My husband and I set out to find a nice place to stay in the Asheville area just to beat the heat of Columbia, S.C. Oh, did we find that and so much more! We found our happy place at Hawk and Ivy! Our new friends Eve, James and tour guide Garreth, the corgi, instantly became our old friends. It... More

The Hawk and Ivy is a healing experience. Eve and James are generous, gracious, tender, competent, fascinating! Breakfast came in several courses, much of it taken from their vast garden. Our accomodations were spacious and comfortable. We had everything we needed. We will definitely stay again, and, in fact, would travel back just to stay there. Wonderful!

I characterize comfort food as that which is delicious, unpretentious, and and makes me feel good and that is how I would describe both the accommodations and the owners/hosts of The Hawk & Ivy. Our room (second floor cottage) was not grand or sumptuous, but instead just plain comfortable. Eve and James have equipped the quarters with everything you need... More

My friends and I decided to go zip lining at Navitat in Asheville and they recommended Hawk & Ivy. James and Eve made us feel like family...they prepared a gourmet breakfast each morning and we sat with the other guests like family. Even Eve and James joined us!! It was so very special. The rooms were absolutely delightful. Each morning,... More

My wife and I stayed at Hawk and Ivy on a recent trip to the Asheville area. At first we were a little concerned by how far from downtown Asheville it is (about a 15-20 minute drive), but once we arrived, we were charmed. Gareth, the owners' dog, greeted us and also served as our guide to Eve's lovely hillside... More

Eve and James are the perfect Hosts at this charming Paradise with Gardens, Views, and Peace and Quiet. The wedding site and ceremony was perfect, after a Bountiful Breakfast with coffee and conversation, while hummingbirds flitted in and out of the window flowers for all to exclaim over. The Beauty quiets you, the comfortable beds sooth you, and then...off you... More

My partner and I spent a long weekend at the Hawk and Ivy and were absolutely blown away with the amazing quality of our time there. The upstairs suite that we had was spacious, comfortable, and had a brilliant deck to watch the fireflies and sip early morning coffee. Our breakfasts with the other guests and the charming hosts, James... More

It's hard to describe how wonderful a stay at the Hawk and Ivy can be. The first time my husband and I stayed at the Hawk and Ivy was back in 1995, not too long after Eve and James Davis opened their B & B. After 19 years, we just returned to North Carolina this week for a visit and... More

Our children bought us a two night stay and Hawk and Ivy, so for our anniversary we booked the weekend. We were met by James and later met Eve, both very charming and knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast was at 9:00 AM and meals were delightful and not what I expected, all are healthy and most items locally grown. We... More

We chose to stay at Hawk and Ivy for our anniversary get-away to Asheville primarily because of the proprietors' commitment to meet specific dietary requirements of their guests. In our case, my wife is GF, and James and Eve made certain that each breakfast was not only stunningly presented, absolutely delicious and bounteous enough to get us through to dinner... More
