About Fresh Perspective Vacations

Once upon a time, Gretchen and Derek relocated from the prairie of South Dakota to the mountains of Tennessee and never looked back. From hiking to playing in the river, having the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina in their backyard spoiled them forever. 

Next, they discovered the Gulf Coast, specifically the sleepy little southern town of Gulf Shores, and started making family memories there. The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina came next, with hiking trails around Chimney Rock and the Hickory Nut Gorge and living the lake life at Lake Lure. 

Now our family of six can’t decide between the mountains and the beach, so we’re happy to host you in both! Our goal is for every guest to experience total relaxation and to gain a fresh perspective outside of your day-to-day life. There’s something magical about the water and the forest that will do that to you! So step away from the grind, kick back, and create some headspace with a Fresh Perspective Vacation.
