My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary at this unique bed and breakfast. Tom (the inn keeper) is a fun, friendly, and slightly sarcastic individual. He is very hands-on and truly cares about his guests. He's ready and willing to advise you on where to eat and play on your visit. He is a French trained chef and... More

We had made reservations months in advance. We needed some down time from our jobs and the heat in South Carolina. We left home that morning when one of my sons had a emergency that I had to help with. When I finally got back to my phone there was a message from Tom the Terrible. Tom informed us that... More

Thanks to the guests I have realized that not only did they have a bad day I added to it for which there is no excuse. My apologies. My bad day was no where near the one they had and I certainly had no right to take mine out on them. Yes I normally go to bed early as 4:30... More

We too read the reviews...but glad we booked! The cottage outback was perfect! We had a very comfy king sized bed in a separate room with great furnishings. The cottage has a tv in the bedroom and the living room. All the furnishings clean and comfy. The privacy fantastic! The gardens very pretty and we sat out on a swing... More

My husband and I recently spent two nights here (Mountain Side room). After reading reviews, we must admit, we were a bit nervous about our experience. They could not have been more off. We checked in just fine and dropped our things in the room and then headed out on foot to downtown. It was a short walk. The way... More

Stayed one night and had a great time. Owner is a character, room is nice (mattress was pretty firm only downside), breakfast was amazing!!! Owner is a great chef and makes one hell of a breakfast!! Would have liked a list of the house rules since this was our first bnb and there was a lot of information.

For my husband and me, even though we are fans of older homes, the primary joy of staying at a B&B is meeting and visiting with other guests and getting to know our hosts. We have stayed in many B&B's over the years, and almost every host has been more than personable, interesting to talk to and helpful and accommodating.... More

We thank the guests for their very good comments. Tom does eel bad for any misunderstanding of voice tone from the first calls. Yes we were on vacation but that should only improve tone in most cases. I did injure a toe while on vacation and was still wearing special boot when they arrived and getting up and down was...

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!

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.
