With its breathtaking mountain views and southern hospitality, Asheville has always had the distinction of being a perfect marriage of urban and rural. The Applewood Manor also shares that vibe. Located in the Montford District, Applewood Manor is ten minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and three miles from the Biltmore Estate. Don't miss: The Biltmore Estate package. With a three-night stay, guests receive two Biltmore Estate Passes for $50 ($30 from January 3rd-March 31st). Both tickets are with unlimited use for two consecutive days, and it may take visitors that long to see all of the Biltmore Estate and Gardens.
Well-mannered pets are welcome in the Cortland Cottage. Booking online requires a two-night stay. Call if you want to book a single night. Prior approval is needed for children.
Not a conventional B&B, The Galloway House is four furnished apartments with full kitchens. The largest one has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Breakfast is provided, so guests enjoy the privacy of their own full apartment and the cozy convenience of a B&B. Some guests may even get an added thrill: the Galloway House used to be a funeral home, and though the owners don't put much stock in ghosts, 5 year-old Darwin, a guest, claimed to have seen four of them. The Galloway House is located in Savannah's victorian historic district and is 25 minutes from Tybee Beach.
Dogs are welcome, but the owner is allergic to cats. Children are welcome. Two-night stay is required.
