How many ways can we praise this lovely B&B? For starters, the hosts, Susan and James are warm, welcoming, knowledgeable and generous. They have travelled widely and lived abroad for many years, and know exactly what makes for a special stay.
Each evening at 5:30, a large array of delicious appetizers was beautifully presented, and accompanied by wines from the Biltmore. What a fitting end to a long day of activities, and a lovely beginning to a delightful evening in front of the fireplace, sharing adventures with the friends who stayed with us at the Carolina.
Our room was large, tastefully furnished, and with an amazingly comfortable bed. As a special treat, there were fresh baked delights waiting for us by our bedside every evening. About the only thing that rousted us up in the morning was the thought of Susan's inventive and scrumptious gourmet breakfasts, and the HOT, flavorful coffee.
The Carolina is within easy walking distance of downtown, but because of the cold weather (17 degrees one day), we chose to drive into town to visit the galleries suggested by James. His recommendations were spot on, as were the restaurants he suggested, Tupelo Honey and Table.
My husband and I are experienced travelers and never return to the same place twice, preferring to explore new B&B's. This time we are making an exception, and are already planning our next visit to the Carolina. What a treat!
