Fall leaf colors will be gorgeous

Each Wednesday, those interested in the status of fall color in Asheville and the surrounding Western North Carolina mountains can turn to VisitNC's "Fall Color Guy" - Dr. Howard S. Neufeld, a professor of plant physiology at Appalachian State University in Boone.

The Fall Foliage Report states that, as of October 1, "Cool crisp nights are setting the stage for bright color across the state. A hint of color is present in the highest elevations; lower elevations are still patiently waiting."

The current Asheville area, which is where our Carolina Mornings properties are located, has the following report:

While the colors in this area are still subtle, there is plenty of beauty to be found. County Road, in the Lake Junaluska area, is a quick drive full of twists and turns that is always beautiful and is currently showcasing a large maple tree showing tinges of yellow that is simply beautiful. There are also a few reds popping up along this stretch.

Nights continue to be slightly cool and the days are moderate in temperature.

Sounds like good news for all of our guests planning to come in the next few weeks. If you like the idea of being surrounded by beautiful fall colors, it isn't too late to book with us - we have plenty of Carolina Mornings properties still available and now just a 2 night minimum stay!
