This newly remodeled room is the only room on the third floor of the Inn, so it is very private and quiet. The king size bed and three window seats beckon you to relax among the pillows, while the gentle trickle of the fish tank soothes your senses. Let your cares melt away in your private steam room or turn on the shower and feel as if you are strolling through a springtime shower.

Mother/Daughter Weekend

5 on July 15, 2014

My daughter and I stayed at the beautiful Chestnut Inn this past weekend. We could not have been more pleased. We had such a good time meeting the other guests but most of all we were so impressed with LaDonna. She gave us a tour of the home and made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in the door. Her tips on restaurants were great. We were able to walk to downtown. The coffee was great and so were the breakfasts. Keith and Chris were also wonderful. We would definitely stay here again.

Innkeeper Response
Ginny , It was such a pleasure to have you and you beautiful daughter Cameron. Your kind words are so appreciated and I am fortunate to have such delightful guests as the two of you. I trust your last day events were all you had hoped and I am sure so pleasurable. I love having Mothers and Daughters come to stay with me. It is truly a special time together. We will hope to see you both again soon. Hugs LaDonna

lovely stay!

Great convenient location with short walk to downtown. Friendly staff and hosts.

great for a group

4.6 on July 07, 2014

We are a group of 6 couples who have been meeting for the weekend of July 4th for 7 years. Asheville and the Chestnut Street Inn was our destination this year - it was a great choice for us. The Chestnut Street Inn was a wonderful fit for us and was well located for enjoying Asheville - plus the view of the fireworks from the front porch for the fourth was fantastic!

Innkeeper Response
Johnny, it was a pleasure meeting you, Janet and all of your group. It looks as though everyone really enjoyed your time together and we are happy to have been able to provide our beautiful old home for the occasion. We will hope to see you all again in the future.

The perfect weekend!

This was our first time at a Bed and Breakfast and we could not have had a better experience! LaDonna and Staff were gracious and welcoming. Our room was lovely and relaxing with a separate living room and small kitchen area. Each morning the breakfast was top notch and we really enjoyed the conversations with the other guests. The Inn is perfectly located close to downtown Asheville with plenty to do to feel part of this unique city. We can't wait to go back! Kevin and Elizabeth Davis

Innkeeper Response
Kevin and Elizabeth it was wonderful meeting you both. We are so glad you chose to spend your 23rd anniversary at the Chestnut Street Inn. We are always delighted to be our guests first bed and breakfast experience, we love spoiling everyone. Our little town is so amazing with so much beauty in the mountains. We will look forward to seeing you both again soon.

Did Not Want to Leave!

5 on June 19, 2014

Really, really loved this B&B and wished I had stayed longer. LaDonna and her staff are really wonderful people and appear to genuinely love their jobs. They should, they are excellent at what they do and you really do feel very welcome when you stay here. LaDonna gave us great recommondations on where to dine and her recommendation of ordering advance tickets to the Biltmore was appreciated. The interior of this B&B is just stunning, the rooms are great and each room is uniquely different. Another, very insightful feature, were the bathroom towels. You might be wondering, why on earth is someone commenting on bathroom towels? Well as a woman, the "brown" embroidered "makeup" towels were great. You can't stain brown towels with your make-up. Simple brilliant, who thinks of this? If you are thinking of the Chestnut Street Inn or another inn, pick the Chestnust Street Inn, you can't go wrong with this B&B. I really enjoyed my stay here.

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you enjoyed yourself at our beautiful old home. We are always finding wonderful antiques at the local estate sale and antique shops so the furniture is always changing. As for the brown make up towels, that developed from shear necessity and being very tired of seeing all my white and light colored wash cloths stained beyond use. This solved my problem and everyone loves them. We will look forward to seeing you again soon.

Great Location

4.4 on June 12, 2014

Our stay at the B&B was restful, service and breakfast was excellent, and the location allowed easy access to everything. The inn is a restored historic home and decorated with many beautiful antiques. Our innkeeper was extremely knowledgeable of things to do and places to eat. Hope to stay again on next visit.

Ashville weekend

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Inn. Everyone was helpful and attentive. The food was good and the service also. My only suggestion would be to install overhead fans in the rooms or individual air conditioners since we found the bedroom to be stuffy and warm at times.

Innkeeper Response
I am so sorry you were not comfortable while you were here. Your visit in April was during a few warm days so we had not installed our window A/C units. We do have central heat and air so that is normally sufficient until later summer when it is warmer. We do have fans we could have offered if you had let us know you needed one. I do hope you will come see us again and we will make sure there is a fan in your room.

We had a very relaxing time during our getaway. The inn was lovely and the accommodations very comfortable. LaDonna is a wealth of information to help with what to do or where to dine. We totally enjoyed out stay.

Innkeeper Response

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

La Donna, Chris and Keith were wonderful. My sister and I had never stayed at a B&B before and we were so pleased with this home. The breakfasts were wonderful and it was fun meeting new people and sharing our stories. La Donna and Chris were so helpful giving us information on places to visit, restaurants, and how to get to the sights. We were able to buy our Trolley passes through her as well. I would definitely stay here again. Chris even gave all of the guests an origami crane that she had made. So sweet.

Innkeeper Response
Chris, Keith and I all loved meeting you both and sharing with you the many wonderful things our beautiful little town has to offer. It is so nice having Sisters come and enjoy their time together in our historic home. We look so forward to seeing you again soon. Hugs!

First time & definitely not the last!

LaDonna and her staff were amazing, the food was amazing, the decor and hospitality, amazing!! We were celebrating our 9 year wedding anniversary early, and this B&B was everything I expected and more. We will definitely be seeing LaDonna again soon & sharing the great reviews with our friends and family!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your review. We love sharing this beautiful old home with our guests and we thoroughly enjoy our guests so spoiling you a little is a pleasure. We want every visit to Asheville to be a wonderful experience so we are honored to start it off here at The Chestnut Street Inn showing you just how special you really are. We look forward to a chance to spoil you a little more in the near future. Hugs, LaDonna
