We just enjoyed a long weekend at the Bent Creek Lodge in Asheville. The lodge itself is warm and inviting, as our its hosts, Jodee and Doug. Our room (Fern) was quiet and comfortable, and the breakfasts were great. Bent Creek Lodge is a great option for someone who likes the character of a smaller place but doesn't want to be smothered by hosts and other guests! It's a very relaxing and peaceful place in a beautiful setting, yet just minutes from downtown.

My husband suprised me with a first anniversary trip to Asheville, and he chose the Bent Creek Lodge for our accomodations. I am so glad he did. Everything at this B&B was top notch--the breakfasts, the setting (close to Asheville but the feeling of being remote), the relaxing atmosphere, and the bed (most comfortable we've ever slept in). We preferred its rustic, mission-style decorations to the typical B&B decorated with an abundance of floral fabrics and antiques. I would have posted pictures, but the photos I took look just like those posted on their website. We will return here when we visit Asheville again!

We just returned from a 2 night stay and would highly recommend Bent Creek Lodge. Jodee & Doug are wonderful hosts and make you feel like family from the moment you walk through the door.
The lodge is warm and inviting along with clean well kept rooms. There are common areas on each floor which make you feel like your in your own living room. Breakfast is exceptional and each floor has a deck with seating areas overlooking a garden and then on to woods.
Your just a short drive out of town but feel as though the city is miles away. Close to Biltmore Estate, shopping, restaurants, the NC Arboretum and The Blue Ridge Parkway.
We plan to go back sometime soon.

We were lucky enough to secure the last room left at 4:00 on a Sunday. The rooms are charming and clean, and the grounds are impeccable. Everything about the experience of staying there is warm and inviting, including the home-cooked breakfast in the morning. It's close to downtown Asheville, but far enough away to be a real retreat.

My husband and I were here with a group of friends (seven couples) and we LOVED it!!!
The innkeepers are great folks who do everything to make your stay a happy, comfortable one. They are full of information; and seem to know everything. Everyone enjoyed the views from the decks, the 'peace' being in the forest, the food that is delish', the comfortable rooms, the ''play/family areas'', the location---close to most everything.
Can you tell we will be back next year???

For an eye opener (you will have much respect and awe for the owners/builders of this beautiful wooden retreat in the forest) just look at the book of photos they have in the living area, that shows how they built this place!!!

The innkeepers are so very personable, the scenery is breathtaking, the rooms are cozy, and the food is absolutely scrumptious! This is one of our favorite places, we go again and again whenever we find a free moment. Try it once and I am sure you'll go back again! Every season gives something new to appreciate!
