This is a wonderful place!! We were visiting the area for a mix of business and relaxation. This fit the bill perfectly - quiet, clean, comfortable rooms with a fantastic breakfast! But what made this visit so special were the owners - Dan & Lynn. They were very welcoming and made us feel at home. They asked about our plans... More

Dan and Lynn make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are well done and clean. The breakfast was incredible. Parking can be a challenge. The provide and ornament at the breakfast table for you to decorate. They then will use the ornament for the Christmas tree. This is a fun activity while you wait on breakfast.

My wife and I have traveled the world on business and pleasure. The Carriage House is our roots (she grew up nearby) and we cannot say enough about it. We never comment or review online, having been first adopters of every new technology as part of our jobs, but, we break that rule here. On our last visit, a young... More

My husband and I chose this place because of the amazing reviews for our weekend trip to Chimney Rock-we can understand why now! When we first checked in, we were met by Dan. All though I was excited about staying, I was a tad nervous about breakfast since I do have some foods I need to steer clear of. Dan... More

We stayed at Carriage house for 2 nights as we had a wedding to go too in Rutherfordton. Days were 19th-20th of April 2013. First Dan and Lynn (owners), made our stay so great. The room was very nice and reminded me of going to my Grandparent's in the 50's ! Our bed room was very nice and clean and... More

We stayed in the Coxe Room in Carrier Houses Bed and Breakfast for one night during our road trip in the middle of October. Very lovely house with warm and cosy old style room décor. One could spend the whole day going around and checking all small decorations and the details of the house. On a slightly negative note –... More

Thank you for your kind remarks. We are happy to say that the squeaky antique bed has been fixed and is providing a restful night’s sleep once again (with or without earplugs). We hope that you will have an opportunity to come back and see for yourself. If you decorated a Christmas ornament while you were here, you may view... More

I visited family in North Carolina recently and stayed with Dan and Lynn at their wonderful B&B. I must say, I could not have had a better experience! I stayed in the Coxe room. It was so cozy and comfortable . . . furnished with beautiful antiques befitting the 1800's era of the houses. Dan and Lynn are fantastic hosts.... More

Southern hospitality is the key at Carrier. I was here in early December. The hallway and my room were tastefully decorated for Christmas. Fresh ice water, hot cider and cookies were available in the evening. Breakfast was delicious. Room was very pleasant. Bathroom was small. Hosts were most welcoming and offered their help if there were any issues. Carrier Houses... More
