Labor Day and Leaf Color

  • fall frame

Posted on August 21, 2012 

Visitors are already asking about the autumn leaf change here in the North Carolina mountains, and the forecast is good for Asheville and Weaverville.

No, we can’t tell you what day will be the leaf peak for any given location. We’ve actually seen some bursts of color already in trees here and there, but I suspect that has more to do with how dry our summer has been.

And a dry summer is a good thing for leaf peepers. Local leaf experts say the drier the summer, the more vibrant the colors. Asheville has had a dry summer, and Weaverville has lived up to its former name of Dry Ridge.

We still have good availability for October, the month in which every day is the leaf peak at some elevation or another. In fact, we still have rooms available for Labor Day weekend. And now that we have pooch-friendly rooms, you can bring Fido for a traipse in the woods now that days have grown cooler.

More Zoom at the Inn

We are very excited to begin a partnership with Navitat Canopy Tours, named one of the top 10 zipline adventures in America by USA Today. Navitat recently was host to the stars of “The Hunger Games,” which was filmed largely in the woods near the ziplines in Barnardsville.We’ve paired a day of zipping, rappeling and other mountain adventures at Navitat with an old favorite of our guests: a one-hour soak in a private tub at Hot Springs Spa. Heck, if you book a third night at Inn on Main Street in Weaverville, we can book your whitewater rafting as well.To celebrate our new Zip and Dip package, we’re offering it at the midweek price of $569 per couple for the rest of this year, even on weekends and holidays. That includes two nights in a premium room as well. Of course, Navitat stays busy, so that’s subject to availability. Book early.

Teachers Need a Vacation, Too.

Posted on August 2, 2012

Being a former teacher (Nancy taught special education for 22 years), we know how important a break from the classroom is for anyone in the profession. It can be a time to renew, refresh and reflect.

We have hosted many teachers over the years at the Inn on Main Street. Teachers truly need a vacation.Some come with other friends, some with their significant others, some solo. Dan and I have heard stories, similar ones from across the country, of the stresses of dealing with more and more paperwork, difficult parents, behavior problems, too much testing, lack of classroom supplies, teacher cuts, low salaries. And yet I hear and feel their love of working with children and making a difference in their lives.

Teachers need to take care of themselves.

I’d like to think that we provide a respite for teachers to get away, relax, destress, and let someone else take care of their needs for a change.
We can suggest a quiet walk to take, a yoga class, a cooling waterfall to sit and reflect by, a zipline to get you energized, a crazy tour to laugh your head off, a filling food tour of Asheville with a little history included or just a porch to sit and relax with a good book and a refreshing glass of herbal iced tea.

The choice is yours, but we hope you’ll choose Inn on Main Street for your last chance at a summer vacation.
