Sightseeing
--You must book a reservation time. Ideally book in advance on-line. --Plan to be there at least 30 minutes prior to your house entry time--you need that time to park, go through security, get the shuttle or walk to the house, etc. --In addition to the house, there are gardens, greenhouses, a winery, and many restaurants. Some people spend an entire day here.

--Watch the sunset from the patio (perhaps with a drink from their bar). --Do visit the Grovewood Gallery behind the hotel, as well as the antique car museum. --If it's Christmastime, check out the Gingerbread House competition. But be sure to check the hours on their web site for this.

Food scene
It's hard for a restaurant to survive in this town is it isn't good. So if a place has been in business for a couple years, it's probably good. That said, here are a few of our standbys.
Delicious, healthy fare. They are usually able to make changes to accommodate dietary needs. In an old house. Ideal for a lazy weekend breakfast. And not too far from the NC Arboretum if you're headed there.

Our favorite place for tapas. Reservations recommended. It's quite dim inside, so have your cell phone flashlight at the ready to read the menu! Get there a little early and head around the corner to Malaprop's -- downtown's local indie bookstore.

A "cathead biscuit" is one that is the size of. . . you guessed it. And those are what they serve here. They're huge and they make entire meals out of them (e.g. with BBQ, fried green tomatoes, etc. . .), so go hungry. We don’t like to wait in lines, thus we get there close to their opening time. If you go too much later, you’ll have to stand in a line that goes out the door and around the corner. (Their closest location is just 3 miles from us on Hendersonville Road. Though if you’re looking to visit West Asheville, that’s our favorite location.)

Another of our favorites. Caribbean fusion. Great menu, but the specials are always delicious, too. Good vegetarian, dairy-free, and vegan options as well. We love the coziness of the Montford location, but like the closeness of their South Asheville location (just 5 miles away). They don't take reservations, so get there when they open, or be okay with waiting for a bit.

We grew up in New York. So did the owner of this place. We know good pizza. He knows good pizza. Go here. Oh -- and the desserts are REALLY good, too.

Two words: Liquid Truffle. It's like super thick hot chocolate -- so thick they serve it with a spoon! They have plenty of other delicious chocolatey options. Friday and Saturday nights they'll be lines out the door. So go during the day, or with someone you like talking to while waiting in lines:)

There are at least 20 local craft breweries downtown. And we could probably recommend them all for various reasons. But for a different vibe, head over to Sierra Nevada. Yep, those same folks who started out in California chose Western NC as the location for their second brewery. And it's quite a site to behold! They have a great restaurant/taproom, plenty of outdoor space for eating and drinking, games outside and upstairs (for kids and adults). Just trust us. Go check it out. If you want a free tour of the brewing operation, book at least a month in advance. Or stop in to the tour office before heading into the Taproom and see if they have any cancellations.

-Check out the chalkboard next to the long tables in the back for their $5 wine specials. -They have snacks, or head over to the cheese place next door and they'll bring your order over. -Live music every night. No cover. -Great place for a solo person to hang out at the bar--all kinds of nice people to meet. -Sit by the open windows on a warm night for people watching both inside and out.

-We like to visit the local artists selling their wares outside the Grove Arcade. -We also really enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine while wandering the Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar which is located here.

Avoid I-26
We avoid I-26 as much as possible. If using Waze and they recommend you take it, usually they are right and the traffic is fine, but our suggestion is to look at the routes offered and choose the ones that don’t take you on I-26.
