Less than a mile from the Appalachian Trail, the dog-friendly Jewel Vinsota guesthouse is the perfect get away to explore nature or your artistic leanings. The house is full of original artwork, hand-crafted details, and books on art and architecture. Wander the grounds and find sculpture, ponds, and trails through the woods.
