Stayed here for the weekend with my wife and another couple. The house is nice and easy to get anywhere in town. The food was delicious! Tom and Michelle were fantastic. We will stay here again when we return to Asheville!

We stayed here last weekend with a group of 8 people. After reading all of the reviews I was nervous about Tom. I found Tom to be very nice and hospitable. He gave us recommendations on where to eat, tips on visiting the Biltmore and anything else that we asked. He was very accommodating and let us check in early... More

Reading these reviews, you have to wonder if people are so delicate, maybe they should just stay home? But I digress... Aberdeen Inn is located in a middle-class, non-HOA, non-cookie cutter neighborhood that you would find anywhere in the country. It is NOT a bad neighborhood. The Inn's grounds aren't manicured, but they are well maintained. The innkeeper Tom is....interesting.... More

We thank these guests for a very candid review. Yes it is an old house and yes some of the conversion from single family to B&B done in 1978 is wearing thin. We have done some updating as time and money have permitted. The guests are right I do not wear well with all the guests but I am trying... More

Tom the miserable "Innkeeper" should change his Mission Statement from - We want to always make our guests feel like it's your home away from home to We don't care! Our first impression of the Inn was a nasty phone call from Tom informing us we were late for check in and he wanted to go to bed (it was... More

We are truly sorry that the two guests did not like their stay at the Aberdeen Inn and obviously Tom. None of the food served to our guests is prepared in a microwave oven or bought already prepared. Yes I may prepare the food at 7:00 AM because there are going to be 12 for breakfast and yes I will... More

We went to the Aberdeen Inn on our anniversary, which was the least expensive of the B&Bs close to downtown Asheville. Our first experience with our host, Tom, was a little disappointing, but as we got to talk to him further, we found him to be very charming. Our breakfasts were truly "out of this world", and prepared very lovingly... More

The Aberdeen Inn sits in a not-so-nice neighborhood; however the grounds of the Inn are impeccable. There are flower boxes and roses, neatly trimmed lawns and a wrap around porch with comfortable furniture. The Inn is also very clean and our room was pretty. Tom, the Innkeeper, has a difficult personality that made breakfast time uncomfortable to say the least.... More

We are sorry that Greg and Sue were upset with My (Tom's) banter. We do have a policy of availability for guests to have breakfast earlier than the normal breakfast hour. All we ask is to be told the night before. We chide guests who skip breakfast because we want them to receive all that they have paid for. As... More

We wanted to see the Biltmore flowers in bloom, but found that most reasonable hotels were booked. Others wanted $300+ per night. We saw a couple of good reviews on Tripadvisor for the Aberdeen Inn, and decided to give it a try. I think that some of the reviewers who were put off by Tom, the owner, did not "get"... More

here for a early xmas trip with the family and we rented 4 separate rooms. The rooms were adequate but a little cluttered for my taste and that really applies to whole place. The location was ok and it was clean enough. I thought the host was a little obnoxious. He bragged about his culinary skills, but I found his... More

I wish I would have read the reviews about Tom, the host, before booking. But even that would not have prepared us for the misadventure. We arrived in the late afternoon to a looked door and called him. When he answered the door he said "We woke him up, but he probably would help us anyway." Really? That was his... More

I do apologize to this guest. I did awake from a nap and certainly should have been friendlier. Yes I do probably talk to much but there legal and others matters of safety that must be covered and possibly they asked question that got met started. I was wrong in the discussions of myself.

I stayed at Aberdeen Inn for 2 nights. This was my first visit to Asheville and to a small B&B. I was very happy with the Inn. My room was exactly as it looked on-line. The entire Inn was very clean. Loved the outdoor patio, and wrap around porch. Tom is a great cook! Loved the breakfast, cooking is Tom's... More
