Our Asheville B & B Association has a New Look !

May 2nd, 2012 by Stacy Shelley

Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast is a member of the Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association.  For over a year now the ABBA has been working on a new Logo,  new Website and an interactive Kiosk, which will be placed in our Asheville Visitor Center. Visitors can engage with a touch-screen interactive display on the kiosk and select a Bed & Breakfast based on individual needs. Guests can  can book online right at the kiosk, or make a phone call, to secure their stay.

The Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association is comprised of some of the most beautifully decorated historic Inns in Asheville.  And while each of these 16 homes is charming in their own way, they are not memories of grandmother’s house.

On May 8, 2012 we will be unveiling the new Kiosk, website and logo at  our ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Asheville Visitor Center.

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

June 14th, 2011 by Stacy Shelley

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.

No Rest this Winter for the Innkeepers at this Asheville Inn

March 1st, 2011 by Stacy Shelley

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.

It’s never too early to be thinking about Spring travel. For reservations or information about our Asheville Inn, please call 888-811-3053 or visit www.pinecrestbb.com.

Asheville FringeArts Festival January 20-23

January 18th, 2011 by Stacy Shelley

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!
