We would like to have stayed longer in this beautiful Arts & Crafts style house that is tucked away in a neighborhood, but so close to everything! The India Room was really charming. We loved the furniture and decorations, especially that surprisingly comfortable wicker love seat! The windows were opened when we arrived on a hot August afternoon, but the window unit quickly remedied the summer heat and humidity. We didn't meet the owners until later that night, when we were relaxing beside the majestic fireplace in the living room. Vicki came in and chatted with us for a few minutes,and she was lovely and friendly. The room was very comfortable and clean, the bed was great, and the bathroom was complete with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in the shower. At breakfast time, we were greeted with a delicious bowl of fresh fruit, coffee and tea, and HOMEMADE scones! That would have been enough by itself, but it was followed by the main course of scrambled eggs with sauteed spinach, topped with goat cheese. Yum! And REAL bread with butter and homemade jam. Very nice, Vicki and Neeraj! Along with the leisurely breakfast, we engaged in conversation with another guest, a delightful lady whom we plan to keep in touch with. Overall this was a great place to stay, and we'll be back. It seemed a little pricey at first, but compared with hotel rooms in Asheville that are cookie-cutter style and lacking in charm, this place beats them hands down. And I haven't even mentioned the lush backyard with flowers and trees everywhere, making it green both inside and out. The only note I would make to all this is that as lovely as it is, there is a significant set of steps from the parking area. Not a problem for most people, including us, even though we're definitely not young people!
Joe and I booked 2 nights for our 30th anniversary and wound up staying 3. I can only say ditto for all of the kudos preceding and add the following. When deciding to stay the extra night I'd forgotten I'd promised to pick up a neighbor in Charleston SC at the airport the following morning. When I told Nick we would miss breakfast due to a 5:45 am departure he stopped me in my tracks. He would be in the kitchen at 5:30 am with hot coffee and breakfast to go. We were there and so was Nick. That, and he was immaculately dressed (unlike, moi) with miles of smiles and cautions about early morning mountain fog to look out for on the trip out of town. Enough said - best ever!
Everything about Abbington Green is absolutely lovely - the people, the room, the gardens, the service, the food - simply everything. Nick, Steve, and Carey went beyond expectations to ensure that our anniversary stay was private yet special. It was like visiting a family member who made certain everything was "just right" before you arrived. Nestled in a grand historic neighborhood, Abbington Green is close to downtown and there are great restaurants within walking distance as well. A very special place.
I found the Grandview Lodge and the wonderful innkeepers while looking for a last-minute place to stay for a reunion with friends as I live 2 hours away and those I knew who lived locally all had 'something' going on that would have resulted in my staying with them to have been an inconvenience. Boy am I thankful that so many people have busy lives and I had the privilege to stay at Grandview! Rates were very competitive, the location was still an easy drive from the Asheville area, the room was comfortable and impeccably clean, I had a delicious breakfast, and best of all Jeffrey and Breanna were first class hosts. I cannot say enough good things about the Grandview Lodge and would encourage you to stay here for a true touch of Southern hospitality instead of in a generic hotel with mediocre surroundings!
My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend visit at Albemarle Inn. The staff were very friendly and helpful with any questions or requests we had. The breakfasts were outstanding. A very substantial meal to start our day. Very quaint and comfortable room. Bed was so comfortable...
Look no further in your search for the best B&B in Asheville. We always stay in b&bs whether here n the states or abroad, and AG is at the top and sets the platinum standard. Everything great you read about the inn is absolutely true...food, house itself, location, etc. What sets it apart is the truly sophisticated Southern hospitality offered by everyone there. Nick's hospitality/marketing experience at Williams-Sonoma, his Greek heritage, love of food and entertaining, energy, and real love of people and what he's doing right now sets the tone for everyone at the inn. You really feel so comfortable and welcome....therefore, when we come up every few months for an event in Asheville, we always stay at AG even though we live only 30 minutes away.
To our surprise, and pleasure, this B&B was quite the find! The inn keepers make you feel right at home (friendly and comfortable- not over bearing), extremely helpful with all suggestions and spot-on with directions on how to get there. The rooms are spacious and impeccably clean. The outside patio is a little piece of heaven with their manicured grounds and heavenly view of the mountains. Give yourself a pampered treat and stay at this lovely inn!! My husband and I only stay at B&Bs, and this one was a favorite. Oops...can't forget Dina's yummy breakfasts...bring your appetite!
We wholeheartedly recommend the Carolina B & B for anyone visiting Asheville! The Carolina is located in a charming neighborhood, close to quaint local restaurants and their old downtown area. The service was excellent, we received great recommendations for dining and shopping from the staff. To top off our stay, the breakfasts were delicious, and the rooms are lovely and really nicely decorated!
Just stayed at Abbington Green for 3 days. Wow! These guys could teach a master class in how to run a B & B. There was no detail that wasn't addressed from the double luggage racks so that we would each have one, to the quiet of the in-room air conditioner, to the flat screen in the bathroom (which you think you'll never use, then wind up listening to in the morning while you take your shower). Then there's the food. They make these incredibly yummy and creative dishes for breakfast, that's served on the most beautiful place settings, which changes daily. When they found out that we prefer flavored creamer for our coffee, it magically appeared at our breakfast table. Then, just to take it up a notch, they have a social hour in the evening with equally delicious hors d'oeuvres (still dreaming about the mini chicken pot pies), and wine. I saw a beer make an appearance upon request. That's just the accommodating way that they roll. Okay, so you wonder about the inn itself. It's on the register of historic homes, but has every modern amenity. They've managed to make it luxurious and cozy at the same time, and have the most incredible artwork from area artists throughout the inn. Our room (Kew Garden) was beautifully appointed, and very spacious. They also have so many wonderful spaces to spend some quiet time, or have a chat with friends, old or new. Bottom line - This one's not even a question, do yourself a favor and make the reservation.
Jody, Dough, Leona, and Staff were so fantastic!!!! They treated us sooo well and made us feel sooo at home..... I can't thank them enough...... Jody even remembered that I had a sick dog and hoped he would be ok when I was leaving....This B&B is highly recommended !!!! ¿¿¿¿ Sue Buckley
Can't wait to come back. This is the greatest bed and breakfast we've stayed at. We were so happy, taken such great care of and will be back again and again. Breakfast was outstanding- Nick has completely found his niche.
Far exceeded our expectation. Beautiful house,grounds exceptionally well kept. Breakfast was a highlight of our days at the House. Gourmet food,service and attention to client's needs was outstanding. Would highly recommend to our friends and family and all others that want a wonderful stay in Waynesville. Bob and Rose Clager
We've been here twice and will definitely return again and again. We've stayed in two different rooms, both were beautiful and comfortable.The house is spacious inside with a parlor that is cozy in the winter. And it has an expansive porch for sitting outside in warm weather. Shawn, the innkeeper, is the perfect host, and will make you feel instantly at home. It's a very easy drive to Waynesville for shopping, dining and events.The town rivals other popular mountain destinations with several great restaurants, craft brewery and an excellent variety of shops, including Mast General, a Christmas shop, kitchen shop and even furniture from Bali. The Yellow House is convenient to the BRP and lots of hiking options. And you can get to Asheville in about 30 minutes.
Our stay was most enjoyable--the house itself, the food, and the friendly staff. Also, Shawn gave good advice on what to see, how to get there, etc. We have already recommended the house to others and plan to return, maybe in the fall.
Best B&B yet! The accommodations, setting, food and hospitality were the best. And they thought of all the little things that can make a difference in your stay. Carolyn provided us with great suggestions on sites in the area and we found her advice to be excellent. We visited lookout points on the Blue Ridge Parkway that provided views as good or better than what we saw in the Smokies...and without all the hundreds of other tourists. And Dina's breakfasts were outstanding and they accommodated our dietary needs. We would highly recommend this B&B and we certainly will visit again if we are ever in the area.
This place is magical! The love and passion put into everything, including the farm to table breakfasts, is in believable! We were visiting family, and Jeffrey was so warm and welcoming to all of the many family members that visited us at the Inn. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows out at the community camp fire! We plan to make this our vacation spot!
We had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before. This was a new experience all together, and it was WONDERFUL! The rooms were very well kept, and the 3 course breakfasts greatly surpassed my expectations. Christian and Claudia were very welcoming and informative. The B&B is about a 10 min drive from downtown Asheville, which I actually found to be very nice to not be right down town, yet it was still very accessible for dinners or the night life.
Hard to believe it was 5 years since our last visit, but Shawn and Connie greeted us like long lost relatives. The breakfasts are THE BEST of any B&B we have stayed at. Can't wait another 5 years to return - thanks for making our anniversary special.
We were thrilled when we pulled up to the house - the grounds were immaculately kept, the house was big, beautiful and it was filled with antiques! The (Blue) room as very nice and the bed was wonderful. After a great sleep, we were again in awe of the fine breakfast we enjoyed. Linda was very nice, showing us the house and yard. What a perfect stay. Planning to return soon. Nancy & Bill Wey
