Charming B&B

4.8 on January 05, 2014

My husband and I had the pleasure to stay at Honey hill Inn where the owners were gracious and the food delicious. Gretchen and Cheryl are fantastic and are both naturals at being Inn keepers. The gourmet breakfasts that Gretchen cooked each morning are to die for. If you want to be spoiled and you want to feel like you are at home, Honey hill is a place you want to stay while visiting Asheville.


Awesome Bed & Breakfast

My wife and I always stay at the Honey Hill when we are in the area. Gretchen & Cheryl are always so gracious and exceed all our expectations. Being a business owner; I am a tough sale. But these fine ladies have totally sold be on their product and their personal commitment to their customers. You can tell they really love their customers and enjoy what they are doing. My wife tells everybody about our stays. She talks more about the Bed & breakfast at the Honey Hill than she does the Biltmore. In the evenings we anticipate our return to see what home cook goodies will be waiting for us. Awesome!


Absolutely lovely...

We loved our stay in the cozy Balsam cabin with it's gorgeous views of the mountains. The location to Asheville was an easy 18 minutes so getting groceries at the co-op or going out for dinner was a breeze. The location also made it really easy to get to the Biltmore (which exceeded our expectations) and to the Blue Ridge Parkway...but we also enjoyed ample sit-around-the-cabin-being-lazy time! Most of all, we adored Cheryl and Gretchen! Their generous spirits and amazing breakfasts fed our hearts as well as our bellies! A true pleasure all around!


Such a lovely B&B!

5 on August 19, 2013

We were a little nervous about staying outside of Asheville but were very relieved when we got there. Honey Hill is more than we had hoped for. We were in the Howell Room and it was VERY spacious. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were so silky soft. We enjoyed the turn down service as well. We may opt for a different room next time because the bathroom only has a stand up shower but we knew that. After walking around the city my feet could have used a good hot bath! The grounds were beautiful and so were the views. The exterior paint needs a little sprucing up but once you walk inside, you forget about that fact. It's every bit as grand as any B&B that we have ever visited and the breakfast meals were delish! We enjoyed chatting with the other guests before we went out exploring. We hope to be back in the winter. Thanks again for your hospitality. Dwaine and Lisa Thompson


Awesome cabins

Cheryl and Gretchen, the B&B owners, could not have been more personable and accommodating. It was like we had known them for years, and truly made our experience remarkably like a home away from home. We stayed in the cabins, and didn't have breakfast, but were extremely pleased with the courtesy coffee, sugar, dish detergent, paper towels, and other commodities we didn't have to buy. We loved the privacy, property and views, and spaciousness of the cabin. We hope to go back soon
