Well, Asheville is very ready to celebrate with you this Father's Day weekend! This Asheville bed and breakfast is smiling once more with the fun that's lined up for you.
You can start off after your arrival on Friday with "Downtown After Five". Free, and very much like a block party, this series of musical events happen once each month, on the third Friday of the month...and the one lined up for June is this Friday, June 17th. It's just a 'hop, skip and a jump' from our Asheville bed and breakfast to Downtown where you'll find the the music and the party going on along North Lexington Avenue. And afterwards, you can wander Downtown to find a splendid meal at one of the many fun and fabulous eateries here in Asheville.
And for Sunday, Father's Day from 1-5pm, you won't want to miss the benefit Garden Tour, this year featuring gardens in the Kenilworth neighborhood. You can pick up your garden map at the Kenilworth Presbyterian Church and start your walking tour of more than a dozen gardens. Among them are a couple of outstanding gardens: The late horticulturist Doan Ogden's 6.5 acre property now belonging to the expert hands of John Cram and partner. It's a true treasure and includes what is said to be one of the finest moss gardens in the country.
The Kenilworth Tour also includes the garden of renowned garden writer Peter Loewer, who will be on hand to answer questions about the plants and the design of the gardens. Other artists and homeowners in the neighborhood will also be opening their gadens for what promises to be a feast for the senses and a learning experience for all. And Dad's on the Tour will get a boutonniere for the Father's Day occasion! Tickets are $25 per couple and $15 per single person.
So, yet another fun weekend awaits you here in Asheville...and of course, a stay at our Asheville bed and breakfast will put you exactly where you need to be to relax, and to get to the events you choose! See you soon!
