Was so glad to have stayed at Sweet Biscuit - lives up to all its reviews - lovely historic neighborhood near the Biltmore, Biltmore Village & downtown. Opened window to sounds of hoot owl during the night, lovely claw foot tub to soak in after a long day of driving/walking. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful, especially the Rhubarb Clafouti - tangy with a bit of custardy sweet. When my travels bring me back to Asheville, I would definitely stay again. Thanks to the proprietors for such a lovely property - very well done!

Wonderful home, with excellent furnishings and superior service/food. The large front porch appointed with rockers and swing was surrounded by a quiet - shaded flower gardens and mature white oak trees. The library/music room was a delight as were the rooms and bathroom. The rooms and bed linens were spotless and shiny clean. Our host was extremely helpful in identifying local points of interest and customized breakfast upon noticing a breakfast leftover. In fact, the 3 course breakfasts were among the best I have ever eaten anywhere.

I have stayed in condos, rent homes, hotels...as we all have while on vacations. Most places seem really nice in pictures then you arrive to find that pictures are deceiving. I'm here to say that will not happen at Sweet Biscuit Inn! The room I had was wonderful. Clean and big and cozy. I was so pleased with the accommodations and it was way more affordable than other places I had checked out. I really felt at home. Christian and Claudia take to heart the experience that they can give each and every one of their guests, and its absolutely beautiful. The only bad news I have, which isn't bad at all, is no matter where you go in Asheville, or surrounding areas. You will not find a breakfast, lunch or dinner that will compare to Claudia's morning dining experience. The breakfasts at Sweet Biscuit Inn are beyond anything I've ever eaten. (sorry mom) Simply elegant and so diverse and flavorful. I looked forward to it every morning and was never let down. Christian and Claudia work side by side to make each day the best possible dining / staying experience you ever had. I cannot tell you how amazing they are, its something you need to treat yourself to and other establishments need to aspire to be. Thank you so much for your hospitality and graciousness. I had such a most wonderful stay...I did not want to leave. Laura

We stayed at the Sweet Biscuit Inn for three days and found it to be absolutely charming. Claudia and Christian are so warm and welcoming, you truly feel like you've dropped in on friends. The inn is lovely and furnished beautifully and thoughtfully. The location is perfect - close to just about anything you'd like to do, but tucked away in a quiet, shady nook. No traffic noise, just bird song and the sound of breezes through the trees. I'm not sure I can adequately describe the scrumptious three course breakfasts that greeted us each day. My mouth still waters thinking about dishes of plump raspberries topped with a dollop of homemade white chocolate mousse...freshly baked croissants...egg baskets...quiche...and oh my, the crepes! Every course was creative, fresh, and delicious. Claudia and Christian bend over backwards to accommodate any special diet requests and happily provide advice on local sights, restaurants, hiking locales, etc. Hospitality is their passion and it shows in everything they do. We are already checking our calendars to schedule another stay - until then we'll have sweet dreams about the Sweet Biscuit!

Absolutely the best Bed and Breakfast my wife and I have visited. Claudia and Christian were friendly and gracious hosts. Best. Breakfast. Ever. The house and room were spacious and delightful; every need was anticipated and met. Rates are very reasonable. If you visit Asheville, then stay at the Sweet Biscuit!

Our family stayed in the small cottage located behind the inn. It was perfect, and the hosts, Claudia and Christian, were both incredibly gracious and welcoming. The location is perfect if you want to be close to downtown and the Biltmore. We will definitely stay her on our next family trip to Asheville.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at The Sweet Biscuit Inn. The inn is in a very quiet neighborhood that is close to the Biltmore and downtown. Claudia and Christian were wonderful hosts and had lots of good suggestions for restaurants and good places to go. Claudia prepares a delicious three course breakfast! The large front porch is welcoming and a great gathering place. We would definitely come back!

My two year old daughter and I had a lovely stay at the Sweet Bisquit Inn. The little playground in the back yard was very entertaining and she enjoyed the delicious cookies offered upon out arrival. The room was very relaxing and well decorated. The common area was posh with many books to enjoy. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic and my picky toddler enjoyed the presentation of the food.
