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.
