We had always wanted to visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC and finally got there in September for a long weekend. I checked various websites and then confirmed reviews on TripAdvisor and found the Abbington Green B&B. It is absolutely wonderful. The house and rooms are charming. Valerie, the owner, bought and re-did the house by herself and is the amazing chef. She is a true anglophile - the English feel of the house is everywhere - lots of pictures, books, momentos, the garden, etc. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the breakfasts amazing. It is very conveniently located to everything you would want do see and do in the Asheville area - besides the estate, where we spent a day and a half (check out the ticket that lets you arrive at 3 and come back the next day for free), we drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway which is amazing, visited the folk art center, had a drink in the famous Grove Park Inn and spent a day climbing around Chimney Rock Park and touring Lake Lure. Valerie has great suggestions for restaurants in the area. This is just a wonderful place to stay!
