And with the arrival of Spring come all of those activities we are typically denied during the colder months: hiking, fishing, geocaching (see the geocaching article and or video I was recently featured in on this subject), and biking. In addition to all the outdorsy things this time of the year encourages, there are also other interesting events and places to see that make escaping to Hendersonville a great way to spend a few days. The gardens at the Biltmore Estate are in full bloom. Lee Griffin at the Rockhouse Vineyards Winery has some new wines for you to taste, and The State Theater of North Carolina in Flat Rock begins it's production of Steel Magnolias with a fabulous cast from April 29-May 23.
No matter what your excuse (that's if you really need one), it's a perfect time to shrug off some of that Winter lethargy and get active again! Come on up and stay with us here at The Waverly Inn. We'll welcome you like family, give you a great nights rest, feed you a superbly prepared and cooked to your order breakfast, help you with suggestions for your day, and then be here at our evening Social Hour so you can share the adventures of your day!
Great town, lovely inn, wonderful food, beautiful area, and exceptional hospitality! All great reasons to come visit Western North Carolina.

Simply stated, the new movie released just this week entitled "Clash of the Titans" is a "Titanic" failure! With the warm sunny days of Spring here, don't waste your time of money on this film. Rather than bore you with all the problems I have with the film, let's just summarize by saying that if you have seen the trailers and/or advance clips advertising this film well, you've seen most of the critical moments already. If you want more details about why I didn't care for the film, post a comment and I will respond.
If you want to see an exceptional film and don't mind animation, then DO go see "How to Train Your Dragon" the new film from Dreamworks which has been out for about two weeks. And, I'd spend the extra money to see it in 3D too.
Now this movie has it all. A great story line, wonderful characters, beautiful imagery, and a very nice sound track. From start to finish I was entertained and left the theater with a smile on my face and brighter spirit. You can't help empathize with Hiccup, the teenage lead character. And, if you don't fall in love with Toothless, Hiccup's dragon, then you probably won't be reading any more of my reviews. Still, give it a go. I'm betting you'll have a great time.
So, in summary: Dragons YES, Titans NO!
Of course, both of these films are at theaters quite close to The Waverly Inn so after you've enjoyed a day of hiking, biking, zip-lining, or sightseeing, now you've got an evening activity to look forward to.
