I can't say enough great things about this B&B. We've stayed at a lot of them, and this is one of the best.
The property is beautifully maintained and the rooms are spotless. And you can't beat the location--It's in a lovely neighborhood (Montford Historic District) that's just an easy, 20-minute walk into town.
Innkeepers Nancy and Larry Merrill are very welcoming and helpful. We were amazed when they told us they hadn't even been doing this a full two years. Everything seemed to run so smoothly.
And you won't go hungry staying here. The food is amazing. Every three-course breakfast starts with a homemade quick bread. We were there for three nights, so we enjoyed (Ghirandelli) chocolate chip bread the first morning, date walnut bread the next, and citrus bread on our last day, all of which were delicious. Then came house-made granola with yogurt and fresh fruit (and different combinations of fruit each day, no less). And finally, the main event. While we were there, we got to try the strawberry french toast (outstanding!), quiche (amazing!), and blueberry pancakes (to die for). And the coffee is great, too.
After eating that breakfast, we didn't need lunch; it lasted us until late afternoon, which is when Nancy and Larry put out a very nice spread of cheese and crackers, red and white wine, and something sweet like homemade apple cake and/or brownies. And if that's still not enough for you, there are bowls full of Hershey's miniatures in all the public areas.
We felt quite pampered and at ease here. Our biggest challenge? Trying to save room for dinner at some of Asheville's terrific restaurants.
