On Saturday June 9th we are welcoming the public into our inn as part of the Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association’s second annual spring tour of inns. Tour goers will have two days, Saturday and Sunday to visit 15 of our historic B&Bs and their gardens. At each inn, an area restaurant will provide samples of Asheville’s renowned local cuisine. A Bed of Roses is partnering with BOCA this year, one of our favorite places to eat. BOCA describes their cuisine as “Modern American with a Latin Flair” – we describe it as delicious!
A part of the proceeds of the tour will go to the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project (ASAP) so the tour this year is really geared toward locally sourced foods prepared by the master chefs of our locally owned and operated restaurants. With gardens in full bloom It should be a treat for all of the senses!
We are proud to help support ASAP’s mission of promoting local food, increasing access to fresh healthy food and strengthening community farming.
Last year nearly 200 visitors came on the tour, all curious to see our historic properties up close. We really enjoyed sharing the history of our B&B and giving guests a chance to sample great local food. Asheville residents as well as out of town visitors all enjoyed the day and this tour promises to be even more fun!
Tickets are still available the day of the tour at any participating inn or at the Asheville Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center, 36 Montford Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801. They are $30 each or $50 per couple (cash or check only).
