Author, John Steinbeck had an insignia on his books that read “Ad Astra per Alia Porci,” meaning “to the stars on the wings of a pig,” a snub to a professor that told him he would be published “when pigs fly.” At Ad Astra B&B, we love the humor and boundless poignancy of Steinbeck’s words that mean, “go for it, try, not everything is impossible.” We built our Blue Ridge Mountains B&B with that motto.
Studies show that the hardest working people rarely treat themselves to a vacation- why? Your getaway is possible. It’s one click away! You can do this.
