We absolutely loved our time at the Inn. My husband and I had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast previously, and we had no clue what to expect. We are both history buffs and love Victorian era history, so we were drawn to the Inn from the information we had read about the house. This Inn and its employees were very charming, and we enjoyed the fact that they went the extra mile to make sure our stay was great. The room was wonderful, very well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, the grounds were serene and relaxing, and all in all it was like stepping back in time and out of it. We WILL be back, there is no doubt. We would highly recommend the Inn to anyone.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our expreience at the Cedar Crest Inn! Upon arriving, we were welcomed by one of the inn keepers, Mallory. She was very kind and thoughtful. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in the Cedar Crest Inn's 2 bedroom guest cottage. Each morning, we had a wonderful three course breakfast in the main house. Drew, the other innkeeper at the Cedar Crest Inn, was kind enough to give us a full tour of this beautiful home and answer all of our questions. Overall, we had a wonderful experience at the Cedar Crest Inn and my wife and I would highly reccommend it to anyone looking for a quiet retreat in the mountains of North Carolina!

First impression of Cedar Crest upon driving up was this place is gorgeous . Mallory (the young lady whom runs Cedar Crest) greeted us at the door. Upon entering the house it's like steping back in time, it's amazing. She checked us in, offered us tea and snacks, & showed us to our room. We stayed in the Queen Anne room and loved it. The night was so quite and peaceful. Breakfast was SO DELICIOUS, we had baked pear with raspberry sauce, muffin, french toast & sausage. After breakfast Mallory gave us a tour of the whole house. Every room in this house is unbelievable.
The house and service here is magnificent

The truth is mere words really can't explain how great this house and the service is, it's something that must be experienced .

We can't wait to go back.

Stayed here over Christmas with five family members and very much enjoyed the homey feel of our cottage. We rented the entire cottage and had four bedrooms and three and half baths. They very graciously put up a lighted Christmas tree and left decorations so we could decorate the tree Christmas Eve, very nice touch since we cooked in Christmas Eve. The Inn itself was nicely decorated for Christmas, very Victorian.
The only drawback was the breakfast. Two of the three morning we had the same thing, egg quiche thing. The other morning we had blueberry pancakes that were already cool by the time we got them. We had heard guest talk about a killer french toast and thought that on the third morning we would finally get it, but not to be.
Has a lovely outdoor patio for summer, but it was covered in snow at this time of year.

We stayed here with my 3 friends and has a wonderful experience. From the breakfast to the great time in Asheville. The staff helped us with dinner reservations and understanding the town. WE went to the Biltmore house which is right across the street and downtown is a wuick right out the parking lot. We enjoyed everything and the staff and the nightly desserts we a nice final event before going to bed. WE are planning on coming back real soon.

We loved our honeymoon/Thanksgiving stay at Cedar Crest! The service was very very friendly and prompt. We had three breakfasts and Thanksgiving brunch. All the food was wonderful. The room was cozy and clean. The Inn is located very close to the Biltmore and downtown Asheville which was very convenient! We will most certainly be staying here again as soon as possible, and hopefully bring more people with us!
