Honeymoon in Asheville at a B&B

Did you just pop the question?  According to Wedding Wire, Valentine’s Day is second only to Christmas day in popularity for engagements.   Now you are in full on planning mode for your wedding with scores of decisions, details, and arrangements. We can help you with one decision:  honeymoon destination! Choose one of the inns of the Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association.

Visions of a secluded island or a spot halfway around the world may come to mind but consider your honeymoon in a location much closer to home like Asheville NC.  Located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is within 600 miles of half the population in the United States. Besides saving time and money, a vacation to Asheville becomes a location you can return to year after year to relive those memories that brought you together in the first place.

With 14 member inns, the Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association (ABBA) has a destination for everyone from historic properties to mountain lodges.  Romance comes standard at our b&bs as evidenced by our milestone guests who celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and Valentine’ Day in style. Many properties boast jacuzzi tubs, old-fashioned clawfoot tubs, private sitting areas, fresh flowers, afternoon desserts, and other amenities along with Romance package upgrades like a dozen roses, chilled champagne, or chocolate truffles.

The best part of picking an ABBA inn would be the personal concierge service our innkeepers provide to help you make the most of your honeymoon stay.  With over 105 years of collective experience amongst us, we have the best advice about mountains, music, beer and everything in between. List your interests and desires to your innkeeper who can help curate your honeymoon.

  • Hike, bike, drive!  Outdoor adventures abound in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  The tallest peak east of the Mississippi, Mount Mitchell, is an easy drive.  There are summit hikes like Craggy Pinnacle that offer 360-degree views. Or bring your bikes and take advantage of robust mountain biking in Western North Carolina.   
  • Splish, splash!  Water is ubiquitous in western North Carolina.  Choose a waterfall hike like Catawba Falls. During the summer, tube down the French Broad River.  Feeling more adventurous? Take a day’s drive to Sliding Rock for your turn down nature’s first 60 foot waterslide.
  • Eat, drink!  Asheville is home to a vibrant food scene and the innkeepers have lists of their favorites.  The area is also home to more breweries per capita than any other US city so sip a pint or two.
