Perfect Place To Surprise My Wife

5 on December 12, 2014

I planned a surprise weekend for my wife's birthday and Sweet Bicuit Inn was the best spot I could have selected. Christian and Claudia were the best hosts we've ever had (we've stayed in many B&Bs over the years). The food was delicious, the atmosphere was cozy, and the house was beautiful. We will no doubt be returning guests.


Our "Baby-Moon" in Asheville

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Sweet Biscuit Inn. The Inn is located minutes away from downtown and wonderful restaurants. Our room was cozy and our bathroom was so big! Being pregnant, a comfortable bed is a must, and our bed was wonderful. My favorite part of the trip was the amazing hospitality of Claudia and Christian. They were so friendly and went out of their way to make sure your stay was perfect. Breakfast was served at 8:30 every morning. The downside is having to wake up early on vacation, but the upside was it was delicious! Who can complain about a 3 course French/German inspired menu? Her homemade croissants and homemade jam was amazing! We had such a great weekend and definitely plan on returning!


Great Place

I do not usually take the time to write reviews, but we really enjoyed our stay. First, my wife and I are not big hotel people. We prefer to rent condos, or stay at B&B's. We rented the 2 bedroom guest cottage because it was more convenient for our daughter. She is an active 11 year old and we did not have to worry about disturbing other guest. Having a full kitchen was a bonus. The guest cottage was very well done and comfortable. We chose not to eat at Sweet Biscuit due to my wife's conference schedule. The location was also convenient to Biltmore and the downtown area. The owners provided a nice list of local restaurants with details about the food and drinks which we found helpful in making our decisions. Next time we return to Asheville, we will stay here again. Note: I am required to vote for all 5 categories even though I did not eat there. But I have heard good things about the food from other guest.


Restful retreat

We spent two nights in the carriage house at the Sweet Biscuit Inn. The cottage was cozy, well-appointed and very quiet. Christian and Claudia welcomed us on our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We really appreciated the resources they provided - lists of their favorite places to eat and things to do. We will definitely visit the SBI again!


Wonderful Quick Family Getaway

4.0 on November 26, 2014

First of all, Delicious Breakfast ...more on that in a moment! Our family of 3 stayed at the Sweet Biscuit Inn for 2 evenings over Veteran's Day weekend. It was a special treat for us and a wonderful decision! We stayed in room #3 and were thankful for both the large private entry and large bathroom. There was more than enough space for a small roll-away without us feeling cramped. I was also impressed with the time our hosts took to prepare for our stay. Upon arrival, Christian was ready to answer any questions we had about the area and our plans over the weekend. He also suggested a wonderful restaurant, Posana Cafe, with my dietary needs in mind. Claudia prepared an lovely three course breakfast throughout our stay and was diligent that I not feel left out. From gluten free crusts on the ham and egg baskets, to the most dainty cheese popovers, a flourless chocolate torte, warmed pears with fresh cranberries and a caramel drizzle instead of crepes; well, I wasn't missing crepes at all! Finally, the croissants. I've been telling my son how delicious "real" croissants are and have promised I'd find the right bakery for years. I learned that this was a new addition to the breakfast menu and made a special request. Imagine our surprise when we woke up to freshly baked croissants with breakfast! They were still warm from the oven, perfectly crusted with dozens of moist melt-in-your-mouth layers inside. The smell was so intoxicating, I could almost taste them. After breakfast we stayed at the table while my husband ate one after another and raved how they better than the croissants he had in Paris. Claudia even packed a few more for us to take home! If you're looking for a special treat for yourself, your friends, or your family, I would highly suggest staying at the Sweet Biscuit Inn. There's nothing you could ever want for during your stay. We felt like the Biltmores ourselves! All the best, Christian and Claudia, and we hope to visit again!


A Sweet Stay at the Biscuit!

4.4 on November 17, 2014

I booked the carriage house to treat my girlfriends for a 50th birthday celebration. It was the perfect place for us to relax and catch up - the carriage house was sparkling, well-appointed, and charming! Our hosts could have not been more attentive. I would definitely recommend a visit to the Sweet Biscuit Inn.


Definitely planning a return visit

4.8 on November 06, 2014

My husband and I have stayed in multiple B & B's all over the US over the past 25 years. We have never chosen to stay in the same B & B twice, just because we like to explore new settings, but we will definitely book the Sweet Biscuit Inn when we return to Asheville. The rooms were large, well-appointed, and comfortable; the breakfasts were gourmet feasts; and the hospitality provided by Inn owner/operators, Christian and Claudia, was exceptional--warm, inviting, and focused on assuring that every aspect of our stay was a wonderful experience.

Sensational Breakfast

4.2 on November 01, 2014

The best feature of this Bed and Breakfast was the delcious breakfast. It was multi course and meticulously prepared. We enjoyed sharing the breakfast table with other couples and families from around the country.


Charming & Elegant

5 on October 31, 2014

Claudia & Christian's hospitality is so gracious. Staying at Sweet Biscuit Inn is like staying with friends! The house is beautiful & accommodating! Claudia's 3 course "French Breakfast" each morning is such a special treat. She is the best chef! The dining room is so elegant & set to perfection each morning. We loved the interesting guests & I have already corresponded with some of them! My husband & I are going to make it our new tradition to stay there each year! We loved it & loved Claudia & Christian!


Hidden gem in a comfortable neighborhood.

4.8 on October 25, 2014

Quiet surroundings and a wonderful, spacious suite topped off with a daily gourmet breakfast. Owners very knowledgeable about the area and current events. We would have preferred a more intimate breakfast dining experience.
