On Monday, November 11, 2013, all veterans can stay for FREE in five of our select Asheville B&B guest rooms (based on room availability).

The B&Bs for Vets program started in 2008 when Kathleen Panek, co-owner of the Gillum House B&B (http://www.gillumhouse.com/) and a handful of other innkeepers in West Virginia opened their doors to veterans in honor of Veteran’s Day. The program grew in popularity among innkeepers, and last year more than 750 inns in the US and Canada participated by offering free rooms to vets.

Start your stay at this Asheville, NC Inn with a stroll around the lively sidewalks of downtown Asheville for the free Center City Art Walk on Friday August 6. Galleries stay open Friday evenings four times a year to showcase new shows and artists. You can walk to 30 galleries in the downtown area — enjoying the fine art and crafts that they have to offer –  including exhibitions featured at  The Haen Gallery and 16 Patton! Also don’t forget to stop by Jewels That Dance, one of Asheville’s finest jewelry galleries showcasing the design studio of goldsmith Paula Dawkins, and celebrating its 26th year in historic downtown Asheville. Gallery Minerva has a new home at 8 Biltmore Avenue. Also a must see is the region’s largest studio glass art collection The Bender Gallery.  And that is just Friday.

On Saturday, after feasting on a wonderfully prepared and very filling breakfast at this Asheville Bed and Breakfast, head down to Biltmore Village for the free Village Art & Craft Fair.  This event takes place at the historic and beautiful Cathedral of All Souls in Biltmore Village (near the entrance to the Biltmore Estate). The fair hosts 125 artists from 20 states representing the full spectrum of craft media – jewelry, ceramic, wood, fiber, metals, two-dimensional art and more.

The festival is also on Sunday noon to 6. We recommend taking a trolley ride to Biltmore Village.  Board your trolley at the Visitor Center and enjoy a beautiful ride through Asheville. Tickets can be purchased at this Asheville Lodging or at the Visitors Center just 4 blocks away.  Tickets  for adults are $20 per person; Children (5-11 years) $10.  This is a great way to get familiar with Asheville and  as a bonus get dropped off at the Village to enjoy the fair. When you are ready to head back, hop back on the trolley and take a leisurely cruise through Asheville. The trolley will drop you back at the Visitors Center just 4 blocks from this Asheville, NC Inn.
