Coming up to the NC High Country for Thanksgiving Weekend is a true family tradition! Your family can choose and cut a Christmas tree at a local farm, take a hay ride, view a holiday light display and still have Thanksgiving dinner. You have a variety of options for Thanksgiving dinner.  If you would like to dine out, choose from buffet style to a set menu, but all include a cozy atmosphere in the mountains and friendly staff. If you would prefer to have dinner in your cabin rental, there are a few places that can provide you with a freshly cooked turkey and sides.  See our suggestions below.
