We hope you had a happy holiday season. Here at the lodge we had a wonderful time. We did our decorated tree with gifts below, the twig tree and poinsettia on the deck , the mantel stars and the stairway winter village to celebrate the season. However, I knew we had some real decoration competition when I pulled into our driveway and saw the woodie station wagon decked out with presents on the roof complete with a string of solar powered lights. They even had a red reindeer for a hood ornament. When the car's owners, Ted and Marina, came down the next morning in their matching, pink, Christmas bunny suits, I knew we had been beat. They then explained with a swing of their floppy ears that they had bought the suits last night at a Walmart close out for $5 each. They couldn't resist "new ears" for the New Year. They brightened the entire lodge and brought a smile to everyone's face.
Now the season is coming to an end, Winter is settling in,
Asheville crowds have thinned
So now is a good time to visit the inn!
(How is that for poetry)
Winter can bring anything from frozen waterfalls to springlike days around here but it is also a time for money saving deals! Our winter rates are now in effect thru the end of February and will save you 15%. Our Biltmore Estate winter tickets are down to $50 for adults thru March 20th and are still good for 2 consecutive days.
