We love gardens… and plants… and flowers. This is no secret if you have been to the Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast. It comes as no surprise, then, that one of Innkeeper/Engineer Dave’s 2022 projects was to build a new set of six planters, similar to the ones he built that line the outside of the dining solarium.
Enjoy photos from our recent snow day, taken January 17, 2022 and the following day. We got a total of 14 inches of snow, which made for a beautiful winter wonderland. It started Saturday night and snowed for almost 24 hours straight!
The Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast has a new outdoor sculpture to greet guests when they arrive… beautiful stained glass! A Black Mountain artist, Barbara Brinson, created the one-of-a-kind piece for us, called Sunrise in Pisgah, and we installed it in the garden area along the driveway. We’re so excited to share it with everyone!
The end of the year and beginning of the next always brings out the DIY-ers in your innkeepers as we prepare our list of projects that are going to enhance your stay at the Inn on Mill Creek. Let’s see if your favorite room or garden space is on the list!
Work continues on our Guest Favorites Garden, a small garden space where we highlight plants and flowers that are favorites of our guests.
We have a small herb garden here at the Inn on Mill Creek B&B, at the southern end of the Pool Garden, named for its former life as a swimming pool before it became a garden many years ago.
It’s Spring! Our favorite season has arrived and one of our favorite places, Biltmore Estate in Asheville, is blooming big. Biltmore has several gardens on an 8,000-acre property, so you might be wondering…when is the best time to see Biltmore’s blooms in all their glory, and where on the estate should I go? Let’s discuss.
The Black & White Garden (formerly just the White Garden) at the Inn on Mill Creek B&B is a small garden space — work in progress — where we’re growing plants with white or black blooms and/or foliage. Let’s take a look and see what’s blooming in June this year.
We’ve progressed quite a bit with the Guest Favorites Garden since we last updated you in August of 2014. As many of our blog readers know, we created a new garden space (Innkeeper Brigette just can’t stop), dedicated to plants/flowers that our guests love.
The Botanical Gardens at Asheville is one of those places that we consider to be a true gem in our area. It’s not as big or as well-known as, say, the gardens at Biltmore Estate or the North Carolina Arboretum. But it’s a wonderful spot for people who want to experience nature in a leisurely setting.
