Minutes away from the cosmopolitanism and urban charm of downtown Asheville and Hill House bed and breakfast are the ancient and serene Blue Ridge Mountains, the highest in eastern North America.
The 75-year-old Blue Ridge Parkway, one of the country’s engineering wonders, runs along the crest of the mountains and passes just outside of the Asheville city limits. It transports drivers and cyclists to an awe-inspiring wonderland of majestic scenery, tiny mountain towns, and craftmanship with a legacy of generations. It's just one of many scenic drives in the mountains.
With a 10-degree temperature difference from Asheville and a heaven’s bounty of waterfalls and swimming holes, hikes through the Blue Ridge and adjacent forests are a summer’s day dream all along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Each fall, the color show attracts people from around the world. Winter seldom brings snow into the city, keeping the wintry weather to the higher elevations.
From the Hill House bed and breakfast, drive the beautiful Town Mountain Road up the mountainside to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Head north toward Mt. Mitchell or south toward Mt. Pisgah. Take a picnic!
