Adventures in Asheville: The Black Walnut Inn

Hive, we’ve now talked about all of the Lioness wedding plans. I’ve shared every pre-wedding event with you. I’ve told you about the details surrounding the moments before the big day, as well as the morning after. We have just one more topic to discuss before we pe into recaps: the honeymoon!

Mr. Lion and I had grand plans to travel abroad to Bavarian Europe for our honeymoon. Once we decided on our wedding budget (most of which we paid for ourselves), those plans quickly got pushed to our 1-year anniversary. Once we decided to buy a house, those plans quickly got pushed to our 2-year anniversary. But we are going to the Alps in 2013 and that’s final! Anyway, we opted for a brief, nearby, low-key honeymoon instead. We debated between Charleston, Asheville, and Savannah, then we finally decided on Asheville because that’s the one we pulled out of the hat through careful scientific deliberation.

We decided to stay at The Black Walnut Inn, a quaint yet comfortable bed and breakfast. Why did we choose this B&B? Well, the main reason was that it was pet-friendly.

Yep. Those are the organic doggie treats that came with our room. Lion Corgi was psyched!

It was also absolutely gorgeous.

The B&B had several suites in the main house, but our cottage was separate and secluded.

Best of all, the food was incredible. Every day, the owners served up their own creations for breakfast and for tea time. Tea time was actually much more of a wine and cheese event, which was much more my…cup of tea? (I apologize.)

Have any of you ever have a menu and a pet policy dictate your honeymoon travel plans?

    I have never been to Asheville but I may have to add it to my list. That was so loving of you to bring Lion Corgi on your honeymoon. Pickle puppy will be going no where near ours.
