"Keep close to nature's
heart...and break clear away, once in a while and climb
a mountain or spend a week in the woods..." John Muir
a wonderful day (or several) in gorgeous western North
Carolina during your stay at the Inn on Mill Creek Bed &
Breakfast near Black Mountain and Asheville. You'll find
plenty of time and space for relaxing at our B&B, which
is literally surrounded by North Carolina's Pisgah
National Forest. And you'll be able to get a great start
to the day with our breakfasts that are made from
scratch using fresh ingredients.
If you're looking for lodging near
the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, or the Lake
Lure/Chimney Rock State Park area, we're centrally
located between the three. Day trips to Biltmore and
Asheville, Mount Mitchell (the highest peak in the
eastern United States), Linville Falls, Catawba Falls,
Grandfather Mountain, Mt. Pisgah, the Blue Ridge
Parkway, and Chimney Rock State Park are easy using the
Inn on Mill Creek B&B as your homebase during your North
Carolina mountain getaway.
The eclectic small city of Asheville,
also known as Foodtopia and one of the best small cities
for art, is 20-25 minutes west. The small town of Black
Mountain, with its walkable downtown, charming shops and
local farm-friendly restaurants, is just 10 minutes to
the west, while the historic railroad town of Old Fort
is 15 minutes to the east.
Our area of Western North Carolina
attracts the nature lover, the romantic, the history
buff, and those who like to take the scenic route to a
relaxing and rejuvenating destination. With casual and
comfortable guest rooms, more than seven acres of elbow
room, and two rhododendron-filled miles of protected
forest land between our B&B and the rat race, you have
the easy task of taking your vacation at your own pace.
