The Sweet Biscuit Inn is an elegant seven-bedroom Inn and separate Carriage House located in Asheville, North Carolina's quiet wooded neighborhood of Kenilworth. Centrally located, this magnificent 1915 Colonial Revival home offers lodging with urban sophistication, for comfort and friendliness—Southern hospitality infused with European spirit. This B&B is located only 1 1/2 miles south of downtown Asheville's shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes. Only 1/2 mile north of the Biltmore Estate entrance, the Sweet Biscuit Inn is convenient to all of Asheville's attractions. Whether you are visiting Asheville for the diverse cultural charm, the opulence of the Biltmore Estate, or the spectacular mountains of Western North Carolina, you will love the inn's perfect location. Lodging at Sweet Biscuit Inn features 11-foot ceilings, tiger oak wood floors, a dramatic formal staircase, a stunning ceiling-high library and a relaxing front porch, ideal for watching the neighborhood walk by. The rooms (all with private full bath) are unusually spacious; it is your hosts' credo that guests, should have the space to breathe and expand. Mornings at the Sweet Biscuit are Chef Claudia's prime time: She puts all her culinary skills acquired over nine years of cooking in Provence into preparing sumptuous three-course gourmet breakfasts. Do not expect the ordinary, but always an authentic French course. When was the last time you had breakfast dessert?

December 2017 Location of the Inn is perfect, you are literally minutes from downtown Asheville, Biltmore, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The room was spotless, uniquely decorated with luxurious linens and towels. Breakfast was something special and so was the 6+ inches of unexpected snow. Porch candles lit-fresh cookies as you enter-it was wonderful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were so welcoming and attentive. The beautiful sit down breakfast in the morning was delicious and very memorable! We also thoroughly enjoyed the sweet treats ...home made macaroons as we came home in the evening.

Claudia and Christian were friendly and hospitable. The rooms are comfortable and well decorated. The highlight of the stay is the indescribable gourmet breakfast served at the dining room table and shared by all the guests. If we return to Asheville, we will definitely return to the Swee Biscuit Inn!

We stayed one evening but wish it had been longer. The room was the smallest in the Inn but was plenty of space for two. The food served for breakfast and an evening treat was wonderful. Very peaceful, comfortable, relaxing place to stay and a short drive to the Biltmore!

Our travels took us down the Blue Ridge from Banner Elk and hiking several trails along the way. Sweet Biscuit Inn was the last night of our adventure and what a delight. It included a short business venture to West Asheville and they graciously allowed us a late check out. The breakfast was first class, the accommodations were truly pleasurable, and Christian was helpful in every conceivable way to make our stay hospitable. I highly recommend this as a B and B destination.

This was my second stay in this lovely inn. The hosts are congenial; the inn is lovely and the food is delicious. Really the best breakfast I have ever had at an inn of any sort, and I have stayed in many. Claudia is a fantastic chef and and very willing to work around food allergies and preferences. Highly recommended!

We fell in love with the city of Asheville, its vibrant downtown area, its serene surroundings, its eclectic food scene, its quirky and genuinely welcoming population. Even after 6 years, the excitement about our "new" discovery is far from having worn off. We strive to share that enthusiasm with our guests, be they first-time or returning "Ashevillians".
