A Warm Place during a Cold Time

5 on January 01, 2018

My husband and I were recently stranded in Asheville due to surprise icy roads. We were frantic to find somewhere to stay, since the temperatures were in the Arctic range and we didn't want to sleep in the car. We were lucky - Pinecrest had one more room, and though it was an hour walk it was certainly worth it! The owners were hospitable and accommodating, going above and beyond what most people would (Dan even took us to our car the next morning). The breakfast was amazing, and we were pleasantly surprised. Our New Years Eve was saved thanks to this B&B and the wonderful owners. We will certainty be returning in the future! Thank you so much.

Great B&B for foodies!

There are a lot of B&Bs in Asheville with great rooms. What makes Pinecrest different from the rest is their attention to food and the communal aspect of breaking bread with others. My wife and I went to Asheville for our anniversary. We hoped to see some of the sites along the Parkway, but due to my bad back we were limited to experiencing local eateries (sarcastic sigh). Little did we know that we were staying in the inn of an excellent cook. Each morning we were greeted with a two course breakfast that kept us well into the afternoon. If we got hungry later, there was a fresh baked sweet waiting for the guest in the dining room. Pecan bars!!!! In addition, both inn keepers made great recommendations of places to eat in Asheville and stay for future visits. We ate at a large table with all the guest one morning and the next we ate in the sun room because we were the only ones there. To our delight, the inn keepers came and sat with us during that mea.l We not only enjoyed great food, but a great conversation with two of the nicest people in Asheville. In closing, this inn is a must if you are considering coming to Asheville.

Innkeeper Response
We were delighted to meet you and your spouse on your recent trip to Asheville. We strive to make our breakfast an enjoyable and filling start to your day of adventures. We hope next time your back stays in shape and hope you choose Pinecrest if visiting again!

- Diane (innkeeper)

We will go back again!

The Martin family was more than accommodating to our needs. I let Mrs. Martin know ahead of time that I didn't eat eggs or pork, and she made sure not to give them to me, and if it was reasonable, I was able to get substitutions. The breakfasts are quite nice and filling, so I still had many other choices. Fresh coffee and juice everyday. The food was wonderful. She also baked snacks everynight so when we got back, there was always refreshments in the common area: coke, sprite, water, coffee, tea, and wine--and of course her freshly baked goodies. Check-in is from 3-5, and I highly urge anyone who cannot make it in that time-frame to let Mrs. Martin know so that she can make other arrangements. Upon arriving, Mrs. Martin gives everyone a map of the downtown Ashville area and gives recommendations and writes them on the map. This was very helpful. We learned our way around quickly and were never steered in the wrong direction. I am glad we took her advise! She also gets two-day pass tickets to the Biltmore Estate which makes it so much more convenient. She said we should take the trolley ride (also a two-day pass) around the area first so we could become acquainted and see what areas we'd like to check out more. It's a beautiful ride and we learned a lot about the city. The house is old so the floors do creak, but that is to be expected of any older home. There are AC units in the room so I was never hot, and there are standing heaters too, so I assume you would never be cold too. Beautiful place and very clean!

Visit was May 2012

My daughter and I stayed at Pinecrest B&B for 2 nights. The place was clean and attractive. The breakfast was wonderful. The place was close to Asheville and you could walk to town. The owners were very helpful in what was in the area. They could not have been more friendlier.

Special Get-Away.....

We chose the Pinecrest B&B to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This beautiful and cozy inn nestled in historic Montford was exactly the kind of retreat we were hoping for. Janna, Stacy & Jim could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The accommodations were lovely as well as comfortable and the amazing breakfast at the Pinecrest is a morning ritual we could get very used to! From fresh flowers and lush towels to the well thought-out menus prepared and presented with such care this bed & breakfast is indeed a very special place. If you’re looking for a place that feels like “home” but better, look no further…..

Lovely, ideal stay at Pinecrest B&B

Our stay at Pinecrest B&B was wonderful from start to finish! The inkeepers were extremely pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable.The home, bedroom, and bathroom were well appointed and immaculate! Our breakfast was delicious, as well as nutritious!! We particularly enjoyed our relaxing nightly cup of chamomile tea on the charming porch before heading to bed. I highly recommend this lovely and ideally located B&B. We will certainly re-book here next time we head to Asheville.

Pinecrest B & B was most pleasant

The hosts, Janna & Jim were most friendly, fun and informative. Their daughter, Stacey cooked great breakfasts every morning and could not have been more nice. The accommodations were extremely nice, comfortable, quiet with impeccable cleanliness and historical charm. They were also most helpful with information about the area. A wonderful experience for my wife and myself for a get a way for the week.

Wonderful Get Away

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at the Pinecrest B&B, October 2011. The inn was lovely and comfortable and the innkeepers were friendly and very helpful. The location to town was an easy, beautiful walk. Just a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We slept like babies on a very firm, comfortable mattress and the bedding and towels were sparkling white and smelled delicious. Breakfasts were to die for, yummy waffles, quiche and french toast, all homemade with lots of sides. In the afternoon we came back to homemade cookies, which were a real treat after a day of sightseeing. We can't wait for a return visit. Carol Mysel
