Southern hospitality is alive and well, and this Asheville, NC bed and breakfast for sale is a shining example of it. This North Carolina Inn is a beautiful combination of historic charm and modern comfort, all located in one of the most exciting cities in the South.
Originally built in 1899, this Asheville Inn was actually designed by Richard Sharp-Smith, the same architect that designed the famous Biltmore mansion (which is only a few miles away). This heritage earned the inn a spot on the National Register of Historic Buildings, something not many other active bed and breakfasts can claim. And as famous as it is for its history, it might be even more well known for its luxury. It even hosted the cast of The Hunger Games when they filmed nearby.
Guests who stay in this Inn certainly do get Hollywood-level treatment. Though there are only 8 guest rooms, each is equipped with luxury bedding on a king- or queen-sized bed, private bathroom (several with jacuzzi tubs), and hotel-style amenities. Several rooms have fireplaces and sitting areas, and all of the furniture is period-appropriate to keep the look of the Inn consistent and properly historic.
Speaking of historic, the Inn is also located in Asheville’s gorgeous Montford Historic District, a nationally-chartered historic neighborhood that features some of the country’s best 19th- and early-20th-century architecture and design. History buffs and architecture enthusiasts often come to Asheville to see its pristine examples of Victorian, Queen Anne, and Colonial Revival styles. The neighborhood also hosts regular events such as festivals, historic home tours, and community events in the nearby park.
Asheville’s burgeoning arts scene includes a number of galleries and a strong performing arts community. The River Arts District is a popular tourist destination and is the home of the Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center and many other galleries. Guests can participate in Second Saturdays, a monthly art walk through area galleries with art, food, demonstrations, and other community events. There are also several playhouses and other performing arts venues nearby, including the Asheville Community Theatre and the Asheville Lyric Opera.
Younger guests will also come to Asheville for its busy live music scene. The Explore Asheville website lists some of the biggest live music venues and events in the city, and is worth checking out no matter what kind of music you prefer. Some of the bigger ones include the nation’s oldest folk music festival, the Mountain Dance and Music Festival; and the famed Shindig on the Green, a summer event that brings city dwellers and tourists out in droves.
Finally, Asheville itself lies in the center of the southern Appalachian mountains, making it a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and tourists. Outdoor activities abound in this region, leading some to call western North Carolina “the Playground of the South.” Guests to the inn can go whitewater rafting, hiking, biking, golfing, boating, and more without going more than a few miles away.
