Fresh Local Strawberries from Full Sun Farm Served up here at this Asheville Bed and Breakfast

May 10th, 2011 by Stacy Shelley

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!”

Stay at this Asheville Bed and Breakfast and Experience the Grove Park Inn

November 16th, 2010 by Stacy Shelley

golfing ashevilleStay at the historic Pinecrest Asheville Bed and Breakfast from November 2010 through  March 2011 and we will arrange greens fees of $50.00 per round for any of our guests at the Grove Park Inn.  Discover the course that Golfweek magazine included in its 2005 “America’s Best” listings and Golf Digest named in 2004 as “one of the ten best courses in the United States that is 100 years old or more.” Designed by the legendary Donald Ross, the course is rated as the 8th best in North Carolina (with five of the seven courses rated higher located at legendary Pinehurst).

This is a shot-maker’s course, emphasizing accuracy over power in its 6,720 yard, par 70 layout. From beneath the crest of Sunset Mountain, the players’ ascent from the somewhat flat, yet undulating front nine to the gentle slopes and sometime steep inclines and descents of the back nine brings with it spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The course is immaculately maintained and is considered one of the finest conditioned courses in North Carolina.

Scenic Drives from this Asheville Bed and Breakfast

September 13th, 2010 by Stacy Shelley

Asheville’s proximity, snuggled into the Blue Ridge Mountains, provides guests to this Asheville Bed and Breakfast easy access via car and no shortage of opportunities to see the rolling landscape from the crest of the mountains that run primarily southwest – northeast.  North on the Blue Ridge Parkway: Craggy Gardens and Mount Mitchell. A short drive north from Asheville (24 miles from downtown) will take you up about 3,000 feet in elevation to Craggy Gardens and their Visitor Center (where you can pick up a trail map) with great views to the east and to the west. There is a large picnic area and a short hike to the top of Craggy Pinnacle. Continue north on the Parkway for nine miles and turn left onto N.C. 128 to Mount Mitchell State Park. This peak, the highest east of the Mississippi River, provides 360 degree sweeping views. In addition to expansive views, the Park offers an observation tower, hiking trails, picnic areas, a natural history museum and a restaurant.  You can return to Asheville via the same route.

South on the Blue Ridge Parkway: Mount Pisgah and Graveyard Fields. Drive south on the Parkway for a gradual climb with lots of tunnels and beautiful vistas. About 15 miles from Asheville is Mount Pisgah, a favorite hiking and picnic spot. The Pisgah Inn there offers good food and views from 5,000 feet in their restaurant that is open from April-October. Continue another 10 miles to Graveyard Fields (another popular hiking spot). Just before Graveyard Fields are great views of Looking Glass Rock. Return the same route back if you want a leisurely return or drop off the Parkway via Rt. 276 to Brevard (stopping for ice cream before taking Rt. 180 back toward I-26 and Asheville.

Cold Mountain Loop
This approximately 85-mile loop drive is a beautiful, hilly, curvy drive through a very rural area around Cold Mountain, made famous by the novel and major motion picture. From Asheville, travel south on the Blue Ridge Parkway. To view the famous peak, stop at Cold Mountain overlook at Milepost 411.9. (The views from the overlook are spotty with overgrown trees blocking most of the view. For the best view, go to the Wagon Gap Road Parking area at Milepost 412.2. Then walk back north on the Parkway a short distance.) At Milepost 423.2, take N.C. Highway 215 north for 13 miles. If you want to drive an extra 8 miles roundtrip to go to the base of the hiking trail, turn right onto Little East Fork Road. Views of the mountain here are very limited. Back at N.C. 215, continue for 5 miles. N.C. 215 will turn into Highway 110. Continue 5.3 miles. In Canton, turn right onto U.S. Highway 19/23 north. Turn left onto Church Street, and right on Newfound Road. Go 1.6 miles to I-40 East to return to Asheville.

Black Mountain Rag to Chimney Rock
Take exit 64 off Interstate 40 at Black Mountain to follow the Black Mountain Rag, a scenic route named for an old fiddle tune about the dark green Lauada Firs that give the Black Mountains their name. In musical terms, a “rag” is a tune with multiple twists and curves up and down the scales. This scenic route twists and turns through the mountains like the music itself. Coming from Asheville, turn right off the exit ramp at Black Mountain and follow N.C. 9 south towards Bat Cave. The road winds along the Rocky Broad River, joining Hickory Nut Creek near the intersection of U.S. 64, U.S. 74 and N.C. 9 at Bat Cave. Turn left and follow N.C. 9/ U.S. 64 east to the village of Chimney Rock. At Chimney Rock Park you can drive to the top of the Chimney overlooking Hickory Nut Gorge. Continue past Chimney Rock to see beautiful Lake Lure. Turn around at Lake Lure and head back. Instead of returning via N.C. 9 in Bat Cave, follow signs for U.S. 74 back to Asheville.

Our beautiful Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast in Asheville is close to everything you want to do and see this fall!  For details and reservations at our inn visit www.Pinecrestbb.com.
