Our last contest was a two-night midweek luxury getaway to the beautiful Pinecrest Bed & Breakfast near downtown Asheville! Staying on Sunday-Thursday nights have many advantages, including missing the weekend crowds. Enjoy quieter hiking trails, fewer tourists on the Parkway, easier parking downtown and a better chance at restaurant reservations!
This 5-room boutique B&B was built in 1905 in the historic Montford neighborhood. Downtown is an easy one-mile stroll on shady residential streets by grand homes. You'll be about three miles from Biltmore. Owners Dan and Diane love to pamper their guests and customize the experiences for each. They will make sure your mountain getaway is absolutely fabulous.
Congrats! Our drawing was held on July 17th. The winner is Jean in Winter Haven, Florida! Next contest coming in September.
Awake each morning to a homecooked, multi-course breakfast at 9 AM by Diane. She loves to use organic and buys from local farmers. She is happy to accommodate special dietary requests (just let her know when you book your stay).
Each of their guestrooms is uniquely decorated with fine furnishings, private bath, Turkish towels, robes and many extras. This is the Grace Suite located on the first floor. Go to their Web site to see more of the guestrooms.
Each afternoon, find fresh desserts in the parlor (like salted caramel dark chocolate cookies, gooey pecan bars or peanut butter stuffed brownies). Find many of their recipes in the Asheville B&B Cookbook. Plus, enjoy complimentary drinks and a glass of wine. For dinner, walk to several neighorhood restaurants. We suggest taking a scenic walk downtown to dinner, and Uber back to the inn.
Their backyard terrace is the perfect place for morning coffee or evening drinks. Go to the Pinecrest B&B website for more photos and info.
The location of Pinecrest B&B couldn't be better. While it's located in a peaceful, beautiful residential neighborhood, you are near so many things to do. They sell Biltmore tickets that include a free extra day on the estate. The River Arts District is just a few miles away as well.
The winner also receives two tickets to a hilarious LaZoom Comedy City Tour or Haunted Tour. Read more about them.
The winner will pick the dates for their two night stay on Sunday-Thursday nights through November 30, 2018.
Throughout 2018, we'll give away many romantic getaways to Asheville and the North Carolina mountains - including grand bed and breakfasts and luxury inns. Check back on this page for future contests.
