Ascending the winding drive, the rest of the world falls away as the Orchard Inn of North Carolina comes into view. Situated on a 12-acre mountaintop with stunning views, this North Carolina inn, built in 1926, has long been a favorite retreat with its wraparound porches and large, inviting living room with stone fireplace. Guest quarters are furnished with period pieces and antiques. Cottages feature fireplaces, whirlpools, and private decks. Enjoy fine dining on the glassed-in dining porch overlooking the gardens, vineyard, and mountains. Guests explore nature trails, watch birds, and experience the peace and tranquility of this lovely elegant Asheville bed and breakfast.
