For a hotel that was built in the 20s, this holds up as a modern getaway for couples, small groups or single travelers. The Princess Anne is a beautiful old house that has some old world charm (such as a sink in the bedroom versus the bath) but has been retrofitted to support modern life (free wifi that reaches every room). The location is perfect for visiting Asheville, it is easy walking distance from downtown, several pubs, cafes and Trader Joes. If you want to see the Biltmore, get your tickets here because you get 2 days for the price of 1!
The breakfasts were delicious and the wine and hors d'oeuvres were divine. We happened to be there during a winter storm that basically closed the city down. The staff made calls to find restaurants that were still open for dinner, and offered extra food from the kitchen. In the morning, I asked to borrow a shovel but they shoveled out our car while we had breakfast. That's just a hint of the fantastic service you get here!
If we are ever back in Asheville, this is where we will stay.
