Fall Foliage At It's Best in Waynesville, North Carolina

Autumn is beginning to arrive in Waynesville, North Carolina. We're starting to see the leaves changing up in the higher elevations.This is one of the busiest times of the year at Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast. We are encompassed by the most beautiful views and colors to be seen. Waynesville is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Parkway, Pisgah National Forest, Great Smoky Mountains which is part of the Blue Ridge Mountain Range, the Balsam Mountains and beautiful windy roads that take you to all the waterfalls. Western North Carolina is in all its glory and everyone wants to be here for it. There is so much to be seen it will make your head spin. Haywood County has 14 mountain peaks that soar to elevations of 6000 feet. During your fall foliage tour go to one of the most notable mountain peaks, Cold Mountain at 6,030 feet, the backdrop for the Charles Frazier best selling novel and movie in 2003. The Balsams have seven types of forests and mountains with peaks that top 6,400 feet. Take a drive and stop at all the overlooks from the road and enjoy the breathtaking views.

If you're an apple lover you're in luck. Our town has wonderful orchards. Barber's Orchard is the most famous and is outstanding. They have an orchard bakery that offers apple cakes, pies, turnove
rs, fresh cider and more, besides over 20 varieties of apples to choose from. You have to get there in the morning or all the baked goods are gone. The line that is formed is definitely worth waiting in. They are open from 9-6 daily. Don't forget about our Apple Festival in downtown Waynesville on October 17 from 10am-5pm. Over 25,000 people are expected to visit with 125 vendors, mountain music plus dancin' in the streets and bushels of apples!

Come visit us in October and November and see why it's the busiest time of the year. You won't want to miss the senses of the season.
