Romantic mountain getaway

4.4 on March 10, 2014

My husband and I have gone back each year since our honeymoon; we love the serene experience. Relaxing in the mountains is the perfect getaway for us. Each time we have gone we have enjoyed each aspect of our stay; Ken and Glenda are always put for a conversation over good food -- They truly go out of their way to make you feel right at home. The views are too breath-taking to describe; you just have to experience them in person. Every vacation at the Wildberry Lodge has been our best vacation yet.

Incredible Valentine's Day Getaway

5 on February 19, 2014

This place looked great online, but in person it is just incredible. The main cabin has a very good combination of both homely and mountain-lodge feel to it. The breakfast they serve in it was unique each day, with courses ranging everywhere from poached plums to egg casserole to delicious fruit-covered crepes. We stayed in the honeymoon cabin, a newer separate building a short walk from the main cabin. It was absolutely amazing. Great views, a very modern kitchen, incredibly comfortable bed and living area with fireplace, and the most impressive bathroom I have ever seen. The service was also incredible, and it began well before we checked in. Ken and Glenda are very friendly, great cooks, and as genuinely helpful as they come. When we wanted to know where the coffee they had came from, they came back to us with contact information for multiple places they mix their roasts from (which are also delicious). I will be returning here regularly throughout my life. Don't tell your friends about it though, wouldn't want it to be booked up all the time!

Excellent Stay!

My spouse and I stayed here over a cold and snow Valentines Day weekend. Ken met us immediately upon our arrival and showed us our rooms. We stayed in the Strawberry room which was fantastic. Breakfast in the morning likewise was expertly prepared and was of the three course variety. There is no cellphone reception for AT&T however that is part of the charm in my opinion. There are multiple dogs which is a positive for myself however it might not be to everyone. I would without a doubt stay here again; the price was very reasonable and they offer wine, snacks, soft drinks and even gave us water bottles to take home.

Hoping to be able to go back in this new year

3.6 on January 01, 2014

We stayed at this B&B recently and loved it. It had a great view of the mountains in the distance and the farm lands below. Despite the cold winter weather my husband and I sat outside often just taking it all in. It was our first time in the area so we wanted to venture out and do some site seeing in the neighboring towns (otherwise we would have given in to temptation and just sat around enjoying our stay at the cozy cabin). It was a short drive to the Biltmore Estate and about an hour to get to Dupont Forest to hike and see some waterfalls. I highly recommend a stay at Wildberry Lodge. It was lovely, the breakfast was delicious, and it came with complimentary pets to play with during your stay.

Great weekend stay

4.2 on November 21, 2013

My husband and I recently enjoyed a great weekend at the Wildberry Lodge. The hosts, Glenda and Ken, made us feel right at home. Our room was very clean. The main living area was comfortable and welcoming. The food was outstanding! This was our first experience at a B&B and we're glad we did it.
