A North Carolina Honeymoon in the Mountains
Tour the Biltmore
See how the wealthiest of the wealthy used to live with a special visit to America’s Largest Private Home. While guests can take the typical self-guided tour of the house, make it even more special by reserving either a Guided Small Group Tour or the Rooftop Tour. For a decadent treat, indulge your sweet tooth with the Red Wine and Chocolate Tasting.
There are many wonderful ways to pamper and unwind after your wedding. Unwind at the thermal baths at Shoji, Asheville’s Japanese Inspired Spa. Enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience with a romantic Creekside Couples Massage at Maggie Valley Wellness. Or just unwind with a bottle of wine on our quiet veranda.
Eat, Drink & Be Merry
Celebrate your honeymoon with a special dinner for two at one of the area’s amazing local restaurants. Enjoy the deconstructed lasagna at Chef’s Table, the flatbread of the day at Frog’s Leap Public House, or the legendary crab cakes at The Sweet Onion. For wine, check out Bosu’s Wine Bar or the Classic Wine Seller, or enjoy a massive pretzel and brew at Boojum’s or Frog Level Brewing.
Hit the Trails & Discover Waterfalls
With hundreds of miles of trails, the region offers something for every hiker. Great Smoky Mountain National Park offers easy access to the famed Appalachian Trail via Newfound Gap. Guests can travel to Max Patch to enjoy the stunning views from this grassy mountaintop. The Mountains-to-Sea Trail offers a chance to enjoy even more stunning views. There are more than 60 waterfalls within driving distance of The Yellow House. Some of the most popular are Looking Glass Falls, Dry Falls, and the Upper and Lower Falls at Graveyard Fields. There are also lesser-known gems like Gina Falls, Mingo Falls, and Soco Falls.
Cruise the Blue Ridge Parkway
The world-famous Blue Ridge Parkway is 469 miles of roadway waiting to be discovered. Driving the Parkway is a great way to get away from it all! Bring along a picnic lunch and meander along the mountaintops on this famous roadway. Visit highlights like Devil’s Courthouse and Waterrock Knob, or enjoy the sunset from one of the many stunning overlooks along the route.
