Asheville and nearby small towns in the Blue Ridge Mountains offer so much in the way of 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, a unique ambiance, 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 Blind Tiger

Boutique hotels and other unique places to stay in Asheville often reflect the culture and heritage of the Appalachian mountains. While many are located in the heart of town, some offer rural settings with picturesque views and mountain ambiance. With fewer rules and restrictions, they also tend to be pet-friendly—a perk for you and your four-legged friend! Also, see Pet-Friendly Places to Stay.
