A step back in timeFlag review
The Inn is very quiet and has beautiful vistas, but the best thing about it is its location in the midst of the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Asheville, NC and lots of wonderful rafting areas. Arriving there in the early evening, we had not had dinner yet. So the innkeepers sat us down on the screen porch, where they served us some fantastic ribs. What a way to end a day we started at Black Mountain with hiking and, Asheville where we followed the self-guided walking tour and saw many places we would like to return to. The next day, we explored the Blue Ridge Parkway. We ended the day watching the sunset at the end, and turned in early so we could rise early, have a fantastic breakfast at the Inn, and then go on to a day of rafting south of there. It is a place we have talked of returning many times since we left.
Tips for Families
Make sure to take the kids hiking before you go on to Asheville. You will wear them out, and they will be content to follow you around Asheville even if they are not so interested in the history and tour, as long as you ply them with snacks. The ribs will interest any 13-year-old boy, and the next day -- the rafting. They will be exhausted and have a backpack full of memories.
