Bald Eagles, Crystal Clear Lakes, Downtown Convenience and Luxury - Oh My!

Why choose the country over the city or vice versa when you can have both?? That's what we wanna know. 

Steve and Lynne (owners of Asheville Urban Nests) are teaming up with Michelle and Shannon of Fontana Lake and Park View Cabins in nearby Bryson City to offer a country/city peak experience. In one week in the North Carolina mountains you can soak up the awesome (I use this word literally here) views of their made by hand cabins that overlook beautiful, unspoiled Fontana lake.  You can go for a hike, relax by the fire, watch the wildlife (Michelle said she was staring at a bald eagle when we talked about this idea on the phone today), or cycle the popular mountain biking trails at Tsali.  For the second half of your week you'll stay in the heart of downtown Asheville in one of our "nests" where you can luxuriate in comfortable intown living while walking to Asheville's best restaurants, music venues and shops. Sounds pretty great, doesn't it? But wait there's more - for our guests who book the country/city experience, we will offer a 10% discount off our regular nightly rates (rates vary so you'll need to get a quote). For more information, email Lynne at lynne@ashevilleurbannest.com
