  • A wonderful museum. You get to tour his childhood home, depicted as Dixieland in Look Homeward Angel. It's 85 percent original contents.
  • A must see and experience this bit of history. More than a story about an author, his life journey including his family. His mother's story and business in itself was worth the tour. Please support their cause and save this historical home.

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.
