Christopher O'Riley, Diana Wortham Theater In Asheville, NC

Christopher O'Riley

The Diana Wortham Theater located in Asheville, NC is presenting Christopher O'Riley on Saturday, March 3rd. He is an amazing musician who has expanded his repertoire of being a classical pianist to alternative rock. He has a special way to bridge pop and classical. O’Riley is well known for his eloquent and compelling musings on music and popular culture. He hosts a show on NPR called "From the Top",of which I listen to every Sunday at 2PM. He introduces the next generation of young artists and interacts with them to show that they are as diverse in their personal lives as they are in the world of music. O’Riley is not to be missed.

“Christopher O’Riley”
March 3rd at 8PM
Diana Wortham Theatre, Asheville.

With our Waynesville bed and breakfast  only 30 minutes from this musical evening you can come back and relax in front of your own fireplace with a glass of wine and enjoy the rest of the night with that special someone.

Wellness Spa, Mineral Springs, Hot Springs, NC

Looking for a wellness spa with mineral springs for a health/relaxation oriented getaway? Our Waynesville bed and breakfast is only 40 miles away from Hot Springs, NC where you can soak in 100-plus degree mineral water surrounded by scenic mountain views.

This charming little town is a day trip we often suggest to our guests. After our hearty breakfast,  we set up a wonderful itinerary for you. It starts off with walking through the town of Hot Springs, checking out the charming shops full of local art, jewelry and pottery. Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Pisgah National Forest and the French Broad River the stunning vistas will take your breath away. The Appalachian Trail goes right through town. On to the Hot Springs Resort and Spa  where we made an appointment for you to relax in the natural hot mineral waters. This will help to relieve all the stress and fatigue that your mind and body has endured over the past year. After your soak you can choose from a massage, salt glow, herbal body wrap, botanical mud wrap or an array of facials.  After all of that pampering head back to our Smoky Mountain bed and breakfast and have a late lunch or early dinner at one of our Waynesville NC restaurants.

The Natural Hot Mineral Springs were discovered in 1778 by a group of mountaineer white settlers. Artifacts found at these springs supported the claim that the Cherokee Indians used these springs and believed in their magical curative powers many years before they arrived.

Just one more reason why you need to visit "the" destination in the mountains, Waynesville, North Carolina.
