Top 10 Special Mother’s Day Activities in Asheville
Mother's Day is just around the corner! Mom works hard for your family all year long, and you want to make her once-a-year day absolutely perfect. Instead of showering Mom this Mother's Day with chocolates and jewelry and gift cards, take her on a fabulous mountain get-away in the charming city of Asheville. Wine her, dine her, pamper her, and show her just how much you love her and appreciate everything that she does.
We have compiled the perfect list of delightful things for you to do so that you can give Mom an event-filled Mother's Day this year in the stunning Asheville mountains. It will be a weekend your entire family will never forget.
To give Mom the perfect Mother's Day, you need to start the day off right. And what does a tired, hard working mom like to wake up with in the morning? Why, coffee of course! While there aren’t many things that make coffee better, a beautiful view is one of the few things that does. And there is no more lovely view than that of the mountains around Asheville. So, take Mom out on the porch of one of our lovely homes and soak in the view, and the caffeine.
On Mother’s Day, Mom deserves to be treated. And, as every mother will tell you, not having to cook or clean up breakfast is a huge treat! So, take mom not only to brunch, but to Brunch at the Biltmore. After all, eating in a beautiful, luxurious environment makes any meal taste better. And the Biltmore has a fabulous menu for you.
You give mom a bouquet of flowers every Mother’s Day, why not give her an entire morning of flowers this year? Right now, the Biltmore is hosting its Festival of Flowers. If you would like to read more about the festival, you can check out the post we have already written about it here.
After a huge brunch at the Biltmore, and with more delectable food to come in the day, then a hike is just the thing. If you think you would enjoy a leisurely hike, then you don’t even need to leave the Biltmore estate. The 8,000 acre estate has roughly 22 miles of stunning trails to walk. If you and your family really want to induce a large appetite for later in the day, a more challenging hike that you can take is the Craggy Pinnacle Trail.
Is Mom an art enthusiast? Then take her to an art gallery this Mother’s Day! There is the Woolworth Walk, which is located in a historic building in downtown features about 170 local artists at a time. If Mom specifically loves glass work, then the Asheville Glass Center would be perfect! You can even book a workshop where Mom can create a piece of artwork for herself. If you want a more eclectic art experience, then a walk around the River Arts District would be perfect!
After a delightful morning of brunch, walks, flowers, and art, it is time to head back to the Biltmore for afternoon refreshments! In the Library Lounge, relax amidst opulent elegance while you recline with a steaming cup of fine tea and a plate of delicious delicacies, including the traditional scone that you must have to experience a proper afternoon Hight Tea.
After pampering Mom’s palate and helping her relax with an indulgent afternoon Hight Tea at the Biltmore, pamper her some more with a spa afternoon! You don’t have to leave the Biltmore to give Mom a spa day. Instead, just hop over to The Inn at the Biltmore and indulge in one of their luxurious spa treatments. If you would prefer to go somewhere besides the Biltmore, then the spa at the Omni Grove Park Inn is a fabulous option.
Of course, no Mother’s Day would be complete without presenting Mom with a bouquet of flowers, even if you have already enjoyed a festival of flowers. A florist option for you is The Enchanted Florist.
Every mom will tell you that getting to have someone else cook dinner for her and then clean up as well is an unspeakable delight. A lovely restaurant that offers nice yet relaxed dining, which makes it perfect for a family with children, is FIG Bistro. It features unique interpretations of New American and French cuisine.
After dinner, indulge Mom some more with a delightful dessert. Old Europe is a charming coffee shop that brings traditional European coffee and pastries to Asheville. If you don’t feel like lingering in the charming atmosphere, then just take some desserts to go and savor them in the comforts of your beautiful mountain home.
This Mother’s Day, give mom a day full of experiences that she will treasure forever, long after flowers have faded and jewelry has broken. Hurry and book your stay with us today! After all, Mom deserves the very best.
