Excellent Stay

4.6 on November 15, 2013

This was our first time staying at the Rock Laurel Bed & Breakfast. Everything was excellent from the moment we arrived to the morning we checked out. Judy and Joe are great hosts and know how to make their guests feel at home. The breakfast was something to write home about. We didn't eat the rest of the day. Judy's homemade buscuits are delicious. We surely will return. Sincerely, E & P

Nice place, with nice people!

We stayed several nights at the Rock Laurel B&B and had a pleasant stay. Here is a summary: 1) A nice property located approx. 20 min away from Asheville. 2) The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. 3) The owners (Joe and Judy Holloway) are very nice people who make you feel welcome and at home. Judy prepares a large "country" breakfast every morning that is served at 9 AM. And yes, she is a good cook, lol. Enjoy your stay... I know we did. Thanks again!

Very pleasant experience

Rock Laurel was awesome

Arrived early, to dress for a wedding that afternoon. The host and hostess were so nice to get our room ready and then even offered us wine and cheese. We had a great breakfast the next morning and great conversation. The hosts gave us a good tip on a nice trip to Brevard, via the Blue Ridge Parkway. Wonderful stay. We will be back.

Fell in love!

My boyfriend and I booked the Green Room for our two year anniversary. The house was in a great location with a stream, beautiful fall trees, and a bunch of screened doors for a nice breeze. Joe and Judy were extremely welcoming and Joe had so many great stories to tell. Judy's breakfast was over the top delicious. They were very helpful in helping us decide on a restaurant in Asheville and a nice,scenic drive for the ride home. We only stayed one night but we will surely stay here again!
