Asheville and nearby small towns in the Blue Ridge Mountains offer so much by way one-of-a-kind places, mirroring the mountain city’s long reputation for being unique and a little weird. Boutique hotels are typically no bigger than 100 rooms and tend to score big on personality. They offer one-on-one hospitality, unique ambience and shy away from the traditional, corporate hotel vibe. Boutique hotels in Asheville offer a rich, local flavor with custom touches and creative offerings for guests. Some offer a bar and restaurant with locally sourced ingredients, chef-driven menus, modern cocktails and regional wine and beer. Feature photo: The Foundry Hotel, Asheville
