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!

A Note from Your Host…

The rain is slowing down and the sun could be out as early as Monday.  This is a GREAT time to come to Asheville.  Cancellations have opened up some of our nicest rooms, including the Cottage, from October 4th through the 6th.  Give us a call at 828-254-3608

I’m calling it!  Fall has officially started.  The early changing Redbud trees are giving way to yellows and oranges as other trees are racing to catch up.  Predictions are for a spectacular color season this year, starting earlier and lasting longer than usual. Our October is almost fully booked although we do have a few single nights left.  However it’s not too late for early November which can be as nice as October but with fewer crowds.

Looking forward, this year we are again offering a Biltmore Christmas Special.  The Biltmore is truly beautiful when decorated for the holidays and the Candlelight Evening often includes music and other forms of seasonal entertainment. The offer runs November 15, 2015-January 2, 2016 . You can see details on our Specials Page.
