My visit to the Beaufort House was my first time in a US bed and breakfast and the Beaufort House will be incredibly hard to beat! Driving up to the beautiful Victorian home, surrounded by lovely gardens, was just the beginning. The hosts, the Muths, are charming, warm and friendly, and only too pleased to share the history of the home or the Ashville community or to set up reservations and interesting things for one to do . And I could easily walk to downtown Ashville. I had a wonderfully decorated room with antique furnishings and a very comfortablle bed and bath. Each room is different and you will fall in love with the magnificent central staircase. The home is spacious, filled with marvelous antiques, and best of all-a grand southern porch with rockers to lazily enjoy the view or to visit with the other interesting guests. Breakfast was fabulous-both the gourmet food and the exquisite presentation!
I really felt like I had stepped back in time in terms of the relaxed, welcoming atmosphere and yet, I had all the latest, top of the line amenties and conveniences-the very best of all worlds!
You will love a visit to the Beaufort House.
