The Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association is hosting a tour of fourteen area inns on Saturday, April 16th and Sunday, April 17th. In addition to visiting these beautiful, historic homes, tour goers will be able to sample scrumptious food from some of the best independently owned local restaurants.
Asheville is the home of many artists: musicians, sculptors, painters, writers, and actors. They've come from all parts of the country and the world, and somehow settled in this plateau in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
I first saw Julyan Davis' paintings in a local magazine, The Laurel, several years ago. Ever since, when visiting galleries in town, I've looked for his work and have been able to spot his paintings from across the room - his talent is that unique and breathtaking.
It doesn't happen often, but this year we had a beautiful snowfall on Christmas Day here in Asheville, North Carolina. Many guests staying at our Bed & Breakfast had heard the forecast, but were skeptical. Luckily they were not disappointed.
Beautiful weather here in Asheville, North Carolina and large candy bars brought out trick or treaters by the hundreds this Halloween.
Our Asheville Bed & Breakfast added a few more scary ghouls and a hand made Styrofoam coffin complete with a skeleton sporting an 80's dress.
Guests, Angela & Michael, helped out a lot, giving us much needed breaks from the throngs.
Now you can fly like a bird and leap like a squirrel through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
Guests at The Lion & the Rose Bed and Breakfast are often here to celebrate a special occasion: a wedding, an anniversary, an engagement, a birthday, or a holiday.
For the past few years we have had a new type of celebrant - babymooners. These are couples looking for a place to relax and re-connect for one last romantic getaway before entering (or re-entering) parenthood.
Asheville, North Carolina has long been an advocate of the farm to table movement which is only slowly catching on now throughout the country. The idea is that the closer the food that you eat is from the farm where it's grown, the better it is for your health - not to mention that it tastes a whole lot better too.
Asheville and The Lion & the Rose Bed & Breakfast are ideal for special occasions. Over the years our guests have come here to celebrate engagements, anniversaries, birthdays, retirements . . . the list is long and varied.
But Stanley & Armella (Stan & Mel) just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary at our Bed & Breakfast. This was a first for us and something quite unusual to see these days.
