This is a most enjoyable venue for visiting Asheville. The accommodations are very comfortable, the breakfasts are superior (with desserts!) and the service excellent. The location is perfect for visits to both downtown Asheville (with its excellent restaurants and shops) and the Biltmore Estate as well as easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Arts District, and Asheville's excellent hospitals and medical centers. The owners, Claudia & Christian, are friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, interesting and very good company - their experience and knowledge of the inn-keeping business makes this truly the "Superb Biscuit Inn" in our book.

We stayed here for our first anniversary, our first trip to Asheville, and our first time staying at a bed & breakfast. Not knowing what to expect, I can say we could not have been happier. Claudia and Christian were very nice and treated us like we were family. In fact, our visit felt like we were staying with family, except with better food :). The house was beautiful and had a lot of character (something we do not really have in South Florida). Every morning we enjoyed sitting on the front porch with our coffee. We then had breakfast, which was absolutely delicious. Claudia is an amazing cook. The three-course breakfast was so good and filling, we rarely ate lunch. There were also freshly baked cookies set out everyday, which were also amazing. Christian was extremely pleasant and helpful, giving us ideas of what to do each day.Our room was also in excellent condition and very comforting. We had an amazing experience and would absolutely recommend staying here. Claudia and Christian, thank you again for all of your hospitality!!

We enjoyed our stay at the Sweet Biscuit Inn very much. The hosts, Christian and Claudia, were wonderful. And the breakfasts were out of this world! When in the Asheville, NC area, we will definitely stay there again. We loved our room (#4).

Was so glad to have stayed at Sweet Biscuit - lives up to all its reviews - lovely historic neighborhood near the Biltmore, Biltmore Village & downtown. Opened window to sounds of hoot owl during the night, lovely claw foot tub to soak in after a long day of driving/walking. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful, especially the Rhubarb Clafouti - tangy with a bit of custardy sweet. When my travels bring me back to Asheville, I would definitely stay again. Thanks to the proprietors for such a lovely property - very well done!
