We have a motto, here, at Applewood: “There’s absolutely nothing that wine & chocolate can’t solve!” That must be why both our commons room and music room boast crystal jars of yummy, cocoa delights. Go ahead… grab a handful!
In addition to your 3-course breakfast, we offer a wine & cheese hour (and a non-lactose snack of Salsa & chips or Hummus & Pita chips) from 5:00 to 6:00pm daily. This is one of my favorite times, as I’ve usually finished most of my day’s tasks (like baking fresh bread for the morning) and am waiting for those new guests to check-in. It is so rewarding to listen to the lively banter from our visitors enjoying a glass of red or white wine. I’m grateful for the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, to hear about their respective cultures and adventures, and this encourages others to meet those staying with us.
Wine and cheese hour is also the perfect time to unwind, before dinner. Guests often spend the time catching up with friends from breakfast and perusing our Applewood Restaurant Guide – a binder filled, quite literally, with almost every menu available in Asheville! This guide can acquaint you with Asheville’s diverse culinary landscape, and Larry and I can help you to make reservations at any local eateries you may wish to explore. Don’t worry if you are not a wine person, you can always BYOB, we always have soft drinks sitting out, I can make Lemonade or if it is the right time of the year, local cider.
