My husband and I wanted to stay at an independently owned place for our visit to Asheville. Princess Anne appealed to us because it is more affordable than many B&Bs and not as "frilly." Slightly creaky floors and exposed pipes (painted to help blend) are part of the charm. So is the old-fashioned elevator with its metal gate inside door and non-automatic outer door. The breakfast was good, just not fantastic. The afternoon wine reception helped encourage interaction with other guests. Even though it was in the upper 80s/low 90s, the hotel is on a tree-lined residential street, so it didn't feel too hot - we sat on the comfy side porch in the afternoon and evening just relaxing. What really helped make our stay great was the staff. They made recommendations for scenic drives (to/on the Blue Ridge Parkway) as well as for dinner and things to do in/around Asheville - including where to park and a way to walk that was pretty & avoided the interstate off/on ramp. Little things helped make us feel that at the Princess Anne we really were guests - notwithstanding paying. : )
