Description

Circa 1908. Experience a bit of Britain only half-a-mile from downtown Asheville, North Carolina. The historic home surrounded by mature trees has been preserved to award-winning quality. A gardener’s delight, the inn features a boxwood parterre with a tiered fountain, an Oriental garden with a path of stepping stones, and an informal shade garden. One of the common rooms offer a solid brass chandelier and the sun shines through original windows to light an English décor. Highlights of the eight guest rooms include king-size beds, whirlpool tubs, and working fireplaces. True luxury can be found in the five-room Eaton Square Suite with a private entry, furnished porch, and kitchen with china and crystal. Two suites are dog-friendly. Home-grown herbs and local, organic ingredients are used in the daily breakfast that feels more like a lovely brunch with friends. Sit at one of two large tables beside the handmade oak mantel in the dining room.Publicity and Awards: Taste Dining and Travel, Asheville Citizen-Times, Summer Magazine, The Plain Dealer, Gazette, Blue Ridge Peak Magazine.Location: City/Urban.
