All about Asheville’s Great Backyard, Part 1: Weaverville

Asheville’s secret is out – and has been for quite some time – it’s a beautiful mountain town with a personality to match. Now, don’t get us wrong, we love this southern siren of a city, but we also enjoy exploring just outside its reach. We’ve love Weaverville for all its charm and more relaxed, easy going community and way of life. 

Here, we’ll share a few of our local favorite spots with you that are easy day trips from Inn at Amaris Farms.  Let’s go explore! 

Dining:  Weaverville, NC: Experience Life at a Slower Place

About a 10-minute drive from the Inn at Amaris Farms, Weaverville, Asheville’s sister city, is somewhat reminiscent of the fictional TV town of Mayberry where Andy Griffith governed the town folk and everyone knew everyone. It’s a town filled with not only mountain charm, but many local artisans, independently-owned restaurants, galleries and shops

Award Winning Bakery: An award-winning bakery, the Well-Bred featuring owners from New York (like many of our current residents) now has four locations, but got its start right here in Weaverville. Check out one of their long-running signature items – the Mountain Eclair – a giant heap of chocolate goodness filled with a creamy filling that melts in your mouth.

The Glass Onion: Looking for that favorite local dining spot? Then check out The Glass Onion on Main St in downtown Weaverville. A local favorite dining spot serving a great selection of wine and Italian.

Main Street Grill: Casual lunch but hungry? Check out Main Street Grill for fresh, scrumptious salads, huge burgers and fish sandwiches in a little sweet spot with a little sweet back outside dining perch.

Maggie B’s: Wine, cheese, small plates and live music? We got you. Head over to Maggie’s Bs also on Main Street in downtown Weaverville. This is the perfect spot to hang out with your BFF, enjoy some local music with light bites.

Casual Dining with Music: If listening to local music, eating pizza and drinking a local brew is your jam, Blue Mountain Pizza in downtown (celebrating over 20 years) has live music six days a week. It’s a family-friendly spot that boasts a big front porch where you can “sit a spell.” They even make their own ice cream. 

Off the Beaten Path Dining: Stoney Knob Cafe, just on the outskirts of town off the beaten tourist path, is an icon among locals.  The atmosphere offers up an eclectic décor with a menu to match. From crab cakes and Greek plates to short ribs and lamb tacos, there’s pretty much something for everyone.  And, they take reservations too! 

Round of Golf with Beer: And, if you want to practice your golf swing – miniature golf that is – the Salt Face Brewing Company, located about half way between Asheville and Weaverville, is the ideal place to do it. So, grab a pint and pick your putter.  

Reems Creek Nursery: Stop and visit Reems Creek Nursery and pick up pots and flower baskets to take home! Reems Creek Nursery has been around since 1979 and has their own propagation farm in Reems Creek Valley. Their farm-raised plants are free of neonicotinoids pesticides. Visit their greenhouses, potting shed and more!
