When You Come
by Maya Angelou

When you come to me, unbidden,
Beckoning me
To long-ago rooms,
Where memories lie.
Offering me, as to a child, an attic,
Gatherings of days too few.
Baubles of stolen kisses.
Trinkets of borrowed loves.
Trunks of secret words,
I cry.

Bed and Breakfast Asheville

The sleek, earth tone accented Maya Angelou Suite, located in the Carriage House at our luxury Asheville bed and breakfast, offers you a fresh and calming private retreat. With its wheat and dark green highlights and contemporary black furniture, this modern suite invites reading, relaxing and other soothing pursuits. Cuddle on the ebony, king-size canopy bed as you watch flames flicker in the stacked stone fireplace. Or sip some iced tea from a comfy sitting room loveseat. Then gaze at the 1889 WhiteGate Inn’s award-winning garden from your private perch on the suite’s rocking chair porch.

A writing desk tucked beside the fireplace inspires you to add this romantic Asheville getaway to your personal journal. Come and go freely through the suite’s private entrance, whether it’s a brisk walk to downtown Asheville, or a meandering stroll around the gardens.

At the end of the day, soak in the two-person Jacuzzi and refresh yourself with a separate shower and body sprays. This suite comes equipped with a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave along with other must-have modern amenities such as 40” HDLCD flat screen TV with DVD and wireless Internet. Your deluxe surroundings will have you singing this suite’s praises long after you leave. Lucky for you, you can always come back for another Romantic Asheville Vacation.
