Marion NC Rental Properties

Located just 30 minutes East of Asheville, your one stop shop awaits for dining, brews, all the outdoor activities like fishing, hiking, and rafting. Marion even has a gem mine!


Sitting right on historic Main Street in downtown Marion is McDowell Local. Locally sourced and handcrafted family favorites, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Not far from McDowell Local, enjoy all the southern foods at Countryside BBQ.


Curb your thirst at Mica Town Brewing. Honoring the heritage of Appalachian mining, they have carefully crafted brews inspired by the geology and hard working people of Western North Carolina. Pilsners, IPAs, Ciders, and even coffee and slushies, you are sure to find something to satisfy your taste buds!


The catch-out pond at Buck Creek Trout Farm is a wonderful place for family fun and group outings. Don’t worry about packing your bait and poles, Buck Creek has a selection to choose


from. Bring a cooler if you plan to have a fish fry! This is fun fishing for any age or skill level. No fishing license is required. Buck Creek will clean your trout for a small fee, or they have facilities available if you prefer to clean your own. There is a picnic area with a covered pavilion right beside the creek. Truly fun for all ages. Groups of 10 or more should call ahead for reservations.


Hike the Catawba Falls Trail, trekking through a mossy, shady forest valley to a beautiful series of waterfalls on the Catawba River. Rated as relatively moderated by Asheville Trails and about 2.7 miles round trip, its a great trail for you and your pup!


Discover the only accessible cavern in North Carolina, Linville Caverns. View stalactite and stalagmites, along with an underground stream where the fish are blind (it’s so dark, they couldn’t see anyway.) Guided tours are led throughout the year, with weekend-only tours in the winter months.


Tube down Catawba River with Catawba River Outdoors! Located at the upper end of Catawba River, they have a picnic area for lunch and a bathhouse to change into dry clothes after your adventure.


Try your hand at gem mining at Lucky Strike Gold and Gem Mine. High banking, dredging, panning and screening, you are sure to score big! Check out their website for pricing after your book your stay with us!


Can’t wait to see you in the beautiful foothills of North Carolina!
