We just returned from our second visit to Sourwood Inn, and we know there will be many more. This beautiful inn is nestled right in the midst of the trees on a mountain ridge; there couldn't be a lovelier setting. Whether you're looking for a place to get away from it all or a base from which to see Asheville and the North Carolina mountains, this is the perfect spot. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the grounds are idyllic with lovely walking paths, and the common areas--dining room, great room, patio and deck--are inviting and charming. The delicious, hearty breakfasts are fabulous, and we highly recommend having dinner at the inn at least once during your stay. The chef creates amazing dinners from fresh, seasonal ingredients, and her desserts are to die for. Susan, the innkeeper, has a delightful energy that helps you begin to relax the moment you walk through the door. She gave us great suggestions on everything from hiking trails and birding spots to the best restaurants in Asheville. I truly cannot say enough about the Sourwood Inn. Just go. Trust me. You will not be disappointed!
