Breakfast.....Has anyone gone to an upscale but more Self Serve Breakfast venue?  If so, what's on the venue?   How do you run it?  Feeling like if I could take even a mid week break from gourmet and 3 courses it would feel like a gift.  Something staff could manage not requiring a person with cooking knowledge.  Any shares would be awesome.

We have a couple of horse trial events here in the summer where guests leave at about 5 am to go tend to their horses. I make a fruit salad, muffins and homemade granola the night before and tell them to help themselves to yogurt, juice, coffee, bread for toast and peanut butter and jelly. I even provide little to go containers, cups and utensils if they want to take it with them. It works out very well and they love it as most places around here don't provide anything that early.

When my daughter was little we made quite the duo singing Helen Reddy songs in the car.  Today I find myself singing one of her finest melodies, "No Way to Treat a Lady."

For those of you with Business listings on Trip Advisor can you please offer input as to what you plan to do about their latest edict that you sign their "Terms and Conditions" or risk your business listing?  Frankly, I am getting over their attitude.  Let me hear from you Trip Advisor Business Listing folks.  I need input.

I agreed to the terms because it brings us more business that the cost of the listing. ROI is good. However, if they are going to do what they threatened to do during our last negotiations, quadruple the cost of the listing, I will bargain really hard again or bail. It's all about return on investment. I get their monthly "estimated" revenue figures from the listing and it has nothing to do with reality. Google Analytics doesn't support it, not by half.

At Cumberland Falls Bed and Breakfast Inn
254 Cumberland Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801
My husband and I recently visited Cumberland B&B to get away from the hoopla of visiting inlaws and friends galore this holiday season. Immediately upon entry we were greeted with amazing sweets and a smile to match. From start to finish the details of this home are very well thought out and preserved. The owners Patti and Gary give you nothing but their best.... from a three course breakfast to sharing their love for Asheville. If I may add, Patti's sister Jane is quite a hoot. lol. Who knew breakfast with complete strangers could be so much fun. We definitely felt everyone's kind hearted nature made us feel right at home. I would without a doubt recommend a visit to Cumberland Falls. Its 10x better than what my review reveals. Cant wait to go back!!!!

Despite the claims of work done by this gentleman for folks of notoriety that was not our experience with this man. I feel that he is capable of fine work and that he selects who will be benefactors of this work. Regretfully we were not chosen We arrived when told our job was ready to pick up the headboard and table my sister left to be refinished. The furniture was full of dust and wood sanding materials. Unusual, so we wiped it off. We noted that the headboard had numerous areas where the staining had been applied, dripped and dried in the drip formation. When we called this to his attention, truly a simple enough matter to fix had he been so inclined, he became extremely angry. He mentioned that we were expecting perfection. We weren't but we were in expectation of properly applied staining appropriately brushed so as not to have dripping noted down the front of the headboard. I could have pulled that off myself. I didn't need a professional for that. At some point, he handed my husband some fine steel wool so that he could smooth down these drip areas in rather a "do it yourself" type operation. We also left a foyer table belonging to my Mom for refinishing. We told him that we did not know what kind of wood was under the paint nor why it had been painted rather than refinished. When he removed the paint from the top of the table, the wood had a distinctly greenish cast which is likely why someone painted the table initially. I think a call to the customer at that point might have resulted in good instructions in light of more available information. Likely, no one would choose to do anything but repaint the piece due to the very visible greenish cast to the wood. Frankly, the headboard, when he fixed the drips, was an average job. Not outstanding by any means but adequate. More problematic was the anger in his conversation with my sister to let her know for the 2nd time that the bed was ready for pick up. In this call made to her home he stated he would not any longer be willing to take a check from her or a credit card. She would need to pay in cash only. My sister is not a dead beat. She owns her own home & served her country for 20 years. She came prepared to pay for her work in cash when we went to pick up the bed the first time. It was only when we called to his attention to the very obvious drips at the top of the headboard and respectfully asked that the drip runs be fixed that he became punitive in his behavior towards my sister. I think that is poor form. Often you learn more in a business dealing in which one party or the other have a problem. Resolution is an art form. I deeply regret saying this but I would not take anything else to this gentleman for refinishing. If anything of a corrective nature needed to occur I would not wish to be the recipient of such treatment because I asked for it to be attended to.

The last car I purchased was in 1992. Clearly, I am NOT a car maven. That said, when my trusty car (Nissan Maxima) ended her days, I sought out this local Asheville dealer. I could not have made a better choice! I would not term myself the easiest of customers. We pulled into Fred Anderson Nissan of Asheville and met Bob Miles. Bob is a true gentleman. Funny, friendly and easy to talk with. His informative style coupled with his friendly, easy going manner facilitated easy communication. The first car we looked at was lovely but the interior color would have proved a challenging fit for me. Bob was not at all daunted by this~ nor was he pushy. He took time to listen and hear I was saying. He sought to locate a car which would meet my needs calling my husband (chief of finding me a fine car) when he'd found something he thought might work. My pre-owned vehicle is awesome! I could not be more pleased. Locating the car you actually wish to purchase is only half the event of driving one home. Enter, Chris Calvin as "decider of the deal." So much of real pain of people buying a car is that seemingly un-ending back and forth activity regarding the cost of the car. It is nerve wracking and can make the experience of car purchase seem terrible. This was not our experience at this dealership. We feel like our purchase price was very fair. No run around, no promises not kept. Fair, honest, forthright, communicative business completed with two very, very nice fellows doing all in their power to help. I am a business owner in Asheville and recognize people truly dedicated to doing the best job they can for their customers. This is something we all hope to find in a dealership. The internet is full of horror stories penned by people who feel they did not find that. I cannot leave out, Mr. Moore, the finance fellow, who has the" fastest computer fingers" in the south as he plows through the paperwork of purchase with ease. If you are looking for a car~ new or pre-owned, I feel confident in recommending these folks. They did a fantastic job of finding a car I am delighted with while creating a car buying experience that was extraordinary. I plan to keep this car for another 24 years but my there is not one doubt that when it's time for my husband to replace his vehicle~ we will head straight to Fred Anderson Nissan knowing we'll be exactly where we need to be.

Sometimes a piece of furniture is more than wood and fabric. It is one of the last possessions left to you of your Mom. So it was that my sister and I began research to select a good upholstery service to restore my Mom's chairs. Having lived in Asheville since 1999, I had more than a few fellow business owners to poll. Many recommended Pat Moss and Biltmore Upholstery. These chairs had such an emotional component attached to them- with my sister in tow, I made a site visit to Biltmore Upholstery. We met Pat Moss, explained the importance of these chairs, viewed some of her previous work & brought Mom's chairs to her store. They were a challenging design due to the segmented back construction which also further complicated the fabric match. The chairs were delivered today. The work is flawless, no corners cut and the results are all we hoped for and more. Pat is a perfectionist dedicated to excellence in her craft. That is a rare quality these days. I recommend her work without reservation. Not one doubt-You'll be pleased.

Went on an "escape Superbowl" evening out with my sister last evening. Steak Fajita's seemed very over cooked and not particularly fresh. My quesadilla was all right but not as good as previously enjoyed at this location. This evening...Food only fair. A big plus-Our waitress (a young woman with blond hair in braids-please forgive my not remembering her name) demonstrated a capability not often observed, complete courtesy coupled with competence, pitch perfect timing and excellence. We'll give it another shot some time soon.

I am unclear what the problem is but I have been shopping at The Fresh Market for a long time always enjoying this experience so much. Fine upscale grocery. Noted that there is some kind of completely abhorrent smell in the general proximity of the deli. Several women stopped in their tracks looking around at each other and no one had to even ask why we were doing that. One said, "What in the world is that horrible smell?" Another answered that she'd now noted it for many months. Whatever it is~to say it is not conducive to food shopping and needs to be addressed immediately is an understatement. It is evidently a known problem and if they need to close for a bit to attend it, that should do that. Competition is too acute in Asheville for this to continue. It's totally a turn off.

Asheville so needs a dining experience in a really pretty atmosphere. Buffalo Nickel delivers this so nicely down to good acoustics. Those of us who live here know what a rarity this is in this town so very appreciated here. The environs of this place are so special and warm. The servers are professional and attentive... anxious to please. We so wanted to enjoy this dining experience. Three of us dined there this evening. Each of us got different main courses ranging from short ribs to pasta. The pasta dish was the best of the lot. It is fresh and cooked to perfection....the duck addition we did not feel was a laudable pairing bringing nothing meaningful to the dish. The short ribs were dry but flavorful. Both of these dishes were visually lovely on presentation. The Chicken Pot Pie- It's presentation was lacking.....Plate holding bowl way too small, no garnish, no greens...a bowl...that's it. Crust was cakey, not appetizing. Inner workings of gravy, veggies, meat very average. Starters of animal fries and pierogi would have been the highlights of dinner had they been hot when they arrived at the table. A bit more attention to that happening might help. That said, this place is adorable and I hope they keep it together long enough to bring the food a bit closer to the mark.

We have employed Scott at Arborcare in Asheville both at our business as well as our personal residence. He has shown great care, safety, is clean in work habit and has honored his word regarding his pricing structure. We own a historic property business. Damage due to carelessness would prove problematic from a cost as well as structural perspective and we rely on Scott's demonstrated care and expertise. He is our tree professional and we have used his services since arriving in Asheville in 1999 always in complete confidence. Thank you Scott.
