First off, I have to thank David for being so accommodating to our last minute travel needs--my boyfriend and I decided last minute to take a detour during our holidays travels to enjoy a new city, but of course once I started looking around Asheville four days ahead of arrival I was unable to find anything that met our expectations (good location, unique, affordable). Due to a last minute cancellation, David was able to call me back to offer the S&W room--our lucky day! We unfortunately arrived late afternoon and were unable to make it to breakfast the next day, but the short amount of time that we spent at the house will undoubtedly have me booking a longer stay in the future. For those who want to take in the quirkier side of Asheville, the short walk that gets you into the heart of the city offers tons of little coffee shops, bars, and stores. Sidebar: I wouldn't walk back at night (not because of the location of the inn, but part of the neighborhood that you would walk back through in the dark, not very well lit), but was still able to take advantage of the brewery and wine scene thanks to a quick $5 cab ride home.
No, you won't be in the "thick" of downtown--but the hotels that are seem to be overpriced for what they offer, and the cute little wooded neighborhood that the inn is a part of is still a very reasonable walk away, even in December. Hill House is charming, cozy, and exactly the type of spot I would want to stay in for an Asheville/Blue Ridge get-away. We shall return!
