and the other has two twin beds. It's first come, first served; so if you are first, you get the king bed in private room and if a couple signs up they get the king bed. Twin beds are also in a private room. There is WiFi, Jacuzzi, decks, fire ring, grill, fully equipped kitchen with dish washer (also washer/dryer). The other house has two kayaks and all other accommodations (but no Jacuzzi in second house). If you aren't comfortable paying online, you can give me a check or mail it to me, just ask me for my address. I can send you pictures of the places. No smoking inside the places. All aboard, mates!
