Zip up to Navitat Canopy Tours Easily from our Asheville, NC Bed and Breakfast

June 14th, 2011 by stacy

Get ready to see the world in a new and different way. Hidden in a secluded mountain cove only 20 minutes north of Asheville and a short drive from our Asheville Bed and Breakfast, the Navitat Canopy Adventures zip line canopy tour.  Navitat Canopy Adventures takes guests on a thrilling and educational adventure high in the trees of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Fast, smooth zip lines stretch high above the forest floor; skillfully crafted platforms nest seamlessly (and securely) in large beautiful native trees; and sky-bridges span forest sections teeming with natural wonder and leading to magical surprises like a grand old blooming Tulip Poplar tree.

Navitat Asheville was recently named “one of the best in the nation” in USA TODAY’s “10 Great Ziplines Across the USA!”  I recently went on an afternoon canopy tour and have to say it was a blast.  There were 8 participants in our group and 2 guides. I thought that I would be scared and nervous….but not all.   The views were spectacular and I got to exercise my inner Tarzan (or Jane in my case).  I entered feeling a bit apprehensive about sailing through the forest, but left with my face hurting from grinning so much.

To schedule your canopy tour, contact Pinecrest Inn at 888-811-3053. For more information visit www.pinecrestbb.com or click here for inn discounts and special offers.

Asheville Community Theatre Presents Rent

January 24th, 2011 by stacy

Hey, this is Asheville.  It’s not necessary to “put on the Ritz” for a night on the town.  No top hat and tails required.

Join the Asheville Community Theatre as it turns 65 this year.  The ACT remains one of the oldest community theaters in the country.  To celebrate their youthful exuberance they’ve put together a season bursting with music, energy, humor, and intrigue.

ACT is proud to present the 1996 Tony Award winning Rent, a hot rock opera that follows a group of bohemians struggling in modern day New York. Based on Puccini’s opera La Boheme, Rent tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.  A truly powerful story.

Music, lyrics and book by Jonathan Larson
February 18-March 6, 2011
Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m.; Sundays at 2:30 p.m.

The folks at Pinecrest B&B can help you plan a fun-filled evening with drinks and hors d’ouvres before the show and a late night meal afterwards at any of the fabulous restaurants in Asheville.

Run the Black Mountain Marathon & Mt. Mitchell Challenge and return to this Asheville Inn to Relax

January 24th, 2011 by stacy

Begin at dawn in Black Mountain, the quaint “front porch of Western North Carolina”, and follow trails to the “rooftop” of Western North Carolina, the 6,684′ summit of Mount Mitchell – eastern America’s highest point – then return to the start/finish area! With a starting altitude of 2,360′, the elevation gain for this 40-mile run will be 4,324′ – in the first 20 miles! Race founders Wendell Begley of Black Mountain Savings and Trent Thomas from Black Dome Mountain Sports saw a need for this kind of event for both the elite athlete and the weekend warrior. Their goal was to design a race that was attainable physically while offering the opportunity to test oneself against the often-uncooperative forces of nature! The Marathon runners start side-by-side with the Challengers and duplicate their course to the Black Mountain Gap overlook on the famed Blue Ridge Parkway. Here, at an elevation of 5,340′ and with an extraordinary view of Mount Mitchell as a backdrop, Marathoners will turn and retrace their course to the Start/Finish area in Black Mountain.

Whether you are running, a part of the support crew or just a part of the cheering throngs, end your day at this Asheville Inn.  Sink into one of our claw-foot soaking tubs to ease the days fatigue. Book your accomodations in the Grace room and sit in front of the fire to take the chill out of your bones then curl up in your comfy king size bed and enjoy get a good nights sleep. Wake up to the smell of breakfast being prepared. Let us send you out with a full tummy.

The race is Saturday, February 26th . It starts at 6:45am.  Marathon and Challenge competitors assemble on starting line at the bottom of Cherry St. in Downtown Black Mountain. Race starts promptly at 7am.

Asheville FringeArts Festival January 20-23

January 18th, 2011 by stacy

And now for something uniquely Asheville — a performing extravaganza on the fourth weekend of January.

The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival provides artists with opportunities to explore the edges of their work, collaborate across genres and bring new and innovative performances to culturally adventurous audiences.

The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival serves patrons of art from Asheville and beyond by facilitating the creation and production of avant garde work that may otherwise not find a venue. In past years the artistic mix has included actors, dancers, singers, videographers, painters and musicians, presenting a varied range of interesting work including cross-genre improvisation, Butoh dance, sketch theatre, modern dance, and multi-media performance art. The spirit of the festival also leaves the city “vulnerable” to random acts of art, such as fire-dancing in the street or mass mobs of poets.

Each venue plays host to a variety of performers, assuring an interesting mix to challenge and delight audiences. The BeBe Theatre is the Fringe headquarters and box office for tickets, but they will have other venues for the amazing artists and performances in the upcoming festival.  The four venues are: Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center; Asheville Art Museum; BeBe Theatre and River Arts District.

Your venue for the weekend is the Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast which provides a comfortable bed, fantastic food and puts you close to all of the action.  Join us on the Fringe!
