Holiday Tour of Inns

The Hendersonville Historic Preservation Commission held a Holiday Tour of Inns as a fundraiser for their preservation efforts.  Seven local bed and breakfast Inns participated with wonderful Christmas decorations.  This was the first time I have been inside many of these wonderful homes, and DH thoughtfully recharged the camera battery before we went so I could share some of the beauty and decorating ideas.

This is the Elizabeth Leigh Inn, a wonderful Victorian home with a wrap around veranda.  It was built in 1893, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The front door welcomes holiday guests.

The wood staircase was draped with lights, garland and red bows.

My mother-in-law could live in the purple room, with the fireplace decked out in purple too.

Greenery, red wine glasses and Red Castle china create a holiday sideboard.

Even on a December day, the veranda is inviting.

Next is the Pinebrook Manor Inn, a little farther out of town with more land and garden area.

A sunny yellow main living room has Santa on display with a lovely garlanded fireplace. Cherubs trumpet over a crackling fire.

Back on a sunporch, a little village nestled into the greenery. Wouldn’t you like to shop here?

A Santa collection graces the corner of the breakfast room with another decorated tree.

There was a beautiful tablescape on the formal dining table, with Old Rose china on gold chargers.

The stair railings were draped in greenery garland with red bows and cardinals.

In the front room was a lovely tree with a red and gold ornaments, bows, angels and Santa figures.  All the front windows held electric candles surrounded with greenery and red bows.

There was just too much to show all in one day, so will continue tomorrow. I hope you are enjoying all the decorating and tablescape ideas!

    Rosemary B here:
    Thank you SO MUCH for sharing. These two places are really delightful and nicely decorated.
    This has been some 2 years for me, I am caring for my parents (91) and yesterday we called EMS and got mom into the hospital
    I think after all of the testing and such, she might have a virus. It was good to get her in a bed on a nursing floor and
    we shall see how she is doing today.
    I think both of these Inns are lovely. I need to go there…. no no, I tell my husband I need to go to sewing jail.
    Taking care of my parents is a joy, but I can’t remember what my life was before. — dementia perhaps
