Posted by: Asheville BBA
Imagine cuddling up with your partner on a private cabin porch, watching as the sun sets over the mountains. This year, celebrate your anniversary with a romantic getaway to Asheville. Rent out a luxurious, private cabin and settle in for a weekend of reconnecting with your honey. Our Asheville insiders know a thing or two about romance. Let’s dive into your game plan for the perfect romantic anniversary trip to Asheville.
Book an Intimate Space
The key to the ultimate cabin weekend is to book a romantic, private chalet. Many bed & breakfasts in Asheville have remote cabins in the countryside available to rent as well. Additionally, if you want privacy and proximity to downtown Asheville, stay in a cottage or carriage house behind a local B&B. Make sure to book a suite with a jacuzzi tub for an extra passionate retreat. Add on other offers to sweeten your stay, such as an in-room couples massage, hand-dipped chocolate strawberries, or a bouquet of flowers.
Oakland Cottage is a charming bed & breakfast with private cabins, lovely rooms and tasty breakfast. Check out their specials to explore tempting add-ons such as in-room massages, food tour tickets, flowers and more.
Get the blood flowing with a late morning hike to enjoy a scenic picnic lunch. Let your B&B do the work, and add on a delicious lunch in a picnic basket for a small fee. Another endorphin-releasing activity is to hike to a beautiful sunset overlook, such as Beaver Lake or Lookout Mountain Loop. Not interested in doing any outdoor exercise? Indulge in a spa day at Shoji Spa. Spend the day with your love soaking in private saltwater outdoor hot tubs and enjoying a couples massage.
After a day of adventure, head back to your luxurious cabin from Engadine Inn and Cabins. With six striking wood cabins to choose from, you and your partner are sure to find the perfect private lodge.
Indulge in a Romantic Meal
Asheville is a dream destination for foodies. Take your sweetheart out for a delicious, sensual dinner at a local restaurant. Cúrate has a tapas bar serving sumptuous Spanish-style small plates and creative cocktails. If you’re looking for a white table cloth, contemporary restaurant, celebrate your anniversary with a meal at Posana. Want more meal ideas?

Wildberry Lodge offers scenic, cabin suites perfect for reconnecting with your partner. Experience jaw-dropping mountain and sunset views in a suite with a tub and shower big enough for both of you.
Try Something New
Connect with your partner this anniversary by learning a new skill together. Book a class at North Carolina Glass Center to develop your glass blowing expertise as a duo. Take home a souvenir pendant, ornament or decorative piece of glass. Another fun new experience is to taste test all the truffles in town. Visit French Broad Chocolate Lounge, The Chocolate Fetish and Asheville Chocolate to determine the winner. Alternatively, spoil your partner by making an appointment at Fox & Beaux downtown to jointly design a unique piece of custom jewelry.
If you’re interested in a more secluded stay, rent a Cumberland Falls cabin in Weaverville. Sleep in and enjoy gourmet breakfast at 10:30 am at Cumberland Falls Bed & Breakfast Inn. Add cupcakes, cheese platters, and more to your reservation to make it extra special for your partner.
