So if you’re looking for a more curated list, we’ve chosen just a few of our personal favorite spots near the Inn for you to enjoy during your stay.

Sovereign Remedies – Fancy a cocktail and a snack? We love their local farm to table focus. Location: In the heart of downtown. From the inn, Sovereign Remedies is a short drive, or a long walk into downtown Asheville.
