“Like being at home only better!”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

The tranquility and serenity that we experienced during our stay is beyond words. The plush Biltmore room, the rushing of the room side brook and the spring blossom scent in the air prompted immediate relaxation. The proprietress, Judy and Joe were welcoming and engaging. The homemade biscuits were melt in your mouth delectable.

Room Tip: Reserve the Biltmore room!

Only stayed 1 night on our way to the mountains, but felt like family! You won't find better people than Joe and Judy. Situated at the end of the small road, mountains on all sides, little babbling brook, wrap around porch (all rooms have access doors) on both levels makes for a great getaway. Five star breakfast and good stories for all! Hang out with the little extras or be private, both are relaxing here. Green room was very comfortable, only small complaint would be the shower water pressure. Closer to Asheville than it looks on the map, maybe 20 minutes to the Biltmore area. Best of all, the price was lowest of all other B&Bs within 30 miles when we were looking.

We stayed at Rock Laurel for 3 nights to explore the Ashville area.
The property is in a very remote location by a babbling stream. Lovely situation although a little away from restaurants etc. Joe and Judy were exceptional hosts and plied us with (free) wine and beer. Joe always has a story and is very willing to tell it, just avoid politics!!!
Breakfast was exceptional and we didn't need lunch whilst we were there.
VERY friendly, we felt more like visiting family than guests.

My wife and I stayed at this delightful B&B for two August nights while visiting the Vanderbilt Mansion and friends in Asheville. Judy and Joe are consumate hosts and prepared the most incredible breakfasts both mornings. Our bedroom was very spacious and quiet, with just the sound of an adjacent stream to lull us to sleep. Highly recommended and great value for money.

Stayed one night. Close to Ashville, great welcoming hosts, best breakfast I’ve ever had at B & B. A great start to our vacation in Western North Carolina. Would love to go back:)

I wanted a country setting, and I got much more than that. The hosts were warm and made you feel like family, if you were so inclined. The first night I was so tired we went straight to our room. The next night we joined them for beverages in their livingroom for a fun and lively conversation. Breakfasts featured fresh buttermilk biscuits and hot applesauce (yum!). We had lovely fruit bowls, eggs however you wanted them, sausage, bacon, ham, and as we expressed interest, grits with sausage gravy. We never had lunch the days we were there and probably shouldn't have had dinner. The breakfast room was beautiful and our rooms were quite large. We'd definitely recommend this place and would come back if we ever visited this area again.

From Candler you drive six miles of lovely scenery and then you find Rock Laurel B&B, drive over a small bridge with a beautiful brook running under it and you feel like your home. It may not be home but Joe and Judy will make you feel at home. They serve a great breakfast and our room was clean and comfortable. The setting around the house with the brook, Blue Ridge mountains, and flowers is outstanding. Rock Laurel is a short drive to the Biltmore which is the biggest attraction in the area. Joe is good at telling you about the attractions in the area and the best way to get there. Unfortunately we only had one night but this would be a good place to stay for three or four days. The price is right and is highly recommended.
