As 2015 is just hours away, I've been thinking of people that have helped us thrive in 2014, both personally and professionally, so I wanted to thank them as well as evangelize their services to our guests, as I think you may enjoy them the next time you're in Asheville.
1 - Longview Acupuncture - Billy Roberts can help you elevate pain and just de-stress with acupuncture and Tui Na treatments. Conveniently located in W. Asheville minutes from downtown, why not make an appointment to make your vacation that much better.
2 - C & Co - Since I discovered Christi's handmade skin products at C & Co in downtown Asheville, I've been buying them for my family and friends to spread the love. Christi makes all of her natural body products including body lotion, facial products and baby goodies in her shop, and she is enthusiastic and knowledgeable about what she makes. Stop by and you'll feel better and be hooked, I suspect.
3 - Twilight at the Grove Park Spa. It's a little known fact that you can get a spa pass valid weekdays from 5pm till closing for $60, with no treatment required. I get together with girl friends for a way to catch up and unwind as we soak in the various hot tubs under waterfalls and stars. Enjoy a bottle of wine if you like too, as well as swim in the water while listening to underground tunes, and to liven things up, jump in the cold plunge pool !
4 - Need a massage? Grounded Massage Therapy and Yoga provide exceptional massage treatments and will come to you as our guest in one of the Urban Nests. We love Mackenzie's massages and yoga instruction and can't say enough nice things about her.
5 - Thinking of moving to Asheville? I can't count how many guests have told us that they are staying with us to try and find a place to live so that they can move here - they come from all over the country. What better base to conduct your search than with one of our places where we are available to give you the local perspective? We have worked with two agents here in Asheville, both of which we highly recommend: Marie Morris of Beverly Hanks and Bill Palas of Appalachian. Both are hard working and know the ins and outs of Asheville real estate. Give them a call before you arrive in town to get on their schedules if you want to look at houses, businesses or land. We have other realtor suggestions if those two are booked.
