BARKWELL’S – The Dog Lovers’ Vacation Retreats – Asheville and Brevard
You and your best friend are free to run, swim and play at Barkwells, where more than 8 acres of fenced meadows and a pond give you lots of room to roam in a safe, secure environment.

You can run your owner all over our meadows and into the pond. You can run (better have them drive you) to Asheville, Hendersonville, Brevard, the Biltmore estate or the Blue Ridge Parkway in just 20 minutes. Tell your folks you want to vacation near Asheville, where you can drink in the mountain air, visit the Biltmore Estate, go hiking and see waterfalls in the Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State Forest, and watch them eat themselves silly at one of the pet-friendly, fabulous independent restaurants in the area.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
