The Macintosh Room at our historic Asheville Bed and Breakfast is located on the second floor of the Manor house. It was the sitting room for Captain Perry’s daughter. The updated en-suite bath has a two person pneumatic tub/shower combination (for a soothing bath salt soak after a long day viewing of the Biltmore Estate), dressing table with lighted makeup mirror and dimmer switches for the period lighting. An ornately carved Queen size Rice raised bed sits facing the gas log fireplace with a leather men’s club chair. From the private balcony with Adirondack furniture, you can enjoy the sunset and the back gardens. Of course it includes all other standard Applewood Manor Inn amenities.
Facts About the Macintosh Apple
The apple was discovered by a John McIntosh, a farmer in Ontario in the early 19th century, and he and his family became involved in propagating the variety. The McIntosh style is typified by attractive dark red or crimson colors brushed with a bright green. The amount of red or green on the skin of the McIntosh will vary depending on when it was harvested. The flavor is generally sweet but with refreshing acidity, and usually a hint of wine – often referred to as “vinous”.
