Though there's nothing wrong with being the type to look before you leap, at some point you've got to do more than dip your toe into adventure. Quit pussyfooting around and take the plunge with this week's mountain Escape to The Vance Toe River Lodge, just two hours from Charlotte.

Kick back for two nights, Wednesdays through Sundays, in an Elk Mountain Room ($151); Hillside Yurt ($131); Three-Bedroom Creekside Cabin ($241); or Mountain View Cabin, Elk Mountain Suite, or Bed and Breakfast Room ($181). The quiet retreat is perfect for honeymooning couples, while the variety of accommodations also suits families (children are welcome for an additional fee, contact lodge for details).

In the morning, put your best foot forward with a country breakfast featuring hearty favorites like biscuits and gravy, omelets, bacon, and locally grown produce. Then, get a leg up on the day with a $10 discount per person with Plumtree Canopy Tours. Zip through the Blue Ridge Mountains at tree level during the three-hour zipline tour, including either lunch or Sunday brunch at the lodge (try the Nutty Blue Chick Wrap, named one of North Carolina's top 100 must-try dishes by Our State magazine).

If you prefer to keep your toes on the turf, there's plenty to see and do at this year-round playground, including over four miles of private hiking and biking trails, trout fishing in the fully stocked pond, and two18-hole disc golf courses. Travel 20 minutes to Linville Caverns; pop into nearby Blowing Rock for some shopping; or take in the panoramic views from the Mile High Swinging Bridge on Grandfather Mountain.

Back at the property, slow down for a complimentary wine tasting for two at the on-site winery, Plumtree Valley Vineyards, and take a bottle of your favorite to enjoy with homemade bread, trout, or locally raised organic meats at the lodge's restaurant.

Then, just sit and let the grass grow under your feet.

  • "All the great reviews for The Vance Toe River Lodge can't even begin to do it justice. Everything was perfect, from the cozy cabin to the incredibly delicious meals (best food ever!) and unsurpassed warm hospitality."
