Turn the page on another blank evening and pen your own story at Asheville's poetry-themed 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage.

Depart to a land of luxury and let the creativity flow with this Escape to North Carolina's sonnet-worthy Blue Ridge Mountains.

The inn's rooms are named for celebrated authors and complete with volumes of each scribe's writing to peruse. And indulge in the included extras—like a wine and hors d'oeuvres social hour each evening and complimentary beverages with freshly baked pastries available around the clock.

Beyond the inn, Asheville and the mountains beckon. "It's impossible to resist Asheville's untamed landscape: it's bound to draw you outdoors sooner or later, with the sounds of rushing mountain streams and the call of the Appalachian Trail," says Frommer's.

Once the snow starts to fall, go tubing at Wolf Ridge Ski Resort, or explore Biltmore—the Vanderbilt family's French Renaissance estate—just two miles from the inn. Or, simply walk to the novel boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants you'll find in historic downtown Asheville.

Return to your room to relax in the stately four-poster beds or peruse the greenhouse before settling in for a soothing in-room massage or spa treatment.

There's nothing to edit with a getaway like this, so sharpen your pencils: This Escape is just write.

  • "The WhiteGate Inn is a beautiful property situated in the ideal location for exploring the town and surrounding areas on foot... The grounds are lovely and the greenhouse is a wonder—so many orchid varieties."
