A must-see while visiting North Carolina is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC.  The Biltmore is full of timeless elegance as it started in 1895 and still exists, family-owned, today.  Just two and a half hours away – you can fill your day with their on-site winery, shopping, walks in their stunning gardens, and dive into the history of this gorgeous home in the mountains.

Similarly, another luxurious mountain getaway awaits you just an hour and a half from High Point, NC in Southern Virginia.  The Primland Resort, located amidst the Blue Mountains, is a beautiful retreat. They offer golf packages, sport shooting, and an incredible spa. There are various lodging options including private tree houses within the mountains.  We recommend you treat yourself to the spa after walking the streets of High Point Market!
