After deciding that I wanted to visit Asheville for the first time - I did tons of research online and this place looked great so I booked well in advance. My husband and I stayed here for our 3 year wedding anniversary back in October 2005 for 2 nights and I completely fell in love with this place. The atmosphere is so warm and inviting. This was our first time ever staying at a bed and breakfast and I really though it was a neat experience. Getting to know the other guests at breakfast time is fun (if you aren't a social person then maybe a B&B stay is not for you).
The bottomless cookie jar was a wonderful touch as well and the "Vino Therapy". The calmness and serenity of this quaint bed and breakfast makes you yearn for more long after you've left. I honestly felt so relaxed here (which is something that is very hard for me). The inn keepers are incredibly friendly and this place is so well decorated and enchanting. The atmosphere is relaxing, very quiet and serene - great for couples - don't recommend taking children here.
We stayed in the Kress room, which was very nice and had a lovely bathroom as well. The only thing about this room that my husband did not like was the TV was too small - but as I told him - we did not take this trip to watch TV! (men!)
The breakfast was so DELICIOUS and served on the front porch along with morning coffee. I do wish Breakfast had been served a bit earlier though so we could go ahead and start our day.
I still think of the beautiful antique tablecloths how nicely everything was set up (plates, etc).
The Inn Keepers were very nice and polite and they actually left in the middle of our stay for their own well deserved vacation. They had alternate Inn Keepers who came in to watch over the place while they were gone and these people were just so nice and sweet - I really enjoyed getting to know them. Loved the Golden Retriever Bailey (What a sweetie!)
I would recommend this B&B time and time again to anyone going to Asheville and I hope to return to Asheville very soon to enjoy this delightful town!
