My wife and I were looking for a night or two away before the new year began, and I decided to take her to the Biltmore House. As I started looking at B&Bs in and around Asheville, I stumbled upon the Arbor House.
When comparing the Arbor House to other B&Bs, it looked like somewhere I could be comfortable. Many of the B&Bs in the area have Victorian style furniture, drapes, etc. That is not comfortable to me. The Arbor House is nicely furnished, yet it is in a way that made my wife and I feel very comfortable.
The house sits on Lake Tomahawk and has access to a 1/2 mile loop walking trail that circles the lake. It took us around 20 minutes to get into downtown Asheville & about the same to get to the Biltmore House. It's roughly a two hour drive from Winston Salem.
Our hosts were great and our time was very relaxing.
