As you may know, the Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast is located two miles inside Pisgah National Forest, between Black Mountain and Old Fort, North Carolina. This means we have beautiful dark skies at night, often clear and full of stars.
Near the southern end of the property, adjacent to Pisgah National Forest and just beyond our pond, lies a half acre of wetlands, or as they call it in the mountains, a high elevation bog.
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.
Wintertime is a great time to do birdwatching – it’s one of the activities you can do year-round here in Pisgah National Forest east of Asheville, North Carolina.
