I was looking for a room with a fireplace, and jetted tub. Both features were great! The bed was not very comfortable, though. I think the mattress needs an updating. Everything was very clean, Nancy was awesome, the breakfast was outstanding! The yard was nice, bigger than most houses surrounding it. The location was great, quick to get downtown, or to the Biltmore. If we return to Asheville, we will definitely stay here again!
MUCH better than expected...web site photos do no justice to how gorgeous the place really is. My husband called it a scene from a HALLMARK Christmas movie. Host and Hostess could not have been kinder or more accommodating...can't wait to go back! Dan & Dar
Had two different stays over a period of a week, therefore trying two different rooms. This was my first bed & breakfast experience. Unless you book a first floor room, there are stairs I'm very short, so needed a stool to get onto beds. They are provided. The bathrooms were tiny, but charming. The place has so much character, there's plenty to do or not do. Breakfast was I looked forward to each day. All the staff is relaxed and friendly!
This was a beautiful bed and breakfast with wonderful owners that treat you like family. The food was delicious and the attention to detail was wonderful. I am looking at the calendar for 2015 to see when we can go back.
We stayed in the cottage of Applewood Manor since we were traveling with a fur baby. The fact that it was pet friendly and one of the most affordable and best values for what you got, plus the excellent reviews, was our reason for choosing them. The cottage was charmingly decorated and had a hot tub. That was a pleasure after a long day of job searching and sightseeing. The 3-course breakfasts were delicious and there was something different each day. Nancy and Larry were very gracious and we enjoyed visiting with them and the other couples. There was wine, cheese and snack mix provided in the evenings. They treated our dog like one of us. We would recommend and would stay there again.
We visited Asheville for our 20th Anniversary and stayed at the Sweet Biscuit Inn. It was close to everything. The rooms were spacious and well equipped. The hosts were gracious and very friendly. The food was outstanding. The room prices were very reasonable compared to other Bed and Breakfasts nearby. We would definitely recommend the. Sweet Biscuit Inn.
What a great Bes and Breakfast! Doug and Jenny Bowman are delightful people who work hard to ensure their guests are comfortable and enjoying their stay! Their warm hospitality and awesome food dishes make this B&B worth experiencing! The location is perfect also. Can't wait to go back!
I planned a surprise weekend for my wife's birthday and Sweet Bicuit Inn was the best spot I could have selected. Christian and Claudia were the best hosts we've ever had (we've stayed in many B&Bs over the years). The food was delicious, the atmosphere was cozy, and the house was beautiful. We will no doubt be returning guests.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Sweet Biscuit Inn. The Inn is located minutes away from downtown and wonderful restaurants. Our room was cozy and our bathroom was so big! Being pregnant, a comfortable bed is a must, and our bed was wonderful. My favorite part of the trip was the amazing hospitality of Claudia and Christian. They were so friendly and went out of their way to make sure your stay was perfect. Breakfast was served at 8:30 every morning. The downside is having to wake up early on vacation, but the upside was it was delicious! Who can complain about a 3 course French/German inspired menu? Her homemade croissants and homemade jam was amazing! We had such a great weekend and definitely plan on returning!
I do not usually take the time to write reviews, but we really enjoyed our stay. First, my wife and I are not big hotel people. We prefer to rent condos, or stay at B&B's. We rented the 2 bedroom guest cottage because it was more convenient for our daughter. She is an active 11 year old and we did not have to worry about disturbing other guest. Having a full kitchen was a bonus. The guest cottage was very well done and comfortable. We chose not to eat at Sweet Biscuit due to my wife's conference schedule. The location was also convenient to Biltmore and the downtown area. The owners provided a nice list of local restaurants with details about the food and drinks which we found helpful in making our decisions. Next time we return to Asheville, we will stay here again. Note: I am required to vote for all 5 categories even though I did not eat there. But I have heard good things about the food from other guest.
We spent two nights in the carriage house at the Sweet Biscuit Inn. The cottage was cozy, well-appointed and very quiet. Christian and Claudia welcomed us on our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We really appreciated the resources they provided - lists of their favorite places to eat and things to do. We will definitely visit the SBI again!
The owner was friendly and welcoming. Although we arrived a bit earlier than check-in time, they quickly finished preparing the room for us. Breakfast was good and filling, nothing fancy but fresh eggs, bacon and fruit juices. The room was a disappointment. The heating vent was blowing cold air right onto our heads at night. The knob in the bathroom sink would come off. The bedroom and the bathroom in which we stayed definitely need upgrading as they are old. Perhaps the owner is planning to do this already, which would make the place good value for money.
The Grandview Lodge is a very cozy little place in what feels like the middle of nowwhere. We appreciated the silence and the fireplace in our room very much. The host was accomodating, cooked breakfast for us in the morning and gave us tips about what to do, eat and see in the nearby town.
My wife and I stayed here while we were driving through the southeast U.S. as part of our vacation. The hosts were an absolute joy and did everything they could to ensure it all went well. The scenery was lovely as well as we just made it before the trees shed their colorful fall regalia. Everything we wanted (Smoky Mountains, Biltmore, Blue Ridge Parkway, etc.) was just an hour away. Finally, as part of our trip, we got the gift certificate to the Chef's Table, which we highly recommend. In short, everything was great and we look forward to our next opportunity to visit our newest N.C. friends. Almost forgot--the breakfasts were great!
As my husband and I arrived in the afternoon on Thanksgiving Day the delicious aroma of ham, turkey and desserts filled the air. We were welcomed by our hosts and went quickly to our room, which we found in excellent condition. This was our third stay at the Waverly Inn and we have always found it to be home away from home. The owners could not be more welcoming and always giving suggestions or directions on events or places that might interest us. The breakfast that is served is so good and so much that you will not be hungry until dinner!! Then you can come back for the “Social Hour” for wine, snacks and conversation. If you miss this, there are always all kinds of sweets left out for you to enjoy with an assortment of teas, coffees and a refrigerator filled with soft drinks and bottled water. Don’t worry about gaining any weight – You are so close to downtown Hendersonville’s fantastic shops you will walk off any of all the goodies you eat! We had a ball and can’t wait to go back next year!
The Yellow House has been one of the best experiences for a weekend getaway. Our room was spotless!!!! Shawn and his staff went out of their way to make us feel special but also comfortable enough to make ourselves at home. The breakfast they serve is something from an upscale restaurant and if your tastes are not exactly what they are serving they will cook you something different. I can not wait to go back and visit!!!
We stayed in the Magnolia Suite and it was wonderful. The owners were very friendly and helpful with suggestions. The downstairs exercise area and game room was exceptional. The Garden Room where you eat breakfast was always warm and inviting and had a special treat available each night. It was a delightful area and we can't wait to visit again.
The Yellow House is a classic, pretty, Southern B and B, with great facilities and amenities and AMAZING customer service. Shawn and his team make you feel welcome at every point -- from the early emails and phone conversations, to check in, to daily yummy southern breakfasts, to wine and cheese at 5 pm, to check out. The rooms are spacious, clean, and nice, Mine had a fireplace and a tub with jets. And you will never go hungry with the myriad snacks in the main house. Stay here for sure. You will be glad you did!
My wife and I stopped through on a whim to see the ginger bread house competition at the Grove Park Inn. It was short notice during Thanksgiving weekend, so the prices were off the chart at most other establishments. We gave the Oak Hill B&B a try and were so glad we did! Shell and Deb were the most delightful hosts and the food she prepared was prepared with love! It was delicious and quite satisfying! They work as a team and are very attentive and helpful. We are looking forward to our return in the spring!
I have stayed at the Yellow House numerous times over the last five years because of the lovely accommodations, outstanding service, location, and charm of the place. There are few inns or bed & breakfasts I have enjoyed so much! Thank you for your gracious hospitality.
Have never had a more relaxed stay . Coffee , hot tea and and wood burning fireplace to greet you early in the morning and also at night in the great room and the breakfast ? Off the charts ! Bent Creek is on our permanent radar now !
We came to the Princess Anne for our honeymoon in Asheville, and we loved it. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, our room was beautiful and clean, and the food was delicious. Definitely a great experience and the first place we will stay when we return to Asheville. Its proximity to downtown Asheville was convenient and easy. We stayed one night at the resort down the road because everyone told us we had to be there, but once we checked in, we immediately wished we'd spent another night at Princess Anne.
Wildberry Lodge is one of those idyllic places that must be visited to appreciate. Tucked high on a mountainside outside Asheville, NC, the setting is breathtaking, the accommodations are luxurious, the hosts Glenda and Ken are gracious and Bonnie serves memorable breakfasts - all combining for a one-of-a-kind B&B experience.

Princess Anne Hotel provides a very attractive fusion of a vintage hotel and a charming bed and breakfast. The staff is small and very responsive and helpful as hosts. Breakfast offered a rotation of attractive choices for all dietary needs. Staff were also able to accommodate individual (Reasonable) requests. The afternoon reception was a perfect way to close a day of hiking and sightseeing. They hotel is placed in a peaceful and charming neighborhood. On top of all this parking is free and access to downtown Asheville and the Biltmore is both quick and easy. We hardly recommend you considering this hotel for your stay.
