Fall is Coming Soon to this Asheville Bed and Breakfast

September 9th, 2010 by Stacy Shelley

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.
