“Highly Recommended B&B!”
Reviewed August 19, 2010

My husband and I stayed from Fri-Mon and had an incredible experience at the Cedar Crest Inn. It is a beautiful victorian home with a spectacular porch to enjoy breakfast or the scenery. Drew and Jeff were extremely accomodating in every way. Each guest received personnal attention and service. The breakfasts were delicious with terrrific servers. We were given excellent restaurant recommendations and tourism advice. The rooms were very comfortable and charming. It is also conveniently located to downtown and Biltmore Village. We will definately return. We will always have fond memories of our visit to Asheville.

Without staying at competing Inns in Asheville, I would happily recommend this Inn. The Inn is well located, and consists of a series of comfortable and well laid out (detached) cottages, amidst well-landscaped lawns, surrounding a large main house. Those who wish to gather at the main house for a (scenic) breakfast in the morning, and a great (free - when we were there) glass of wine (or two) in the evening. This is primarily a couple's retreat, though as a group of 3 friends travelling through the US, we were glad to find this B&B, and found the Innkeeper Drew extremely helpful. We ended up staying 3 nights rather than the originally intended 1 night, and met several interesting people from various parts of the US.

The place was lovely and attracted a very nice clientele, something that is always helpful when staying at any B&B. Given the price we paid, however, I was a tad bit underimpressed with the three course breakfast. Again, I say to you....this is supposed to be a high-end B&B and the breakfast we were served was average at best. In addition, the bedding and the towels/toiletries were also average to below average. This B&B is charming and location is great....if they would up the standards on the extras, it would certainly be on my "keeper" list...as it stands, it is low on my alternate list as B& B's go in the Asheville area.

cedarcrestinn, Manager at Cedar Crest Inn, responded to this review, September 18, 2010
I have contacted the guest and they did seem pleased with their overall stay, however voiced their concern on the room rate, breakfast, and amenities. In response to their concern as I told the guest I was happy to refund some of their money to an amount that they felt was fair (even after an initial discount was given to them.) The refund was respectfully declined. All we have left to do at this point is make sure that no one else has the same issues that this guest had. We have gone out and purchased higher quality linens and have "stepped up" our breakfast. Even though this guest was the first to complain about either, if one guest feels it is not sufficient it is worth an evaluation and change. We pride ourselves in offering the best in the city and will continue to do so. We hope that the guest will provide us with another chance to show what we have to offer.

Breathtaking home. The grounds are well kept. The interior decor is astonishing. If you need anything, simply ask any of the staff and you will get it. Drew is a wealth of knowledge of the area and was spot on with suggestions. We will be back again. Cedar Crest is a must stay though it will spoil you to what to expect in a Bed and Breakfast.

My husband and I loved this B&B. Service was awesome, the food was great! It may be a bit expensive, but it is well worth it. Wine and drinks were free flowing throughout the dayThe inn was not very busy during our stay, which was on a weekday. We arrived 6 hours early, but we were still able to check-in and was even upgraded to the Queen Anne suite. The innkeeper was very knowledgable of the area. The inn was a 0.3 mile walk from the Historic Biltmore district and very close to the Biltmore mansion. From the Historic Biltmore village, we took the trolley tour of Asheville. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. The ambiance took us back to the olden days. If you are looking for a romantic and relaxing place to stay, this inn is a top pick.

WE stayed here and the manager and owner went out of there way to make our stay the best. The house is so beautiful and clean. The Inn is in a great location near the Biltmore House. We walked to the Biltmore Village and caught the Trolley. We took a Cab to downtown for the fireworks. We will be back in the fall for the change of colors, thanks for a great time.

My girlfriend took me to The Cedar Crest Inn for my 30 birthday! It was the most quaint, beautiful place with a wonderful atmosphere. Everything from the intricate stained glass in the foyer to the two resident cats who roam the grounds. From my understanding they are strictly outdoor cats. Phantom is a friendly black and white cat and Joey who is a adorable, cross-eyed Himalayan. Who both greeted us on our return from our morning run. At breakfast, which included fresh fruit, muffins and sweet breads, and silver dollar pancakes or french toast, we read the morning paper. Various magazines and newspapers are always on hand around the house. They think of everything. Drew the concierge always makes sure that their are fresh cookies and an always flowing bottle of wine....free of charge... I know crazy right... is waiting on you when you walk in from a long day of sightseeing. If you would prefer a day of leisure you can spend it reading one of the many books left is various nooks around the inn with a note "borrow or trade". Drew also helped us with securing our very affordable tickets to the Biltmore Estate and suggested a great place to have lunch... the Corner Kitchen. By the way the restaurant is literally in a house. We sat on the patio. It was great, the food was wonderful. We had an excellent time and I would most definitely recommend staying at The Cedar Crest Inn to everyone!!
