Gene was more than accommodating as he was able to fit us in at the last minute by giving us one room for 1 night, and then another for the other. Plus giving a discount for our inconveniences. The private setting was convenient to Hendersonville and Sierra Nevada complex. The drive to Asheville was challenging, but Gene was able to give us an alternate route that helped somewhat. The only suggestion I have is that the "common areas" were not lighted to invite the guests to relax in them. Whenever entering those spaces it seemed you were invading a private space. Overall it was a pleasant experience! Kudos to Gene!

We absolutely loved the Acorn B&B! Where do I start? The location is excellent for visiting Asheville, the Biltmore estate, Blue Ridge Mountains and Great Smokey Mountain National Park. The rooms we stayed in on the pet friendly area of the the B&B were wonderfully decorated and comfortable. We had our own full kitchen and living room to put our feet up in the evenings and enjoy a DVD from the extensive library the B&B maintains. Lassie loved the entire visit including the ample back yard for walking. And what can we say to fairly describe the gourmet breakfast gene prepared every morning? Fresh local ingredients combined into a unique menu every morning greeted us along with wonderful discussion provided by our hosts. The price is very, very reasonable. We'll be back again for sure! Thanks Acorn B&B for a wonderful time this week! Thanks Margaret and Lassie!

The Acorn B&B was very comfortable. Our room was bright and cheery, comfortable, clean (offered a great bed which lead to a wonderful night's sleep), delicious breakfasts! The host, Gene, was extremely friendly and hospitable. We will stay there again.

Our host was friendly, welcoming appeared to love owing & operating a B and B. We felt right at home. A very relaxed environment & a lovely setting. Great attention to detail.

We do not stay at B & B's as a rule, but after staying at the Acorn Bed and Breakfast, we hope that we can return again! Soon. Everything was perfect. The attention to detail was such that if I thought about something that would be nice to have, all I would have to do is look around a bit and I would find it - and then some! Our hosts were so accommodating, the food was amazing (Gene is a chef!), the grounds were lovely, and since our event brought many of us together, we had some great catching up time as all the rooms were booked by friends and family. Couldn't be better.

We totally enjoyed our five-night stay at Acorn. It was so much fun to have great conversations with the other guests during our AMAZING breakfasts prepared by Chef Gene. We have family in Asheville and we look forward to future stays at Acorn B&B!
