I don't stay at many B &Bs but this place was top of the line for any inn. Service was very good. Room was spacious. Front porch and grounds felt like I was relaxing at home. I liked that our room and most others do not have TVs. We had dinner at their restaurant and breakfast...both very fantastic..not just your... More

Nice dinner and visit with friend. Unrushed and attentive waitress. It was so hard to decide on entree so we had trout and also ordered the spaghetti squash to share between us. The tomato bacon jam atop the trout was a nice addition and I could eat the pistachio whipped goat cheese which topped the spaghetti squash on anything. My... More

Our room, Three Mountaineers, was on the second floor. It was cozy and comfortably appointed. The friendly staff is efficient and service-oriented, and they made our stay extraordinarily comfortable. You need a table outside under the trees? Got it! If you're vegetarian, many good choices await you. You want a poached egg for breakfast? How do you like it, medium... More

The Red Rocker is an immaculate, comfortable and friendly place. We celebrated a family reunion there this week with 25+ family members and had a great time. Doug and Jenny were caring and accommodating of our groups' needs. The food was excellent, especially the desserts.

The Elizabeth Attic is the best room in the place. Most spacious with a personal fireplace up on 3rd floor so nice and private. The breakfast buffet was amazing with the best foods ever. The chef was perfect. It was great that they served dinner which again was a great meal. They have a full sized refrigerator/freezer for guests on... More

Very good food (roasted chicken is great); friendly, helpful staff; a ROCKIN dessert menu (8 regular items and one dessert of the month, which benefits local charities); and a fair price. Just what you'd expect from a place like this. Better make reservations--it's a busy place!

Inn is kept in excellent condition. It is very clean and feels like you are in a private home, your own. Rooms are comfortable, meals are delicious and owners/staff are very friendly and helpful. Only wish would be for a fuller pillow.

The Red Rocker Inn is a great place to relax, enjoy wonderful food and explore the Black Mountain/Asheville area. The owners and staff are the perfect hosts. Try Elizabeth's Attic room. It is a little more expensive than their other rooms but well worth the difference. (Huge garden tub: very large walk in shower and the large room is more... More

Looking for something other than a chain hotel, I stopped at the Red Rocker Inn when I was on my way to help my son move. It proved to be the perfect break in an otherwise fairly rugged week! After a long day on the road, I found my room to be charming, comfortable, and very clean. Doug, Jenny and... More
