My boyfriend and I stopped in Asheville on our way to Atlanta after hearing so many wonderful things about the town. We found the Biltmore Village Inn looking for accommodations near the Biltmore Estate. I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts, but my boyfriend had never before so convincing him was like pulling teeth. He finally agreed.
As I write this, I can hear him on the phone in the other room talking to his buddy about how much he loved the Biltmore Village Inn. We were greeted by the manager Drew with wine and a cheese platter made just for us. Drew even went to his house later that evening to get his i-pod docking station so we could enjoy our music!
When we arrived in Asheville we planned dropping of our bags and hitting up downtown for some great food and music. After having a glass of wine on the porch, listening to music and watching the sun set, we took a bath in the HUGE two person whirlpool tub, slipped into the cozy robes (provided by the inn) and spent the rest of the evening talking on the porch.
The next morning we had the best breakfast and coffee on the porch while we read the paper. The inns many cherry trees and dogwoods were in full bloom and we could see the blue ridge mountains from our table. Aaron, the innkeeper, greeted us and gave us all kinds of ideas for our next stay.
After our breakfast and getting our bags in the car, we couldn't imagine leaving so soon, so we cuddled up in a hammock in the garden for another hour.
Overall, the staff was helpful, friendly and overly accommodating. Every detail from the robes, to sheets, wine, breakfast, internet, flowers has been thought of. I never imagined I would hear my boyfriend bragging about a BnB to his friends. Now he (and I) can hardly wait to go back.
