Stayed at Oakland Cottage B and B December 1 till 5. I was not going to write a review as the person that I was traveling with (Ginny B.) did write one. We booked the place based on the positive reviews it had gotten, but we were very disappointed. We were met with peeling paint on the exterior of the...

We stayed at Oakland for our anniversary celebration and felt very welcomed! Homey and warm, the owner & previous owner (!) were gracious hosts. Breakfast was tasty every morning & very filling. Very centrally located between downtown and Biltmore. Room was a bit smaller than I'd anticipated, but very cozy. Will be a repeat customer!

This was our first stay here. We were met at the door by Steve ( an interim inn keeper). He showed us around and how to conquer the front door lock. The real surprise came the next morning with Steve's fabulous Praline french toast....YUM! This is a lovely old home in very good condition. The stay was made even better...

I'm not quite sure how to respond to this guest, or if I even should respond, except to say, take a look at all the 5 star reviews submitted by other guests who stayed at our B&B at the same time as "Ginny B."

Wonderful amenities with great hospitality! Truly no need to go out and get breakfast. The innkeeper is an extraordinary cook and we would put his breakfast up against any nearby restaurant. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

We had a wonderful stay at the historic Oakland Cottage. Steve was a kind and very friendly host, who made delicious and filling breakfasts both mornings. Our room, Rose #8, was clean, comfortable, and quiet; I actually only chose it on a sentimental whim because of the wallpaper (it reminded me of a place we stayed on our honeymoon) but...

Oakland Cottage provided exactly what we desired in a relaxing, quaint visit to Asheville. The location was on a quiet street that was a quick drive away from both downtown and Biltmore. The Dogwood Suite provided a charming atmosphere by being decorated authentically to the house. Steve was an excellent host who provided knowledgeable recommendations for experiencing the surrounding area...

We had a wonderful stay at the Oakland Cottage. The owners were super friendly, the breakfasts were delicious, and the room ( a 2 room suite) was very comfortable. It is located about a mile from downtown and from the Biltmore so it was really convenient. I highly recommend staying there. The price was very reasonable for Asheville, especially since...

We decided last minute to go to Asheville and I am so glad we found this little B&B. Holly and her husband we're very welcoming and made us feel right at home.
