Southern Highlands Craft Fair returns

One of the most popular times to visit Asheville and Weaverville is during the Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands. The fair is held twice a year, and the next one is July 21-24.

Oddly enough, we still have three openings for that weekend here at Inn on Main Street bed and breakfast, at least as of this moment.

The Southern Highland Craft Guild, whose artists display their work at the fair, is one of the most selective guilds in the country. We know artists with MBAs and several years of commercial success who still are turned down for membership.

Several Weaverville artists, many of them regular exhibitors on the Weaverville Art Safari, are members of the guild and display their work at the fair. It’s a great opportunity to pick up some of the finest crafts in the nation in a single location.

Plus, July is a great time to be in the mountains. We wouldn’t pretend to claim it’s always cool and dry here, but compared to the rest of the sauna South, we are an oasis. Take a raft trip while you’re here and you’ll know what refreshing really means.

Stay three nights at Inn on Main Street and mention this post, and we’ll buy you a pair of tickets to the craft fair.

Something to Celebrate

We’ve decided that the best thing we have going for us at Inn on Main Street is a few thousand satisfied guests.

When we started innkeeping, we hadn’t fully comprehended what it would be like to have people visiting our home during some of the most sensitive times of their lives. They’re here for honeymoons, babymoons, engagements, their children’s weddings, and even to fulfill their bucket lists as time grows short. We’re moved to be bystanders and facilitators for these special occasions, and try to remind ourselves how important it is help our guests make their visit the best it can be.

One of the most common reasons for a romantic getaway is to celebrate an anniversary. Often the couple is in their 20′s and leaving a baby with the grandparents for the first time. Other times the anniversaries are milestones like 25 years, 40, 50 or more, monuments to a rock-solid commitment that has weathered years of changes. For those folks celebrating because they made the right choice in a mate, we’ve begun a gallery of anniversary pictures on our Facebook page. If you’ve celebrated your anniversary at Inn on Main Street, please send us your picture and we’ll post it on our new gallery.

And at our super son-in-law’s suggestion, we plan to create another gallery: Photos of babies who visited us en utero as their parents celebrated a babymoon, and also of babies conceived at Inn on Main Street. If only those walls could talk!
