The Cardinal Room at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast. Rich red walls and a plush green Oriental carpet offset a beautiful mahogany four poster Chippendale style queen size bed in this sunlit second floor roomThe Goldfinch Room of the Carolina Bed & Breakfast invites you to relax in comfort.  The fireplace boasts one of the original 1901 mantels and an ample and comfy wing chair sits beside it, beckoning you to put your feet up, read a book or enjoy a DVD from our library.  One of our larger and best appointed private bathrooms adjoins the room.
Paying homage to the owners’ years in Asia, the Robin’s Nest has a King size Rosewood Opium bed flanked by two Chinese lacquered bedside tables. A desk situated in the corner is flanked by a comfortable armchair. A small dressing room leads to a private bath with walk-in shower and a pedestal sink.Originally the library, this first floor guest room features a charming built-in bookcase which serves as a backdrop to the cherry wood Pencil Post queen size bed.  An original quilt made by a local artisan adds to the picture and is beautiful in its graceful simplicity.  Two comfortable chairs flank a small oak secretary desk to form a separate sitting area for your enjoyment. A three drawer oak dresser and small armoire complete the transformation from library to bedroom. The navy and yellow themed bedroom has a full private bath.
Named for the framed section of the original wall paper over the fireplace, this room harkens back to the past with a four poster mahogany rice bed, oriental carpet and original claw foot tub and shower in the private bath.   You will feel like royalty as you mount the steps to your pillow bedecked bed, while the heart-pine floors glow in the light from the original fireplace. The largest of our guest rooms, the Hummingbird is richly furnished with antiques and overlooks our quaint cottage and beautiful gardens in the rear of the house.   Hand-stenciled cream and plum walls echo the colors of the deep pile oriental carpet 
underfoot in this unpretentious room.  The four poster queen bed is flanked by two 
green shaded Chinese ginger jar lamps and an original artwork, “The Whirling 
Dervish” graces the wall.  The original coal fireplace has been retro-fitted with gas 
logs which leap into flame at the touch of a button. .  The Mockingbird Room is a blend of past and present with the best of both.
Nestled in the garden behind the main house is our charming cottage, the perfect place for a romantic getaway
 With its king-size bed, private bath with a two person whirlpool tub and shower, and faux fireplace this room is ideal for a romantic getaway.  The small kitchenette has a refrigerator stocked with sodas and bottled water.  It includes a microwave and hot plate as well as coffee-making facilities.
This lovely house was built in 1901 by Richard Sharp Smith, supervising architect of the Biltmore.  The spacious Arts & Craft style rooms showcase the unique, original art and antiques which the owners have collected in their voyages around the world.  Your visit will be enhanced by the small touches which make all the difference:  a plate of fresh cookies in your room, nibbles by the fireplace in the evening, and personalized service to help make your stay special.
