About

The Sweet Biscuit Inn is an elegant seven-bedroom Inn and separate Carriage House located in Asheville, North Carolina's quiet wooded neighborhood of Kenilworth. Centrally located, this magnificent 1915 Colonial Revival home offers lodging with urban sophistication, for comfort and friendliness—Southern hospitality infused with European spirit. This B&B is located only 1 1/2 miles south of downtown Asheville's shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes. Only 1/2 mile north of the Biltmore Estate entrance, the Sweet Biscuit Inn is convenient to all of Asheville's attractions. Whether you are visiting Asheville for the diverse cultural charm, the opulence of the Biltmore Estate, or the spectacular mountains of Western North Carolina, you will love the inn's perfect location. Lodging at Sweet Biscuit Inn features 11-foot ceilings, tiger oak wood floors, a dramatic formal staircase, a stunning ceiling-high library and a relaxing front porch, ideal for watching the neighborhood walk by. The rooms (all with private full bath) are unusually spacious; it is your hosts' credo that guests, should have the space to breathe and expand. Mornings at the Sweet Biscuit are Chef Claudia's prime time: She puts all her culinary skills acquired over nine years of cooking in Provence into preparing sumptuous three-course gourmet breakfasts. Do not expect the ordinary, but always an authentic French course. When was the last time you had breakfast dessert?

Old Asheville charm and elegance

Beautiful combination of old Asheville charm and european elegance. Delicious gourmet breakfast and great location (residential area very close to down town Asheville).


Wonderful Little Get Away

4.0 on August 04, 2016

We had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before. This was a new experience all together, and it was WONDERFUL! The rooms were very well kept, and the 3 course breakfasts greatly surpassed my expectations. Christian and Claudia were very welcoming and informative. The B&B is about a 10 min drive from downtown Asheville, which I actually found to be very nice to not be right down town, yet it was still very accessible for dinners or the night life.


Wonderful people, great location.

The carriage house was great! The only thing to make it better might be a fan downstairs !


Breakfast heaven!

This is a one of a kind gem. Claudia and Christian are exceptional innkeepers. Their 3 course breakfast is genius! Each day their breakfast is fresh, healthy, and scrumptious. Our room was absolutely beautiful with every comfort including robes and the most luxurious bed ever. We hope to return soon to once again enjoy the hospitality, luxury, and serenity.


Lovely people

Best experience

5 on July 06, 2016

The facilities were clean and well appointed. Christian and Claudia were hospitable, and treated us as though we were their only guests. They went above and beyond our expectations including arranging a picnic for me to propose to my fiancé! The breakfast food was better than any restaurant. All ammentities were included and we're easily made available by asking. We will most definitely be back. 10 out of 10 for these guys!


Classy place, great food and service. Beautiful setting

The Sweet Biscuit Inn is clean, located in a beautiful setting. My family stayed in the carriage house. We enjoyed the grounds, outstanding food and peaceful setting. Christian and Claudia are attentive, detailed oriented and gracious innkeepers. The Sweet Biscuit is my first choice for my next visit to Asheville.


Awesome Place
