I grew up in an old, rambling home in a neighborhood that was full of others of a similar age.
I still seem drawn to neighborhoods with them. When my husband and I visited Asheville, N.C. a few weeks ago, we stayed in a neighborhood that reminded me of my youth. (eons ago!) Each of these three homes were Bed & Breakfast Inns and were among so many more.
The one we chose is named Asheville Seasons and you can see the back side of it in the bottom right photo. We really liked it. My personal taste is old, but not fussy. This one was perfect. The inn keepers were a delight. Great energy, delicious breakfasts, lovely amenities and something near and dear to both my husband's and my heart...wifi throughout the house. (so much for getaways)
I'll tell you more about what we found in Asheville in another post or two. But for now, if you visit Asheville, consider the Monfort neighborhood
