The Grandview lodge was the last night's stay on our Skyline/Blue Ridge trip. I wanted something special, and Grandview came through. The beds were soft and comfy, the room (Thomas Wolfe) was beautiful, the food fresh and flavorful (REAL eggs!). it was a great final night. P.S. Yes, the house creaks when people walk. It's old, old houses creak. Deal with it. We had no trouble sleeping at night.
We chose the Lion and the Rose for a special Anniversary weekend. It was the best possible choice. The home was inviting and beautiful. Our rooms were clean and spacious. We loved having a balcony to sit on each evening and morning. Our hostess was delightful and her breakfasts were out of this world!! Man, she can cook! She happily accommodated my husband with an early breakfast when he wanted to go golfing one morning. We are so glad we chose the Lion and the Rose. We recommend it highly!
We have stayed in many B&B's over the years and I have to say that this was the cleanest, most peaceful, beautiful and relaxing setting-not to mention meticulously cared for!! The property is just beautiful and if felt so comfortable, it was perfect!! Doug and Jodee were so kind, interesting and informative to speak with!! The staff were all very kind and helpful as well!! The breakfasts were definitely over the top and certainly as they hoped, something special that you would not have everyday at home! We are looking forward to our next visit this fall!!
We found the house majestic with very very helpful, knowledgeable, and attentive staff. Beautiful grounds and gardens and great porches with sitting spaces. On site spa facility so we were able to have top flight massages without having to leave the house. Walked to a great restaurant for dinner and had a terrific breakfast the next morning in the wonderful house dining room.
The Bent Creek Lodge provided a beautiful spot to take in the mountains of Asheville. It is close to the French Broad River where we were able to kayak. We also hiked right off the property. The hosts were gracious and friendly. We enjoyed our delicious breakfasts and snacks left out for us daily. Southern hospitality can be found here.
We had a wonderful time and Jill was very helpful with all of the local things to do. The place was wonderful and the hot tub at the end of a day visiting the sights was so welcomed. Highly recommend this place.
Wonderful secret anniversary getaway. Beautiful scenery from hot tub, deck and inside cabin. Fishing in both lake and streams. Town close by and went to a festival. Grilled fantastic dinners. Bed was so comfortable. Cozy fireplace. Weather was fantastic for morning coffee on the deck to glass of wine in the evening. I recommend this place to anyone that's wants to get away from a rush around life. Absolutely beautiful.
My husband and I loved our stay at Abbington. Absolutely gorgeous grounds; we took a morning stroll through their English gardens which were beyond lovely. The breakfast was hands down the best breakfast I had ever had. Our room was also so clean and gorgeous and luxurious. We loved it and will be back. It did not bother us at all, but the one thing to note would be if you stay in a ground room and someone is above you, you can hear them walking around. It's not that loud (my husband and I are city folk so we barely noticed), but if you are someone who that would bother, you might want to get an upstairs room. Other than that, cannot recommend this place enough. We will be coming back.
I highly recommend this B & B. Everything about our stay was exceptional. We hope to return again. The breakfast was delicious with a new menu each day, our room was clean and comfortable, the lodge was beautiful, and most importantly the hosts and staff were very accommodating and kind. My husband and I loved everything about our visit.
Emilie and Arturo have created an elegant, romantic retreat for their guests, and their hospitality, culinary skills, and enthusiasm as concierges makes a stay at the Chestnut Street Inn that much more memorable. Loved every moment there. We were in town overnight on business and would love to come back for a few days, enjoy the jacuzzi bath, and relax on the front porch with a mixed drink.
Bed of Roses is a beautiful house and the room was wonderful. I only had 2 minor complaints during my stay. The window shades next to the bed did not completely block the view from the outside. I had use my cell phone holder to clip the sides of the curtains together to ensure privacy. My second complaint was that the first floor room is so close to the kitchen, and dining area, that I was woken up during the breakfast preparation. I would recommend this B&B to my friends and family and enjoyed my stay. The owners are very welcoming and cooked an incredible breakfast.
We stayed 4 nights in the Queen Mary room- perfectly cozy overlooking the garden out back. Each morning Nick prepared a delicious breakfast but what what got my attention was each morning the breakfast table was set with different set of dishes.. napkins too! Nick also hosted us each night at 5:00-6:00pm for wine, cheese, beer and homemade warm tasties.... perfect for sharing with our house mates on how they spent their day and to compare travel notes. Abbington Green is top notch. If it were closer to Seattle I would go again this weekend.
The location was close enough to walk downtown (just over a mile), but far enough away from the noise of downtown. The location had great opportunities for a morning walk or run...I recommend the Riverside Cemetery for a morning run! Our room was PERFECT! It was beautiful and clean! The breakfast was delicious, but rich...but hey, I was on vacation and kept up my running routine and walked quite a bit downtown. The Owners were visible every morning and very friendly! We will be back for sure!
Nice place. The neighborhood doesn’t compliment the Inn. The “walk” to the village is like hiking a series of switchbacks in the mountains. Enjoyed the stay and the exercise walking down and back up. Very helpful staff. Excellent setting for meeting other travelers.
We were looking for a relaxing escape in Asheville and certainly found it at Abbington Green! We stayed in Queen Mary’s Garden which was lovely and pristine. Nick and Carey and their staff were the epitome of hospitality. The breakfasts were delicious and the conversation with the staff and other guests easy and fun. Nick was very knowledgeable about the area, had suggestions about restaurants and other things to do. We stayed 2 nights but I wish we could have stayed longer and had more time to sit on the porch or patio with a cup of coffee or glass of wine!
My daughter and I spent a wonderful long weekend here. Located in a quiet, historic neighborhood five minutes from downtown, the inn was the ideal place to stay and relax. Peter and Lori are the ultimate hosts— friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. And the breakfasts — amazing!! This was my second stay at The Black Walnut, and it confirmed my initial impressions— this is exactly why I stay in a bed and breakfast while traveling! Truly wonderful—
Everything was top notch. From the accommodations to the service of the staff. You are made to feel like you a visiting a family member or close friend. Nick made me feel a friend with his warm welcome, instead of a stranger from the beginning. I must say the food was excellent and he makes sure if you have any dietary restrictions, you are accommodated. I would DEFINITELY return.
Everything about our week there was superb. Not a single complaint about anything. Our host, Gene, was knowledgeable about the area and very willing to share his expertise. We got lots of good info and suggestions from him. And . . . his breakfasts were "to die for". Every one was excellent! We couldn't have found a better place for our week in the Asheville area. he truly became our friend during our stay there. We hope to return to the area again . . . and we know exactly where we'll stay. ACORN B & B for sure. Randy and Ilene Kendrick, Utah
We had stayed here on a previous trip so knew what we were in for. The owners go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. We stayed in the Magnolia Room which is very roomy with a king sized bed and ensuite bath. Wonderful breakfasts ( Gene is a master chef) a true southern hospitality. Will definitely stay her on any future trips.
What a wonderful stay! The entire staff makes you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Breakfast is a delight! Great attention to detail in all they do. They really set the bar very high for other B&B's.
When you find a special treasure, you go back to experience it again and again. We just enjoyed our second visit to Abbington Green last weekend. It's like going "home" to a place where you are warmly welcomed and treated like family. We stayed in a different room this time, only because we would like to eventually try ALL of the rooms in the Inn. The attention to detail and thoughtfulness of Nick and his staff always make our stay a comfortable, relaxing and satisfying one. I began our stay by enjoying a 90 minute hot stone & aromatherapy massage...it was wonderful!! We settled into our beautiful room and then enjoyed the delicious appetizers served during happy hour. Saturday morning we were awakened by the unbelievable scents coming from the kitchen, only to discover that it was our breakfast being lovingly prepared. As we sat at the beautifully set table with the other guests, we enjoyed our delicious breakfast, served by the most gracious staff. They brought me my favorite tea and even remembered my husband's love of bacon. We spent the day at the Biltmore and then returned in time to enjoy another selection of homemade appetizers, artfully prepared by the Innkeeper Nick. The beds at Abbington Green are the most comfortable beds we have slept in (away from home) in our many years of traveling. Sunday morning was bittersweet as we delightfully dined at breakfast and chatted with the other guests, knowing it was time to head home afterwards. Sigh!! So for now, we remember another wonderful weekend at Abbington Inn, and we look forward to our next visit...maybe this summer for the Chiluly Exhibit at the Biltmore? Counting the days!!
