Hendersonville: A Great Place to Stay in the NC Mountains. When it comes to vacations, half the fun is picking the right place to stay. With that in mind, travelers to the cool mountains of Hendersonville, North Carolina, have quite a selection.
This vibrant, artsy Blue Ridge town offers everything from rustic resorts to luxury cabins, from national-brand hotels to mom-and-pop motels, from charming inns to cozy bed-and-breakfasts. Last year alone the town added four franchise hotels bringing more than 500 new rooms.
“There’s something for everyone,” says Beth Carden, Henderson County tourism director. “I think the cabins and bed-and-breakfast inns particularly provide that mountain vacation experience that people desire.”
“We also offer a room availability program on our website,” Carden adds. “It puts visitors in touch with accommodations that have availability during their desired travel time.”
Hendersonville and its surrounding towns have been able to assemble such an inventory of lodging options because the region has done hospitality right for decades. Since the mid-1900s, the area has drawn visitors with such iconic attractions as the Carl Sandburg Home, Flat Rock Playhouse, DuPont State Recreational Forest, Biltmore Estate and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Even Hendersonville’s Main Street is an attraction with its curvilinear design, flowering brick planters and landscaped sidewalks dotted with park bench seating areas. The downtown is home to an eclectic blend of shops, boutiques, museums and children’s attractions, along with 25 independent restaurants and a nice mix of pubs and tasting rooms.
The travel professionals in Hendersonville realize that many visitors consider the excitement of staying in new surroundings to be a big part of their vacation adventure. With that in mind, they are constantly adding new amenities and features.
