PumpkinJust in time, and in the interest of presenting our “locals” perspective on the best way to see the changing leaves and to  also enjoy the bounty of the area’s mountain farms and local artists, Engadine joins our fellow Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association members to present its fall promotion: The ABBA Fall Farms and Artisan Tour.

This is a self-driving tour of the Sandy Mush Community of Artists and Farms near Leicester, NC (just 20-minutes from Downtown Asheville).  It includes suggested visits to select farms and artist studios, a stop at an area winery, discounts on purchases at affiliated shops and a gourmet picnic lunch.  The tour package runs through November 15 and is being offered by all ABBA bed and breakfast inns.

If you are considering a stay at Engadine Inn and Cabins and if you have an interest in including the tour during to your getaway to Asheville, you can read more about it as one of the optional add-ons items available to you during the booking process when making a reservation online.  Or you can call us.  Either way, we will happy to have you visit with us and enjoy the tour along with the Asheville and Western North Carolina Fall Colors!

Christmas at Engadine

December 20th, 2011 by Honey Hill

The Holidays are a wonderful time at Honey Hill Inn and Cabins. Engadine, our 1885 Queen Anne Victorian mansion is decorated from top to bottom for Christmas! This year, we have two gorgeous trees adorning the first floor. The largest, a nine foot tree, is in our formal parlor. We also have a smaller tree in the dining room for guests to enjoy during breakfast.

The the cover of our 2011 Christmas cardfeatures our historic barn, which was built in the 1940s by Glenn Howell for his livestock. It stands where Captain John Keais Hoyt once had his Engadine Vineyards winery where he made his famous Engadine wine. Today, the barn is still in use, even though there are no farm animals. Our nearest neighbor, Mr. Kitty, occasionally checks in for the evening to dine on small critters.


This year we have two trees in the mansion. A 9 foot tree graces our formal parlor.

Guests can also enjoy a tree in our spacious dining room.


This year Christmas weekend promises to be busy at Honey Hill. Our cabins are fully booked, but there are still a couple of rooms left in the mansion. Gretchen and I will be working and enjoying every minute of our second Christmas at Honey Hill Inn and Cabins!
