We stayed at the Bent Creek Lodge in September and were very happy with our stay. The breakfast was delicious! The owners were very friendly and so helpful in planning our day. The location is off the beaten path and surrounded by nature. We did everything including hiking, enjoying the views from the Blue Ridge Parkway (right by the lodge),... More

An amazing place to stay, very peaceful and in beautiful surroundings. The one thing I wasn't expecting was thelarge amount of rooms they had, which gave it a slightly impersonal feeling. Having said that everything was very efficiently run and they had thought through all the details.

Maybe it was us, but this is not a B&B house with a community breakfast, but a lodge with inn-like rooms, and small tables for breakfast. Beyond that, it was very good. Great location-right off BRP, but up a steep wooded road, but that gives it its hideaway charm. Place was rustic, very clean, nice grounds, accommodating hosts. Tree room... More

My husband and I stayed here three nights in the Cherokee room. The room was great, the bed and bedding were so soft. Bathroom was immaculate! This is a beautiful B&B. The inside is so tastefully decorated with fireplaces. cozy couches, bookshelves filled with books and beautiful homey touches. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, with a gorgeous flower garden out... More

Experience was wonderful. Food was amazing, views were beautiful, and the atmosphere was peaceful. Stayed in the Bike room and loved the views of the forest and garden. Best waffles I have every eaten. Chocolate chip cookies at night were awesome.

We visited the lodge September 10-12, 2014. It was our second trip to Bent Creek Lodge. Being from the Outer Banks we always get " the Outer Banks" room. The room only has a double bed, but it is cozy and we love the décor. Both times we stayed while Jodi and Doug were gone and there were interims innkeepers... More

This was our first time vacationing in North Carolina, and the best decision we made was selecting Bent Creek Lodge as our "temporary home" during our week stay. Once we checked in, took the tour of the spacious lodge, and settled into our room, we immediately fell in love with our surroundings and wished it wasn't "temporary". Not only was... More

Beautiful location just off the Parkway. Quiet and peaceful in a lovely building designed such that all the rooms have access outdoors. Welcome was good with drinks and cakes. Good information available. And a lovely breakfast served on the verandah as we were there in August. Could have stayed much longer without any problem. Thanks for a good but short... More

I was thoroughly disappointed in the angry and unwelcoming innkeepers. A beautiful bed and breakfast run by 2 individuals who obviously do not enjoy what they have created. Due to arriving later than they expected (10:30 pm) they treated us with disrespect throughout our stay. Running a great business requires flexibility and RESPECT. I would not recommend to anyone looking... More

I am sorry this guest had a bad experience at our "beautiful" lodge. As she said, she arrived after 10:30 without a call. Obviously she ignored what we told her when she made the reservation and our confirmation which explained our check in times and how to arrange a late check-in and the phone calls and emails we sent when...

Our family has stayed at BCL for several years and the experience just keeps getting better. We love staying in the forest close to Asheville's activities, waking up to birds, colorful gardens, and best breakfasts. There are two living rooms to gather (one has pool table) and three large porches so you can always find a spot to relax. Small... More
