The Destination
Asheville is out there, and not just because it's enshrined in the beautiful solitude of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Dubbed the "San Francisco of the East" and the "Paris of the South," this western North Carolina town boasts mind-blowing foliage and a delightfully anomalous New Age mindset. Yoga studios, vegan eateries, jazz jam sessions, and film screenings abound. The "Land of the Sky" thrives on its visitors, and greets them with street performances, local brews, and art galleries. Asheville is eminently walkable, so don't be surprised if your steps leave the sidewalk to join the footprints of the Appalachian Trail.

The Digs
Asheville's 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage is highly decorated, and its AAA Four Diamond award is just the beginning. Carved alabaster fixtures and wall sconces light the halls and antique German beer steins adorn the fireplace mantle in this restored Queen Anne-style lodging. Each of its ten rooms is named for a prominent poet—Frost, Dickinson, and Sandburg, to name a few—and features vaulted ceilings, elegant poster beds, and fresh local flowers. Your breakfast is just as ornate, with mushroom tarragon soufflé and cinnamon maple pecan rolls. Stroll through the garden fitted with Japanese maples and a koi pond; unwind with an in-room massage; or work up a sweat in the fitness room. Enjoy the sunset over downtown Asheville during the wine and hors d'oeuvres social hour, and let your creativity flow in North Carolina's sonnet-worthy Blue Ridge Mountains.

• Taste homemade Southern flavors at Tupelo Honey Cafe

  • "We could not have picked a more perfect place to stay...The room, food, grounds, and staff were exceptional. The Innkeepers, Frank and Ralph, were awesome. I just cannot say enough. We are already planning our next visit."
