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.
