Default City of Hendersonville - Population around 12,000.

Twenty-five miles south of Asheville on I-26.

Default Cullowhee/Sylva

Hi. We have land in Cullowhee and spend time in the area every year. The road from Cullowhee and/or Sylva to Asheville is all four lane, but your commuting time of approximately 45 minutes probably wouldn't fit. The distance would be about 50 miles, depending on where you were in the Sylva/Cullowhee area and where you were going in Asheville.

Default where did you wind up?

I'm thinking of relocating. Started new career as a psychotherapist, will have college age kids when I move. Love the mountains, outdoors, small quaint towns but not too far from an airport (90 mins). So I'd love to know where you wound up and how it's going!

A major airport? or a regional airport. Charlotte is the closest major airport 2 hrs. from Asheville.

Asheville has a regional airport, within a 15 min. drive to downtown Asheville.

Only using Asheville as a central spot because it is the "largest" city to draw a radius from.

There are scads of small quaint towns depending on your activities, lifestyle, views or no views, subdivisions or acreage. If you look through many of the threads on this Western NC forum you will find enough information to make you dizzy.

We will need more of what you are looking for and a frame of reference of where you would be moving from, and when you plan on moving.

For starters, Hendersonville, Mills River, Brevard, Etowah, Fletcher, Arden, Black Mountain, Swannanoa, Weaverville, Waynesville. In other words, for your profession mainly, you will want to be within an easy 25 mile radius outside of Asheville.

(Not sure if you noticed, but this thread is almost 5 yrs. old. 2009, so you may not hear from the former posters.)

I must reply to the post referring to Bryson City as being close to Asheville. It is close to 50 miles away. However, in that same direction...Waynesville is a beautiful town located only around 30 miles from Asheville.

Since "vibrant downtown" was on your list, I would have to say Black Mountain or Waynesville. In my personal opinion, "vibrant" doesn't really apply to most small towns around Asheville, even though they might be picturesque and good places to live. Next on the list would be Marshall.

1) Blowing Rock
2) Boone
3) Banner Elk
4) Asheville
5) Black Mountain
6) Brevard
7) Waynesville
I'm not a fan of Bryson City for several reasons including too touristy and not high enough elevation.
