The Historic Beaufort House

A few weeks ago I traveled to Asheville, NC with friends to tour Biltmore. I’ll be sharing some pics taken in the gardens around Biltmore in a future post. For this Pink Saturday, I wanted to share The Beaufort House…the lovely, historic, bed and breakfast where we stayed while on our trip. If you find yourself traveling to Asheville, I highly recommend The Beaufort House.

Most of the pics you’ll see today were taken while I was staying there. I’ve also, pulled a few from their website. You may access The Beaufort House site by clicking HERE.

An evening view…from The Beaufort House website
See the room on the top floor at the end, the one with the arched window…that’s where I slept…it’s a huge room!

A daytime view…from The Beaufort House website

This is the view as you come up the driveway.

From the other side of the circular entrance…

It’s nice out here on the porch…from The Beaufort House website

The house has a gorgeous banister and newel post…notice the beautiful stained glass partway up the stairway. (from The Beaufort House website)

A close-up…

A little hide away, look out spot on the stairway. 🙂

Check out the renovated kitchen…isn’t it amazing?! I love the red cabinets and those huge windows. (from The Beaufort House website)

Breakfast was wonderful…we felt totally spoiled and made some new friends.

Lovely antiques all throughout the home…

The grounds around The Beaufort House are beautifully landscaped….

From their gardens…perfect for Pink Saturday! 🙂

Love the pergola!

Have you ever seen a swing built for two?

I love brick pathways in a garden.

Everywhere you looked, there was something to enjoy in the gardens.

Do you see Mr. Bee?

He was intent on his work.

A hungry bunny…

A perfect spot to nap after a day spent touring Biltmore

    This place looks amazing. My Catie and Bailey will be driving back through Ashville sometime today. She keeps saying Mom we need to take a road trip so you can see all of it..I think she's right, what a beautiful place. I'll recommend this to her when we go…Happy Pink Saturday.

    What a beautiful place!

  8. salmagundi says

    We had a pink/white/grey Victorian house once, and I loved it. Ours was of a much, much smaller scale, however. This one is lovely. Thanks for bringing back memories of all of the great Victorian houses I have lived in and visited. Sally

  9. Beautiful house!
    Beautiful grounds!
    Beautiful post!

  10. A Hint of Home says

    The home and grounds are beautiful! You're just a stone's throw from us when you're there. Isn't Biltmore "Grand"!!

  11. someplace in thyme says

    Good morning Susan, there just really are no words are there. Beautiful doesn't do it justice either, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  12. Sarah Bella's says

    Happy Pink Saturday. God bless you, Sarah

  13. Oh, what a lovely place! Thanks so much for sharing!

  14. Girl with the Curlz says

    What wonderful pictures. Happy Pink Saturday!!

  15. What a very lovely pink house! I love getting to see these wonderful places all across the country. Another benefit of blogging!

  16. How nice! We have friends who just moved to Ashville – I've always wanted to go to the Biltmore and now this would be another adventure!

    Thanks for sharing.

  17. What a beautiful home to stay in while at Ashville. I have been to Ashville dozens of times but have never seen this place. I bet you didn't want to leave there. I would not have. Can't wait to see your post of the Biltmore. Haven't been there in many years.


  18. Southerncook says

    Susan, I loved your Pink Saturday post. My husband and I have an anniversary coming up and we love the Asheville area. He just told me he wanted us to plan a trip and I think you have helped me decide where I would like to go. We have stayed in the Grove Park Inn before and we have been wanting to go back for another tour of the Bildmore. I think your suggestion of the lovely B&B is an excellent idea. It would certainly be cooler in Aug. than it is here in N FL.

    Enjoyed your post. I am off to see if I can get reservations.

  20. SmilingSally says

    The Biltmore is such a grand house. Thanks for taking me along for the tour. Happy Pink Saturday.

  21. I was sooooo born in the wrong place and time. As soon as I saw that house my heart did a little flip. It is perfect. Not to mention pink.

  22. Country Wings in Phoenix says

    Oh Susan, How fun. This home is so GRAND. I loved the stairwell and the kitchen with those huge windows. The dining room table was so elegantly set for breakfast. How devine. I loved the grounds outside, so many things to look at. I had to keep scrolling back and forth. I love this Pink Saturday post and thanks so much for sharing your visit with me. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit. Country Hugs, Sherry

  23. De-Lovely! **sigh**

  24. Connie from Big Bear Lake California says

    Looks like a beautiful B&B. Bet you had a wonderful time. Have a great weekend. Connie

  25. Enchanted Rose Studio says

    Happy PS, Susan! The Beaufort House is house and grounds are lovely. That stained glass window is exquisite! I love the little peek-a-boo window too. You know I was eyeballing the tile work in that lovely kitchen! ha! Best of all, the house is pink! haha!

    Have a lovely weekend!


  26. Thanks for sharing such a lovely home. I need to put it on my list of must visit places.

  27. What a wonderful post! Asheville is a beautiful part of the country, isn't it?

    Looks like a beautiful place to stay. I love the hall and the stained glass.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  28. I think I will be moving in…..thanks for sharing such beauty! Happy PS!

  30. Country Dreaming says

    Hi Susan—We were in Ashville a couple of years ago as we were traveling the Southeast.
    I wished we would have know about this beautiful place. We went to the Biltmore too and LOVED it–
    can't wait to see your pictures.

  31. Beautiful place! I've never been out that way, but if I ever do go there I'll definitely check the Beaufort out. I love, love, love old houses like that.

  32. Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend says

    Happy Saturday….What a beautiful place and your pictures are the BEST!!!

  33. Susan, you must have had a wonderful trip. We love The Biltmore House, and I was not familiar with the Beaufort Inn. I'm definitely going to show this to my husband.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  34. The Fajdich Times says

    How beautiful. Really liked the kitchen. Your pictures are amazing:)

  35. Asheville is such a lovely spot, and Beaufort House appears to be the perfect home away from home. Thanks for sharing another beautiful, inspiring post.

  36. I am definately putting this place on my list of places to visit. I love staying at B&B's and this one is so beautiful and so peaceful! Thnaks for sharing your pictures with us!

    Hi Susan,
    What a truly beautiful spot to spend some time! That pink house is simply gorgeous and I wouldn't want to leave. Your photos are just wonderful! Thanks for sharing and have a lovely Pink Saturday!


  38. Perfect Pink Saturday post. Looks like a great spot to relax. My last trip to the Biltmore was during the Christmas season. It was beautiful to see it decorated for the holidays, but I would like to go back when the gardens are in bloom.

  39. NicNacManiac says

  46. OMG, how GORGEOUS!!!The pathways, the pergola, the flowers it's all right out of a movie. How peacful your trip must have been.

    Thank you for your sweet comments on my Blog. I will be posting on Tuesday my Studio renovation and my Pillows that will be in Romantic Homes magazine, so if you get a chance come back for a visit!

    Have a great weekend,

  47. California Girl says

    What a beautiful place. I've been to the Biltmore but not the Beaufort House. Now, in N.C., they pronounce it "Bow-fort" as opposed to "Beuuu-fert" in S.C. Is that correct?

  48. ♥Mimi♥ says

    Another rainy and cloudy and dark weekend. I fear that summer is not coming to northern Michigan this year…sigh.

    With that in mind, Pink Saturday is a day that cheers me up and allows me to share a wider world than my gloomy portion.

    ♥Thank you so much for participating this week because it made my day just a little brighter♥

  49. "Blossom" says

    Yes, its beautiful here. We have spend a spring, summer and christmas time there. So beautiful.

  50. Such a beautiful house and grounds. Thanks so much for sharing.


  51. Oh My Goodness, that place is so beautiful AND so PINK*!!! (smile)
    Looks like a great place to go to relax, and who doesn't need that*!
    Let me look back at the pictures again and dream*! ((Hugs))

  52. Jennifer Froh says

    WOWZA! What a gorgeous Pink house… thanks for sharing! Happy Saturday!

  53. Oh my gosh, what a beautiful old home! I'm swooning. Happy Pink Saturday!

  54. Oh, my goodness, what a beautiful victorian home…I could totally enljoy living there. I could see myself curling up with a good book on that georgeous porch, it looks so inviting. I ready to go…happy PS.

  55. Rona's Home Page says

    How grand.

  56. Blondie's Journal says

    My brother and SIL recently came to visit, and somehow we all came to the conclusion that we wanted to visit Ashville. Well, you now have me sold on staying at the Beaufort!! I am especially in awe of the gardens…
