had a good time, BUT

Nice, if small B& B, located on the very top of a mountain about seven minutes by car from downtown Asheville. In early fall, though, the view is obscured by trees. What I liked best: the grounds, the piped music, the fire Bear built the morning I left,the elaborate, delicious breaksfasts, the large tv with ample dvds in the downstairs living room. Now, what ruined my stay. We stayed two nights and the first was fine, but the insulation was such that the second night (we stayed on the middle level) I heard ALL NIGHT LONG footsteps of someone, a guest or staffer, walking upstairs. Naturally, I couldn't sleep. It just boggled my mind and at $200/night it irritated me quite bit. Also, do not use gps to find the place or you will get lost. Use the directions provided in your confirm email. i also recommend using cabs late at nigt cause these hilltop residential areas are a maze to traverse. Veryconfusing!

Mountaintop Experience

What a delightful place! The inn has wonderful trails through the woods, Bear and Patti make you feel right at home, and who wouldn't want to go out of their way for Bear's delightfully fluffy waffles.

Beautiful Mountain Inn

We just returned from our second visit to the Crooked Oak Mountain Inn. We loved it just as much as we did the first time we visited. There's nothing not to like about it. The location was the first thing that drew us there. It is so peaceful and tranquil being on the mountain and yet so close to everything the downtown area has to offer. It's really amazing! The owners are so nice. They go out of their way to pamper you. The breakfasts are delightful. They were the highlight of my husband's day. He was up early each morning to find out what Bear and Patti were cooking. He especially enjoyed the fluffy, light pancakes packed with fresh fruit. The inn, itself, is beautiful inside and out. There are many comfortable spots to enjoy. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed. The beds are comfortable. There are no tvs in the guest rooms but there are a couple in the common areas. We enjoyed sitting outside on the deck and on the terrace. The views are beautiful and relaxing. We visited in August so we really enjoyed escaping the heat of the city below at the end of each day. We are already talking about a return trip.

Simply the best!

My second visit to the inn was just as delightful as my first! The rooms are most comfortable, very clean, and so attractive. The owners are marvelous! Their breakfasts devine! Hopefully there's a third visit in my future.

Great Ashville Trip

Our stay at the Crooked Oak Mountain Inn while on a trip to the Biltmore Estate, Lake Junaluska, the Cove, and Ashville. Patti and Bear and everything about the Inn was great!
