So to begin: where to stay? I'm sure that there are lots of great places to stay in Asheville. Here are our two favorites and some money saving tips for each.
Corner Oak Manor. This was the first place we ever stayed in Asheville and we have been back several times. Here are some of the great things about staying there:
It is in a great location and you can get almost anywhere you want to go in 10 minutes or less.
The owners, Karen and Andy, are so friendly and fun that you feel like you know them as soon as you meet.
The rooms are all cozy and clean.
The food is AMAZING. You will find yourself thinking about the next morning's breakfast before you go to sleep at night.
There are all sorts of fun extras, like a binder full of restaurant recommendations, tons of board games and books to enjoy, afternoon snacks, and a fridge filled with sodas and water and juice.
The best part is that the prices are super reasonable and they even have last-minute specials, so if you are a last minute trip planner, you can get an even greater deal! Plus, don't forget to factor in that amazing breakfast!
Inn on Biltmore Estate. I will be doing a separate post on visiting the Biltmore Estate, but just the Inn is worth a visit all by itself.
Stop by later this week and I'll tell you where we like to eat and what we like to do while we're in Asheville. Then you can start planning your own trip!
