10 Overnight Places To Stay In North Carolina Without Breaking The Bank
Summer has me dreaming of one thing – when, where, and how I’m going to spend (almost) all of my weekends traveling around beautiful North Carolina. But if you’re like me, you can’t continue trip after trip, resort after resort, even Air BnB after Air BnB without feeling a major financial strain from your adventures. Luckily, there are plenty of low-cost options for booking a one of a kind vacation in North Carolina. Call some friends, call your sweetie, or just go solo…these are all great places to stay that won’t break your budget.
1. Hidden Haven
This quaint Outer Banks home in Nags Head comes with water views and beachy charm. With 4 bedrooms, a wide living room and double decks it's the perfect place to book for a weekend away with friends. At just $115 a night, it's definitely a steal!
2. Wald Haus
This gorgeous mountain cabin is located right along an active trout stream. Perfect for fishing or just hiking along the 5 rolling acres. It sleeps up to 6 with 3 bedrooms. At only $100/night it's perfect for a friend weekend or just something fun and different with the family.
3. Heaven's Doorstep
At only $135 a night, this mountain bungalow puts you in prime territory for a long mountain weekend. You're just 10 minutes from downtown Hendersonville, 25 minutes from Asheville, and 20 minutes from the Pisgah National Forest. That is, if you ever want to leave this little haven. You can't beat THAT deck or those views.
4. A true steal!
This gorgeous, recently remodeled beach house is only $99 a night! With three bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and plenty of lounging space - this is a total Outer Banks steal. Get some friends together and spend a thrifty week on Nags Head.
5. Modern mountain views
This chic and gorgeous entire home/apartment is listed on Air BnB for a mere $90/night. It's perfect for taking a trip to Asheville to enjoy BOTH the nature and the lively downtown.
6. Oceanfront Cabana
This bright and cozy oceanfront cabana is PERFECT for a weekend away for two. It might be small - but who cares when you're steps away from the ocean? It's perfect for a place to snuggle up to your S.O at night and enjoy the beauty of Cape Hatteras by day.
7. Hanna House Bed and Breakfast
The beautiful Hanna House fits in just perfectly with the quaint and historic town of New Bern. At just $99/night, you can sleep soundly while saving money for day trip explorations. Bonus - you're treated to a gourmet breakfast!
8. 1906 Pine Crest Inn
This gorgeous Inn located in Tryon had enough southern hospitality to charm F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. Today, you can book your literary stay starting at a mere $120/night. With elegant rooms, romantic cottages, 10 acres and an exquisite location, splitting this two ways offers an affordable option for a weekend away.
9. Beach Jem
While $695 a week sounds (initially) daunting, the Beach Jem sleeps up to 11. Split that 11 ways and you're looking at a beach vacation for a mere $63 a person. With 5 bedrooms, this is perfect for a couples/friends getaway, a family beach trip, or even a reunion vacation. Amenities include a pool and tennis court along with a 6 person hot tub. You're also not far from the wild and rugged beauty that is Corolla Beach.
10. The Sunset Inn
If you don't want to go through the trouble of maintaining a rental house or even booking an Air BnB, a great, low cost alternative for a beach vacation is the Sunset Inn. This quaint and cozy hotel starts at $109 a night. It's the perfect place to lay your head after a spontaneous beach trip...while still enjoying your room and surroundings.
