Beautiful B & B!

5 on October 12, 2014

Our first time to stay in a B & B and what a wonderful time we had. LaDonna is a wonderful hostess with endless ideas of what to see, do and where to eat. This beautiful Inn has a welcoming front porch to sit and rock while enjoying a cup of hot tea after a long day of sightseeing. Within walking distance from downtown and a very easy drive to The Biltmore House. Breakfast was delicious and Chris made sure we all were taken care of. The rooms are clean and comfortable with details very well thought out by LaDonna. We will definitely stay here again when we travel to Asheville.

Great place to stay. A short four block walk to downtown. Nice rooms. Friendly and accommodating staff. Great breakfast.

Beautiful Chestnut Street Inn!

5 on September 07, 2014

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Chestnut Street Inn. The Inn is just beautiful outside and in. All the rooms were luxurious, clean and so comfortable. We stayed in the Beaucatcher, a cottage outside the beautiful turn of the century home. The Beaucathcer was very cozy with a small kitchen and sitting area with lovely bedroom and bath complete with a jacuzzi tub/ shower. Ladonna was a wonderful hostess, very friendly and made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were delicious. They were very accommodating of my gluten free diet and their alternative breakfast was also delicious. Chris was also very helpful with suggestions for places to eat and things to see. I love to knit and she was very helpful in providing us with a brochure complete with a listing of all the yarn stores in the area. We enjoyed sitting out on the large front porch visiting with other guests. We also enjoyed the little treats they left out for us to snack on. They have a very talented chef on staff. We felt right at home during our stay and would defiantly stay at the Chestnut Street Inn again.

It's like staying with family!

This home is beautiful and immaculate and very comfortable. LaDonna, Chris and the rest of the staff are so inviting, and do anything they can to help you enjoy your stay. Plenty of tips and suggestions for dining, experiences and sightseeing, they will even make reservations for you if you want. The location is an easy walk to the downtown area. Breakfast each morning was absolutely delicious, such wonderful homemade food! It is also served in a traditional family style, with everyone dining together. LaDonna and staff are excellent with getting conversation amongst the guests started, and in no time at all you feel like you have know these people forever. It really does feel like staying with family! We didn't want to leave, and we will certainly be back. I highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to the Asheville area.

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.

The Zen Retreat

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. The Zen Retreat reflects the laid-back attitude for which Asheville is famous.
