Weaverville’s Shot at Fame

The Weaverville Art Safari is a busy time around here. Downtown Weaverville is jammed with pedestrians and motorists getting from one studio to another. The tour last weekend was no exception.

Adding to the buzz this year was the presence of public broadcasting host D.G. Martin and the crew from UNC-TV, in town to film a segment on

Weaverville for the Our State program. D.G. is something of a North Carolina renaissance man. He’s a columnist for 40 newspapers, on-air personality and host of North Carolina Bookwatch on UNC-TV, former secretary and vice president of the UNC system, a retired lawyer, and the guy who should have beat John Edwards in the 1998 Democratic primary for U.S. Senate. And he’s a hoot to have for a guest.

Our State producer David Hardy brought the whole project together. Photographer Mike Burke expected to shoot 40 hours of video to come up with a 10-minute segment for television. They also stayed at our B&B before to plan for this trip. Expect to see the Weaverville segment in an October episode of Our State.

The Weaverville Art Safari was just one aspect of what they were filming, but was sure to supply some color. This time the preview party moved to the new facility at Claxton Farm, and pretty much filled the place. Hundreds were at the party, which always features a silent auction and fantastic door prizes. We were told the food was outstanding, but can’t say personally. Because of the turnout, it was gone before we arrived. Mark your calendar for the next tour, on Oct. 29 and 30. Inn on Main Street still has rooms available.

Better Days for Asheville Area B&Bs

Posted on May 8, 2011

An article just came out in the Asheville Citizen-Times about the state of bed and breakfasts in the Asheville area, which includes Inn on Main Street in Weaverville.

Though all of us quoted in the article were caught off guard, we all expressed the same perception: Asheville is a bed-and-breakfast town, gas prices won’t stop folks from visiting the Biltmore Estate or staying at a B&B, and most of all, bed and breakfasts are the best way to get an insider’s view of our area. Why stay in a hotel when you can relax in a homelike environment and get the lowdown on the best restaurants, best events, best views and most memorable experiences to savor?

The writer also captured our optimism about B&Bs and travel to our mountains in general. We’re coming back from three years of a bad economy, and it’s time to enjoy life again. Come see what truly makes us a bed-and-breakfast destination.
