Veteran’s Day 2013 – Showing Gratitude

Posted by: TOM WATSON

November 11, 2013, Veteran’s Day, was a special day here at Honey Hill. We were proud to participate in a program sponsored by the Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association honoring veterans and their spouses for their service to our country. The local program was part of the Professional Association of International Innkeepers (PAII) initiative: B&Bs for Vets – A Better Way to Stay.

We hosted two veterans, Army and Navy, and their spouses in our bed and breakfast. What made it even more special was knowing that one couple were victims of Hurricane Katrina and had been displaced as a result of the damage and devastation caused by that hurricane. We were so happy that they were able to take advantage of this program, as they have had such a difficult time in recent years.

Our veterans’ complimentary stay included afternoon snacks, 24/7 hot and cold beverages and a delicious three-course plated breakfast in our dining room. Here are some photos from that day.
