April – Summer begins in the Mountains
You know it’s summer when The Biltmore House announces Biltmore Blooms begins April 1st. This annual event is a flowering splendor that runs until May 23rd. It begins with tulips and then changes over to poppies, snapdragons and pansies in May. To see the entire schedule of what is expected to bloom when, click here.
Then on April 6th the NC Arboretum hosts the Orchid Festival (click here for details).
But this is just the beginning. May brings more flowers and more exciting events for visitors and residents to enjoy Asheville, NC.

With all of these activities, vacation rental reservations will increase (we’re already seeing that happen). So, don’t delay and get your schedule together and book one of our fabulous homes.
If you’re planning on visiting as a group, we have an exclusive village of clustered short term vacation rentals. Homes are within walking distance to each other, allowing for the convenience of your group to stay together but not “together.” Each family or couple can have their own living and sleeping space, kitchen and baths and yet visit with other members of the group.
The village of vacation rentals is known as “Cedar Cliff Village” .
