Want a step back in time? 27 Blake St. is a Victorian mansion that will take you there. The room was decorated with antiques, the bath had a claw tub with a shower. The Inn Keeper, Carolyn, (a life-long resident of Asheville) was an endless source of information on restaurants, attractions and short cuts. The price was truly reasonable. Though breakfast wasn't included, that was fine with us as we rarely eat early.
The grounds are lovely, even at the end of winter. Ponds and large yard added to the beauty of the place. The front porch was a great attraction as the birds welcomed the day and we braved the coolness of the morn with our coffee mugs warming our hands. Do give it a try.....
