Rutherfordton Bed and Breakfasts
Rutherfordton is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina. A great way to learn about the town is to stay at a Rutherfordton inn or B&B. Your hosts would be happy to tell you that on the first Saturday of May, Rutherfordton hosts the Mayfest Street Festival. Mayfest offers parades, the arts, live entertainment, and activities for children. Also on the first Saturday in October, visitors can join in the festivities of the Hilltop Fall Festival. The Hilltop Fall Festival has much of the fun and activities of Mayfest, but includes a 5K run as well. Don't feel like running? During the same weekend, visitors can also participate in the Tour de Pumpkin which hosts 100k and 50k cycling. If you are not there during one of the festivals, your Rutherfordton bed and breakfast host would tell you that one of the area's largest attractions is the Kidsenses InterACTIVE Children's Museum. It is a museum that allows children to learn through hand-on experience. The museum hosts hands-on science experiments and interactive science exhibits. Children can learn about hurricanes, dentistry, even the art of blowing bubbles. For visitors looking for riches, Thermal City Gold Mine and Broad River Gems and Mining are a great place to start. At these two places, visitors can mine for recreational gold or even pan for gems. For meals, if you are looking for great German cuisine, the best place to go is Gaestehaus Salzburg Restaurant. This restaurant began as an Austrian pastry and coffee house, but now boasts a full menu of German cuisine. Visitors can still sample Austrian pastries here as well, while listening to Austrian music. Visitors looking for a romantic evening should take advantage of one of the Lake Lure Dinner Cruises. These cruises allow a beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the beautiful architecture of the homes of Rutherfordton. You may even be lucky enough to see one of the locations used to film "Dirty Dancing". The cruise offers complimentary wine or beer, or another drink of your choice, and a four course menu.
