“Loved it!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Beautiful house & grounds, immaculately maintained and very welcoming. Kristen is an amazing chef...the breakfasts were wonderful. Howard was incredibly helpful and hospitable. We stayed during a trip to the Biltmore estate and Dry Ridge Inn is only 11 minutes away (using Howard's directions). We would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mary on the first floor just by the front door...it was great and you'd think w...

You should have a rating beyond excellent. It is the only way to describe my wife's and my stay at Dry Ridge Inn this past weekend. tHE ROOM, THE MEALS AND THE HOSPITALITY EXCEEDED ALL OUR EXPECTATIONS.

Room Tip: Leave it up to Howard and Kristen. Their taste is impeccable.

My husband and I purchased land in Weaverville in 2012. We live in CT. We had a meeting with our architects last week and wanted to stay a few days in the community where we will retire. We are so glad we picked this lovely inn. The hospitality and willingness to share information about the town by The owners was appreciated and enjoyed. The rooms are beautiful, breakfast delightful, and they offer a snack basket and beverages throughout the day. Cindy and Manfred

Friendly, affordable, and delicious food! Stayed at the Dry Ridge Inn for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! The grounds are beautiful and well-kept. The rooms were beautiful and very clean, and every thing you need from wine to snacks is only a few steps away! Only wish we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: Stayed in both the Davidson and Esther rooms...both were amazing!

This was by far the best B&B I have ever been to. Besides being very affordable the place was Amazing! My girlfriend and I came down for a wedding but decided to stay an extra day to hang out in Asheville and stay in this B&B cause it was so sweet.

Complimentary coffee makers on first 2 floors to be used by anyone. Free snacks always available, free waters in the fridge, also, and I have never seen this before, complimentary Wine, red or white, available whenever! Also the big fridge available for any leftovers you might have was very handy.
The rooms were very clean and quite nice. Remote controlled fireplaces in each room, ceiling fans, and wall units were also installed in case it was too warm. Noise was never an issue and the place felt very cozy. After the first two nights we moved upstairs to a 3rd floor room and it was definitley worth it. Despite the room being cheaper the bathroom was at least twice as big as the room downstairs! Also the decorations on the 3rd floor were really cool! Definitely something you shouldn't miss!

Also the breakfast was AMAZING every day. Fresh baked muffins and croissants, local fruit, and delicious egg dishes.

The hosts were also very pleasant and charming. Also if you are lucky he might play his bagpipes for you.

Room Tip: 3rd floor is cheaper and bigger bathrooms but the ceiling is a little lower but otherwise just as go...

My wife and I just spent 4 nights at the Dry Ridge in and had a great stay! Howard and Kristen are very kind and genuine, they truly serve their guests and we couldn't have asked for anything more from them. The house and rooms are very clean, the atmosphere is great and the price is reasonable. We would go back anytime!

Room Tip: We stayed in Harley- nice and cozy on the third floor.

The Dry Ridge Inn offers a quiet and secluded location in Weaverville, just about a 10 minute drive from Ashevillle. The rooms are cosy and nicely decorated. Breakfasts are tasty, with a different delight each morning. While there are communal refreshments in the hallway (wine, water, crackers, cookies), there are no coffee-making facilities in the rooms. We really enjoyed our stay and found it to be a relaxing experience. It's nice to sit outside and enjoy the water feature, relax in the yard and listen to the birds.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable, however check the size of the bathrooms.
