Asheville has always been a tourist town because of its gorgeous mountain surroundings. But, it also has a unique character that you won't find in too many small towns in the South.
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a national treasure that was built by public works programs started during the Great Depression. It's a scenic highway that traverses the crest of the oldest and most beautiful mountain range in the world. Its beauty is unsurpassed in any season.
There are many reasons to be grateful that spring has finally come to the mountains of North Carolina. This year our number one reason is squirrels. That's right - squirrels.
Asheville's winter weather is very unpredictable. Last year we had just a light dusting of snow on a few days - that was it. This winter we had no snow until February, but it sure made up for lost time.
It may be winter here in the Southern Highlands with the occasional snowfall, but the weather still allows for quite a few great hiking days.
We had the biggest Halloween turnout ever this year at The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast in Asheville.
