Asheville Bachelorette Party Activities
Only looking for one activity to add to your Asheville bachelorette party? No worries! We have a few suggestions that can help you celebrate your special bride-to-be based on her personality and your other plans.
For the Chill Bride-to-Be
Looking to unwind and step away from the chaos of everyday life? We suggest incorporating Forest Bathing into your itinerary. The full experience lasts approximately 2.5 – 3 hours, making it ideal for a half-day activity with the whole crew.
Enjoy a meditative stroll through the forest, allowing you to take in the aliveness of all that is around you. Forest bathing is the perfect opportunity to awaken your senses and connect with nature and yourself. The experience will culminate with a closing tea ceremony, setting the stage for your celebrations to continue from a tranquil, rejuvenated space.
For the Active Crew
Looking for a little more action? How about some mountaintop yoga?! Enjoy a one-mile hike up to the top of a scenic mountain top, experience an all levels yoga class, and opportunities for lots of pictures before heading down.
For the Classic Bachelorette Party
Thinking of a more classic bachelorette party activity? Look no further than our fabulous Asheville area wineries for a winery tour! Our standard tour includes visits to three Asheville area vineyards. With safe and reliable transportation provided, you can relax and just have fun with the gals.
You’ll enjoy tastings at two of your three stops. Let’s just say the pours at the first couple of locations are generous so we like to leave the third-stop beverage choice up to you!
Not sure you want to dedicate a full day to exploring wine country? No problem! Get in touch with our concierge to schedule a “Sips with a Sommelier” experience at your home or vacation rental and we’ll bring the wine tasting to you!

Full-Day Bachelorette Mini-Retreats in Asheville
If you’re coming to Asheville for a destination bachelorette party, then you should really do Asheville right! Instead of just one activity, let’s plan a whole day catered to your crew. While each group of gals is unique, we have a few suggested itineraries for bachelorette days out in Asheville that are very popular.
Take a look and then get in touch so we can cater this perfectly to you! That means taking into account where your accommodations are, how big your group is, and the logistics of getting around our mountain region.
Detox, Retox (& Maybe Detox Again!)
The perfect combination of relaxation and fun, our Detox/Retox Bachelorette Party includes outdoor adventures + cocktails.
Start off with the best views from Asheville’s mountaintops to bask in the beauty of our Blue Ridge Mountains. A one-mile hike to the vista gets everyone moving before we pause at the summit for a guided yoga session together.
Later in the day, it’s time to swap that mountaintop for a rooftop! Enjoy cocktails on the best rooftop patios in Asheville as you celebrate your bride-to-be.
If you think you might need another detox after that night of revelry, schedule a massage therapist to come straight to your vacation rental!
Rest & Renew
Is your group in need of a serious recharge? We all get bogged down in daily life stresses. Plan your bachelorette party itinerary around rejuvenation, instead of a jam-packed itinerary that’ll leave everyone even more exhausted on the way home.
Give yourselves the gift of slowing down.
We recommend an all-levels yoga class at your vacation rental, followed by a 30-minute massage…also at your vacation rental! No need to traipse around as a big group, no worries about leaving on time or rushing around. Relax, unwind, and refresh.
To finish off your day, we love a group tarot reading to delve deeper and foster even stronger connections within your crew.
Bonus: Opt for grocery delivery to have your fridge and pantry stocked before you even arrive!

When you’re feeling refreshed and recharged, it’s time for a light lunch and a stroll in downtown Asheville. Check out the RAD/Greenway for an artsy vibe or stroll past our famous early-twentieth-century Art Deco architecture. You can explore all the best areas to stay in Asheville to learn more about each neighborhood.
To wrap up a wonderful day, enjoy having a private chef make dinner at your vacation rental. Locally-sourced ingredients come to you so there’s no stress about reservations or transportation. Relax, share some laughs, and celebrate your bride-to-be in style!
