Asheville Bound

4.4 on June 15, 2014

Loved the B&B - sitting on the front porch in the rocking chairs drinking morning coffee and met some wonderful guests. It was a great introduction to life in Asheville.

Wonderful Wonderful Hill House

4.6 on April 22, 2014

Hill House located in Asheville NC is a quaint affordable scrumptious delight in every way! We enjoyed the location, staff and the full hot breakfasts each morning. Thank you!

Great stay in great location!

4.4 on March 26, 2014

This is a great house to stay in that puts you only a mile or so from downtown Ashville and less than a mile from UNC-Asheville (though i'd say i was less than amazed by that campus). The B&B, however, is a really neat older house with very nice, spacious rooms, great service (wine and appetizers put out in the evening, plenty of food/drink in the kitchen at all hours, and a wonderful home-cooked breakfast at 9am) and friendly staff. All in all it was a wonderful stay, and my wife and i wished we were there for more than just one night.

outstanding B&B

Great room and Wonderful staff

4.6 on October 06, 2013

We had a very pleasant stay in the Biltmore Room. It was tastefully decorated and the bed extremely comfortable. The wine and snacks in the evening were an unexpected treat. Ava was well acquainted with Ashville and made excellent recommendations based on our preferences. The walk to uptown was somewhat less than a mile, so we walked in for dinner. Our breakfast the next morning was delicious and all the guests seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. Overall it was an A+++ experience.

Great place to relax!

4.0 on July 15, 2013

We had a wonderful stay at Hill House over the 4th of July weekend. It was a truly relaxing experience. Our room was lovely and the food was unique and delicious. It is in a great location, but feels very secluded.

First Anniversary at Hill House in the Biltmore

5 on June 28, 2013

Asheville has always been one of my favorite places to visit and the Hill House B&B was the perfect getaway for us. It's so quiet and peaceful yet only moments away from the exciting downtown area of Asheville. It was our first-year anniversary and we decided to rent the Biltmore Suite and it exceeded our expectations. The pictures do not do it justice! The staff is incredibly friendly and the meals were above and beyond amazing! I would definitely recommend the Hill House B&B to anyone!

Perfect Weekend

We had a short weekend honeymoon in the Hideaway. The property could not have provided better setting for us - location, room, service. Mike and Kim
