We have stayed in many B and B's and this far exceeded any we have been to. The home is beautifully decorated with a large porch. A swing on the front porch was heavenly! We stayed in "the cottage" which was a separate building from the main house. Very private and cozy! We had plush terry cloth robes, a jacuzzi tub, our own kitchen, and a king bed. The evening reception was fabulous with wine from the Biltmore and appetizers that were better than area restaurants! We met many wonderful people at these receptions. The breakfasts were masterpieces! Henry and Sarah were awesome! Homemade cookies were always available throughout the day and we had an endless supply of water and soda in our frig. There is not one thing about this B and B that I can find any faults with! The hostess even packed us up breakfast to go on check out day as we had to leave very early, so wonderful!
While The Biltmore is known to be the destination in Asheville, my vote would be for Abbington Green. Nick, our Innkeeper and host, is a lovely, passionate person. One can feel how much he enjoys the Inn and his “calling”. The Inn is classic; crystal and china table settings, a wonderful “coursed” breakfast, and fresh flowers in our room. Another nice touch, our room was made up while we were enjoying breakfast. Nick’s suggestions (Chiesa and Nine Mile) for dinners in the neighborhood were perfect. I would also recommend the Gray Line trolley tour.
Gary and Patty have created a wonderful family-owned experience here! I could rave about the beautiful room, quaint atmosphere, and delicious food, but I think I was mostly impressed by their attention to detail in the little things. Here are some examples: 1. Fresh-baked treats in the entryway every afternoon. 2. Complimentary coffee, tea, and water available 24-7. 3. A beautiful saltwater fish tank to relax in front of. 4. Little bowls of chocolates placed throughout the house. 5. Personal recommendations to various restaurants and hiking trails. 6. Overall friendliness and warmth of every staff member. Wonderful experience and highly recommend!
“The beauty is in the details”…there could not be a more perfect description of our experience at Abbington Green! From the moment we checked in, we were provided the service and accommodations of a 5-star resort! We were greeted upon arrival by Nick, the Innkeeper, who provided us with a historical overview of the home, introduced us to the various amenities available during our stay and helped us to our room with our luggage. Our room was beautifully decorated and complete with modern amenities such as a hairdryer, iron, flat screen tv, motion sensors in the bathroom, etc. The bed offered two pillow options, soft or firm, depending on preferences and we slept better than we do at home! We enjoyed the extra outlets in our nightstand and the sound machine. We were amazed at how quiet the property was throughout the length of our visit. AG offered the quiet sanctuary we were looking for in our weekend away. In the mornings we were treated to a delicious, multi-course breakfast including fresh, local fruits. Breakfast was served in the dining room with exquisite table decorations and wonderful service from the AG Staff. During breakfast, we shared our stories and plans for the day and Nick visited with us after breakfast to see that everyone was set with directions, tickets and restaurant recommendations. The social hour was an opportunity to decompress, chat with guests and enjoy some appetizers and wine. We also loved the convenience of the snack & beverage station. The gardens were beautifully manicured and relaxing to walk through or gaze upon from the back porch. We even had an opportunity to enjoy some of his fresh herbs and grape tomatoes during social hour! The restaurant recommendations we received were fantastic! Asheville is truly a foodie’s paradise and the staff at AG pointed us in all the right directions! AG offers ample, on-site parking! This was a big plus compared to other Inns in the area.
We had a wonderful experience here. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful with recommendations for local activities and places to eat. Great location. The house was quite yet comfortable. Wine and appetizers were served nightly. The little chocolate treat at night with turn down was a nice touch. I thoroughly enjoyed the front porch with coffee in the mornings and wine at night. We will definitely stay here again!
Our selection of the Sweet Biscuit Inn was based on perceived value and reviews. Due to wedding obligations which drew us to Asheville, we did not plan to spend much time there. We were very pleased with our stay, highlighted by the comfortable room and the amazing breakfast. Cleanliness must be an obsession with Claudia and Christian because, not only was our room immaculate, but the kitchen had a rare 100% sanitation rating. We enjoyed our breakfast with the other guests at the communal table. It provided an opportunity to meet some interesting people and share information about activities and other Asheville area interests. The only criticism I can muster is the wifi was weak in our room, but it worked well enough for email and google. Our room had its own bath but only a tub, no shower. A wand was part of the plumbing, though, so rinsing was adequate. If that's important to you, select a different room. Ours, Room #2, is the only one without a shower. Give them a try. Maybe we'll see you there. We'll be back.
My adult children and I stayed at Sweet Biscuit Inn 9/15 - 9/18/16. It was one of the best accommodations I have ever had. It was my first B & B experience and I couldn't have asked for more. The Inn was charming, clean, comfortable, close to everything and Claudia was a wonderful host. She is full of knowledge about the area and can give you recommendations for anything you have a mind to do. You will not be disappointed!
A beautiful house, large lovely rooms and amazing gourmet breakfasts! Top this off with two of the best hosts, Darlene and Tony Blankenship, ensuring your comfort and you have the recipe for an absolutely wonderful vacation! Thank you for Making our stay in Waynesville perfect!
We had a lovely three-night stay at the Wildberry Lodge. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, which had stunning upscale amenities, a large deck, an expansive bathroom, a beautiful living/dining/kitchen area, and best of all, a stunning secluded view of the mountains thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. The cabin was incredible. Ken and Glenda are first-rate folks, and they've truly created a little slice of heaven up in the mountains with their property. A phenomenal stay.
My husband and I visited Carolina Bed and Breakfast for our 10 year wedding anniversary and all I can say is WOW! Sarah went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect! The breakfast was gourmet and delicious every morning. The homemade cookies available throughout the day were a tasty treat. The happy hour every afternoon was a fun way to chat with other patrons while sipping some wine and eating hors d'oeuvres. Our room was clean and comfortable with a delicious treat by our bed every evening. The owners have thought of everything with all of their special touches. We will definitely stay there again the next time we are in Asheville!
We just completed a multiday stay at the Lion and the Rose B&B and had a great time! The property is lovely and welcoming, the breakfasts incredible (Lisa was in the Pillsbury Bakeoff several years ago and has a great variety of super breakfast and a pantry of thoughtful stacks and water/soda). The yard is lovely and beautifully maintained with a lovely firepit area that just beckons for some chilly weather! Asheville never disappoints and this will be a great stop for our next visit as well!
Loved staying at the Carolina B&B - it is a charming place reflecting the owners worldwide travels and excellent taste - there is something of interest on every wall! The owners were away during our stay. Sarah was in charge and she and Henry could not have been nicer, more efficient or attentive to our needs. They accommodated our breakfast requests most graciously, let us know about local restaurants, hiking trails, sites of interest, etc, etc. I recommend it without hesitation and would definitely return next time I am in Asheville.
My wife and I spent five days, four nights at Abbington Green Bed and Breakfast. If many of the reviews seem to be repetitive, it’s because it’s all true. The historic house is beautiful, well maintained and beautifully furnished with interesting pieces. It’s located in a lovely residential neighborhood with two excellent (and reasonably priced) restaurants within walking distance. The en suite bedrooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped. The breakfasts prepared by owner Nick were wonderful, and he somehow incorporates each guest’s food predilections (which are revealed in the post-booking, pre-arrival, emailed questionnaire) into each morning’s fare. One additional feature we haven’t experienced in previous bed and breakfast stays, was the afternoon wine and hors d’oeuvres hour where guests have a chance to mingle and chat on the large and comfortable front porch. But the thing that really stands out is the warmth and hospitality of Nick and the staff (although it doesn't seem right to refer to them as “staff”, since by the end of our four day stay they were more like friends). Their recommendations for things to do and places to eat were spot on and they could not have been more accommodating with anything we needed. A great place to stay while visiting Asheville and surrounding area.
Joshua is an excellent host. We stayed in the Granny Smith room and it was well appointed, comfortable, and modern. Spending the evening on the balcony just outside our room was fantastic. The breakfast the next day was 3 courses but light and fresh. Tucked away but minutes from downtown Asheville...Tip: There are several nooks to hide away and read/write/relax..
Our stay at Abbington Green was everything we could have asked for! Nick and Carey were extremely accommodating, meeting us at our car when we pulled in to welcome us and help us with our luggage. The social happy hour food and drinks were amazing and the food was homemade! breakfast was out of this world too! Amaxing service, amazing food, you won't regret staying here. 5 stars!!
Great experience for our first B&B stay. We would recommend any couple to stay. You can do as little or as much as you wish. Very close to town & great eating places. Very friendly personal service.
Lovely Perfect Stay - Nick greeted us upon our arrival. He immediately made us feel relaxed and comfortable after a long drive, gave us a quick introduction to the main house and the amenities (beverages, cookies and sitting areas, including front and back porches with mountain breezes) then proceeded to show us our room in the carriage house. The website description on the room was spot on. It was comfortable quite secluded area that we appreciated. Every detail of this inn is well thought out and you can see how much this inn means to Nick. We were lucky enough to arrive for the Labor Day picnic and thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone. We can't say enough about the food. Both the picnic food and breakfast has to be the best meals we had during our visit to Asheville. We look forward to visiting again.
Where to start? Abbington Green is truly a wonderful experience from the moment you arrive and are greeted with a warm welcome. While staying at the Inn you are treated like family. The breakfast is amazing and different each day with fresh organic ingredients including 6 different juices. Then you are off for the day to explore the area with great tips and ideas from the staff. Social hour is special with great little treats home made with fresh local ingredients. Nick goes the extra mile with these. The rooms and nicely furnished and very comfortable, sitting on the big front porch with a good book is a wonderful way to end the day. We have had a few visits to the Inn and Nick, Steve and staff do not disappoint! We highly recommend Abbington Green and look froward to our next visit.
Had a fantastic stay it's a home from home inn keeper and staff the best attend to all your needs no questions asked food is just the best different every morning and all organic and local produce ,will not stay any where else in Asheville NC
We had a wonderful stay at the Black Walnut B&B. I booked a room last minute and it exceeded our expectations. The staff were warm and welcoming, the room was gorgeous, appetizers and drinks a delight, and breakfast exceptional. We visited two local restaurants (within 2 block walking distance) where the food was absolutely terrific. No getting into a car and driving somewhere for dinner after a long day of sightseeing or hiking. It was perfect.
We stayed here just for one night. We wished we had booked two. Breakfast was amazing. The lobby was fun and interesting and its location was nice. Close to everything but very quiet.....and dark, great for star gazing. We plan to come again someday
