10 couples from our church gathered for a marriage enrichment retreat. The rooms were attractive and the entire atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. We were able to meet as an entire group in the main area upstairs and had that same commons area to gather and visit at other times. Doug and Jodee were gracious hosts. I would enthusiastically recommend... More

This was my first visit to a B&B. I was surprised at how small the rooms were, but from what I've read on here that is pretty typical for a B&B. The place was very clean and the owners and staff very friendly. Loved the log-cabin rustic feel. Because it is all hard wood flooring inside, sound did carry and... More

We spent two nights at this B&B just outside Asheville, surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery. We had to drive along a narrow winding road up into the woods for a few minutes but the B&B is really well signposted. We thought this was a very well run and well designed place- the owners Doug and Jodee had it built from... More

The breakfast was okay. The room was small. There is a nice gathering area. Very nice hosts. I imagine this is paradise during the summer but for the off season this is probably not the best bang for your buck.

Thank you for your review. I hope you enjoyed your stay and I am not sure how to take your concern about cost. You did know the price before you came and may have chosen us for the very fact that we are one of the most economically priced B&B's in the Asheville area. The price is more than some... More

Unreal breakfast that changes up daily with nice fresh local fare. Very convenitent for exploring Asheville and the surrounding state parks/national forest/blue ridge parkway. Remote yet close to plenty of action. Hosts and staff were over-the-top accomodating and pleasant. Doug and Jodee never failed to take the time to ask what adventure was explored the day before and what the... More

Pleasant enough B & B. The room was nice sized (barn room) but for what I paid it should have been. The value I prefer wasn't quite there but I certainly can't complain about this place. I would head back if I had some sort of deal. The grounds were beautiful.

Bent Creek Lodge is a wonderful base from which to explore Western North Carolina. It's a charming lodge with beautiful grounds and a remote feel, but is quite convenient to Asheville, the nearby national forests, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Doug and Jodee Sellers and their staff do a superb job of making their guests feel at home. Amenities include... More

This B&B is the best! It has the best location - quiet, scenic, yet close enough to Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The breakfasts were delicious with waffles/pancakes, egg dishes, fruit and sausage/bacon. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. They have lots of extras - free cookies, lemonade, bottled water,and sodas in the lounge/family rooms. Owners are... More

On-line pictures do not do this wonderful lodge justice. It is situated in the back woods which allows for total peace and quiet. It was the perfect spot for us to rest and rejuvenate after a hectic family reunion in the Smokies. The lodge itself is amazing. I suggest reading the book in the great room to learn the story...
