    The location of Alluring View B&B is a true nature lover’s paradise!  Summers are very green with trees as tall as a 10-story building, and many colorful wildflowers adorning the landscape.  Fall foliage is extremely colorful and attracts many visitors. This area is painted with bright reds, burgundies, oranges and yellows.  Winter brings snow and the ability to go skiing, snow-boarding, ice skating and snow-tubing.

    When staying at Alluring View B&B you will not be bored.  There are endless activities, fairs, festivals, music concerts, and outdoor fun to keep you as busy as you want to be.  Of course, you can always decide just to sit back and relax in the log rocking chairs on the front porch.  From the Alluring View property you can watch the sun rise to the east, and set to the west, every day [weather permitting].  It is truly a spectacular and colorful sight.

    The Blue Ridge Mountains are breathtaking, and there are many ways to enjoy mother nature in the High Country of North Carolina.  Below is a list of some of the most popular places with a link to more info when available.
