I brought my mother to the NC mountains hoping for a memorable experience and thanks to Acorn's innkeeper, Gene, my mother was treated with royalty. She is a huge Mickey Mouse fan, so Gene placed Mickey collectibles in her room each day and even served her Mickey Waffles for breakfast one morning. What a pleasant surprise to arrive back to...

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend while we attended a wedding in the Asheville area. Gene was very diligent in answering all the questions we had prior to arrival and most helpful with directions and things to do. He and Bob were so pleasant and easy to talk to. Breakfast was amazing each day and more than... More

My husband and I stayed here a few weeks ago. I needed a place to stay that was near Asheville but also something that felt like home in order to study for my pharmacy law board exam the next morning. While staying here at the bed-and-breakfast the owner was amazing and did all that he could to make it feel... More

We stayed at Acorn Bed & Breakfast for 3 evenings in July. Gene contacted us before arriving to understand when we would be arriving. Our room was ready when we got there, greeted by a sign that welcomed us at the front door. We had a room with a bathroom down the hallway which was our own. Our bed was... More

Spent part of July 4 weekend at this Bead & Breakfast. The Rose Room is beautiful with comfortable queen bed. Decor is immaculate. Breakfast, both mornings, was delicious, and more than enough for any hunger pains. Each day was met with Coffee, Smoothie (different flavors each day), Fruit Appetizer, and Main Entree -- all freshly prepared on site by Gene.... More

Stayed here while on a business trip and loved it! Host was delightful, met us at our car, carried our bags in, and chatted warmly. Breakfast was outstanding--Belgian waffles, fresh fruit smoothie, fresh fruit bowl (7 fruits!), breakfast skewers, pastries.......yummy! The Magnolia Room was an excellent choice. Tastefully decorated, very clean, and full of little surprises, like cookies and chocolates... More

Gene took excellent care of my daughter, my wife and me. We had a downstairs room which allowed us a little private space. We were asked when we wanted breakfast and when we arrived upstairs the next morning..voila! His breakfast smoothies are delicious, the rhubarb jam was kind of addictive, and the breakfast was great as other reviews promised. Gene... More

Comfortable, welcoming, and quiet are the three things that quickly come to mind when thinking of the Acorn BNB. Close to everything, hosts knowledge of the area (dining, places to go, things to do...), and location to all the "sites" ideal. Stayed for 3 nights and we were sorry we had to leave. HIGHLY recommend - not only the bed... More
