Our second summer to visit the Carolina B & B. My husband and I were pleased that we received the same outstanding accommodations as last time. The facility is comfortable, quiet and in a beautiful neighborhood that begs you to explore during an early morning walk. James and Susan are the perfect innkeepers - always concerned with making sure their... More

Our hosts, James and Susan have set the bar extremely high for those B&B's around theirs. It was our first visit to the circa 1901 Carolina B&B and we were very pleased at how much attention was given to the most minute details. Every morning Susan presented us with a delightful breakfast, she can really make the magic happen. While... More

This was a return visit to the Carolina Bed and Breakfast in Asheville NC and it was like returning home. From the very beginning of our visit the owners James and Susan do everything possible to make us feel like we are a part of the family in a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The house is immaculate, well appointed and... More

This was our second trip (my husband & me) and it was just as amazing as our first visit! Located a convenient 15minute walk from downtown Asheville in a lovely neighborhood, our room was immaculate, beautifully appointed & SO comfortable. The "house" is beautifully decorated with period pieces and is comfortable and spotless. Susan & James are the perfect host/hostess... More

Gracious and helpful. Our room use so beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious every day and wonderful appetizers in the late afternoon with local wines. The owners were very informative and helpful with suggestions on where to eat locally and sights to see in Asheville. If, or when, we visit Asheville again, we will definitely stay at the Carolina B&B... More

Very impressed by the many 'points of difference' - evening drinks on the porch, gourmet hors d' oeuvres, gourmet breakfast, comfy rooms , James ' willingness to provide advice and directions on local attractions, close to downtown in a tree- lined street . Very enjoyable stay for us ( 2 couples from Australia )

Susan and James are extraordinary hosts. They create a warm and inviting atmosphere for guests and provide thoughtful and helpful attention to all. Gourmet breakfasts accommodate everyone's dietary issues without fuss and nightly wine socials create a wonderful way to meet others while traveling. The home is well appointed and comfortable and we wouldn't hesitate to book another stay if... More

My wife and I stayed at the Carolina B&B in Asheville NC for 2 nights over the recent Memorial Day holiday. We have stayed in many B&Bs over the years and this is one of the very best. The house is beautiful and our guest room had all the features one could desire. Two things set it apart: First our... More

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at this charming Inn, and are already talking about planning a return trip. There were so many details which made our stay memorable: the hospitality of Susan and James; the ambiance among the guests; the outstanding food; and a lovely, comfortable room. But perhaps the best part of the day was Hor... More

An add-on to HelenCSmith review. I eat quiche when forced to. I think it heavy. Susan's breakfast quiche floated off my fork it was so light and fluffy. The wine and hors d'oeuvres were on the same plane, which if memory serves me, included stuffed mushrooms, aparagus tarts w/ cheese, lemon bars, and others. We've stayed at many a B&B... More
