Vacation rentals

Hi - Family of four looking for vacation rental for summer time. We have two children 10 and 6. Would prefer mountain view with hot tub. my husband and son would like to white water raft. Any suggestions would be helpful. This would be our sons first time and he is 10. Any other suggestions for things to do.

Thank you!

We just stayed at the Pinnacle Inn which is actually at Beech Mountain. 2 Bedroom / 2 Bath condo with great mountain view. The unit does not have a hot tub but there is an indoor pool with sauna and hot tub and game room. There is also a small playground, a tennis court and a small put put golf on site. It is at the top of the mountain so you have to drive to get to other things to do, but the place was clean and fully furnished. Ours even had books, puzzles and games. It also has a fireplace if the evening gets cool enough.

You might look at the Tweetsie Railroad tour for something the kids would like. I haven't tried that one yet but heard it is fun.

You might try Smoketree Lodge. We just got back from there. You can rent a 1 bedroom suite for $75.00 and a 2 bedroom suite for $85.00. Place is dated but very nice.

There are several gem mines in the area. Mystery Hill was fun. Bass Lake is a nice place to fish. Several companies on Highway 105 which are devoted to white water rafting.

I spend the summers there and rent a condo from Mountain Retreats Realty. Diane is great and very helpful. Also check out Archers Inn on Beech Mtn as they also have several rental homes. The Mountain Times classifieds might help as well. Sam at Deraka's(sp) at Sugar Mtn could also help.
