Every detail

4.8 on December 23, 2014

Every detail is thought of during your stay. There is a butler's pantry in the dining room. It has both sweet and savory snacks available. Also, there is a nice selection of cocoa and hot tea. They even keep a Keurig with coffee available at all times. Each day a new freshly made sweet snack is available here. A genuine effort is made to not repeat breakfasts and in fact they tend to have a sweet then savory rotation. The owners act as your concierge for the local area and will happily make phone calls to make reservations and the like. They are friendly and at the same time not intrusive in the least.


Recently found treaure in the mountain!

I am a bit hesitant to post my review as sometimes when one finds something extraordinary - one almost is reluctant to share it with the fear that it may not be available when needing it again in the future! But I will share with the hopes that there will always be room at the inn for my husband and me. Deb & Shell treated us like family the minute we arrived right up until the hugs when saying goodbye's. Breakfast was a time of celebration around the table with great conversation, 5 star breakfast, and even a little bag of goodies to take with us for the day! We had a wonderful relaxing weekend and will definitely be back for more!


Wonderful relaxing B&B

5 on December 17, 2014

Inn owners Deb and Shell do everything possible to make your stay perfect. And the breakfasts are sublime.


What a great place to stay!

This was a beautiful bed and breakfast with wonderful owners that treat you like family. The food was delicious and the attention to detail was wonderful. I am looking at the calendar for 2015 to see when we can go back.


We will be back!

4.8 on December 01, 2014

My wife and I stopped through on a whim to see the ginger bread house competition at the Grove Park Inn. It was short notice during Thanksgiving weekend, so the prices were off the chart at most other establishments. We gave the Oak Hill B&B a try and were so glad we did! Shell and Deb were the most delightful hosts and the food she prepared was prepared with love! It was delicious and quite satisfying! They work as a team and are very attentive and helpful. We are looking forward to our return in the spring!


Anniversary Tradition

5 on November 24, 2014

Wonderful place in the beautiful NC mountains. Town dining and shopping a must. The proprietors are a prefect fit for this B & B. An annual tradition for us.


Had a great time. Would definitely stay again.

4.6 on November 21, 2014

Deb and Shell provide excellent service. Great location being outside of Asheville but still close enough to take advantage of the city. Would and probably will stay again.


The best B&B that I ever stayed at

5 on November 18, 2014

This is the second time I stayed at Oak Hill B&B and I will stay there again and again. The property is beautiful and the owners are amazing they make you feel so spoiled.


Exceeded our expectations in every way!

5 on November 14, 2014

We are frequent travelers. We prefer to stay at a B&B rather than a chain hotel. Oak Hill on Love Lane was one of the nicest B&Bs we have ever enjoyed. The rooms and common areas were spacious, with every amenity carefully provided. The Inn was beautifully decorated but kept its sense of history. The morning sunrise over the treetops was only surpassed by the creative gourmet breakfast awaiting us. The owners provided excellent service and attention to detail. With so much to see in the world, we often don't visit the same place twice; however, we will be back to Oak Hill! There was great dining and so much to see in the area...two nights were just not enough.


Great Stay

5 on November 10, 2014

Great B&B large comfortable room and excellent friendly service. Very tasty breakfasts. Everyone eats together at breakfast on one table so you can meet the other guests which we enjoyed. Great location with good views from the veranda. Comfortable guest sitting room as well and Wi-Fi in rooms at no extra cost. Perfect place to stay.

Ella Davis-Ray, the matriarch of the Ray family, was a strong-willed and beautiful woman accustomed to all the luxuries of the time. Clyde, after much cajoling (and the advent of the railroad), convinced Ella to move to the budding town of Waynesville to raise their family. The story has it that after the birth of her 12 children, Ella, in an effort to insure her privacy, moved up to the guest room and promptly had a lock installed on the door! Needless to say, there were no more children after that. •Bedroom, En-Suite Bathroom (second floor) •Standard Tub/Shower •King Bed •Bay Windows •South & East Mountain Views •Approximately 340 Square Feet
