Head to western North Carolina any time of year to experience the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Soak in the relaxing vibes with a stay at a mountain inn or bed & breakfast as a destination itself, or as a jumping off spot to explore the area.
Bed and Breakfast on Tiffany Hill
Tiffany Hill Bed & Breakfast is a 25-year dream come true for owner Selena Einwechter and her passion and hospitality is what makes this place very special. Located on six acres in Mills River, North Carolina, Tiffany Hill B&B offers casual elegance filled with Southern hospitality. The B&B has seven guest suites, luxurious amenities, piped in music and an amazing 3-course gourmet breakfast. (You can purchase her cookbook with the recipes in the guest shop).
Grab one of the rockers on the front porch for stunning views of the countryside or take a stroll through one of their seven gardens. Each room/suite is designed after a Southern town. When I visited last spring, I had the privilege of staying in the Natchez Suite offering old-world French flair. Named for Natchez, Mississippi, this suite features a queen-size poster bed, a large soaking tub with shower and a window seat overlooking horse pastures.
From the Tiffany Hill B&B, guests can easily explore downtown Asheville, Hendersonville, DuPont State Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
