We have been to the Red Rocker many times but this time has been the best yet! The inn keepers Jenny and Doug are wonderful and their wonderful family help to keep things going right along side them. There is always someone around if you need something but you don't feel like they hover over you. It is wonderful sitting... More

My husband and I had only one night to stay at the Red Rocker Inn but wish we had more! The front porch welcomes you with, yes, red rocking chairs and a porch swing! We checked in at 2:00 (earlier than most) and had a snack of homemade cookies. Soft drinks and water always available too. This gave us the... More

We spent one night at the inn and would have loved to stay longer. The breakfast was beyond great. Best grits I have ever had. Owners are great. Rooms are each unique and fun. The front porch and front area are also very nice. The owners were helpful and available. The inn is very conveniently located. We had only a... More

14 members of my family met here and had an absolutely marvelous time! We all loved our rooms, and found the service to be terrific. There was a small room right beside the living room where we gathered both nights, and it was such a wonderful experience. Breakfast is unbelievable! There is a buffet, with one egg dish featured per... More

This was my first visit to a B&B and it could not have been any better! Doug and his wife are very warm and gracious to all of their guests and visitors. The food is excellent and would definitely return for just the food alone. The rooms are quite spacious, quiet and appointed very well. The location of the Red... More

Thirty one years ago, we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at The Red Rocker Inn. as happens, as the years past, life and sometimes, lack of money got in the way of anniversary celebrations. But, this year, June 29, for our 56th, at the last moment we decided to see if there were any vacancies. Needless to say it worked... More

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The innkeepers are very nice and accommodating. It was very relaxing to sit on the front porch and unwind. The food at the inn is outstanding. I believe it is the best "inn" food we have ever had!!

My fiancé and I spent the evening on Saturday Night, June 13, 2015. The B&B is so beautiful and quiet right in the neighborhood of Black Mountain. Doug and Jenny are very helpful and not only is this a great place to stay, they have a five star restaurant on the premises. Very relaxing and walking distance to the main... More

Friends strongly recommended the Red Rocker Inn when we mentioned our trip to see the Biltmore Estate. Just a short drive away from the Biltmore, the Inn is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood of Black Mountain. Check in was handled by one of the owners. He explained the facility and also was able to provide discounted tickets for our... More

Hello Friend! Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice and well-thought out review. We're so glad you took the advice of your friend and that you enjoyed your stay here. At first, I was puzzled about the "tilted floor" comment you left, but I think you may be right! Sometimes you get a little quirkiness in... More
