WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA Asheville has many fine restaurants, galleries, bookstores, and shops. We can refer you to great hiking, river rafting, birding, and scenic drives.
Come immerse yourself in a place of great beauty that nurtures both body and spirit. Located on a 24 acre nature preserve, we are W.N.C.’s oldest organic, holistic B&B, renowned for our healthy, gourmet breakfasts, the beautiful organic gardens, and the simple elegance of our rooms.
Our 1910 Farmhouse and guest cottage are filled with treasured family antiques, fine paintings and handmade crafts. Lovely all-cotton linens and down comforters cover the beds while fresh flowers and herbs from the garden give each room a natural soothing ambiance. A stroll on the property reveals wildflower meadows, mountain views, forests, and a pond with gazebo. Our magical, renovated barn with its large decks is a perfect place for a wedding, an event, or just a quiet cup of tea watching for wild turkeys or deer in the meadow.
At the heart of this place, and our lives, are the beautiful, organic gardens, overflowing with flowers, herbs, vegetables, and an abundance of berries and fruit trees. An artist and gardener since childhood, Eve lovingly orchestrates a riot of color and abundance where ten foot lilies keep watch over asparagus fronds and cabbages share the same bed with roses and bronze fennel.
Our guests rave about their wonderful breakfasts where all the fresh picked goodies from the garden are combined with local eggs and other organic ingredients to create a delicious taste treat every day. Our guests go home dreaming about our breakfasts. As a Slow Food Bed and Breakfast, we are deeply committed to supporting family farms and serving food which is local, seasonal, and sustainably grown.
We offer a perfect balance for those who wish to retreat in a rural mountain setting and yet enjoy easy access to the restaurants and cultural offering of Asheville. We are so close to Asheville (20 minutes) and yet truly a world apart.
