“Perfect for our 15th Anniversary getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Fantastic weekend with perfect accommodations!! I booked our reservations at the Melange B&B, paid in full and then told my husband where we were staying! I have always wanted to stay in a bed and breakfast and could never get him to agree! I figured after 15 years married, I was going to finally get my own way:) Needless to say, he loved everything about the Melange as much as I did!! He tells me we will definitely be returning!!

The house is absolutely gorgeous, clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Scarlet room were we had our own bathroom in the room (a must for my husband!!) with the best shower I have ever had the luxury of using, a refrigerator with complimentary drinks, a coffee pot with coffee and tea available, flat screen tv with cable and a DVD player (with plenty of movies available if desired), all of which were located/arranged in the room as to not take away from the decor or calm, peaceful, romantic mood the room provides.

Mehmet & Lale are the most personable, friendly, kind and most accommodating hosts. I couldn't leave without giving them a hug!

Their food is out of this world!! We highly recommend making reservations for the private dining...5 amazing courses...I particularly recommend the Lentil and Sweet Potato Stuffed Samosa appetizer and for dessert the Rote Grütze: Puréed Delight of Raspberries! My husband recommends the same, but adds the squash and roasted red pepper soup, he says "it's the best soup he has ever had!" (All served on the most beautiful antique china!!)

During our visit, one couple also staying at the Melange, told us that the roses in their room, were arranged in an antique vase, from Turkey, that had been Lale's mother's. Another visitor from Florida told us he has been coming to Hendersonville with his family, every year for over 10 years and that they wouldn't stay anywhere else! You will understand as soon as you arrive, meet Mehmet and Lale, sleep in one of their beds, and take a bite of the food they so meticulously and thoughtfully prepare and serve!!
I can't wait to have the opportunity to return!

My wife and I stayed here in June of 2014. We were in the area to pick our son up from camp, and wanted to stay somewhere more romantic than a chain hotel. Melange could not have been more perfect!

The house is a little short of 100 years old, and shows the character and charm of a more serene era. We enjoyed hanging out in various spots in the house and on the grounds. We loved the collection of lamps in each room.

While the property is worthy of kudos, the undisputed highlight of our stay was our candlelit dinner on the patio. I am an acknowledged foodie and my wife has some dietary restrictions, so we generally have to request changes to the menu when we go out. This was no problem whatsoever for the Melange owners, who are also gourmet chefs. All the ingredients were fresh and of the highest quality. The tuna we had for our main course was outstanding! Breakfast, the next morning, was equally fresh and inspired.

Can't say enough about wonderful couple that runs Melange. They were simply wonderful, inviting, and attentive. Although we were on the property for less than a day, we felt refreshed as if we had been there for a long weekend. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: I believe we were in the Emerald Room. From the peeks we took into other rooms, they all look good...

Green Features: All of the food was acquired locally and prepared fresh. There was an unobtrusive recycling bin close to our room, where we left our empty water bottles from the road trip.

We researched Hendersonville, NC bed and breakfast inns online and were impressed with Melange. But when we arrived we were even more impressed. Though it is located in the city, I was pleasantly surprised to find the inn very peaceful and quiet - a priority for me when on vacation! Any inn experience is defined by the hosts, and Lale and Mehmet were most welcoming and gracious. Their inn is beautiful, and the breakfast satisfying. We promised to return in the future, and recommend the Melange to those experienced with B&Bs and those new to the idea!

This was without a doubt the most wonderful B&B.we have ever been in. Mehmet and Lale were so kind and helpful, the setting beautiful, the inn exquisite ,and the food spectacular. The owners are very informative and unhurried in their presentation. We had the candlelight dinner for 2 and it was superb! We will definitely return to this wonderful inn and these delightful owners.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Cinnamon room....surrounded by windows and tree tops! It was wonderful!!

As we turned into the driveway, a sign indicated, "Stress-free Zone". Later, upon exit a simple plaque stated, "Gratitude". These were the book-end sentiments for our time of gracious comfort at Melange. The host and hostess were warm and unhurried as they oriented us to the spacious home and gardens, shared information about the area, answered questions about the eclectic decorations, and served us delicious meals beautifully presented. The Cinnamon Room was well appointed with vintage furnishings, modern plumbing, and current technology. There are many conversation areas as well as quiet places to sit alone in the large public spaces. Lale and Mehmet Ozelsel have created a unique haven of loveliness an tranquility for their guests. We are eager to experience Melange again.

Green Features: We noticed energy efficient bulbs in the many vintage lamps and rain barrels on the property. The rooms have individual efficient air conditioning units. Certainly the gardens are well tended with many native plants. We observed a high regard for plants, animals, nature.

This is a lovely place and the owners Mehmet and Lale were so kind and helpful. We are a family of four and we stayed in the Rose Suite for one night enroute to South Carolina. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The breakfast was outstanding and Mehmet and Lale were able to accommodate our need to eat gluten free. We talked at great length about food allergies/intolerances and the lengths that they go to in order to help their customers. Hendersonville is a cute town and we will definitely be back to the Melange! Thank you Mehmet and Lale!

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Melange B & B. The food was excellent. Lale is a self-taught chef with some cutlery and pastry experience. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning with variety of juice, coffee, and tea. He offered us a triple chocolate treat on our first night at the inn. They have good knowledge of surrounding area. We love the downtown area with shops and unique restaurants. We did not branch off too far. Great stay and recommended.
