- A Luxury Mountain Get Away, Minutes to Boone & the Blue Ridge Parkway-

On Elk Creek in Deep Gap, North Carolina

The historic and beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway is just a short 7 miles from Moonshine Bend.  

The New River? An odd name for one of the oldest rivers in the world. Experience nature while paddling along this incredible waterway.

Moonshine Bend is on the bank of one of North Carolina's most pristine trout streams, Elk Creek.

Family Fun at one of the state's oldest theme parks, Tweetsie.  There must be something good here, as it's been around for 50 years!  Tweetsie Railroad is proud to operate two vintage steam locomotives: No. 12 "Tweetsie" and No. 190 the "Yukon Queen.

HAPPY APPY! Appalachian State University – inspired and nurtured by the magnificent mountain chain and vast ecosystem of biodiversity surrounding it – sustainability and community are synonymous; living, intellect, and social conscience are seamless. 


Giddy Up!  Enjoy the amazing beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains from Horseback Riding NC!  Approximately 15 minutes from Moonshine Bend.
