We continued our fall trip through the Tennessee and North Carolina mountains and discovered this charming B&B, about 45 minutes outside of Asheville. We heard about this property from a couple we met while touring the Biltmore, and decided to give it a try. Boy are we glad we did!! (Thanks Steve and Jane!) My wife and I both enjoy red wines, and were told that Pine Crest hosts a weekly wine society, where friendly locals come to enjoy an amazing wine list and excellent food. We couldn't have picked a better flight, as the theme was Cabs from Australia. We sampled 5 different cabs and bought several bottles to take with us. For dinner we had filet and duck entrees, both were EXCELLENT. The staff was extremely friendly (Thanks Carl and Linda!) and helped us plan a great weekend. At their suggestion we visited Pearson's Falls, a beautiful nature walk and waterfall about 10 minutes from the Inn, and enjoyed a hike at FENCE, the local equestrian nature center. Our accommodations were very clean and comfortable (we stayed in small cabin with a large jacuzzi and fireplace) and the entire weekend was very peaceful and relaxing. We will definitely return next time we get back up to the Carolinas!
