Asheville Babymoon Recommendations

So it wasn’t planned as a babymoon… but thanks to this ever-growing 21-week baby bump, that’s what it has turned into!

Wheat and I are heading for our longest vacation EVER in a couple of weeks to a cabin in Saluda, North Carolina, and I am positively giddy with excitement.  Neither of us have done the Biltmore, so we know we would like to block a day out for that… but any tips/tricks/recommendations re: the Biltmore estate would be much appreciated!

We also plan to spend a day or two exploring downtown Asheville or nearby Hendersonville, but before I start doing any real planning, I’d absolutely love to hear your favorite haunts!  I told Wheat if he humored me through the Biltmore (including afternoon tea possibly?!?) and yarn shops (and he doesn’t know it yet – well, now he does – but I want to go to a yoga class while I’m there, too), then I’d humor him through some brewery tours or something of the like that I can’t partake in.  Marriage is about compromise, right? ;)

So people, please: give me your best advice and recommendations for anything you’ve got on the Asheville area!  We want to relax and spend a good bit of down time at the cabin (I’m coming off of 3 weeks without a day off (and Christmas didn’t really count as days off)), but we are interested in everything there is to do in Asheville, Hendersonville, hiking in the area (go easy on me, it IS a babymoon after all!), Biltmore estate, including restaurants, yoga, knitting, breweries, bars, etc. etc. etc.  Ready, set, go!  And thank you!
