“A clean, comfortable getaway.”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

The two gentlemen who run the b & b do a fantastic job. The place is well-kept, clean and everything is comfortable. They are very hospitable and knowledgeable about the area.
I would suggest that if you are a light sleeper to request an upstairs room, as some movement could be heard in the downstairs rooms.
Gene can cook some great dishes, but I am spoiled by other b & b's having at least 2 choices for breakfast. Some of the things presented to me were not things I really care to eat...
But, I would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay if in the area.

Room Tip: Upstairs is quieter, downstairs is roomier...

From our greeting on the driveway, to the pillow chocolates and cookies and the details in the room - we knew that this was somewhere special. The breakfasts are superb - so much is home-made by Gene, a professional chef. It was also a great pleasure to relax and chat with Gene over that extra cup of coffee at breakfast. Acorn BnB is well situated for the Blue Ridge Parkway, which we were driving up, and Biltmore Estate so it's handy for the visitor to the Asheville area. Also, there is a good restaurant about a mile down the road, which is very convenient. Stay here for a really special experience!

Gene is a phenomenal chef. The house is quiet and secluded, with an eclectic and endlessly fascinating decor. The rooms are comfortable, and well appointed in all of the details. The little things: the towels, the soaps, the homemade cookies as bedtime treats, the bedside chocolates, the pictures and names on the chalkboard as a welcome and goodbye... all wonderful little touches that made the stay even better. The decor is unique and interesting. The Disney collection was a work of devotion, the kaleidescopes works of childhood wonder, and the broadway show memorabilia a reflection of the overall sophistication that Gene and Bob bring to their hospitality.

The breakfast was hands-down one of the best I've had at a B&B. Pull up a chair and get to know the proprietors, as they alone are worth the trip.

We had a very nice patio off the room, which added to the relaxing atmosphere. Gene made us feel so welcome, helped us with the luggage when we arrived, and even went out of his way to find some gluten-free snacks and breakfast food for me.
The Dogwood room has a shared bath, but we were the only guests on the lower floor. The shower was dark (so be aware if you wish to shave), but incredibly clean bathroom and we enjoyed the luxurious Turkish towels.
We stayed one night, which was unfortunate since we couldn't keep experiencing the breakfasts! Gene's quality and presentation of the food were excellent. After the fruit salad, breads and Italian omelet, we drove one hour south to our next stop in North Carolina, and found out upon arrival that we left one of my husband's t shirts at the Acorn B&B. Gene drove to our location to deliver the shirt. He really goes the extra mile to deliver genuine service.

Room Tip: The lower level rooms share a bath and living areas. Great for a small group traveling together.

From the moment we arrived to be greeted by Gene as we got out of the car to the chat about so many things over breakfast on our last day our whole stay at Acorn BNB was a delight. Our room - Magnolia - was wonderful especially the cookies ( homemade) and chocolates! Everything was of a very high quality and showed an attention to detail and the desire to please guests which we have not come across anywhere else we have stayed in the world! Breakfasts were truly amazing and delicious. The whole experience of staying here is something that will be one of the outstanding memories of our trip from the UK. A delightful place with delightful hosts!

Overall a great pick, a perfect retreat. Hard to find, off the beaten path, but certainly worth the drive a little out of town. Innkeeper could not be better - he is a natural in hospitality - 1st class. Not only that, but a chef by trade, so prepare for some excellent breakfasts.
You are safe picking any of the 5 rooms at Acorn. Pets are welcome in the downstairs rooms. I choice Acorn because I was originally traveling with a sick cat. When my cat passed away I kept my reservation and even still stayed in the room that allowed pets. I worried that it may be a bit more beat up from dog use but there was no evidence that any pet had ever been there. The room was perfect and I felt lucky to have the privacy of the large downstairs area and my own entrance.
Hope to return to Asheville and stay again at Acorn. Thanks Gene!
