Blue Ridge Mountain Majesty
There is nothing like the sight of expansive mountain views as far as the eye can see. The Blue Ridge Mountains surround Asheville and offer lofty peaks and deep valleys for your viewing pleasure. Panoramic mountain scenery can be found all over the Western North Carolina area. Some of our favorite places to take in the views are from the Biltmore Estate, the Omni Grove Park Inn, Chimney Rock State Park, and our personal favoriteyour own cozy mountain cabin tucked up in the grandeur of the Blue Ridge itself.
