James and Susan think of everything! Greeted immediately upon arrival then encouraged to relax. The food was fun and fresh! My sister and I loved the happy hour, got great suggestions from James, and had a pleasant walk to downtown for dinner and drinks. Thank you and we WILL be back. Almost forgot- the bed was heavenly!

It's hard to put into words how amazing our experience was. First, James and Susan are amazing owners, incredibly attentive, wonderfully educated about Asheville, and just delightful people! My wife and I stayed in the Cottage for our honeymoon and it was phenomenal - breakfast in bed each morning, accomodations away from the main house but close enough to enjoy others - perfect! The breakfasts were just spectacular and very different for an eggs and bacon kind of guy. The restaurants they recommended were all wonderful, we tried about half of them, and we were always stunned at how good the food and service were. The afternoon wine happy hour was also enjoyable, and the front porch is great for relaxing and socializing. I could go on and on, just stay here if you're wondering where to stay in the Asheville area. We know we'll be back!

Room Tip: The Cottage is great for a couple!

We visited Asheville with another couple for a short, three night getaway from Atlanta. My wife and I have been to Asheville twice in the last two years. This time I wanted to stay in the Montford district, so we picked Carolina B&B based on its TripAdvisor ratings and proximity to downtown. Parking can be a hassle downtown, but from the B&B it's a relatively short walk. We could not have been more pleased with the hospitality of James and Susan, the food, and the condition of the rooms. We hope to be back again next year and plan on another great stay with James and Susan. If you are thinking about booking the Carolina B&B, stop thinking - - just do it. Now.

Overall our trip to the Carolina B&B was fantastic! We arrived very late on a friday evening and James and Susan had conveniently left a key and directions on the back porch for us. We were also greeted in our room by a delicious dessert. Throughout our whole stay our hosts were wonderfully accommodating and very helpful. James and Susan were the perfect hosts providing conversation and advice whenever needed! The food was delicious as well... the breakfast in the morning (especially the salmon and egg dish) was excellent! The wine and hor d'oeuvres in the evening were wonderful and it was nice to be able to chat with the other guests. The cookies available downstairs were quite tasty as well! I would highly recommend the Carolina B&B to anyone and I would definitely return.

My husband and 7 other members of our extended family decended on the Carolina B&B on a cool rainy afternoon in May. Our host, James, met us at the door and immediately made us feel right at home. From that moment until we left, two days later, our every need was met in a most gracious manner. From what we had read about the inn, we were expecting the delicious breakfasts, but we were completely amazed at the homemade hors d'oeuvres and wine that was served from 5:30-6:30 in the afternoon. There was always coffee, hot tea and cold drinks available as well as homemade snacks. I can not think of a single complaint that I would make about this lovely place. Our family would certainly like to make another trip to this B&B in the future. James and Susan have found just the right blend of being helpful without being intrusive.

The Carolina B&B is meticulously clean and beautifully restored to an arts and crafts era home. The proprietors are gracious, helpful and focused in every way on the guest experience. We would be remiss if we didn't mention the scrumptious food made from fresh local ingredients prepared masterfully.

Room Tip: Generous rooms located on a quiet street

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here 3 nights last week. James and Susan Murray run a great Inn! From the wine and great hors d ouvres from 5:30 to 6:30 to the comfortable room topped off with breakfast menus that are truly out of this world!

This is the finest B&B we have ever stayed in and recommend it without reservation.

Room Tip: All rooms appeared well done. We were in Cardinal
