Can't recommend Sweet Biscuit highly enough

5 on January 21, 2015

Our night at the Sweet Biscuit Inn was a gift from my parents -- our first night away together with our toddler son in the care of his grandparents. Claudia and Christian are so warm and hospitable. They took care of all the details in making our stay just beautiful. We had a great evening downtown, just a few minutes' drive. The breakfast Claudia prepared was the best we've ever had (really!). We will highly recommend (and already have) the Sweet Biscuit to friends and family.


Top B&B option now in Asheville

5 on January 17, 2015

I can't say enough about how pleased we were with our stay at the Sweet Biscuit. Perfect room size, modern bathroom with European fixtures, and some of the best breakfast we've ever had in a B&B. Christian and Claudia provide the absolute best host experience you will find in any Asheville B&B. Without a doubt, we will be returning soon.


All Time Favorite!

4.8 on January 15, 2015

When planning a trip to the Biltmore at Christmas for our family of four, I hoped to find the perfect bed and breakfast for our stay. Sweet Biscuit Inn went beyond our expectations in every way! The guest house was a cozy little retreat, and our 16 year old daughter didn't think she would ever be able to leave. We couldn't wait to get back "home" each day after sightseeing, and we actually wanted to stay in at night because we were enjoying the guest house so much. We read, played games, and watched Christmas movies. We have never been made to feel more welcome at any bed and breakfast and the innkeepers, Claudia and Christian were so gracious and warm that it was hard to leave the conversation at breakfast to get started on our day. The fresh fruit, crepes, cinnamon biscuits, "egg in a basket", and German cookies were absolutely amazing. We have stayed in many great bed and breakfasts, but this one is my all time favorite. "European charm meets southern hospitality" perfectly describes Sweet Biscuit Inn, and our teenagers want to go back to Asheville just so we can stay there again!


Stay at the Sweet Biscuit Inn

Wonderful place in a quaint neighborhood. Innkeepers were friendly, informative and a joy to visit with. We will always stay with them whenever our travels take us to Asheville.


Location, value, hospitality and delicious breakfasts with a surprise!

4.4 on January 05, 2015

Have stayed here several times as we keep going back. Claudia and Christian are excellent hosts who go the extra step to insure the comfort of their guests. Convenient to downtown and the Biltmore entrance is less than a mile away as is the Biltmore Village shops and restaurants. Good value, comfortable and charming turn of the century house, fantastic breakfasts and wonderful hosts.


A mountain oasis!

5 on January 05, 2015

The property is lovely. Our room upstairs was large, bright with a very comfortable king bed. Food each morning was delicious and plentiful. They made accommodations for our 5 year old daughter and she enjoyed the reading library as well. Very convenient location to downtown and the Biltmore. We will definitely consider The Sweet Biscuit Inn next time our travels bring us to Asheville.


Sweet Biscuit Inn! Great Stay!

Spent a weekend in Asheville for our 27th wedding anniversary and tour The Biltmore Estate for Christmas. Decided to stay at the Sweet Biscuit Inn for the weekend. Christian and Claudia are great host. It was like we have known them for years. Very homey get away. The breakfast was outstanding. We will stay there again. Highly recommended!!


20th Anniversary Trip

5 on December 15, 2014

We visited Asheville for our 20th Anniversary and stayed at the Sweet Biscuit Inn. It was close to everything. The rooms were spacious and well equipped. The hosts were gracious and very friendly. The food was outstanding. The room prices were very reasonable compared to other Bed and Breakfasts nearby. We would definitely recommend the. Sweet Biscuit Inn.


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

4.4 on December 11, 2014

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!
