  • Rented a canoe here with my wife over the summer. Great customer service, friendly staff and well cared for equipment. The route wasn't my favorite I've done, but still pretty nice!
  • Took my neices and nephew to do some gem mining. This place was one of the less expensive places but had great reviews. We took the plunge and purchased the white buckets and got tons of gems ğŸ’Ž will be back, great spot to hang out on the river and do some kayaking.

Where to stay in Asheville

To take advantage of the best Asheville has to offer without breaking the bank, stay at one of the city's small motels, many of which offer free breakfast buffets and plenty of secure parking. Asheville's historical district contains most of the city's bed and breakfasts, allowing you to stay within a short walk of downtown shopping, dining, and entertainment. The area also boasts numerous budget-friendly hostels, offering inexpensive private rooms for backpackers. For something completely different, rent an eco-friendly cabin in a wooded area just a short drive from the city.
