Perched between the Doe River and the steep slopes of the Appalachians, Roan Mountain Bed and Breakfast is an idyllic getaway.
Managed by Ann Campbell, Robert Morgan and their families, the bed and breakfast sits on 120 acres in Roan Mountain near the North Carolina High Country. It has been in the Morgan family for more than a century and dates back to World War II.
Guests can hike 10 miles of the Appalachian Trail between Carver’s Gap and Hump Mountain or enjoy antique shops and restaurants in nearby Elizabethton, zip lining at Seven Devils, and boat rentals at Watauga Lake.
June 18-19 hosts the 65th-annual Rhododendron Festival. Held during the peak of rhododendron bloom, the festival features handmade crafts, food and music.
