A note from your host…
It's hard to believe the summer is more than halfway over! Asheville has been buzzing with activity. In addition to our usual music, art, crafts and antique festivals, we having been playing host to a horde of movie actors including Zach Galifanakis, Owen Wilson and Kristen Whig who have been filming an as yet unnamed action-comedy in multiple sites around town. But it all will calm down for a while as people prepare for the new school year and the end of the summer holidays. This means that late August and early September are the perfect times to visit our city and mountains. While the crowds are slightly less, there is still plenty going on. Mountain trails are quieter, offer tranquil late summer peace to hikers. Chefs use the lull to indulge in great flights of imagination and cuisine with the final bounty of our summer markets. and, while there is still heat to the summer days it is tempered with cooler evenings and nights. Sitting on the front porch of the Carolina Bed & Breakfast you will enjoy a concert from the August tree-frogs and a light show from the fireflies. It always makes us feel so privileged to live in such a beautiful spot, we would love to share it with you.
