The Carriage House at The Sweet Biscuit Inn is very comfortably furnished and certainly met our needs for our two night stay in Asheville. The two bedrooms upstairs have easy access to the single bathroom which is on that level. The trundle bed downstairs is very comfortable but that space is not set apart from the living/dining area and so less private than a separate bedroom and not as convenient to the bathroom. There is a cozy living/sitting area inside and a patio sitting area outside. Breakfast is optional for those who stay in the Carriage House. We took advantage of this convenience one morning. The kitchen in the Carriage House would have allowed us to eat in as it has a refrigerator, stove, microwave and everything needed for the preparation of small meals. We chose to try several of the excellent restaurants in downtown Asheville, in the River Arts District and in the Biltmore Village. All of these areas are a few minutes drive from The Sweet Biscuit Inn. Communication with the innkeepers, Christian and Claudia, is easy and efficient when making reservations or seeking information about the surrounding area. This is a lovely, quiet accommodation in a vibrant and interesting city.

Had a wonderful visit at the Sweet Biscuit Inn. Claudia and Christian were very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful, no noise from other guests, and breakfast was fantastic! We also enjoyed wine and hors d'oeuvres on the front deck with other guests on Saturday night. Would definitely stay again next time we visit Asheville.

This was our first stay at a B&B and it was truly an amazing experience. Both Christian and Claudia were friendly and extremely welcoming. The 3-course breakfast exceeded any of the reviews that we read in our research into this B&B; truly amazing. The room was warm, welcoming,and very clean, making our stay very comfortable in the quiet neighborhood. Our names on the door to our room were an extremely nice touch. We also enjoyed all the suggestions on sights to see and places to go; this was extremely helpful and gave us points that helped us navigate the area with much greater ease. We would definitely recommend Sweet Biscuit Inn to anyone traveling to Asheville.

My husband and I recently stayed in room 4 for a weekend and absolutely loved it. The room and newly remodeled bathroom were so clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious! And the owners were super nice. We will definitely return to the Sweet Biscuit!

I had the pleasure of staying in the Cottage for a girls getaway weekend. Everything, from the food to the lodging, was fantastic. Christian and Claudia were fantastic hosts. I was also amazed at their ability to accommodate me and my friends with last minute Biltmore tickets. I hope to see them again soon! Donna in Danville, VA.
