Asheville by the Water


Want to go where the locals go, here in Asheville?  Check out The Bywater, quite literally a couple of minutes away from Applewood Manor Inn.

Upon first entering The Bywater, you might mistake it for your average bar; however, step out back, and you’ll discover over an acre of sprawling land right next to the French Broad River.  Locals often bring along their “best friends” (The Bywater is doggie-friendly) and simple, organic fare to prepare on the Bywater’s plentiful outdoor grills.

So, kick back with some of the best brew that Asheville has to offer and wave to passing kayakers and “tubers” along the river, as you take in a live band (often playing at The Bywater – check their calendar) and a slice of the laid-back locals’ scene.  Disclaimer:  This experience may lead to sleeping in, wearing flowers in your hair and trading in your former ambitions for a pair of birkenstocks!… lol.
