A Guide To Fairview, NC (Buncombe County): Activities, Restaurants, Bars, And Shops

Immediately to the east of Asheville, nestled in the mountains and near lots of hiking hot spots, the town of Fairview offers small-town charm with easy access to city amenities. You’ll find that just driving a few minutes from the bustle of Asheville Mall and Tunnel Road, things quiet down and you get to really focus on the beautiful hilly views and feel the calm and coziness of this area. 

Staying in Fairview is a great way to be right next to great hiking, including Strawberry Gap Trailhead and Bearwallow Mountain Trail. Keep heading southeast, and you’ll hit the charming spots Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, or head up north a bit for an afternoon in Black Mountain and Swannanoa. 

I’ll level with you: Fairview isn’t an enormous or dense neighborhood or town (in fact, its name is more for the community, and many of the nearby addresses will be part of Asheville or other towns like Fletcher). Therein, however, lies much of the charm. Fairview is a community, a place tied together by a love of the mountains, a slower pace of life than the hustle-filled city, and traditions that have been part of this area for centuries. 

Staying here is a lovely privilege, if you get the chance, and if you’re up for it, you can get a little more of a glimpse into mountain living than you’d get from the top floors of a downtown Asheville hotel – these are two wonderful options for travel experiences, for sure, but the Fairview view might be just as sweet!

Your options are varied and excellent for creating a fun weekend getaway or enjoying a leisurely week with family and friends. Here are some of our favorite options in this area of Western NC.
