Knk welcome back!
Do you want to stay RIGHT IN ASHEVILLE proper to park it and walk, or outside with glorious mountain views?
Black Mountain is another "very near" Asheville with gorgeous inns (we stay in Black Mountain, the prices are a wee lower, and the inns are fab. It is a small quaint town with shops and restaurants and not too far from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock) http://www.bedandbreakfast.com/black-mountain-north-carolina.html
as well as Hendersonville http://www.bedandbreakfast.com/hendersonville-north-carolina.html
Waynesville is not far and gorgeous with an Inn who stops by the forum from time to time Andon-Reid B&B
and Inn at Iris Meadows
. And innkeeper on this forum enjoys stating at Oak Hill on Love Lane ask for "Shell" if you call. http://www.oakhillonlovelane.com/
