We just drove a bit of the Blue Ridge Parkway and stopped over in Asheville. I have to say the food at Papa's & Beer was excellent. Tasty, fresh and we loved all the salsa selections. Good choice!

Hey Lori, I'm so glad! You know Clayton and I love it there. Haha!

Hi Christine!

Am loving all of your amazing blog posts. Am headed to Asheville this weekend for the first time. Your posts have helped me tailor my itinerary to maximize my time there. Thanks so much.

Meanwhile, I have Asheville on my retirement-living short list and would like to spend some time there to get a feel for the area and community. I’m wondering if you could recommend a place to stay for a month or so. Someplace I could have as a base while I both work and explore. Could be a house, apartment, or residential hotel. As far as budget, I’m thinking $$$ or less for a month’s stay. And I don’t really have a time frame nailed down, so seasonal options, if available, would be appreciated. Finally, someplace downtown or nearby would be great. Does the Battery Park Book Exchange have a sister inn? I’m joking, but that will give you a sense of who I am.

Thank you!

Hi Jill,

Thank you so much for the kind message and welcome to Asheville. You are arriving just in time for the fall foliage.

Haha, I wish we could stay inside the Battery Park Book Exchange. That would be fantastic.

I'd look around North Asheville near UNC - Asheville. I have friends who just rented a home there, and I don't think they have as restrictive lease agreements. Some of that area (like Montford) is also somewhat walkable to downtown -- but still a tad father out.

The Residence Inn (Marriott) at Biltmore offers extended stay rooms and receives good reviews; we've been around there but have never stayed there. Tunnel Road has extended stay hotels, but that area is kind of wild (and strip mall-ish).

I'd check Airbnb, too. The city is restrictive on Airbnbs -- so they are usually on the outskirts of town -- but they do exist. We've also had friends in town that found cottages for rent around The NC Arboretum area (South Asheville).
