We stayed at the Cedar Crest Inn in four nights in June. In the Asheville area, staying at a hotel is not much cheaper than opting for a bed and breakfast, so we thought this inn to be a good value considering you get breakfast, snacks and a more charming atmosphere. We really liked the Tower Room, where we stayed for two nights, however, we did not realize how hot it would be in there. We enjoyed breakfast each day. My suggestion to the staff though would be to serve a menu with greater variety. Each day the breakfast was generally the same - fruit, a muffin and a variation of eggs. We stayed in Guest Cottage 2 for half of our visit, and we found it a lot more spacious although less the charm of the Tower Room. One other plus - we got the package that included tickets to the Biltmore House, which we found to be a good deal versus buying the tickets alone. We would certainly stay here for future trips.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Perched on a hillside just three blocks from the entrance of the Biltmore, Cedar Crest Inn Asheville's finest bed and breakfast is one of the largest and most opulent residences surviving from the 1800s. Downtown Asheville is just a mile away from our "Pink Lady," and the Blue Ridge Parkway is just four miles away. ... more less
