The Ultimate 'Man-cation' in Waynesville, North Carolina
Sometimes the guys just need to get away with their buds and do manly things. We're talking golfing, fly-fishing, whitewater rafting, brewery hopping and other studly activities. All without an antique store or cute little dress shop in sight. And Andon-Reid Bed & Breakfast, a Smoky Mountain retreat in Waynesville, NC, is catering to those occasional masculine vacation needs with their rugged "Mancation" package.
Featuring the ultimate man cave as a base, Andon-Reid, a new member of Select Registry Distinguished Inns of North America, is a five-room B&B in a meticulously restored turn-of-the century home with guestrooms that come with fireplaces, original hardwood floors, free Wi-fi, and stunning mountain views near Smoky Mountains National Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Pisgah National Forest. And that doesn't even take into account their macho amenities including billiards, tabletop shuffleboard, darts, Wii Sports and a large-screen TV.
After a delicious and hungry-man-sized breakfast, the dudes can go hiking, zip lining, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, golfing, fly-fishing or touring a local microbrewery. Or they can head into the historic town of Waynesville for a meal or go further afield to the mountain metropolitan town of Asheville, just 30 minutes away and home of Brewtopia.
Whether bonding with your closest bros, renewing old ties with college buddies or military brothers, or simply just needing a dose of testosterone, make it a Mancation in the mountains of North Carolina.
