Our fourth Thanksgiving and always a pleasure and like being with family for the holiday. Meals are outstanding, diet before you go, I gained two pounds. We love being walking distance to a lake and town where there is plenty of shopping to be done. It's our home away from home and you will be made to feel so welcome.... More

Charming and quaint Bed and Breakfast with restaurant. We have been there several times and they never disappoint. Staff is very accommodating and the food is amazing. Don't forget dessert. It is so worth the calories!

I first heard of the Red Rocker Inn while in the mountains thirty years ago but only recently ate here for the first time. That was a mistake. We will be back again before we head back home. The food was excellent (the desserts are to die for), and the service was as good as we've ever had. It probably... More

Congenial staff. Great food. Very limited wine cellar and no bar. Fast service. Humongous tasty desserts cake slice big enough for three to share. Reasonably priced.

My husband and I were on a bus trip to the Asheville area and our first night's meal was here. The staff was very inviting and did a great job with our large group. The meal was terrific and the desserts were huge, enough for 2 nights dessert. Definitely would recommend this place.

There were 10 of us who ate here....my wife's brothers and sisters and spouses for a reunion in Black Mountain. The owner was so accommodating...we had a great table, the server could not have been more helpful, and everyone in the group enjoyed the appetizers, entrees and desserts. I had the pot roast....out of this world. Fish selections were excellent...and... More

I have had the breakfast buffet at least six times; always superb! Mother's Day, Easter, Christmas, my birthday, Church dinners...these occasions have been delicious and fantastic. The desserts are awesome. Makes my mouth water just thinking about them.

We chose this Inn as the site for our destination wedding and reception. Our party totaled 16, including one 4 year old. Everyone was delighted with the style, service, food, and willingness of the owners to accommodate us. Because of the high humidity and temperatures we elected to have the marriage ceremony inside on the enclosed porch. Owner Doug was... More
