Incredible getaway

5 on November 08, 2017

This was an incredible getaway. I had an opportunity to spend a full week there, Sunday through Saturday, and I can hardly wait to return. The B&B was quaint, welcomingly and beautifully decorated, and very clean; it feels like home. It is the perfect size, so you will never feel overcrowded even if it is full. The atmosphere is absolutely heavenly as you look out over the mountain ranges. Nestled among the trees, this B&B sits at the highest elevation in the resort and in North Carolina at 45 miles high, and the peace and quiet is so serene. Whether sitting on the porch watching the deer, rabbits, squirrels, humming birds and finches; listening to the babbling brook and owls; or hiking to the top of Big Bald Mountain via the private entrance to the Appalachian Trail, there is no better place to be to just enjoy life. Tony and Monica, the owners, are very friendly and attentive, yet unobtrusive. The food was delectable! The coffee and goodies are non-stop if you have any room for them after the wonderful breakfasts. I am a vegetarian and Monica was very accommodating. Monica made a Panini for me one evening. When I return, we are going to fire up the pizza oven! I refer to this place as the “Mountain of the Lord”, so whether you are going to enjoy nature, just get away from the hustle and bustle, for mental or spiritual healing, or just for some R&R, it is the place to go. As an author, I found it to be an excellent setting for the creative juices to flow. You cannot go wrong with this choice.


Serene, Sumptuous, Stunning Views

Love this Beautiful B&B and we will be back!!

This place is amazing!! We will definitely be going back! My boyfriend and I wanted a romantic getaway in the mountains, and especially during peak leaf change season. We looked at so many places but they were all booked. This pace was very hard to find online, but...I am so glad we finally stumbled upon it! Monica, the caretaker, was about as good as they get! She was so pleasant on the phone while booking our stay, and even more so during it. She grows most all of her fruits and vegetables in her own backyard, and you can certainly taste the yummy difference. We even got a last minute upgrade to a huge king room with lots of windows, a seating/living room area, and large bath. It was all so beautifully decorated and tastefully done, with just enough charm to remember you are in a quaint bed and breakfast. The weather wasn't so great due to some rain. and yet, we were so pleased with our view and the entire Wolf Laurel Resort atmosphere. If you are not a mountain driver, it does take a little getting used to. But, we had an all-wheel drive and that certainly helped! While there, Monica kept our room clean and well-stocked with fresh towels and paper-goods. There was Dove chocolate when we arrived, sodas, coffee, apple cider, hot chocolate, and so many other added touches. The breakfasts were extraordinary! She not only came out in a professional chef style coat with her name on it,...but she didn't miss a thing! She made yummy quiche, a very nice pumpkin bread, a delicious raspberry Greek style yogurt parfait, fat cinnamon rolls, and so many other goodies! The bed was super cozy and comfortable, and the room was too. I loved opening the blinds to see the glorious mountain views! Breathtaking! We will be back again for sure and are already looking at our calendar! I highly recommend this lovely place!! Thank you Monica!!

Had a great weekend here- nice and quiet with great views and access to the AT. Chef Monica's breakfasts were delicious and the bed was super comfy! Would recommend for a quiet getaway away from the city!

Wonderful Place!

We happened upon this B&B almost by accident, we were trying to find a place to stay close to Mars Hill College. Monica welcomed us and immediately made us feel like extended family in for a visit! She had fresh baked cookies for us, showed us around the house, and inquired about breakfast. She is a wonderful chef and we will ALWAYS stay with them, if they have a room available!

Wow. Wow. Must go here. Period.

My wife and I were looking for a getaway for Memorial Day weekend. It was just perfect perfect perfect. Monica and Tony have thrown their whole soul and spirit and lifelong expertise into making sure you feel comfortable, pampered, everything you need. The breakfasts were outstanding, there's direct access to Appalachian trail, the views are stunning, accommodations more than ample, the atmosphere warm and every single imaginable detail is taken care of in the most esthetic, professional yet friendly way. Even the tap water is from the local sweet spring--we filled our bottles with it. We're going back, we're telling all our friends.


Awesome place
