Spring at Barkwells

Signs of spring are all around – forsythia and daffodils start the riot of tulips, azaleas and irises. Bluebirds and purple martins are nesting and the fragrance of apple and peach blossoms is in the crisp morning air. You won’t want to miss The Biltmore Estate’s Festival of Flowers.

Who can resist the lure of the mountains in the springtime? It’s also time to start thinking about summer vacation plans. Please book early to get the dates and cabin you want!

Summer at Barkwells

Relive “the old days” as you fish in the stocked pond, paddle around with your dogs in the “swimmin’ hole”, enjoy a campfire under the stars, have an old fashioned picnic at our picnic area, complete with grill, picnic tables and a buffet table, or lounge in the hammock under the oaks next to the soothing sounds of McDowell Creek.

Festivals, camps and activities abound in Asheville and Hendersonville in the summer, so if you want to go and do, check out famous fun fare like LEAF, Bele Chere and the Apple Festival at Romantic Asheville and Historic Hendersonville.
