    Went here on a whim, and glad that we did. My family enjoyed touring this house more than the Biltmore! Aside from *not* being squeezed between velvet ropes with countless other tourists (unlike Biltmore), our guide really brought alive the history of the house. I've never even read anything by Thomas Woolfe, and I still found it very fascinating. Highly recommend it.

    Our guide was one of the best guides ever. His name I don't remember but he was a young brown haired guy. He spent a lot of time making My grandson very comfortable. He colored pictures with him and he gave him a scavenger hunt book...that kept his attention.

    The Wolfe house itself is interesting and well kept with many pieces from the Wolfe family. Much of the original decor and device remains in the house, which is pleasant temperature-wise year round. Our guide was knowledgeable and seemed greatly interested in the Wolfe family and their history. We enjoyed the museum, though I would have liked to learn more about the historical significance of the town and family. The shop was neat with Thomas Wolfe books and books about the area, time, and author.

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.
