Our Anniversary Trip

This past weekend, Jason and I spent a couple of days in Asheville, NC, to celebrate our 6th anniversary. We couldn't stop talking the whole way home about how fun and relaxing this trip was for us. We decided to stay at a great little bed & breakfast we found the 2nd year we were married. We only stayed for one night that time and decided to make it an entire weekend trip this time. I am telling you, the Hill House is just the greatest place ever. The owners are so nice and friendly, and Terri is a great cook! She keeps a bottomless cookie jar in the parlor full of chocolate chip cookies, along with a special treat for the day (peanut butter bars and toffee bars during our stay). We had our breakfast each morning on the front porch. Saturday morning we had oatmeal raisin scones, watermelon, blackberries, strawberries, link sausage, and creme brulee french toast. It was amazing! Our second morning we had fritatas, ham, homemade blueberry muffins, cornbread with homemade blackberry jam, honeydew melon, grapes, and raspberries. This was the sweet little room we stayed in which had the most comfortable bed that we had to force ourselves out of each morning! We did a little shopping Friday night and ate at a great pizza place. We toured the Biltmore house and winery on Saturday, had lunch at this great little place on the grounds, did some more shopping and got a special treat at this place, came back and rested in our room, and then had a wonderful dinner here. Here are some pictures from our incredible weekend!!

We went Mon-Thurs before H and J left on Friday and stayed at the Hill House BB. It is absolutely fabulous! The house is just wonderful and the Terri's breakfasts are some of the best food we had in Asheville. Jeff and I highly recommend it also!

Isaac and I are also planning to visit Asheville for our anniversary, but haven't been able to narrow down the choices of BB's (there are A LOT of them in Asheville!). After reading this, though, I think we may give the Hill House a shot! Glad you guys had such a good time.
