Sourwood Inn is our favorite place to stay in the Asheville area. The peaceful setting, fire place in every room, delicious breakfasts & gourmet dinners all contribute to a wonderful experience. The hosts are always welcoming, and ready to suggest activities and locations to visit in the area. The inn is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway which is a great scenic drive with views of colorful scenic mountains. The location of the inn is about 20 minutes from the center of Asheville on an extremely winding road, which may discourage some visitors. It is not the place to stay if you want to be "near the action", but we love the relaxing retreat that it is. We'll be back again next year!
