This was our fourth time staying at Oak Hill and every time has been consistently wonderful. Deb and Shell make it their mission to anticipate your every need and the house is impeccably maintained with gorgeous furnishings. It's an ideal place to relax and we look forward to many more stays.
Our visit to Grandview Lodge was a pleasure on two very rainy dismal days. The owner was kind to accommodate our stay after our recent cancellation of our trip several weeks ago. The breakfasts were outstanding! The rooms are clean and very comfy. The dogs were just as welcome as we were. Even though our hiking plans were sabotaged by the weather we spent a fun day in Asheville with our dogs instead. We would definitely book here again for another visit to hike here in the Smokies!
Our visit to the Orchard Inn was in the fall and we were fortunate to get to enjoy hospitality that exceeded our expectations in every way and enjoy some great fall views. Marc and Marianne really go out of their way to be accommodating.. Food was more than superb in choice as well as quality. We will want to return
We came up for the fourth year to spend a long weekend and enjoy the change of scenery from Florida. Once again Ken and Glenda were the perfect hosts along with the help from the dogs and of course Bonnie. Every year the trip seems to get better and better. Thank you so much for comfort, atmosphere, and friendship you provide. We are already looking forward to next year. Jeff and Heather Richardson
Since the reviews are high, we expected a great place and were not disappointed. Rooms are a little small, however you will struggle to find any detail that was neglected. EVERY thought you will have , you will discover it was already thought of and it is there! Quiet off street location, close to all. Social hour (5pm) was great, with homemade appetizers and wine. Book it and have a great time!
My wife and I, being in the business world, were looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of big hotels and resorts. The Carilina was just the answer. Susan and James accepted us into their home as family. Our room was clean and cozy. Morning breakfasts were delicious and wholesome. Evening hors d'oeuvres were made fresh by Susan and Sarah. Guests gathered in the parlor at 5:30 each evening for wine and these mouth watering treats prior to everyone going out for dinner. James was most informative as to what too see in Asheville and offered advice on the local restaurants. Most relaxing vacation we have ever had.
Innisfree is an oasis of luxury! A romantic hideaway with wonderful service in a beautiful setting. The cottage rooms are luxuriously appointed, with the right ouch of antiques plus a garden tub for two, bubblebath included. Breakfast in your room each morning is the finishing touch on a wonderful experience!
My husband and I wanted to head to the mountains in October for a little fall getaway and we found Oak Hill on Love Lane. You never know what you're going to get in person (but that's part of the fun!), but the house and the room and the innkeepers were just as lovely in person as they were online. The bed and breakfast is very close to downtown Waynesville and just a short drive to Asheville. Our room was gorgeous and the breakfast was delicious each morning and they even give you a little take away bag with muffins that you can enjoy later in the day. Highly recommend Oak Hill on Love Lane.
Highly recommend Carolina B & B to travelers wanting exceptional customer service and outstanding breakfasts. Clean, cozy rooms in a beautiful B & B in a wonderful neighborhood walking distance to d/t Asheville.
W O W ! The place is beautiful and Henry & Claire were fantastic hosts. We stayed in the Charles Dickens room and were totally pleased. Very well decorated, great double tub with bubbles provided and nice little veranda for sitting outside and enjoying your favorite drink. Plenty to do around there and some fabulous waterfalls between there and Asheville. Breakfast was served each morning and was very good with more than enought to fill you up. Thanks for a special time and we will be back!!
This place is wonderful! The lodge is very nice and views are amazing! Ken and Glenda were wonderful hosts. The breakfast each morning was wonderful as well. We would most definitely go back and stay at this cozy little place in the mountains. We came to Asheville to go to the Biltmore.
Our weekend stay at Wildberry Lodge was absolutely perfect! This BandB should be at the top of any visitor's list in the Ashville, NC area. Glenda and Ken are exceptional hosts, and we look forward to returning.
We were just passing through for one night but we really enjoyed our stay. The innkeepers were friendly and fun to talk to and our accommodations were fine. Would like to stay again when we are in the area for a longer time.
This was a WOW in every way possible. The common areas and bedrooms were elegantly and tastefully appointed with attention to every detail. The beds were very comfortable which is a big deal for us. Breakfast was incredible! Every morning started with an amazing 3 course meal. Larry and Nancy were gracious and fun loving hosts. We couldn't have been happier!
The rooms were nice although the bathroom was small, it was adequate. The beds were nice and solid. One could hear the next door neighbors although not clearly. When teh TV had a problem, it was fixed promptly. The breakfast was absolutely excellent and we did not have to search for lunch food during the day. The host was very gracious and helpful.
We had such a wonderful visit. From the moment we walked through the front door we felt very welcomed to be at the Applewood B&B. Nancy greeted us at the door with a huge smile. She explained everything we needed to know in detail. We stayed in the Winesap room for 2 nights. It was wonderful, from the scented soaps and lotion to the 2 person tub:) we had comfy robes to put in after a shower. The breakfasts are out of this world. Nancy really does a great job! Larry helps serve and entertain while waiting on the fabulous breakfast. Nancy and Larry are great host. We will be back:)
The inn is a beautiful turn of the century home with incredible woodwork. Its location is good, although you will have to drive to most places you might want to see. Our room only had a shower. The total bathroom area was about 6 square feet, about the same as on an airplane. It would be possible to sit on the toilet, brush your teeth, and wash your feet at the same time. The shower was tiny, it was impossible to bathe and stay inside it. Also water temps swung wildly from full-blast hot to ice cold and back, quickly and with no warning. Plus, the hairdryer was non-functional due to the intake being clogged with lint and hair. Yuck.Air conditioning was provided by a floor-standing portable unit. It was not capable of cooling the room more than a couple of degrees below the outside temperature. On the plus side, its roar masked the sounds of traffic outside.There was no maid or other cleanup service to speak of. A lady did drop off clean towels. Apparently "bed & breakfast" also means "we don't make your bed or empty the trash can."Regarding the breakfast part, it was OK. A single seating, no choices, everything was muffin tin-based (i.e. single servings cooked in muffin tins). For example, one morning was a cup of fruit, a small muffin, and a muffin-size portion of bread pudding topped by a single piece of bacon. The website makes several claims that are inaccurate or just aren't true - for example, "endless wine" - nope. According to the site manager, guests are limited to one glass each. When we told him what the web site says, he said he personally kept the website up and it did NOT say that. Very emphatically. Looking at the site today, it still says "endless wine..." in at least two places, "[saving] $6 per glass per person" as an example justifying the inn's high cost. It also touts their desserts; the first night there, the "desserts" were donut holes and a grocery store bearclaw.
Everything about our stay was superb. The owners, Shell and Deb, are there to make ones stay as comfortable and accommodating as possible, with a GREAT attitude. We enjoyed our stay so much just recently, that we have made reservations for next year, in May and October. Make your reservations now, and you will never regret it.
This B & B is so beautiful and welcoming! I loved everything about it! Nick and his staff could not have done a better job of taking good care of us! The food was spectacular! I look forward to our next visit!
We stayed 3 nights in Abbington while we visited Asheville for the first time. The house and grounds were gorgeous to the nth detail. The team of staff were all friendly, helpful and were very unobtrusive. We both loved the breakfasts--delicious and ample portions. Nick also took into account my gluten- and dairy-free dietary concerns. As a homebody, travelling is not always that pleasant, but Abbington was as cozy and comfortable home (actually, even more so).
We stayed at Abbington Green to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect place. From the first few steps that we took into this beautiful historic home, we knew that we were in for an extraordinary experience. We loved the warm and welcoming greeting that we received from Bradshaw, and we can't say enough about Nick's perfection as a host. He was attentive to our every need (special food requests, restaurant reservations, etc.), and we looked forward every day to his delicious breakfasts and afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres. His homemade croissants and dolmades were out of this world! Our room (the Kensington Garden) was absolutely lovely. The king bed was luxurious and comfortable, the room was spacious and beautifully decorated, and the staff cleaned the room every day while we were at breakfast so there was no disruption of our schedule. We also really appreciated all of the special touches like the anniversary card and chocolates that were in the room when we arrived and the cozy bathrobes and bathroom heater for chilly mornings. We were sorry to have to leave this idyllic place and return to reality, but we will always remember these magical few days!
