To The Garden The World
by Walt Whitman

To the garden, the world, anew ascending,
Potent mates, daughters, sons, preluding,
The love, the life of their bodies,
meaning and being,
Curious, here behold my resurrection,
after slumber;

The revolving cycles, in their wide sweep, have brought me again,
Amorous, mature—all beautiful to me
—all wondrous;
My limbs, and the quivering fire that ever plays through them, for reasons, most wondrous;

Existing, I peer and penetrate still,
Content with the present—content with the past,
By my side, or back of me, Eve following,
Or in front, and I following her just
the same.

Pamper yourself and your partner in this beautifully appointed suite in our Asheville, NC B&B where luxury, fine linens lush garden views and a lounging hot tub come together for the most romantic of getaways. The Walt Whitman Garden Spa Suite is the very essence of elegance, with its handsome king size mahogany bed, soothing blue French toile and imported Italian tile. All of it is accented by the original 1889 stonewalls at our luxury Asheville bed and breakfast.

Toast one another with champagne before slipping into the luxury spa for a soak in the two-person Jacuzzi. As you ease into the warm water, exotic orchids and flickering candles add to the intimacy, as does the glow of the nearby fireplace. Afterwards, refresh and reconnect in the two-person steam shower. Every comfort is assured, from complimentary chocolates to plush towels and luxurious robes. In colder months, radiant heat warms your feet as you pad across the imported tile, while central air cools in the summer.
