A Wonderful Stay!

4.6 on November 29, 2015

I highly recommend the Bent Creek Lodge! We had a wonderful stay in November and are already planning our next visit there. The breakfasts were delicious and the view was lovely. It was nice to be near downtown Asheville and still enjoy nature.


Great Lodge near hiking and more!

The lodge is beautiful and we really enjoyed sitting on the back porch looking into nature in the beautiful gardens! Wonderful breakfast including gluten and dairy free friendly. Within a mile of the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway and other hiking areas! It didn't take us any longer than 20 minutes to get downtown to restaurants. New outlet mall is close by as well! Very professional owners and staff… Everyone was happy and in a great mood! We will return!


Wonderful in every way

My husband and I plus 2 family members stayed at Bent Creek Lodge for 3 days in May '15 and had the most wonderful time. Right from our arrival, Jodee and Doug did everything they could to make our stay as comfortable as possible, and I can't think of a single thing that could have been improved upon. The location is simply stunning, and with 2 decks outside to relax on there are plenty of opportunities to sit back and immerse yourself in the local scenery. The rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable, and most (if not all?) seemed to have doors that opened out onto either the upstairs or downstairs decks. We stayed in 2 rooms on the downstairs level, and in addition to the upstairs lounge (which had a pool table) there was also a downstairs lounge, so that you never felt that you were living on top of the other guests. The breakfasts were fantastic, and there are soft drinks and cookies etc provided every day for guests to help themselves to - the "brown sugar bars" in particular were a firm favourite with our group! Jodee was very helpful with advising on good hiking locations, and also went out of her way to provide a packed breakfast for us on the one day we had to leave very early before breakfast would usually be served. All in all, a wonderful stay, and I would highly recommend Bent Creek Lodge to anyone looking for a relaxing and beautiful holiday location in the Asheville area.


Bent Creek Lodge - Outstanding all the way!

My experience at Bent Creek Lodge was absolutely wonderful. We stayed two nights in the Tree Room which was just lovely. The bed was more comfortable than my own at home, and those luxurious sheets were unreal! The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious, a nice balance of food for all tastes. We ate outside both days, and it was a real treat to sit out on the deck and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The grounds are very interesting and well kept, and I recommend a stroll around back to admire all the nice details. The innkeepers could not have been nicer or more accommodating. From recommendations to assisting with reservations to extra touches like fresh-baked cookies, these folks treat you even better than family! I would highly recommend Bent Creek Lodge for your next Asheville visit.


What a wonderful place to stay!

I stayed at the Bent Creek Lodge, during a business trip. It is a gorgeous place, great views, great food, excellent customer service, cheery and very clean rooms. The garden out back is beautiful! I would highly recommend this place to anyone, and I will return as often as I can. It's really a special place and well worth the visit!


"Gardens in the Woods"

4.4 on May 10, 2015

Our recent stay at Bent Creek Lodge was just what we needed after a long northern winter. Relaxing on the porch swing, listening to the sound of water in the little fountain surrounded by the lovely terraced gardens, with the woods all around, was so peaceful and rejuvenating. It was great that each room has a private entrance out to the porches.The bed was super comfortable and everything you could want or need was provided.Breakfasts were delicious and accommodated our requests.We also got great advice about our plans for the day. So glad we chose Bent Creek Lodge. Bill and Ruthie


Bent Creek Lodge is beautiful inside and out.

4.8 on April 17, 2015

Bent Creek Lodge is beautiful. The gardens are peaceful and lovely as is the hiking trail connected by the bridge spanning the brook. My room was cozy with artfully created handmade furnishings and woodwork. I slept comfortably and felt totally at home. The evening snack was yummy homemade cookies as light as air and breakfast was luscious. Lovely attention to detail shows in the pieces of art arranged to blend and highlight the architectural beauty of the building. Something interesting everywhere you look. We will visit again next month!


Wonderful breakfast!!!!

Wonderful refuge!

4.6 on March 30, 2015

My husband and I recently stayed at Bent Creek Lodge. They do a wonderful job of being hospitable, but not hovering among the guests. Snacks were provided and made easily accessible to guests. We felt welcome and right at home! If you are looking for a peaceful retreat in a gorgeous place, take refuge at the Bent Creek Lodge.


Business trip

My wife and I stayed two nights for business at the arboretum (a very short distance). Exceeded our expectations. Would stay again for sure.
