Top 10 Fun Filled Fall activities in Waynesville NC!

There is no doubt that Fall is in full swing here in the mountains of Western NC!  And despite a little warm front, it still feels like Fall here in Waynseville.  At every turn there are pumpkins and cornstalks and the town is buzzing with activity.  We also have been busy decorating for the season here at Oak Hill on Love Lane Bed and Breakfast and it’s plenty cool in the evening to sit around the fire pit and enjoy the mountain air!  We still have some availability in October and November so give us a call, pack up the car and head to the mountains for an Autumn getaway! To make an online reservation click here. Here are my top ten things to do this Fall (well I guess it’s eleven…who’s counting!)
