Late Fall of 2012, with the parking lot in the front to the left & Jr Pate road to the right.  That sugar maple is spectacular, and blooms in late fall.  Everything grows so fast here.  You'll notice much more robust landscaping when you pull up.  I do my best to keep it at bay :)

Clean, cozy, comfortable room in a very unique and beautiful home. All of our needs were met. Great location, just outside Asheville but a breeze to get to it. The host ? Simply the best and we’ve stayed in many AIRBNB’s... 100% recommended. Great experience.
