My husband and I stayed at the Sourwood Inn, Room 11, on July 21, and we could not have been more pleased. The inn offers a beautiful, tranquil setting not too far from Asheville but off the beaten path enough to be a real retreat from civilization's hustle and bustle. But this is NOT to say the Sourwood is uncivilized - far from it! Room 11, with its fireplace and small balcony, was very spacious, soothingly decorated, and impeccably clean. The bathroom (sparklingly clean, as well) was a retreat unto itself, with a soaking tub and separate shower, both with forest view. Common areas - again, spacious and decorated in a pleasing, non-fussy country style - included a sitting area with fireplace, a separate library space with a nice selection of books, a game room and an airy dining room, which also featured outdoor seating. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The innkeepers were very accomodating, from supplying us with wine glasses and china for our carried-in supper to painstakingly helping us with driving directions upon our departure. Our stay was too short. If we ever return to Asheville, we will definitely try to stay at this wonderful inn.
