A friend and I are heading down from Ontario, Canada in a month for some, hopefully, warm weather riding for a few days. I'm familiar with Mt Mitchell and we'll be climbing it for sure. Was wondering if the locals or those who have cycled and stayed in the area have tips on the following:
- thinking of staying in one of the following cities/towns (Burnsville, Mars Hill, Weaverville, Asheville)...any other cities to consider?
- we would like a place that has at minimum a kitchenette (stove, fridge, sink)
- something clean, great views would be a bonus
- don't have our full riding legs in us, but planning to do at least 3 days of long rides, at a comfortable pace, with as many stops along the way as necessary...any other route recommendations (links to strava/gps maps are fine)
Would appreciate any other tips too!
