Asheville Bed and Breakfast Garden

Photo Gallery

Asheville has much to see and do, and our Blue Ridge Mountains bed and breakfast is a part of it.

On a quiet, tree-lined street in the historic Montford District, the house sits on a one-acre lot surrounded by lawns and gardens. Relaxing on the large, traditional Arts and Crafts-style front porch, you can watch neighbors stroll to town and children play, much as they would have 100 years ago. Enjoy the shade of our grape arbor in the back while a gentle mountain breeze moves through the trees and flowers.

Inside, the house is filled with furniture, antiques, and artwork from around the world. Every piece has a story, from the owner’s great-grandmother’s clock which began its life in Raleigh, North Carolina, moved to Connecticut, and thence around the world until returning to rest once again in North Carolina, to the intricate wood carving from the rafters of a Balinese house. Traditional family oil portraits grace the fireplaces while upstairs a large Vietnamese oil painting lights the staircase. But this is not a museum; it is a home with all the comfort and activity of one. In the kitchen, a fire burns in the corner while cookies bake in the oven and a pot simmers on the stove. In the gardens, flowers are picked and bushes are trimmed. Ice-cold lemonade is served from a glass pitcher while a bird sings in the distance. With all of this, it’s hard to leave, but the nearby city of Asheville beckons.

Asheville is a picturesque North Carolina mountain getaway as well as an adventure of its own. In addition to the many festivals and expositions which are planned, the streets are alive with spontaneous outpourings of music and dance. A walk through the downtown area will find much to interest you with its unique galleries and shops. You may want to spend some time perusing the menus posted outside the restaurants in order to make the difficult choice of where to eat. A visit to the Biltmore Estate is essential, and the nearby Biltmore Village offers attractions of its own with its half-timbered buildings and up-market shops.

A short drive away, the mountains rise in front of you, and the views and vistas are unparalleled whether you view them from your car or from one of the many hiking trails available.

However you choose to spend your time, there is an adventure around every corner in Asheville!

Clean, stylish and simple interiors and very friendly staff made this a top notch experience. Food was four star, fresh beautifully prepared and delicious. The bed was heavenly. Location was central to everything. We would stay there again and have already recommended it to our friends.

A Note from Your Host…

The peonies of May are finished in our garden and the daisies of June and July are spreading their color, flanked by roses and nasturtiums. Our tomato plants are lush and already heavy with fruit.  The jalapenos are gifting me with their usual non-stop harvest and this year, at last, I might get a zucchini or two!  It is summer in Western North Carolina with long hot days and nights cooled by the mountain breeze.  The ceiling fans revolve in a lazy circle over the porch swing.  It’s a perfect vantage point to watch the children ride by on their bikes and listen to the birds as they sing in the trees.  This is when “seasonal” cooking really comes into its own.  Each week brings a new pleasure from the early radishes and sweet peas of summer to the red plums of June and the sweet peaches of July and August.  With so much abundance it is hard to decide what to make for our guests so every week brings something new to the table.

We love our town and our mountains and look forward to welcoming you to the Carolina Bed & Breakfast!
