My wife and I just enjoyed our 2nd stay in the last couple years at Carolina B&B and we're again very pleased with everything. James, Susan and the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast and afternoon snacks were delicious and plentiful. The location is great for exploring Asheville. We honestly can't think of anything... More

I'll make this short. The location is great. Walking distance from downtown. Rooms are nice. Breakfast is wonderful. Wine and appetizers served at 5:30 and a special "treat" left in your room each night. Susan and James are the perfect hosts. Susan is a great cook and James is very knowledgable about the area. He's very patient and happy to... More

My sister, my son and I stayed for 5 days at the Carolina B&B while we visited a sister who lives in Asheville. We stayed in both the Cottage and the Robin's Nest. We liked them both, but loved the feeling of being in the house. The Carolina was immaculate. Clean is a major value for us, so we were... More

We enjoyed ourselves so much we stayed an extra night. Susan and James are excellent hosts who make you feel like you are their only guest. The food is amazing. Susan is a master at pairing unique flavors. We plan to return.

My best friend and I stayed at Carolina B&B while we enjoyed a girls weekend in Asheville. It was truly perfect. The room, the people, the house, the porch....the FOOD! We were in walking distance to the downtown area. Easy driving distance to the Biltmore. I will definitely be returning and I will recommend it to everyone I know. Our... More

We stayed at the Carolina Bed and Breakfast for a long weekend. The three nights we spent at the inn was perfect in every way. Between James' intimate knowledge of every corner of Asheville and the surrounding sights to Susan's absolutely wonderful breakfast and evening hor dourves, the stay at the inn was really the cornerstone of the great weekend...

First - The Carolina is nestled intimately in a cute little neighborhood walking distance from downtown! Second - We extended our stay so we got a chance to stay in both a main house room and the private cottage. Both were exceedingly intimate, clean, well equipped, quiet and perfect for a romantic stay. Third - Susan is an unbelievable cook,... More

we stayed at Carolina B&B in the Goldfinch Room for 4 nights in late June 2015; we enjoyed the happy hour wine and snacks - especially as it gave the opportunity to meet other guests and share experiences; breakfasts were good and very innovative. Coffee, team and water were always available, plus excellent cookies. James was able to give us... More

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

We went here for our anniversary trip. This was our first stay at a B&B. It was a pleasant stay, quiet and relaxed. The room was clean and well maintained. The owners were friendly and accessible. Breakfast was delicious, and the other guests were friendly.
