This was a wonderful experience! The WOW of the werkend occured our last night. It was the first cool night of the fall season and we were out all day and returned late that evening. We all were chilled from the drop in temperature. When we entered the Carriage House the owner had come in and cut on the heat for us! How wonderful. That act of kindness is the reason I will refer them to anyone that is considering a visit to Asheville. .

We enjoyed a great stay at the Sweet Biscuit Inn. Christian and Claudia were very welcoming. Breakfast was incredible and we enjoyed visiting with the other guests. A wine social around a fire was also very enjoyable, talking with Christian and Claudia and other guests. We will stay there again.

Went to Asheville to see the Biltmore and would come back to stay again at the Sweet Biscuit B&B. Claudia's breakfast gives you something special to look forward to and Christian is the perfect host. Very nice people! Clean warm place where you will definitely feel comfortable. Everything was better than expected. Christian and Claudia really know what they are doing. Wonderful place to stay.

My wife and I stayed three nights at Sweet Biscuit Inn on our 50th wedding anniversary trip to Asheville and Biltmore Estate. We stayed in room #6 (king bed and walk in shower). This B&B is a delightfully sweet place to stay. It's vastly more homey than a hotel and competively priced. Christian and Claudia are wonderful and charming hosts. Upon arrival, we found a floral arrangement in our room as a gift in recognition of our special anniversary. The substantial three-course breakfasts, served in a group seating for all guests at once, were superbly prepared, served, and filling; and had a European and epicurian flare. Before breakfast we mingled with other guests on the porch and again in the evening. Our room was tidy, decoratively and comfortably furnished, and the bed and pillows were like sleeping on a cloud. The B&B is conveniently located between downtown Asheville and the entrance to Biltmore Estate. We have no hesitation highly recommending Sweet Biscuit Inn.

Claudia & Christian were outstanding hosts. Well done renovation. You will not need lunch after the delicious breakfasts. Very quiet neighborhood and convenient drive to downtown and Biltmore area.

We recently stayed here for our vacation and our decision could not be any better. The rooms were spacious and comfortable but kept up with the time period of the home. The best thing about this bed and breakfast was the breakfast. Claudia was amazing and all I can say is you will not need to eat lunch. If traveling to Asheville there is no need to decide on where to stay...The Sweet Biscuit Inn!
