Exceptional Senior Living Is Grown Right Here in the Mountains

Area-Attractions-Terrabella-HendersonvilleSpellbinding mountain scenery and our trademark Southern hospitality make Hendersonville a great place to visit and an even better place to live and call home! Here, outdoor adventures await in every direction, but so too do a variety of events and attractions to satisfy most everyone. In total, our city and region are loaded with places to see and explore, and from TerraBella’s central location, so much of it is just a short trip away.  

Historic downtown Hendersonville lies at the center of our town’s social scene. There, a variety of shops and restaurants, art galleries, seasonal events and festivals, antique and car shows and much more await throughout the year. It’s also home to Aquarium & Shark Lab by Team ECCO, which features 20+ displays and exhibits including stingrays, sharks and many more aquatic species.  

Our vibrant art scene traverses the entire county, with contemporary artwork, hand-blown glass, and pottery and crafts from local and national artists on display. Gallery at Flat Rock and Art MoB Studios are just a couple of favorite local options. Also, each July, during Blue Ridge Craft Trails Month, distinct trails guide visitors to amazing, artist showcases both in town and into the Blue Ridge countryside.  

Speaking of trails…the Cheers! Trail is the only one of its kind in North Carolina, and it’s located right here, in and around Hendersonville. No less than 23 tasting experiences await, everything from local wineries and craft beers (including nationally renowned Sierra Nevada) to hard cideries and even a meadery are included along this boozy journey.

History lives in the modern era in the nearby Historic Village of Flat Rock, where the entire district is included in the National Register of Historic Places. Performing arts lovers will want to check out Flat Rock Playhouse, the State Theatre of North Carolina, which presents a variety of productions year-round showcasing the latest from Broadway, old classics, and everything in between.  

One of the greatest things about life in Hendersonville is that natural beauty can be seen in literally every direction, but outdoorsy types will especially want to explore places like DuPont State Recreational Forest, whose waterfalls, trails and rugged, natural beauty provided the setting for many scenes in The Hunger Games movie. We’d also recommend Jump Off Rock, a breathtaking scenic overlook that’s at the center of an old Indian tale that lives on to this day. 

Indeed, for the familiar comforts of small-town living, but with big-time possibilities for fun and recreation, there’s nothing quite like Hendersonville. That’s yet another reason why TerraBella provides a perfect setting for living well and enjoying life right here in the shadows of the iconic Blue Ridge Mountains.
