The Bed and Bike Inn is located on the outskirts of Concord but it feels like it’s in the middle of nowhere. There are three separate options for accommodations ($110-159 d) on the 11-acre oasis: a hand-built log home with three bedrooms and separate living and dining areas, a three-bedroom contemporary home called The Grove House, and a quaint cabin with a sleeping loft and private whirlpool tub. The grounds are amazing: There are walking trails, a labyrinth, and a fire pit where drumming circles gather on a regular basis. There is also a yurt on-site that’s used for special events but doubles as a massage studio (the hosts, Ellen Whiteside and Tim Beebe, are licensed massage therapists). To add to the outdoor-vacation vibe, the inn also leads moonlight kayaking trips from June to October.

There is a free cooked-to-order breakfast in the mornings and the on-site restaurant, Rocky River Grille, has some Southern favorites like mac-and-cheese and Low Country shrimp and grits on the menu. The biggest draws to the hotel are the on-site spa, Spa Botanica, and Rocky River Golf Club, ranked one of the top 100 courses in North Carolina. You’ll quickly forget it is part of a national chain of hotels after you’ve played 18 holes and indulged in the hot stone massage. The hotel actually lives up to its tagline: Play, indulge, relax All under one roof.
