- Visiting the Biltmore and daydreaming of life in this massive estate
- Heading to the new Sierra Nevada Brewery for a fascinating tour
Hospitality can be found around the world, but none like you’ll find in the south. Tucked away in small-town Mills River, North Carolina, Bed & Breakfast on Tiffany Hill is a fabulous case in point. Here, the three-course breakfast is gourmet, the 24-hour snacks and drinks are complimentary, and the seven guest abodes are suites, each inspired by a southern town. No wonder that the logo is a pineapple, the classic symbol of friendship and welcome and America’s answer to the olive branch.
No wonder, too, that this lovely inn was written up in Every Day with Rachael Ray, is a recipient of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, is an ILoveInns.com Top Ten Romantic Inn for 2016 and is the South’s first B&B to land a spot in Southern Living’s Hotel Collection. In fact, the inn was largely inspired by the pages of Southern Living. So in addition to basking in the southern hospitality, go and engage in some of that southern living: Visit nearby Asheville’s Biltmore Estate, bird watch or explore in the secret garden. Or, simply take out a book from the inn library and curl up on the seven-layer bed that comes with your suite.
Each inspired by a favorite southern town – such as Lexington, Beaufort or Charlottesville – the seven elegant guest suites aim to reflect the hospitality made famous by the south. With such delights as seven-layer beds, they do a pretty excellent job of it.
Less than 30 minutes from vibrant Asheville, Mills River is the perfect place to experience quaint southern living and explore North Carolina’s great outdoors, like the Pisgah Forest and Dupont State Park’s waterfalls. And, of course, to experience Asheville itself. This town is a special one, housing the Biltmore Estate, which belonged to a Vanderbilt and whose grounds were designed by none other than Central Park’s iconic landscape architect. It’s also got lots of cute boutiques, music venues and breweries for tours – including the new Sierra Nevada Brewery.
How to Get There
7 couples all from the Smyrna area in GA checked in on September 6 with Kay checking us in and giving us the history and tour of Tiffany Hill. Each morning Shellie and Heidi prepared and served the most delicious breakfast each morning. Their professional and charming manner made the Full House a great start for each day. They were very informative with events for us to take in. A porch party on Thursday night hosted by owner and proprietor Selena, was fantastic. Then on Friday night we had a catered meal from Hawg Wild. Met Tiffany on Saturday at check out and she is a wonderful addition to the staff. Shellie is now the executive inn keeper! Great choice.
I suggest you make reservations today!
We had a wonderful weekend! This is a great location convenient to Asheville, Hendersonville, breweries and restaurants. Breakfast was amazing. The grounds were beautiful. There was a lovely herb garden, hiking trails and rocking chairs. The room was beautiful and the staff thought of everything. We will be back!
I feel like I just rented a private villa in the mountains for the weekend. Wow! Sitting atop a picture perfect hill nestled about 30 mins from Asheville, NC and the Historic Biltmore Mansion, and 15 mins from a spectacular waterfall, this beautiful home is a perfect quiet retreat.
The home is perfectly appointed, plush, comfortable, and though they are celebrating 10 years it feels brand new. The communal dining room and bright sunny sitting room make wonderful retreats for small groups and conversation. Meanwhile the guest suites all have their own en suite baths with soaking tubs and plenty of light. The beds have goose down (or foam if you prefer) pillows, and the softest most incredible sheets and bedding I’ve ever slept in. I’m ordering my own set of Comphy Co sheets this week!
The rooms and the whole house are so private and quiet that even with other guests you feel like you’re in your own private home. And every detail has been thought of, from the fully stocked coffee service outside your room, to the complimentary midnight snack drawer. Downstairs there is a fridge with a variety of cold beverages as well.
And of course breakfast. Taken on the patio with fresh juice or coffee overlooking the gardens and distant mountains it’s a wonderful way to start your day. Kim, the house chef prepared special 3-course plated breakfasts each morning, with quiche or French toast, taking any dietary requests. And my new favorite vacation tradition, dessert at breakfast!
Innkeepers Selena and Shellie have created a stunning home and a perfect taste of southern charm and hospitality in the Blue Ridge Mountains. My first experience with a B&B has probably ruined me for all others. Truly a magical place!
