Asheville is a nationally renowned destination, and Sylva and Waynesville are charming towns full of art galleries, restaurants, outdoor shops and hospitals, all just down the road. Located off a major highway, less than 40 minutes west of Asheville, Balsam Mountain Preserve is easily accessible to cities including Charlotte, Atlanta, Greenville, Knoxville, Nashville, and others.
It’s easy to understand the allure of the Carolina mountains – and today, as we seek distance and privacy from the encroaching modern world, these hills have taken on a new luster.

Indeed, there is a sameness that’s hard to escape.
