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

This place is so charming, and the hosts make you feel welcome. There is a lot of history here! The rooms are the cleanest I've ever stayed in, and the breakfasts were yummy! Fantastic walkability to the little main street which has fun restaurants and taverns.

Wonderful inn

Excellent rooms in an elegant old home. The hosts make you feel at home. Service was outstanding. Be prepared to be fed and pampered.

First B&B experience.

The inn was beautiful and our room was cozy and very comfortable. Howard and Kristen were wonderful and extremely accommodating. Also, Howard's morning talks on everything from the weather to current events to Presidential history were very entertaining! We are looking to buy property in the area and we will definitely be back. Thank you again, Kristen and Howard, for a wonderful weekend!

Great stay

We didn't want to "fill in dots" that might be misinterpreted, but the review form requires dots to be filled in, so there you are. We would rather say that our single night at the Dry Ridge Inn was a good experience and we will return whenever we can. Hosts were very gracious, very informative; accommodations were very nice -- quiet, comfortable, far more to see and do in this home than we had time for; breakfast was delicious and filling. Our only regret is that we could only stay one night on this visit.

Great breakfast!!!
