    Stunning glass creations you will be in awe about and wonder how the guys behind the railing make it. The prices are high, however, you will understand why when you see the craftsmanship. There are smaller pieces available. We picked a bud vase and can't wait to take it to work with my roses in it. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff too. Check it out!!

    One of my favorite places for glass! Most days they are making their pieces while you're there which is fun to see. They make the most beautiful light fixtures, bowls and vases.

    Good beer selection for a glass blowing company. Live demonstrations are very informative and staff is friendly. The pieces of art are simply incredible. Must stop destination while in Asheville!

    Awesome open air style studio. Just happened by and two artisans were working on a piece. They talked through the process and were happy to answer questions. Beautiful and unique pieces and you can even get beer if you're so inclined. Awesome happenstance.

    Very nice studio . We went to listen to music from a local group, see glass blowing live and hear the artist talk about glass blowing. Very cool experience. Prices are expensive but it's local hand made products.

Where to stay in Asheville

To take advantage of the best Asheville has to offer without breaking the bank, stay at one of the city's small motels, many of which offer free breakfast buffets and plenty of secure parking. Asheville's historical district contains most of the city's bed and breakfasts, allowing you to stay within a short walk of downtown shopping, dining, and entertainment. The area also boasts numerous budget-friendly hostels, offering inexpensive private rooms for backpackers. For something completely different, rent an eco-friendly cabin in a wooded area just a short drive from the city.
