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.
Visit us at the Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast, a romantic Asheville Inn and enjoy all that Fodor’s found to be true of Asheville. For special discount offers at our Asheville Inn click here. Or call 888-811-3053 for reservations and information.

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.

Fall is just around the corner and with the burst of cool weather this gorgeous Labor day weekend leaves are already starting to show some color. As the cool Autumn breezes start to to be felt, the most oft-asked question at this Asheville Bed and Breakfast is: “When is the peak color weekend?” It seems like every year the color change gets later and later. Last year the leaves peaked (depending upon location) around Halloween weekend. But, no matter when you plan an autumn visit to this Asheville Inn, you can always take a short drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway to find the best color. In early October you can head north on the Parkway to take in the highest elevations, Mount Mitchell, Craggy Gardens and Grandfather Mountain areas. By mid-October color should be in full swing heading south on the parkway, Mount Pisgah, Black Balsam, Devil’s Courthouse, Waterrock Knob and Graveyard Fields,. It will also be peak color in the Highlands area, with plenty of waterfalls to enjoy, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Around the third and fourth weeks of October the city of Asheville will show it’s brightest colors. Head to Chimney Rock area (elevation of 1,300 feet) the end of the month and beginning of November and take a ride to the top of Chimney Rock or take a boat tour on Lake Lure. As you can see, no matter when you visit this Asheville B & B you will be able to take in the beauty of Fall. This schedule could, of course, change and will vary according to the temperature and rainfall we get between now and then. We are beginning to see the first signs so you may want to go ahead and plan your trip.
