“Simply beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We were looking for a special place to celebrate our 25th anniversary and explore Asheville. We've stayed in B&B's before but this was an exceptional experience. Beautiful location, great breakfasts and warm hospitality. We hope to return someday soon.

We just concluded a week's stay at the Bent Creek Lodge, and everything about the place is top-notch. The rooms are comfortable and clean, there are lots of places to rest and relax, the breakfasts are fabulous, and the innkeepers and their staff are just about the nicest people ever. Bent Creek Lodge is close to everything -- just 10 minutes from downtown Asheville -- yet you'd think you were miles out in the woods.

This is one of my favorite B&B's in Asheville. It is simple yet elegant. Outstanding service, breakfast, and location. It is extremely clean and not dusty, which is often a problem with B&Bs. As soon as we arrive, I feel myself relaxing. One of my favorite B&B's..

Room Tip: For some reason we have always ended up with the Bike Room. It is a nice room and does not disappoi...

My husband and I stayed over Memorial Day weekend 2014. My husband is NOT a fan of B&B and he was very skeptical about the stay. He loved it and very happy once we arrived and was not disappointed. The breakfast was hot and healthy. They even made a pitcher of ice tea just for me to have every morning since I am not a coffee drinker. We enjoyed the welcome we received (including the dogs), the gardens, porch swings and rocking chairs, and walking trails. The owners/staff were friendly and helpful but were not overbearing and allowed for our quiet time. The room (wildflower room) was very clean and comfy. The sheets were the best I have ever felt. The only complaint would be the deep whirlpool tub is difficult to step out of and would suggest installing some handles to hold on to. The location is very quiet and remote but less than 15 minutes from downtown and the Biltmore. They have detailed directions to attractions and restaurants that was very helpful. There was really nothing we done without for except a TV in the room. I didn't miss it, my husband did during NBA playoffs. Come to find out there is a room with a king size bed and TV...I tricked him :) Other guests were very respectful and the noise level was low if any at all. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in the Asheville area. We would highly recommend it for peace and tranquility when you need it.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary at Bent Creek, and it exceeded our expectations for a great weekend. The Lodge bedrooms were updated and rustic with views of the colorful gardens, and porch access at night to see the stars and tree silhouettes . The Wildflower Room was quiet and private, and we rarely heard other guests.

We enjoyed tasty, healthy breakfasts on the deck shaded to feel the cool mountain air.
The natural beauty of the setting and the rustic charm of the lodge is such that we actually made a point of coming back during the day to relax and kick back.

The employees were really sweet and gave us helpful recommendations for restaurants and locations to view mountain vistas on the Blue Ridge Parkway. And the owners have made sure every little detail helps contribute to a relaxing time at this wonderful bed and breakfast.

We stayed in the Water Room. Clean, quiet, comfortable. Perfect. The breakfast were tasty and very filling. Gorgeous property surrounded by woods. Convenient to the Biltmore Estate, downtown Ashville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fabulous all the way around!

Awesome stay. Great service. Beautiful home and garden. Great stay while biking the Bent Creek trails.
Also close to tubing, canoeing and downtown Asheville where great food is abundant.
We will return and bring friends!
