Christmas visit to the Carolina House B&B

5 on January 28, 2014

This was our first time in Ashville --we wanted to see the Biltmore mansion decorated for Christmas. I did a lot of research on hotels and Bed and Breakfasts way back in August. Of all my inquiries I found the people at the Carolina House to be the most friendly and good service for the price which was very reasonable. We stayed in the Robin's Nest as we wanted the king size bed and found the room to be more than satisfactory. It was spacious and cozy at the same time. I love the old world atmosphere. I cannot say enough about the wonderful breakfasts that Sara made for us. They were delicious. Also the great hor-d-ourves and wine that she put out at 5:30 every night. This was a great way to meet other guests and visit with them as well as having a snack and glass of great wine before dinner. The little dessert she put in our room at night was a wonderful personal touch that was much appreciated especially by my husband! We would like to thank Sara for all her hard work for us--she did a marvelous job of making us feel welcome and free to ask for anything that we needed. I would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone who is planning a stay in Ashville. Marlene&Jeff


First Timers

5 on January 01, 2014

Having never stayed at a B&B before, we were excited about the opportunity. We could not have chosen a better B&B. We were treated like family and felt like the Carolina was our own home. The rooms were very comfortable and the food was simply delicious and different each day. Expectations were exceeded.


Great Experience!

5 on December 07, 2013

This was our first time staying at a B&B and Carolina Bed & Breakfast did not disappoint. Our room was very clean and comfortable. All food-from breakfast to our evening dessert was incredible. I enjoyed being able to socialize with other guests and hear their agenda for the day. James was very helpful with food suggestions, driving directions, etc. Will definitely stay again.


Great Experience at the Carolina Inn

4.4 on November 21, 2013

We had a wonderful experience at the Carolina Inn and are planning to return. We have stayed in a number of B & B's and this was one of the best. Though we wanted to get away and be on our own, we really enjoyed the social hour for wine each evening and being able to share breakfast with the other guests. James, Susan and Sarah were more than gracious and accommodating and gave us great suggestions for restaurants and things to do in Asheville.

My Husband and I wanted a much needed getaway! Checked every Asheville B & B's site but chose Carolina because it "checked" all the needed requirements, privacy, comfortable, spacious, pleasing decor and delicious food. It surpassed any expectations! Thank you, Susan and James for a wonderful stay! Shelley and George


Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

5 on October 10, 2013

We were at the Carolina B&B for three nights and it was our first B&B. After looking online and the many reviews of B&Bs in the Asheville area, we decided on the Carolina. This place was awesome. The rooms and bathrooms were very nice and comfortable and the food was outstanding. We had something different everyday and it was a gourmet breakfast so we were never hungry for lunch. All the extras that James and Susan provide make for a wonderful stay. We had a nice treat in our bedroom every night. (i.e. pumpkin cheesecake, blondies). Everyday at 5:30 we had wine and appetizers and was a great social hour with the other guests. James and Susan went out of their way to make sure your every need was taken care of. James was very knowledgaeable about everything in the area and had great recommendations everyday. I can't say enough about our stay at the Caroline B&B and would recommend it to all our friends and relatives. I can certaninly say you will not be disappointed!


Great Location, Delicious Food, Reasonable Price, Wonderful Service

5 on October 07, 2013

My husband and I recently stayed here in the Goldfinch Room. We are so pleased with the experience! Our room was comfortable, beautifully decorated, and very quiet. The breakfasts, hors d'oerves, and snack were DELICIOUS and there was a cookie jar in the dining room which was filled and always available with delightful cookies! James and Susan were superb hosts. James answered all of our questions, and was spot on with restaurant recommendations. And Susan certainly cooks with a creative touch! We felt so at home here, and all the guests were friendly and nice. The location was 15 minutes from town, and a nice walk at that. We will definitely be returning here the next time we visit the area. Thanks James and Susan for making our trip so enjoyable!


Lovely Bed & Breakfast

Our two night stay at the Carolina B&B was everything we expected and more....outstanding food, friendly and helpful staff and treats and wine in the evening. Location was perfect to walk downtown. Room was lovely and very quiet and comfortable...Thank you, Susan and James


More than expexted

The two nights spent at Carolina B&B were very nice. The breakfasts were superb and more than adequate. Susan and James are exemplary hosts and the Inn is a treasure. We enjoyed the guests exchanges and James' commentary on various subjects. Thank you for your gracious hosting and for making our time in Asheville memorable. By the way our Sandy Bottom horseback and garnet mine experience was tremendous. Larry & Linda Lawrence


Lovely B&B

5 on September 08, 2013

Our two nights at the Carolina Bed and Breakfast were very comfortable and enjoyable. The house itself -- including the artwork hung throughout -- is a pleasure, situated in one of Asheville's oldest and most charming neighborhoods, Montford -- convenient to downtown and good restaurants. The backyard garden was beautiful and calming. Hosts James and Susan made us feel at home and provided delicious breakfasts. Breakfast was served anytime between 8:30 and 9:30 so it offers flexibility to your schedule. They alternate daily between sweet and savory entrees so we got both and they were top-notch, with the first-course fruit dishes seemingly simple but extra special in their flavorings. Snacks and wine on the porch in the early evenings were a special treat, and a chance to exchange ideas and information with the other guests. We were worried that our street-side room (Cardinal) might prove too noisy or too bright at night, but we were delighted to find that it was quiet and dark -- we got a great night's sleep both nights. We highly recommend the Carolina Bed and Breakfast to other Asheville travelers looking for pleasant and convenient lodging.
