From farm to bed and breakfast table, Asheville’s Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast works with local farmers to bring you delicious and healthy local food. Strawberries have come in early at Full Sun Farm and we are serving them up at breakfast. These ripe, red, juicy fruits come from our friends at the farm which is located in Sandy Mush (about 45 minutes from Asheville).
This small, family farm is run by Alex Brown and Vanessa Campbell. They reside on the farm in an old farm house with their two young daughters, Ada and Belle. Their mission at the farm is to nurture their family and community by growing beautiful, healthy produce through good land stewardship. They apply organic farming methods to grow vegetables, berries, and cut flowers on their 17 acre farm. They also have three greenhouses where they start their transplants from seed and grow tomatoes, melons, and cucumbers. All of their produce is sold locally and Alex and Vanessa are well known at the farmer’s markets.
When visiting this Asheville NC Inn this summer you will get the chance to taste their delicious blueberries in our Blueberry Waffles, their vegetables in out Farmers Market Frittata and the lovely summer squash in our zuchini bread. As Julia used to say: “Bon Appetit!”

The weekend of May 27th there is not one but two fabulous festivals. Whether you’re a hardcore athlete or a newbie trying an event for the first time, the annual Mountain Sports Festival in Asheville offers something for you. From intense trail running to laid-back disc golf, from adventure racing to the Iron Kids events, from high speed track racing to whitewater kayak clinics… there is something here to entertain and challenge you!
Or you can just hang out, enjoy music and food while watching the competitions. Visit with vendors and test out products, and get lots of great information for enjoying the outdoors.
The Mountain Sports Festival is a weekend event that celebrates community, athletics and local business, while showcasing the terrain, environment and unique culture of Asheville and the surrounding mountains. The Mountain Sports Festival is organized by a group of community oriented volunteers dedicated to presenting a well balanced series of events that encourages participation on all levels. It features professional and amateur level competitions in paddling, adventure racing, running, cycling, climbing, skateboarding and many other activities.
The heart of the festival located at Carrier Park on Amboy Rd. along the French Broad River in West Asheville features entertainment, food, souvenirs, clinics and demonstrations
Also May 28th you can take a drive to Brevard for the The White Squirrel Festival. It’s two days of nutty, family fun over the Memorial Day Weekend. The music is the major showcase, giving prominence to national and even international performers who are connected to Transylvania County. This year BonePony and Jupiter Coyote headline the Saturday and Sunday concerts, along with 16 other FREE concerts! It’s no wonder that last year the White Squirrel Festival was recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of the TOP 20 May festivals in the entire region.
Pinecrest Inn Bed & Breakfast is a hop, skip and a jump from all the festival action this summer. Stay at our Asheville Inn and enjoy sumptuous breakfast and luxurious suites at affordable room rates. Call 888-811-3053 or visit www.pinecrestbb.com for details and reservations.

Fodor’s travel guide named Asheville as one of their “21 Places We’re Going in 2011”. Fodors says this about Asheville: “Get a taste of Asheville while it still feels local and before it goes global. On the edge of the alluring Smoky Mountains, the food and drink scene of the recently dubbed ‘Beer City USA’ is the perfect complement to the scenery. You’ll find over 30 galleries and 20 music venues devoted to everything from folk pieces to modern mash-ups.” And an impressive list it is, including destinations such as Amalfi Coast, Hawaii, Copenhagen, Holon Design Museum, Nevis, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Willamette Valley, Atacama Desert, Stockholm, Stratford-Upon-Avon,Nicaragua, Toronto, Yucatan, New York City, Marrakesh, Finland, Mozambique, Beirut,and Curacao. Fodor’s is the world’s largest publisher of English language travel and tourism information, having published more than 440 guides (in 14 series) on over 300 destinations.

It’s winter in Asheville which means it’s low or should I say “slow” season. We should be resting and gearing up for our busy spring, summer and fall….right. Not a chance this year. We have been very busy with winter cleaning, painting and refinishing our floors. The Wible and Thomas Wolfe suites at our Inn have a fresh coat of paint and very shiny floors. The entrance way, stairs and upstairs hall have also been spruced up with fresh paint. Our Asheville NC Bed and Breakfast is ready to welcome in Spring.
On that note, last Spring we spent a great deal of time in our expansive and lovely yard planting a new perenial garden around the stone patio. We also planted shrubs, trees and flowers and are excited about seeing all of it come into bloom very soon. In fact the warm weather last weekend sprang up the Crocus giving us a glimps of Spring.
