Bon Paul and Sharky's was a great solution for my little solo trip to Asheville. The hotel prices in the area are expensive. Therefore, I stayed at Bon Paul's and it was a great solution for a lady traveling by herself because the other guests were so nice and the employees (Zach and Nathan) were very hospitable. I would compare it to a casual B&B (sans breakfast). A great experience overall and the house had a lot of quirky decor which made me feel right at home.
