Mountainscorpia sent us some of these links last year for her gathering in Burnsville, NC (about an hour from Asheville). We stayed as a family in a very reasonably priced cabin on the Toe River off of the first site. The other two are bed and breakfasts.

If you can't find anything in Asheville for the time of year you are going you may consider a little less "touristy" area (not far from the "touristy" area so you can see any attractions you want to see) but every bit as lovely.

Thanks for the information about events at that time. I DO NOT want to go during something that makes things more crowded!!!! It may turn out that we want to wait until after school starts - it would make it easier on my father-in-law who will be keeping our kids if he has a break from them during the day!! I didn't know if late August /early Sept would be good - that should be before fall foliage time shouldn't it?

Thanks!

We visited Asheville over Labor Day weekend 2 years ago and it was very pleasant weather. No, the leaves weren't changing noticeably yet.

The Mt. Mitchell Craft Fair is always the first weekend in August in Burnsville. This is a Fri/Sat event 40 miles from Asheville in a very walkable small town (my house is about 1/2 mile from the town square). I may very well be off camping that weekend, and you're welcome to stay here, if you don't mind dog hair. My Southern Highlands event boxes will all be re-clued and re-placed well before then, plus there are boxes in the yard, left by other boxing guests.

You're really sweet! We'll probably want to be in Asheville because I think we will probably only have a couple of nights to be there (can't impose on the babysitter too long!!)

Thanks!

here's the copy of the e-mail I received from my friend Madelyn......I can promise you that her recommendation is on the money-she's been in the business for about 20 years! Good luck!!

Well, I have connections--but I can't get them a deal. Especially during the summer. But here goes:
The Inn on Montford (Lynn or Ron) 1-800-254-9569 Not cheap, but unbelievable Wonderful rooms with all the amenities
She is working on her website--it is horrible now (I have been telling her this for years--but I have finally gotten her working She is one of my dearest friends.) http://www.innonmontford.com
Cumberland Falls (Patti) Interesting Victorian http://www.cumberlandfalls.com 888-743-2557
Ponder Cove (Martha) in Mars Hill (Haven't been there but Martha is absolutely wonderful--Hope to go soon, though) www.pondercove.com 888-689-7304
The Waverly Inn (Diane) Hendersonville (She is also one of my dearest friends--but don't tell her I recommended Lynn--They had a huge falling out--so I have to tiptoe around that :) Let's just say it is so bad and that is why I am telling you. http://www.waverlyinn.com (800) 537-8195

Take it from someone who lives in Asheville.

If you want something approximating your honeymoon experience, you can not beat the Grove Park Inn for ambience and amenities.

This is where my wife and I had our wedding reception....the sun sets over the Blue Ridge will blow any other local place away....no lie.

You've been given a lot of great info already and there's not much I can add. The Grove Park would be fantastic, but I'm not sure if you could find anything there for your stated top-end price of $150 a night. Maybe... and they do offer package deals which vary in price depending on the time and season you go.

Everything up here is cheaper if you can come up mid-week for a few days instead of including weekend time.
