We first began staying with Christian and Claudia in their bed and breakfast in Provence. The accommodations, surroundings, hospitality, and delicious meals were remarkable and through our many visits, we became friends. When they chose to move to Asheville, North Carolina, we were delighted to come for a visit to their new bed and breakfast, Sweet Biscuit Inn. The changes they made to the inn are remarkable, enriching the bedrooms, bathrooms, and public spaces with their own special style of decorating. We took pleasure in discovering new details each day as we walked through the inn and the lovely gardens. Claudia's 3-course breakfasts are a gourmet's delight with her creative recipes steeped in French cooking. We stayed in the very large bedroom on the second floor on the front of the inn with large windows overlooking the gardens and a king-sized bed, which felt like sleeping in a beautifully relaxing tree house. The walls are a soft, spring green, which enhance the outdoor leafy effect from the large trees and create more relaxation. The bathroom is brand new with a beautiful shower. The location is excellent, because the inn is close to everything in the Asheville area. The inn is only a very few minutes from the Biltmore Estate and Biltmore Village, where there is a lot of shopping and restaurants, the Blue Ridge Parkway is just a few more minutes beyond the Biltmore area, downtown is another few minutes in the other direction. As well, the inn is on a quiet, lovely street in a very "leafy" area where one can walk and enjoy the gardens and interesting architecture in the neighborhood. We were not only delighted to spend time with Christian and Claudia, but rejoiced in the welcoming and comfortable atmosphere that they so naturally extend to their guests.

This is a lovely B & B, a great home-away-from-home. The owners are amazing and the breakfast is delicious. Highly recommend Sweet Biscuit Inn!

This was my first time ever staying at an official B&B, and it was terrific! I realized the morning before our stay that I had booked a room for the wrong week, and had to call to see if they had any rooms open that night. Thankfully they were flexible and made room for us in a room that night without any up-charge (just had to pay the difference between our previous payment and the rate for this room). The house itself is beautiful and very modern. I was turned off of other B&Bs because they felt like grandma's house. This home feels much more modern, yet still with the old Asheville charm. The bed was like a cloud and our bathroom was recently renovated to include all modern amenities. The three course breakfast in the morning was amazing and very filling. Our menu that day featured a fruit salad plate, an egg dish with a small salad, and a orange souffle. My only complaint would be due to the price, but that is more of me being cheap. This is a perfect place to spend a couple of days for a nice get-away! 11/10 will stay again.

My wife and I along with our twin 15 month old kids stayed at the Sweet Biscuit Inn for a weekend. It was wonderful. Christian and Claudia were both great hosts. They had the room stocked with a few toys and things to occupy our toddlers, and I couldn't have asked for more gracious hosts when it comes to our children. Anyone with kids knows that it can be stressful as you watch them get into everything, but Christian and Claudia welcomed them with open arms. Claudia's cooking is wonderful. Breakfast is always a three course meal. The first course is some sort of yogurt parfait or amazing raspberries with white chocolate mousse. The second course is a main dish such as a frittata (asparagus and salmon) or another egg dish. The third course was a chocolate pie or homemade crepes! It was very delightful, and the meals are served at a large dining room table where you can mingle with all of the other guests. We loved it. You can't go wrong with a visit there!

We stayed the Sweet Biscuit celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. It is very conveniently located a couple minutes from the Biltmore Garden entrance and downtown Asheville. Christian & Claudia were very gracious hosts. Claudia's breakfasts were amazing. The house is in a quite neighborhood and the perfect place to catch your breath and relax while on vacation. It is also very charming, fun place to stay.

We can't say enough about the breakfasts at this inn -- three courses, everything homemade, mostly organic ingredients. Claudia makes homemade croissants and crepes on site in the dining room, for goodness sake! Wonderful experience.
