The Sweet Biscuit Inn was a perfect place to stay during our 3-day visit to Asheville. The innkeepers, Christian and Claudia, were most friendly and accommodating. Their 3-course breakfasts were delicious! We will come back.

Our two trips this year to explore Asheville were spent at the Sweet Biscuit. We love everything about the place including Christian and Claudia who are wonderful hosts. This summer we made reservations for a 4 night visit and ended up staying for 6. Everyone told us to come back and visit the Biltmore when decorated for Christmas which we just did and again spent 4 nights at the Sweet Biscuit because we enjoyed it so much the first time around. It is a beautiful old house and Christian and Claudia obviously enjoy what they do as innkeepers. It is in a charming neighborhood and a great location to explore Asheville and the surrounding areas. The breakfasts are wonderful as are the people you typically meet when staying at a B&B. Oh... and save room for desert as breakfast finishes with a desert every morning.

Our stay at Sweet Biscuit Inn was fantastic. Christian and Claudia greeted us at the door and helped carry in our luggage. Freshly baked chocolate cookies were on the table in the wonderful grand entry. Our room was very comfortable and we appreciated the antiques and lovely decor. The best part of our stay was the gourmet three course breakfast each morning made by Claudia and served by Christian. Claudia's delights included a breakfast dessert. We would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast if you are visiting the Asheville area.

This is our second year in a row staying here. Christian and Claudia had only been there for 6 months before our visit last year. It is evident that in the year since we visited the last time, they have made many updates which have improved the appearance and beauty of the inn. The conversation and breakfast are amazing! And, they like children! We will definitely be back…this is our favorite B&B in Asheville!
