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

Thanks! I'll check out those websites and see what I can come up with! I'll be sure not to mention any thing that might get your friend in trouble! Thanks for your effort!!

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.
