Comfortable rooms, common space, in a house with some history. Nice breakfast (a little sweet, but hey, it’s the south), friendly hosts, afternoon wine and hors d’oeuverves, attractive neighborhood, walkable to downtown (with a little effort).

This is about 5th time we have stayed at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast. Diana and Kevin pay attention to every detail. There is always a personal greeting and orientation with evening wine and appetizers. The rooms are pretty and comfortable - great bed and sheets. Breakfast is always delicious and plentiful and they have the best coffee and a wide variety of teas are offered. You can’t go wrong at the Carolina B&B!!

Having stayed at many B & Bs, Carolina Bed & Breakfast is one of our top experiences. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts Diana and Kevin are welcoming, personable, and gracious. We stayed in the Hummingbird Room which was so inviting and relaxing. The breakfasts and evening hors d' oeuvres were so delicious and out of the ordinary. We looked forward to each morning and evening, delicious food and a chance to visit with the other guests as well as the owners, Diana and Kevin. Great added details were the tasty treats left in our room and the cookie jar filled with fantastic "you can't eat just one" cookies. We will definitely stay at Carolina Bed & Breakfast when in the Asheville area again.

Another enjoyable visit to the Carolina B & B! We always feel at home here. Our room is so cozy, comfortable, quiet and clean. The fireplace is always wonderful! We always look forward to the afternoon social which includes fabulous appetizers and wine, as well as great conversations. The breakfasts are creative, so good and filling. There are always homemade cookies, a keurig machine and other drinks available anytime you want. Plus there is a treat waiting for you by your bedside at night. They are only a 5 minute walk to some local great restaurants and a 15 minute walk to downtown. No need to take your car and find parking! Kevin and Diana are wonderful hosts and truly know how to make your visit spectacular! Diana makes the most awesome overnight cold oatmeal too! Looking forward to another visit! Paul and Denise

Thank you so much Denise and Paul for this fabulous review! It was wonderful to have the two of you here with us in the quiet month of January so that we could really enjoy spending some quality 1 on 1 time with you. Also, just to clarify for our future potential guests reading these reviews, Paul specifically asked me for an oatmeal breakfast for one of the mornings, so I did an really great overnight oats recipe for him, which you both really loved. I don't want people to wonder why I'm serving a cold oatmeal. Hilarious! I promise that the food here at the Carolina is always scrumptious and breakfasts are usually a hot delicious meal! We can't wait to see you both again. Come back soon! Until then, wishing you both all the very best! Diana and Kevin xo

They were wonderful! I even found out the owner and I went to the same alma mater! Super small world! We truly had a wonderful stay with them, and really enjoy the evening happy hour and late night desserts waiting for us in our rooms. The breakfast was delicious every morning as well, and they had an awesome assortment of tea, especially tea for us decaf people. I really appreciated their hospitality.

Thank you so much Jessica for your wonderful review! It was so great to meet you and Bryant! I'm very happy that you picked us for your visit to Asheville. I know I said it while you were here, but I'll say it again, thank you to Bryant (and also to you too Jessica) for your service to our country. As a military family ourselves (Marines, Air Force, Guard and Navy) we are incredibly grateful for all that you two do. That's why we offer a military discount here at the Carolina as our way to say thank you. Can't wait to see you both again. Until we do see you, sending all of our very best wishes to you. Diana and Kevin xo
