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

Asheville and the Hawk and Ivy were our first experience of Carolina. And we loved it. James and Eve could not have been more thoughtful, kind and friendly. Breakfast was something to look forward to every morning, imaginative and delicious. Our little cottage appartment was warm and comfortable and our pre-breakfast and evening walks around the estate with Gareth, the... More

My sister and I stayed at Hawk and Ivy for a week in October 2013. The grounds are beautiful and just a short and pretty drive from the vibrant city of Asheville. It was the owners Eve and James that made our stay magical. Each morning over our delightful breakfast they helped us plan our day. Each recommendation they made... More

We've stayed at Hawk and Ivy several times since 2007. Each visit has been a special experience--from the beautiful flowers in our room, to the half and half for our morning coffee in the fridge--James and Eve have thought of every detail. They have created a truly special place. The breakfast is not only beautiful but also delicious. The grounds... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay two nights at the Hawk & Ivy while visiting our son. Eve and James are great hosts--you feel as if you are in the home of relatives that you REALLY like to visit. Our room, in the main house, was very comfortable, exceptionally clean, with fresh flowers to welcome us. Breakfast... More

The accommodations were very nice, breakfast was outstanding and the inn keepers very knowledgable about the area. All of their food recommendations were excellent. Would definitely stay here should I return to Asheville!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Hawk and Ivy. Come immerse yourself in a place of great beauty that nurtures both body and spirit. We are Asheville’s oldest eco bed and breakfast with a deep commitment to offering an experience that is green, sustainable, and honors the sacredness of all life. Our 1910 Farmhouse and guest cottage are filled with treasured family antiques, fine paintings and crafts. Lovely all cotton linens and down comforters cover the beds. Eve fills the rooms with fresh flowers and plants to create a feeling of simple elegance and comfort. A stroll on our 24 acres reveals wildflower meadows, mountain views, a pond with gazebo, and our magical, renovated barn, a perfect place for weddings, large events, or just a quiet cup of coffee watching for wild turkeys or deer in the meadow. The heart of the bed and breakfast is our organic gardens, nurturing both the body and soul with fresh flowers, herbs, vegetables, and delicious berries. Our guests rave about their healthy gourmet breakfasts where those berries and vegetables are served with local eggs and home cooked muffins. Eve is a life long gardener and highly published garden and floral designer. For the last two years she has been the chairman of Slow Food Asheville. We proudly take responsibility for being a Slow Food Bed and Breakfast, serving food which is locally grown and in season. We offer a perfect balance for those who wish to retreat in a rural setting and yet enjoy easy access to the restaurants and cultural offering of Asheville. We are so close to Asheville (20 minutes) and yet a world apart. ... more   less
