This Remote Restaurant In North Carolina Will Take You A Million Miles Away From Everything

With a population of just 563, this small mountain town is tucked quietly beside the French Broad River and Spring Creek in Madison County. Hot Springs gets its name from the mineral hot springs found throughout the area. Called an ‘outdoor paradise,’ the Appalachian Trail runs straight through the small town. While Hot Springs has access to all things adventure, the town is also extremely quaint and one of a kind. B&Bs are dotted on the hillside, restaurants are tucked into corners, and there’s even a cute main street with sweeping mountain views not far away. But, if you find yourself on the Appalachian Trail or even just looking for a weekend of adventure, one restaurant in Hot Springs is simply different from the rest.


Have you dined or stayed here before? Do you want to go now?

If you’re looking to make a whole weekend out of it, there’s plenty more to do in this charming small town, like take a dip in the Hot Springs!
