Wake up to scenic snow-covered mountains and then treat yourself to a sumptuous three-course brunch. Sip your coffee and take in the spectacular view while noshing on flambeed banana stuffed french toast topped with a fresh, local berry sauce. Are you getting hungry yet? Trust me, if that wasn’t enough, there are many more reasons why you should visit Asheville NC this season.
After fueling up, enjoy a one hour massage for two with an unparalleled blend of philosophy, technique, product and personal attention. Every single treatment is customized. You’ll finish feeling pampered, refreshed and relaxed. This is what vacation is all about!
Continue your rejuvenation at the Orchard Inn, which features nine guest rooms in the main building and five cottage suites complete with private decks, fireplaces and whirlpool baths. You can do as much or as little as you’d like to on your visit to Asheville. From snow skiing to reading by the fireplace, you can enjoy the view from outdoors or inside. No matter why you’re here or what you enjoy most, we are dedicated to helping you find it and making your stay one you’ll never forget.
The options for things to do during this season are vast, but we suggest a tour of the Biltmore house. The Biltmore Candlelight Christmas Evening is one of our favorites. During Biltmore Candlelight Christmas Evenings, candles and fireplaces will fill the home with a warm glow. It will be accented with delicate ornaments and priceless treasures with sparkle and metallic shine, while music warms your heart. Other activities include a trip to Connemara, Carl Sandburg’s home; the Flat Rock Playhouse, North Carolina’s State Theatre; and the internationally-known Brevard Music Center. You’re certain to have a blast while you’re out and about.
When you return to the Inn, indulge in a bottle of Francois Montand champagne and a holiday dessert prepared by Chef Marianne. The tiramisu is a great selection! We also offer an extensive wine list. We pair tiramisu with the Pacific Rim Vin de Glacier ice wine, but have many different options by the bottle or glass.
