The Cedar Crest Inn was a perfect retreat for a long weekend getaway. In fact, my long-time friend and I are now working to plan an extended stay with our families. The carriage house we stayed in could easily accommodate both our families with elegant comfort. The owners have spent a lot of time, money and care in upgrading the Inn and it's obvious.
The inn was immaculate and every room invited us to "sit a spell" and enjoy the fresh mountain air and get caught up. From the sitting room areas, to the lovely breakfast veranda, to our own secluded deck off of the carriage house, we felt at home.The living areas are beautifully decorated and the landscaping is like being in a southern garden.
The food was excellent! Breakfast was always a treat with something different served each morning and included fresh fruit and baked goods.
The Cedar Crest staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and very knowledgable about the area. They were very helpful in planning our adventures.
Finally, you couldn't pick a more central location in Asheville. It's right around the corner from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate, a short, straight-shot to funky downtown Asheville and a quick drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
It would be my first pick for a family vacation, romantic getaway or even for business. I can't wait to go back!
