My husband and I discovered Bent Creek several years ago, and loved it. I had not had the opportunity to visit after he passed away until my stressed out daughter, who has two preschoolers, needed a get away. Bent Creek to the rescue! We stayed in the Mountain room, which was perfect for us with twin beds, and loved that... More

My two sons and I spent 2 nights here and we did not want to leave! Really lovely, quiet, in the woods but minutes from downtown Asheville, and a 5-star breakfast to boot. The boys really enjoyed the pool table. Bed was firm and comfortable. Bent Creek is a really special place and I plan to return for sure.

My wife and I stayed two nights. You'll feel miles from nowhere, but can easily access civilization. More north woods lodge, less B&B. And that's why I liked it. Enjoyed playing guitar and singing by the large fireplace. Next time hopefully we can use the fire pit in the secluded woods. We'll be back!

My wife and I were looking for a weekend resting spot for our Saturday visit to the Biltmore Estate, and Sunday drive of the Blue Ridge Parkway to look at fall foliage. The Bent Creek Lodge was exactly what we were looking for. Nestled in a quite wooded location but with easy access, and very relaxing. Great hosts, great breakfast,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Bent Creek Lodge recently and really enjoyed our visit. The staff are very friendly (and willing to give local food/activity advice), the food and lodge interior are incredible (fire going all day in the fireplace), and the beds are so comfortable that we wrote down the name of the manufacturer. Also took advantage... More

We enjoyed our two night stay in the Asheville area. The room was clean and in good condition. The breakfast was delicious and the the service was polite. Staff were helpful with questions about the area and recommended restaurants.. We missed the friendly social atmosphere that we have associated with staying at B&B's. That may be attributable to the size... More

My husband and I married in the Outer Banks and spent the second half of our honeymoon in the mountains. Bent Creek Lodge is cozy, the staff is warm and accommodating, and the food was delicious. We enjoyed days cruising the Blue Ridge Parkway, evenings in downtown Asheville enjoying the restaurants, and mornings at the lodge. It's lovely to come... More

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
