About a month ago, I had the opportunity to stay at Bent Creek Lodge. It has an Asheville address – close to Asheville, but in a lovely out of the way secluded area. When we arrived during that week, it appeared that there was only one other couple there. Because our rooms were next to one another, Doug kindly moved us to the Water Room. (Can’t say enough good about that shower!)
Each room has an entry to the back balcony overlooking the ‘back yard’. I walked down to see Bent Creek and was rewarding with sculptures and stain glass along the way. Loe-D and Leona, the two lodge dogs, were there to encourage me along – even though they ran circles around me!
Breakfast was a treat. Jodee is an incredible cook and enjoys seeing others enjoy her food.
And, if you want to venture into downtown Asheville, it isn’t far. But, personally, I loved staying at the lodge, playing billiards (something I haven’t done for about 35 years), or taking a hike and then sitting on the deck with my book. Now – that’s relaxing!
