Beautiful lodge and grounds. Very convenient location, just outside of Asheville. Doug and Jodee, and the two dogs, were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was excellent. We'll be back next time we're in Asheville.

My sister and I enjoyed the views and area attractions. Doug and Jodee are the best and are very accommodating. Their dogs greeted us upon arrival and are so friendly. The staff there is friendly as well. The tree room was wonderful, rustic, and very welcoming. You can walk out of the back deck porch to enjoy the surrounding views. I truly enjoyed the healthy breakfast served every morning. I liked walking the grounds and exploring the area. There is so much to do and see in the area such as tubing, searching for antiques, visiting the Biltmore and wine tasting, as well as taking in the Blue Ridge Parkway. We also tour the city and met quite a few unique people along the way. I high recommend Bent Creek Lodge to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and hectic city life to tranquil surroundings. It was truly a stress free vacation for my sister and me. I plan to bring my daughters up on my next visit and later my group of lady friends for a getaway from work, husbands and city home life. Thank you Jodee and Doug for an excellent stress free vacation. Montese King, Richmond, VA

Perfect escape but still close to Asheville. Every aspect was "top notch", that's everything ranging from the sheets to the fabulous homemade granola to the general tone of the lodge. Hope to go back again soon.

Bent Creek Lodge is a beautiful B&B tucked away in the woods near the Blue Ridge Parkway. Great place to stay if your visiting Asheville and a short drive to the Biltmore Estate. Family owned and operated with a great breakfast and plenty of hiking trails nearby.

We recently spent one night on our way home to Florida but wish we could have stayed longer. What a gorgeous setup the owners have here. We especially loved that it felt more like an inn, not just a room in someone's home. We had the Tree Room on the lower level, and our back screened door opened out onto a beautiful deck with porch swings and adirondack chairs. The setting is so serene and quiet - a beautiful garden with meandering paths that lead down into the forest. We had a super-comfy queen bed and our bathroom was spacious and modern, with gentleman-height counter and wall-mounted body soap, shampoo and conditioner. In the main lobby ,there are baskets of snacks for the taking to munch on at your leisure - peanuts, pretzels, energy bars, etc., in addition to the yummy fresh-baked cookies on a platter. There's a cooler full of ice and a small fridge with sodas, bottled water, juices. I liked that they had wine glasses and a corkscrew on the bar for those of us who BYOB. There's also a lounge in the lower level with flat screen TV and drink set-ups (glasses, ice, etc.). Breakfast out on the covered deck was to die for! Whole-wheat pancakes with pecans (and mashed sweet potatoes in the batter), thick slices of bacon, scrambled eggs, choice of juices and coffee, all served up by Jodee herself. We don't have pets anymore but loved their two dogs. Never once heard a bark, but one or both would ever so sweetly come by while we were sitting on the porch and lie near our feet. We will definitely make it a point to stay here on our trips to Ky. to visit family, but next time it will be a mini-destination instead of a one-night stop!

Bent Creek Lodge is beautiful. The location is great, close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Asheville, in a wooded area overlooking a flower garden. The rooms are comfy and everything you need is included. Breakfast is always delicious. The owners are friendly and helpful. The perfect vacation setting!

We can testify our massage therapist, Jennifer Goodier, is wonderful!! She specializes in deep tissue massage. We can schedule a massage for you in the privacy of your room . Your whole body will feel better, your mind clearer and your emotions ready for anything! You and your partner can also schedule an appointment to learn massage techniques within a back-to-back massage session. As one person receives a massage, Jennifer explains and shows examples of how to find the tightened muscle, what pressure to use and what other muscles are recruited in the area that need to be massaged. It's a great way to connect with each other.
