We recently stayed at the Carolina Bed and Breakfast in Asheville. It was lovely. James, one of the owners was great. I don't think we met Susan- maybe briefly. He was helpful with suggestions for activities and restaurants. The breakfasts were delicious. As were the wine and appetizers in the p.m. Great surprise. The main part of the house was... More

We had one of the best weekend trips ever thanks to Susan and James. The neighborhood is very charming and quiet. Very close to downtown Asheville. The rooms are cosy and with a lot of character. The food is excellent. We will surely return!

Out of this world service, hospitality, and food. The food you will receive here is not only an amazing breakfast, but also a full assortment of homemade hor d'oeuvres and wine in the afternoon. Susan also leaves some homemade sweets in each room in the evening, and James helps each person tailor his/her day's sightseeing, restaurants, etc. He is a... More

The Carolina Bed and Breakfast must be one of the best, if not the best, B & B in Asheville. My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our 3-night stay. Susan and James welcomed us warmly and were a mine of information during our stay. The staff was always very helpful and efficient. The house and the grounds were... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Carolina Bed and Breakfast on a recent trip to Asheville. The house and grounds were lovely and James was very welcoming and friendly. Our room (the Goldfinch Room) was lovely and the bed was very, very comfortable. The bath salts for the bathtub were another nice touch! We also enjoyed the... More

We can't say enough good things about how much we enjoyed our stay at the Carolina B&B and how gracious James was as a host. We were rained on literally every minute of our visit, but staying at such a charming inn made it feel a great vacation despite the soaking. We stayed in the Mockingbird room and my in-laws... More

We spent a great weekend at the Carolina Bed and Breakfast. It's a lovely bed and breakfast tucked away in a beautiful historic district and convenient to downtown Asheville. The breakfasts were scrumptious, the wine and hor d'oeuvres delicious, but the the clincher is the warmth and the hospitality of the innkeepers, Susan and James. They go out of their... More

We just spent four nights at the Carolina B&B. Everything was first class. Susan prepared breakfasts, social hour canapes and evening baked treats that were all gourmet quality. James was incredibly helpful in guiding our activities and restaurant selections. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. The grounds were well maintained and lovely. We would return there... More

Such a lovely home that this couple shares with their guests. The morning meal is more than worth getting out of your comfortable room. Evening beverages with some of the greatest snacks and opportunity to catch up with the days activities were a highlight each evening. Questions on places for dinner, how to get someplace, etc. if you want a... More

Carolina B & B is wonderful. James and Susan have created a delightful garden with a path between the parking area and the house. They have also made the front porch a pleasant, comfortable place to drink coffee, read the newspaper, and meet other guests. During our stay, James graciously helped us with our hiking plans, offered great restaurant suggestions,... More
