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!

While researching my weekend trip to Asheville I came across The Sweet Biscuit on Trip Adviser and the reviews could not be ignored! I'd never seen somewhere with such wonderful reviews! And once we arrived for our stay I knew they were all spot on! Christian and Claudia were delightful and we were thoroughly relaxed during our time there and would absolutely return the next time we visit Asheville. We stayed in Room 3,the room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable and I loved the claw foot tub. They have coffee, tea and water available all day and night and we enjoyed our coffee on the front porch swing one afternoon. My favorite part was of course breakfast though! For me the highlights from both days were Claudia's black pepper biscuits, croissants and table-side crepes. Our first morning there we were joined by only one couples but the next morning they had to bring our two dining tables to accommodate all of the people, it was two very different atmospheres but we enjoyed both morning. One the second morning we even witnessed an engagement! Thank you Christian and Claudia for a wonderful stay....and sorry we took the keys with us when we left, we obviously had such a great time we wanted to be sure we could come back!

This was the first time my boyfriend and I have stayed at a bed and breakfast. It was also our first time in Asheville. We were excited to try something new. We were in for a big surprise. Upon our late arrival, Christian was there to greet us with his gracious presence. This was only followed the next morning and each thereafter with an amazing three course breakfast. The hosts were wonderful, we had a spacious comfortable and clean room, and could not have been happier. Thank you again to Christian and Claudia for the hospitality, we will definitely be back!

This is a must stay B&B. The owners are lovely and truly care. Their attention to details illustrates how much they enjoy running the B&B. The breakfast is wonderful and well worth it. For the food they provide you at breakfast I am truly shocked by the great prices they charge for such a charming place to stay. I will definitely be returning some day.

Second time we stayed at this venue. The first time we stayed I went into labor and wasn't able to enjoy the special three course breakfast. Since our son is now 5 months old, we decided to make a special trip back to introduce him to Claudia and Christian since they were such an important part of his welcome into this world. Like expected the stay was exceptional. They even accommodated our son with a pack and play. We will be going back again. The owners are so welcoming and the B&B has such a special place in our heart due to our delivery story that it feels like a family vacation home.

Christian and Claudia are such gracious hosts. From the moment I arrived until the morning I left, they both treated me like family and were helpful with recommendations from dining to hiking. Claudia's culinary skills are bar none! The rooms were immaculate and cozy. The location was ideal as it is between the Biltmore and downtown and only minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. I would HIGHLY recommend this B&B to anyone traveling to the Asheville area.
