Expect outstanding Fall leaf color

Posted on September 16, 2010 

It’s official. The people who predict such things says the Autumn leaves along the Blue Ridge this year should be outstanding.

Last year was kind of a bust. The leaves went from green to brown. The two years before that, the colors didn’t even begin changing around here until October was almost over. But guests of ours who took drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway recently said little bursts of red and yellow are already appearing on Mount Mitchell.

Our rooms at Inn on Main Street bed and breakfast have been filling fast for the first half of October. But as regular leaf-peepers know, the peak colors don’t typically slide down to the elevation of Asheville and Weaverville until the last two weeks of October, and hang on into the start of November for Chimney Rock and DuPont State Forest. Anytime in October is a good time to catch the peak somewhere in the mountains.

For updates on what those fickle leaves are up to this year, check out the official Autumn experience page at exploreasheville.com.

Good reasons to visit Weaverville and Asheville

I don’t normally respond to other folks’ blogs because we stay so busy just trying to run our bed and breakfast. But I do try to keep up on what the world says about Asheville and about B&Bs here in particular. Most travel writers miss the mark when they write about our area, focusing on the obvious and advertised attractions: The Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn and Blue Ridge Parkway. All are well worth the publicity, but they are only part of the complex experience that is Asheville.

But I just came across a remarkable blog entry written by a first-time visitor to our area who captured the essence of the Asheville area better than any writer I’ve followed recently. See A Foodie Bibliophile in Wanderlust entry for Asheville written Sept. 8. Even though the author stayed at a B&B other than Inn on Main Street, I encourage everyone to read it.

And if that writer’s reasons to visit this area aren’t enough, it’s time again for Art in Autumn in Weaverville. Come visit on Sept. 18 on Main Street, Weaverville, as more than 100 juried artists display their work. Included in the fourth annual festivities will be music and food. The event is sponsored by the Weaverville Business Association, of which Inn on Main Street is a proud member.

If you need a place to stay, we’re just two blocks away.

We won the prize

Once in awhile, someone organizing a raffle or offering a promotion will find Inn on Main Street bed and breakfast online and fall in love with our Grandma’s House image.

That’s what happened when D’Jella Gray of WQMG radio station in Winston-Salem called last year to ask us to participate in the Kit-Kat contest, an on-air promotion that included a romantic trip to Asheville (and Weaverville, of course), and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We were honored that she chose us.

Turns out that the winner of the gift certificate, Tyisha Williams, had a friend who she said needed the trip more than she did. Because of Tyisha’s generosity, we got the sweetest folks staying with us, a couple who had sacrificed a lot for their family over the past year and indeed needed a romantic break.

Elizabeth and Roland Tita celebrated their fourth anniversary with us, enjoying a couples massage, an hour soak in a hot mineral bath, and a visit to the Biltmore Estate, all part of our Soaking Soulmates special. We wish them all the best, and thank D’Jella, WQMG and Tyisha for making it all happen.
