The swathe of country surrounding Morganton, North Carolina, is referred to as “Nature’s Playground” for a reason. The scenic city (the county seat of Burke County) sits on the Catawba River in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Entry to the picturesque Blue Ridge Parkway is close at hand, while Asheville and Charlotte are just over an hour’s drive from the city. At the center of it all is this Blue Ridge Mountains Bed and Breakfast for sale, rated #1 of 347 hotels in the North Carolina Mountains according to TripAdvisor.
The North Carolina mountains offer unsurpassed opportunities to experience the outdoors: trails for hiking, camping, cycling and horseback riding; an ideal location just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, NC’s largest state park (South Mountain State Park), Lake James State Park (as seen in the movie The Last of the Mohicans), Linville Gorge (the “Grand Canyon of the East”), Grandfather Mountain, Table Rock, Pisgah National Forest, Catawba River, Linville River, and Wilson Creek.
Morganton, North Carolina, is a thriving small city located at the heart of Burke County. Beyond opportunities for recreation, the city has a thriving arts community, a variety of restaurants with a farm-to-table focus, and countless micro-breweries, boutique wineries and distilleries that are gaining regional and national recognition. (On a recent trip to Morganton, we most enjoyed our visit to Fonta Flora’s tasting room and an extended dinner at Root & Vine.) Proximity to three excellent State universities – UNC Asheville, UNC Charlotte, and Appalachian State University – is another positive.
The Inn at Glen Alpine is currently recognized by TripAdvisor as the #1 hotel in the North Carolina Mountains. This is a serious achievement given the number of quality hospitality properties in the Asheville area alone. The Inn was meticulously renovated by current owners with a focus on preserving the quality and details of the original building (these include 12’ ceilings, original hardwood floors and fireplaces, and a commanding wrap around porch that plays host to countless events and business meetings). The Inn has developed a strong event business over the last few years and is a premier event site in Burke County.
Morganton is one of the great B&B locations, with Asheville and Black Mountain to the West,The Blue Ridge Parkway, and Boone & Blowing Rock to the North, Rutherfordton and Charlotte to the South and Valdese and Hickory to the East. This Blue Ridge Mountain Bed and Breakfast for sale offers the best of the North Carolina mountains (only 45 miles from Asheville!), without the prohibitive price tag and with substantial room for growth.
