Summary Epitome of Southern hospitality wrapped up in a charming house less than two miles from Downtown Asheville. If having a sumptuous breakfast in the morning after resting the day's toils away in a cozy room sounds like your kind of hotel experience, look no further. Service Reservation can be done easily online and emails are always answered within 48... More

We would highly recommend this B & B. We were warmly greeted, given a well thought out tour of the home including the 24 hour pantry stocked w/ goodies & drinks. Our suite was warm inviting & romantic & the breakfast was yummy. Very thoughtful unitrusive hosts who provided a cozy soft place to land!

Great B&B with owners who truly enjoy managing a B&B. Jim is a great host and chef. Home is in good repair. Views on the internet are accurate. In a very nice neighborhood, close to downtown. Excellent restaurants nearby.

We rang the doorbell and were greeted by Cedric (the cute white terrier) and his owners, Linda and Jim. Within minutes, we knew we had found a wonderful place to spend our weekend. The room was perfect, and the breakfasts were amazing. Thank you so much, Jim and Linda!

This B&B was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Our room was large, with a Queen Bed and sitting area with small tv. The breakfasts were terrific, one day an asparagus, roasted red pepper and prosciutto crepe with hollandaise sauce and the next day was an apple cranberry pancake. Both came with fruit on the side and both were homemade. Delicious! Our... More

Stayed two nights and had a great experience. What a friendly and warm welcome to such a romantic location. The room was beautiful and had absolutely everything you could possibly want including a bowl of chocolates. Each morning there was a tray of fresh coffee outside the door, Thanks, and the breakfast was delicious (five strs for sure). I will... More
