“25th Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Fantastic! It was our first B&B and exactly what we were looking for. It is a beautiful old house with high ceilings and lots of wood floors and walls. We stayed in the Mary Hoyt room for three nights and it was huge. The TV was old and tiny, but we only used it to check weather. If we wanted modern accoutrements, we would have stayed somewhere else. Claw foot tub/shower was a nice touch. Cheryl and Gretchen were wonderful hosts. Every restaurant they recommended was perfect, from "Papa's and Beer" next to the K-Mart, to Corner Kitchen near Biltmore. I can't say enough about the 2 (sometimes 3) course gourmet breakfast that resulted in a very late lunch. Afternoon treats like Mexican wedding cookies and other bite-sized delights spoiled us. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting in one of the 2 common areas chatting with other guests. If this is not your thing, privacy is easy to achieve. We didn't get around to walking all of the grounds, but what we did see was beautiful. Access to Biltmore and downtown Asheville was easy. Oh yeah, the price was very reasonable. We will certainly return (well before our 50th)!

I cannot recommend Honey Hill Inn and Cabins enough. We stayed in the Looking Glass cabin for four days and three nights this past weekend for our second wedding anniversary and had such a good experience that we spent more time in our lodgings than we did sightseeing! The property is breathtaking, the owners (Sheryl and Gretchen) are warm and welcoming (and then hands-off unless we needed something--and we didn't), and the view is spectacular. We had a nice balance of meals in Asheville and meals cooked in the cabin's well-stocked kitchen. The silence was golden and refreshing and we particularly enjoyed a very short walk to a lovely and secluded spot where brightly colored Adirondack chairs afforded us a peaceful place to watch the sun go down. I couldn't have been more pleased with their attention to detail and the cleanliness. We are planning a return trip in just a few months.

Room Tip: We love the cabins! A short walk to the inn if you choose the gourmet breakfast option but secluded...

My husband and I were so very fortunate to have found Honey Hill after a less than desirable experience somewhere else. Sheryl and Gretchen, along with their attentive staff made our stay around Asheville a pleasant and relaxing experience. Every evening felt like "coming home." I can't say enough about the wonderful and scrumptious breakfast each morning. There were days we even skipped lunch!
We will be back!
PS The bed was so comfortable as well.

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary in the WNC area and lucked out at finding Honey Hill Inn in Candler. The property is absolutely gorgeous inside and out and there are so many special personal touches that made the stay absolutely lovely. Gretchen is an excellent chef and prepared beautiful breakfasts each day we were there. Cheryl was a great front of house host and made us feel welcome at every moment. We loved the chocolates and cookies upstairs that we enjoyed each night. My husband appreciated the keurig and I was grateful for diet cokes in the mini fridge. The bed was super comfy and we slept great both nights. We both highly recommend it!

Honey Hill is a wonderful bed and breakfast and is very convenient to Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway, and even Waynesville. We stayed in the top floor suite -- it is terrific - very spacious, quiet, and comfortable. The whole place is spotless with a lot of attention to detail. Cheryl and Gretchen are terrific hosts -- we felt right at home. Gretchen could have her own show on Food Network - she is that good of a chef! Homemade and fresh ingredients - the maple pecan encrusted bacon and stuffed French toast were incredible!!

We loved our stay in the cozy Balsam cabin with it's gorgeous views of the mountains. The location to Asheville was an easy 18 minutes so getting groceries at the co-op or going out for dinner was a breeze. The location also made it really easy to get to the Biltmore (which exceeded our expectations) and to the Blue Ridge Parkway...but we also enjoyed ample sit-around-the-cabin-being-lazy time! Most of all, we adored Cheryl and Gretchen! Their generous spirits and amazing breakfasts fed our hearts as well as our bellies! A true pleasure all around!

We stayed in one of their cabins for a week. The setting is beautiful, and the location is very good. The innkeepers are very nice and want you to enjoy their property. The cabin was immaculate and well suited for our vacation.

Room Tip: We stayed in "Blue Ridge" cabin and thought it was probably the quietest. Beautiful view t...
