The French Broad River offers a wide variety of activities, with fishing, kayaking, canoeing, floating and tubing being a few of the most popular. Glampers can fish the French Broad, cook the catch over on the open fire pit grill, experience an outdoor rain-fed shower, and watch the fireflies light up the mountainside. They can also catch some rays on the private, riverfront beach or just relax in the porch hammock. Spend evenings by the campfire toasting s'mores and listening to the wildlife serenade. Guests can also save some time for an interesting delve into history with a day trip to visit the Biltmore Estate, Grove Arcade, historic downtown Asheville, and the Vance Birthplace.
Guests can go for a drive on the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and have lunch on top of Mount Pisgah.
