What can I say - AMAZING!!!! From the moment we checked in, everything was wonderful. Me and my partner came up to get married and found this incredible Inn, almost by accident. We signed up for the elopePLUS package and added the photography. The house is beautifully decorated and was like taking a walk back in time. We loved the... More

David is a gracious host and when you travel as much as I do for business it is wonderful to find somewhere that doesn't feel like a plain motel. I highly recommend you try this B&B. An hour from Asheville and the Biltmore and a little over an hour from Cherokee NC and the Smoky Mountains.

We love staying in B&B and was very lucky to find such a gem so close to Converse College. The inn is located on an expansive piece of property with beautiful gardens and a wrap around porch to enjoy the quiet of the area. Our hosts were very helpful as to suggesting good restaurants and his choice of BIN 112... More

We also spent our wedding night at the Inn and there was an amazing attention to detail, that left us very impressed. Highly recommended! weather it be for a weekend getaway or a... More

Beautiful old southern home nestled among huge oak trees. Peaceful surroundings and the perfect place to kick back, relax and simply enjoy the atmosphere. Each room is well appointed and the Cookie Jar Bistro located within the B&B is the best place in town for a quiet lunch of soups, salads and sandwiches. The owners are simply lovely and make...

I love people who understand the importance of saving beautiful old homes - and the innkeepers at Walnut Lane Inn (Hoyt and David) are two of those people. As Hoyt so elegantly put it "We consider it an honor to take care of this house." Their dedication shows in every detail. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the grounds are gorgeous,... More

Hoyt and David are wonderful. I have had the bistro lunch a few times and also had a small elopement wedding there recently. The house and landscaping are beautiful and the food is great. I highly recommend this Inn for anything from a lunch to a wedding!

After reading some of the latest reviews, I turned to my husband and said, "Did they stay in the same B&B that we did?". From beginning to end, our stay at the Walnut Lane B&B could not have been any better. Hoyt greeted us and showed us around the charming victorian house. We worked out our morning coffee/breakfast schedule and... More

Four couples ventured to this out of the way B&B for a little getaway. The home is very nicely appointed and the bed rooms were roomy and comfortable. However, our room did not have a bathroom so we had to use the bath in the hallway. Each room had A/C and TV. The breakfasts were very nicely prepared. Accolades to... More

Hoyt D, Owner at Walnut Lane Inn, responded to this review

It is unfortunate that not all of the guests in this party did not post comments, as the other 3 rooms were very pleased. The arrival of this group was spread out over a 3 hour period, with everyone coming and going at sporadic times. As readers of the reviews, please note it is our goal to make all of... More
