French Broad River Campground: Like Trains?
This campground was a great experience- it is located on the beautiful French Broad River. The campsites are spacious and include water/electricity hook-ups. Each site is located on the river and the location is very peaceful. The price is reasonable and makes for an affordable weekend getaway!
This campground has one unique characteristic- there are train tracks across the river and every night around 3 or 4am a train comes through. When you are sleeping in the tent, you literally think the train is going to run you over, it is that loud! It is actually very cool if you don't mind getting your sleep interrupted.

Richmond Hill Inn: A Peaceful Escape
Richmond Hill Inn is removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; it was a relaxing experience from the beginning to the end of our three-day stay.
Hospitality is key at this historic property. All staff members were friendly and helpful at every opportunity. Everyone at the inn seemed to know that this was our seventh anniversary; we were wished 'Happy Anniversary' even by the cleaning staff!
The grounds of the Inn cover 40 acres, including extensive gardens in full-bloom when we visited in late May 2004. The main guests areas are the Mansion, the gardens, the Garden Pavilion, the Croquet Cottages (both added to expand accommodations) and the croquet court.
The Inn is beautifully and tastefully decorated, and rich with historic interest. Opened as an inn by Dr. and Mrs. Michel, from Greensboro, NC, in September 1989 after a $3-million, three-year, historically-sensitive restoration, the property dates to the late 19th century. Richmond Pearson (1852-1923) built Richmond Hill in 1889. The Queen Anne-style mansion, part of a self-sustaining estate, became a center of social and political life in Asheville for years.
The Inn has named all its rooms for members of the Pearson family (the Gabrielle Pearson Room, the Richmond Pearson Room) or for those connected with Asheville (the F. Scott Fitzgerald Room, the Sidney Lanier Room). And ours, the O. Henry Room named for William Henry Porter who wrote under the name of O. Henry. This room is on the second floor at the rear of the mansion. A well-used, two-volume set of the complete works of O. Henry sat in the bookcase.
Gabrielle's, the restaurant located in the main mansion, offers excellent food and attentive service. Make reservations for dinner early because the restaurant is popular with the Inn's guests, and with locals.

Plaza Motel: Plaza Motel
$40-60/night depending in season
Looks like it came straight out the 50's - little roadside motel run by a nice family. The place is literally steps away from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate and even though it is not as nice as one of the chain hotels, it is clean and safe and a great value for the money.
