My husband is a musician and university professor, so we've been all over the country for recitals, conventions, and performances, usually staying at historic B&Bs. We've been to places that were high-end and comfortable, but too "motel like." We've stayed at places where their idea of "charm" was lots of cherubs and frilly curtains. We've stayed where the gardens were lovely, but where the owners thought, well, that they were better cooks than they really were. BUT BILLY AND MICHAEL DELIVER THE GOODS. They have combined the historical with the personal in every room...this isn't a museum...alongside antique furniture are Scarlett and Rhett collectibles...old oil portraits are accompanied by lovely oils of Billy and Michael's mothers. The outcome is a real sense of the *living history* of this wonderful old house as Billy and Michael continue its story. Please read Chris S's review...he absolutely nails it. But I would add that the greatest charm of the place is dear Billy, who will, if prompted, share stories over breakfast with the guests gathered there; he reminds us that each of us who stays within those walls has become part of the house's history. We will never, ever visit Asheville again without a stay at the Reynolds Mansion.
