I am so happy and proud of our accomplishments at Abbington Green in 2015. The team has done a wonderful job focusing on offering our guests an exceptional level of customer service. We were awarded our second AAA Four Diamond Award, BedandBreakfast.com named us one of the Top 10 Inns in the U.S., and InnRoads.com named us the 2015 Independent Hotel of the Year. Huge thanks go to our team and our guests for their continued support!
In 2016, my personal focus for the Inn is to to reach out to more local partners to bring the best to our guests at Abbington Green. We will continue to offer local North Carolina cheeses during our 5pm Social Hour, and to prepare our breakfasts using locally sourced, organic ingredients whenever possible. Our second floor gallery of the Main House will continue to showcase local artists.
This year, we look to add more package deals for our guests to enjoy more of the best things that Asheville has to offer, like personal waterfall and brewery tours.
Just this week, we attended our first Asheville Industry Networking Event where I met some amazing people doing wonderful things in our city. It was held at the Catawba Brewing Company.
At the meet up, besides getting to sample some terrific local beer, I had the opportunity to meet wedding officiants, photographers, restaurant managers, event planners, videographers, and even a bride and groom having their wedding here in town. I was so excited by all of these new contacts and the new adventures that I can help to bring to our guests at Abbington Green in 2016.
Stay tuned for more...there are some great things in the works for this year.
All the best,
