What makes our Waynesville bed and breakfast lodging different? At Brookside Mountain Mist Inn, you’ll find luxury accommodations combined with over-sized immaculate guest rooms, 3 course gourmet breakfasts, privacy, a quiet park-like setting, and a wonderfully convenient location near the Great Smoky Mountains, Asheville, Biltmore and plenty of things to do.

Enjoy our Blue Ridge Mountain views from our terrace. Browse our downtown Waynesville shops and galleries. Savor a variety of cuisine in many nearby restaurants. Play golf next door. Or take a drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway, just four miles away from our front door. Hike, bike, raft, kayak and fish with lofty mountains (including legendary Cold Mountain), waterfalls and scenic rivers.

After exploring the Smokey Mountains for the day, relax peacefully at our quiet oasis with five spacious, tastefully decorated rooms, each with private bath, fireplace, sitting area and cable TV. Each of our guestrooms is beautifully furnished and include the “little extras” to be expected at a luxury inn or hotel such as soft robes, hair dryers, iron and bath amenities. Awake to a three-course breakfast outside on the terrace (weather permitting) and be greeted by songbirds and playful squirrels near the lily pond and waterfall.

Our park-like setting includes several quiet areas where guests can relax and enjoy our cool mountain breezes, whether it’s from the double hammock by the brook, rocking chairs on the terrace or the cozy glider facing the sunset over the mountains. Inside, relax in a large living room by the fireplace or play one of the games from our rainy day closet. Help yourself to soft drinks, bottled water, snacks and fresh-baked afternoon pastries.

Just a mile away, you’ll find Main Street in downtown Waynesville, a shopper’s paradise with art galleries, antiques, clothing, jewelry and great food. Whether you’re looking for a souvenir or high-end furniture, or just window-shopping, the rewards of a stroll along the brick sidewalks are plentiful. Enjoy the quaint and relaxed atmosphere; take a break and put the bags down at one of several cafes. Head down the hill to Frog Level, the revitalized railroad district, for even more galleries and furniture shops.

Our five large guest rooms in our Waynesville B&B are all located on the ground floor. Amenities in all rooms include heater and a/c, wifi internet access, ceiling fans, alarm clocks, mini fridges, housekeeping, and much more.

We also have a library of books and magazines about local activities and sightseeing, plus novels to enjoy in a rocking chair or by a fire.

Asheville Soars as a Gay Travel Destination

Author: , October 30th, 2014

Biltmore Estate - from the Biltmore.com site

If you’ve been keeping up with the country’s most buzzed-about hipster destinations of late, you’ve probably heard of places like Austin, Brooklyn and Portland, Ore. Also mentioned in that mix is Asheville. This small mountain metropolis in western North Carolina has long been a relatively progressive island in one of the nation’s more socially conservative regions.

LGBT-owned businesses, art galleries and furniture studios, along with inviting Victorian and Arts and Crafts-style inns — and independently owned shops, clubs, theaters and cafes — have thrived here for decades. More recently, Asheville has cultivated an urbane, artisan-driven food and drink scene that’s particularly impressive for a city of about 85,000.

With a reasonable cost of living and a moderate climate, Asheville is becoming a popular place to relocate among not just hipsters but all sorts of professionals of all ages, many from larger and more crowded cities. Additionally, young college grads are moving in at a steady pace — something that seldom happened in Asheville before the city began to undergo a renaissance a couple of decades ago. This leafy, hilly community — two hours from Charlotte, 3.5 hours from Atlanta and 4.5 from Nashville — has become a top weekend destination, too, with a sizable gay following.
