This weekend, Asheville B&B Tour benefits ASAP
From the Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association:
"Asheville is known for its historic buildings and homes set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains as well as for its amazing food scene. The Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association Spring INN tour combines both of these in a two day event designed to delight your eyes and your palate. Fifteen of the finest Bed and Breakfasts in Asheville are partnered with regional restaurants in a two day tour benefiting the Appalachian Sustainable Agricultural Project.
The first day will take you on a walking tour of some of Asheville’s most historic neighborhoods where you pass through homes built during the 1890’2 to 1920. Among the style of home you will tour are Queen Anne, Victorian, and Arts & Crafts. Many were built by leading architects of their time, even the Biltmore Estate lead architect left his stamp in some of these homes. Stunning gardens, beautiful antiques and original artwork are features of these homes.
One the second day, you will visit some of the surrounding towns and outlying neighborhoods of our city. Panoramic vistas of the mountains will make your drive a pleasure. From Grand Mansion to Organic Farmstead, you will be delighted by your destinations as you explore the countryside.
Each Bed and Breakfast has partnered with a local restaurant, offering you a taste of Asheville in a gastronomic tour to rival the architectural.
This year proceeds from the Spring INN tour will be donated to the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project. ASAP helps create and expand local food markets, preserving our agricultural heritage while striving to give everyone access to fresh, healthy food and keep our farms running. Their mission is to support local agriculture, linking farmers to markets, and building healthier communities through connections to local food."
