Despite the bad weather we had this weekend, our stay at the Inn on Mill Creek couldn't have been better. I couldn't disagree more with the one negative review on this site. Dave and Brigette were extremely hospitable hosts - walking that fine line between being friendly/welcoming and feeling like they had to talk constantly so that guests couldn't get away (we've had that happen). The breakfasts were AMAZING - there is just no other way to put it. The food wasn't only inventive - it was hearty and just plain delicious.
As for the room, they were very spacious and more modern than most B&Bs. They also had some wonderful views of the mountains and the lake on the property. The bed in our room was also by far the most comfortable bed we've slept in at a B&B. There were even different types of pillows for those who like fluffier/softer pillows vs. "higher" pillows.
This is a great place to get away for a while - close enough to Asheville to have your pick of restaurants and activities, but far enough away from any real "city" life to feel relaxed. The town of Black Mountain is also quaint and comfortable - with a fantastic chocolate shop (Chocolate Gems) and wine market (Merry Wine Market).
We would highly recommend Inn on Mill Creek and hope to return soon.
