As an older woman traveling alone, I place a premium on comfort and safety. The supremely comfortable room in this lovely old home is located in a residential neighborhood, an easy walk from downtown Asheville. Besides the ambiance, hosts James and Susan overlooked no detail in the appointment of the room and the common areas. Both the breakfast and late... More

This is an A#1 experience all the way. Every detail is attended to. Susan and James make it look effortless however you know that it is anything but! I wish we had more time there to laze on the porch. It is the most warm, welcoming environment. You can tell these folks put their love and full attention into everything... More

Carolina B & B was a fantastic find! The property is beautiful, house and rooms are beautifully decorated and clean! The wine and appetizers in the early evening was a pleasant surprise and a great way to meet other guests. The breakfast was superb! We were so fortunate to find such a great spot. Please give it a try, you... More

James & Susan provided a first class experience from the wonderful gourmet breakfast to the wine and home made appetizers at 5:30PM and the home made desert in your room when you returned home for the evening. There attention to detail is amazing.

Our first trip for Ashville was made perfect by this lovely and comfortable B & B. James and Susan are superior hosts who attend graciously to their guests and do everything possible to assure comfort and enjoyment. We enjoyed Miss Webb's room and the spacious common areas open to all guests. We couldn't have been more pleased and will surely... More

Tucked away in a beautiful, historic section of Ashville is the Carolina B' and B. Each room is named for a southern feature. We were in the "Robin Nest's" room. It was a big, beautifully and elegantly appointed king size room on the second floor at one corner of the house. Big windows surrounded us and I spent a lot... More

My first choice for lodging when I travel are B and B's, and Carolina Bed and Breakfast is at the top of my list! Our group consisted of myself with three daughters and their three daughters for a long weekend of visting Biltmore Mansion, exploring Asheville's wonderful restaurants, unusual shops and varied hiking. We were in three rooms including the... More

My husband and I stayed in the goldfinch room and found it to be very comfortable. The king size bed was heavenly. The nights were a little chilly so we enjoyed the fireplace. The food was excellent and a great variety. The afternoon wine and canapes were delicious. James was very helpful with tickets and directions to Biltmore. We would... More

This was our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and we couldn't have been more satisfied! James was the perfect host, always making sure we knew how to get where we were going. Susan is a fantastic cook and the breakfasts were phenomenal! The rooms were inviting and very comfortable. We will definitely be back!
