One of America's best fall locations.

I still dream that one day I can run this small Inn, spending my days baking, planning small events, writer's getaways, craft workshops, culinary escapes, hosting an intimate wedding occasionally and just enjoying life in a beautiful home with a garden in a serene setting.
Confession, I still have never been to Asheville, and for the past 2 years have been wishing to go each fall, but other circumstances have prevented it.
Asheville has so many exciting things to do outdoors, and beautiful drives in the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and Smoky Mountains. About once a month, I peruse on BBOnline for Inns For Sale.
I had my eye on The Lion & the Rose (above) forever. It was on the market for a few years, and I would just dream of the day. Looks like they have new owners, their website and blog makes me wish I was part of the family. Maybe one day when they are ready to retire... :)
Here are a few other breathtaking places to stay...
The Biltmore Estate at Christmas.
