Always incredible!

We have stayed at least 6 times at the Dry Ridge Inn and will continue to stay whenever we are visiting family in the area. Every detail is perfect for the home’s era; the breakfasts made by Kristen are much better and more beautifully presented than any of the Asheville 5-start hotels, Howard is very knowledgeable about everything Weaverville and both the Dusenbery’s are indeed attentive and gracious hosts! Even the floors have a delightful squeak! Summertime is great for the koi ponds, outdoor breakfasts and occasionally hearing Howard play the bagpipes, kilt and all! Thank you, Kristen and Howard, for another exquisite B&B stay!!!

Very nice home reminds me of my mothers house the inn keepers Howard and Kristen are great host with very good local knowledge, our visit was to see something different we visited Biltmore estates and the town of Weaverville, Downtown is great just 1 to 3 blocks from inn, started out our morning with a great breakfast from out host, Food came out looking just like pictures on their website and tasted great as it looked each day was different and great, stayed in Davidson room on 3rd floor, room was very clean, quite and peaceful, will definitely stay at inn next time we are in area, Weaverville has several great restaurants just a short walk from inn 1 to 3 blocks away 7 or 8 placed to eat Blue mountain Pizza a Favorite with live music every night 7 to 9, Staying at inn with Kristen and Howard was like visiting out of state and staying with your aunt and uncle, great atmosphere and great company.

A warm and inviting b&b. The rooms are lovely and the beds are comfortable with nice linens. Everything is clean and well kept. The front porch is a great place to sit and read or rock or just watch the trees. The breakfast is exceptional. I've stayed here several times and have never had a bad experience. Only 10 minutes or so to Asheville.

Fantastic B&B

Beautiful home, lovely,comfortable and clean rooms. Inn keepers are great. The breakfast, oh my, so good. I have had the pleasure of staying here 3 times and have never been disappointed. Weaverville is close to Asheville and has several nice restaurants in the little town. I highly recommend this B&B!

Love this place!

Close to everything yet so far away. Comfy, relaxing and quiet.

First time-already planning for a second!

My daughter and I stayed for 5 days when visiting family in Weaverville. I was overjoyed to not only find a place 5 minutes from my family, but at an absolutely wonderful price. But it turned out to be the second best thing about our visit! Seeing family being the first! Howard and Kirstin are amazing. Our visit was so enjoyable. I highly recommend. It's close to Asheville without the prices of Asheville. The Inn is cheaper than most hotels I check out. I will be back! Marilyn Potts, Glen Burnie, MD
