Everything was absolutely perfect! The breakfast was delicious, the room was clean, and just the right size and location. We loved the access to the back deck! Doug and the rest of the staff truly made us feel comfortable and welcome. My husband and I would recommend Bent Creek to anyone!

Serene setting, warm and welcoming staff, exceptional service, all within easy access of Asheville and surrounding towns. Breakfasts were delicious and featured local fruits and vegetables, meats and baked goods. The lodge and landscape are simply beautiful and well maintained; a testament to the love and energy of the owners and staff. I was there for a week and will certainly return again.

This was our first ever bed and breakfast and we fell in love with it. The first day I saw a fawn behind the building. The breakfast were AMAZING. The Granola is to die for. The room was super clean and we were in a great location near Brevard. The owner was very helpful with any plans we had. He would show us the map and suggest where the good hiking or outdoor activities were. Will definitely return!!

We stayed at the Bent Creek Lodge for our first anniversary celebration. We had tickets for the Candlelight Christmas Tour at Biltmore House while we were there. We had a great time! Lisa was especially helpful to us in suggesting restaurants and shopping. We would like to return in the spring!

This was one of the best places I've stayed on vacation. Quiet, clean, comfortable and beautiful. We loved sitting on the porch just relaxing and listening to the birds. I am a garden/flower lover and this was right up my ally. I've taken home a few ideas from your garden to use in my own. Rooms were definitely the cleanest I've been in and the breakfast was awesome. You both and your helpers were very welcoming and inviting. When we find ourselves back in your area we will definitely book a few nights at your lodge. Thanks

I highly recommend the Bent Creek Lodge! We had a wonderful stay in November and are already planning our next visit there. The breakfasts were delicious and the view was lovely. It was nice to be near downtown Asheville and still enjoy nature.

The lodge is beautiful and we really enjoyed sitting on the back porch looking into nature in the beautiful gardens! Wonderful breakfast including gluten and dairy free friendly. Within a mile of the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway and other hiking areas! It didn't take us any longer than 20 minutes to get downtown to restaurants. New outlet mall is close by as well! Very professional owners and staff… Everyone was happy and in a great mood! We will return!
