Exterior and interior of house are lovely. Property outside is a bit junky and too close to the road but by-and-large a nice place to stay. History is interesting. Some found it hard to sleep because we heard planes (near the airport) and a train along with dogs barking from the owner's suite and the rooms where guests kept theirs.... More

My fiance and I bought a Living Social deal for a weekend and the Blake House Inn. We could not have imagined a better experience. The house is old-fashioned with a lot of character & it was such a neat experience - much better than staying at a hotel! It is a quick drive to downtown Asheville and to Biltmore.... More

The house is old-fashioned but kept in good condition. My wife and I stayed in the suite in a different building very close to the house but not in the home like I had imagined. The food was good and the women working there are very nice. I will advise NOT getting a massage through the B&B, however, since the... More

We had a wonderful experience this weekend at the Blake House Inn. Leslie, Rebecca and Marie were all incredibly accommodating and helpful. The breakfast was delicious, and traveling with our small dog has never been easier. She had toys in the room and a park next door. The location is great was only about a $25 Uber ride downtown. I...

This was our second stay at this B&B. It does not disappoint. Beautifully decorated with just the right amount quirkiness that makes it totally Asheville. It's also a great place to stay if you like to travel with your dog. (the Inn is very well maintained….there are no animal odors!) The staff is well informed and happy to suggest restaurants...

I was disappointed with my stay at this B&B. Initially it made a favorable impression: it is decorated beautifully, particularly in the dining area. The rooms are named after flowers, and some of the décor is exquisite. That said, I was disappointed with the customer service aspect. We arrived late and left early the next day, failing to note that... More

We spent a weekend there and it was a wonderful visit. The house is well-maintained with several rooms of various sizes and descriptions. The main house has 6 or so rooms and there is a separate carriage house with a few more. Coffee, tea and fruit are always available and the breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The staff is small... More

We were greeted by Amanda, the manager of the property. She was gracious and very informative about the property. We stayed in the Magnolia Room on the second floor. The queen size bed was very comfortable and the bath had a great shower. The ceiling of the room had gathered fabric that radiated from above the ceiling fan our to... More

Just got back from a long weekend trip to Asheville with my mom and sister. We stayed 3 nights at the Black House in the Lilac Room. It was a fine experience, but would probably try another place on our next trip to Asheville. The pros: The super-friendly staff was probably the best part of our stay. Everyone was so... More
