Our Hotel Provides Easy Access to Downtown Asheville
Welcome to Asheville, where weird is normal! This amazing mountain city has a vibrant culture that revolves around food, history, outdoor adventure and much more. Come stay at the Country Inn & Suites and discover why Asheville became the number one place to visit in the U.S. for 2017, as ranked by Lonely Planet.
Asheville is home to more than 100 restaurants, most of which are less than two miles from our front door! From authentic Southern cuisine to Indian street food, downtown has it all. Local independent restaurants help create the perfect foodie paradise. We take our love of food to a whole new level, but don’t just take our word for it. Hop on our convenient hotel shuttle, and let us drop you off at Isa's French Bistro where you can enjoy a delicious meal in the heart of it all.
Culture is alive and well in our great city. We have several options for you no matter what your tastes are! Stretch your legs on the Urban Trail, a self-guided walking tour of downtown Asheville—you can start right when you step off our complimentary shuttle! Check out the local art scene at the Asheville Art Museum, or pop over to the Asheville Museum of Science to dig for fossils. Looking for a more retro experience? The Asheville Pinball Museum is your spot, with games ranging from the 1950s to now. Looking for a little more nostalgia? Try the Antique Car Museum where you’ll meet “Tin Lizzie,” a 1913 Model T.
Looking for outdoor fun? The Blue Ridge Parkway is less than 10 miles from the hotel! Once you get on Asheville’s favorite road, the possibilities are endless. Check out Bent Creek, a part of the Pisgah National Forest that has hikes for everyone, no matter the skill level. At the Western North Carolina Nature Center, you can watch otters play. Find some playtime yourself at Asheville Treetops Adventure Park located right behind the hotel. Be sure to bring the kids along, because this is America’s first zip-line adventure designed for kids under 10!
Relaxing is what Ashevillians do best (not including beer, of course). Float away from your troubles with a saltwater flotation at Still Point Wellness. Do your feet need some pampering after a city tour? Head over to Wake Foot Sanctuary and treat yourself to a luxurious foot soak. It’s impossible to feel stressed once you spend time in the Asheville Salt Cave, made of pure salt crystals and guaranteed to help you feel rebalanced.
Let us drop you off at Asheville’s shopping hub. Downtown is filled to the brim with locally made crafts and goodies. We know our crafts, which is why American Craft Week included us in their list of Top 10 Towns for Craft Lovers. Check out Asheville Bee Charmer for some locally made, one-of-a-kind honey.
