Hot Springs Tour

Hot Springs Tour

Turn right out of the driveway onto Highway 209 North one of North Carolina’s scenic by-ways. Continue along this beautiful scenic and curvy mountain road to Hot Springs, home of Western North Carolina’s only natural hot water springs/baths. Be sure to enjoy the roaring creeks and waterfalls and mountain views at elevations above 4,000 feet as you travel along the highway. You will find Hot Springs to be an outdoor enthusiast’s playground with white water rafting on the French Broad River and hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Be sure to sample some of the local food at Spring Creek Tavern or Iron Horse Station. When you are finished, take Hwy 25/70 to Asheville, our only “BIG” city. The world-renowned Biltmore Estate offers tours of the house and the gardens with wine-tasting provided at the winery for an afternoon you will not soon forget. After enjoying a taste of Asheville’s city life, simply reverse your directions to return to Bear Creek Cabins.
