- ABOUT US
Hot Springs has enticed travelers to its healing waters for centuries, with first evidence of its benefits harkening to Native American healing ceremonies. Early records of visitors date back to 1778, and these numbers boomed with the completion of the Buncombe Turnpike along the French Broad River in 1828.
The 100-degree mineral springs are the focal point around which this tiny mountain town developed, but they are not the only amenity that makes the region a hot destination for visitors and new residents (pun intended).
"The Appalachian Trail passes right through the center of Hot Springs; and it is not unheard of for hikers to finish their trek and settle here, which adds to the community’s eclectic residential composition.
That composition has a baseline of 650 inhabitants, but adds thousands of visitors and fair-weather residents throughout the year. Hot Springs is just 45 minutes northwest of Asheville if you’re needing a big(ger)-city fix.
The town’s life force is its outdoor and arts culture. With the French Broad River just minutes from the main street, residents and visitors alike enjoy fishing, swimming and rafting in the natural water park. Every year, Hot Springs hosts multiple festivals around the Appalachian Trail, the French Broad, and to celebrate the talented craftsmanship of the area’s many artisans, musicians, performers, and brewers.
