Sylva Hotels: 3 reviews and 3 photos
I stayed at the Preserve for a week in December and it was amazing. The whole family went and we played golf and walked and hiked on the trails- which stretched on and on and on! I had no idea when we decided on this vacation spot, that it was one of a few NC Equestrian mountain communities. Those horses were gorgeous and well-trained. I think that was my favorite part.
We found creeks and waterfalls off the trails and went fishing. It was definitely too cold for swimming.
I'd really like if we all went back in September, but I don't think that will happen.
I'd give this place an 8 or 9.
Address: 81 Preserve Rd
Directions: It's very close to Asheville. . .west, I think. 45 minutes or so.
