This is a wonderful bed and breakfast that I highly recommend to anyone going to the Hendersonville, North Carolina area. It was such a great experience that I would recommend traveling to Hendersonville just to stay at the Elizabeth Leigh and eat at the restaurants on Main St. It's a very relaxing and classy small town. Main St. is a short 10 minute walk from the inn. When I walked into the inn, I was blown away by the elegant antique decor. The pictures online just don't do it justice. I stayed in the Blue Room. It had a large comfortable bed, two chairs, loveseat, wardrobe, and a few other various decor items. All the colors and patterns went together flawlessly. The bathroom was incredible. It had gold and white accents, but still went really well with the blue theme. There were plenty of fresh high quality thick white towels neatly rolled in a basket. The shower had an adjustable head. Water stayed warm the whole time despite showering at the same time as other guests. Breakfast was southern, filling, elegantly served, and tasted amazing. The first breakfast was eggs, bacon, and thick French toast. The next was a cream cheese, berries, and French toast casserole or 'hot dish' depending on where you're from. There was complimentary bottled water, wine, ice cream, homemade white chocolate macadamia cookies, homemade pound cake (which was wonderful), and beer. Now possibly the most enjoyable part, the rest of the property. The inn has a wraparound porch with big white rocking chairs that overlook the yard and the little street in front of the house. The backyard has a fountain, swing in front of a little waterfall pond, and corner area with seating. There are multiple places to have private conversations with your loved one(s).

Had an amazing stay for our anniversary at the Elizabeth Leigh Inn. Beautifully decorated Inn that is impeccably clean. Cindy is an incredible innkeeper and her breakfast was delicious. Book your stay at Elizabeth Leigh Inn with confidence.

Cindy and Mike are the most amazing people in the world. Their Inn is beautiful and I was treated like a princess the whole time, every time I visit!

The renovated home is large and beautiful--very well decorated and appointed. Our hosts, Cindy and Mike Baer, were gracious and welcoming. Our room was large, lovely and very comfortable. Common area off kitchen has wine, beer, water and soda with snacks. We watched late night TV in the parlor while snacking on ice cream and cookies. Breakfast was tasty and satisfying. Definitely plan to spend some time on the fantastic wrap-around porch which stretches around 3 sides of the home. Grab a book off the book shelves, enjoy the rocking chairs and the breeze and let the world go by. Parking area is convenient. Hendersonville is a lovely little town with lots to do including the nearby Flatrock Playhouse. This is one of the top B&B's we've visited and we will definitely return.

I spent three days at the Inn in June 2011 on a combination business/pleasure trip. This is a great place. The grounds are spacious with two patios and a large covered porch where I often met with my associates (or had breakfast). The complementary wine bar was a nice touch, as were the tasty snacks. The rooms and bathrooms were absolutely immaculate - no grungy grout or funky bedspread smells, etc. I did have the opportunity to chat at some length with the innkeepers and proprietors, Cindy and Mike Baer. They were most gracious and hospitable hosts (and very interesting people). Apparently Mike is a successful businessman who travels a bit, so I get the impression the service delivery combines his experience of what travelers want with her hospitality and sense of decorum. I'm not a big breakfast eater, but they were also excellent. The home has a high-speed wireless connection and flat panel cable TV in the bedrooms (at least in mine), so don't let the fact that the home is on the historical registry fool you to thinking that it's low tech. However, the technology does not detract from the "Old South" ambiance of the property... Downtown Hendersonville is walking distance (about 800 yards or so), so its conveniently located to the restaurants and shops. All in all - a great experience.

This was the first time we have stayed in a B&B and were not sure what to expect. It was a great experience and they were great hosts. We enjoyed interacting with the other guests that were there while we were there. This is a great place to stay.

My husband and I have stayed at many B and B's, but this is the best ever. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable, which isn't always the case in older homes. Everything was perfect. There is a hugs wrap around porch that just begs was rocking and resting. We loved everything about it. Dick and Lin Moyer, Atlanta, GA

My daughter and I vacationed together in North Carolina a few days before she went away to a sleep-away camp, and vacationed here. The home is meticulously kept; no small detail is left unchecked by our warm, friendly innkeeper. The breakfasts were a delight, with fresh seasonal fruit (her own canned jams) and otherwise excellent cooking. The bed was extremely comforting...hard to get out of in the morning. I will be staying here again and again, as I find ways of making my way back to North Carolina!

Six of us thoroughly enjoyed Memorial Day weekend at the Elizabeth Leigh B&B. It, by far, exceeded our expectations. The service and food were outstanding. The rooms were nicely appointed, clean and linens were top quality. We'll definitly plan a return trip. It is conveniently located to the downtown area.

Found this wonderful B&B last summer- the decor is exceptional, it's completely renovated so has central air, nice bathrooms, and all the comforts of home. The breakfasts are wonderful and access to a variety of drinks and snacks is always available. Our son discovered a number of games under the large screen state of the art television in the living room and we had the best time playing shutes and ladders- even though we were all a little old to be playing that game- just like old times. We're looking forward to playing Hendersonopoly on our next trip. Great wrap aroun porch!

My mom and I stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast for only one night, and I wish we could have stayed for a week! The rooms, especially the Rose Room in which we stayed, are beautifully decorated, welcoming, and metiously cleaned. Our breafast was delicious, and the lovely inkeeper even let me mom stay several hours past check-out time as I was attending a seminar. We truly enjoyed our stay and plan to return!

This is the way a B&B should be. First class in every detail.

The stay at the Elizabeth Leigh was amazing. The breakfast was nothing less than superb and Cindy went above and beyond to ensure our stay was cozy. After many different inns, this is a sure bet for satisfaction.

Fantastic Bed and Breakfast! The facilities exceeded our expectations. The breakfast was excellent. There is a guest pantry with wine, sodas, snacks. For our stay, homemade strawberry ice cream and real pound cake were available for us to help ourselves. We certainly enjoyed coming back from dinner and sitting on the porch nejoying ice cream and pound cake. We stayed in the Rose room on the first floor. The mattress was extremely comfortable. The sitting area within the room was a bonus. This is our favorite of all the Bed and Breakfasts in which he have ever stayed. We will return.
