Asheville: Best of in Southern Living





In the latest edition of Southern Living, Asheville was voted #5 for best places in the south to visit and live. Not bad for a city with less than 100k people! Visit the link to the announcement made just recently for 2017 in Southern Living magazine. While visiting Asheville is always fun, it's great to get out of the "big city" and spend some time in the beautiful, pristine mountains of western North Carolina.

Waynesville is just a short 25 minute drive west on I-40 from Asheville. With great restaurants, shops, art galleries and an award-winning theater, Waynesville has more than enough to keep you entertained. In addition, we are located between The Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains for some of the best outdoor activities know to mankind!

Treat yourselves to a stay at our unique bed and breakfast, located just one mile outside of Waynesville's quaint downtown district. Brookside Mountain Mist Inn is distinct in it's approach to B&B's. Our goal is to make our guests feel instantly welcomed and comfortable. Brookside is not your typical B&B in that we are a ranch-style building with many rustic touches among the most modern luxuries in every room. You'll find reclaimed wood and wormy chestnut as well as newly renovated bathrooms and mini-split heating and air conditioning units in each room of the Inn.

Come for the Asheville experience, but stay in the mountains of western North Carolina at Brookside Mountain Mist Inn Bed and Breakfast. Call us at 828-452-6880 to reserve your Smoky Mountain escape!

Cajun Cooking at Brookside



While visiting New Orleans recently, Dina and I took a Cajun and Creole cooking class. What a blast! We learned a lot about New Orleans and how Cajun and Creole cooking originated. In addition, we were given several recipes and learned how to properly prepare this delectable style of food.

The result, we are adding these tasty dishes to our Intimate Dinner for Two menu selection! Now our guests can feel as though they are visiting the French Quarter in New Orleans without ever leaving the state of North Carolina. When booking your next stay at Brookside Mountain Mist Inn Bed and Breakfast, be sure to ask about the newly expanded dinner menu. These dinners are exclusively available to our guests and include a four-course dinner, along with a bottle of wine from our fully stocked wine cellar, all for only $125 per couple.

Come for the scenery, stay for the Cajun cooking, Mon!

Newly Renovated Palms Room at Brookside


After nine years, we have finally done it. The Palms Guestroom is freshly renovated at Brookside Mountain Mist Inn Bed and Breakfast! The highlight of the new look is an accent wall with the look of reclaimed wood made of aromatic cedar. We have also extended this new look behind the fireplace, as well. The best part is that the room smells heavenly!

In addition to the accent walls, we repainted the walls a brighter color and added all new window treatments and comforter set. For those past guests stressing over the changes, we think you will be very pleased with the outcome. I know we are!

If you have plans of traveling into the western part of North Carolina, we want to be the place you lay your head down at night. Waynesville is located just 25 miles west of Asheville near The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cherokee, Gatlinburg and dozens of other fun places in the area. We are only a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. While you're here tour some waterfalls, hike a trail, do some horseback riding, gem mining, white-water rafting, zip lining, etc., etc., etc. Soooo much to do, soooo little time! Check out our 12-page travel guide for more ideas of fun things to do near our Inn.

Come for the scenery, stay for the newly renovated Palms Guestroom! Call us at 828-452-6880 to reserve The Palms room for your next Smoky Mountain adventure.
